    In The Shadows

    Post by Nolan Carde on Thu Apr 19, 2012 9:49 pm

    Nolan's shoes clicked against the shiny black floors, absentmindedly twirling the revolver in one hand. He stared around the cavernous hallway. It wasn't the fanciest place he'd ever been, nor was it the most impressive, but it was certainly classy. He muttered a spell to himself, and all the lights flicked off. The utter darkness brought an ominous feeling to the room and a smile to Nolan's face.

    With each step up the stairs, a new scenario of the Whelans' death popped into his head. He hadn't killed anyone in ages, and he was excited. Nolan stopped halfway across the upstairs hallway when muffled notes reached his ear. It wasn't professional level, but he respected the effort, and it wasn't so bad it was offensive. He decided to let whoever was in that room live, make the murder just that much classier.

    A loud bark echoed from the other side of him, and without a second thought he shot out a silencing spell. Nolan's eyes scanned the heavily guarded door, making sure the dog was securely tied. He was tempted to break into the room just for the sake of pissing off it's owner, but he couldn't afford to linger for too long. The sedatives on the manor's staff would only last for so long. He put away his wand for a moment to stock the gun with his special brand of bullets. The red ones.

    He brought his ear to the door, just to be sure they were really asleep. One hand turned the latch without making a sound, casting a sliver of light across the room. He paused again, waiting for any sounds of shifting fabric. Advancing into the room, his eyes made out two figures in a large bed. Nolan frowned, "Asleep are we?" he aimed his gun at one of the figures, "Shame. I'd hate to see you die in peace."

    A sharp "click" came from the revolver, and a couple of seconds later he heard noises coming from the bed as its occupants arose. Almost immediately, a soft shriek echoed around the large room, and a masculine voice growled,

    "What the hell do you think you're doing? Do you have any idea who you're dealing with? Get that filthy muggle weapon out of my house." He was impressed by how much the man was holding back his fear, but his voice still shook just the slightest bit.

    Nolan smirked, "Oh, come on. You're not even going to beg for mercy?" The man didn't move. "Well, alright," he replied with a shrug, pulling the trigger. The only sound that came from the gun was a short puffing noise, and a crack as the bullet broke though a shield charm. The man cried out when it hit him in the arm.

    The man's cry turned into a laugh, "Let me give you a piece of advice," the skin around his wound began to glow, illuminating the inside of his arm, making every little vein visible underneath the skin, "Before you go and try to shoot someone. LEARN TO FUCKING AI-" Before he had the chance to finish his thought, Ahern Whelan burst into a pile of ash. The woman next to him screamed.

    "Madame, if you would be so kind as to lower your voice," he said with a pained frown, pointing the revolver at her, "I get enough headaches as it is." Tears began to fall down her face, and he cocked the gun,

    "Please. I-I have children. Who's going to take care of them if I die?" He raised an eyebrow at her, relishing the clear anguish in her voice. It was the women who were the most fun to kill. They were always so good at pleading for their lives.

    "Something tells me they're not who you're really worried about," Nolan shot the gun a second time. Eithne Whelan screamed for the remaining five seconds of her life. Nolan grinned as he watched her instantaneous cremation.

    Standing in the middle of his bedroom the young Whelan heir played his violin lightly, the soft strains of the music just load enough to hear. He had been sent to bed hours ago but couldn't find it in him to sleep. He practiced his instrument, more getting the subtle movements then the music. A loud bark from Brutus drew him from his playing and he stopped a moment to listen. Maybe something had spooked the dog? Shrugging his shoulders Zephan continued playing until an odd sound disturbed him and then his mother screamed.

    Feeling a bit scared Zephan belted a knife to his waist and took his bow in one hand and violin in the other and plodded out into the hallway, shutting the door quietly behind him. Making his way slowly down the hall the boy felt an anxiousness growing in his chest. Almost like a weight had been placed on him. Pushing open his parents bedroom door gently his eyes grew big at the man standing there next to an empty bed.

    "Where are mommy and daddy," he asked, not listening to the voice in his head telling him to keep quiet and run.

    Nolan put his gun away and turned toward the voice, putting a gentle smile on his face, "Ahh, you must be my little musician," he made his voice sound as non-thretening as possible, which he was pretty good at. If there was one thing Nolan Carde excelled at more than killing, it was talking his way out of trouble, "I was wondering who was making all that noise. You're quite good, you know."

    Judging by that, and the belt around his waist that almost certainly had a knife in it, Nolan could tell the boy was no fool, "I think you know exactly where they are. But if it makes you feel better, they're right where they belong." He gestured towards the bed, "Why don't you see for yourself?"

    A part of him wanted to preen at the compliment. He knew that he was quite talented when it came to music and to hear someone other than his sister say so was nice. However, Zephan knew it was neither the time nor the place especially with a strange man standing in his parents bedroom.

    He took a hesitant step foreward before changing his mind and stepping back again shaking his head. If his parents were still able to speak they would have already yelled and shouted at him for coming into their room. "No," Zephan said quietly, his seven year old side showing just a bit. "They aren't there anymore. They've gone and left me." The boy lifted his head slightly with a trace of fear in his blue-grey eyes as he looked up at the man. "Are you going to kill me too?"

    Nolan's eyes scanned the Zephan's face, picking out the hint of fear riddling his features. He knew that, were the boy to know his parents, really know them, he would have thanked the man.

    "No," He said, his clear, icy eyes completely expressionless, "I won't kill you unless I have to." He walked to the door in a few long strides. He placed his hand on the handle and turned his head back to the boy, "I hope we never meet again, Zephan Whelan."

    With that, he stepped out the door and into the hallway, turning off the lights with the flick of his wand.

    Zephan watched the man start to leave and for a small moment since he had felt the burden settle on his shoulders he felt relief. There would be no more insults, punishments, or degradation. He would have Cici now and not have to worry about the abuse his parents put her though.

    Lifting his head he uttered, "Thank you." Placing the violin to his chin, Zephan ran his bow across the strings. Now that he was playing instead of practicing it sounded like the instrument was being played by someone who had played for twenty years. Closing his eyes the boy began to play the Romance movement from Mozart's "A Little Night Music" from memory. It was a slower peice and Zephan just thought it appropriate.
