When a video of Slayers in action goes viral. Roanapur will become ground zero for a knock down drag out battle involving thrill jockeys, vengeful gangsters and a certain vampire Reality TV star. Lights, Camera, Mayhem
Two darting figures chased each other though the warm night. One was a Vampire running for its unlife the other was a Vampire Slayer a girl gifted by fate with the ability to hunt and kill creatures like the one being chased. The Girl put on a burst of sudden speed tackling the vampire to the ground. The Girl rolled him over driving her fist into his body and pounding on him relentlessly, gratuitously, almost sadistically her lips curled in a cruel leer.
She grabbed him off the ground and hurled him into a wall with a bone snapping crunch. She followed that attack with brutal punch. Putting all of her mystically enhanced strength behind the blow The vampire felt his ribcage shatter, bone fragments piercing his undead heart. He dissolved with a painful sigh.
Slow and sarcastic clapping preceded a figure that stepped from the darkness. "Nice, very nice you managed to add a whole ninety seconds to your time." Xander Harris gave a caustic sigh , "If the name of the game was beat on the bad guys like they were pinatas you'd be on your way to a gold star."
"I am sorry Master Harris;" The Slayer said while panting and catching her breath, "I got ...carried away."
"I'll say, you even managed to forget his buddy." Xander snapped jerking his thumb in the direction of another vampire bound in handcuffs. His clothes carried the filth of the several blocks Xander had dragged him to catch up with his fleeing Slayer.
"He made a break for it after you chased after his friend. Made a pretty good stab at trying to get past me. Fortunately for me, i was paying attention and he didn't get the drop on me since my Slayer was off getting her kill on."
The Slayer's face drained of colour. If there was one person in the world, in the universe, that the Slayers of Roanapur never wanted to disappoint it was Xander Harris. That, of course, had its uses.
Xander nodded at her reaction. "This job isn't just about killing. Anyone can kill. It's about protection; of yourself, of your allies, and the people who are depending on you, starting with your Watcher."
"I failed you Master Harris." The girl said miserably, Xander thought about cheering her up, but lessons had to be learned.
"The only thing I want out of you girls is that you will live up to your potential and you have great potential. You didn't fail me; you failed yourself. Stop doing that and we'll be fine. Quit letting the scared little slave-girl you used to be determine your future. you're better and stronger then that."
"What about him?" she asked eager to undo what she had done, but Xander shook his head.
"Burn-boy here has, I think, figured out that prowling the docks especially on Hotel Moscow territory is a bad idea, right?" The Vampire nodded "Then you get to carry that message back to your buddies in the other nest near here. You tell them -twenty-four hours. They have twenty four hours to move, after that … I'm bringing more then a single slayer down here for training I'm bringing a squad and some of them are more vicious then she is."
" I guess I shall return to the island." The Slayer sighed dejectedly.
"Yeah your going to need your rest if your going to lead the sweep team tomorrow night."
"You want me to... but I thought I failed you tonight?"
"... And because of that now you'll be more cautious. I've seen how you can take charge and the other girls follow you. If they see you watching out for your teammates. and listening to your partner. It will make them better fighters which makes everybody stronger. I trust you and I know you won't let me down again."
She brightened and hugged him quickly before stepping back to a more respectful stance. Xander shook his head with a smile. "Hugging is OK, I'm OK with the hugging." He massaged his shoulders, "A little less Slayer strength next time OK?"
The two departed leaving the street quiet. Two more figures detached from the creeping shadows. one of them held a digital camera.
"I told you we should stay an extra night," His partner whispered. "Tell me you got all of that."
"Every second, she was amazing? Was that really Alexander Harris, the terrorist? What do you think he's doing in a place like this?"
"Dude, why are we here? Its Roanapur, the villain's paradise. No wonder the cops can't find him."
"So what do you want to do? Should we tell someone."
"Are you kidding me, if the cops could take him down he and the rest of the Watchers would be in jail."
"So what are we going to do with the footage?"
"What do you think we're going to do with it? Upload it to Youtube."
"Dude I have the stuff I shot at the bachelor party on here If Sally saw what we did with those girls at that strip club..."
"So we edit that part out, but Dude, MSNBC and Fox News say this guy is one of the top terrorists in the world, and he's training an army in the most evil city on the planet. You don't think someone's going to want to see that?"
"Wasn't Harmony Kendell talking about him on her TV show, She is so hittable."
His friend snorted, "Her tits ain't that great ... actually she has kind of a butterface. I could get better."
His friend shook the camera, "You sure you want to stick to that story. I have that threesome you did on tape and at least one of those girls ... wasn't a girl."
"Shut up and let's get back to the hotel. We got till noon to make our flight out of this hellhole and I want to get that video uploaded before we leave."
