The past after all always had one or another way to catch up in the end after all. The current life never lasting without getting reminded of past sins. It always catch up to you in the end and Vanitas couldn't possible be immune towards this despite his reputation. It would have been absurbed if so had been the case.
During that night Vanitas had found himself in a much unfortunate situation after having attacked a random human he had hunted down in the forest in hope for a much undisturbed meal. However as it turned out to be right after having finished feeding on the human with full intention to let them live like he pretended to be doing so for 'redemption' or whatever, his peaceful hunt would drastic change to become a much more bizarre and inconvenience night for the pureblood as a old face decided to make thier apperance in front of them.
Vanitas would bite back down on his lip as he got thrown across the ground until his back got slammed right into a tree. Blood dript down from the vampire's bruised lip, but that was not the only thing that had got bruised and scratched during this fight. Vanitas had been fighting against this annoying little pest to the best of his ability but without his powers felt like he had picked the short straw in this one, or well making fighting alot more bothersome then it necessery needed to be otherwise. Vanitas would lift his head up to glance over at his attacker with a smug face, lips curled up to what come across as sly and mocking but inside he only felt bitterness wishing for nothing more then for this to be over with so he could return back home before the sun rised again to pay Regis a visit. They had promised to drink tea together after all something he had looked forward to until this little annoying pest had decided to get inbetween his plans.
" Are your memory still running short, Liam?. " The witch would ask with much distaste upon her tounge as she keept Vanitas up there all pinned against the tree with some vines that had wrapped itself around his body to keep him there. " Apperantly yes, or perhaps i see no reason to remember worthless vermins such like yourself dearest. So my pardon for not wasting my memory on your unattractive face." Vanitas would reply with a smug smile but was truthful for once. He couldn't really remember to ever having meet this witch before but at the same time he had run into many witches in the past and not many was special fond of him. His answer displeased the witch greatly to the point of tightening the grip around his body with the vines which made him groan a bit underneath this much displeased grip but he keept on sticking with that much mocking smile though because aha, it was far to amusing to resist to?.
" You might not remember Liam but i do. I will never forget what you did, and what you took from me. I have searched and chased you down for this very moment to make you pay for it. " The witch would snarl as she come closer to the vampire only to stare him right in one of his mismatched eyes; the blue one. Vanitas would solely watch her and rosed a eyebrow when she reached up to touch his face but only briefly so before she pulled away again to take a step back. " You think you can manipulate anyone whoever you like. Deceiving people with your face and charm without caring for the lives you ruin and shatteres once you break thier hopes and dreams. But it's time for that to change. I will make sure that everyone finally gets to see the monster you truly are." The witch would finish with a grim smirk which hold no effect on the vampire aside from rolling his eyes at her. Vanitas had been working on a way to get himself free from this vines not exactly needing his lost powers for that, after all he was a vampire and those abilities had not gone and abandoned him something the pureblood was grateful for now in this moment of need. He had manged to lose one of his hands with the katana sword still being hold in his grip and without letting this opportunity be wasted swung the blade up to cut the vines that was holding his waist and other arm, cutting it effectively thanks to the special sword he possessed that was out from the ordinary.
The witch would snarl back at this and was about to take a step back while focusing on to trap him with more vines but that she was unable to finish with before Vanitas had losen himself so much so that he could use his free hand to rip of the left remaining vines that hold him down so he would fall back to the ground and the second his feets landed on the ground he would kick off to run straight towards the witch with speed as he used the katana to slash her right across the chest. A loud cry would come from the women before she used her magic to disappear away from his view. Vanitas stood tall once more as he started to glance around after the witch knowing she used wind magic this time to disappear along with the wind. That meant she was a witch who could control the elements then?. " Come on now, witch don't be a such clingy pest. i don't have time for this. Just show your face already so i can finish you of. I'm already late..." Vanitas would complain not founding this situation amusing at all. As he stood there waiting would listen closely to every movement until the witch finally went to attack. He catch the sound of her movement which come to his left side. Graping a tighter hold of the sword Vanitas would swing it around again this time cutting through the women's arm but her attack contunie on forward as the witch grapt after Vanitas throat. His eyes widen as he felt himself fall backwards, hitting the back of his head as he fall roughly towards the ground. With a groan leaving his mouth had momently closed his eyes before opening them again and of course with the witch all over him.
" Oh my... you cannot simple take a no, can ya?. I think you take the prize of being one of the most clingiest people i have ever meet...you even beat some of my exes." Vanitas would point out mostly to mock but also because he had a theory and...the way the witch reacted made him start to think he might be correct with his suspection. Not like he had much time to think about that though. " Oh, just shut it!." The witch would mutter, frowning at him. " What a foul mouth you have there lady, perhaps you should wash that mouth of yours?. " he would hum, giving her an amused smirk. That seemed to have hit the final straw for the feminine witch as she grapt a tighter hold of his throat to start to choke him. Vanitas would just smirk before he quickly grapt the wrist of the hand which was choking him before he would spin the witch around so she laid on the ground now all pinned underneath him and brought his katana up to push the sharp blade against her throat. " Sorry witch but as much fun this has been i really need to get on going, someone is waiting for me i'm sure you will understand. I guess this means game over, huh?, for you anyway." Vanitas would finish with a devil looking smirk before he made himself ready to cut of this witch head because that should do it to finish her of for eternity. But as he was about to land the final blow he suddenly felt pain strike down at one of his legs. Side glancing down he saw the witch had cut him with a dagger but that was not all...
Suddenly he didn't felt special well. His vision started to blurry and the strenght leaving his body.." Bloody....he- " He didn't finish that sentence before he collapsed right on top of the witch as he passed out.
Next time he woke up was still on the same spot like before but not everything was the same. It took sometime for the dizziness to leave his mind and for his vision to get more clear again but as he slowly woke up from whatever poison that witch had used on him started to pay attention to his surrendings. First he saw the witch a bit away mumbling some words he not really understood. Secondly he noticed he was being put in some sort of a circle which was painted out in some red liquer...ahhh, it was blood?. Vanitas slowly sat up while placing a hand over his forehead still feeling rather weak. What on the seven sins was she planning to do with him?. Thinking this through seemed like a such bothersome mess for him right now. I swear to Lucifer that i'm going to kill you. He thought as he slowly tried to get back up on his unsteady legs but the moment he got up felt a sudden pain strike down inside of his body. It made his eyes widen up as he choked on the pain before he fall back down on his knees again. What the hell?!. Grimacing felt how his stomach knot itself up. It was a sickening feeling that got send through his whole body. But just as he thought the pain had faded again felt an other wave of pain swimming over him only this time much more intense. It made him hold back a snarl as he leaned forward a bit while wrapping his arms around himself as he felt like every single bone inside of his body got cracked open and twisted around in there. It was an quite unpleasant and unberable pain and the vampire started to shake before a painful groan left his mouth. Unwrapping the arms around himself would place both hands down on the ground in front of him as he contunie to grimace in pain while doing his best to keep himself back from screaming in agony. " W-What are...you...d-doing towards me...w-witch!!." he manged out through gritted teeths and glared up at her and saw now a barrier was put up between her and him which surrended the whole circle. Wait...was this some sort of ritual she was doing?. The witch smirked at him as she contunie on to speak a language he just couldn't understand. Oh Lucifer in hell...
An other wave of pain got send through his body as this unpleasant feeling like his bones got crushed inside of him send the vampire over the edge as he let out a cry in agony while digging his nails into the dirt. Vanitas did not notice it himself as his body started to change, his body growing and ripping apart some of his clothes in the process during this....transformation. He suddenly felt an intense pain at the side of his head as something grow out from there and literally thought he was being crushed into pieces when something grow out from his back to break itself free while blood splattered out on the ground. During this whole time Vanitas did his best to hold back his agony pain inside but now and then suffocated pains did leave his mouth. Once the transformation was over Vanitas was left panting and breathing heavily through the pain before he collapsed on the ground, his whole body skaking through the pain. His eyes started to close as he looked after the witch who soon disappeared and the last thing he saw before passing out was the barrier that got removed.
Who knows for how long he was out but it was not beaming light of the sun that started to shine down on the vampire's face that Vanitas finally opend his eyes again. He would groan lowly to himself as he felt how sore his whole body was, the previous night being all but a blur to him. With a shaky breath he after quite sometime after just laying there on the ground to rest and to collect his thoughts a bit would force himself up slowly until he stood back up but the moment he took a step would fall forward but luckily catch himself by falling into a tree. Ouch. That hurt like hell. Gritting his teeths the vampire would stumble himself forward while leaning on every single tree he passed on by for support before pushing himself forward again only having one thing on mind right now and that was to found Regis.
