Bloody Tears - Part: 08As I spoke my name, I found myself waking to the sounds of a woman screaming. My eyes open, I witnessed a succubus falling as she vanished from existence. Standing next to me was Julius, his body heavily wounded, “What happened?” I asked, hoping to be cleared on the details I was missing. However, Julius just pointed his finger behind me, and as I turned around I witnessed the sun starting to rise from right outside the castle’s gate. ‘How did I get here? Were we not deep within the corridors a moment ago?’ My mind was boggled at the thought of how we got here, however there was no time for wasting. When the sun was fully risen, the castle would vanish until nightfall came yet again.
Quickly reacting to the situation at hand, Alucard moved up to Julius’ side, and began to help him get to the gate’s exit, “Artur! We have to go! Clear a path for us, and we might all be able to get out of here!” Alucard’s eyes had also begun chan
Bloody Tears - Part: 07“So, you are the fool who has found one of my treasures.” A powerful voice echoed through the darkness, its tone both dark and elegant, like that of a noble lord, “What is your name child?” The voice demanded.
Not knowing what else to do, I attempted to speak. However I could not manage to pull forth a single word from my mouth. ‘Why can’t I speak? Am I dead? Is that why it‘s so dark?’ My soul trembled as I attempted to figure out what was going on.

Once again, the unknown voice commanded me to speak. This time its tone was much lighter, almost like that of a parent who was trying to make their child feel better and confess to a mistake they had made. So, I gathered all of my strength, and finally was able to speak, “Art
Bloody Tears - Part: 06Following Julius’ orders, I continued to run through the corridor, fighting only that which blocked my path. It wasn’t as easy having to use the hatchet instead of my sword, but at least I had some way to battle the beasts.
“Don’t slow down! We still have a ways to go, before we get out of here!” Julius’ voice echoed, as he gave his order. It sounded almost as if he was expecting to take us out of a different area than the main gate, with how he spoke.
This made me feel a sense of unease, as I thought about the reasons why we might not be exiting through the entrance. Could it be that the main gate had been overrun by demons? Or is it possible that the castle has changed its form while I was in the caverns below? Regardless, there was no time to dwell on these thoughts for long. The path in front of us was filled with monsters and demons, and the only way to survive was to focus on the problem at hand.
Up ahead I spotted Julius and the soldiers fight
