So much Light
A moment down…
Left on knees
It will be alright…
All will be as it will be
But at this moment…
No one can Rescue me
Slammed on ground
Shaken, you Run…
Two more appear
Doorway in view…
But you can not
You give in…
It twists, pulls, has its’ way
Grey’s so near
When you are down…
Who brings you back up
Fills your heart anew…
Never gives up
Burdened by something Old…
Blind to what is New
Are you simply giving up…
Or lost in your Misery
My Latest “White Jade” Web Series Pre-Production Update!
“White Jade” Pre-Production Update #8
Sorry for the Udate Delay, as our last Update was on May 3rd
However on May 6th we did have a Pre-Production Meeting (Sebastian, Kait & I attended), for which the Itinerary was sent to each of the “White Jade” Actors & Crew
The Primary Focus between May 6th-19th has been ‘Character Developement’ (I requested that each of the Actors take the week of May 9th-15th to write me about their Character, who they think they are, and perhaps a bit of their history)
Tristen (Police Chief) works full time, as well as attending school full time, and so has delayed this task until he is out of school in June
Carlos (Ti Li) has put some thought into it, and will be getting me the write up
Kaitlin (Nayoko) went over a first draft with me, but will be completing a more…

ALLURE BOOK II
“Seers Of The Night”
CHAPTER VII – In Walks Aram
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK
THE PANAMA CLUB
NOLAN PROSK’S CLUB
Vincent stands near Nolan Prosk’s desk who sits behind it, lighting a cigarette.
La Fon begins to speak.
“I’m not here to stop you Prosk… But it’s important that the Vampire Clans know, that I do not agree with what’s about to happen in the streets.”
Nolan smiles a bit, then looks at Vincent who has not completely integrated the fact that La Fon is standing there… Memories of the two of them hunting for blood in the old country flashing through his head.
“And what am I supposed to do… Shoot them out a memo?” Prosk says sneeredly.
La Fon does not flinch… He doesn’t move a muscle.
With this, Prosk remembers himself, and stands,”Forgive me La Fon… Perhaps I’ve spent too much time around the humans… What would you have me do?”
La Fon steps closer, leaning his fists against the top of Prosk’s desk.
“Send them a memo (With this, Vincent smiles to himself)… Tell them that La Fon has come to you, that he does not believe he is truly meant to lead the clans into a battle against the humans… That it is you that feels this Myth of Cave Drawings be true… That it is you that intends to follow the prophecy at your own accord. I want nothing to do with it… Will you do this for me Prosk.”
Prosk ponders the request for a moment… “Very well…” and extends his hand to La Fon, who turns and begins to walk away… But then stops, and looks at Vincent.
Vincent stares at La Fon, his eyes beginning to glow, “The girl…” he semi growls.
THE CLUB INSIDE ENTRANCE
Aram and Roy, both dressed completely in black, Roy’s hair now dyed black as well, enter the club side by side.
Aram immediately takes note of all the Vampire bodyguards staggered along the left and right wall…
Roy takes note of where she is looking.
She then begins to enter the club’s dance floor, and indicates with a wave of her hand for Roy to guard the front door…
Roy whose come into the club with two sawed off shot guns on his back.
Where Aram bares her large auto crossbow, and two silver samurai swords at her side.
Suddenly La Fon enters the main part of the club, his eyes glowing red, he can’t help but smile menacingly in Aram’s direction.
Aram stops and stares at him.
Roy, in shock, speaks in inadvertently, “Good lord… It’s La Fon.”
In a moment La Fon appears standing directly in front of Aram.
“Hello Aram,” with this he reaches for her hand to kiss it, but she already has a sword at his throat.
People on the dance floor spread apart, but do not try to leave out of fascination… “Is this real?” they think.
Just then Prosk appears through backroom doorway, Vincent at his side, and simply watches… Not really caring either way.
Philip appears at Prosk’s side, “Should we kill them?”
Prosk simply shakes his head indicating no.
“Come now…” La Fon speaks as he suddenly appears behind her, “…it’s been a long time.”
She loses her breath, but not because she is scared… She is not scared.
The music changes, and he starts to dance with her… But first he puts her sword back in its’ sheath.
She is captivated by this… The power he seems to have over her is immeasurable… But not the typical Vampiric power he might have over others… No… This power reaches into her heart.
Roy looks very uneasy by all of this…
Suddenly three large bearded men step into the club behind Roy, his body stiffens immediately…
They stand off to the side of him, their hair an unusual mix of silver and blond… They look different, and yet similar.
The leader of the three watches La Fon and the girl with a sneer… Then suddenly looks slowly over at Roy who is staring directly at him…
The leader’s eyes appear to be silver but go purple for a moment.
“Lycanthropes (Werewolves)…” speaks Roy without thinking.
Meanwhile the dancing continues, and Aram is lost in it…
Prosk seeing the Lycanthropes enter nods at the leader, and the three of them head towards the back of the club… Vincent, Prosk, Philip and the three Lycanthropes disappear into the backroom.
Suddenly Aram awakes from her trance, and takes several steps back towards the entrance… Roy steps forward and grabs her shoulder, “Are you alright?” he asks…
“Yeah… I’m ok…” they look back to the dance floor and La Fon is gone.
Suddenly Philip appears from the backroom and motions for the Vampiric Bodyguards to seize Roy and Aram…
“Lets get out of here…” Aram speaks, and the two of them step out of the club.
Outside is waiting a black sports car, its’ passenger door open, and La Fon is in the drivers seat.
He waves for Roy and Aram to get in…
For some reason Aram feels it’s ok, and the two of them get in, Aram sitting on Roy’s lap, as it is a two seater vehicle…
Just as the Vampire Bodyguards exit the club to find Roy and Aram, La Fon takes off…
LA FON’S CAR
There is an eerie, awkward silence within the car, as La Fon, an Ancient Vampire, Aram, a Vampire Slayer, and Roy a Werewolf Hunter don’t seem to have all that much to speak about…
Or do they…
“There were Werewolves in that club,” Roy suddenly says.
“Yes… The Blueboun Pack… Scout is their leader,” La Fon replies.
“Werewolves? Here?? In New York?” Aram seems totally surprised, beyond the fact that they’re talking about Werewolves.
“Werewolves generally steer clear of cities… But yes,” replies La Fon once more.
“Lucky they didn’t know who you were,” La Fon speaks to Roy.
“True that…” Roy replies.
“I’d completely forgotten that you hunt Lycanthropes…” speaks Aram.
“Yes… Well… Your Uncle has kept me quite busy trying to hunt down… Er,” Roy pauses as he looks over at La Fon.
“Me? I’m complimented… Too bad you’ve spent the last two years of your life in New York for that, as tonight is the first time I’ve ever been here.”
Roy looks put out…
“What’s happening La Fon? Why are there Lycanthropes meeting with Vampires?” Aram interjects.
“Ah, now that’s the question now isn’t it… But I feel we should wait for me to answer, until we’re in the company of your Uncle… No point in repeating myself,” he says with a smile, as the car tears down the road.
When no ones around
What happens to the billowy clouds…
Light seems to darken
And sadness comes round
Is it Chemical…
What’s really going down…
Things seem ok
Inspiration… Motivation slips away
Down is allowed this much I know…
What is the point of this toe to toe
We can not be in good company all the day…
Nor eat, or induce good feelings in some other way
We are alone, and that should be ok…
But instead the aching begins
Holding melancholy at bay
Perhaps I’ve spent too much time alone…
Facing abyss and voids eye to eye
I thought I was doing better than this…
But when I’m alone, I’m starting to miss
How do I do this…
I think I’ve figured it out
Everyone left me…
I learned to live without
Could it really be this simple
I’ve got everything to live for…
But Nothing left to gain
I just want to feel important…
Important enough to stay
I’ve Relied on no one…
Cried lonely in the dark
Hid under tables…
Well my life fell apart
She comforted me with Love…
Fleeting as it was
The Stars from above…
Are not the ones to blame
I’m so damn Lonely…
The kind that makes you Cry
But no one else told me…
The Answer lay inside
Things have been different now
The weight of a thousand chains…
My Heart dragged under…
This Perfect Dark enclave
The Light comes up…
The Skies Clear…
The birds… They sing
The truth is…
I am not alone
Some they stay forever…
Some I’ve always known
This Darkness that has surrounded me…
There Is Hope…
In my resolve
That nothing ever changes…
I am not alone…
In this Dark… Dark… rain
