Anion huddled in the back corner of the train cage he "lived" in, his pale, nude form shivering from the cold whether.The only protection he had against the harsh element was the filthy hay that covered the cage floor and the option of shifting to his beast.Of course, he would never give into the latter, he was much too prideful to surrender to the circus hands now when he'd resisted shifting for so many long years.Just thinking about how long it had been since he'd last released his beast made his body ache all over and his heart beat with a strong need to shift.He could hear the roar of the beast in his ears, taste the rage it held, and feel the strength it possessed.Just a bit longer, only a little while longer and Anion would would let his beast run wild to slaughter the fools who caged him like a mere animal.He knew that releasing his beast after having kept it away for so long left him at risk for loosing his sanity, but frankly he didn't give a rat's arse about any of it.Right now, his instincts pounded into his mind and screamed for him to break the metal chains around his neck and smash through the weak steel bars before him.With a quiet groan, Anion burriedd his face in a pile of hay, paying need heed to the rotton smell of it as he heard the sounds of people approaching the cage.He picked up his head slowly and peered over the the creatures staring through the bars at him, all laughing and most drunk beyond better comprehension.His ruby eyes sparked with an idea as he got to his hands and knees, playing the part of a scared animal.As one pig-faced warlock in particular found this amusing, the man stuck his hand between the bars of the cage and rubbed his fingers together, making whistling and clicking noises to try and lure the beast-blooded creature over.Finding it had no effect, he then pulled a candy bar from a satchel at his side and opened it before holding it out and continuing his clicking noises.
Anion now saw an oppertunity as he continued his little charade and slowly inched closer to the male's hand, his eyes on that piggy face the entire time.As he came just within reach, the chain haulted him, keeping him from nearing any closer to the bars of the cage.As if on que, the man slid his hand inside the cage more, putting it in Anion's reach now.Eyes still on the male, the beast-blood slowly leaned down and took hold of the man's flesh between his teeth, managing to rip off a large piece as he pulled back and quickly let loose his beast.The chain tore easily, though still hung about the creature's throat as he rammed his way through the bars and gave a monsterous howl.Quickly, Anion began to speed through the amusement park in search of the carnival hands, though found that they were quick to meet him with whips and tranquilizers in hand.The beast let out a ferocious roar and attacked without hesitation.He easily took down two of the team and gave another roar that sent the rest running, making this into more of a game for him.Anion took off after the herd, hunting them as if they wer game for his feral chase.He opted to keep his speed just below theirs and outlast them in their run.One by one the beast took them out, ripping them apart before once more giving chase to the rest.As the remaining two decided to grow some backbone and face the monster, one shot Anion with the tranquilizer in the shoulder, though to their unfortunate discovery it would take more than one to bring down the beast.
Once they were finished off, Anion then searched for the root of the whole problem, the ring master of this carnival.Holding his bloody snout to the air, the beast sniffed for the man's vulgar scent while crowds run from him in a large din, all hoping that he wouldn't find them as his next target.As the strong smell of whiskey wafted to his wet nose, Anion knew he'd found it and wasted no time in thundering after the male.His claws pounded against the soft dirt as he sped himself to run faster after the scent of the escaping male.It didn't take long for Anion to catchsight of the male attempting to outrun the beast on a motorcycle, though it was considorably easy for the beast to catch up.Once he'd found himself side by side with the motorcycle, the beast took hold of the man in his jaws and pulled him from the machine before shaking him violently and throwing him to the ground.Still, Anion didn't stop as he tore the man apart until nothing was left except the blood staining the earth.With a loud howl, the beast now became crazed and chased the innocent civilians about the rural cluster of tents and attractions.He hunted and slaughtered any he managed to sink his claws into without any fore or after thoughts.Anion was no longer in control, he was an animal on the hunt to sate his bloodlust and quench his need for freedom.Without intervention, the male would never come back from this state and would continue to kill and destroy everything around him, like a bloody beast.
There was a time men were kind,
When their voices were soft,
And their words inviting,
There was a time when love was blind,
And the world was a song,
And the song was exciting...
