The night was bleak outside the small stone building, but she couldn't say she minded. Her normally hazel-blue eyes were a piercing shade of aqua as she scanned the area. It was her home, her castle, her keep. It was an ideal place for them to hide for the moment, but with the world going on around them on how the "blood sucking beasts" were bad, she could only hope to bring her people back to the top. She pushed one of her pale hands through her long strands of sandy blonde hair and she continued to watch. A full moon. A perfect night to go out and hunt, but for now the human captives they had would make due. She had fed before she had exited the safe walls of the stone building that the leaders of the resistance were planning.
"Eris, my dear." an older looking male spoke to her. She allowed her eyes to return to their natural color as she turned to the man and studied him. Vampires had always been the enemy to humans it seemed, but none of them were aware of just how much of an enemy they were to them. "We're awaiting you, darling."
"Of course, Markus." she spoke as they turned and entered the building. It was a small undisclosed location where they had all decided to meet, something that Eris Fredrickson, as she had made herself known as, had set up. She was tired of them always chasing after the humans, she wanted some type of peace, a symbiotic relationship where the humans could live freely knowing that only the rabid ones were the vampires that would pursue them in their blood lust. Eris had been on both sides of the coin, but had grown stable in her abilities to control her hunger. It was a gift acquired with time, something she wished that walking in the sun was. They had speed, heightened senses, immense strength, and charm on their side, but the disadvantages were ones that she wasn't sure she liked. The sun was the biggest downfall. She wasn't born into the ways of a vampire, she was turned.
With a sigh, she watched the other leaders in the rebellion settle in around the table and she took her place at the head and looked to the others around her. She wasn't the youngest there, by far, but she was the youngest looking, a perk to having been turned over being born a vampire. She soon spoke. "Dawn is not for a while, but I figured we needed to make this quick, considering some of you have traveled a great ways for this meeting. I apologize for the location, but it was the only place I knew of that the humans weren't likely to find. They have found six of the covenant safe houses in the last month. They're growing wiser, a bit more aggressive as well."
"Then we need to attack!" one at the other side of the table exclaimed and she sighed a bit.
"That's not why we're here, we had on the agenda defensive measures, not offensive." Eris, calmly, stated, and they looked her way. "I know you aren't all happy with the fact that we wait idly by as they raid and put traps in our coven safe houses, but for now we aren't ready to launch an assault, and perhaps peace can be made." she offered them and a few of the eldest scoffed.
"Humans can not be trusted!" Markus spat. Markus was the eldest there, and Eris sighed.
"Maybe not, but neither can we. We are a far more cunning species. We are superior in all ways, Markus. I wouldn't bring this up if I wasn't entirely certain it was a permanent solution down the line." she said to him, and he growled.
"Eris, I understand that you are a tactician, but this is not wise by any means." he argued and she waved her hand.
"Silence. We are here to discuss defensive strategies, not how we plan to deal with the humans in the long run. We would need to awake the elders for that." Eris pointed out, and with a long sign Markus nodded. "Who would like to start?"
Eris looked around the room when the silence befell and she sighed. "Markus, would you?" she asked and the elder vampire looked to her before nodding. Everyone quieted down and then Eris heard something and stood.
