Don was cussing up a storm when he couldn't find a parking place. He was about ready to just drive the damn vehicle up on a curb and leave it for towing when he spotted one. He sped forward and snagged just as someone was trying to get it. The man in the truck was flipping him off, and Don just laughed merrily as he read the license plate number. He would be having a nasty surprise later!
Don hopped out of the bus to watch the man drive off and park a ways down. Then he turned to the others that were all stretching from the long ride. With a shrug he followed his daughter, Ann, as she skipped off to the Fair.
Tooth was looking around rather worriedly as he walked beside Lyra. Finally she snapped, "What?"
"People are looking at you. Aren't you worried?" he asked rather nervously, but refused to let go of the hand he was holding.
Lyra shrugged, "Nope, if they don't like my costume then they CAN GET OVER IT." She proclaimed it loudly, and then giggled when Tooth looked at her in awe. It was so funny how the big man had turned into her little bitch so quickly!
With her head held high, Lyra led her man into the Fair behind Don, and tried her best to ignore Wings and Toot comment on every girl, and hitting on every other girl they saw. It was funny, but she really did want to meet Sica! And if she continued to listen to them she would get side track from that main goal.
As her attention shifted back to the crowd ahead, Lyra was nearly bowled over by the fact that all she could smell was stinky humans, and deep fried everything under the sun. It made her salivate and want to gag all at the same time in a torturous moment of gut wrenching hunger. In fear she looked to the throng of humans around them wondering which she would attack and kill. Then she realized that she didn't want humans to eat. She didn't want flesh. She blinked in surprise, and looked to the little girl leading them through the extensive fair. Had the mind blowing sex with her cured her that deeply? Lyra didn't think that was possible, but then what was it?
The breeze brushed smells against her, and Lyra realized that what she wanted to eat was behind her. Then the giggles of Toot and Wings reached her ears, and an idea bloomed in her mind. Was it the flesh of the angel she wanted to eat?
A harsh tug on her tail pulled her from those thoughts, and she yelped in pain. Lyra dropped Tooth's hand, and clamped both over her smarting tail while spinning. Standing there with an astonished look on his face was a young man that looked just like flat chested Potter staring at Lyra's tail.
"Holy shit!" the boy said just before Lyra pounced on him and covered his mouth. With a nervous laugh she walked away from the people that were watching her with wide eyes and suspicious looks.
Lyra took the boy to a less crowded corn, and set him down with a glare.
"That's a real tail!" he exclaimed to Lyra.
Lyra rolled her eyes as she kept the boy pinned in the corner. "No, it's just attached really well."
"When the Devil said you were a werewolf woman I had thought you would still be human except when you changed!" The boy said with eyes riveted to her wolf human hybrid body.
Lyra blinked in surprise, "The Devil?"
The boy looked up to Lyra's face, and she swore she could see the lust in those eyes. What the fuck was with this kid?
"Yeah, he sent me to make sure that you don't try to get back to Hell again."
Lyra was speechless as Ann broke out in a fit of laughter behind her. What was there to say that the Devil had sent another to keep her out of Hell and presumably away from him?
"Dude, what the fuck?" Don demanded.
The boy shrugged, but kept his eyes on Lyra. "He wasn't too sure how willing you'd be to do anything to keep her out with the whole quest and how you are getting really buddy-buddy with her. So he sent me to be sure."
"And who the fuck do you fucking think you are?"
"Cerb, call me Cerb."
Potter pushed in beside Lyra, "Why do you look like me?" she asked in wonderment.
The boy finally tore his gaze from Lyra's body, and she shuddered in response. She didn't realize just how much that lust laden gaze was effecting her till it was no longer on her. They might have to be rid of this newbie soon!
"Well that's because I am your evil twin demon that was created when you became a moon vampire. Seven has one too now, but that thing is the most worthless demon ever. I doubt she will ever be allowed out of Hell! It would shame the Devil!" The boy commented to her as his gaze raked over her body then returned to her face with boredom.
"Oh," Potter said in reply, then looked to Don behind her that was looking over her shoulder. "Does that mean you are a twin too?"
"No," He replied gruffly. "I am a fucking demon that used to fucking be a fucking angel. I made my fucking choice, and am a fucking demon in my own fucking right. Ann is too as I fucking helped fucking make her!"
"Ew! Daddy, no one wants to hear that or think about it!" Ann whined, and Don just shrugged in response. He didn't really give a fuck either way.
Lyra sighed, and then turned to Ann, "Have you seen Sica?"
Ann perked up, and looked around before darting off into the crowd. The rest of the group followed after the little demon girl as she threaded expertly through the mass of bodies. In no time at all she had them at the food court area of the fair. Smells of every fried food mingled together here to smell of just fat and grease- everything else was just an undertone to that.
Ann was standing at the head of the group her eyes overlooking everyone in the area. She was eagerly, and nearly desperately scanning for any hint of her mother. Just as it looked as if the girl was going to break down in tears there was a loud crash followed by cursing and laughing. Ann dashed forward toward the spectacle, and soon saw the fat man rolling on the ground like a turtle that was on it's back. Not too far away was a woman with a mad gleam in her eyes as she laughed hysterically at him.
"Momma!" Ann cried as she flung herself at the woman. She caught her up easily and swung her around.
"My, my what are you two doing out of Hell? I thought the Devil thought you too young to be corrupted by God's lying words!" Sica exclaimed as she beamed down at the girl she held in her arms.
Ann giggled, "We got kicked out because Lyra, my bitch, and I tried to steal the Devil's penis! He even just sent a hell dog to make sure that she wouldn't try to get back in!"
Sica looked up to the indicated woman with a dark look on her face, "You orchestrated this?" she asked in a low voice.
Lyra shivered at the pain and death promised in those eyes, but held strong and answered true. "We both did, and we nearly succeeded."
Sica set Ann down, and stalked over to Lyra as if the woman was her lowly prey. Her hand gripped Lyra's shoulder as she looked into her face. Then a smile spread over Sica's face, "Then I must thank you for uniting my family once more." Then she grabbed Lyra up in a bone crushing hug.
Lyra let out a strangled cry as she felt her insides were about to be mush before she was dropped. Sica flipped off Don,and he grinned in response.
The generally happy mood was broken up as someone yelled at them, "Hey Lady, the costume contest is starting soon!"
Lyra shrugged and followed the boy as he darted off to the contest. She was here, and looked the part she might as well win the prize for it. It was only a short ways from where they had found Sica. The people helping ushered her to the back as soon as they spotted Lyra.
There was a flurry of activity all around everywhere she looked. People scurried about as they rushed to get ready for the contest. There were all variations of cows, pigs and other farm animals. Lyra actually looked out of place as a werewolf woman, and she had to wonder if she would win after all. This seemed to be more about the farms and the lives that the people lived to survive here than about the quality of the costume.
There was a moment where she was ready to bolt, and give up on the whole thing. She spotted Cerb watching her with that dark gaze of his, and then she was shoved onto the stage. Lyra stumbled, but quickly caught herself and began to strut around the stage. She felt very aware and self conscious of all the whispers, and pointing fingers that she was getting. For the first time since her return to Earth, she wanted to run and hide. She wanted to not be in the skin she was in. She wanted to be normal or at least as normal as one could get.
Lyra rushed off the stage, and wasn't surprised when she wasn't called back after all the others had pranced across the stage. Ann, Tooth, and Cerb were all far more upset than she was as they made their way back to the bus for the evening.
"You should have won!" Ann protested.
"You were the best there," Tooth offered.
"You were marvelous, those idiots just like to fuck cows." Cerb added.
"How are you not upset?" Ann asked.
Lyra shrugged. "The prize was a year's supply of squeaky cheese; it's not something that I have to have." Lyra stretched before sitting on the bumper of the bus.
"You would win for sure at Comic Con," Liv said absent-mindedly.
A moment of silence followed before Ann was jumping up and down in excitement. "What are we waiting for! Let's go!"
The group exchanged glances, and shrugs before climbing into the bus. It was at least something to do.
Tooth and Charlie stood back a bit as they watched everyone climbing into the bus and trying to get comfortable. "Ya know, Charlie, I will never understand why you got in the cursed bus in the first place, but I can't say that I regret it."
Charlie looked up to Tooth, and a high squeaky voice issued forth. "It was only my thoughts that since you have taken such good care of me that I would do the same. In the upcoming events these people will be your best chance at survival."
Then the giant bunny hopped to the bus, and hopped in. Tooth watched, astonished, as the bus rocked from the sudden weight, and then shrugged. He trusted Charlie, and so he would follow him.
Well folks, I think that's the end of it! I do have a sequel idea in mind, but I think this concludes the Strange Tangled Adventures of Charlie. Let me know what you think!
