Virginie’s eyes became wide as she saw the man.
Matthew was by his side, checking if he was alright.
“H..Is he alright ? Asked Virginie with a shy and worried voice.
-He is but his body is very weak… Answered Matthew before looking to Virginie. We need to help him quickly…. Can you help me to transport him ?
-Sure… Blushed slightly Virginie.“
The two companions were now escorting an unconscious vocalist throught the forest.
“Attila… Whispered Matthew, seeing his friend was still unable to wake up.
-…Matthew ? What happened to him…? Asked Virginie, very concerned since Attila was one of her favorite people ever.
-…Long story… But for now, it isn’t our priority.“
Virginie nodded but she also was quite disappointed to notice how much Matthew wasn’t very talkative about those events. Inside the girl’s brain was a total mess…
She loved Powerwolf since a while so of course she wanted to meet them…but not in those circonstances.
Her thoughts were soon stopped by the guitarist’s call.
“Miss ? We are arrived. Said Matthew as the trio was in front of a door.
-Where are we…?
-In front of our ludge, behind the live’s scene. We always enter here to not shuffle with the audience.“
Virginie gasped, she was excited but also very worried. It was a strange mix of feelings.
Matthew opened the door, a large corridor was behind. There was an insane amount of doors, each one wearing the name of a specific band. Virginie was very curious about this place but Matthew was accelerating the pace.
The trio arrived in front of the Powerwolf’s door. Virginie could heard some voices inside and she couldn’t help but felt intimidated as hell.
Matthew opened the door, revealing the rest of the band. His “brother” Charles was napping against his drawer while Falk and Roel were playing card games, chatting about how the live was awesome.
Virginie blushed hard as Matthew helped his unconscious friend to lie down on one of the few sofas that were in the large room.
Virginie, lost in her fantasy, was naively looking around, and her eyes met Roel’s ones. She immediately turned back, red as a tomato, as the drummer was confused.
“Who is this little miss ? Asked the drummer with a loud yet soft voice.
-She is the one who helped me saving Attila… Replied Matthew, holding the vocalist’s cold hand.“
Charles awakened and ran towards his brother. Falk stood up and did the same, soon followed by Roel. In a few seconds, everyone was near Attila.
“Oh my !! What happened to him ?! Panicked Falk.
-He did the thing…again. Sadly answered Matthew
-No..! We told him to not dare things again ! Added Roel.
-He isn’t responsible…but it was a dangerous decision…considering the moon was red tonight… Said Matthew.
-Really ?! Yelled Charles. Did anyone was hurt ?!
-No…Not this time. He managed to resist.“
Virginie recoiled from their conversation, feeling disconnected as she was barely understanding anything.
She admired the place in silence, wanting to be as quiet as possible.
“I have nothing to do here… Whispered the girl to herself before starting to lead towards the door.”
She was feeling useless, and totally powerless. It wasn’t a pleasant feeling though, she wanted to help Attila and her favorite band but…she couldn’t.
“Hey, miss ! Don’t go ! Called Matthew.”
Virginie felt a feeling of hope going throught her body. She turned back, facing the band who was looking at her.
“Stay. Please. Said Matthew.
-I want Attila to see you when he’ll awake. He will surely remember the events of tonight….
-… ( True…He was about to kill me…)
-He would be relieved to see you’re safe. So wait with us, please…“
Virginie nodded. Of course, she was going to stay ! She actually wanted to stay !
She approached the group and stay still during a few minutes before Falk offered her a chair.
“Hey, don’t be a statue like this. Come here. Smiled the keyboardist.
-Yes, sir… Whispered Virginie before sitting down.“
She looked around, being with the band was truly something. They were still holding their clothes and makeup, and Virginie was feeling very intimidated.
Charles put a hand on her shoulder. Virginie quickly became as frozen than ice, blushing hard.
“Hey, relax.. We don’t bite.
-…Heh… Blushed harder Virginie, shaking slightly.
-What is your name, little miss ? Asked Roel.
-Come on, did you lose your tongue ? Softly laughed Matthew.
Virginie wanted to answer, but she didn’t manage to. The band was very friendly despite being scary at first sight but she had a hard time to relax. She looked at Attila, he was now sleeping, slowly breathing.
“…Attila… Whispered the teen.
-You like him a lot huh ? Asked Matthew.
-Haha, I saw your reaction in the forest. Laughed Matthew.
-…Heh…I just…I just hope he is alright and…
-He is…but he is very tired after his transformation.
-….What…What happened, Matthew ? Ca…Can you tell me now ? Asked Virginie, worried.
To this moment, all the group looked to each other, worried. Virginie noticed that quickly and panicked slightly, looking down.
“(I think I should shut my damn mouth…) …It’s fine if you don’t want to say…I…
-We are werewolves. Said Matthew, interrupting her suddenly.
-We are werewolves. Repeated Charles. Half human, half devilish wolf.“
Virginie gasped hard and stood up, recoiling. She was shaking, looking at the band with horror.
“Wait a sec !! Werewolves ?! Is it a joke ?!
-C…Come on ! I know your band is called Powerwolf ! I know you called yourselves to be werewolves but this is for the show, right ? You aren’t actually real werewolves, right ? Panicked Virginie.
-You saw Attila as a werewolf. Added Matthew.
-Listen…We are werewolves…You saw it…You can’t deny it… Sadly said Matthew.
-…No…No way… Whispered Virginie, terrified.“
This was too much. Virginie recoiled violently when Matthew and the others stood up. Because of their makeup, they were seeming like wearing a death glare to the girl and she suddenly ran towards the door to escape the room. Unfortunately, Roel blocked the door at a surhuman speed.
Virginie panicked as Falk grabbed her by the arms to immobilise her totally…
