" The queen finally reveals herself. " Snippet from Legacy Forgotten by Nicole Hill

Kenneth drew his sword as he fully changed. He could feel his skin pull tight over his head and his fangs lengthen to the longest point. He felt the power that was the essence of the Vampire surge through him. He was no spring chicken anymore but where the human species got feebler with age the vampire got more strong, more fierce and more agile. There were so many of them. He looked around and saw William staggering back from a blow to his side. Kenneth was there in a flash. He swung his sword over his head and watched it meet with the vampire's neck. It was a clean cut and the vampire was ash before he hit the ground. Kenneth nodded his head to William as he moved on. 
The fight seemed to last forever and more kept coming. Kenneth could have sworn that there was only twenty to start with. He had taken out at least ten on his own and there were still more. They were tiring fast. He knew that they should have brought more people. He turned when he saw a flash to his right a bit to late to deflect the blow to his leg. It hurt like hell and the vampire paid dearly for that pain. The cut was very deep. A little more and that bastard would have cut his whole leg off!
He was tired now from the physical exertion and he was quickly bleeding out. He needed to get the wound wrapped until he could feed enough to close it. He wasn't sure how much longer he could last. From the corner of his eye he caught a glimpse of the witches filling out into a line. Get back! He screamed. Just then he felt the entire ground shaking. All fighting stopped as everyone turned to look at the women. Their hair seemed to blow back on an invisible breeze. Their eyes seemed to glow as they held hands. Kenneth felt the last of his strength going and he nearly fell to the ground. He had the feeling that they were using their powers to combine with his and the others of the force. Kenneth knew that something bad was fixing to happen.
 “Get out of here!” He mentally sent to the others. As soon as they flashed out of the parameter there was a huge beam of light that covered the entirety of the camp. Kenneth could smell burning vampire and knew that anyone who stayed behind was gone. As soon as he felt that it was safe, he and the others flashed back. The women were still standing side by side with their hands linked. Kenneth stepped forward. “Stop!” The one in the center said with her hand held out. Kenneth stopped short. “Identify yourself.” She said.
 “We mean you no harm.” Kenneth started.
 “We don't believe you.” She stated sounding bored. 
We have come to help you.” He said. “We want to take you to a safe place. We have other like you that we have rescued and now protect.”
 “We will not go with you.” She said with finality. 
We mean only to protect you.Kenneth stated. The air grew still again and the women started to lift off the ground. Kenneth could feel his energy ebbing away at a rapid force. He looked at the others and could tell by their expressions that theirs was going as well. “Try to leavehe sent out and he could also tell that they were unable. This was going to hurt. Kenneth thought to himself. 
Just as he was bracing himself for impact, he felt strange warmth on his face. He opened his eyes and was amazed to see Ailis. Well an apparition of her at least. He didn't even know that she could do that. She was surrounded by light and all but floating! The women immediately fell to one knee and bowed their heads while Kenneth stood there, his mouth agape trying to think past the brightness of the light radiating from her. .
