Peggy found a couple goats and sheep in steerage and took one of the sheep, pulling it along with her, back to the storage room that she'd turned Elizabeth in. She pushed the door open and then led the sheep to Elizabeth, "Here."
Elizabeth looked at the animals and tears welled in her eyes before she grabbed the sheep and ripped into its throat. Even though some of the hunger subsided, it wasn't nearly enough and she hated herself all the more as she stared at the dead animal when she had finished.
"I hate you," she said softly, drawing her knees to her chest.

Mikhal shoved her, baring his fangs. "You've got his stench all over you. You're just another one of his brainwashed whores, aren't you?" he snarled.

Thomas growled and hurried out after them, "Don't touch her," he barked angrily.

Maggie gaped at him, obviously offended. “I am not brainwashed!” She snarled back. “I’m not about to let you hurt him.”

"Don't talk to her like that!" Charles snapped, following Thomas over. Sure, this guy could kill him in a second, but nobody could treat Maggie that way. "Maggie, just go find him and go," he said to her in a softer voice.

[❤️❤️ Big brother vibes just hitting me in the feels]

Maggie squeezes Charles’ arm. She appreciated his support, but leaving felt dangerous. What if Mikhal decided to take his anger out on her brothers? “Don’t let him hurt you.”

"it's alright Mags, we'll be fine. Just go," Thomas insisted; he'd feel better if Charles went with her, but doubted his stubborn brother would listen.

Maggie nodded and rugged on Charles’ arm again, worried for his safety. She dropped it though, knowing it was a lost cause. “Be safe,” she reminded them, hurrying off to get Nico.

Charles gave her what he hoped was a reassuring smile and nodded in agreement with Thomas, then watched her go. He turned back to Mikhal, the smile disappearing completely. "I believe your story, I really do, but I can't have you going after the man my sister cares for so much."

Peggy nodded and sat down on the ground near to Elizabeth, sighing loudly, “I hate this too. I just—I didn’t want you to die. I know this is a curse and I don’t know why I changed you,” Peggy wiped a hand over her face, “When I was a young girl—a man turned me because I wouldn’t be his wife. He hadn’t played to make me a vampire, he planned something much worse.” Peggy paused. She looked at Elizabeth, “I killed my own brother that night. The only human I’ve ever killed until I nearly killed you tonight”

"You did kill me, though. I'm not...I'm not human now. I have no heartbeat, I'm not alive." Elizabeth pressed her face into her knees and let out a shuddering sob.

"If you really cared about her, you'd step out of my way," Mikhal growled, fangs still bared. "One way or another, I'm putting an end to him. So are you going to help me, or are you going to make the mistake of making me your enemy?" He challenged. "Choose carefully, Charlie. I'll let you and your family live if you don't interfere."

Thomas glanced at Charles nervously, wishing he would have just gone with Maggie. “I am terribly sorry mikhal, but I can’t allow that,” he said as he looked back at nicos brother. “From what ive seen of nico, I know he would never harm my sister,” Thomas said confidently. “And he’s believe it or not, he has saved this family on more than one occasion. It’s time I repay the favor,” he said

Maggie burst into the hotel room panting and frantic. “Nico! Nico!” She called wildly.

"He's just about apart of the family anyway," Charles added, glaring at Mikhal. "So, I'm sorry. You need to step away from this."
