... I marveled at the heavy object that sealed the room. My claws rose to touch the surface, feeling the smooth grain as I slid my hand downward, caressing the work done to the wood. My mind became filled with regret as my arm tore through the door, breaking it into splinters as I entered the den of a vile beast. Even more extravagant linens and silks adorned the walls of this latest chamber. Bright reds and blues danced into my eyes as I gazed around the room, scanning for my potential prey. Among the various bodies within the room was a very angry German lord, his enraged obscenities becoming muffled by the swooning and screams of the wonderfully naked maidens that filled his chamber. My pupils must have swelled into the glowing violet gems that expose my bestial nature, for the angry lord immediately dropped to his knees once he gazed upon them. "Dear God, who art in heaven ... please protect me from this demon," said the Lord, his hands making the cross as I lurched toward him, my hands grabbing his collar and hoisting him up into the air like a ragdoll. "No amount of prayers can save you now, my lord ..." I said as I brought him closer to my lips.
