More guards appear by Anders and hold him still.

Permalink

Nicodemus watches the blade slice though the Doctors skin and waits... it doesn't heal.

He turns to the Council with a pleased expression. "It works. His magic hasn't healed the wound. My theory was correct. The mate bond is affecting his magic and she is able to bypass his healing."

Permalink

"So it appears." They all wait in silence for a time, still the cut doesn't heal. "I suppose we must now carry out the sentence. Nicodemus, please carry on."

Permalink

"As the people decree." He turns back to Lora. "Use the knife and cut off your mates head."

Permalink

He hears the decreed, he sees Lora's mouth gape in horror. 

He sees her arm raise. 

He reaches forward, just getting away from his guards, and kisses Lora one last time. 

He feels the bite of the knife in his neck.

Permalink

"NOOOOO!" 

Lorie's fists clench, and her power blooms full force. Around her, vampires fall, clutching stumps where arms exploded apart, claw at wounds in faces and stomachs, while hybrids try to stem the flow of blood pouring from deep scratches. 

Permalink

Stop me, stop me, she begs her daughter. 

But then Anders' head topples to the ground and shatters.

Permalink

Klara rushes forward and grabs Lorie, immediately draining her of all her magic.

Permalink

Kol follows right behind his sister and knocks Lorie unconscious.

Permalink

Nicodemus staggers, bleeding heavily from his chest, but rights himself quickly. He hands Lora a bottle and lighter, "Now use these and burn him," he grits out.

Permalink

She does.

Permalink

Rosalina stands and speeds over to Lorie, taking her from Klara and picking her up. She glares at the twins. "What did you do?"

Permalink

Kol steps in front of Klara, silencing her before she speaks. "Just handling the situation. You're welcome." He mentions to the room, now filled with bleeding hybrids and some very annoyed and broken vampires. "She's a spitfire, that one."

Permalink

Lora watches the fire that is her husband consume him. Unable to move, still under Nicodemus' control, she can't cast herself into the flames after Anders, or turn and rip apart the man that caused this.

Permalink

Rosalina composes herself and looks down at Lorie, unconscious in her arms. "Oh child, what have you done?"

Permalink

Isa stands and glares at Rosalina. "She just attacked the Council. How could you let this happen, Muñiz? I thought you had her under your influence?!"

Permalink

"Stop talking. Councillor Muñiz, place the girl on the table. And sit back down, both of you." He looks around the room, most of the vampires had now healed, and the wounded hybrids were being attended to by the unaffected Guard. He frowns and then turns to the remaining guards standing by the burning Doctor and his mate. "Kill her. Quickly."

Permalink

And they do just that. A moment later Lora Hawke falls to the ground, headless.

Permalink

Nicodemus watches her fall, unamused. He turns to the seated Council members and then looks down at the hybrid child, now laying unconscious on the table.

"Now isn't this a mess." He looks down at his bloody chest in fascination. "She's powerful."

Permalink

Isa sits down angrily in her chair. "And unhinged. We need to kill her, now."

Permalink

Wildling helps Cullen gather the pieces of their sire's arm.

She can't help the satisfied feeling that he was hurt, even as she wants to scream for the injustice the Hawke family was just shown.

Permalink

"She did commit a crime and endanger the whole Council..."

Permalink

"She's a child, Cade. A child that just witnessed her mother murder her father. We need to show her some compassion."

Permalink

"It is an extenuating circumstance. We knew how this would affect her." He looks to Nicodemus and Isa. "Thoughts?"

Permalink

"We can't let this go unpunished."
