Family Ties (Lilith)

Post by Dellen Yaxley on Tue Feb 07, 2017 5:28 am

Takes place two weeks prior to the beginning of the new school year.

Dellen knew she shouldnt leave the orphanage, that she could be expelled and find herself without a home after the school year ended but that was a risk she was willing to take. For years now she had been sending out feelers, looking for her mother's cousin, someone her mother had loved dearly and finally the information had come in.

Using fake names she had managed to employ a few wizards through the owl post to watch for the elusive Lilith Morgenstern, formerly Lestrange. Using some of the gold from her inheritance she never met her private investigators in person merely wrote them for news. Early that day Dell had received a letter stating that Lilith had been spotted near the mountains of great Britain. Now as the night fell at the orphanage she was packing supplies into her backpack.

Slipping down the stairs she snuck from the building and walked three blocks from the home before holding her wand arm out over the street. Appearing out of thin air came a triple decker purple bus that screeched to a halt in front of her. Climbing into the bus she paid for her ride and directed the driver to a village close to where her aunt had been spotted.

The ride was harrowing, holding onto a brass bed to avoid being thrown across the bus as it made impossible turns and drove at break neck speeds. The magical bus deposited her at her destination within half an hour, a trip that would have taken a muggle multiple hours. As the bus left she drew her wand and lit the tip before turning to the dark wooded area, if her sources were correct the camp would be near the peak, and she had lots of ground to cover.

As the hours wore on she regretted not learning to fly a broom, hating each step as the sun began to rise. The heat of the day settling into her bones forced her to pause for a break to drink water, the air was thing where she rested as the peak neared.

Lilith was up long before the crack of dawn, just as nearly always. She liked to train in these hours, because it gave her some time only for herself. The estate was mostly full of men and it was refreshing to spend some time alone. Dressed only in black tank top and leggings, she spent last hour punching the boxing back tirelessly. Just like she was doing it for more than half of her life now. She was a different woman compared to the girl she once was. She no longer hid her scars, but wore them for everyone to see. Her eyes turned steel blue thanks to the magical metal, that was now attached to her wrists for almost two decades. Lilith Morgenstern was a warrior. A pureblood princess, yet also one of not many children of Azkaban prison. 

Last couple of years, she spent here with her husband and rest of the Horsemen. She hated hiding, but there was nothing they could do. Not until the twins came back anyway. She alredy lost her parents and her grandmothers. There wasn't much left of the ancient house of Lestrange. Just her. And her aunt Bellatrix, but she was not born Lestrange and she was definitely not someone Lilith would like to associate herself with. Not anymore anyway. She often wondered if there were any other members of her family left. If she wasn't alone. But the only person she could think of, was Chase. And she haven't heard from her adoptive cousin for years. The two had a rocky relationship, partly cause by Lilith's ultimate choice to join the dark side, but Lilith liked to think they loved each other dearly at the end of the day. She did, anyway.

With one last punch, the boxing bag flew across the field, torn in multiple pieces. Lilith wiped her face with a towel and decided to go for a run, before taking a shower. She didn't run far, when she heard something. She sensed presence of a stranger shortly after, causing her to imidiately hide in the shadow and catiously approach whoever came so close to the temple. Nobody could know where they were. Innocent or not. Lilith's nails started growing, sharper than any dagger, they were part of her now, her best weapon. But before she could lunge at the intruder, she noticed it was just a girl, no more than eleven years old. 

The presence of a young soul made Lilith curious enough to step out of the shadow. Standing in a defense position, she was ready to attack any time if needed. She knew some kids were not what they seemed. Innocent face or not. But she had to first figure out whom she was talking to before killing the child. After all, the girl could be innocent and simply lost. "Hello?" she half greeted, half asked, her voice cold and dark.

As she climbed she felt the air thinning telling her she was almost there. Her steps became hurried, anxious to find the woman she was looking for. She followed the sound of a chain creaking, it sounded like someone was boxing perhaps. She began to run towards the sound but when she came to a clearing no one was there. Looking for any sign of life she suddenly heard "hello?"

Instinct kicking in Dell dropped into a defensive posture one hand raised and her wand arm poised to throw a spell if needed. Finally seeing the new person she gasped, relaxing. "Your her" the woman before her looked identical to the pictures of her mother's cousin. "Your Lilith"

Lilith expected many things, but recognition was not one of them. After all, she didn't just physically disappear from the face of the earth. In minds of people, she was gone as well, as if she never existed. It was something she managed to maintain. She rather convinced people that the pathetic excuse for existence she once was, didn't even really exist to begin with, than that she changed. That said, there weren't many people, let alone kids, who could possibly know who she was. 

"And you are?" she finally asked, no emotion showing on her face. She found it slightly amusing how the little girl tried to hold defense position, but they all had to start somewhere. Whomever this girl was, she was obviously looking for her. And either she was incredibly stubborn and determined to run away from home, defy everyone and risk her life or she had nobody and nothing to stop her from it. Being here, she earned Lilith's right to listen first and possibly harm later.

Blinking Dellen gasped "Oh my gods i'm sorry, Um i'm Dellen..Dellen Yaxley...Chase's daughter" she got out and smiled a bit, she could read the tension in the lines of the other woman's body but she kept he posture relaxed, her mother had said Lilith had learned to be a weapon and last thing Dell needed was to upset her.

The name of her long lost cousin rang in Lilith's ears as she closed the distance between herself and the girl, her unnatural steel blue eyes scanning every inch of her. "And where is your mother?" she asked finally, deep inside fearing for the worst. Chase was hotheaded and sometimes reckless. But she wouldn't send her daughter alone like that. Not unless she was dead. And no matter the conflicts the two had over the years, the thought of not having anyone at all, it felt like being stabbed with her own nails.

Dell's expression of happiness fell and dropped the dark woman's gaze. "...Dead" she said her voice husky with pain. "Witch hunters killed her...two years ago..I've been looking for you ever since."

Lilith knew it. The moment she saw the girl alone, she knew, yet hearing it hurt. She still remembered finding Chase all beaten up, by hunters too, years ago. "How old are you, exactly?" she finally asked, nothing on the outside giving away how she really felt. Chase was gone, leaving her truly alone. Lilith knew she will need some alone time. Or better, more of it, once she gets back to the temple.

She looked up at her and said "Eleven, mom used to say she found out she was having me after you and your husband had to go into hiding. I um have a letter for you from her.. She had given it to me to keep with my things in case she ever died..."

The letter said:

Dear Lilith,

At the risk of being dramatic, if you reading this I am either missing or dead and Dellen has found you. I searched for you when she was born, I made you her godmother, your the only person i thought was perfect enough to be there for my little girl. Since i cannot find you I have written into my will she will go to hedwigs home, the place i grew up until my mother found me.

I'm sorry i'm gone Lil, i'm sorry i wont be there to see your own children, I hope you an lucian are happy and I hope you will be happy always. I love you so much Lil, take care of yourself and if you can find it in you, look out for my little girl.

Love Always, your sister chase.


In the envelope was a picture of Chase and Lilith from Lil's wedding, laughing, chase's arms were around lilith and they looked so happy.

Lilith read the letter carefully before yet again, looking at the girl standing right in front of her. This was her goddaughter. Her only family left, her responsibility. Lilith was not sure she was ready for this. Her and Lucian never really get to talk about having kids themselves. She always thought there was time for such decisions. After all, they still had a lot of things to accomplish before bringing child into this World. Getting rid of its current leader was right on top. It sounded just like Chase though. To be the reckless one and bring a child into an age of despair such as this one.

Lilith never pictured herself as a mother. Or godmother for that matter. But her beloved godfather, Remus and his wife, they taught her that this was not to be taken lightly. And she couldn't just turn down the child that she was given the priviledge of taking care of. "Follow me," she said finally, turning around and heading back towards the temple. She hoped Lucian won't make a scene, since she had no clue how on Earth will he react to this. But this girl was not going back to the orphanage if Lilith had any say in it.

Cheeks flushing with nerves Dellen nodded and followed Lilith closely, the letter had been sealed with wax and she had never felt like disrespecting her mother and aunt by reading it so she had no clue what it said. Her pulse thrummed with anxiety as she trailed behind her like a slightly nervous shadow.

Lilith spent next twenty minutes thinking about how to talk to this girl. She remembered herself in her age. How would she want to be talked to? She had no clue how to start a conversation without freaking the girl out and before they knew it, they were standing in front of invisible wall of protection charms and curses, that kept the temple hidden from the outside World and Lilith couldn't avoid conversation any longer.

"Okay, listen. I don't know how to do this whole godmother thing, but I can promise you, that I will try my best. For that, I need you to hold my hand for the next few steps, so that the wall in front of us does not burn you alive. But before we do any of this, you need to know what it means. Your mother asked me to take care of you and I will, if you wish the same. If I take you to my home right now, you will stay there, with me and my husband. It will be your home, too. But it does come with a commitment. This place is sort of a home to a group of not-so-good people. And if you are to live here, you will one day be one of them. Is that something you want?" Lilith decided to go with honest and direct approach, now hoping the girl won't just run away, terrified.

Dellen watched Lilith closely as she spoke then allowed herself a small smile "I know about the Horsemen" she said her voice was low but steady. "Mum told me about them when she told me about you, But if you have me i'll stay." without hesitation she slid her hand into Lilith's, the magic in the air making the hair on the back of her neck rise.

Of course she did. Lilith had to smirk at that. Leave it to Chase to keep a secret to herself. But then again, Dellen knowing probably wasn't as bad as it could be. "I hope you remember what I said about having no clue how to be aunt or godmother or anything," she sighed only before squeezing her hand gently, just to reassure her she was here and was not letting her die so early into their newly found relationship. And with that, she led them through the walls of protection, revealing a small temple hiddne in the woods, humble one compared to the home she was once used to. "Welcome to your new home," she said, easing her hand so that Dellen could choose to let go if she wanted to. Now it was time to find the girl place to sleep. And also to find her husband and explain to him, why there is a child around suddenly.

"I dont know how to act around anyon that isnt mum or grandmums so we'll learn together" Dell said smiling at Lilith. As they stepped through the enchantment she felt the energy of magic flickering over her skin, she looked up at the temple "whoa"

Lilith couldn't help but smile at the reaction of the young girl next to her. "The old one used to be bigger. More... majestic," she sighed, nostalgia flooding her veins at the memory of her lost home. Horsemen gave Lilith everything. New life, love of her life, selfconfidence and happiness. The society made her, who she was. And she was quite proud of that. "So, which school are you to attend?" she asked Dellen as they slowly walked towards the temple. In her head, she kept thinking about how does this whole thing work. She probably couldn't just take a child and never return it back, right? She would have to consult her godfather on this.

"Mum was close with Grandma Dellen and Grandma Amy, they had me signed up for Wolfclaw because given her status with the order it would be safer. Grandma Amy showed me Wolfclaw, its beautiful but i wish i could go to Hogwarts like you and mum." she unraveled a bit, her high strung tense body loosening in the presence of her Aunt, "Mum said you were in slytherin right? I think i'd be a slytherin too. I don't think i'm good enough for gryffindor, not like mum."

Lilith frowned slightly at the last sentence Dellen said. "Wolfclaw is a good school. I agree with grandmother on the choice. It won't be easy for you, though," she replied. Lilith herself never got to see Wolfclaw, but she heard stories. And in the brief time she did spend at school, when tournament was on, she had quite a good picture of the school. She herself wouldn't survive there back then. "And there is no such thing as not being good enough for a house. Any house. In fact, were you to go to Hogwarts, Slytherin is the best choice, too. It's where Grandmother went. It's where most of our family went. Slytherin is a tradition and legacy. I myself hated the choice at the beginning. But there is a reason why Lestranges belong there. And there is no shame in that," she told Dellen, remembering her old days at school, when all she wanted was Ravenclaw or Gryffindor. Slytherin seemed like a punishment. But it was mainly because of who was there, than anything else. Lilith knew that now.

Lucian walked down the stone steps from the kitchens, where he had been stripping the hides off of kills he and other members of the horsmen had brought in, his heavy apron was covered in blood and he was languidly whipping blood off his hands though stubbornly the blood remained.

Turning the corner he paused and looked down the halls to his wife and a young girl, his wife was not bringing her in like a prisoner...hmm..

"My love" he said his dark eyes flashing with danger despite the affectionate term. "Who is this?"

Lilith could tell her husband did not appreciate presence of an intruder. So she took a deep breath and hoped he would understand what she was about to explain. "Lucian, this is Dellen Yaxley, daughter of my cousin Chase. She is also my goddaughter, making me... us her only guardians alive," Lilith began, feeling uneasy about the whole situation as she was panicking inside about how will Lucian take the news and how to actually take care of a child to begin with. "Dellen, this is my husband, Lucian," she finished itroducing the two, hoping nobody else comes barging in. It was enough that her beloved husband was covered in blood in front of an eleven year old, which she was quite sure was not in the instruction manual. But having other people asking questions before the three of them settle things down, that would not help either.

Dellen tensed at the approach of another stranger, she was barely getting to know her aunt and now another person was walking up to them. She looked up at the man and recognized him before her aunt introduced him from the photos. Mastering her nerves she stepped forward and walked up a few of the stone steps quickly to hold out her hand to him boldly "I'm so happy to finally meet you sir" she said

Lucian's brow raised subtly as the girl approached him to hold out her hand. A heartbeat passed until finally he grasped one of her hands in his large calloused one and shook it. "You must be related to my Lilith, adopted or not you just showed you have more balls then most men." he grinned wolfishly almost daring the girl to back down.

Crossing his arms he said "If you live with us you train. you learn our ways, you respect them. We may be what is left of your family but dont think for a second if you brought dishonor to our names that i wouldn't punish you like any other of my soldiers. You will have chores, and sometimes we have to run, if we run you run with us."

Dellen rolled back her shoulders, straightening her posture, "Yes sir. My mum told me about you and Aunt Lil, about your horsemen, and I want to learn to fight, i dont want to be a victim anymore, i am not without defenses but i am nothing and" she glanced at her aunt and smiled "I want to be strong like Aunt Lilith"

Lilith watched the interraction, pretty sure that this was not how parenting was done. Not even close. But that said, neither her, nor her husband, as she just found out, knew how the heck to raise a child. But at least Dellen seemed to go along with it. "I will show you around," she simply said, but inside she was proud that the girl who carried her grandmother's name had enough fire inside to earn it. She looked at Lucian, giving him a grateful smile, before leading the girl out. She knew he was annoyed most of the time when her family came around, and she appreciated that he gave her their niece a chance.
