Lillith’s Tails Part 6: Lillith's Children
It was long past midnight in a sleepy English village when the phone rang in a quiet bedroom, the room was sparse the owner having spent so long moving from hotel to hotel, he had never really cultivated the clutter of a normal person. The only visible expression of its owner's personality a small hand carved wooden chest at the foot of the bed. The sleeper stirred reluctantly at the screeching sound of the phone intruding into his dreams.
A dark skinned hand appeared from under the heavy covers and groped around until it found the phone.
"Hello, who is this?" The voice was sleepy but still melodic the words touched with a faint foreign accent.
"It’s me Eddy, Anjou something has happened… I'm going away for a while can you call the servants and have them come back in the morning and clean up the place… I've had a party and the place is quite messed up i'll leave the repairs in your hands." The voice on the other end of the line couldn’t have sounded more different, the words were strained and worried the talker seemed to be very worried about something.
"Is everything all right sir? You sound quite distressed." Anjou's voice sharpened as the last vestiges of sleep fell away his tone losing its singsong tone and developing a strong British accent.
"I'm fine Anjou, just fine I just have the urge to travel for awhile I will contact you in due time, until then look after the mansion and keep it prepared in case I return without warning."
"You will not be requiring me to travel with you sir?"
"No Anjou I'm… I'm going on my own this time, I'll keep in touch by email."
Anjou was about to reply when the line clicked and went dead. He knew that his employer was often given to such flights of hedonism but he had never sounded so disturbed before. Shrugging off his nagging worried Anjou rolled over and tried to get back to sleep, after all there was plenty of time to worry in the morning…
The Mansion turned out to be a total disaster area, half of the rooms had been reduced to total chaos, expensive sculptures smashed, pictures shredded and everything overturned, most of the upper floor was untouched but someone had gone through every closet in the place and thrown clothing everywhere. Anjou toured the disaster before the staff arrived picking his way from room to room surveying the wreckage. Edward Black super rich playboy and devoted hedonist had thrown some wild parties over the years but this one did not make even the slighted bit of sense. Eddy as he insisted on everyone calling him would never throw a party without at least a dozen of his well paid private staff to ensure his guests every need was fulfilled, and he certainly would have informed Anjou who's job it was to provide transport, entertainment and occasionally alibi's. No Anjou mused, this… chaos had been done systematically. Someone had gone from room to room destroying and wrecking everything they touched.
Anjou was wandering through the ruins of Eddy's largest art gallery picking his way over smashed statues and mounds of shredded clothing when he heard the distant sound of the main doors opening and the murmured conversation of the staff as they filed into the hall. Turning back to meet them he saw one of Eddies larger modern art pieces a gigantic metal snake made out of scrap iron, he had missed it before because the imposing statue had been reduced to a pile of shredded metal half covered with clothing. What caught his attention now was the head, its neck buried into the wall above the doorway… seven feet up.
Lauri stood in the entrance of the mansion and took in the devastation with a sinking feeling.
"It's going to take forever to clean this mess up."
Her friend Angelique shot her a sympathising smile. Lauri was one of the two full time Maids responsible for keeping the place tidy all year round, Angelique was the other and over the years she had cleaned up after some seriously destructive parties but this was something else. At 22 Lauri was the older of the two, hired straight out of the local high school at 16 and trained to be a professional maid at Eddy's expense. Beautiful dark eyes, long curly black hair, smooth fair skin and an impressive bust at DD she knew full well like the rest of the staff Eddy had hired her for her looks rather than any ability. Eddie usually went for slim bug breasted bimbo's but her rich full figure had been too much for the Billionaire playboy to pass up. However, as she had long since discovered it was a passing interest that usually stopped shortly after he took them to bed. The job paid triple what it should and if she had to put up with his wandering hands so be it. Angelique on the other hand was recently employed and still had that starry eyed expression that told Eddy hadn't tired of his new toy yet.
"The sooner you get started the sooner you will be finished girl, at least you have Angelique here to help you." Miss Parker a thin waspish woman with a short temper ruled the kitchens and the maids with an iron hand, currently she stood hands on hips glaring at Lauri for daring to speak. Unlike the two maids in their traditional black and white uniforms Miss Parker wore a severe white dress that emphasised her slim frame.
"We will all be working together to clean the house." Lauri started as Anjou appeared at the top of the stairs. "That includes you Miss Parker. The entire house is much the same as this so I have called in the entire staff, they will be here in another hour."
Lauri hid a smile at her superior's furious expression at being corrected in front of the two maids, Anjou Eddy's butler was the only member of staff who could order the head cook around and he would not stand for her bullying. Usually when Mr Black was away Anjou was always with him which left just the three of them to look after the house and a couple of gardeners to keep the grounds, If Anjou had called back the entire staff there would soon be a dozen more hands to help. Of course if the entire building was like this they would need them all.
"Will Mr Black be back soon Anjou?" Angelique's voice was soft and dreamy much like her personality.
"He will be back in due time he did not leave an exact date for his return just instructions to keep the place ready for him."
"Like we don’t do that already" Lauri muttered under her breath drawing another of Miss Parker's glares.
"Ladies if you would start in the kitchens I will send the rest of the staff to join you as they arrive."
Anjou watched as the three women headed for the wreckage of the kitchens, as soon as they were out of sight he headed for the elevator.
Even if Eddy's party had happened no human being could have torn apart that statue let alone hammered its head into the wall above the door, Anjou hurried to the secret hiding place of the one creature on earth likely to possess such strength.
The wine cellar was a mess, bottles smashed and racks turned to splintered kindling, Anjou stepped out of the lift into a sea of expensive wine staining the floor red as blood. The Vivarium door stood open the flickering lights revealing a mass of broken glass and bent metal of the snakes that inhabited it there was no sign. Anjou picked his way across the floor to the concealed lever that opened the door to Eddies most secret pet but found it gone. The whole mechanism had been torn out of the wall and lay in twisted pieces. Lillith's lair was locked and nothing short of a team of workmen with heavy equipment would open the door again.
Lauri lifted the remains of a splintered door and wiped her forehead on her sleeve. It looked like whoever had trashed the place has simply broken down any door that was locked and then trashed whatever they found beyond. The rest of the temporary staff that were usually called in when Eddy was at home had turned up some time ago relieving Lauri and Angelique of Miss Parker's ever watchful gaze, now the kitchen was in rough order and the work was spreading out to the surrounding rooms.
"Why break down the doors Eddy has a key that unlocks every room in the place." Angelique's petulant tone had been getting worse for the past hour.
"I don’t know what happened here Ange but this wasn’t a party looks more like a warzone, I think Mr Black pissed off someone and this is a warning."
Angelique looked shocked.
"Do you think Eddy might be hurt?"
"Its Mr Black to us Ange don’t let Miss Parker hear you call him by his first name again or she will have your guts on a plate." Lauri sighed at her friend's stubborn expression, it wasn’t her fault she was still new to this and still Eddy's favourite she would eventually realise her place and then she would probably quit like the rest but until then Lauri had a chance to teach her to accept her place.
"I don’t give a crap what that old bitch Sandra says Eddy told me to call him by his first name and I shall."
Angelique stood their with her hands on her hips glaring at Lauri, if she hadn't been five foot tall the diminutive blond would have looked stern but the skinny girl just managed to make herself look comical.
"Its got nothing to do with Mr Black, its protocol that’s one of the things you should have learned when he sent you to learn how to do this, you always call a butler and the head cook by their surname and the master is always sir or madam." There was much more to it of course but as it was usually just the four of them she didn’t have to bother with the rest of it.
"But we call Anjou by his first name." Angelique's tone was getting even more stubborn they had been over this before but she never listened.
"That’s because he doesn’t have a surname Anjou is the only name he's got and your avoiding the point Miss Parker will fire you if she catches you again."
"Eddy wouldn’t let her he's the one who decides who gets a job if she tries he'll fire her!"
Eddy wouldn’t even wave Angelique goodbye if she got herself fired Lauri mused. He would simply hire another cute ass and steal her virginity like all the rest, God Lauri thought to herself i'd better watch it I'm getting bitter in my old age.
"Look Ange just try and behave okay we don’t need any more trouble right now." Lauri leaned the badly sagging door against the wall and dusted herself down. "Now lets get out of here and find somewhere that doesn’t require me lifting things that weigh more than you."
"Hey what's this?" Angelique bent down and picked up something that had been hidden under the door, it glittered gold and green between her fingers.
"That’s odd looks like a scale or something it's probably from a fancy dress worn by one of his bimbos." The scale was roughly egg shaped its point ending in a flat end, the whole thing was about half an inch across and semi translucent green shot through with gold veins.
"I'd kill to wear things like all those models he hangs around with, I think i'd look better than them they all have boob jobs and liposuction to look that good."
If Angelique didn’t fill out more than her current B cup Lauri had no doubt Eddy would eventually offer her the same thing, the dumb blonde would accept too.
The two girls continued their friendly bickering as they made their way up the corridor.
Anjou was becoming seriously worried, every secret entrance to the underground areas of the mansion had been sabotaged. Levers ripped out, wiring destroyed, all the release mechanisms were ruined. Presumably anyone on the inside could still use them but no one could get in. Anjou was coming to some disturbing conclusions about the previous night's events. Eddy Black was the only employer Anjou had ever had, in his teens he and his entire people had been rescued from the poverty of the mainland relocation camps and returned by Eddy to their ancestral island. The only thanks Eddy asked for this seemingly benevolent act was loyalty, secrecy and a few people to train to work for him. Back then Eddy had been a young man scarce more than a child himself and filled with the drive to make himself incalculably wealthy. Anjou had been sent to England to learn the ways of civilised society as Eddy called it, mostly that meant learning how to lie more and more convincingly for his employer.
For most of his adult life Anjou had followed Eddy around as he made his fortunes and turned from a spoiled boy to a sadistic and debauched connoisseur of the depraved. Eddy was obsessed with sampling every carnal sensation not a single deviancy had gone untested but Eddy always returned to his one prime fetish, Vore. Anjou's people had always worshipped snake gods and vore was not so much a fetish to them as a divine communion, this was the reason the young Edward Black bought back the land of his people. A place where he could indulge in his most secret desires and hide his darkest secret. Some years ago Eddy had gathered the finest and most ambitious scientists in the world to his secret island hideaway. There deep under the sacred caverns of Anjou's people, under yet another of Eddy's sprawling mansions in an abandoned military complex he had them bring to life his greatest fantasy, Lillith a giant woman-eating snake. It was there Anjou first met Eve, a geneticist decades ahead of her time. Together with her lover Lisa they took Eddy's dream and made it reality and for their efforts Eddy used Lisa as the subject to be transformed into Lillith!
Anjou had for the first time realised just how dark his master had become and how far he had fallen beside him. He had gone to Eve and talked for the first time to an outsider about his people and their beliefs and had given her a desperate plan of revenge which she refused to share with him. All he knew was Eve had somehow changed Lillith to make the women she swallowed turn into Naga's instead of being simply digested, she had given Eddy his wildest fantasy and then left before the giant snake that had been her lover even awoke. He had never doubted her promise to return one day and have her revenge but when Eddy had told him just three days ago that Eve had returned and begged to let Lillith swallow her he began to think things might have changed.
That had been the last time he had seen Eddy, his master had dismissed the entire staff for a few days so there wouldn’t be any potential witnesses to silence later. Now it appeared something had happened but Anjou couldn’t for the life of him image what. After all Lillith might have the strength to wreck the house but smart as she was she surely lacked the intelligence to find the door controls, or Anjou thought with a sudden superstitious shiver, the hands to reach them…
Sandra Parker put the last of the knives back in the block and surveyed the re ordered kitchen, most of the damage had been repaired only the few hopelessly smashed cupboards had been carried out to throw away. Tiring of the idiotic hired help she had driven them out to finish on her own. Fifteen years ago Sandra had been an up and coming model, her looks had brought her all she wanted until they brought her to Edward Black. He had wanted her to work as his personal assistant at the mansion and although the job was a far cry from modelling it paid well and the chance to get her hands on one of the richest men in the world had been irresistible. Now her fame had long faded with her looks she had been passed by for other younger, easier girls and had fallen through the ranks until she found her place here in the kitchens. The few times she had tried to find somewhere, anywhere else it was made plain to her that with no qualifications and the threat of Eddy's displeasure hanging over her no one would employ her. A sudden noise interrupted her introspection as she turned she saw one of the pantry doors slowly swinging closed.
"Is someone there? Angelique if you're in there skipping off your duties i'll have you out of this house before the day is out."
Angry now she crossed the kitchen and threw the doors open.
A line of freezers in the old pantry hummed quietly in the silence, the room was empty. Sandra shrugged to herself and turned back to the kitchen, the last thing she saw was a pair of burning emerald eyes rushing towards her, her scream faded unheard upon her lips as a burning sting upon her neck brought dizzying darkness…
"What do you mean you can't find her?" Lauri stood glaring at the groundskeeper who until half an hour ago had been helping clean up the mess in the indoor swimming pool.
"Like I said Miss she's not here we've looked everywhere and Miss Parker isn't in the mansion."
"Of course she's here you idiot where else would she have gone to?" It was bad enough having to clean up this mess without the woman supposedly in charge hadn't decided to vanish into thin air. The two of them stood in the kitchens surrounded by a circle of tired looking servants.
"Look you know what that old bitch was like she's probably got in a strop and quit again, Anjou will know why don’t you ask him."
Lauri sighed with exasperation
"I would if anyone could find him no ones seen him for hours, now look she'll turn up eventually and if she has quit that doesn’t mean we should stop working so get back to what you were doing and lets try to survive without her." She watched the older man walk off muttering then glared at the crowd around her.
"Am I talking to myself, get moving people we've work to do!"
The crowd quickly shuffled off trying to look busy leaving Lauri on her own with an awe-struck Angelique.
"Jesus Lauri you had better be careful I think your turning into Miss Parker."
"Don’t Ange I'm not in the mood, now come on lets go see if we can find Anjou this mess is all we need right now."
Anjou turned the sound down on the kitchen monitor and sat thinking for a moment. Eddy's control room had still been accessible and he now sat in his master's black leather recliner watching the activity of the entire house on the monitors. Well, not the entire house the surveillance system in the underground network was malfunctioning and Anjou suspected the cameras were more than likely torn out of their hiding places. He had come up here hoping to get an idea of what was going on but the blank monitors and the buckled mess of the trapdoor down to the complex only deepened his worry.
He had been sitting there trying to think when the entire system went dead, every screen suddenly winked out and a few minuets later came back on without any assistance. Until he had heard the staff start searching for Miss Parker he had not attached any significance to the blackout but now he realised Miss Parker had disappeared exactly the same time the cameras went down. That meant someone had used the master controls in the lower complex to hide her disappearance. It also explained why the system was working at all, they needed the mansion system to keep an eye on the staff, someone was stalking them…
Sandra drifted gently back to consciousness in the darkness finding herself unable to move anything but her head. The air was hot and dry and smelled thick with some strange spicy musk. Her bonds whatever they were that encased her seemed to be massive yielding cables as thick as her waist that seemed strangely soft and warm and yet oddly marked as if covered with thousands of small grooves that imprinted on her sensitive skin. She tried to call for help but it came out a soft moan her vocal chords uncooperative in her half sleeping state. Suddenly her bonds began to move squeezing and rubbing against her the gently grating movement causing her to moan again in pleasure. The gloom seemed to be getting lighter and she started gently as something rubbed past her face, she had been buried completely she realised and now the gentle movement was bringing her to the surface. When she finally reached the light and saw what bound her she wished she were able to scream…
Lauri was glad to settle down to sleep in her cramped quarters that night, Anjou had shown up shortly after they started searching but had no idea where Sandra had vanished to. The general rumour was she had quit in one of her temper tantrums again and would probably show up again in a few weeks. Anjou had put Lauri in charge for the rest of the day, by the time they quit that night most of the place was set to rights, and a long list started of all the things that needed replacing. Anjou had dismissed the rest of the staff for a few days and when the replacement furniture and art started to arrive he would probably get them back in to help again. The three of them had eaten a hurried dinner together in the kitchen and then returned to the rooms they stayed in when they were left to take care of the place. Now as she lay in bed she couldn’t help wondering what had happened to Miss Parker.
Sandra lay bound and helpless by her lovers their burning kisses brought her stinging ecstasy, their lingering hands and caressing, teasing fingers set her body on fire. Serpentine coils of bronze and emerald green rubbed and squeezed about her massaging her body between them as long forked tongues took turns invading her willing mouth and over the three of them the ever watchful head of a giant ebony snake swayed hypnotically.
Gleaming red eyes gazed down at her from a strangely flawless face, sensual lips parting to reveal exquisite fangs in an otherwise perfect smile. Sweet soothing words flowed through her mind without meaning their hypnotic tone quieting her mind and increasing the rising flow of pleasure. Another face joined the smiling golden goddess as night to her day, long midnight hair a counter for the captured flame of her lovers tresses and two burning emeralds for eyes. She tried to raise her hands to touch them only to have them batted playfully away as the green-eyed goddess lowered her mouth to kiss her. Sandra moaned and closed her eyes as she lost control of her emotions entirely feeling the long trailing kisses working their way down her body teasing her clit to orgasm before continuing down to her feet. Another mouth found hers and wriggling fingers invaded her body making her gasp in pleasure as her toes were brought together and teased by a suckling mouth that seemed to be everywhere on her feet at once. She lay there twitching and moaning softly soft squeezing coils lovingly wrapping her, massaging and rubbing every inch of her flesh as her lovers probed every orifice and left her thoughts drifting on a sea of pleasure.
She dimly felt her hands being brought down to her sides and bound by a warm wet squeezing vice that crept ever further up over her body her mind drifted leaving her body to twitch gently at every teasing lick and bite. As she drifted off to sleep she was dimly aware of the world darkening to black again and the air becoming heavy and warm…
The next three days dragged on slowly marked only by ever increasing lists of things to replace. Lauri and Angelique worked slowly going from room to room with Anjou appearing occasionally to check on their progress. Anjou himself looked oddly flustered his usually spotless black suit rumpled and his shirt unchanged, where he vanished to Lauri had no idea but whenever she went looking for him he always seemed to appear coming from the direction of Eddy's apartments. Each night when they sat down for dinner he arrived later and later and usually left quickly and not to his own rooms.
Angelique lay half asleep in bed in the early hours of the morning no matter how hard she tried she just couldn’t get to sleep, rising quietly she went into the bathroom and turned on the shower.
"God its too dammed hot tonight." She checked the temperature and slowly started stripping off her nightdress.
Angelique looked at herself in the mirror taking in her shoulder length blonde hair and her rather skinny frame. Even though she had turned 18 over two months ago now she still looked about 16 which was frustrating when she kept trying to act like a lady for Eddy. Angelique smiled as she remembered Eddy's first visit to her bedroom almost two years ago, she had been lonely away from home for the first time and had welcomed his charming advances and extravagant presents. She stepped under the water and smoothed her hair back from her face, Eddy didn’t think she looked like a child he had even offered to have her breasts enlarged only last month. Angelique reached up and massaged her small breasts absently as she considered his offer again. Angelique was so distracted she didn’t hear her door swing open…
Anjou was sitting in the control room meditating quietly when the screens died again, he had spent the last three days in and out of a meditative trance watching the screens and waiting patiently. Without a sound he rose and ran from the room into the darkened mansion.
Lauri was dozing in the twilight between sleep and waking. The night was uncomfortably hot and her air conditioning had stubbornly refused to work. She had long since stripped off the bedcovers and lay naked in the darkness.
Dimly she heard the shower turn on in Angelique's flat the thin walls of the servants quarters about as effective at blocking the noise as a piece of wet tissue paper.
The splashing in the shower was soothing and Lauri began slowly slipping into deeper sleep. She was shocked awake by Angelique's ear-splitting scream.
"What the fuck?!" Lauri shouted jumping out of bed, Angelique's high soprano screeching passed through Lauri's head like a knife. Grabbing her bed sheet she threw it around herself and hurried out of her room and into the hallway. Angelique's doorway was open and her friends' screaming was painfully loud.
"Ange? What's wrong?" Lauri entered her friends darkened room just in time to see the outline of a man backing out of the bathroom his hands raised before him in supplication.
"What the hell!" Lauri slapped the light switch illuminating the scene, Anjou dressed in a sopping wet white robe was trying to calm a hysterical Angelique who Lauri could see beyond him clutching the shower curtain about herself and screaming her lungs out.
"Sorry so sorry the security alarms went off I thought we had an intruder so I came to see, sorry so sorry." Anjou's voice was strained he looked exhausted and his usually perfect British accent sounded thick and foreign, His robes were barely decent soaked as they were and Lauri could clearly see that Anjou was covered from his neck down in strange swirling black tattoos.
"Ange shut the hell up no one is murdering you, Anjou what the hell is going on?" Anjou turned towards her his sheer soaked robe disturbingly transparent revealing more of his anatomy than Lauri was happy seeing. As he turned she also caught sight of the pistol tucked in his robes at the waist.
"Lauri, so sorry the alarms they went off I thought… So sorry please Angelique has had a shock I thought she was in trouble please calm her. I must go must see to the security system, so sorry I thought…" Anjou's Accent had totally disappeared and he spoke with an odd singsong cadence. He seemed as shell-shocked as Angelique who had finally stopped screaming and had decided to try and hide as much of herself as possible with the semi-transparent curtain.
"She was in danger in her bathroom? Not many robbers would head straight for the servants quarters Anjou, go on get out we can talk in the morning go get some sleep you look exhausted." Lauri passed the stunned butler and went to hug her friend. Behind her she could hear Anjou leaving and as his footsteps in the stone hallway faded Angelique collapsed into floods of tears in her arms.
"Shhh, come on now Ange its all right your fine just had a bit of a shock is all." Lauri's calm friendly words slowly stopped her friend's sobs but she still clung to her in a deathgrip through the curtain.
"Come on Ange I'm getting soaking wet here let's get you dried off." Lauri disentangled herself from the frightened girls clutches and reached past her to turn off the shower, then grabbing a towel she all but dragged Angelique into the sitting room and sat her down on the sofa.
"What happened Ange?" Lauri asked gently as she patted her friend dry trying not to notice what she was doing.
"I.. I was just taking a shower… so hot tonight, then Anjou was in the bathroom and he.. he had a gun pointed at me!" She dissolved back into tears at that point as Lauri tried not to frown.
"Calm down honey Anjou's not the sort to peek on a girl and trust me he's had his offers over the years always turned them down. He says he was looking for a burglar or something." Angelique looked terrified at the mere mention of burglars.
"D.. Do you think there are any?"
"Of course not! Hun half the house is still messed up and I've seen wiring ripped out all over the place the security system probably had a short-circuit and took your shower as world war three or something." Lauri gave her friend another hug and wrapped the towel around her shoulders.
"I'm okay now Lauri, thanks for coming to my rescue." Angelique suddenly realised she was totally naked and made a hurried attempt to hide herself under the towel.
"Nothing I haven't seen before Ange you forget I have three sisters, now go on go back to bed i'll lock your door as I go out. Get a chair and put it under the handle if your still worried your perfectly safe here hun."
"Thanks Lauri you always look out for me" Angelique followed Lauri to the door "Guess I just panicked, Anjou's too nice to do something like that." She grinned suddenly as she was struck by something. "God Lauri that guy is well hung, and those tattoos! Who would have thought it I thought he was so normal like a piece of the furniture."
"Goodnight Ange, don’t let Eddie hear you singing the praises of his butler or he might just get jealous." Smiling she left Angelique's door and went back to bed smiling to herself… after all its not everyday she got to see someone that well built near enough naked, and damn if he didn’t put his boss to shame.
Angelique dragged a table in front of the door, then she piled it with half the junk in her sitting room. Satisfied she walked back to bed, if she wasn’t Eddies girl Anjou would make a dammed good boyfriend all those cool tattoos she never would has suspected it.
She flicked the light switch and groaned as the bulb flashed brightly and went dark.
"Dammed bulb! Well I'm sure as hell not shifting all that stuff to go get another one"
She clambered into bed, snuggled amongst the covers, it really was hot tonight, and there was a really weird smell in the air… Kinda like the Vivarium Eddy had in the basement, he really had a thing for snakes it was the one thing she really couldn’t stand about him…
Lauri settled back to sleep Dimly she heard Angelique shifting things in front of her door and then silence, in the morning she would have to have a long talk with Anjou about this whole thing. She lifted her head as Angelique started banging around in her bedroom but she stopped quickly so she paid it no heed, the silly girl probably put something in front of her bedroom door too…
The next day Lauri woke late to the gentle patter of rain on the single skylight above her bed. She glanced lazily at her alarm clock and started when she saw the time.
"Dammit stupid alarm must have forgotten to turn it on with all the fuss." Hour's late and Angelique hadn't battered down her door? The silly girl was probably enjoying the rest as Sandra's absence had left Lauri in charge.
"Better get up before Anjou comes looking." Hurriedly she dressed and headed for Angelique's room expecting to have to hammer for half an hour but when she knocked on the door it swung open unlocked and unbarred.
"Ange?" The room sitting room looked a mess the drawers open and empty Angelique's usual mess vanished without a trace. Lauri walked over to the bedroom door but if anything the bedroom was even emptier even the bed sheets were missing only a single sheet of paper left on the edge.
Walking over to the bed Lauri picked up the note and read it slowly disbelief making the whole thing seem unreal.
I can't stay here anymore last night was just the last straw, I'm not cut out for this job. Decided to go in the night so I wouldn’t have to argue with you.
I'll be in touch Lauri don’t be worried
Lauri crumpled the page in her hand and turned to go, just as she was about to leave the room she caught a glimmer of shining red on the floor. Bending down she picked it up shimmering translucent copper the scale glinted between her fingers like a piece of captured fire.
"This is insane Angelique would never have written this it just makes no sense!" Lauri had hunted for Anjou for half an hour before she saw him leaving Eddy's rooms still dressed in those flowing white robes, as soon as she had reached him she launched into angry shouting.
"Lauri please I don’t understand it either but the first I knew of it was when you told me."
"Don’t give me that shit Anjou there's something fishy been going on for days Eddy gone without warning, the place a ruin, Sandra missing for more than three days she's never been gone this long before. Now Angelique vanishes in the middle of the night just after you storm into her room with a gun! There's something rotten here and you know dammed well what it is!" Lauri paused for breath her face reddened with anger. "Now either you tell me what the hell is going on or I go to the police and I don’t stop yelling till every cop in the county is sitting on the doorstep!"
"Now, now. No need to get the police involved, i'll admit there's more to Mr Blacks disappearance than you know but I swear to you I have no idea what happened to her." Anjou had retreated back into his British shell but his eyes were still wild and he looked like he hadn't slept again.
"Then tell me Anjou what the hell is going on here?"
"Lauri just how friendly did you get with Mr Black when you first came here?" Lauri frowned at the odd question.
"I don't see as its any of your business Anjou but I fell for him if that’s what your asking but as his ever present shadow i'd assume you knew that already."
"Did he ever tell you about his snakes? Did he ever mention someone called Lillith?"
"I remember Angelique telling me Eddie promised to introduce her to his friend Lillith sometime a few weeks back but I've never met her, and what do Eddy's snakes have to do with all this?"
"Eddie… Mr Black, he has always been fascinated by snakes its one of the reasons he bought my peoples island and brought me to work for him. He is also a very twisted man he likes… hurting people and uses his money to fulfil his darkest fantasies." Anjou paused his eyes taking on a haunted look
"You have no idea the things that man is capable of but I have had to serve him all these years or my people will lose their homes and go back to being refugees in some filthy relocation centre again. Some time ago He hired a lot of scientists to create a giant snake that he could… feed his girlfriends to."
Anjou paused watching Lauri's horrified expression.
"He did something awful to one of those scientists, a young woman… He turned her into the snake they had designed… The woman, Lisa… she was in love with the head of the project, another woman named Eve. When he did that to Lisa… when he, changed her Eve swore revenge. She was a genius, a geneticist, she changed the way the snake ate people it wouldn’t kill them…"
Anjou met Lauri's eyes his eyes filled with remembered pain.
"Instead it would change the first two into a crossbreed half human half… serpent, they were supposed to be designed to be the perfect slaves subservient and without free will of their own but…"
Anjou paused again his face a mask of fear Lauri could literally see the usually unruffled butler shaking with terror.
"I think Eve lied to Eddy, she planned some great revenge and when she turned up last week and demanded she and her new girlfriend be fed to Lillith she was completing that revenge. The whole mansion is filled with secret passages but now all of them are broken from the outside, Eddy has vanished and some… Thing is stalking us!"
"Why, Why the hell didn’t you tell us? Anjou Sandra and Angelique and missing! They could be dead! And you have just let us stay here with some form of monster on the loose!"
Lauri was furious, she watched as Anjou slumped to the floor looking completely destroyed the mild mannered English butler facade totally fallen away revealing the heartbroken terrified man underneath.
"Sorry so sorry Lauri, but you don’t understand I had to follow orders, if I ever disobey him he will take my peoples homeland away. I'm sorry but I cant risk that, i'll follow his order until I'm sure he is dead only then can I be free. The police would just think you were insane and even if you could get them to believe you do you really think they would allow the world to discover the truth of what happened here? You, we would have an 'accident' and the secret would be kept."
"This is England Anjou our government wouldn’t do that!" Lauri's voice sounded uncertain even to herself.
"I have seen it done before here Lauri, you forget I must do Eddy's dirty work there are those who keep such things secret, who quietly hide the truth from the people."
Anjou looked like a puppet with his strings cut, his usually dark coffee complexion looked grey and his whole body slumped like a man pushed too far over the edge.
"So we can't tell anyone that doesn’t mean we can't save ourselves, Anjou I'm getting the hell out of here and if you have any sense you will come with me."
Anjou's face twisted with indecision for a moment and then changed to a determined expression.
"Your right I may not be able to leave but you cannot be risked any longer, lets get you out of here!"
He reached out an arm to her and heaved himself to his feet.
Together they ran down the long hallway towards the front of the house passing luxurious rooms and expensive works of art. They dodged past the few remaining piles of wrecked furniture and made for the long staircase into the main hall, Lauri was out of breath by the time they reached the bottom her plump figure not suited for running. As they raced towards the heavy main doors she felt as if a band of hot iron was clamped down upon her chest, her legs burned and her breasts ached from bouncing.
"Your safe once you leave the grounds Lauri head home and whatever happens don’t tell anyone about this."
"Come with me Anjou you can't seriously intend on staying here." Lauri's breath came in short panting gasps
"I must do as I was ordered miss and I was told to keep the mansion ready for Mr Black's return i'll not risk my people for my life alone."
Anjou's voice had regained his English accent and for a moment Lauri almost laughed at the dark skinned gentleman in his flowing white robes.
"Keep safe then you maniac I hope you will be okay!"
Anjou finished unlocking the heavy door and threw it open filling the hall with the sound of heavy rain the sky was thick with black clouds and rent with lightning. It was the most welcome sight Lauri could ever remember.
She threw herself out into the storm heading for the distant gates thundering along the gravel drive her ears filled with the sound of drenching rain and flying gravel. Her heart raced as she entered the tree-lined avenue that led up to the gatehouse. The trees cut out most of the light from the storm tossed sky but the rain seemed to pour through uncaring her maids outfit clinging to her icy cold with water. A flash lit up the darkness ahead the tall gates silhouetted by the lightning. Lauri's heart racing she threw herself the last few yards crashing into the ornate iron gates. The cold iron was freezing under her hands slick with icy water, desperately she pushed against them and felt them begin to swing open against her weight. Then with a screech of abused metal grating against metal the gates shuddered to a stop. Lauri threw herself against the gates shaking them back and fourth but they clung stubbornly together five inches apart, looking up at the gates in desperation she couldn’t see the problem. The ornate metal gates topped with long spear points just refused to budge, then a flash of lightning lit up the night sky illuminating the problem. The fancy metalwork had been twisted and bent, the top of the gates was a mess of interwoven metal.
A sudden rasping hiss in the darkness made Lauri whirl around in fear, the darkness under the trees now seemed filled with hidden movement.
"Is. is there someone there? Anjou?" Lauri's voice sounded cracked and broken coming in heaving gasps. It took every bit of courage she had left to put her head down and run back toward the house. The run back was terrifying, every sound sent her eyes searching the darkness every moving shadow became some hidden monster ready to strike. She made the doors running on pure fear alone her feet falling out from under her as she struggled the last few yards. Dimly she felt the skin of her knee split against the sharp gravel of the path as she forced herself back to her feet. The door hung open and she fell through it tripping over something white on the last step her whole body burning with exertion. If she could find Anjou perhaps they could find a way to get help, perhaps they could find somewhere to hide until someone came looking.
"Anjou! Anjou where are you!" Lauri's scream echoed around the great hall she whirled around to shut the door behind her and stopped in terror.
The back of the door was a ruined mess the locks burst from their mountings leaving great splintered holes in the solid oak, but far more terrifying was the soaked and blood spattered white robe that lay across the great stone steps.
"Oh god Anjou! What the fuck am I going to do now!"
Lauri picked up the sodden robes the water making them heavy as lead in her hands, as she spread them out she could see great tears in the fabric where it had been ripped off its wearer. With a heavy clang Anjou's pistol fell out of the ruined robes hitting the floor between her feet.
Lauri let the robes drop and scooped up the pistol feeling the unfamiliar weight of the gun in her hand, it looked sleek and deadly the dull black metal icy in her grip. Well she was armed, for all the good it had done Anjou and he had at least known how to use it. The mansion seemed alive to her then, the darkened house filled with a deep organic heartbeat as it watched and waited. The hammering she realised was her own heart sounding like thunder in her ears but she still couldn’t shake the feeling that she was being watched. There had to be somewhere in this whole house she could hide somewhere out of sight of the cameras.
The mansion was huge filled with odd rooms and passages that didn’t seem to go anywhere, the original owner had been a local man he'd been as 'eccentric' as only a rich man could get without being locked away and had built the place like a fortress. Lauri had even heard the granite bedrock under the house was honeycombed with some vast fallout shelter. When Eddy took over he had altered most of the building the only areas still the same were in the cellars. Wait that was it! There was an unused vault down in the cellar, the old fool had kept his money there distrustful of banks in the end but she was sure Eddy hadn't renovated it yet! No matter how strong these snake things were they couldn’t tear their way through a foot of solid steel! Limping slightly she raced over to the lift and hammered on the down button. Eddy was so lazy he had he stairwell ripped out and replaced with a lift so he didn’t have to walk up and down stairs as much. The lift doors slid open silently and Lauri jumped in hitting the down button and keeping the gun pointed out of the slowly closing doors.
The lift gave a gentle jolt as it began its journey downwards the soft electric hum soothing Lauri's shattered nerves. With a terrific jolt Lauri was thrown from her feet the whole lift shaking and twisting the lights flickering and failing, from above she heard strange sibilant laughter tapering off into a long hissing. Lauri lay on the floor of the lift terrified as metal squealed and groaned about her, for an instant all was silent in the darkness then the floor seemed to fall away beneath her as the lift plummeted downward.
The fall was short and the lift hit the bottom, all too quickly the wailing scream of tortured metal ending in a terrific crash as the lift hit the bottom of the shaft. Dazed and bruised Lauri scrabbled at the lift doors until she forced her fingers in between and slowly inched them open. The outer doors had opened with the crash and Lauri stumbled out of the wrecked lift into the ruins of the wine cellar. Dim emergency lighting illuminated the smashed piles of wine racks the few remaining lighting panels flickering on and off randomly making the cellar appear to be in the midst of its own personal storm. Everywhere she looked there were heaps of broken glass and splintered wood and the air was heavy with the smell of soured wine. The air was warm and damp much hotter than it had been whenever she had come down here for wine.
Picking her way across the cellar she made her way toward the vault her feet sticking on the tacky floor, the stench of drying wine was overpowering and Lauri could almost imagine herself picking her way across the stomach of some giant beast. The door to the vault was in the far end of the cellar hidden behind a row of wine racks. Lauri could still remember one of the older maids showing her how to find the hidden switch, Melissa had used it to meet one of the gardeners away from Miss Parker's prying eyes but she had been gone for years now and Lauri had never tried the door again.
The far end of the cellar was heaped with the twisted ruins of dozens of wine racks, Lauri stifled a scream as a fat python slid out of a twisted ruin of wood and metal to cross her path.
"Fuck the Vivariums are down here they must be trashed too, keep it together Lauri" talking to yourself, she mused was the first sign of madness, but the sound of her own voice seemed to give her strength.
Jumping over the slow moving python she reached the vault door, the wine racks had been torn away revealing the half open vault door with its touch panel switch a broken mess of twisted wire. The heavy door moved slowly as she pulled upon it, the weight was colossal but slowly she forced it open until she could slide through. Holding her breath she forced herself into the vault feeling buttons tear on her uniform as she slowly forced her ample body through the tight space. She was halfway through when she became stuck fast her white shirtfront caught on the locking mechanism, she struggled against the material as the seconds crawled by like years. From the cellar she heard a low hissing noise like gas escaping from a broken pipe deep and guttural. Panicking she threw herself against the door scrabbling against the cold metal trying to find a purchase with her fingers as the hissing grew closer. With a rip she fell through leaving half her shirt trapped in the doorway buttons raining down on the cold stone floor. The door slammed shut with a deep booming crash like the chiming of some vast bell, half deafened Lauri scrambled to her knees and turned the locking wheel hearing the satisfying crunch of the locking mechanisms settling into place.
"Break through that you fuckers!" Lauri screamed at the door falling back to the floor in exhaustion as some great weight slammed repeatedly against the heavy metal. Totally spent she collapsed panting her whole body wracked by the strength of her gasping breaths. For what seemed like hours she lay there looking up at the dull grey of the concrete ceiling feeling as if the whole world was spinning around her but slowly the dizzy spell passed and she began to take notice of the room around her.
When Melissa had shown her the vault all those years ago it had been a big rectangular room with an old mattress saved from its journey to the garbage bins. Now the room had changed drastically a row of open freezers lined one wall and most of the far wall had gone entirely, what she saw beyond made her think for a moment she had lost her mind entirely. Where there should have been a blank concrete wall there was now a broken glass doorway that led out into a garden, over a hundred foot underground on the bottom level of Eddy's cellars the impossible doorway led into a green landscape filled with trees and flowering bushes.
Lauri slowly got to her feet her ruined shirt falling off a torn and useless rag leaving her in her short black skirt and lacy bra, limping forward she passed the row of emptied freezers and stepped out into the warm sunlight.
The illusion lasted a few moments before she looked up and saw the row upon row of UV lights covering the high granite ceiling that must have been sixty feet up. The black granite walls were covered in climbing plants and the floor sloped in a series of soft hills complete with trees and plenty of heavy foliaged plants, but as the first impression faded Lauri began to notice more details. Many of the once beautiful sculpted trees lay on the ground snapped to kindling. Huge monoliths of rough stone that had once been imbedded in the floor were thrown from their resting places leaving huge gaping holes in the heavy loam and there was a gaping hole in the rock wall about twenty foot up leading off into darkness. All in all it looked like the tranquil landscape had been torn apart by some incredible vindictive force.
"Eddy what the hell did you do down here?" Lauri whispered to herself as she began exploring the impossible chamber, first she headed for the huge hole in the wall but there was no obvious way up. The whole chamber was swelteringly hot and soon her remaining clothes were soaked with sweat. About halfway around the chamber the ground became sandy, forming gently undulating dunes. The ground sloped down to a rounded hole in the wall half filled with soft white sand.
Getting down on her hands and knees Lauri began to crawl down the sloping sand towards the hole, too late she realised the soft shifting sand was too loose to take her weight and the slow crawl became a helpless slide into the darkness.
Lauri ended her slide against cool stone, blinded by sand she rubbed at her eyes trying to clear them but a deep hiss made her freeze in terror. The hissing was joined by a silken rasping sound like a thousand knives being dragged over silk, a familiar voice groaned in the darkness the feminine moan heavy with passion. Blinking away the sand Lauri looked up to a sight that could have come straight from her nightmares.
For a second it seemed as if two women were holding each other upright waist deep in writhing serpents with another lying with her head in another girl's lap, then reality forced its way into Lauri's numbed mind.
Angelique was being held against the chest of a beautiful olive skinned woman with long raven black hair. Angelique was moaning and panting in orgasmic passion her reddened face drenched with sweat two dark puncture wounds burning red against the pale skin of her neck. The other woman was pale as china against the others dusky skin, her deep coppery curls were spread out over the mountainous coils beneath her, but what made Lauri's blood freeze in blind terror was the fact that the redheads jaw and neck were grossly distorted around Angelique's waist. Even as she watched frozen in place the strange woman's neck rippled and Angelique slipped deeper into the waiting maw.
"Don’t be scared love she's enjoying her fate, as will you my dear." The raven-haired temptress had a voice like silk, her seductive smile revealing two long snow white fangs in an otherwise perfect smile. With shock Lauri realised she recognised this alien creature, from the waist down her olive skin gave way to deep green scales thickening into massive coils but from the waist up she looked like one of Eddy's girlfriends.
"Good memory tasty girl, I can smell your flavour from here." Maria's voice was deeper than Lauri remembered but that smile was the same.
"What happened to you Maria! What are you!"
"Shhh don’t shout my pet our ears are sensitive, you would not wish to piss us off. Dawn and I have been through some, changes but we are still people, our appetites have simply… changed."
With horror Lauri realised the woman busy sliding Angelique's belly into her mouth was another of Eddy's girlfriends, her friend was moaning in delirious passion as Dawn pulled her down into her.
"Don’t worry about your friend, all she can feel is passion now. Our bite is filled with lust it seems, our mother is proud of her babies."
"Your mother?" Lauri stammered
"Lillith silly, she's nesting with her egg at the moment or we would introduce you. But she has Anjou and dear Eddy to keep her company while we feast."
Angelique's moaning hit a new pitch as she visibly climaxed her slim body sliding deeper and deeper into Dawn her tight belly disappearing out of sight.
"What have you done with Miss Parker?"
"Mmmmm Sandra was most entertaining." Maria rubbed her scaled belly and for the first time Lauri noticed a slight bulge much smaller than the one Angelique was making in Dawn.
"She was rather skinny, but don’t worry my love its my turn to eat now, Dawn has her meal and you look so plump and juicy I just can't wait for you to join her in here." Maria said rubbing the bulge in her belly.
Lauri was terrified she started scrabbling at the sandy slope trying to climb her way back up as Maria laughed and massaged Angelique's small breasts as they began to slide into Dawn's waiting mouth. The frantic attempt to climb only pulled more sand down filling the entrance even more, a dark shape fell amongst the white sand landing hard against her thigh. Lauri grabbed the pistol and whirled to face Maria who suddenly stopped laughing.
"Ooh a toy I think I'm going to enjoy feisty prey so much more fun than this one she barely struggled." Maria released Angelique's head that she had been fondly stroking and rose up over the writhing mass of copper and green coils her massive scaled body going up and up.
"Stay away or i'll shoot you Maria, get Dawn to spit out Angelique and let us go or I swear i'll kill you!" Lauri's hand was shaking as she held out the gun but she kept it trained on Maria's chest.
"Now that’s no way for a nice juicy meal to behave is it? Besides I'm afraid Dawn is almost finished." Maria glanced down at Dawn whose lips were just sliding up over Angelique's open mouth.
"I'm warning you Maria, let her out."
Maria dived forward at Lauri her huge frame moving with inhuman speed, but Lauri's finger twitched in fright.
Before Lauri could even scream she was entwined in emerald coils stronger than steel.
"Poor sweet baby, our eyesight is better than yours too and unlike you I know enough about guns to see the safety was on."
"Don’t be so hard on the poor thing Maria its only human after all." Dawn had sat up on her coils the bulge in her belly twitching gently, her voice was like thick honey deep and mellow.
"I can be as hard as I like she's my meal" Maria replied petulantly as Lauri fought for breath.
"P. Please, don’t eat me…"
"Oh shush sweetie one bite and you will be begging for me to swallow you down." Maria brought her head down and parted her coils enough to allow access to Lauri's tender neck, her lips we're cool as she kissed and sucked before sinking those delicate white fangs into Lauri's soft flesh. The bite stung but the pain faded quickly replaced by waves of burning heat that seemed to flow all the way through her body, the heat didn’t hurt. Rather as time passed it began to feel more and more pleasant.
Lauri's thoughts were disturbed by her captor's voices, they seemed strangely distant as if talking from far away.
" I still think it's unfair, this one is better than the other two combined. You should have given me both the skinny ones."
"If you had waited another hour while I herded her down here you would be the one to eat her but you stuffed your face with the little skinny one so its my turn."
Idly Lauri wondered what they were talking about, suddenly it seemed so hard to think clearly it was getting dark and the heat was making her skin so sensitive against the cool scales that she couldn’t think.
Suddenly a deeper hiss buzzed through Lauri's skull, looking up she saw a pair of amazing green gold eyes looking back at her from the darkness. The dark shadow came into focus the head of a huge silvery black snake blotted out most of the light from the tunnel the little light getting through seemed to glow like a halo around its giant head.
"Mother I hunted her I should get to eat her." Maria's voice was petulant, she looked as if she was talking to someone but Lauri couldn’t hear anyone else.
"Yes mother." Now her voice was resigned but still Lauri couldn’t hear anyone else, then all thought was driven from her mind as the coils holding her moved rubbing against her incredibly over sensitised skin making her gasp and moan with almost painful pleasure.
Slowly Maria's coils offered Lauri up in front of the gigantic reptile. Lillith's breath sent waves of pleasure through her sensitive skin waves of heat burning down to her crotch. She reached up a dreamy hand and touched the cool scales watching disconnectedly as the huge maw opened up and her hand slid inside against the warm wet folds.
Lauri felt fingers exploring her body as Maria and Dawn stroked and teased her pinching her nipples and running long sharp nails across her sensitised skin. Gasping Lauri wriggled against the encircling coils that were lifting her towards the waiting mouth, her hands explored the huge wet maw running over blunted teeth and playing with the huge blue black forked tongue that darted in and out tasting the sex filled air.
Maria's coils began massaging her gently as so was slowly pushed further and further forward feeling her head contact the warm wetness of Lillith's throat. As the warm saliva ran down her neck Lauri's head suddenly cleared.
"No you're eating me, Noooo!"
"Hush sweetie you will spoil mothers dinner, just relax and enjoy the feelings you are about to be blessed beyond your wildest dreams." Maria nibbled on Lauri's earlobe as she whispered in her ear.
"Its nothing you can fight Lauri dear just relax and it won't be so bad, we had to go through this too and it's so much better when you give in."
Dawns face came up alongside Lauri's her strange orange eyes burning with passion.
"No, no I don’t want it I don’t want to be like you." Lauri managed to whisper against the mounting tide of pleasure.
"Shhh Lauri just let it go, let us help you." Dawn whispered kissing her neck, before Lauri could even wriggle Dawn sank her teeth deep into her shoulder pumping burning fluid into her body.
Lauri moaned in pleasure, the moan turning into a scream as Maria sank her teeth into her other shoulder pulling her hair back and muffling her scream in the soft roof of Lillith's mouth.
The world span and reality seemed to fade out entirely, Lillith's ever widening maw seemed hypnotic the rhythmic massaging of Maria's coils drove all lucid thought from her mind. The long black tongue wrapping lovingly around her breasts felt like a lovers arms the teasing touch of other women's lips sent her shuddering over the edge of orgasm again and again. In the end she gave in, the relentless tide of pleasure driving fear from her mind. The darkness of Lillith's throat seemed an inviting hollow, a place to curl up and melt away. The teasing hands pushed her further the strong muscles of the reptilian throat grasping her shoulders and pulling her into its loving embrace, as her breast slid into Lillith's throat the teasing fingers slid regretfully from her nipples and buried themselves deep in her dripping quim. Slowly she felt her silken belly slide in to join her powerful throat muscles squeezing and massaging her as she slid deeper and deeper.
The kissing mouths were teasing her thighs nipping and biting as they pushed her inside long flexible fingers buried themselves in her ass and sodden pussy whilst others teased every inch of exposed skin with those sharp nails.
Lauri could feel that endless tongue sliding deep inside her guided by teasing hands as her ass slipped past blunted teeth and into the contracting throat. Those thrusting fingers slid from inside her scratching and squeezing along her legs coming to rest on her ankles and pushing her inwards sliding her thighs into that supple waiting tunnel its deep red walls pulsing with hunger.
The last thing Lauri felt before she orgasmed were two pairs of needle sharp fangs biting into her feet, feeling her toes wriggling helpless in a pair of suckling mouths.
Then the world fades out to black the dim red walls darkening as she slowly entered a larger space…
Anjou watched Lillith slither back into her new den in the abandoned complex from his prison of twisted bars hammered into the floor to form a crude cage. Her two unique children escorted the giant black snake and he could clearly see that all three of them sported large bulges in their bellies.
The three huge snakes returned to the warm sand of their nesting chamber coiling up to sleep around a single huge egg
