Its been some weeks now since I told Matias the truth about his sister, I've waited patiently for him to return but there's been no sign of him. None of this would have happened if not for that night, none of this would have happened if I had stayed detached as I should have. Yet here I am I swear I've put a track in the carpet from my pacing, he hasn't come home and deep down I knew this would be the case. I need him to come home, I need him here. Not just for my own sake but for the sake of the family, the family I've helped to grow, become strong and ultimately lead.
Its not just Matias who has left for three of my dearest friends have also gone, Zekkiel, Yui and Syrin, they upped and went without so much as a goodbye leaving me reeling. I know they can look after themselves I don't need to search for them and I hope to meet them again one day. Syrin's absence had left the vampires without a forge worker, so Bronson offered his services as is his right along with Raven's assistance. Gone are the days of flirting with the Prince, or drinking with him and the other two, in some cases though I'm used to being alone but with all of these absences I haven't felt more desolate inside myself.
So I'm going to leave Charm just pack up some things and go, have my seconds take over for me while I'm absent. Pretty much the entire city has emptied out even the angels are gone, we're left with nothing to do but twiddle idle thumbs and walk on restless feet. I have no idea where to start looking for Matias, he's a human perhaps trying in human dominated areas might get me somewhere. However I'll have to be careful not to reveal myself for one slip means I loose my host, thank fuck for a host the one defence I got to prevent me going to the Abyss. Host hopping is easy enough if I loose it, if I keep dropping them before my hair goes blue I won't be found. Hopefully. That's the theory anyway.
First stop Portch.
