Run in (Marcello & open) - Posted By Luna (packhuntress54) on 30th May 12 at 1:50am

Just another sunny spring day in the forest. Luna decided that she was going to go for and walk for a while perhaps read a book she had been meaning to but never got the chance. It had rained over night and in the early afternoon sun it was a little muggy when Luna sat down against alarge oak tree and pulled out her book to read. It had been a few weeks since Luna had seen either Brico Kalina or that one male from the feilds. Sphere didn't know if it was his lack of respect and morals or his, she admitted, attractiveness but something about him she found intriguing. Even now as she read her book she caught her mind wandering to his eyes. Letting out a huff of air Luna closed her book and put it in her travel bag. Looking up at the great tree she sat against she felt the need to climb. So she did ion her wite shorts peach top and bare feet. She was usually barefooted she didn't really like shoes since they kept her feet from getting a grip on what she was climbing. By the time Lo Lo had made it to the first branch she could hear twigs snapping not too far off in the distance. So she waited not sure if it was a prey item or someone who had gotten lost in the woods.

Marcello did not fancy himself as an artist among the elite, but he did consider himself of an amateur in the affairs of paper and pen. He had just finished writing a little poem in his flat- a charming little story, really, about a wolf and a raven, in which the wolf ultimately slays his brother of the night and adorns himself in the fine downy cloak. There wasn't a real moral to be found in it. That is of course, excepting the moral that one should never, ever, trust a wolf.

On this fine muggy morning in the month of May Marcello had taken the liberty of finding further muse. He wanted direly to draw; there was a small bag about his shoulders with a few supplies for just that reason, but inspiration was a fickle nymph to find. What he did find, however, was a quaint little brook, and he settled himself by it just the same. A tune had settled in his chest not long after. It bubbled up pleasantly in that baritone sound of his.

"I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride. I'm wanted... dead or alive." It seemed appropriate, given his circumstances. Marcello was in a state of self induced probation. After his run in with Alexandria and her dogs, he had taken upon himself to tuck his tail low, settle down a bit. Granted, he hadn't entirely been on good behavior, but he hadn't made a human kill since that poor farmer a few weeks back. That spoke something. It was on his to-do list to avoid the trio of girls that nearly did him in. "That's right, I'm wanted! Dead or alive!" His almost-howl of a bellow reached out, disturbing some birds out of their nests with a rustle of leaves. At least, that was what he thought.

To her dismay and glee, it was the male from the fields. She saw the bag he had and was surprised when he sat beside the brook not fifteen yards away from Luna's tree. She could hear his words about being wanted dead or alive as he wrote in his book. Luna thought that he was just writing that for his poem of a man on the run, the cowboy on the steel horse, till he shouted it again. She wished he hadn't as the birds went crazy and in an attempt to protect herself from their talons beaks and flapping wings she ended up falling from her branch. Her head landed on her travel bag but her back landed on a root. Biting back a scream of pain she moved onto her belly trying to catch her breath and sit up at the same time. Hoping he hadn't seen her 'cause she knew her wouldn't be too thrilled about it.

Something too large to be a bird disturbed his otherwise peaceful thoughts. The man's neck snapped up abruptly, ravaging the foliage for the source of the sound. He was that defensive Marcello now- back bent, muscles taught, lip pulled back ever so slightly to reveal the slight, small bulbs of his teeth, and the shadow of his wolf hung like a vapor over his human skin. To his right something moved by the base of a tree trunk. Marcello shifted and watched it where, much to his surprise, a familiar face detangled itself from the mess of brush.

"You!" It was a surprised growl. He wasn't sure what quite to think about her sudden appearance. His first impression was that he had been followed by quite some time, sent by Alexandria. The second was that she was sent to come and kill him where Kalina was nowhere to be found. The third, and he got this by merely judging the equally surprised look on her face, was that she was just as perplexed as he was. Still, Marcello had a deep seated paranoia of being followed. The man was not entirely convinced that the pretty face before him was innocent.

Marcello stirred into a stand. It felt more comfortable. "What are you doing here?" He dared to turn around quickly, scanning the trees for any other visitors in the area. After doing a 360, his eyes locked on hers again, full of confusion, mistrust, and intrigue. "Who else is here? Are you alone?"

Luna had managed to get to where she was sitting on her heels before the male found her. Her heart was racing and she felt a little self-conscious. When he did a full look around, no doubt to see if she was alone, Luna caught herself admiring him. Standing when he asked if she was alone she braced herself against her tree till She straightened up and looked him in the eye. "Don't worry wolf, I'm alone and I've been here a good forty five minutes before you showed." She said brushing herself off and pulling a few twigs out of her hair. "But did you really have to startle the birds like that, I was comfortable till you shouted like a boar." She asked picking up her travle bag after clearing the leaves and twigs off of it.

He held up a solitary digit after Luna had claimed that she came alone. The man turned and phased in the same motion, a long, canine snout now probing the air, and he used his advanced senses to confirm at least a small bit of truth in her story. There was no one else with them at the moment. His orange eyes watched her until they returned to their normal, inky pallor.

"Okay, I believe you." Marcello said evenly. Then he held up a hand lest he appear too gullible. "But I don't trust you, not yet. You were with that pack that went after me and Kalina. So here's the deal: You don't come after my throat, and I'll be perfectly behaved, alright? Alright, good." Something about the verbal contract relaxed him slightly. Marcello allowed some of the tension to roll off his shoulders. As he did so, his mind was able to free up, and he was able to take in some of the smaller details: the small curve of her nose, a slight rigidness of her own fear, how odd that it was that this character wasn't hostile, even considering their last encounter. Things didn't add up. He was confused, yes, but not as worried, so he accepted her next bit of banter and matched it with his own.

"Startle the birds?" There was that smile of his again. "I'm sorry that you were comfortable, sweetheart, but I was hardly aware that I had an audience. Your boar comments hurts me. After that you should know damn well that I sing better than some sort of animal." It was more like half-animal, for that matter.

Luna stifled a growl when the male put up his finger and shifted to smell the air. Letting out an aggrivated sigh she stood there till he looked back at her with those orange eyes of his. Seeing them go from that burning color to his dark human eyes had her gripping the strap of her bag tightly. Hearing him say that he believed her was almost a slap in the face. "Who ever your running from, I'm not with them. Lets get that clear." She said after he said that as long as she didn't go for his throat that he would behave. That almost had her laughing if she wasn't so tense with the fact that he was obviously a man who didn't care who he killed. Hearing his comment about how he sang better than some animal. Just to get under his skin Luna took in a breath and sang a few cords from tough lover from the movie burlesque hitting every note. In return it echoed and only a few birds took to the air. "That is how you sing messere." She said throwing in a bit of her Italian. She noticed his confusion and just decided not to be afraid and just bring out her more confident side and go with it. Even if he did annoy the hell out of her.

His eyes widened as she tilted her head back and started singing. He recognized the song, vaguely. Marcello had the DVD back home in flat, sandwiched somewhere between Phantom of the Opera and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Even man-killers had to have something to occupy their free time. It made him no less of a man to respect musical theatre.

"It almost sounded like you were trying to show me up," Marcello cooed when she finished. The werewolf stepped closer to her, trying to examine the girl more closely. She was an odd character, this one. He wasn't entirely certain what to think. "But that's just silly. You're pretty good, darling, but nothing compared to the sweet music I can make. You can't touch this." Just when he had come within a few yards the man pulled back again and rested himself against the sturdy trunk of an oak. Marcello crossed his arms over his chest, although he hardly closed himself off from her. As odd as she was, this girl was sweet on the eyes, and Marcello had trouble resisting any woman's charms over the last few months. "So you're not after me- that's good. Then what are you out here for? Bird watching?" He rose an eye brow in question. "Man scouting?"

Again his expressions had her almost laughing with his wide eyes. And again when he said it was like she was trying to show him up. ""You really think you can beat a she wolf at singing?" She asked since wolves were renowned for their howl songs as much as their hunting skills and beauty. Letting out a sigh Luna felt her leg muscles tense when he came closer ready to leap back into her tree if he got too close. This guy was truly a weird one. First time they meet he had killed a human and looked like he would very willingly kill a fellow wolf. But now he was hear making jokes and possible bets. "Reading, well, trying to anyway." She said leaning against her tree till he said man scouting and her eyes narrowed slightly as she raised an eye brow. "Don't flatter yourself nameless." Luna's voice nipped slightly. "I have a question for you by the way. What were you and my brother's fiancée doing that night anyway, aside from hunt humans?"

"I don't think I can beat a she wolf at singing, I know I can." Marcello retorted heartily. It was a moment too late not to flatter himself. He was fairly self assured by this point, although he wasn't entirely certain where this confidence had come from. Perhaps it was the subtle cues, the simple, slight mannerisms that she had that set him so comfortably at ease, loose to the point that he was now off of the defensive. Her questions only humored him further. The werewolf rubbed his chin happily as he mauled the answer over. "Kalina and I, you mean?" That was the only other person she could be talking about. A wry grin stole his lips. "Ha! Wouldn't you like to know?"

Marcello removed himself from his support once more. It was something about the tip of her chin than beckoned him to move closer, and so he did, walking with calm, measured steps, keeping his eyes trained on her face for signs of fear or flinching. She was like an exotic bird, so luminous and fragile looking. He feared that she would take flight at any moment and disappear back up into the trees. The man moved cautiously. He did not want to frighten her off immediately.

Just a few feet away Marcello stopped again. His voice had dropped into a low sing-song, the tease evident. "You would want to know, wouldn't you? Why is that your concern? Would you go off and tell your Brico, if I shared that night's events with you?"

Luna just chuckled and shook her head at his boast of being able to beet her. "You can try." She said shrugging her shoulders as he rubbed his chin as he talked about Kalina. When the male pushed off his tree and moved closer again Luna was tense everywhere but her face. She still saw the killer in his eyes despite his calm alluring demeanor that sent her heart racing. Luckily he stopped a few feet away but she could smell his musky scent his voice when he sang his tease sent chills down her spine. When he finished she pushed off her tree and took a step closer to him letting her singsong voice rise and fall where it should. "He's my little brotha and I don't want to see him hurt. So if you try to steal Kalina from him, we gonna have some problems." When she was done Luna turned and walked over to the brook he had been before sitting down at the edge with her toes in the water trying to make sense of what she was doing with this guy.

"Oh, don't get so riled up," Marcello said, turning his head to follow her retreat. He wasn't sure if he was irritated or entertained by her answer. "I'm not going to be stealing Kalina away from anyone. She's a claimed wolf, I can tell that. So you can go off and tell your "brotha" that he has nothing to worry about." Even as he said it, Marcello knew that it was not a definite promise, all things considered. But for the moment he meant it, and that would have be enough for Luna and her little girl scout troop of werewolves. The rest was up to Kalina.

The werewolf began to follow Luna again, less urgent than before. He sat himself on the opposite end of the brook where his bag was. Using that as a pillow, Marcello lay himself parallel to the smooth, twinkling waters, plucking round pebbles from the banks like polished seeds. One by one, they were tossed in the brook with a slight 'plunk'. "If it really was that important, I could tell you," He said smoothly. "But it would cost you. My starting price is your name. If you want anything else, my price would go up from there."

Luna just sat quietly her knees to her chest and the water trickling over her toes. Stareing at the water she felt her mind wonder, perhaps too far. She pictured herself at the top of a waterfall just looking over the mountains when she felt a small drop of water hit just under her eye. Being brought back when a hand rested on her shoulder in her day dream, Luna looked over at the male laying wit his head on his bag throwing pebbles into the brook. Hearing him say that he would tell her if she told him her name she just chuckled half heartidly. "Let me guise another name to add to your list." It was a low and cold joke but she usually felt that way after her mind went else where. "Forget it, Brico will learn soon enough but what. Exactly iis your name namless?" Luna asked craking her neck slightly to wake herself up as she stretched out her arms. She felt the urg to shift then. To just let her wolf come out and hunt as the scent of rabbit and phesant was carried in the wind.

Marcello's eyes rose at the cold tone she used. It seemed relatively simple for her to switch her mood on a dime. 'Interesting.' He looked down to pick up a small red stone, rolling it between the pads of his fingers thoughtfully. "Don't be cruel, now," The werewolf chided. He tossed the pebble over onto her side so that it landed just beyond her toes. "If you want to make friends then you at least need to act civil. Let me show you."

Marcello rolled up into a stand. He approached her, wading through the brook, fanning his hands out in a gesture of peace. The way that he regarded her was curious, calculating. Marcello knelt down in front of her with the water lapping at his ankles. A sunkissed hand reached out toward Luna, stopping halfway between them. A gesture of peace. "Hello, my name is Marcus," Marcello said slowly. He paused to raise his eye brows and smile over enthusiastically. "Now it's your turn, unless you prefer I just give you a pet name like "sweetheart" or "sugarpie".

She let a smirk spread across her lips when he told her not to be cruel. When he tossed the red pebble onto her side her eyes followed it for a moment before they went back to him. Seeing him move towards her saying that he was gonna show her how to act civil, Luna just chuckled her body tensing slightly as he made his way over to her. She reconized his gesture of peace but she didn't relax much. But when he knelt infront of her stretching a sun cloaked hand out to her, her fetures softened from a stiff board to soft curves of a flower petle. Hearing his name being the same as her little cousin's made her laughe to herself. Accepting his hand when he said it was her turn she just lightly rested her fingers in the palm of his rough hand. "I'm Luna Hunter." She said meeting his gase as she felt her heart beat increase slightly.

It was amazing how even her delicate handshake reminded him of a bird, like soft feathers pressing into his palm instead of fingers. Luna. A night creature then, like an owl. He could see it. "Pleased to meet you, Luna," Marcello greeted with a sugar coated tone, gently shaking her hand. When it had come back down he had taken his arm back, but did not move away. He sat on the ground beside her. Personal space was not in regard. "Now that wasn't so bad, was it? I don't want anymore of this "nameless" business. If we're not going to be enemies, we mind as well not be so stiff." A question entered his eyes. There was a tilt to his head, a yearning to know something. "You don't want to be enemies, right?"

Marcello wanted to test her. Perhaps it was the defiance of her tone, the rigidness of her manners, the odd, torn look in her eyes, like she couldn't decide what to make of him, either. He had yet to get a hold on her demeanor. Yes, he wanted to know exactly what she thought of him, if only to know what he was to think of her. Marcello leaned in toward her. His voice dropped low, a sweet, slow pull, the kind he used when he talked to a victim. "You did see what I was doing that night, you know. My diet is hardly moral. But here you are, no pack around you, and I wonder- do you think I'm all that bad, or is that what your pack is telling you? Do you hate me for it?"

Her heart felt like it was about to burst out of her chest when he took his hand back and sat next to her. She could feel the slightest tingle in her fingers as she also took back her hand letting her hair fall as a wall between his eyes and her cherry red cheeks. Luna felt emmbaressed for the first true time in her life. "No I don't want to be enemies." She said in a voice that was low but shouted how nervous she was. This deilishly hansome man made her feel anxious and shy when normally she was out going and without shame. What was wrong with her? Hearing his voice drop low and feeling him leaning closer to her made her tense even more. So much so that she felt tears stinging her eyes and she had to fight them back as well. His words sent chills down her spine and remeberance helped her to relax some. Enough so that she no longer had to fight the tears that were gone. Meeting his eyes threw a few strands of her hair she wanted to lean closer to him to where her nose almost brushed against his. "As for hating you, you've given me no real reason to. Alexandria has just delt with to many human hunters that didn't care who they killed, be it a gang leader, a school teacher or a mother of two." She explained for her alpha. Luna's heart rate was picking up again as she took in his scent he was so close she slowly moved her hands behind her and scooted just the slightest away from him, not sure if she wanted him to back up or come closer.

"Interesting," He muttered quietly, saying it in the same tone as one who had just witnessed a peculiar experiment. That's what this whole thing was, after all. One big test, throwing in variables at intervals to see if it brought about a different result. So far he had seen her ire and apprehension, her calmness and her smugness, and was interested in the mechanics of how her brain worked in reference to reaction. She did not dislike him for his sins. Quite odd indeed. The main question was now how far he could go before he ventured into the realm of her distaste, if she ever had one to begin with.

"I'm trying to get a feel for you," He admitted frankly after she had scooted away. His countenance was perplexed, but engaged. "You're not like most. Maybe you're shy. Maybe you're frightened." Marcello picked up her hand again and smiled. "I certainly hope you're not frightened. I won't harm you or your little pack, not unless someone gets on my tail first. But I am curious. Perhaps you'll open up a bit more on grounds where you feel comfortable. Say, for example, a coffee shop? It would be my treat. I just have this feeling that there's more to you than what my eyes are seeing." It was a bold move, but one he hoped she would uptake nevertheless, if she was half as curious as he was.

Swallowing hard Luna couldn't keep her eys away from him as he spoke. 'Trying to get a feel for her', did that mean that he didn't know what to think of her like she did him? She looked away for a moment when he suggested that she was shy and or frightened, her hand tingling when he picked it up, and she blushed slightly. Luna couldn't help but laugh softly letting a smile escape her lips as she tilted her head to the side. "Your telling me. You seem like a complete and total ass hole who doesn't care who he hurts." She said in a slightly moking tone feeling her wolf wanting to come out and hunt. Her instincts were quickly taking over her reason and it showed in her eyes and her nails. They were coming to a curved point while her eyes went from blue to brown. "As for your coffe shop proposal, I never feel comfortable anywhere, but I accept." Luna said a slight grin on her face that said there was a catch.

He took great privilege in her sassy jab. He was not a fan of being degraded- goodness no, very few people actually were- but it nonetheless evoked a sense of pride in the shameful werewolf. Marcello splayed the fingers of his free hand over his heart. "Your insult hurts me, Luna," Marcello said, feigning hurt. "I may be a bit biased, but I don't think I'm an ass. Actually, I'd like to say that I'm a rather nice person. You'll learn that, in time."

Then something changed in her again, a stir, more profound than emotion this time, and he hadn't realized that her eyes changed until sharpened nails pressed against the flesh of his palm. Marcello brought his hand back just in case. Yet his eyes looked as if he was deeply pleased, and he maintained that signature half-smirk of his that he reserved for intriguing women. It had almost passed his mind that there was a wolf in there. A good, strong wolf always made women more attractive.

"Tomorrow, then. I'll meet you up town- no packs, no weapons, no nothing. Just two people learning about each other." He didn't say how he knew he'd find her. He just knew that he would. "But first, let's at least get acquainted with our other faces. We only see half of what we really are, and that's never good for impressions."

"It's a date then." She chuckled hiding the disappointment from her face when he let go of her hand. Standing Luna stretched letting out a content sigh feeling the tension in her muscles relax finally. "I thought you would never ask, she's been practically barking in my ear to let her out since she smelt those rabbits." She said cracking her neck and shifting. It came faster to her then most wolves. Mostly because she had spent almost her whole life in a fur coat and tail. Luna had never really gone onto her two legged form till recently. In a sense, this was her true form, the form that she wished she could stay in. Looking up at Marcus the white wolf looked over the man infront of her taking a few steps closer till her snout was an inch from his face. Letting out a huff of air in his face Luna took off across the brook pausing for a moment to see if the male would follow in the hunt.

He had to admit that her wolf form was quite pretty itself. Marcello watched her as she approached; he noted her dark nose, sharp eyes, long, lean legs, the muscle more acquinted to someone who spent more time in their wolf skin as opposed to soft human flesh. Not half bad, really, although Marcello still preferred to believe that he was the most beautiful thing on four legs. The fact that she had drawn so close to him surprised him. The fact that she merely huffed into his face and ran away did not.

"Oh, and I suppose you're going to lead the way?" He said, coming into a stand. A laugh of disbelief shook his chest. "Nice try, but I think I'm the top dog around here. I don't follow." Marcello shifted on the spot. Even then his wolf exuded confidence, using that smooth, self assured gait to pull him closer to Luna, drawing himself up in front of her to block her path. His nose stuck into the air in a haughty sort of fashion. In a way, he hoped that she would chose to challenge his defiance. To test her further, he placed his maw not three inches from the tip of her nose, mocking her previous performance. His orange eyes read. 'Try me.'

Luna just rolled her eyes at the mention of him being top dog, till he blocked her path. Looking into his orange eyes she felt two things, her slight agitation with his haughty attitude, and weakness in her knees. The invitation was too tempting to pass up. Seeing his nose in front of her face she lightly closed her front teeth around his muzzle. She let out a low growl when she released him and licked where her teeth were. Moving to his left side till her head was aligned with his Luna faught the urg to nuzzle that thick mane of black and looked in the direction that the scent of prey came from. Looking back at Marcus she lightly flicked her tail at him before tackling him to where he was pinned on his back her snout not even an inch from from his. As she looked in his wolf eyes it was all to clear that she had questions in her's.

You came in and bumped your head
If not for me then you'd be dead

He wasn't sure what he was expecting, but the small, tender nip of his nose still came as a let down, proving to him that she didn't have the guts to challenge him too fiercely. The smugness that he felt over it was oddly short lived. Marcello brought up a paw to brush over the part of his maw where her teeth had grazed. 'I knew you didn't have it in you.' Perhaps he had been too bold in hoping. Such a flighty looking thing like her probably didn't have a defiant bone in her body, having been beaten down into the position of a pack wolf. It was perhaps a miracle that she had done anything at all. Marcello hid his disappointment. Maybe she would surprise him in the hunt instead, with him leading the-

The unexpected pressure knocked him clear off his feet. There was no time to hide the shock in his canine features, just enough to look up and see a white wolf looming over him, a paw pressing firmly on his chest. For a moment he was completely dumbfounded by the change in attitude. Then, sobering up, Marcello gave a little growl back. He placed a paw against the snowy white of her abdomen and wiggled free from her pin. Once unhindered, Marcello stood up and shook the dirt out of his fur. He licked the fur along her cheek in one quick pass. 'Alright, alright, go ahead and lead the way.'

Letting the wolf up Luna started to move stunned momentarily by the wolf's actions. Coming back she trotted ahead of him following the scent of at least five rabbits.she didn't care if he didn't liked the prey item she felt the need to run. Besides when she hunted rabbit it was the chase she loved rather than the initial killing. Going onto her belly when the scent was strongest and the family of eight was in sight threw the tall grass. She paused for a moment looking at Marcus and motioning for him to go around before returning her gaze to her prey. Feeling her muscles tense and untense as she prepared for the chase, going from her belly to her paws. It was the that a voice no louder than a whisper echoed in her head, 'He's testing you,' it said till Luna shook her head going back on her haunches before lunging baring her fangs and snapping her jaws as she gave chase twisting and Turing with her prey till she got close. Snapping her fangs closed around it's leg she broke it in half and continued running after another not sure where Marcus was as she closed her jaws around the head of her second kill before slowing to a stop.

After she had pinned him down to the ground, he was all submissive, letting her take the reigns without question. It was an odd mix of curiosity and respect. Looping around to the direction Luna had indicated, Marcello settled himself down into a patch of tall grass, resting his stomach on the dirt, his nose just barely poking through. Between two blades of grass, he watched her. There was an odd glow in his eyes- inquisitive, self assured, interested, but slightly distanced, for the sake of observation. He regarded every twitch of muscle in her hackles as she prepared to jump. Indeed, her intuition was right, for he was testing her- although he could not read the thought crossing her head. Marcello wanted to see if her bite was as bad as her bark.

There it was- the warning ripple of muscle. Marcello got ready. Then, bam, like a rocket, she shot out of the grass, sending dirt flying as she ran after her target. The black wolf broke off in the opposite direction. By the end of the ordeal he had only managed to take one rabbit (after throwing it into the air in his frenzy and breaking its spine- accidental, but it worked out). However, he trotted over to finish the rabbit with the broken leg. It didn't get far, hobbling like that. After sinking his teeth around its neck he considered each of them to have one and a half.

The lump of fur and bones was thrown uncerimoniously at Luna's paws. By the time it hit the ground with a dull thump, a man had taken the black wolf's place. His face was smeared with blood. He reached up to wipe it with the back of his hand, grinning. "You're damn fast," Marcello awarded. "Damn fast. I didn't know where you were for half of it. But here, the rabbits can be all yours. I ate just before I came here. Hopefully no one you know," He scooped up another rabbit by its hind legs, walking it over to her. "I'm kidding, I promise. I've been a good boy since our last run in. But really, good job hunting. I'm surprised."

With a still live rabbit in her jaws Luna faced the man finding two dead rabbits at her feet. Even with the kicking prey in her teeth she didn't feel it's claws scratching and digging it's claws into the fur and flesh of her neck. In order to shift she threw her rabbit into the air shifting into a human who's eyes were still that of her wolf self. The rabbit landed with a hard thump and a sickening crack. "Comes from saving my little pup brother from angry mother bears." She joked picking up one of her rabbits using her wolf claws to cut open the chest cavity and took out it's heart. Looking at the man infront of her before eating the bite sized heart. "Tell me, do you just go right into your kill eating just the meat or do you go for the heart and liver first?" She asked swallowing the last of the heart.
