An innocent gift
Madelyn was born in a small Irish village in 1486. Madelyn was a rare beauty in a town of harsh country women; she was born with one green eye and one blue and deep red hair. From birth Maddy was a disturbed child. She was often tormented with severe headaches and insomnia, often crying out in her dreams and screaming in a language none in the village had ever heard. The villagers would often see her at night wandering the town and mumbling to herself completely naked her long hair flowing down her back. In her earlier years she could be found sitting in her room and talking to the window simply muttering to herself or shouting YES or NO and try as they might her family could not pull her away from her room. This behaviour continued through her childhood into her youth. Madelyn would only leave her room for a few hours at a time. During the time she was away from the window Maddy would be like any other child, happy to join in with her family and play with the other village children. Maddy’s parents kept her behaviour away from the villages as much as they could, explaining her strange disappearances as illness. No one knew what was tormenting Maddy an illness or something darker... w as there something torturing the child? As Maddy reached woman hood her delusions grew worse, her behaviour even more aggressive and bizarre. She would walk into the homes of villagers and scream and rant at their children and try to kill their live stock with her bare hands. Over the course of her youth Maddy was confined to the house often either tied to the bed or allowed in the back yard for short periods. She would be seen wandering in the back yard with a rope attached to her waist, or just sitting in the middle o f the looking up at the moon. The villagers grew more and more afraid of Maddy and when she was 16 the Elders of the village came together and discussed her fate. It was at this time that a wave of religious warfare against women was flowing over the land, women who were sexually open or behaved strangely were being targeted by an army of hunters and magistrates led by the infamous Witches Hammer. The witches hammer was dubbed such after the famous treatise of the same name written to explain the existence of witches and how to recognise and deal with them. The Catholic Church did not support the actions of the Witches Hammer and his quest but they did nothing to control it either.
The Witches Hammer
The Witches Hammer had heard of Maddy and her antics and had descended upon the village with his violent entourage. The Hammer took hold of the Elders council and with his convictions and faith managed to convince the village that Maddy needed to be assessed and that the Hammer and his crew would be able to discover what affected her. The Witches Hammer was a dark and scary man who was secretly aroused by harming the women he tortured, raped and killed. He explained away his arousal by putting it down to the fact that he was doing what he was put on this earth to do, find and kill evil women who had been seduced by the devil. Maddy was bought forth to Hammer and his cronies and dragged through their “tests”. During these tests Maddy was tortured and raped. The devices used were some of the most horrific devices ever created. The Head crusher, she was attached to the chair and her head placed in a vice with a leather strap around it the top of her head the vice was slowly tightened until the leather strap around her head nearly crushing her skull. The Hammer and his team would tighten it too almost crushing then release her and demand she confess to being a witch. They used many similar devices in between beating her and burning her. Maddy never knew such pain but the dementia she suffered simply confirmed the Hammer and the villager’s certainty that she was a witch. The Hammers men would often use her at night one after the other raping and sodomizing her. In the beginning of the weeks of cruel torture Maddy would scream for hours but at the end she was a shell of her former self, her eyes had lost that light and her body was battered and bloody. At the end of three solid weeks of torture and abuse the Hammer emerged from the cells waving a piece of paper that had Maddy’s bloody signature of confession on it.
“The whore has admitted to her crimes and now she will die” hollered the Hammer as he triumphantly dragged Maddy through the village her body and clothes torn and covered in blood her hands covered in the scars from the trial by fire. She was missing one finger on her right hand and the scars were blistered and her skin wrinkled and dead. The villagers gasped as she was dragged past them, none of them realised the extent to which the Hammer and his team had tortured her. Her mother screamed as she passed and feinted. Maddy was dragged to the middle of the village and attached to a post her withered body was tied to a pole as a testament to the power of God against the demons that invade this earth. “This whore is a symbol of what the devil has attempted to do on this earth, to create this creature and have her wreak havoc on the innocent. Man and God have defeated this child of evil and tomorrow she will burn at the stake” The Hammer tied Maddy to the post with her body slumped and she fell forward, the ropes held her to the pole. She hung there like a rag doll her body failing, every minute that she tried to breathe hurt her damaged body. The villagers left the square one by one averting their eyes from their child, hiding the shame of what their actions had done too the girl. Slowly the village square emptied save The Hammer and Maddy. The hammer stood over Maddy’s battered body and leered at her exposed breast fondling it in his hand as the blood ran down her chest from the wounds in her neck. “I broke you hard didn’t I whore Devils Concubines deserve nothing less ” He lent down and whispered into her ear as he slipped himself out ready to take her again, he slammed her body and took her for himself before finishing and spitting on her. Maddy passed out and her body fell forward her head listing to the side slowly blood dripping from the wounds in her body as fell to the floor. A figure crept out of the shadows and watched the blood drip from her body.
The Malkavian Primogen was a strange figure, 6 foot 3 and pale as the moonlight he was dressed in a full suit and large hat. He stood over Maddy’s form with a massive grin on his face, “well my little one aren’t you a sorry site, I have not played with you all these years to have you die on me now”Getting down on one knee he released her hands and lifted her body off the ground carrying her off to the woods nearby. Laying her gently on the ground he stood and took off his coat and rolled up his sleeves. He began to dig in the dirt nearby, flinging the soil aside laughing to himself as he worked. The smile on the man’s face was the most unnerving site to all creatures; it seemed to engulf his face. When he was done digging he bent over Maddy’s body and gently undressed her, taking his handkerchief from his pocket he walked over to the stream and soaked the cloth. Strolling back too Maddy he gently wiped all the blood from her body, with gentle hand he removed all the blood and cleaned her wounds. He frowned at the damage done to her hands and knew that he could not heal it. Fire damage to a human’s skin was one of the few wounds that would not heal when they were turned. “I have grown you in my image my young mistress and it is time for you to dance with me in the Malkavian halls” He bent down over her and sunk his teeth into her neck, pushing the wet auburn hair aside gently with his gloved hands he ripped holes into her neck and began to drain the life force from her body.
Her red black blood dripped down her chest as he drank and her body shuddered as her soul drained away. He lent back after some time and wiped the blood from his mouth gently laying the barely breathing form of the girl on the ground. His teeth glowed in the moonlight, the blood smeared around his lips. Reaching into his jacket pocket he withdrew his blade and sliced across his chest, gently lifting the girl from the ground he led her to the wound and ran his finger across the blood and placed the tip of his finger into her mouth. Maddy stirred as the blood hit her tongue and she started to lap at it like a baby at her mother’s teat. He lifted her head over to his chest and she began to suckle at the blood, forcing him into the earth he relented as her body pushed down on him lapping at the blood flowing from his chest. The image of the naked white girl laying on the vampire her hair flowing around them was one to behold. After a time he pushed her gently off him, she growled as he did but he was stronger than she and he managed to force her off him and heal his chest. The pale naked girl kneeled on the earth blood flowing down her chest and stomach; she was panting and staring at his wound, watching it heal with a sneer on her face and a gleam in her eyes. He returned her gaze and watched her as her body slowly began to take the vampire blood. Her body shuddered and lurched forward, she fell onto the soil and let out a scream of pain before she fainted. He lifted her up and laid her in the pit he had created. Under the bright flood of light from the full moon she seemed to glow the light reflecting off her naked body. As the night progressed her body slowly died with agonizing pain as it shut down, the strong Malkavian blood swept through her body, flowing through her, shutting down her organs and replacing her blood with the blood of an ancient clan of sadistic and deranged vampires.....
Maddy stirred in the ground a few hours later, her sire sat cross legged next to her that smile seemed to gleam in the light. How are you feeling little one? He asked as he stood up and offered her his hand. She grasped it and he lifted her up out of the hole. She stared at him for what seemed to be an eternity her eyes tinged with blood that flowed around the whites then seemed to settle as her normal colour came back only the colour seemed almost to gleam. Her body was fully healed from the wounds of the torture save her hands. Wounds from fire could not be healed with vampire blood only repaired, her hands were scarred, her middle finger from her right hand missing. Instead of answering she embraced him her naked white body clung to his and he wrapped his arms around her and held her close. Reaching down too his bag he pulled out a white lacey gown and lifted it over her slipping it onto her and doing up the buttons then pulling out a pair of deep green satin gloves and slipped them over her wounded hands he lifted them to his lips and kissed them gently before leaning into her ear and whispering. Welcome Princess, your life now begins. Grasping her hand he led her out of the forest and into the village the two seemed to glow as they strolled through the town, Maddy arched her neck looking at everything with new eyes, the world was so much brighter now that she was reborn. I always knew you would save me she breathed as she looked into his deep red eyes. He simply smiled and tightened his grip on her hand as he led her to their destination. Standing at the pole that had held her so many hours ago he released her hand and stood with his arms at his side. Maddy could feel a rush of power from him as he sent out his power to the villagers, calling too them. One by one the villagers crept into the main square, clad only in their nightshirts with a kind of glazed expression on their faces one by one they came and sat at his feet. You damaged this child now you must pay for your sins, the sins you made her suffer for. He walked to the head of the village, the grandest house in town and entered. A few minutes later a scream was heard and He strolled out with the Hammer being dragged behind him by his hair. The Hammer was kicking and screaming, desperately pushing his feet into the ground trying to stop being dragged along, his attempts feeble. Throwing him on the ground in front of the villagers, Maddy’s Sire smiled over at her as she stood their frowning at the man who had destroyed her body. Feed little one He gestured to her. Maddy obeyed with fervour and leapt upon the Hammer slicing open his throat and draining his blood almost too death. Her sire bent down and pulled her off him after some time and she growled at him once again. Obey me little one. She dropped immediately and fell to the floor panting. He lifted her up and again wiped the blood off of her face and chest, brushing her hair aside he smiled at her and nodded. Turning to the villagers he spoke too them for the last time. "You had a treasure in this child but you ignored her, you punished her and you shall be punished"
The Hammer lay on the floor clutching his neck glaring at the tall man in front of him fear screaming thorough his face. Suddenly the villagers stirred and raised standing around the hammer as he yelled at them to save him. The Sire raised his hand and dropped it to his side. Signalled the villagers rushed upon the hammer tearing at his flesh with their teeth and hands, climbing upon him like rats on meat. His screams echoed around the village seemed to last a lifetime until finally with a faint gurgle he was silent. Shall we my dear Maddy’s sire took her hand again as she was enthralled by the violence in front of her. She looked into his eyes and sighed. He led her out of the village and into her new life as the prodigy of the Malkavian primogen. A redhead goddess was born anew.
