Five days. It had been five whole days since Earth had been saved by the baleful forces wishing to invade it, and cause unimaginable harm. So while the forces that had saved Earth and humanity itself from capture were in themselves inhuman, it was generally accepted that they had saved them, no matter what, and as such, it was granted that the alien species, the Kindred, were allowed to choose any males that took their fancy. While it had been originally met with outcry from humans, it was hard to argue against it - for one thing, the chances of being taken were slim, with the amount of men on Earth, and secondly, how could anyone really disagree to the demands when they had saved them from the threat of invasion - and it was known that the Scourge were beings intent on torturous activities, and far from being benevolent things. It followed then that the days that passed since the saving were filled with the introduction of the Kindred on the planet, searching for 'brides' to take onto the Mothership. While chances may have been slim, some men were inevitably taken, and that was the reality for many of them, with the Kindred all searching for the same shared desire - to lay eyes on the man that would fulfil those desires. That desire was one that the renowned 'Beast' was searching to fill, the young Kindred currently leant against the metal of his species' ship. He had been there for a while now, simply taking in life on Earth, and ultimately, many of his kind arriving back with human men on their arm. Most were reluctant to leave with them, of course, and Alexei could see that on the humans' expressions, but some, surprisingly, were taken with the idea of actually venturing into a 'spaceship' and becoming a bride. For Alexei, humans were similar somewhat in appearance, and the thought of making one his bride was something he desperately wanted at this point. He had suffered torture at the hands of the Scourge, narrowly avoided death, and this was a prize in his eyes, and one he felt he deserved. Yet, here he was, currently alone and without any such luck. He had searched, sure, but no one had really caught his eye as such - he was under the impression that he ought to be filled with a sudden outburst of emotion when clapping eyes on the man that was destined to be his. It was made more difficult for him, in some cases. He was nicknamed 'Beast', for crying out loud, and with good reason. His appearance, while typical of a Kindred, was somewhat different too - large, uniquely designed horns grew from his head, and shoulder blades, far different in appearance than his fellow men. The nickname both came from that, and Alexei's tendencies to grow angry. He didn't have an anger problem, far from it, but his temper was something he struggled to control, and with his angry outbursts, the nickname had seemed fitting. Sighing heavily to himself, particularly when he wasn't a fan of the weather this planet held, he miserably kicked a stone out of his path as he ventured down the path again. He was growing slightly desperate at this point. He had held hope out to find a boy; a male he felt romantic interest for in the first initial meeting, a burning desire of sorts, but no such feeling had been felt, and honestly? He did feel that perhaps he was being too fussy... He gave himself the deadline of a week, and with only two days left, he was ready to just grab anyone and hoist him back to be his bride, regardless of how he felt about him.
