Jackson stopped when he felt a demon hunter as he can feel the energy rolling off of him and then he heard a demon hunter say with coldness in his voice "You better start exposing why your eyes in my house, before I send you back to hell.”
Then Jackson knew there was more than just one person in the hall and he slipped into the shadows as if he was part of it and was covered by darkness and he jumps up the stairs with stealth then he felt as one of his legs paralyzed, immediately he knew the floor was trapped then he stopped and lighted a candle to reveal himself to them but they could only see this face unless they had excellent eyesight
“ umbra metrias.” Selene muttered granting everyone without natural vision, the ability to see through the darkness that the stranger had created. The witch had a ball of shadows in her hand.
Chris’ heart fluttered at being referred to as Alex’s boyfriend, but he quickly returned to being serious. “ You can forget about moving around here anyway.” Chris said quietly. “ my wards won’t allow you to escape while you still have something from my family on your person...or more accurately , in you,” he said with a small smirk.
“ oh I get it! The poison you coated those spikes in? It’s hale family property?” The farm girl asked as if she’d solved a murder mystery level puzzle.
Chris then turned the lights back on. “ you’re going to answer every question I ask, with honesty, or your brain will be splattered on that wall beforehand you can even blink.” He said , as he edged forward.

"I'm Alexander. Are you a hunter?" he hissed, his old hatred burning ever so brightly inside of him. Other hunters were different than Chris. Other hunters were dangerous. However, he did have suspiciously strong magic for a hunter... perhaps he was a demon.
Chris rolled his eyes. “ you’re not as string as you seem inclined to believe. I’ve killed full demons ten times your age. Now get to the point of why you saw fit to break into my home. Answer quickly, and I will dispatch you smoothly.”
Eliza looked shocked to hear Chris speak so harshly as Selene slowly began to put some harmful intent into her flames.
Eliza shook out her surprise.
Chris moved closer. “ if you don’t feel inclined to answer. Then I’ll paralyse you, and we’ll come back to you once the house has been cleared out,” he said anger evident in his voice,
Then Eliza realised something. They were in a women’s room. There were Photos of Chris as a child. Flowers were everywhere. But there were no signs of someone aging lived there in months.
Then she connected the dots, this was the room of the women whod basically raised Chris,
