  1. On the Road and at the Angelo Estate Kirstan held her hand out for Cara to take which she did with barely noticeable hesitation. In minutes they were back in the Magnuson's car the small black man, Herschel, driving, Kristen in the front passenger seat of the black Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, with Cara and Kirsten crowded in the back seat. There was silence and it didn't take Cara long to see that they were headed to her and her brothers home and not to the Queens domicile in the city. “How long have you been feeding those precious girls vervain? It was very annoying not to be able to wait for you in comfort. I mean we had to go searching for you and to find with that cur.” Kirstan looked bored. “I don't know probably since they were sent here, it's a long story and not mine,” Cara said looking out her window. She felt Kirstan’s hand on her upper thigh” “Please tell it. We have time.” So as they drove Cara told the story of the house and the deal Marko had made with the family. In short order they were pulling up to the front door and in seconds standing in the doorway. Waiting for the living residents and legal owners to come and let the vampires in. At The Cemetery “Hey!” Karen turned wide eyed and so did Dan, likewise, as a huffing Jack Gant ran through the gate behind and stopped bending over breathing hard. “I know I look fit as a fiddle, but I was dead almost eighty years. That kind of takes the wind out of you. You know?” He raises his head and looks at his great granddaughter, “You weren’t going to leave me, here were you?” DE LA CROIX RESIDENCE Dom moved through the house her footsteps drawing creaks from the old wooden floorboards, lord how this place brought back memories. She closed her eyes and she could hear the radio playing the soft jazz her grandma enjoyed, she could smell the cooking. Dom opened her eyes and saw the house just like it had been when she was four again then she paused, this was the house just like it had been back then. She turned and looked down the stairs Darrik wasn’t there, but she heard movement in the kitchen. “Child, time for you to wash up supper is almost ready!” Darrik watched as the phone downloaded the pictures of the naked girl with the symbols drawn chaotically all over her. He had been hearing Dom walking around the old floors creaking, now he noticed that they had stopped he head up after her. “Hey Dom I got the pictures…” She wasn’t there.
  2. The Cemetery Jack Gant, flesh and blood. breathed in the air and relished the touch of his great grand daughter he held her tight a human connection he had been without for so so many years, only able to watch from the otherside. He looked at Dan satnding awkwardly a few feet away. "Back in there," He gestured with his head not ready to let go, "You'll see a tomb broken open, the bones are in there." Dan looked at the two and then headed past them through the gate and into the Jewish section of the cemetery. It didn't take him long to find the tomb and peering inside he saw several piles of bones at least three skull, he was about to let out a curse when he noticed a small flat box made of tin. Gently he reached in and trying to not disturb the other bones extracted the box. Once he had it outside the tomb he opened it and saw that it contained many small bones like those of a foot. As he gazed at them his hackles rose and he felt eyes on him, but his senses told him that there was no one other than the three of them near. It was time to go. The SUV Kristen smiled and the SUV shook and warm liquid sprayed across the left side of Cara's face and the back of her neck, something heavy about the size of a basket ball hit her side and fell to the floor of the SUV coming to rest against her foot. Cara didn't move she just looked into the startled eyes of Colby Walker, looking up at her from the floor board. Slowly as if time stood still Cara turned her head to the left to find Colby's headless body, blood still pumping from the torn neck, and beyond that grisly sight the coldly beautiful face of Kirsten Magnuson. "What? Am I not deserving of a welcome back as well?"
  3. Jack looked at his great grand daughter then at the dark brooding man with her that he immediately recognized as an Alpha, which made his hackles rise and a low growl resonate deep in his chest, he ran his finger through his hair and stepped up to Karen. Then tentatively he reached out and put his hands on her shoulders. Her eyes nearly popped from their sockets at the shock of his touch. "Oh my god, how is this possible?" He asked as he pulled her into a tight hug!
  4. The sports car pulled to the side of the road about twenty yards away and just sat there. traffic was light, a few cars sped past, then it was just the two. "Maybe we should..." Colby started but stopped when the door on the sports car opened and the black man got out. He stood there for a moment one leg still in the car, he looked up and down the road then took his sunglasses of then the other door opened and a man got out. Young almost looked like a teen, Fair haired average height and build, wearing a light colored linen suit. He stood for a second, took his sunglasses of and grinned. "Oh Fuck, " muttered Colby. Then one by one the doors on the SUV exploded off their hinges and the vampires followed them as if sucked into a black hole. Cara was frozen a black hand of fear gripping her heart. The four vampires lay in a pile each a gaping hole where there hearts had been. But Cara didn't see them she was staring into a pair of pale blue eyes, eyes that belonged to Kristen Magnuson, an Original vampire. "Hello Cara, I have so missed you, and your brother."
  5. In the Cemetery While Dan checked to see if any of the witches still lived Karen had stood and was breathing heavily trying to let the rage go when Dan cursed. "They are all dead." He looked up a Karen with what she took as an accusatory expression but as she started to say something her great grand father stepped up to the gate of the Jewish section and with some hesitancy reached out and opened it. In the SUV Colby looked back as did the watchdogs, all except the driver. "I take it you don't know them," he asked Cara? She shook her head, "No but then I'm new in town, well at least in the century." The driver looked at them in the rear-view, "You want me to keep on to the Angelo house?" Colby cocked his head and looked the question to Cara, leaving it in her ball court.
  6. As Karen began to push herself upright something tugged at her ankle, looking down she realized it wasn't a root she had tripped over it was one of those smokey chains and more were sprouting from the ground.
  7. Karen bristled but nodded then something caught her eye. Back in the Jewish section among the monuments she saw her Great Grandfathers ghost, kneeling and writhing on the ground, held there by smoky chains coming from the ground pulling hims down...
  8. The Cemetery They drove on, the silence interrupted only when Karen gave instructions as to where to turn. Dan knew generally where the cemetery they were going to was but had never actually been there so he followed the directions she gave him. That she had remembered the way after only an afternoon of driving in the city was a testament o her intelligence and Dan was impressed. It took them about thirty minutes to reach the back gate she had been to earlier that day. It was getting late in the day now about the usual dinner time here in the south and the smell of cooking from the nearby residences filled the air, but underlying it was something else. Karen was out of the truck before Dan had killed the engine and taken several steps toward the gate, she was looking around peering through the standing headstones and sepulchers looking for her great grand daddy. Dan got out of the truck and called to Karen, "Hey wait up we have plenty of time." As Dan spoke a smell hit him a scent of rotten flesh and blood. He stopped in his tracks and at the same time Karen caught the smell as well.
  9. THE SIMON MAGUS BURLESQUE AND ABSINTHE BAR With all in agreement the various groups made ready to go about their tasks. Cara and Colby were first to leave, Darrik watched them collect the other four vampire watch dog and leave the bar. As he was turning to head back into the office he saw another person a young black man who was also paying close attention to Colby and company. As the man rose to follow them Darrik mumbled a word an with a gesture gazed out at the auras of the room, the man was a vampire! Back in the office, Dominique was telling the two werewolves where to search for the hidden set of bones as she finished up the bag to hold the set of bones Hawkins had brought. “I know where it is,” growled Karen, “Grab your Bones Dan and Lets get going. I don't want to get caught in the city.” With a glare at Karen Dominique handed the bag to Dan and they left.
  10. Colby nodded at Cara's suggestion, "I'd be happy too. We can take care of my 'bodyguards' while we are at it." He looks over the others. "Hawkins, you and Ms. Gaunt find out from Dominique where the hidden bones are and go get them. Dominique, we need the bones your grandma had will you get them and see if you and Darrik can find the spell or whatever to use the dammed things." He drinks one last shot raising the glass in a silent toast first. "We'll meet back here in the morning if all goes as planned."
  11. Colby swirled the tequila in his glass thinking after a moment he shot the spirit back into his throat and shook his head. “You mean the girl who was kidnapped? It wasn’t real another part of Erica’s ploy designed to get the Queen out of her fortress. That fool witch was just a sap Her witches fooled into doing the deed. As for Mother Waters yeah that’s Her head witch but the only thing I know about the curse was that it was done at Erica’s behest, pretty much for the reasons you said. I can try to find out more but that may be hard if Marko is firmly in her camp now. I know that the bones were divided up between the groups that signed the accords with the Queen. I was there and those,” he points to the box that Dan had brought, “are the ones that went to the Werewolves. Those are what led to the split and ultimately why I left New Orleans. Another set went to the witches and the Regent, actually the first regent since that was the first time all the witches had ever come under one banner, so to speak.” “I didn’t know that. I thought there had always been a regent,” said Dominique giving Colby a inquisitive look. “No, they had been separate, sometimes warring, factions before then, only coming together when the queen took over and they needed to show a unified front. They chose a representative from each coven and then chose the most powerful witch in the city to be the regent. The Queen gave her the bones. Another set was supposedly hidden somewhere in the city. But if we can get the witches bones that will give us two set, She killed one of the Originals with just one bone. Certainly we can kill her with two sets.”
  12. THE SIMON MAGUS BURLESQUE AND ABSINTHE BAR Colby shook his head at Cara's question. "No I can't turn into a wolf anymore but the old blood still holds, she could probably compel me but she never has, those others, including that cunt who turned me, not a chance. i know how this ends for me. She could have made me like her but she didn't, that tells me all I need. As for the bones It all started a long time ago..." Colby relates the story of the Bones that he had told to Marko and Cara the night before. When he finishes he takes another shot of tequila. "She hates them, the originals, I don't know why, she claims to one of them or at least like them and frome what I have seen I believe her. But she is worse than them, I knew the twins they were crazy and fucked up but they would never hurt this city. She'll turn the streets red with blood if she thinks it will get her what she wants. That's why I'm here."
  13. The old former werewolf now vampire leaned forward planting his elbows on the table and he stroked his mustache, "I think you got that reversed, but i don't know for sure I was trying to get her, " He points a Cara, "and her brother on track, as they were being difficult. As for what she is doing now with Marko who the hell knows. But what i do know is if we all do what it is she wants I have a good feeling we are all expendable. And frankly I don't like being expendable. We need them bones, as many of em as we can get." He reaches over and places his hand over Dominiques, "And we need you. With them bones and you we can get rid of the originals when they get here and we can get rid of Erica Lindstrom."
  14. Colby poured another drink and raised it to Dominique, "'bout 98%. She didn't turn me she made one of her thugs do it that big aryan woman out there. But she gave me the choice. Either that or die." He shoots the shot. "I wasn't ready to die quite yet."
  15. Colby once again stares at the young female werewolf then bursts into a gut straining throw your head back laugh. After a moment he gains control and wiping a tear from his eye he shakes his head still chuckling, "Because my dear Miss Gaunt, who the hell do you think my boss is?"
