The rest of that night I stayed
awake thinking about the nightmare that I had experienced. Was it
a sign. Was having a half demon as a partner really that bad? All
that night those types of thoughts rushed around in my head.
Before I know it Tiny rays of sunlight started to come through my
window. I looked over at my alarm clock and realized that it was
going on six o'clock. I forced myself out of bed and then into
the shower. Maybe the water would wash away my hectic
The hot water on my skin felt nice.
I felt at ease for the first time sense I had that 'dream'.
Thirty minutes later I decided that it was about time to get out.
I changed into Black shorts, a deep Blue tee-shirt, and a dark
gray sweat jacket with a pair of black and blue pastry shoes.
Next I loaded my guns and put them in the holster that I wore
around my shoulders, under my jacket. Walking out of my bed room
I quickly and silently made my way down the hall. On my way to
the front door I passed by the living room and noticed that Erik
was still out cold. I paused and decided to write a note so that
way he wouldn't come looking for me.
I took a slip of paper and quickly
jotted down that I was going for a walk and wouldn't be back for
while. I put it on the coffee table and made my way out the
Walking down the road I thought
about where I should go to clear my head. After about 10 Minutes
I had finally made it to the main road that came through this
area. I lived on the outskirts of New York, but even so it was
still more crowed then normal towns would be. Several people
walked the streets and Lots of cars came through, even at this
hour of the morning. People where getting up and heading to
"Hey! Kayla! Wait up!" I stopped and
looked backwards, all I saw was blonde and then I was being
"KAYLA! It's been forever sense I
saw you outside of headquarters!"
"God Becca, Give some warning before
you go and tackle someone."
"oops. Sorry about that." She said
taking a step back and gave me a sheepish smile. She was wearing
a bright blue sun dress, white sandals, and a anklet. Her hair
was up in a messy bun and her sunglasses were on top of her head.
"So what are you doing? Are you going anywhere important?" she
asked, she was smilingbut the look in her eyes told me that if I
said yes I would regret it later.
"No, why do you ask?" I asked hoping
that she wouldn't ask to much of me.
"Great! Just the answer I was hoping
to hear!" She then grabbed my hand and started to drag me down
"Becca! You could at least tell me
what you want first before you go dragging me off to who knows
where!" I said quickening my pace so I was in step with
"O right sorry 'bout that, I wanted
your help with this murder case I was working on." I looked over
and saw that her facial features had become more serious. "I'll
go over the details when we get back to my house. You in?"
"Yeah." I said. Maybe this could be
a chance to get my mind off of the nightmare I had.
After about twenty minutes of
walking we finally arrived at her little town house. It was much
more homey inside then my house. I had only bought the
necessities that I needed to live, but Becca had Beautifully
decorated rooms with family photos lining the walls. She lead me
into her small study towards the back of the house. Thesmall desk
in the middle of the room was covered with papers and books. This
was the only room in the house that wasn't clean. I took a seat
in one of the two chairs that sat in front of the desk and waited
for what she had to say about the case.
"Sorry this place is such a mess."
She said sorting through some papers
"Don't worry about it. So tell me
the details on this case that you dragged me into."
"Well where should I start…" she
paused thinking about what she should say "Well recently there
have been a string of murders all believed to be by the same
person, or should I say 'thing'. Right now we have kept what
happened out of the news so nobody out of the Intelligence
department knows about it. Well that is including you of course."
She said flipping through a file that she had hidden inside her
desk. "All the murders where related in some way. The first one
started out as a man being murdered in is home. It was a pretty
clean murder so the scene wasn't very bloody. We didn't really
see it as a problem. Then came the second murder. This time the
victim was a man also. The only difference is that this time the
scene was much more gruesome. The one behind it was much more
carless this time around. When the third murder came, we noticed
a pattern. All the victims where men that worked late. Either the
Demon follows them home or they pick it up off the street and
invite into their homes for some 'alone time'.
"So basically prostitutes." I said
starting to understand what we were dealing with. "These men are
basically picking up women after a long day of work and taking
them back home as a stress reliever.If you ask me men like that
deserve a horrible death." I said a little disgusted at the
"I agree that there pigs but nobody
deserves a death like that." She said looking up, she looked just
as disgusted as I was. She handed over the file so I could flip
through it and go over anything that she might have
"Well what do you guys plan on doing
about this?" I asked flipping through the papers, not really
taking any time to really stop and read any of it. "I mean how
are we suppose to catch this girl if we don't even know what she
"At the scene we found some hair
that might belong to her. They looked to be black and would go to
about the middle of your back. Does that help any?" She asked
looking kind of hopeful.
"Well it helps to narrow it down,
But do you think you could get me some key information?"
"That depends, what is it that you
"I'll need to know where these men
worked and the routes they would normally take back to their
house, do you think you could do that for me?"
"Of course I can! Who do you think
you're talking to I'm no amateur. Getting that type of
information is easy." She said with her head held high.
"Well then if you're so good do you
think you could get me the bars that they most frequently
"Yup! I'll just have to take a look
in their Banking accounts."
"Good have that to me by tomorrow."
I said starting to get up from the chair.
" Are you crazy!" she said standing
up from her chair and slamming her hands down on the table. "I
hate it when people underestimate me! I could have it in two
hours flat!" She said looking at me like I had just shot down her
"Okay, Okay! Calm yourself!" I said
taking a few steps back "gosh I'm sorry."
"It's okay, why don't you go eat or
something while I search for what you need." She said sitting
back down and putting her laptop on her desk.
"Sure see you in a bit." I said
walking through the door way.
After thinking about all the
information that Rebecca had just given me I realized that there
was one more key component that I would need to win against this
demon, and that my friend is a pawn.
