By the time the limo reached Moon Wonderers it was 05:45 and Katie was fighting sleep. Once she saw Julius she was going home by a taxi and pick her car up when she didn’t have to force her eyelids open. Erick was gone by now and the main room and bar was empty and had been cleared away. Bertram swept through the empty entertainment room like he owned it, though Katie suspected that if Julius was to come in, Katie had seen it before. Always cower before the leading man, way of the pack. Bertram stopped at a door next to the bar and knocked on it rapidly, when he stepped aside Katie could see that the large steel door had a bolt, on the inside and figured that someone must has locked up for the night. A few moments later there was a loud clanging noise, which must have sounded louder due to the fact that the large room was empty, and then the heavy door swung towards them, the spot where Bertram had knocked from and Erick now stood holding the door open, he nodded to Bertram who swept pass him then to Katie who could do nothing but follow like a lead weight. She heard the door slam shut and the bolt slide into place before Erick followed them, the door led to a corridor with five other wooden doors. Two on the left and three on the right, Katie saw that the last door the left was open as was the last door on the right. Bertram led Katie pass the first set of doors and when they reached the second lot and Katie saw a dark man sitting at a long table with a glass in front of him. He wore a light cream suit and hat and when he glanced up he smiled at Katie and nodded before someone closed the door sharply causing Katie to watch Bertram stop outside the third door “Julius is inside, may I have your gun” he said it with such smoothness that Katie almost handed her gun and any thing else he wanted over. But a sudden check of herself stopped Katie reaching for her magnum “I’m not going to use it” Katie assured as Erick stopped beside Bertram as though giving him some sort of support “well then you will not need it” Bertram pointed out as he smiled smoothly while Erick flickered his nervous eyes from Bertram then to Katie. He was either seizing up them both or he was worried about getting in the middle of them both. But Katie was too tired to fight with this low level werewolf and so with some haste she reached into her pocket and dragged out her magnum. She hated to see the gun being held by any one else who isn’t her and when Bertram handed the weapon over to Erick Katie felt as though a piece of her was being taking away. She guessed it was some how like when a mother watches her baby being held by someone else. Then Erick walked back down the corridor and opened one of the close doors behind Katie, Bertram was still smiling when he indicated to the room “would you care for a drink” Bertram was all smarmy but Katie still held her ground “bite me” she responded before stomping into the room and seeing Julius sitting at a makeshift long dinner table. Behind it was a stage with a Mic and stereos in one corner, but Katie guessed that it was used as a dinning hall tonight due to the fact that the spot lights were not on the stage but instead on the tables. Julius was almost as tall as Jason, but you could see the inches when they stood together (which was a rare occasion) but Julius had a few more pounds in muscles on Jason and of course could take Jason down. Julius had steel like eyes that held a spark at the centre, his strawberry blonde hair spilt well over his board shoulder and near enough half way down his back, his goatee bread was manically shaped and seemed to blend in smoothly with his silken like skin. Katie had on more then one occasion been attracted to Julius but she had reminded her self that every Alpha Male of any pack had this sort of power, which made Katie think back to Danny. Had he used his power over Katie? If he had Katie didn’t mind at this moment, hell she wouldn’t mind him dragging her off to his lair. But at this moment she was facing an Alpha male sitting in a Dark suit with a white Vneck shirt and dusty boots and a glass with liquid very much like whiskey in his hand. He smiled very much like the cat that had got the cream, this was a smile most predators had before going in for a kill “Katie Ions, you’ve been talked about a lot lately” Julius held a southern accent and was very smooth talking, just like Bertram outside. But Katie had just become too tired to allow anything bother her any more and Julius was a definite bother “Julius do you know what time it is” Katie allowed her self one last ounce of strength to grab a spare chair and slump in to, still staring at Julius, though her eye lids were growing extremely heavy. Julius shifted himself and lent his elbows on the table before him “why my darling I think it’s nearing six in the morning, why, are you tired” Julius had an unusual purr to his voice to which Katie could only give him a half withering look that wouldn’t scare a mouse “I need to see the other three bodies” Katie ordered in a tone that caused Julius to sit up. No one dare speak to Julius in such a manner, and if and when Katie is in her right frame of mind again she will blame the lack of sleep but at the moment she could care less about Julius. He could take his wounded pride and laid down “you say that like an order my dear, I believe I acquired your service and I pay for your time. Maybe you would like to rephrase your requests” Julius would have made for a great lawyer, too bad his was a animal by nature and three nights out of the month he was an animal. Katie shifted and yawned into her hand before looking back at Julius “I just came from Steven Clifton autopsy. Because you didn’t get to the body first the police department is looking into the case, but we did find something interesting” Katie yawned again before Julius sat forward and frowned “what” Julius had lost all purr and actually sounded concerned “Steven’s heart was removed cleanly, by a human. But he was killed by a snapped neck by a animal” Katie was amazed to see the colour drain from Julius face “I need to know if the other werewolves presented with the same wounds” Katie asked in a better tone to suit Julius whose finger nails seemed to have grown a few inches and was now clawing at the table top “their in my personal plot, Bertram will take you to them” “now” Katie couldn’t help but exclaim causing Julius to give a look of shock “you want to know if the pups had their hearts ripped out cleanly or not” Julius was a little too snippy for Katie’s liking but she wasn’t in the position to voice her views on being spoken too in a manner like that. Katie yawned again before holding her eyes wide open “I must be softening to your, phone the club in the morning and we’ll get the bodies out of the ground” Julius declared as Katie perked up, the prospect of sleep was too appealing for her, so she simply nodded and stood causing Julius to raise an eyebrow “are we finished now?” it wasn’t a question more of a statement, and Katie couldn’t resist the last snipe “you know my aim has gotten better, would you like to see” Julius pulled his cuffs down causing Katie to smile “I’ll give you a call in the morning, thank you Julius” Katie made a scene of turning and limping as best she could towards the door. Bertram stood stiffly at the door and used a steely gaze on Katie but a signal from Julius meant Katie could leave, which she did and stood out in the corridor “if you would be so kind as to return my gun” Katie wanted to sound sweet but to her it was just sounds at the moment. Erick slowly stood beside them and cleared his throat “Katie, someone’s waiting outside for you” Erick looked down as though he had been ordered to give her that message and that massage alone. For Bertram furred his brow “Erick, you are no longer allowed to let anyone in the club with out Julius consent,” Bertram pointed out as Erick nodded before Bertram smirked “or Serine’s” Bertram seemed please to remind the werewolf of that fact, Katie saw the small scowl on Erick’s face which he had to cover up quickly because Bertram was considered more important “thank you Erick, once old Berty gives me back my gun I’ll leave” Katie saw how much Bertram hated the name Berty, which she had guess by the way he held himself and she had enjoyed that little snipe. But of course Bertram didn’t because he looked at Erick and nodded “get her gun, follow him” his German accent seemed to grow heavy with each word before he turned on his heel and stormed into the room Katie had left Julius in and slammed the door shut. Katie smiled while she followed Erick “you shouldn’t get their backs up Katie” Erick wasn’t as smooth talking as the rest of the pack but he did have a heart, which brought Katie back to her problem, could she get away with looking at the three other bodies with out Wilbur ever finding out.
She didn’t even notice Erick slipping into the room because the next thing she knew was Erick handing the magnum back and unlocking the door “Erick, you way too nice to be a werewolf” most of that was being drawled out in a sleepy state as Katie felt her eye lids lowering in surrender to sleep. Erick guided her out and sighed “yeah Katie, and your too damn good to be messing with Julius” Erick mumbled as he closed the door “could you call me a taxi” Katie asked not seeing the person sitting a table “don’t worry” Danny stood and walked over to them. Katie looked at Danny and saw that he was wrapped up warm with a thick brown jacket and jeans, Katie was sure he was getting yummier but at the moment she was on autopilot “where’s Jason” Katie mumbled while Erick looked at Danny who nodded. Erick then left them and headed towards the bar “Jason wouldn’t be able to get in after dark, and by that detectives message you sounded as though you had been kidnapped” Danny sounded concerned, but Katie could only muster enough strength to shove the gun away (after two attempts) “can you drive me to my car” Katie asked as Danny started to move her towards the door “no” he declared firmly as Katie shook her head while passing through the archway “ok, take me home” Katie ordered as the icy cold air hit her hard and a shiver rack her body. Though Danny didn’t let her arm go while he steered her towards a dark car sitting in front of the club “Jason wants to see you, told me I had to bring you back” Danny informed her as he opened the passage side door and near enough shoved her in and slammed the door shut. Katie had to push her self up in order to keep her self awake but even when Danny climbed in and started the car Katie could only see through silhouette and by the time the car was moving Katie had mumbled something that sounded like
‘ok’ before falling into darkness.
