Not only did the bed feel different but also the curtain window was position wrong, this was not her room and she didn’t dare to look down to see if she was wearing anything that wasn’t her own. But when she climbed out of the double bed she saw she still wore the clothes from the night before. The room it self was painted in a dark colour and had a warm carpet laid down. The bed was against the wall opposite the window which was at the moment covered with a cream but heavy curtain, Katie could see that whoever room it was they were pretty tidy, too tidy it was spotless. The room was one matter, now on to the matter of where she was. Once she opened the door she found herself in a familiar corridor, the wall with coats and hooks caused her to frown before she recognized her brother’s apartment, and the sounds from the living room meant someone was still around and Katie hoped it was her brother. But when Katie walked into the living she was both disappointed and glad to see Danny standing in front of a canvas. For a moment Katie was sure Danny was too engrossed with his work to notice her but Danny smiled and seemed to shrug towards her “thought you were going to sleep most of the day, couldn’t wake you on the way up here” Danny had that teasing tone again to which Katie couldn’t help but smile while she walked over to the recliner and sat down, Danny had yet to look at her “where is Jason” Katie asked as Danny took a deep breath “work, left shortly after he got you into bed” Danny smirked at that sentence while Katie lent back in the chair “what time is it” Katie asked as Danny covered the canvas and looked at her. He was wearing the same thing he had been wearing when she first met him “gone twelve,” Danny walked over to her and sat down of the sofa while Katie scratched her head and sighed “Julius is going to let me see the other bodies” Katie told him as Danny nodded and lent back “right, use him for target practice again” Danny joked as Katie shook her head in bemusement then the seriousness set in “the fourth body had its heart removed by a human” Katie said in a sombre voice and she saw Danny staring hard at the ground clenching his fists “you think the other three are in the same way” Danny growled as Katie shrugged and rubbed her eyes “someone’s already suggested black market, and witches”
Katie groaned and sank further back in the chair “I’ll have to go grab my jeep then go home, grab a shower. JR is going to hit the roof when I phone him” Katie said mostly to her self as she got to her feet and started to look for her shoes. The wall under the window was lined with mixed shoes and Katie wondered if her sneakers were mixed in “um, where you put my shoes” Katie asked as she glanced down at Danny who was still clenching his fists. Katie sighed before she moved pass him and walked towards the corridor and straight into what she could only guess was Danny’s room and gave a quick search for her sneakers. On not finding them she turned and walked back into the living room and saw Danny still sitting of the sofa “Danny, were are my shoes” Katie called causing Danny to jerk and turn around “what” he asked distracted “shoes, where are mine” Katie asked again before Danny stood and walked towards the end of the sofa and grabbed Katie’s sneakers and walked over to her “I’ll take you back to your Jeep” Danny said in a neutral voice that shook Katie slightly, but she slowly took her sneakers and shook her head “no, I’ll grab a taxi and collect my Jeep. It’ll be a waste for you” Katie didn’t know why she was so quick to get out of Danny’s company, where as the other night she couldn’t stop thinking about his company. She didn’t even take her eyes off him as she dropped her sneakers and slipped her feet in “I want to come with you to the burial plot, they were my pups” Danny pointed out in a manner that made Katie sure he wasn’t going take no as an answer. But she still would try her best “I’m not going straight to Julius’s, I’m grabbing a shower” Katie wished she hadn’t said that because Danny seemed to perk up and a gentle smile creep back on his face “I’ll wait, I’m sure you have something to occupy my mind” the words were like tiny ants crawling up and down her spine. This guy was bad for her in so many ways and he was unpredictable, he had gone from a man ready to kill for revenge to a man who was making Katie’s skin feel on fire. Though by the look of him, Katie’s mother would love him. “My brother would not like you waiting while I showered” Katie pointed out as she smiled slightly, that distance thing between them was becoming an issue “I don’t bite, not even a nibble” Danny promised while Katie stared into his eyes. But time drew on and Katie was no closer to figuring this case out “I’ll grab my coat, be it on your head what my brother does to you.” Katie was firm in her
warning before she turned and walked back into the corridor, and Danny followed. The trip back to the morgue and the Jeep was quick and the trip back to her apartment was even quicker and once inside Katie buzzed around. Danny simply slumped back in a chair and looked at the notes that scattered Katie’s table. Katie was in the middle of choosing what to wear when there was a knock at the door. Katie was frozen; she was wearing nothing but a towel, she was contemplating not answering but a second knock at the front door and knock at her bedroom door convinced her she had to answer “you want me to answer that for you” Danny had to be loving this. Katie groaned and raced over to the dresser and pulled out a jumper she had borrowed from Mickey and pulled it on throwing the towel over the bed. The jumper reached belong her knees and would have to do until she got dressed, and so she walked over to the door and opened it to see Danny waiting outside. When he saw her, a smile crept on to his face and he straighten himself “is that how you greet all your guests” Danny was defiantly loving this. Katie rushed pass him and skidded to a stop in front of the door and pulled it open to see Marcy standing with her hands clasped behind her back and a smile spread across her face “afternoon, JR wanted to know if your coming in” Marcy declared with a chirp and a glance at Katie’s jumper and wet hair “why didn’t he just call” Katie asked as Marcy tried to peer in but Katie held the door close just enough to shield her apartment from Marcy “he did, left a message” Marcy was sounding to chirper which made Katie grit her teeth “so what are you doing here” Katie asked as Marcy rocked on her heels “I wanted to know what you was up too” Marcy once again tried to look into the apartment but Katie stepped forward and blocked her view further “I’ve been up all night, had to go to the morgue then Julius. I’ve been awake for an hour now and I have to go see Julius again, this is not a good time” Katie was trying her best to get rid of Marcy, who was standing firm “oh, I wait while you get change then I walk you out” Marcy offered as Katie groaned inwardly before smiling “I’ll be a long time and you must have tons of things to do, I don’t want to keep you” Katie politely pointed out as Marcy stuck out her lower lip in thought and shook her head “nope, nothing much. Unless you want me to go, because I thought I heard someone in there with you” Marcy said as she stood on tiptoes “look, I have a lot to do. I’ve got to get dress, and phone Julius then go see him. So how about I catch up with later on, ok. Good,
bye” Katie didn’t wait for a response. She closed the door and spun round to see Danny still watching her from his position against the wall out side her bedroom “don’t say a word” Katie growled before she ran back into her room, slamming the door shut in Danny’s face. Katie had thrown on a pair of jeans and a green turtle neck, she had to hunt for her boots but it took her ten minutes to get dress by which time Danny had sat on the sofa and was leafing through the notes. Katie pulled her hair back into a rough ponytail and then contemplated messing with it a little more for Danny sake but as she came out of the bathroom Danny looked up and smiled “you look nice” he declared causing Katie to redden slightly before she headed over to the phone and snatched up the receiver “what’s the club personal number” Katie asked over her shoulder while Danny turned his upper body round and looked at Katie “what makes you think that Julius has a personal number” Danny questioned as Katie raised an eyebrow and turned round “because Julius is a… how can I put this, a social creature and very privet so he wouldn’t ‘important’ calls being answered by anyone” Katie said as Danny stood “here, let me talk to him” Danny offered as he walked over to her and held his hand out “would that be wise” Katie asked as Danny smiled “trust me, finish getting ready” Danny was so sincere that Katie could have melted and after a few seconds she handed the receiver and walked towards her bedroom. Katie had been bullied into riding with Danny, who she was sure was using his powers on her. They pulled up at the club and was greeted by Bertram and the dark skin man Katie saw at the club in the early hours of the morning “Bertram, where’s Julius” Danny asked as he climbed from the car followed by Katie “he is dealing with mistress Serine. She has trouble with a waitress” Bertram’s German accent was thick once more “if you had spent more time at the club, you would know” Bertram declared with a look at Katie. Danny slammed the door shut causing Bertram to jump, the strange man just smiled “Bertram, I suggest you don’t get on the wrong side of me,” Danny warned before walking around the car and leaning in close to the lower werewolf “again” he added before looking the stranger “mister Hussein, Julius thinks you to be competent to do this” Danny asked as Katie closed the door and stared at Danny while the man Danny had referred to as mister Hussein laughed “my skills are not the issue here Danny
nor is it the reason I am here. It is due to this young lady here” at that point he turned and looked at Katie as did Danny and Bertram “Katie, I like you to meet Mister Jamul Hussein. His a doctor and will be helping you with the autopsy,” Danny introduced as Katie nodded to Jamul who bowed slightly “Miss Ions, I’ve heard things about you from many different packs. But I have yet to hear anything from my own” Jamul said as Katie nodded “haven’t met any werehyenas of yet” Katie pointed out as Jamul grinned “Julius wishes for you to take her down to the plot,” Bertram declared with a edgy tone while Danny gave him a withering look that made Bertram lower his head “fine, did Julius say how these bodies are going to get out of the grave” Danny asked as Bertram looked back at him “Julius has seen to that already, there are men waiting for us and a place where miss Ions and Mister Hussein can look at the bodies” Bertram informed him as Danny nodded and looked around before looking at Katie “you ready” he asked as Katie nodded “ready as I’m going to be” Katie muttered before Jamul stepped forward and opened the door for Katie “Miss Ions” Jamul said as Katie smiled “is Jason inside” Katie asked Bertram who looked at her and raised an eyebrow “he is in side, I doubt you would be able to see him” Bertram hissed causing Katie to glare at him. She was pretty impressed when this look made Bertram flicker his eyes down for a minute before Katie let up “Berty, me and you will have to talk about your attitude problem. Maybe it’s your inability to be around strong women” Katie snipped before she smiled at Jamul and climbed into the car. Jamul hid a smirk as he closed Katie’s door before climbing into the back. Bertram went to walk around the car but Danny stopped him “Katie is my guest, you speak to her like that again and I will make sure you meet with a sticky end. And before you say Julius’s name, he doesn’t give a damn about you, he’ll find someone else lick his boots” Danny warned before he turned and walked around to his side of the car.
