Jo followed James out to the street and without him having to indicate to her which car was his, she went right to it.

"You know, Mr. Burke, you really should keep your car locked at all times," she said, opening the passenger door to get in. "'N-Reg' or not, it could still be an attractive target to yobish teen joy riders."

She sat down gracefully in the seat, but not before removing a bit of paper from the seat first. She sighed. "No wonder you charge a £500 retainer," she commented, not meanly, just matter-of-factly. "All these parking tickets you're accumulating...." She folded the paper, then placed it inside the glove box along with a score of similar looking papers.

She put on her seatbelt, then folded her hands neatly across her bag which sat on her lap. "So, Mr. Burke, this 'crypt' we're going to," she started. "Is it one of those gothic-styled 'underworld club' of sorts? A place where the clientèle attempt to scare 'normal' people away from?"

“Something like that.” James replied with a smirk and being intentionally coy with his answer.

The drive didn’t take long due to the already late hour of the day and that they used quiet roads anyway. They drove towards the River themes, more specifically an area that was filled with abandoned warehouses that for one reason or another had not be rejuvenated in one of the governments plans. The car drove between the large buildings near an old abandoned dock until it reached one with a red roof.

“Well we’re here.” James informed as he turned off the engine. “Now we’ll wait for the others.”

After parking his motorbike elsewhere (away from the Crypt), Claude waited until he saw the company car drive past before following it through the maze of warehouses. The car was much faster than he was and soon disappeared leaving Claude to navigate to the Crypt using memory. It was a quick trek and soon enough, he turned a corner to see James standing in front of the Third Eye mobile. "I hope this job pays well," Claude said aloud as he walked towards his companions, "God knows our dislike for this place."


Make love, not toast.

The van slid around the corner, heading along the warehouses like a drunken bear on steroids. Peter cursed. The vehicle was about as easy to drive and maneuverable as a horse that had been heavily dosed with LSD.

That silver concoction had sort of put drugs on his mind.

He slammed the brakes, sending the lumbering monstrosity into a skid across asphalt, bumping it's way through potholes before it finally halted. "Well, that was fun. I always hated this place, somebody hexed the bloody road."

Claude, James, and their client were already out front. He popped the door, briefly wondering what to do with the other two. He shrugged. They were grown women, they could decide. He left his shotgun in the van and got out.

"We're ready, boss, although Dania isn't looking too good."

Dania shot Peter a withering glare. "How do you think you would feel if you got injected with something that's got even the slightest bit of the thing you're allergic to the most tucked away in it?"

She offered a similar look to James and told him, "Well, I'm here. That's what you wanted, yes?" Her eyes fell on Jo and she cocked her head slightly.

"You seem somewhat familiar," she began. And then it hit her, and a look of horror flooded her face. "Oh no... they didn't..." She shot an 'if you weren't my boss, I'd kill you' glare at James and then held out her hand in Jo's direction.

"Daniela Santos," she introduced herself. "Call me Dania. Despite what you likely saw earlier today, I am not a monster at all times. Just... the full moon tends to have that sort of negative affect." She paused for a moment before offering the briefest of explanations, "Werewolf... well, half-Werewolf."

Kate hopped out of the van and walked up to everyone. "Protection spells are ready boss. They should prevent anyone from prying into our thoughts, but I can't guarantee it will protect us from harm."

Her answer sounded unsatisfied. She wasn't the best at protection spells and had picked up most of her latest spells out of dire need. Her best unfortunately took a lot out of her and she hoped she wouldn't have to exert herself to much tonight. She was already tired and hungry from this morning's events in the catacombs.

“That should be fine.” James reassured the Witch. “We’re just here to talk to an old friend.” He continued with a mocking smile.

James walked over to the door into the warehouse and opened it, through the door was a large room with plain walls. At the far wall was another door with two large men either side of it, to the left of the entrance was a coat check girl standing behind a desk and in front of the cloakroom.

James led the group over to the table and smiled at the girl behind it as he looked up at a poster on the wall. It was a forbidden goods poster, things that weren’t allowed in the Necro crypt. The first few weren’t too odd Guns and Knives, but then their were pictures of crucifixes, wooden stakes and old medieval axes. James undid his holster and placed it with his gun on the desk and then proceed to pull Silver and wooden stakes out of his pockets and place them next to hit.

“Your coat Sir.” The young girl said revealing to long fang like teeth when her mouth opened.

“We won’t be here long.” He replied as he moved to the side so the rest of the group could check their Guns, Swords and other weapons.

Peter's fists tightened as the girl's mouth opened, revealing her fangs. Vampires. He hated Vampires. Why did it have to be Vampires?

In hindsight, it wasn't that surprising - this was probably the biggest collection of monsters this side of the gates into Dis, but that didn't make him any less uncomfortable with it.

"If you don't mind, boss, I'd like to stay with the Van. I'm not exactly comfortable walking into a den of vipers without my guns."

He'd check his weapons if the Boss told him, but any supernatural creature could beat him to death with all the effort that he needed to peel an orange. Not exactly a prospect he was looking forward to dealing with, and there were probably some creatures in here that would relish killing him.

"Do what you want." James replied to the group’s muscle. "But you'll miss all the fun." He once again grinned his mocking smile.

The Necro Crypt was a regular place to meet one of James' dark underground contacts, the guy actually ran the place and as the Crypt was a place the Darks tended to congregate he knew the goings on. Unfortunately Peter’s fears weren’t unfounded as lots of the darks inside the warehouse had reasons to hate the group including the man they came to see.

"Thanks, boss."

Places like this were Peter's fears made manifest. A lone Vampire was a terrible enemy. Dozens of Vampires, Werewolves, some particularly degenerate humans, and worse horrors were suicide given shape. Given one day in charge of Britain's armed forces, and he'd have dropped a nuke on it without a second thought.

Too bad nobody was asking him.

He headed out to the van and sat down, cradling his shotgun and loading up his Dragon's Breath. Jericho for the Humans, Revolver for the Werewolves, and Shotgun for the Vampires. It was like a second birthday for him.

Jo cocked a crooked eyebrow at the fanged girl, then shook her head dismissively. "Kids and their quest to be different," she muttered under her breath, thinking that the girl could have spent her money more wisely than on Gothic-Vamp dental implants.

She started to follow James, but then the girl nodded at her bag. "Your bag, ma'am? if you're taking it inside, I have to search it."

"Search it? Search it for what?"

The girl nodded nonchalantly over her shoulder to the poster depicting the club's contraband on the wall behind her.

"Oh, for goodness sake...," Jo complained. She compliantly set her large handbag on the counter, but when the girl went to search it, Jo smacked her hand. "I'll take out the contents myself, thank you very much," she said rather irritably as she opened up her bag. "It's degrading enough to have a stranger examine my personal belongings just to gain entry into an establishment that hides itself away in a warehouse."

She took out her wallet, a comb, a small notepad, a mobile phone, a pencil, and a pack of peppermint gum. Next came a cosmetic powder compact, a tube of mascara, a lipstick, a travel-size can of hairspray, another pencil with several elastic hair bands wrapped around it, and a small box of tissues. A bottle of vitamin supplements followed, then a ruler, some wax crayons, another pencil, a pen, a handful of paper clips, an oatmeal snack bar, a few hard mints wrapped in cellophane, a small plastic doll with scraggly blonde hair, and then a utility bill, and a souvenir lighter of the London Eye boasting it was 135m off the ground.

"I've got feminine 'supplies' in the small zippered pocket," Jo said to the girl, as she rummaged deeper into the purse, "but as a fellow female, I suppose you already know what they look like?"

The girl sighed, and just waved her arm dismissively over the innocuous items on the table. "Just... go in."

Jo repacked her bag, and went to stand by James. "Do you have to do this every single time you come here?"

"No, we leave our bags in the car, that way we don't have to pull do a Merry Poppins and pull astonishing amount of crap," Claude replied, his tone of voice and accent suggested to his partner that his alter ego, Edward was in control of the body. He then helped himself to the Oatmeal snack bar. He unwrapped the foil cover and took a bite, munching away as the vampire the felt him up as she searched for any signs of weaponry. He smiled cheekily as the woman began to check his jacket pockets and chest. Once he was deemed cleaned, he turned to Jo and said, "Come on Supernanny, time to go into the place sunlight forgot."

The Vampire girl stared at Dania for a moment as the half-Werewolf unstrapped her sword from her back. The sword was followed by her gun, and then she moved forward, but the girl stopped her.

"Werewolves get... unfriendly this time of month," the girl said. "What guarantee do you have that..."

"Silver/narc injection, thank the boss," Dania interrupted with a low growl. The Vampire girl winced.

"I hear that hurts like hell 'till it wears off," she observed. Dania nodded curtly and the girl waved her past with a, "Just be careful... that stuff'll kill ya."

Kate walked up to the vampire next. She pulled out her small pocket knife and set it down in the vampires hand. After the pat down, they vampire girl eyed her a bit as if to say 'that's it?' Kate playfully nipped at her making a biting sound with her teeth. The vamp rolled her eyes and allowed her to pass.

James walked over to the door that the two large men stood by, although they appeared human James knew they were far from it. Both men looked down at James with emotionless faces and then one went to open the door for the investigators and their clients to step through.

“Don’t cause trouble Burke.” One of the large men threatened.

“That’s up to your boss.” James replied obviously un-phased by the large mans death.

The large man just snarled and then preceded with open the door. As the door cracked open the sound of loud alternative rock music filled the room. James stepped through the doorway into the even larger room within the warehouse, it was a nightclub with a large dance floor a stage currently hosting a live band playing the alternative rock music. Across one wall was a large bar that served everything from champagne to virgin blood, and small tables where spread out around it.

The Club was filled with all kinds of Darks, mostly vampires but other demons also littered the room, ones that couldn’t pass for human, including an 8’ red demon with goat horns and a scaly green creature that had a nose. They were doing everything from dancing by the stage to drinking blood from a champagne glass.

To someone who had never seen this kind of place before it would have probably shock and scared them, but for James this was normal, he saw places like this all the time.

“Say what you like about Vamps, they always have great live music.” James shouted over the loud noise. He then began to walk forward into the crowd of Darks, he pushed through presuming the rest would manage to keep up with him.

Soon they pushed through the crowd and came to an area that was raised over the dance floor where there was a large couch with a single man surrounded by scantily dressed women and some more large bodyguards. James walked up to the table in front of the man and stood there looking down at him.

“Well if it isn’t Jimmy one eye Burke.” The Man Said with a sinister grin that showed off his vampire fangs.

“We’re here for information Azule.” James replied.

“That’s the only reason you come here.” The vampire replied. “Maybe you should have a drink, we serve the best AB negative in all London.”

“Just the info today.” The PI demanded. “A Little girl went missing on London eye, magic was most probably involved, what do you know?”

“I know nothing about these disappearing girls.” Azule stated.

“Girls?” James raised an eyebrow. “I only mentioned one.”

((I'll yetyou guys get your 2 cents in, well pense as it is i the UK.))

Jo was standing close beside James, mainly because the music was playing so loud that she couldn't hear him otherwise, but also because the place he had brought her to was, in a word, bizarre.

She had been perfectly content to stand back and let James and his team do their jobs. After all, they were the professionals and this was their 'territory,' so to speak. But when she heard the man mention 'girls' in plural, the protective mother in her took control.

"There are other girls missing?" she said incredulously. Without caring that the man sitting at the table in front of her could possibly be dangerous, she stepped forward, elbowing one of his scantily clad women aside. "So, what, there's some sort of conspiracy thing going on here? Kidnapping little girls? I'm sure the press would have a field day with that story!" She poked a finger into Azule's chest. "Young man, you tell Mr. Burke everything you know about these missing girls!" Poke. "Right!" Poke. "This!" Poke. "Instant!"

Azule's eyes widened and he started to say something, but Jo cut him off. "And, no, I don't particularly care how inferior you think I am, or how common my A-positive blood makes me, and, yes, it was actually my idea to tag along with Mr. Burke and come to this dreadfully decorated place. But everyone in the world knows that regardless of species, you never, ever mess with an angry mum!"

Her eyes narrowed as Azule stared at her with utter surprise. "Now, I know you have better things to do," she continued, "so the sooner you spill the beans, the sooner 'supernanny' will get out of your face, and I won't even have to show you my sharpened, yellow, but slightly gnawed at one end, Staedtler HB."

She crossed her arms over her chest and her foot began to tap the floor, but it wasn't in tune to the music. No, it was 'mom rhythm' as she waited impatiently for his response.

“As I said, I know nothing.” The Vampire repeated himself looking incredibly annoyed.

“Do we have to do this?” James Asked

“Do What?”

“The thing we always do. We ask you a question, you don’t answer, we ask you again, you get aggressive, we threaten you, you tell… Let’s skip it and just tell me.” James Explained.

“I don’t know anything, now get out of my club.” Azule demanded.

“Here we go again.” James sighed. “As well as the mother factor we got going for us, to my right is a Hybrid werewolf on a full moon, yeah she’s dosed but her strength and aggression are more than enough to kill guy one, to my left is a witch, who can set alight guy two.” James took a deep breath. “As for you.” The investigator reached into his sleeve and pulled out a vile of clear liquid. “Guess what your girl outside forgot to remove.”

Azule sighed angrily as he sat up and looked down at the ground. “Word has it 15 girls have gone missing all over the country, all born on the same day, rumour says they are all oracles.”

“Fifteen oracle in the same year of Hera.” James Scoffed. “That’s impossible you don’t get more than three or four in the world yet alone in one country.”

“I only know what I’ve heard.” Azule defended. “That’s all, now leave!”

“Gladly.” James explained as he turned to the rest. “Let’s get out of here.”

Dania let out a sort of half-whine as she turned to follow James. "Come on, boss," she pleaded. "You know Azule deserves a few scratches... or perhaps a dislocated shoulder. He'll recover just fine." She knew what his answer would be, but the silver-mix was nowhere near strong enough to crush her hunt-lust entirely... and if it was, she'd be dead. So James had to put up with such questions... and the further into the dose they got, the stranger her requests would get.

Jason led the group out of the club and back over to the coat/weapon check girl to collect his things, after everyone had gotten their stuff he turned back to look at Dania. “Nights still young Dee, got plenty of time to fight someone.”

The investigators left the warehouse and went towards the cars, Peter was there so James gave him a quick wave to let him know they had finished. A sound came from above them, like footsteps on the warehouses roof, James looked up and saw something falling. The falling objects crashed on to the floor with a bang letting James see they weren’t objects but a mixture of different darks, three of which James had never seen before.

“I think you’ll be getting that fight quicker that we thought.” James stated to Dania.

Peter nodded at Jason and started the van. He wanted to get out of here as fast as possible. These warehouses seemed to be falling apart - Wait a minute.

He shoved the door open and reached around, pulling his shotgun out. He dove across the van, bringing his Jericho up as he ran towards them. It was too dark for him to get a decent view of what they were being attacked by. He plunged his left hand into his jacket, pulling out a stake. This was not good.
