That Creepy One with the Skin

Post by Cedahlia on Tue May 24, 2016 9:45 pm

Hikari had received a call from her friend, saying that his brother had been framed for something he hadn't done. He remembered that her family were weirdly perceptive and almost like private detectives, so he'd asked for their help.

Which is what they were doing. They'd been in the car for hours, Bobby, Drake and herself and as soon as it had stopped she bounded out of it to stretch her legs.

"This the house, Hikari?" Bobby said as he straightened out his tie and jacket.

"Yeah." She replied. She watched Drake sift through an old shoe box of forged badges. "You won't need those yet."

"I'm just being prepared." Drake said and handed one over to Bobby, before climbing out of the car and shutting the door.

It didn't take them long to get up the stairs and knock on the door. Hikari hoped they were okay, their family had to be going through a lot.

"I've got it!" a male voice said from within the house. A boy of fourteen with messy blonde hair opened the door. He just stared at the two men for a moment but looked visibly relieved at the sight of Hikari. "Hey, you made it here pretty quick," he commented.

Hikari smiled at him and then wrapped her arms around him for a quick hug. "We rushed, you sounded so upset on the phone."

"Sometimes it's better if we can get here quick, everything is fresh in your mind and such." Bobby pointed out and waited for Hikari to introduce them.

"Ah, Jake. I'm sorry. This is Drake my brother and Bobby my... Somewhat dad and uncle? I guess." Hikari said.

Drake nodded, "sup?"

"Hi," Jake said with a bit of a wave for the two guys, just going along with the family friend that was like an uncle thing. "Well come on in. Beckie and I were just going over the stuff fro the lawyers with one of her friends," he said and waved her and the guys inside. He lead them through the house a short ways to the kitchen.

The kitchen table was covered in papers in a chaotic organized fashion. Beckie shared the same blonde hair as her little brother. She wore jeans and a t-shirt, her hair pulled back in a pony tail, she looked like she'd hastily gotten ready for the day and had other things to focus on than how she looked. There were faint bags under her eyes.

The girl at the table with her looked quite a bit more put together, in a casual blue dress and heels. Her dark brown hair was braided with feathers woven throughout the strands. Both girls looked up when everyone entered.

"These your friends?" Beckie asked Jake.

"Yeah," he said and did quick introductions. "This is my friend from school, Hikari. Her brother, Drake. And their...uncle, Bobby." Then he introduced the girls. "And this is my sister, Beckie and her friend, Nuala."

Hikari waved, before pushing her hands into her jeans pockets. She felt super conscious around Nuala who was all put together and she just had distressed jeans, a plaid shirt and a leather jacket on. All of them looked massively worn too.

"Hello," Bobby said politely as he casually looked over the things. "Jake called Hikari, said it was pretty urgent. But could someone explain to me exactly what's going on?"

Drake went over to glance at the stuff on the table. But he was paying attention.

Jake and Nuala both looked at Beckie.


"Okay," Beckie said. "So a few days ago my older brother, Zack, found his girlfriend tied up and murdered in their home. He was with me the night that it happened, helping me with a school project, so there was no way that he was the one that did it, but the police have security footage that shows him going into the house right at the time of her murder. They've got Zack locked up for something he couldn't possibly have done. The lawyers aren't even trying because of the video footage."

"I'm going to guess you don't have a copy of that and I'm going to need to go down to the station to see it," Bobby said, not that it was a problem. He could do that.

Drake looked up at Bobby though. A knowing glance passed through them both. They knew what they could be dealing with already, but the video would only confirm or deny it.

"We can help you with this." Hikari said, reassuring them. "Do you know if something similar has happened with anyone else? Girlfriends dying though their partner was away?"

"We don't have the video, no," Beckie said. "I didn't think there was any reason for us to keep the copy. My parents haven't seen it yet. They're still away on business but they'll be home soon in a few days. The lawyers were just going to show them. I don't know if there's been more murders like this..."

"I can look into it if you want," Nuala offered. "My parents are pretty active with the courts. If you're investigators, I might be able to convince them to release the video and some other information if that'll help. I think fresh eyes might be a pretty good help."

Jake just stayed quiet. He looked like he was trying not to get too excited or optimistic about it all.

"We can talk to the police, just helps if we have information going in." Bobby said, he looked at his phone. It was pretty late, but people would be working late hours if there was a murder case. "Hikari, stay here. You got your laptop?"

"Yip," she said and pat the laptop bag on her shoulder. "mind if I hook into your Wifi?" She asked as she pulled out the laptop and put it down.

"I'll come with you," Drake said as he stood up and left their papers to themselves for now.

"Yeah, go right ahead," Jake said and gave her the password. He looked up at the guys. "You'll need someone to take you to the station right?"

"I'll do it," Nuala volunteered quickly. Beckie looked like she was going to protest. But she also looked like she was too tired to really do it herself. "Why don't you put in an order for pizza? I know I'm hungry and I haven't been on the road all day."

"Yeah, I can do that," Beckie said, relieved to be given something to do that didn't require her to have to deal with the nightmare her family was going through right now.

"Station's not too far," Nuala said with a smile for the boys.

"Pizza sounds good." Hikari said with a smile after thanking Jake for the password. She logged in and then started to look in deaths in the town. She had figured that it would be big news, but you never know with these cases.

"Thanks," Drake said to Nuala as they walked out. He was excited to be working they'd spent a week studying and he was bored of that.

Bobby unlocked the car and opened the door for the girl. "If you tell me what direction to go, I'll get us there."

"It's east," Nuala said and got into the car. The thing definitely looked well worn. But it was still pretty comfy. She didn't look as if she disliked it. "It should be about fifteen minutes from here. At this time of night we're not going to hit any traffic."

"That's what I figured," Bobby said as he climbed into the car and Drake sat beside him.

"So, out of curiosity. Doesn't murder stories hit the papers real fast around here? Or if it is a thing, does your town keep it quiet?" Drake asked. Because it seemed so bizarre to him that they knew nothing.

"This town doesn't cover anything up that I know of," Nuala said. "I don't actually live in town. I only come down here because Beckie called pretty upset about what was happening. Understandably. I completely believe her of course but proving it isn't so easy as someone's word sometimes, you know? As for her...They'd only gotten back the day of the murder, like that morning I think. They were on vacation. Well, not Zack but Beckie and Jake."

"You don't live here?" Drake asked, he had to admit he was slightly confused by that. "How do you know the family?"

Bobby let them talk as he drove. He was paying attention though. He had faith that Drake would ask the right questions

"Oh Beckie and I met at a dancing class years ago when we were little kids," Nuala said. "Beckie's family used to live in the capital, where I live with my parents, but they moved about five years ago. Their mom got this pretty sweet job offer here. I still keep in touch with the family though. Zach and Jake are like brothers to me."

"Oh, it's nice you're all so close. I'm sorry for the issues you're getting right now then." Drake said because family drama was the worse.

Bobby's phone started to ring and he pulled it out and put it on speaker, "hey babygirl. Tell me you found something good."

"Have I ever let you down before?" Hikari replied.

"Not yet."

"Well, not today either. There is one other death that matches our m.o. But this time, the guy was heading out of town, he came home as his flight was cancelled. Now get this, he's in a mental hospital because, I quote he 'saw himself kill his girlfriend and run out of the house and down the street.' he's adamant that this happened." Hikari read out to them. "Is it what I think it is?"

"Probably." Bobby said and sighed. That was going to be a hard one to prove, that was for sure. "You did good, wondergirl. I'll check in with you soon."

"Over and out." Hikari said and hung up.

Nuala went quiet as she listened to Bobby. She waited until he'd hung up the phone to ask any questions. "So what did she find?" she asked curiously, sitting forward a little bit in her seat. It sounded like she had found something.

"That we have another murder that matches." Bobby explained, but he didn't go into detail as prim and proper ladies didn't need that. "Helps that I know it's a string. I think I know who, or what did this. But I just need you to trust me." He said as he pulled up outside the police station.

"Don't question us, he means. If you do us say or do something you're not sure about, just let it go. We are going to do whatever it takes to sort this out for you," Drake said as he turned around to look at her in the back seat. "Okay?"

Nuala just looked at the two of them. She was quiet as she considered what they were saying. A what, not a who. And that she needed to trust them. "So...you're actually Hunters then?"

Both Bobby and Drake looked at each other. Drake's hand went around to his back, gripping the butt of his gun.

Bobby, being the calm and collected sort just sat there and looked at this girl. "Who are you and how do you know about hunters? Don't lie to us. We will know, this one is jumpy sometimes. Don't make him jump, okay?"

Nuala stayed calm. "My brother got cursed years ago. We got our hands on as much research as we could. I know more about dark arcanists than fiends but we did consult hunters. You sound just like them."

"That doesn't answer who you are." Drake said in a cool manner. He slid the gun from his waist band but Bobby stopped him.

"Which hunters, so we can verify and please, who are you?" Bobby said for all they knew, she could be a cop from another place, or a minion for the thing that killed the kids' mother.

Nuala remained calm. Grace under pressure was something that she had. But she did struggle a little with the hunters' names. It had been a while. "I believe the hunters were Caleb Strong and Jody...Carns," she said. "I'm sorry. It was quite a while ago. I'm better with faces than names."

"As for who I am, my name is Fionnuala Leanai Marinella, Crown Princess of Kanto." Which just happened to be the kingdom they were currently in. Which meant that Drake was trying to pull a gun on the future queen of the kingdom in a police station parking lot. "There's a silver pendant with my family's crest around my neck should you like verification."

Drake pushed the gun back, not because she'd scared him with her title, but because she'd been honest. He leaned over and into the back of the car so that he could check that locket. He did so. "She's telling the truth."

"Well it was a pretty big lie if she wasn't," Bobby said, he sent a text message to find out if those hunters could confirm her story. "You can understand why we are being cautious, princess?"
