I nod. Vik wants in. Good. “Possible, but why?”
“I may be a Vampyre, but that doesn’t mean I like most of my kind. I have no use for anyone human or Vampyre who tries to subjugate others in any way. This particular one seems to be even worse than most. If between us we can destroy him and his empire, I’d feel a lot happier.”
I hear Pete sigh. Look at him.
“There goes the vacation for all of us.”
I shake my head. “You don’t have to be involved. Vik and I can do this on our own.”
“Yeah, right. In your dreams. Even with the four of us, it’ll be chancy at best, unless you have friends to throw in the mix as backup.”
“That can be arranged. But first I have to make my intros to his subordinate.”
“And that’s where I come in.” It’s obvious Vik has been thinking. “You walk in there after the message you sent, they’ll kill you before you can get a word in edgewise and you know that, if you have a grain of common sense.” He smiles, “Which I think you do. But if I take you in as my prisoner…”
“And just how are you going to explain catching me?”
He taps a finger on his lips. “Saw what you did to those punks, knew what you were. So I followed you back to where you’re staying, got the drop on you and that’s all she wrote.”
I consider that. Nod slowly. “Could work.” Look out the window. It’s almost dark now. “Yeah it just might. Let me make a call and let my partner know what’s going down. He’ll arrange for backup for us. You two,” I glance at Pete and Mychael. “How are you at tailing?”
“The best in the business.” Pete grins.
“No modesty there.” Mychael chuckles but it’s all in his voice not his eyes. He looks scared. Not good.
“If you don’t think you can handle this you stay here.” Staring at the kid.
“Hell no. I’m in this till the end. Okay, so I don’t like it but I’m as good as the rest of you.”
Vik nods. “He is and I’d trust him and Pete with my life. They’re both in.”
I shrug. “Your call. Let’s figure out the logistics of this then I’ll make my call.”
