“When you’re done cleaning up your supper, you can mop the floor in the
basement,” Captain said, not even looking up from his newspaper.
My molars threatened to crack from the pressure of keeping my mouth
“There’s blood everywhere,” Gage added with forced dramatization,
“but you’ll probably want to sweep what you can first before getting the
mop out. We took some chunks out of it.”
How much longer is this hazing going to last? I took some deep breaths.
An explosion would be a red mark on my official record, and Fate knew I
couldn’t afford any more of those. As the new member to their team, some
teasing or ribbing was expected, but this misogynistic, macho bullshit? I
hadn’t been here long and it was already getting old. These three pricks
sitting around the plastic folding table deserved a little ass kicking.
“Permission to go on a hunt tonight, sir,” I clipped out, addressing the
leader of this backcountry squad.
Captain didn’t even flick a glance in my direction. “We’re not hunting
tonight, newbie. We caught a critter last night. Wasn’t too hard, either.”
“It’s like they’re getting lazier and lazier,” Fox snorted. “This one damn
near walked into our arms.”
Something about that sentiment prickled. And not just because I’d been
excluded last night as well. Any of the field work I’d done at the academy,
any of the material I read, said monsters didn’t come to us. Ever. Hunters
were feared by the supernaturals. A proud tradition I was more than ready
“It was a vampire, right?” I asked carefully.
“Fangs and everything, baby.” Fox leaned his elbows on the table.
“Don’t worry, it’s tied up real tight. We can’t let an abomination take a bite
outta your sweet flesh.”
There were sixty-two ways I could kill Fox in this moment. Ten more if
I was armed with a gun instead of blades.
“Respectfully, sir, protocol states that a prisoner should be guarded at all
“Candy,” Captain snapped and laid his newspaper down. “What you
learned at the academy and how the Guild operates in the real world are two
completely different things. The sooner you get that through that pretty little
head of yours, the better.”
I swallowed and gave him a tight nod. There was no point correcting the
absurd nickname the others had given me. My assigned name for the time
being was Candace. That was what these Neanderthals should have been
“Good.” Captain pushed to his feet and picked up his plate. At least he
was going to bring the dishes to the sink. He stopped before passing me.
“Look, you’re not missing much. As soon as we get the monster to give us
its name, run it through the database at HQ to ensure it’s not some monster
they’re interested in—which it won’t be, they never are—then we kill the
vamp and move on. It’s not glamorous. This is war, Candy. We scrape by
every day against the forces of darkness.”
That was the most my superior officer had spoken to me since I arrived
in New Orleans.
