"Well I could ask you the same question Griggs." Fort told him
"I came for a training exercise, simple stuff. Then a vamp...killed Simmons." Griggs said grimly
"What?! Simmons is dead?!"
(Simmons was also on the Nurhachi mission)
"Yea, some god damn vamp....thats why im still here. Sent the rest of the team home. I gotta avenge him Fort."
"No no, I understand. I do the same for Simmons...he was a good man, a good soldier...."
There were a few seconds of silent pondering on both Griggs and Fort's minds.
"Anyways, what are YOU here for?" Griggs asked Fort
"I was sent to investigate some weird deaths going on in the area with were's and vamps. Theyre being sapped of their powers and energy it looks like. They look like mummies afterwards."
"Thats demonic work right there."
"Exactly what I said, so I ran some tests on a body and sent the results to HQ."
"You mean you have the body in your room?" Griggs asked, a alittle skeptical
"Yea take a look at this..." Fort unlocked the door and showed Griggs the body bag in the corner of the room. Fort had to get rid of it later....it was quite disturbing. He unzipped it and Griggs bent lower to see it.
"Jeez...you said you tested it and sent the results to the Knights?" Griggs asked Fort
"Yea, couple of minutes ago."
"What did they say it was?"
Fort swallowed hard, Griggs would understand the situation once he said what kind of demon it was.
"What the $^#! Fort! How many reinforcements did you call? How many do you think I should call-"
"What?! A BALOR LORD FORT. This is no Imp or Revenant or Hell Knight. Its a BALOR LORD."
"But theres a problem..."
Fort explained the whole situation about his possible mother, Anita, and the jeopardy that any other slayers in Murk Valley would cause. They would wipe out all vamps and wolves alike in their search for the Balor Lord. Fort wanted his mother alive.
As a fellow lycan hybrid, Griggs understood.
"Your mother...jeez Fort. So much for random useless city of Murk Valley. Now theres warring vamp and wolf conclaves and a Balor Lord and your mother might be here." Griggs told Fort
"Yea, we got ourselves a big problem now-"
A phone rang in the room. Fort checked his, the room phone and Griggs checked his (does he have one?). Fort couldnt find the source. He thought he heard it close to... Tiffany?
Fort looked at Griggs and Grigs shrugged. He looked back at the body bag and unzipped it again. He reached into a pocket of Tiffany's and found a phone ringing.
"Ashryn" the caller ID read.
"Ashryn?" Fort asked Griggs
"Dont know one." Griggs replied, shrugging again.
It continued to ring.
"Do I...?" Fort asked
"Um...this isnt in the manual...do it I guess."
Fort flipped the phone open.
"Hello?" He spoke into the mic.
