The story picks back up with Faith leaving early for school and Zorander waking up early for studying. After Joshua realized that Faith left with only leaving a note for her absence, he spoke with Zorander before heading out. Virgil finally got out of the Consilium head meeting after 48 hours of scrying for Diamond Walker in the morning, only to be informed of the strange things that have been going on during his responsibilities. Most of the day was spent getting Lung Ryujin to a air craft hanger that was no longer in use. Cinderella got back home but was in horrible shape and didn’t care to talk even with Zorander’s offer of food. At the end of the night, Virgil found out of Faith’s trip to see the vampires at the bowling alley, the same ones who tried to kill Chain-Wu, and it made him almost sick. He then told her to not do things so rashly from here on out. Meanwhile, Cali went to school to get her CNA license. While she was walking home, Chain-Wu picked her up while walking home. She asked her what she was doing after school the next day and to see if she could spare a hour or two. Cali agreed and Chain-Wu dropped her off. Dr. Hendricks took this time while not at work to try and build understanding/relationship with the great Lung Ryujin. Faith decided to get a pool for the back yard, but she had to get Rebecca’s signature on it because she owned the house. She spent most of the morning with her. When Cali got off from school, Chain dropped by and picked her up and drove her to the school auditorium. She told her to wait till she got back. Virgil got to the meeting earlier than Chain-Wu, Joshua and John. While talking to the rest of them, Virgil lets the cat out of the bag and says Joshua slept with Faith, which got a awkward moment of silence and Joshua’s embarrassment. Just before the meeting started, Chain-Wu asks Cali to go inside the building with a blanket over her head. She sat her down and stood next to her till the meeting started. The meeting kicked off with the vote for ending the war on the undead (of which, Chain-Wu abstained). The other part of the meeting was John Seeks-The-Truth informing everyone of David treachery and that he believes that he has relocated to St. Louis. Chain-Wu chimes in by saying she is starting a task force to “retrieve” him. Chain-Wu then went over to Cali, and before unveiling her, stated that it has came to her attention that there are different “breeds” of Werewolves. So much so that the ones that she received help from were instrumental in revealing David’s affair. She then pulls the blanket off and Virgil, Faith, and Zorander stare in shock. Chain then addressed the almost panicking Consilium for them to calm down and show some spine. She said that she will be needing extra help in dealing with threats to the Consilium and would petition for there aid. She also stated that if anyone lays a hand on Cali, that they will answer to her. She then opened up the discussion to the group to ask question, most of which were out of ignorance and out right insulting. The meeting ended with Cali being escorted out and some rather heated bickering from the rest of the Consilium heads. Virgil ask that if she was going to involve them, that it would be at least polite to ask them. She reluctantly agreed. Chain then took Cali to Arby’s for her participation. Virgil went to ask/plea for Zachary’s corporation. He said that he’ll do it, mainly because he would like to see the face of the one who keeps “kidnapping” his daughter. Virgil then said to Susan that Zorander wanted to see him. She said it doesn’t help that her phone gets no reception. They both then left out for the club that Zorander and Faith went to. Faith invited Joshua who was a little wary (Virgil smoothed things over with Rebecca and she wasn’t angry). With help from Faith, Susan looked her best for the get together. However, it was soon ruined by the people Faith remembered at the meeting with the vampires at the bowling alley. As the crew left (after Faith saw them looking at her from across the room) they began to follow her home. Zorander delayed there pursuit by sapping the velocity from the car, making it much slower and easily out distanced it till home. Zorander and Susan quickly went to his room. Later that night, they heard the screech car tires outside. Upon investigation, the mail box and car was spray-painted yellow. Cinderella informed them that this was a tactic they used to distract. They crawled back to the house. They saw something in the distance that could be a sniper, but it turned out to be only a dog on a roof. When Virgil used spacial mapping, he found a huge rat in the basement. Upon probing it with mind, it turned out that it sneaked in while everyone was outside and sent here to spy on people. Virgil then let it free to return to the house it came from with false memories and mentally rode shotgun to follow it to the destination, which was home to the vampires that Faith had previous met.
