Case Of Khymera - Chapter 03Alex himself wasn't exactly in a mood that morning. As soon as he got to his apartment, he made a two cups of coffee. He was forced to gulp them both afterwards, because Adine refused to drink or eat anything.
It was about two weeks they had known each other, but weren't in such a dire situation to that moment. Fighting Reza, that was different, as both of them knew what would happen if they failed. This time however, they couldn't predict anything. Khymera was more or less mysterious about her intentions and there wasn't any statement given from the government either.
"You sure you don't want anything?" asked Alex again after he tried offering Adine fresh fish, he was planning on eating that day.
Adine just shook her head. She didn't speak a word after she was told the painful truth, but her silence was about to go, "Why me? I didn't do anything wrong." she sniffed, holding back tears.
Alex dropped everything, joined his girlfriend on a couch and hugged her. It was their last day toge
Case Of Khymera - Chapter 06It took another two day to close all the case files, thanks to Emera, who wanted to have everything done the most precise way possible.
Bryce sighed as he figuratively measured the pile of paper he had to go through until he could go out of his office and get a beer.
It was the last day before the weekend, which didn't help raise Bryce's morale even a little bit. Working overtime at Friday? Who does that?
Knock on his office's door disturbed the thoughts of the earth dragon.
"Come in," said Bryce in his usual deep tone, maybe even deeper that time.
The one who entered was Adine and she had someone else with her.
"Hey, big guy," she said in a happy tone, waving one of her wings at Bryce in friendly manner.
"You know, you shouldn't call me like that. We are not kids anymore, Adine," replied Bryce. Strangely enough, he couldn't remember Adine when he first met her at the crime scene during the Reza investigation. After that, it was like someone had flickered the light on. He used to hang
Case Of Khymera - Chapter 05 Fyr was placed in one of the comfortably cold prison cells at the police station. It was on Bryce's order, because he didn't want to miss on more sleep. He, and the others were dead tired, that was why Sebastian and Alex didn't object against the idea of locking the criminal up for a night.
As there wasn't much left to do, Bryce bid Alex and Sebastian good bye. Sebastian insisted on staying awake, because he had to look out for Amely, as she could wake up at any moment. Alex caught up with the idea, and insisted at staying as well. Bryce only waved a paw, like he wanted to say, 'Do what you want, it's your health.'
Sebastian and Alex came to an agreement to take shifts at watching Amely, and occasionally visit Fyr.
There was another thing to consider. Khymera was still a government agent, and thus she had access to a lot of places. Alex was almost sure, she would show up the second she'd hear, Fyr was caught. Alex obviously shared his concern with Sebastian.
"Well, maybe you should go
Case Of Khymera - Chapter 04It was an interesting day for Adine. First of all, she kicked Sebastian's butt in race, slightly punished him for interrupting her date with Alex. She knew it wasn't the smaller dragon's fault, as he was just following orders. It didn't change anything about the fact she was a marked a criminal after that.
Adine had a bad feeling about Khymera from the very beginning she saw her. She had a feeling Khymera got her in trouble before. It was something from a time she did deliveries to government buildings, before it was taken over by local restaurant. Adine remembered Khymera had a big problem with the meal she ordered, but couldn't recall what was it. That wasn't why was Khymera trying to get her in jail probably anyway. It did give Adine something to think about, though.
It also made it easier to forget about Alex. Adine's insides hurt like never before. One wouldn't tell the saying 'love hurts' had to be taken so seriously.
Adine sighed for a thousand time that day. She was on a break
