Learning to look after yourself is something Kaelyn learnt from a young age. Never having anyone caring for her. Nobody that matters. Just her. At the orphanage where she grew up nobody really cared for her, just wanted her for her powers. For her mind. Always being the best thinker. One to come up with different plans and strategies on the spot. Quick on her feet. Making Kaelyn a natural when it came to learning how to be a con artist. Back then it started off as a way the orphanage did to get money. Training the children of how to pick pocket, steal a few valuables so they can then sell it off for money. Using them for their own advantage. Kaelyn not knowing the full extent of all before she turned 18 where it all came into light. Finding out what she is. It all making sense, why she always felt like an outcast all her life. Not being the same species as everyone else. To when first finding her powers the people at the orphanage started to ‘use’ her for her abilities so she could become an asset. Where in reality it was so Kaelyn could help them into bigger cons, for more money. Leaving there soon as she could, escape it.
Kaelyn’s childhood and life was far from a fairy tale. Choosing to live a lonely life. As the years pass the Instar Diviner feels that she’s losing hope. Is this all her purpose is? To live a life alone. Stealing from the rich so she can then feed and fend for herself. Not having a stabile or normal income as everyone else. Moving ever so often to escape the prying eyes of those around her. Like many people of the supernatural does. A never ending cycle. It was one of the downfalls for being an immortal, wishing that she could have a normal human life. To age normally and one day die. Now Kaelyn was thinking what is the point of it all. It wasn’t so bad now. After meeting Riley, things started to change for the better. So Kaelyn’s not feeling so alone now. Company. It was a strange thing after spending many years alone. Refreshing. Even with all of Riley’s personality and habits so to speak, used to it by now. Her mind often wondered to what if could have been like if she agreed to talk to her cousin. To hear him through. Find out of her past, the reason why her parents abandoned her when she was just a baby. Maybe Kaelyn was afraid to admit that she was scared of abandonment. Thinking that she’d let him in and he’d then leave. Used to people leaving on her. Always feeling that she was never wanted.
It was getting darker this time of the afternoon. Making it easier to go out an pickpocket a few people. Since they can’t see you coming along with it being rush hour. Everyone hurrying back to go home. It’s more harder to do it in broad daylight so she tried to do it at a time where it’s too dark to see. The Redhead had already had pick pocketed a few people going onto one of the lasts for the night. Enough money to pay for some days worth of food. As Kaelyn was reaching her hand into the males back pocket grasping the wallet to slip it out, for the person not to notice. She suddenly felt a strong grip grasping onto her list as she was brought to a halt too. Feeling a the male twisted her around so they could face one another. She took a large gulp as she looked into his eyes, full of shock knowing too well she'd been caught. Sensing the man was someone more than a normal mundane. “You have the right to remain silent and refuse to answer questions. Anything you say may be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to consult an attorney before speaking to the police and to have an attorney present during questioning now or in the future.” The words echoed from the male, the typical speech used when arresting people. Able to know what was ahead of her and happening now. She was being arrested, pick pocketed the wrong person.
What happened next all happened in a blur. The Instar Diviner knew too well not to act out or try to provoke. Offering her hands out to the police officer before he would force her hands behind her wrists. Hearing as he made some calls before being guided to his car, seeing as he was officer off duty. It weren’t too long till she was guided to the front desk before taken to a room so some documents could be done. Along with her fingerprints to be taken so it could be documented. Searched where they were able to find some cash she had stolen, along with some cards and her phone. Vaguely remembering before being forced to have a mugshot taken. Holding of a sign with her name, inmate number. As it was getting later, it would mean everything would be moved till tomorrow. Leaving the Redhead to be locked inside a prison cell for the night. Taking her back to the nights in the orphanage in the small room, similar bars on the windows. Leaving her alone with only her thoughts keeping herself company. Blaming herself for how foolish she was. All these years having a clean streak and now she'd been caught. It was even too late to call anyone.
Her thoughts went to Riley, would she notice that she was gone. Would she come looking for her. Tracking her by her scent and all. Kaelyn weren’t too sure. All night she spent trying to think of what to say to the police officers. How could she explain what she does. Along with the documental details. Would they be able to see that they were forged. It weren’t till morning when one of the prison guards told her she was able to make a phone call. Kaelyn had no one to ring. The modern day was still strange for Riley. Whereas she had no other friends to call. A name came into her head. One she had been pondering whether or not it’ll be a good idea to contact. Would he answer her call or shut it down just like to before when she practically slammed the door into his face. The Redhead was guided to one of the phones, lined up behind people. Waiting to take her turn. Watching as the room full of strangers had their eyes on her. Thinking she didn’t belong here, looking out of place. It was true. She was out of place and hated it there. Not wanting to stay any longer than she has to.
When it came to her turn, Kaelyn started at the numbers on the phone. Was she ready to call the only family she had left. To grovel at his feet. In fear she would be locked up. Knowing already it can be a long sentence if all her crimes she’s committed throughout the years from stealing comes out. Taking a deep breath she pressed the numbers into the phone. Having memorised it before from the piece of paper he had given her when they last met. To when he tried to persuade him to talk to him. Kaelyn memorised the numbers, stuck in a constant battle whether to listen to him through. Now it was happening, not the way she’d expected it to be live. As people says there's no time like present. The wait was antagonising as she waited for an answer. For the call to be directed through. Hoping he hadn’t changed his number over the years.
It weren’t too long till she heard a confused hello through the other side of the line. Ready to face her fears. “Wyatt it's me Kaelyn. I’ve messed up and I really need your help. Please come to Evermore City Police station. I promise I’ll tell you more then I’ll hear you out” She pleaded, letting him hear the fear in her voice. Afraid to be stuck in there for any longer. Promising she’d make it all up if he helps to get her out of here. The anticipation of waiting was worst. Would he bail her out or leave her here, that was the big question.
Wyatt frowned to his cousin as she asked for more clarification on the threatening note that had arrived at his door. He shook his head and spoke softly. "I don't know." He hated it. He hated not being able to figure out who was doing this to her. Magic was no use as the tracking spells never worked and he didn't know what else to do. The endless nights he'd spent over his books had yielded no other tracking spell that could forgo the anti one that had been put on the letters. It wasn't like they could go outside of the coven and contact the police. Most of them were still human and getting them involved was never a good idea. He had thought of suggesting the help of the other ambassadors, but who was to say it wasn't one of them or someone close to them? Perhaps a close friend of the old coven leader.
He shook his head to clear it of the conspiracies that were always forming in his mind. Just at the moment, the waiter came to the table and placed their food down. Wyatt stared at his plate and suddenly didn't feel very hungry. He picked up the soda and left the flatbread, taking a sip of the drink instead. "Since we haven't gotten any closer to figuring out who is doing this, I'm thinking we need to change strategies." Wyatt met his cousin's eyes, knowing she wasn't going to exactly like the idea. "I think you should stay with me at my place till we find out what's going on. Send Riley away for a bit." Before she could begin to protest, he continued on. "Listen, you have me continuously looking into ancient magic that's been lost to time for a reason. We want to strengthen the coven. There isn't really a safer place to be then my place right now. I have endless amounts of texts and spells at my disposal. Maybe the best offense is a really good defense, Kae. We're running out of time and options and I'm not letting you out of my sight till we figure out who the hell is terrorizing us."
He reached into his bag and pulled out an amulet which he'd gotten from Italy on a trip to some of the ancient cities that yielded a few excellent grimoires and artifacts. "Here." He slid the necklace over which had an onyx stone hanging from a gold chain. "Wear it, please? I imbued it with a few spells that will help with protection and tracking if... something were to happen. I know it's not up to your high standard of fashion, but do your cousin a favor and just wear the thing for a bit. It'll give me some peace of mind." He could see the distaste already in her face which made him smirk slightly. She was stubborn. It ran in the family. The grin quickly faded though as the reality of the situation fell heavy on him again. "Where's Riley now? Have you still not told her about all this?"
Kaelyn did want to find out and get to the bottom of who was sending her threatening notes. Not wanting to leave for it to get any worse. Having enough of people trying to target her the people close to her because some people are unhappy that she was given a leader target. Kaelyn didn’t know why political alliances a titles mattered so much to people. Feeling that she would need to prove herself to gain the support of others who may oppose her. At least the other ambassadors were on her side and supported her with all in some way been in the same situation as she’s found herself in. “So we can’t use a locator spell to find who may be sending the letters” She wondered looking over to her cousin but knew that he probably have already tried different ways to try to get any information that now they were having this discussion still he’s not had any luck yet. “Some people have nothing better to do to target me, these don’t even know me” She sighed rubbing her temples for a moment already having enough wanting for this all to go away.
Coffee was always a necessity for both her and Riley something they nearly lived on that and some booze. She always liked coffee that's freshly made in coffee shops, soon sipping her coffee before taking some bites of her panni that Wyatt ordered. Noticing that he was not eating any of his food, seeing how her cousin was just starting down at it instead. “You not hungry cousin” She wondered motioning to his untouched food which she was already picking at hers. Kaelyn was always one to stress eat or pick at stuff most of the time if she’s feeling peckish. Rileys bad habits now rubbing onto her. She didn’t like the idea of sending her girlfriend away not wanting for that to happen. “I don’t want to send Riley away she’s safer with me or you rather than somewhere else. She’s still paranoid thinking her brothers are still out to get her with if we were to send her away it’ll only make it worse” Quickly turning away his idea of sending her girlfriend away. “We can move back in with you if that's you want but not keep us apart” In a way she was trying to meet him in the middle someway. One of the plans and strategies she had thought of was to look into ancient magic, enlisting the help into Wyatt for him to look up it. Now looking back at it, it was quite a difficult job with how both of them were struggling to find anything. “Maybe we have to catch them in the act, be right under their feet without them knowing” The thought popped into her head thinking maybe they don’t always have to look on the supernatural side of things. “We could get our hands on hidden cameras and different gadgets” It could either be a good or stupid idea.
Kaelyn was a little confused as Wyatt went to get something out of his bag she thought maybe it was another one of the letters, threats to her or others close to her. Instead it was an amulet, looking at it closely, she saw that it was an onyx stone. Kaelyn could see and hear how much Wyatt was worried for her safety. In the short amount of time in the last year they have bonded and become more family to each other. She was still all new to the whole family aspect to be wanted and loved in a way she’s never been before. Having spent the better part of her life by herself alone always feeling that she was unwanted and unloved. Taking her only till now to find all the missing pieces trying to put herself back together. “I will cousin if it would give you some peace of mind” Giving him a soft smile reassuring him that she would look after herself. Taking the amulet putting it on, holding it as she looked down to take it in more. “It is beautiful even though it's not my usual red emerald pendant” Not something she would have picked out but knew that the stone holds magic instead of what it may look like. With the question before turning to where Riley was she almost looked to the empty chair beside her used to having Riley with her whilst her and Wyatt have their usual lunch catch up and meetings. “Oh she’s with some Aspect, Virideus. He’s teaching her some basic english skills” Remembering where her girlfriend was. When she meant basics she meant right back to preschool learning how to read and write with how Riley wasn’t alteriate but that was how she was raised mostly on how to be a wolf rather than live as a human.
Wyatt nodded as Kae told him her girlfriend was with one of the Aspects. If ever there was a safe place to be in Evermore, it was with one of those beings. No one would be stupid enough to try and go against them and if they were that stupid, they'd have to be pretty powerful. He didn't think the people who were harassing them were any more than just a couple of disgruntled diviners. Or so he hoped. If it was someone or someones who were more organized and that angry, there was no telling who they were up against. It would be easy to call on the rest of the coven, but of course they had no idea if any of them were the ones sending the letters. What if it was a rouse? A way to get he and his cousin thinking ill of their own members just to weaken them in some grand scheme meant for something more?
The fae shut his eyes tightly and opened them again to be rid of the thoughts. He hated all these conspiracies he was coming up with. It made him doubt the coven. If anything, he was happy she had agreed to come stay with him, even if it was just for a couple nights. The letter had stated whatever was to happen was to be tomorrow, so if these threats were really to become a reality, he'd be able to keep an eye on her. Lifting the soda, he took another sip of the drink before deciding his appetite was definitely not going to show. Eating wasn't exactly at the forefront of his mind. "Let's get you a bag packed and then we'll head back to my place. I don't wanna use our teleporting powers unless it's absolutely necessary. If you have to get away, really quickly, even if I'm..." Wyatt left the rest unsaid. "We'll just do travel the mundane way for now."
After paying for the bill and getting their food wrapped to go, he lead his cousin to where he'd parked, offering to drive her to her car. The city was still buzzing at the lunch hour and traffic was still bumper to bumper. As they sat at the light, Wyatt turned to her with a small smirk. "Ya know, I've never seen where you and Riley stay. My brain imagines some abandoned mansion that looks like it's from the Victorian era that you've made grand again," he joked. He'd never in a million years thought Kae would go for someone like Riley. Not that he didn't like the therian; He enjoyed her spunk and resilience, but more so that his cousin seemed so into the finer things in life and Riley had come from nothing, needing to get everything to survive in life herself. Perhaps it was that they bonded over the most despite their different tastes. Regardless, Wyatt was happy she was happy and he knew the love they shared from the look on his cousin's face every time she spoke of her girlfriend.
Kaelyn did like these weekly coffee trips, way they were able to keep up to date. Especially all with what was happening these days but today was not on good terms. By now both of them have grown tired of all of the constant death threats that it’s all gotten out of hand. Since finding out they were now targeting her girlfriend, she all wanted for it to stop. Kaelyn could see how Wyatt was as happy as she was that Riley was spending more of her time around Virideus. At least they knew she was safe and protected when the two of them wouldn’t be around to protect her. “I think Virideus thinks of Riley as a daughter which is funny because she’s a grown woman and all” She grinned finding it all amusing but she was happy that Riley was going out and exploring. With how she knew Riley was always over paranoid thinking that her old family was out to get her, even with how much she told her that they were long gone. Now thinking it through, maybe she was being a bit selfish trying to speak for her girlfriend of wanting to keep her with her with how she didn’t know if she was able to protect herself, let alone someone else she cares for deeply. “Maybe you're right, that Riley would be safer with Virideus than she is with us” Kaelyn admitted looking saddened knowing that it would be the right thing to do. At least she knew Riley be safe even more so with how Virideus has a personal guard too, extra protection. Knowing that Wyatt was trying to protect her too.
The two cousins turned away from their conversation away from the letters with how they were in a cafe full of people not the best place to have a secret conversation. With prying eyes and ears. Sipping her coffee as she finished up her food hearing how Wyatt wanted her to hurry up and get going. “It might be more than a bag, a girl has needs and all” Smirking reminding him how she likes having a lot of things. “Relax Wyatt, I mostly travel the mundane way anyway” Giving him a look how she knew he was already overthinking. She never overused her powers, wanting to keep it when she needs it most. With how she saves it for her training lessons with Dakota. Kaelyn waited for Wyatt to finish up and pair before they headed out to Wyatt’s car since he knew she tended to park further away with how she never found a parking space easily when leaving things till last minute. “Or right” Remembering that she never had Wyatt around her own place with how she tended to always go to his place or places to eat out than her’s. “Your a bit wrong on that part” With how her house was more in the heart of the city, keeping it more modern than olden. Things inside her house was partly things she had stolen and other part is what she bought.
Wyatt smirked at her response to his educated guess about their dwellings. "Well, I guess today is the day you prove me wrong because in my mind, it's the two of you living a reclusive and luxurious lifestyle in your gothic castle in the woods until you get bored and venture into the world to rob the filthy rich." After getting through some of the mass amount of traffic, he could see his cousin's car about halfway down the block before hitting the same red light for the third time. Sometimes he wished he'd teleported into the city just to avoid this lunch hour mess, but he knew the lazy way could also prove to be very stupid if he needed to make a quick getaway. With the way things were going for them currently, a fast escape was something they may need at a moment's notice.
"Why don't you get out here and I'll just set the directions in my phone and meet you at your place? This mess doesn't seem to wanna clear anytime soon and you can get started on packing while I'm headed your way. The sooner we are at my place, the better I'll feel." His hues looked back to where she was parked which was just beyond the light that they kept continuously getting stuck at. "Be careful." He knew she was probably tired of him saying it constantly, but he couldn't help it. If something happened to the ambassador of the faction, they would surely fall into a chaos they couldn't afford now that they were finally getting back to finding a peace between the fae and necromancers. Far more importantly, Wyatt couldn't stand the thought of something happening to her.
He watched his cousin exit the car and head down the street with a sigh. A list immediately began to form in his head of all the preparations he wanted to do once they were back to his place. Extra runes. Extra spells. Extra protection. Whatever it took. Wyatt's mind was finally brought back from its drifting as the light changed to green. Inevitably, people behind him and in front started honking as if it would make everyone move faster to get through the signal. Rolling his eyes, he glanced ahead to his cousin who was getting in her car as he finished entering her address in his phone and placing it on the dash clip.
As his car inched forward, he noticed that two men suddenly moved from the side of the building between the crowds and were staring at Kaelyn as she began to pull away. A slight panic began to form in the pit of his stomach as the men moved into the car parked a few spots behind her, bullying their way into the street to ensure they would be able to follow close behind her. "Shit." Wyatt laid in on his horn as if it could possibly help, but he still had to wait just as everyone else had to before getting through the busy downtown hub. The diviner quickly commanded his phone to call his cousin and waited anxiously for her voice. There were still a bunch of cars between him, her, and the people following. "Pick up..." The ringing finally ceased and Wyatt didn't wait for her to greet him. "Kae! There's someone following you a few cars back. I'm trying to catch up. Don't go home!"
