He really needs to stop wandering the streets so late at night. All it’s ever done for the young therian is get him into trouble, but restlessness and the urge to be outside when the moon is out is strong and old habits die hard. He’d gotten off guard duty as he jokingly calls it a couple hours before, leaving the man with one of the newer hires in what is meant to be the easy shift of the job. Literally all the new guy has to do is watch the man sleep and make sure no one breaks in, it’s a job for babies. So then, why does he smell the familiar scent that’s been with him all day? He’d showered and changed, the scent isn’t residual on his clothes, and that’s when his nose picks up the sharp tang of blood.
Felix curses under his breath when he also doesn’t pick up the scent of the new hire and immediately takes off in the direction of the smell, following his nose as the scent gets stronger. It had rained earlier in the day, causing small puddles to go splashing under his boots as he runs toward the scene, the sense of dread in the young man’s stomach getting ever worse as he approaches. Finally he turns the corner into the alleyway and the sight that greets him stops him in his tracks. The man assigned to their protection is laying in his own blood and is quite obviously dead. He can’t even imagine how pissed off the bosses are going to be, but even more than that he wonders what on earth happened?
He’s not the first one at the scene either, a patrol car had been stopped at the entrance to the alleyway and the two cops are already on the scene. The third person is obviously not a cop judging from the way he’s dressed and, judging by the man’s scent, is also not human. Felix approaches the men cautiously, not wanting to get himself tackled in suspicion. “Excuse me, what’s going on here?” He’s already produced the card from his pocket that identifies him as private security. “This man was under the protection of the company I work for. My bosses will want to be notified of what happened.” He’s polite but as he looks around the scene he already knows the cops are wasting their time with this man. His scent may be on the scene but it’s newer than the body’s, meaning he came on the scene after the murder had already happened.
Edward leant against the wall as he watched the sunset fall as he began to notice his abilities came back to full power as he pushed himself off the wall he began to make his way to a club which he had on his radar for some time due to a number of incidents had happened over several nights and he felt he had to investigate to ensure no supernaturals were involved as he blended into the crowd as he approached the club as he approached the entrance the darkness of the night for the darkness of the room and flashing lights. and the mixed speed of slow and fast-moving people as the room's new smells hit his nostrils.
The room flickered multiple colours as people danced and the smell of alcohol hit his nostrils from larger vodka and alcohol pops and the music was a little desired as it blasted is eardrums as he recalled his favourite era of music was from the 1900s as his eyes scanned the room looking for any suspected issues as he turned a faint scent of blood hit him as the speed of his searching increased as he used his abilities to view faster leading him towards the exits of the club he was met by darkness but the smell of blood was getting stronger.
The alleyway was pitch black on the lights from the street illuminated the alley slightly as he smelt the blood he followed it like a dog following a scent as he looked around for the something or someone as he touched the side wall he felt a substance on his hand as he removed his hand he smelt the blood he knew there was a human hurt or worse as he carefully moved forward he found a body motionless on the floor he knelt to check the pulse realising he was dead he closed the man’s eyes as a police car arrived on lights Edward heard the words “ get on your knees hands behind your head “ Edward wayed up his situation if it was darker he would have vanished but the lights illuminated the alleyway so he had no choice he placed his hands behind his head “I just got here I found him like this “ he looked around as he remained frozen to the spot as a figure appeared from behind “ i just followed the blood trail “.
While one officer seems busy trying to figure out what’s going on while also handling the valkyr with his hands up, the other approaches Felix to take the card from his hand and look it over. Felix sees the brief flash of recognition in the officer’s eyes before the older gentleman hands it back over. “We’re just as lost as you are buddy, we just got here ourselves. He was already here so better safe than sorry.” The officer points at the valkyr that the other one is watching over and Felix gives a brief nod. “If he’s right and there’s a blood trail it shouldn’t be too hard to trace it back to the actual scene. I doubt he’d be cooperating so well if he was the murderer… let alone have stuck around.”
He walks over to the body, frowning some at the murdered client. Nope, Orion and Ember are not going to be happy about this. But looking at the body it’s pretty clear that no valkyr did this, none of the signs are there. No, this was someone else. The cop watching over the valkyr, hearing what Felix said, frowns a little. There’s procedure and the like but they know that him just being there isn’t enough to link him to the murder so they’ll need to get his ID and address and then they’ll have to let him go until they get actual evidence gathered. Felix remains silent as the officer gets the information he needs from the valkyr, though Edward can probably feel his eyes on him the whole time. Not accusatory, more interested.
Letting the two go and getting on the radio to call in forensics, the two officers go to do the rest of their job and Felix approaches the man, hands in his pockets. “Unfortunate for you. You’ll still be a suspect even if they do have to let you go. Don’t worry though, they shouldn’t be able to pin it on you.” With a small smile Felix starts to walk in the direction he’d come, following the blood trail to see if he can figure out what happened. “Care to accompany me to figure this shit out?”
Edward followed the investigator as he looked back at the now illuminated crime scene as he turned his bed back to the investigator “I followed the blood trail from the new club that was opened 3 nights ago the private booth through to private dance floor “ Edward overtook the stranger as he began to lead the way back to the club finding the open back door that he excited a few minutes prior.
The club had become quieter as the crowds went out to see what was going on as Edward turned his head to to the guy “I highly doubt im on the police database but as your trying to help me “ he reached out his hand “ I am Edward Starhawk at your service “ he turned quickly as he began to retrace his steps to the seat that now showed a dark puddle of blood “I believe your victim was attacked here .”
