Jocelyn sat on the bench in the police station. They gave her a blanket and a coffee. No one knew what to make of the girl who had come to them and said she was lost. They felt bad for her. She was pretty girl. Young.
The door opened. Two men entered.
Jocelyn looked up. "Fa-Josef!" She rushed to him, forget her coffee and blanket.
The police watched one of the men wrap his arms around the girl as though he hadn't seen her in years. "Jocelyn?"
She tried to speak but broke down sobbing. Josef hugged her again.
The police chief walked closer. "Are you Josef Konstan?"
"Are you taking Miss. Konstan into your custody?"
Josef nodded again.
The chief handed him a paper. "Sign these"
Josef pulled back from Jocelyn and signed the papers. "Can we leave?"
The chief nodded, taking the papers.
Josef led Jocelyn outside to the awaiting limo. She laughed. "Always traveling in style."
Josef opened the door and let Mick and Jocelyn in first. "Airport" he said to the driver.
"Who is this?" Jocelyn asked as they began to move. She was looking at Mick who sat opposite her.
"Mick St. John" Mick said, extending his hand. She smiled as she shook his hand.
"I'm Jocelyn Konstan, but I assume you already knew that"
"I did" Mick said.
"How did you get here, Joci?" Josef asked.
Jocelyn leaned back on the seat. "I made the mistake of trusting a…evil man when I left."
"He swept me off my feet and we traveled around together for a while. While in Germany, he stole my accounts and put a stake in my heart."
Josef exhaled angrily. "When?"
"1859, I believe"
Josef and Mick both swallowed heavily of the thought of a stake in the heart that long. "How did you escape?" Josef asked.
"A couple pulled the stake out"
"Did you kill them?"
Mick looked at Josef. "She has some self-control"
"I do" Jocelyn said. She glanced out the window. "So much has changed."
"I would have found you if I'd known."
"My accounts were still being used…I assume you guessed I just didn't want you around."
"I did for a while till the transactions stopped. Then I assumed someone had killed you. I tried to find you, but I already believed you dead, so I didn't try hard."
"Is Charles dead?"
"I would assume" Josef said, leaning his head back and looked out the other window.
The three vampires exited the terminal to have Beth rush at them. "You found her?!"
"Yes" Mick said.
"Jocelyn" Josef said, with a knowing smile, "I'd like you meet Mick's little…friend"
"Friend?" Jocelyn asked.
Josef smiled at her, as he looped an arm around her. "That's what they tell me" He walked away with her.
Beth and Mick followed them closely. "Are you insinuating things?"
"Yes" Jocelyn said.
"Watch it" Josef said, squeezing Jocelyn against him, giving her a kiss on the top of the head.
Beth looked at Mick. "I've never seen him so happy" Mick said.
"He looks like he found a part of himself" Beth said.
Josef climbed into his expensive car. A Bugatti Veyron. Jocelyn gave the bright red convertible one look and burst out laughing. Josef looked over at her. "What?"
"It reeks of money" she said.
"It should" Josef said, leaning over to open the door. "It cost 1.7 million"
"Dollars?" Jocelyn cried, looking at the car again.
"Just get in" Josef said, starting the car.
Jocelyn reluctantly climbed into the car and closed her door. "So what makes it so special?"
"It's the most expensive car ever" He looked at her and added, "in the whole world."
"Someone is going to think you are compositing for something" He nearly stalled the car as he turned to look at her. Jocelyn giggled, as her father shifted gears.
Neither spoke again till they were stopping just outside the Konstan Enterprise building. Two businessmen, who were at a meeting at the restaurant across the street, stared as Josef stopped the car.
"What do you think they're staring at, me or the car?" Jocelyn asked, leaning slightly towards Josef to get a better look at the two young, and admittedly handsome, men.
Josef glanced at them and then at Jocelyn with an amused look, "You tell me"
"Look at that car!" one said, leaning forward toward the other.
"Look at the woman" the other responded.
"Who is that guy?"
A pause as both studied Josef, who turned slightly so they could still see him but it looked like he was speaking to Jocelyn. "That's Konstan Industries" the second man responded, "Based on the car…and the girl, I'd say that is Josef Konstan."
Josef laughed, big enough that the guys across the street could see. "Apparently I'm the topic"
"We'll see about that" Jocelyn was glad she had gone shopping before they left Germany, as she got out of the car. Her long pale legs were played up by a short charcoal grey causal business skirt, while her pale skin was accented by a black dress shirt. Her heels matched her top. She started to walk down the street.
Whatever the guys said, Jocelyn didn't know but Josef was on her in a second with a disgusted looked covering his normally charming features. She tried not laugh at his anger. "Wait in the car. If they come anywhere near you-"
"I'll scream" Jocelyn said, shoving his shoulder playful with her hand. "I'm not two" She started back to the car as Josef headed into his building.
That car does come as a convertible…sort of…it has a detachable roof
