A big thank you to everyone for reading and for the reviews - enjoy!
I can't stay away from that damn file. Nearly every day I flick through it and read through the various reports, or look at the photos. Lauren's been gone for over six months and the pain is still raw. The pictures are the thing that make me long for her the most.
My anger at how violated Lauren's privacy has been hasn't diminished. I can't believe that the people Lauren trusted, including Dyson, have been spying on her. For the good of the fae my ass.
At first, I couldn't bare to look at some of the pictures. I don't even want to think about how they managed to take the more intimate ones. But in the end I couldn't resist, I was desperate to feel any kind of connection to her.
I've learnt so much about Lauren from the file. Not only has she been a geeky genius since birth, she is actually very athletic. Plus, she obviously has a preference for brunettes.
Seeing pictures of Lauren with her previous lovers is surreal. I know she would be devastated about the racier ones. It may seen irrational, but when I first looked at them, I was so jealous. I don't think I was jealous of the fact these women had slept with Lauren, but more the fact that they all seemed to have something that I haven't - a relationship with her.
I don't have many pictures, being on the run, you have to travel light. So, I'm glad there are some pictures of the two of us together, although thankfully, none of them are "intimate".
I've had the pictures of Lauren and I, along with a few of Lauren that I like scanned and saved to my phone. So here I am, sitting in my car at the Dal looking through them for about the hundredth time.
I eventually put my phone in my pocket and grab the envelop from the passenger seat. Since Lauren's been gone, I've been using her file to try and figure out where she might be. Unfortunately, so far all of my theories have been wrong.
I don't feel so bad though, since the Ash has a whole bunch of his people, including Nadia, looking for Lauren and they haven't found her yet either.
As I make my way inside I pause as I see Trick talking to a woman at the bar. It's not them that has my attention though, it's the box that is sitting on the bar between them.
Almost every month since Lauren's been gone, Trick has been receiving a delivery meant for me, the injections to help control my hunger/feeding. Trick said there is no way of knowing who and where they are from, but I know they are from Lauren. Given that the exact same type of box is now sitting on the bar, I have a feeling I'm currently staring at my very own delivery woman.
My heart skips a beat as I realise this woman could lead me to Lauren. Trick looks my way as I move towards them, he says something to his visitor as he grabs the box and puts it under the bar. She stands and turns, hell no, that's not going to happen. Before she can move I block her path, "where is she?"
When we make eye contact, I see a brief flicker of recognition before her face becomes unreadable. She moves closer in an attempt to get by me, "I'm sorry, but I don't know what you're talking about."
I decide to try a different tact, I reach out and touch her shoulder, my eyes glowing blue as I send a gentle pulse of energy through my hand, "where's Lauren?"
She brushes my hand away and chuckles, "sorry, but I really have to go."
I'm too shocked to react as she gently pushes me aside, as she gets level with me I see her eyes flash the most intense blue. What the fuck?
With each step she takes I'm filled with dread. If I don't take this chance to find Lauren I may never see her again. I fight the tears that threaten at the thought of losing Lauren forever.
I run to catch up with her as I lose the battle with my tears. Reaching out, I grab her by the arm and spin her around to face me. "Tell me where she is?"
We stare at each other. She is a couple of inches taller than me, a little older with long brown hair. She tugs her arm free from my grip and turns away. My heart breaks as I know she will never tell me and the realisation that Lauren will never come back sinks in.
"Please, I just want to know she's alright."
She takes several steps towards the door, but then hesitates. I hold my breath as she turns back to face me, for a moment she seems less confident. I don't move as she stands there looking at me, clearly debating with herself.
Finally, she takes a deep breath and walks towards me. "Come with me."
As I follow her towards Trick's office, my feet barely touch the ground.
