Chapter One: Rejection and Summer Scandal
Sam and Dean sat in a small coffee shop in downtown Milwaukee, discussing where they'd be going next. Actually Sam was discussing the matter with himself while Dean had his eyes on a pretty little brunette looking through the aisles at the adjoined bookstore.
"Dean, are you even listening to me?" Sam asked frustrated. His brother nodded not even looking at him. Sam sighed and looked in the direction that Dean was staring. His shook his head and turned to scold his brother only to find that Dean was walking towards the mystery girl. He closed his laptop and put it in his bag before taking a sip of his coffee.
Dean grabbed a random book off the shelf and opened it to a random page still glancing at the girl. He smiled at the realization that she had no idea he was watching her.
"So what's a guy like you reading trashy romance novels for?" He dropped the book startled. Okay, maybe she did know he was looking at her.
"What's a girl like you doing reading trashy romance novels for?" He asked her in return. The amused look she gave him brought his attention to the book he had been holding and its position on the floor. When she didn't answer him he spoke again, "I'm Dean."
"And I'm not interested." She said turning and walking away. Dean stared after her confused. He had to actually shake his head to dispense of the confusion. In the meantime Sam had come up behind him and was patting him on the back.
"Come on dude I think I've found another seal." Sam said grabbing Dean by the jacket and pulling him from the store.
"Dude, she flat out rejected me! Do I have something on my face?" Dean asked thoroughly confused by the girl's rejection.
"Dude we have a job to do!" Sam said getting in the car.
"Fine, tell me about this next seal." Dean said starting the engine.
"Four girls have all disappeared in the Madison area, Shelly Kenmore, Kelsey Ramoni, Echo Palmer and Melissa Larson. All four girls attended the same high school and supposedly were all part of the same group of friends." Sam said pulling out a notebook filled with pictures and notes. "I made a few calls to their parents and from what I've gathered there are two other girls in the clique that haven't gone missing."
"So you think whatever's taking these chicks will go after the other two?" Dean asked casting a glance down at a few of the photos.
"Shelly, Kelsey, Melissa and Emily Kildero all graduated this past year." Sam continued.
"Emily is one of the two that haven't dropped off the face of the earth." Dean stated, receiving a nod from Sam.
"Gemma Schuster is a sophmore at the University of Milwaukee this year." Sam told him. "Echo was taken when she was with her girlfriend Adrienne at a party two summers ago in late June."
"When were the others taken?" Dean asked as he got on the interstate.
"Shelly went missing when she was on a school trip in Greece this past summer. The chaperone said she checked on her at about eleven because she was complaining of a migraine. She was sound asleep but when she went to wake Shelly in the morning the girl was gone." Sam read off the article from a newspaper clipping.
"What about Melissa and Kelsey, what's their story?" Dean inquired turning off the radio.
"Melissa worked at a pizza parlor in town and was supposedly grabbed after leaving early due to a headache while walking out to her car. Thing is there are no witnesses and she was taken in the one spot the cameras didn't cover. Kelsey is the interesting one. She was with both Gemma and Emily at a late movie when two guys held all three at gunpoint. What they didn't know was that Kelsey had a stun-gun in her purse, Emily was carrying mace and Gemma not only had a pocketknife somewhere on her person but a baseball bat in the back seat of her car. After the police showed up the three girls had taken off leaving two beaten up guys in the movie theatre parking lot. When asked to be spoken to Gemma and Emily refused to speak with police except to say that they dropped Kelsey off at home on their way to Emily's because she was complaining of a headache. The next morning Kelsey's mom called the police because her daughter was missing." Sam finished and continued to fish through his notes.
"So they were all alone with the exception of Echo when they were taken." Dean thought out loud. "Now Gemma is away at college and Emily is still stuck in what seems to be this thing's hunting grounds by herself."
"The thing is Dean, all of these girls come from different backgrounds all live in the Madison area except for Gemma who's away at school and Emily who lives out in a town called Mt. Horeb." Sam said. "All were taken at night but Shelly was half way around the world. The inconsistencies are enough to make it seem like a string of coincidences that all these girls from the same general group of friends are being kidnapped."
"So tell me why we are heading away from Gemma's school." Dean asked starting to slow down.
"I hacked into the university's computer system and pulled up her schedule. She's done with classes on Friday's at noon. I'm assuming that she goes home for the weekends since she's a little over an hour from home." Sam said pulling out Gemma's schedule.
"Dude…you printed off her schedule?" Dean asked raising an eyebrow.
"Shut up." Sam said leafing through more papers. "I'm looking for her school ID picture." He pulled a piece of paper out of his notebook and paused.
"What? Is she that ugly?" Dean asked with a smirk.
"Turn the car around." Sam said. Dean looked at his brother confused and Sam showed him the picture of Gemma Schuster.
"Dude, that's the girl from the bookstore!" Dean cursed pulling over and turning back towards downtown Milwaukee.
