"Mike," Rebecca scolded. "Did you not just hear that he wants to help us?"
"I don't trust him. This could be a trap," He shot back.
"I agree with Mike. We can't risk it," Zack added.
"I say we at least listen to him," Maryse said, eyeing him thoughtfully. "What better way to take someone down then from the inside out?"
Alberto sent her a grateful smile, then turned his attention to the others that hadn't spoken yet.
"If Rebecca thinks it's alright, then it's fine with me," Maria stated, shrugging.
"We don't need any more vampires on this team than we already have. It's bad enough with the three of you," Hunter spat.
"No one asked you to join this team, Hunter. You're free to leave right now if you don't like it," Kevin retorted, standing up for Mike, Melina, and Maryse.
"Matt and I are fine with it," Amy added, elbowing him in the chest when he tried to reply.
"If John's okay with it, then so am I," Melina said, looking over at the werewolf.
He nodded with a smile, and all twelve pairs of eyes landed on Jeff.
"I- uh..." His gaze switched between his brother and his best friend, their opinions on opposite sides of the spectrum. "I'm not agreeing, or anything, but why don't we listen to what he has to say? What harm could it do?"
Amy and Matt smiled widely while Hunter glared at him.
"The vote is in your favour, Alberto. What's your idea for bringing down Kane?" Maryse asked, looking kindly at the other vampire in a way that made Zack's insides twist.
"Espionage," He answered simply. "As Kane's second in command, I can pretty much do anything I want, making infiltrating his security much easier on our part."
"Our? How do you expect to take someone in with you without raising suspicion?" Mike asked, trying to keep his tone even.
"That's the only tricky part. I have no idea. If I tried bringing them in as prisoners, that would only end badly. Any ideas?" He looked around the group, trying to find someone who could help.
"Well... I might have an idea." Maryse said, extremely reluctant to actually voice it.
Everyone stared back at her, urging her to continue.
"Well- and I'm not saying this is the only way or anything- what if you claimed the person you took in to be your, well, mate? Kane has no right to argue with that."
Every face lit up but one; Zack had an idea as to where this was headed.
"That's a great idea, Maryse!" Rebecca praised her friend.
"Only thing that remains is who will go with him," Kevin said calmly.
"Well- and I'm only saying this because she came up with the idea- I think Maryse should come with me."
No one made any move to object, so they set to planning out their strategy.
Zack shied away from the group, not wanting to know any details about Maryse pretending to be in love with Alberto.
"Hurts, doesn't it?"
He spun around at the werewolf's voice, a questioning look on his face.
Hunter laughed at his naivety.
"It hurts to know that someone you care deeply about doesn't feel the same way for you."
Zack opened his mouth to question his source, but Hunter held up his hand.
"Don't. Don't deny it. The point is, I know what it's like. And I know who can help you."
The human's face lit up at this.
"You do?" The werewolf nodded. "Who?"
"Come with me and I'll show you."
He didn't hesitate a moment before following Hunter into a dark, secluded alley.
"Where are we going?" The hunter asked, getting a bit frightened.
"Well, well, well. If it isn't Zack Ryder."
Zack's eyes went wide as he immediately recognized the voice.
Hunter smiled widely from his place beside Kane, pleased with the entrapment of the young hunter.
"My friend here tells me you're in need of some help." The vampire answered, gesturing toward the werewolf beside him.
"Not from you I'm not."
"Shame. Cause that means I have to kill you."
That was the only warning Zack got before Kane pounced on him, sending them both to the ground.
In less than a second, his fangs were latched into the hunter's throat, sucking him dry.
The vampire stood, wiping his mouth on his sleeve while grinning sadistically.
"It's such a shame. He could have been a nice addition."
Not a trace of guilt lingered in Kane's voice as he turned to the werewolf beside him.
"Get back to the others before they get suspicious. I'll contact you before the week is out."
Hunter nodded, finding his way out of the alley and back to the others.
Oops. I did a bad thing. So much for the Ryder Revolution. Anyways, I know this one was nearly half the length of the first chapter, but lemme know what you think.
