For the rest of the day, Alex and his team studied the reports from sighting and trained. Alex wanted to be out in the field, but he could understand the chief's hesitance. They were still a new team, and it was probably a good Idea to keep one team on the base for backup, in case things did not go well. He changed into regular clothes, and put his contacts in. He would need them for working in the field, if called in.


Meanwhile, teams A and B investigated the site where the man had been killed. They tried using their telepath to track the vampires, but he came up blank, since they were not living creatures. That told them that they were dealing with the real thing, and not a mimic. They resorted to conventional methods, searching on foot.

Coming up empty handed, the teams returned to the base around nightfall.


That night, a figure dressed in all black disabled the alarm system expertly. Jumping to the roof, he picked up the body he had tranquilized. Opening the trapdoor, he dropped down to the floor without making a sound. Punching in a code, he entered the examination room and placed the still form on one of the beds, strapping it down securely.

Jumping up through the roof again, he closed the door and locked it. He reset the alarm, then disappeared into the night.


The next morning, the captain called Alex into his office. When the young man arrived, he smiled at him and offered a seat.

"What did you need, Captain?" Alex stifled a yawn.

The captain stared down at the table for a long moment before answering him. This was not going to be an easy conversation. He sighed, then looked at the younger man. "Alex," he began softly, using the agent's first name, which was uncommon. "...I have been slacking on the rules, as you know. I would like to let things stay as they are, but I simply cannot. The station would come down too hard on me."

Alex tensed, shaking his head. He knew what this talk was about, and he did not want to hear it.

The captain caught the young man's eye. "Like I said, I have been bending the rules. There cannot be an existing relationship between a leader and his subordinate. The only one they may have a relationship with is their second, who is almost on equal ground. It has been a standing regulation for as long as the department has been open. Some agents have chosen to ignore this rule and keep things quiet, but I do not advise that. When the department finds out, they could terminate you both, and I would hate to lose you. If I could, I would change that particular rule, since your personal life should be separate."

Alex covered his face with his hands, not wanting to show the captain the hurt. He had been afraid of this, thinking about it all year. Finally lowering his hands, he slammed them down on the table. "Damn it, captain. If you thought it was still an issue, why the hell did you let it go on this long! You can't ask me to do this," his last words came out as more of a plea, than a demand.

"Alex, I know you love Bailey, and it pains me to have to do this," the older man said with genuine concern. "I am so sorry I let it go on. I just couldn't break it off right at the beginning, like I should have. It's either this, or a transfer."

Alex swallowed hard, glaring at the man he viewed as a father figure. "Fine, I'll see what Bailey wants to do. He should have a say in this, too. I'll be the one to break his heart and possibly chase him away for good," he stood up. "I think we're done here." Alex hurried over to the door, before the captain could stop him. Stepping outside of the office, Alex didn't stop until he had reached the garage. Jumping on his bike, he left the base.


While Alex was gone, the captain found out about the vampire in the lab. Alarmed, he called a meeting without Alex.

"There have been some new developments. Last night someone tripped our alarms and handed a vampire over to us," the captain smiled. "While I appreciate their assistance, we do not know where it is coming from. That is where you guys come in. I need teams A and B to continue working on the investigation of the killings. Team C will be tracking down this mystery helper of ours. The reason I am sending team C in is because we need speed to catch him. He is obviously fast, and agile. That is where Bailey will come in."

Bailey's head snapped up, nervous. He did not say anything, but just looked back down, swallowing hard. He turned to Will. "Where's Alex. I haven't been able to get a hold of him all morning."

Will glanced at the brown haired man, looking away almost immediately. "He went for a ride. I'll let him know, when he gets back."

"Okay," Bailey shrugged. "I guess we should go get ready, then."


When Alex got back, Will took him aside. "Are you okay?"

Alex glared at him. "Don't ask me that, right now. Was that all you needed?"

Will sighed deeply, smiling at his brother. He hated seeing him in pain. "The captain is sending us in on this vampire case. Apparently, we have help..." he continued to fill Alex in on the situation.

Alex stared at him blankly. "Okay, I'll get ready. Tell the others to be ready in fifteen minutes," he said, hurrying to his room to change.
