[complete] Hounded

Postby twufoo » Thu Jun 20, 2013 10:20 am

The first night of the full moon had just passed, and in the morning after a body was found in the fields surrounding the sleepy Harwick village, mauled. Within three hours, the news had passed through the right channels, the Ministry alerted, and a cross-departmental team from the DRCMC and the DMAC dispatched to address and contain the issue. In the same time frame, three more bodies were found. If the werewolf wasn't found soon, Harwick was looking at three more nights of maulings

And so, parts of the Werewolf Capture Unit, the Obliviator team, and a single Muggle Liaison officer spent the day in Harwick, interviewing witnesses, altering their memories, smoothing over relations with the locals, and investigating the possible identity and whereabouts of the werewolf. During the investigation, one of the townsfolk happened to mention an exotic, high-cheeked woman who matched the description of Sonya Shepard, a known werewolf and associate of Fenrir Greyback's who had been in hiding ever since the end of the Second War.

She lived alone in a shack at the outskirts of town. The Werewolf Capture Unit apparated just outside the shack's protection charms and broke in, wands at the ready. However, she was nowhere to be found. After they had secured the premises, the tag-alongs from the DMAC came in and started poking around.

Ellery and his team were searching through the main room for clues while Bee and Sebastian milled about nearby. The main room had a single dining table, an antique standing mirror, and several shelves that were sparsely populated with books and various animal figurines. Despite the dilapidated appearance of the shack, the inside was well-maintained with little feminine touches. Several vases of wildflowers decorated the room, and a bowl of colorful mints sat on the dining table.

A faint trail of blood that had obviously been cleaned over several times led into the room from the front steps of the house. A small kitchen, closet, and bedroom connected to the main room.

LaForche was going through the shelves; Seashack had the closet. They were to alert him if they found anything even remotely noteworthy.

It was doubtful, but possible.

Cromox was in the bedroom, unceremoniously rummaging -- under the bed, on and in the nightstand, then the bureau (unless any of those things turned anything up, in which case he stopped there).

Bee had been very sympathetic with the people they interviewed. She seemed to have a talent for bringing smiles - however small or thin they might have been - to the worried townsfolk... she was, however, completely useless for anything else. As soon as they had made it for the supposed werewolf's home, she was practically hanging off of Simon, clinging to an arm as she looked around, frantically, frightened. She kept murmuring useless things like "don't touch that don't go towards that dark area let's just stay right here and not move do you have your wand please don't let anything unnatural happen to me" lowly as her eyes whipped around.

After the investigation went on for a while, though, she seemed to relax a bit and eventually went to wandering around by herself, curiously drawn to the flowers and their vases. She leaned forward to smell them.

Sebastian just smiled tightly and tried reassure Bee with more conviction than he really had, saying chipper things like, "Relax! These are professionals we're working with!" and "I'm sure they know what they're doing!"

After Bee wandered away from his arm, he blew a little sigh of relief and shadowed her where she went. You know... in case something happened.


Bee:

The flowers were bright pink and smelled heavenly! They were in a pretty cornflower blue vase.


Ellery:

The bureau contained mostly women’s clothes, though there were a couple changes of men’s clothes too. The underwear section contained a colorful, lacy selection of matched sets. A journal sat inside the nightstand drawer, and was written in with neat, feminine penmanship. Next to it was a small bag that contained various herbal oils and essences. A wand had rolled underneath the bed, a couple feet in.

While Cromox was looking through the room, LaForche came back from the closet with two pairs of boots--a men’s size 10, and a women’s size 4 ½. Both had damp mud stuck deep in their grooves, not more than a few days old. "Found these."

Sebastian's lips twitched into a small smile, and he obediently leaned forward into the flowers. He inhaled, and his brows raised pleasantly. "They're nice."

His brows knit together, crinkling his forehead, and he shrugged, "Uh, pink ones? I have no idea."

Cromox took the wand, the herbs, and the journal. He was about to start flipping through the journal when LaForche came in. He stood and went over. "Has it rained recently?"

"Maybe we can ask the werewolf what they are after we find her," Sebastian suggested with wry optimism.


Ellery:

LaForche scratched his head, "It's been a bit drizzly the all this week, I think."

Bee tilted her head at Sebastian, then gave him a light, harmless, playful smack over the chest.

"You're silly. Maybe there are some outside." She turned and stepped out the door.

Ellery:

LaForche blew a low whistle, and furrowed his brow as he tried to remember them all. "Let's see... any of the other guys in Cerberus--so, Marlborough, Adderly, Beaumont, Blackstripe... shit, I'm missing one--"

"Taliesin Silverling!" Seashack yelled from the kitchen.

"Oh yeah... Silverling."

"And Beaumont's dead!"

LaForche scratched his temple. "Okay, so not him."

Cerberus had been a militant werewolf rights group with a history of causing trouble for the Ministry. They mainly limited themselves to acts of arson and disturbing the peace; however, during the Second War, their actions became increasingly violent and militaristic, and like Fenrir Greyback, they had sided with Voldemort.

Bee:

Sebastian exhaled, short and sharp, when she smacked him, and his lips curled into a dimpled grin. He followed her outside without thinking. Like a puppy.

Outside, a roughly hewn flagstone path led around to the side of the house. Fluffy tufts of woolly thyme grew between the stones. Statues of small, white rabbits were placed in the greenery near the path at regular intervals.

The path led into a large garden, where it became sinuous and weaved between flower banks bursting with color--predominantly blue, pink, and purple, but there were patches of sunny yellows as well. The rabbit statues continued onward. The dizzying array of flowers had all been allowed to grow in their natural habit with only the lightest touch of pruning. It looked wild, untamed, and beautiful.

"Oh look over there!" Bee stepped along enthusiastically, taking Sebastian's hand and leading him towards the garden - with him around, nothing bad could happen, right? He'd always take care of her. He was good at that. As she went into the fields of flowers, she released him and began to step through it, palms open at her sides to graze them as she wandered aimlessly through it. "Wow, these are so beautiful." She laughed girlishly.

His grin was wide, from ear to ear, and he was looking at Bee when he agreed, "They are."

"And we don't know if she worked particularly closely with any one of them?" he asked absently, as he flipped through the journal.

Ellery:

LaForche's brow furrowed. "No, I don't think so."

The journal was largely about mundane things--cooking, gardening, the people she met in town. Occasionally, there was a reference to "M" and "K" and "F."

"Hey boss! I found something!" Seashack yelled from the kitchen. He was digging under the cabinets when Ellery arrived and gestured to them. "Here."

Inside, the cabinet was an extensive set of equipment for potions as well as various components. Most notably among them were several dried pressings of aconite.


Bee:

Sebastian stuffed his hands in his pockets and looked around, both scanning the area and taking in its beauty. When Bee had about half a bouquet completed, he pointed off along the path and called, "Hey! Isn't that the pink one you liked?"

Back along the path, before it curved out of sight behind large azaleas and spindly yellow witch hazel, a short leg like a keyhole led into a circle of rounded flower banks covered with blue flowers and the pink ones that Bee had seen before. Like many other areas along the path, there was a small rabbit statue hiding under a tuft of pink flowers.

"Oh, yes! Yeah!" Bee immediately diverted for it, laughing as she skipped the way there, the edges of her skirt catching pollen as she made her way through the field. Noticing the statue, she bent down to touch it. "Ooh, this is so cute."
