Brother, I have what you
are looking for.”


Whatever you’re selling,
I’m not buying”


You look for the Seelie
King’s mistress. Until today she was staying with my neighbors. I
followed her here, but she left with a woman in a car.
Unfortunately I do not own a car.”


Who was the woman she left
with?”


That will cost you.” Blake
was becoming frustrated with the games the young Fae was playing.
He looked around and saw that there was no one around and grabbed
the Fae by the neck. He held him against the side of a brick
building off the ground.


Tell me what I want to
know or I send you home,
in
pieces
.”


F….ine.” He choked out.
Blake put him down so he could talk.


She left with a female
Werecat with violet eyes and streaky hair. That’s all I know I
swear.”


Go, and tell no one you
saw me.”

The Fae ran away quickly. Blake was trying
to figure out what his next move should be. The Fae in the area
were not as helpful as he thought they would be. Normally when he
hunted Fae they were the hard criminals most Fae were happy to turn
in and get rid of.

*****

Adrian awoke as his Fae portal became
activated. He was dressed only in boxer shorts as he walked to the
living room when Queen Brianna appeared.


Enforcer Adrian I am Queen
Brianna of the grand Seelie court.”


My Queen please excuse my
poor appearance; this is quite unexpected.”


Your appearance is of no
consequence to me.” The queen looked quite proper in her all white
gown. She had Pink hair and blue eyes, and her skin was light and
shimmery.


How may I be of service
Seelie Queen?” Adrian hated how fake he had to sound due to
protocol but he had to do what his job required.


Adrian you are an
excellent enforcer so I was surprised you have not captured my
prisoner yet.”


I apologize my Queen, she
is a sneaky one. I am working very hard to capture her.”


I sincerely hope so, she
is not what she seems. Do not let her innocent appearance fool you.
Capture her and you will be rewarded. Fail and you will be sorry,”
the Queen said as she smiled a sinister smile. The Queen gave
Adrian a nod and the glass was once again clear. It was only 8:00
a.m., still early. He quickly took a shower and dressed in jeans
and a t-shirt. He grabbed a piece of fruit as he ran out the door.
It was time to meet with Kieran and find out what his plan
was.

Chapter 8

Cam walked into Gretchen’s house trailing
behind her. She stopped in the living room where she spotted a
decorative glass and began staring at it. She touched it and was
shocked that a Fae portal was in Gretchen’s house.


How do you like it? It was
gift from my grandmother.”


Your grandmother is Fae?”
Cam asked.


Oh no, just a Werecat like
me.”


Gretchen you do know this
is a Fae communication portal, right?”


What are you talking
about; it’s just a piece of decorative glass.” Gretchen didn’t know
what to think about this; maybe it just looked like a Fae
glass.


Fae use special pieces of
glass to communicate, this is one of them.”


Why would my Grandmother
send me a Fae glass?”


I don’t know but nothing
about you makes any sense.” Cam started walking away when Monroe
padded up to her and sat by her feet. She just stared at the cat
intensely. She got a feeling he was more than an ordinary
cat.


That’s my cat Monroe.
C’mon let’s get you settled in your room.” Gretchen led Cam through
the house, past a hallway, to the spare room. It had white walls
with a full size bed but nothing else.


Sorry it’s so empty I just
moved in and barely got my own room decorated. At least this way
you can pick out whatever you like.”


It’s perfect. Thank you,
Gretchen.” Cam gave Gretchen a big hug and just hung onto her.
Gretchen peeled her off and gave her a warm smile. Gretchen didn’t
know why, but she was very happy Cam was living with her. It felt
like a long lost sister had finally come home. Gretchen had noticed
a lot of strange feelings lately, things that didn’t make any
sense.


Well I’ll leave you to get
settled. If you need me I’ll be in the living room.”


Thanks again, for helping
me.”

Gretchen left Cam’s room and found Monroe
sitting in the hallway waiting.


Come on Monroe leave her
to get settled. Want some tuna?”


I’ll eat it but I still
don’t like what’s going on here,”
Monroe
thought to himself

As Gretchen walked into the kitchen to open
a can of tuna for Monroe she couldn’t shake the feeling he wasn’t
very happy about their new roommate.


Don’t tell me you’re upset
about Cam, she needed me. You’ll see once you get used to her
you’ll love her too.”

Unlikely
.

Gretchen gave the food to Monroe and walked
into the living room. It was still early and Gretchen was still
sleepy so she decided to read her book for a bit. She was lying on
the couch when she heard a knock at the door.

For the love of the goddess
what now?
Gretchen slowly got up from the
couch as the knocking continued at her front door. She opened her
door to find her older brother Richard at the door. He wasn’t very
tall, only 5’8, but what he lacked in height, he made up in
muscles. He gave her his all too familiar charming smile – the one
that made all the girls swoon.


Richard!”


The one and
only.”

Gretchen moved aside as he entered the house
and plopped on the couch, making himself comfortable. Richard
looked around taking in the house his baby sister now lived in.
“Nice house. Looks much better than the last time I was here.”


Cut the crap Rich. Why are
you really here? It’s only 10 a.m. You haven’t gotten up this early
since we were kittens.”


Gretchen, I need a place
to crash for a while. Mom is making me crazy with this entire find
a mate business, I can’t take it anymore.”


Rich, I love you but I
moved out to get some privacy. I can finally have a normal social
life without having my dates threatened.”


Hey remember Norman? I
scared him so bad he wet himself and ran home.” Richard
laughed.


That is not funny, I
really liked him.” Gretchen pouted.


He was a dork; he turned
into a fluffy white cat. What kind of man turns into a pretty cat
like that?”


If this is your attempt at
convincing me, you are failing miserably.”


I’m sorry Gretch, will you
forgive me and give me a chance? I really need to get away from
mom. Wait what is that I smell?”


My new roommate Cam, and
no she isn’t available.”


Says you, she smells so
sweet. I feel the pull Gretchen, I feel it.” He said with his eyes
wide and with fear. He wasn’t ready it, was too soon.

Cam came out from the
hallway shyly. As she walked over to Richard he froze and just
looked at her longingly. He saw that she was very pregnant but to
him that only meant that she was able to have more of
his
children. When a
male Werecat felt the mating pull it was more powerful than
anything ever felt before. The females had it a little easier, for
them the pull built slowly over time but eventually they would feel
it just as strongly.


You must be
Cam.”


Yes, I am.”


I am Richard, Gretchen’s
older brother.” Richard looked at Cam and wanted to touch her so
badly, to stroke her beautiful red hair. To feel it fall onto his
face as she rode him until she found her pleasure.


It's nice to meet you
Richard.”


Gretchen, I’m starving.
You know the pregnancy. Could I make myself a snack?”

Gretchen pushed Richard back on the couch
and led Cam toward the kitchen. She opened the fridge rummaging
through the few contents.


This is your home now so
just help yourself to anything you need. I'm not much of a cook but
there is some fruit and left over spaghetti.”


I can handle it from here,
thanks Gretchen.”


Trust me you don’t want
anything Gretchen cooked.” Richard said as he walked into the
kitchen. “Let me make you something. I'm an excellent
cook.”


Please, don't trouble
yourself. I can make my own food. You should finish your visit,”
said Cam, uncomfortably.


C'mon Rich, let's leave
Cam so she can make a snack.” Gretchen grabbed her brother by the
shoulder and dragged him back to the living room.


Rich, you need to go back
home, now!”


Please, Gretch I can feel
she's the one for me. I need to be near her even if it's just as a
friend.” Richard looked at Gretchen with pleading eyes. She had
never seen her brother looking so panicked.


Fine, you can stay. But
you better not make Cam uncomfortable or I will throw you out on
your ass so fast….”


Thank you, Gretch you
won’t regret it.” Richard began hugging her and kissed her on the
cheek. “I'm going to go home and pack. I'll see you tonight, Cam.”
He yelled as he left.

I'm already regretting it.

*****

Adrian arrived at Kieran's home. He was
about to knock when the door opened. Kieran stood at the door and
smiled. Adrian stared at him. He looked like Kieran but had an
innocence that Kieran didn’t have. The Kieran look-alike put his
hand out to Adrian.


Welcome, good friend. I am
Kieran; it’s nice to meet you.”


It's nice to meet you
Kieran, I am Adrian. Could I come in and talk for a minute?” Adrian
said, pretending to be meeting Kieran for the first
time.


Oh, yes of course. Come
in, come in.”

Adrian entered the house of the fake Kieran.
He had never been to the house before but everything seemed to be
in order. The house was a collection of human and Fae antiques. The
couch was the only thing in the room not an antique. He could tell
a Fae had made it. It was red and had the comforting magic
attached. He would have loved to own one himself but they were very
expensive and only a few Fae in the human world made them.


So Adrian, my new friend
what can I do for you?”


You can start by telling
me who you are. I know you’re not the king.”

Out from one of the bedrooms stepped the
real Kieran.


It’s okay brother we can
trust him. This is my twin Cayden. He is part of my ingenious plan.
We will give the queen what she wants most, me, then I can finally
disappear with Cam.”

Adrian looked at Kieran and Cayden — they
were definitely twins. He couldn’t find any differences between
them. Cayden had an innocence that Kieran lacked. If he could see
it surely the Queen would also notice it.


And you think your brother
will fool the Queen? I wasn’t fooled and I don’t even know you that
well.”


It will work, especially
with your help.”

Adrian sat back on the couch making himself
comfortable. He was hoping Kieran’s plan would be a good one. If
not they would both be dead.


I’m listening. What is
your brilliant plan?”


My brother will replace me
as King. He looks like me but as you point out the personality
differences are easy to detect and there is no way he could know
everything I know. So what we will do is stage an accident, and
tell the Queen I have lost my memory. My brother will make it look
like I’m falling in love with the Queen all over again. And since I
would have no memory of Cam, she would most likely call you
off.”

Adrian sat thinking about all the ways this
plan could fail. It had a chance but he just wasn’t sure his life
was worth risking. “It’s not a bad plan. You know the risk if this
fails?” Adrian asked.

Kieran and Cayden both nodded their heads at
the same time.


I have been a prisoner in
my cabin home more years than I care to think about. I would rather
die than to continue that way. My brother finally found a way to
get me out, I think I could be happy with the Queen,” said Cayden
adamantly.


Fine, against my better
judgment I will go along with this insane plan.” Kieran and Cayden
both smiled at the same time. All three of the men stood up and
shook on it.


We will contact you soon
with the details of the plan.” Kieran said as he walked Adrian to
the front door. Travel safely enforcer Adrian.”

Chapter 9

It was almost 10:30 p.m. After the morning
excitement Gretchen decided just to have a lazy day at home with
Cam. Cam spent a lot of time in the kitchen eating; Gretchen was
amazed someone so small could eat so much. They even had to call
Richard to bring back some groceries on his way back from breaking
the news to mamma cat.
