Halloween Bash 2018: Always Working

Recommended Posts

Charlotte and Dagonet had a bit of an awkward relationship since they took down those blood ring thugs. After he had come over to her house, her relentless flirting eventually worked and he kissed her before he fled. She had to admit she liked the kiss but ever since he was even colder toward her than normal. So when they were sent out on assignment to go investigate a creature in the woods in Dawnbreak she knew it was going to be tense but she tried to keep up pretenses.

They had arrived around ten AM and they had a plan to leave around three but those plans would be ruined by the creature itself.

So after they parked they started the hike up the trail to look for anything out of the ordinary, any sort of odd things. She intentionally knocked her shoulder playfully into him and gave him a smile as they walked.

Ever since that one slip up Dag had felt tense and uncomfortable every time he was in the office with Charlotte. He'd taken to avoiding it as much as possible, but that was a lot easier said than done in their division. Why the hell had he done something so stupid? 

They both seemed to be pretending it had never happened. Dag wasn't really sure if that made it better or worse. 

Of course, while things were weird, their superior saw fit to assign them with some investigation in Dawnbreak. That meant hours stuck together in a car with both her... and that damn cat. Unlike most the thing didn't spaz out in a vehicle - took it more in stride like a dog and made himself at home while shedding everywhere. 

Dag was still trying to brush the hair off himself long after they'd checked into their rooms to leave the cat and gotten out to the trail. As amusing a gift as it had been at the time it sure had backfired on him. He was distracted by all that when Chuck bumped in against him, "So do you have any idea what we're out here looking for?" he asked as he looked over at her, "The file they gave us was about useless," Dag tacked on a little grudgingly. After they'd busted up that blood ring he'd honestly expected to have better cases come funneling in.

Dag answered with an annoyed frown - since the incident he was even more too-work-oriented than usual, "Seriously," he answered, "whatever the hell they sent us out here after must be more a problem than a hairy mountain ape."

“Oh come on Dag. Lighten up a little. There have been people going missing and rumors of a deer headed thing. So we’re looking for signs of whatever it is,” she said to him with an exasperated almost wilted sigh. Everything had been different since they kissed. She wished either it had went further most of the time but moments like this she wished it never happened at all.

Of course being told to lighten up had about the opposite effect on the already high strung agent. Dag huffed softly and rolled his shoulders. He didn't particularly like being out with so little information. 

"Did you ever manage to get a hold of that new Sheriff or his Deputy?" he asked after a moment. Apparently it had been the death of the former, long standing Sheriff that had drawn the agency's attention to the town in the first place.

"Some kind of deer, probably," Dagonet shrugged in response, though he didn't sound entirely convinced. What remained visible beneath the gathering snow was a cloven hoofed shape, but there was something not quite right about it. For that reason he didn't protest when Chuck decided to press on. He just shifted his pack against his back and trudged along with her. 

By the time they were ten minutes up the trail the snow was coming down even heavier. Fat, round flakes were drifting over them and the ground was almost entirely covered save where patches of brush and thicket were still preventing it. Dag eventually reached for his cell to take a look at the weather forecast - he was starting to sense that maybe they needed to leave - but he only had one bar and the web page he pulled up just kept spinning the loading indicator until he gave up.

Charlotte and Dag would walk for a long time as they continued to find odd things but eventually the snow was covering everything and it was hard to see in front of them, or anywhere for that matter. “Ummm. Do you remember which way we came from?”
