March 1017 Midnight
A thud awoke Henri from his slumber as he wearily and cautiously opened the door as he stared into the darkness a sigh of relief waved through his body as he looked at the door to find a note on his door with a dagger stuck to it. Henri raised an eyebrow to see the paper was handwritten as looked at it
To whom it may concern
meet me where you foul beasts met
a flood of nerves run through his body the only people to have called them foul beasts was hunters and the brotherhood as he grabbed his cloak he moved into the street making his way towards the Old apple inn as he made his way towards the inn he deliberately diverted the alleyways of the inn making sure there was no ambush waiting once entered as he returned to the point made his way indoors.
The inn was a dark dreary place drunk sprawled over the place and the whiff of blood from fights hitting his nostrils as he witnessed a man sat in the corner as he waved him over and beckoned and he sat in front of him " Spiridon was very much human from what he could smell and see as he began to speak he felt anguish but also malice in the man's voice as he mentioned there will be a killing when the queen does her visiting the people route he placed a note with the name Christian on the envelope the information you asked for the man rose he just said "I don't like your species but I do not like unjust killings " before leaving quickly. Soon after the man left Henri stared at the sealed note as he rose to his feet as he picked up the note he knew Christian was staying close by in a hotel leaving quickly through a back door note in hand he made it quickly through the street watching the crowds as the hotel came into view the stable boy came out of the front door “ boy “ Henri stood in front of him “ this is for Christian he is staying in your premises go give it to him immediately “ he handed the boy a small pouch of coins before moving back into the darkness of the street
a few days had passed as the sun had set an hour or so ago as Henri looked out at the cloudy sky it wasn’t going to rain but it made it extra dark as Henri turned listening to the plans Vladimir was setting even though he lead the group plans to want him so he let others come up with them as he ended his talk Henri Approached the table the room became suddenly turned tense “ we know the queen is in danger we don’t know how what and who will attempt to harm her if something happens a few of us investigate with the guard the rest watch the queen “ he to look at the vampires gathered a few that Henri had recruited his self and others descendants of the original order “ our duty is to protect the queen even if it costs us everything Stefan Vladimir get going with your teams she will be heading out soon “
An hour or so later Henri found himself running along the rooftops the wind flowing through his hair and cloak as they jumped distances to and from tiles till they reached the area the queen would meet people as they wrapped themself in there clay coloured cloaks to blend into the rooftops he turned his head as Grigore asked “how did he get the plans for the route “ Henri did not go into detail just mentioning “ Neculai is on the inside “ he sat his eyes scanning the crowds and the rooftops for out of place people as the crowds began to muster in drabs the members approached nodding to the spot Henri was at as he nodded in response waiting he felt the drop of rain beginning to hit his cloak
