Shia kicked the door closed with one boot, hands full of grocery bags, keys in her mouth. She mumbled at Frankie as she poked her head out of the home office. Frankie grinned, interpreting the grunts as the request for help that they were, “I can help, one sec.” She disappeared back into the room …

Pattinson straightened their suit jacket as they got out of their car. Sniffing the air, they sighed as the scent of blood permeated the miscellaneous smells of a quiet neighbourhood.

Pru frowned into her rearview as the banging from the trunk became louder.
