The reporters looked at her curiously. Skye bit her lip as she looked down at JC.
“ JC, I have no idea what they’re talking about,” Skye said, faking innocence.
“ Sure you don’t,” the reporter said.
“ What’s your name?” JC asked.
“ Richard,” he answered.
“ Richard, leave Skye alone. I don’t like it when people accuse my girl of things. They usually end up in the hospital,” JC threatened, playing the part of a protective boyfriend.
“ I think we have enough,” Richard gave a smug smile, “ I’ll be back, Skye. I have a score to settle with you.”
The reporters moved out and Skye sighed with relief.
“ Thanks, Jace,” Skye said, “ That was too close.”
“ Where’s Justin?” Lance asked.
“ Right here,” Skye put her arm on something a bit higher than her.
Justin slowly began to reappear, showing that her arm had been on his shoulder.
“ Skye, that was too close,” Justin said.
“ I know. We have to leave. I suggest you 4 do the same. If anyone on the other side saw the news, they’ll be out to get you and the result could be, well, deadly,” Skye told the other 4.
“ Can we just go with you guys?” Joey asked.
“ It’s not that simple. I can get in a lot of trouble for hosting mortals, but then again, I’m not going back to the grounds, so it doesn’t matter,” Skye answered, “ Go get packing, I have to get us tickets for a flight tonight.”
2 eyes stared at Skye’s back angrily.
“ She’s says she’s not going back, sir. What are we gonna do?” he asked.
“ We’re going to get Justin then,” the man answered.
“ Yes sir, I’ll go get him now,” the tall man moved towards the door.
Skye stood outside, waiting for the other 4 to pack up. She could sense a vampire on her turf and was going to protect her prize with her life.
“ Skye, Trainer sent me,” Robert moved out from the shadows.
“ Well, he’s not getting Justin. You just made a stupid move,” Skye pulled out a small hand gun, “ Say a prayer, Rob.”
“ You just made a stupid move, Skye,” Robert snapped.
Dozens of vampires that Skye recognized stepped from the shadows with guns pointed at her.
“ Trainer sent us for Justin. We’re going to get him. Take us to him, now,” Robert pushed her inside.
Skye gave a small smile as she recited an invisibility spell.
“ Skye-” JC stopped, seeing the guns, “ Never mind.”
“ Have you seen Justin, JC?” Skye asked, a smug smile on her face.
“ No, I just saw him, but he’s good at disappearing,” JC had seen Justin disappear in front of his own eyes.
“ Where is he Skye? I know that he may be immortal, but you aren’t,” Robert pushed the cold metal into her back.
Robert felt 2 arms grab him. He fired aimlessly as it attacked him.
“ Get out y’all. Tell Trainer, he’s entering a losing battle,” Skye grabbed the gun, “ Don’t shoot either.”
One by one, they each left until only Robert remained.
“ I thought I could trust you, Robert. I guess I learned a lesson the hard way. Slayers work alone,” Skye got up in his face, “ Go on and get your pitiful face out of here.”
Robert gave her an evil look before walking out.
Skye held her hand out. Justin reappeared as he gave her a high five.
“ We make a good team,” Skye looked up at him, “ Are the others ready?”
“ Ready, guys?” Justin yelled.
“ Yep, we’re coming,” JC threw a few bags down the stairs, “ I’ll tell Tyler to check up on the house.”
“ Then, let’s go. I got a SUV, so hopefully we’ll all fit in it,” Skye grabbed her keys, “ And we’ll stop at a club before hand, Justin.”
“ Good, I’m starving,” Justin sat in the passenger seat.
Skye pealed off towards the lit up city of Orlando.
