Take a Bite Outta Crime – Part 40

Now that they’ve gotten what information they can from the other vampire, the four of them prepare to save Tommy. Will they find him in time? Or is it already too late?

 “Had to vamp out, huh?” Margo said calmly.

Kirk nodded once more. Scott told her what he’d seen. Having been unconscious for most of the fight, he didn’t tell her about that. Seeing the bruises disappearing on Kirk’s face, she reached her own conclusions.

“The elevator isn’t working,” Sandra said, touching the cut on Scott’s brow.

“Then we take the stairs,”Margo replied.

“It’s sixty-seven stories!” Sandra exclaimed.

“Did you try the freight elevator?” Kirk asked.

“Is there one?” Scott queried.

“Place this size, has to be. Rich people don’t want to see the hired help. Probably this way.” He pointed down the hallway.

“Have you been here before?”

Kirk shrugged, shaking his head. “Nope. Acoustics are different down that hallway.”

“And you saw the sign,” Margo said with a smirk, pointing to the freight elevator sign on the wall.

Kirk winked. “Of course, but where’s the fun if I spoil it for you?”

Fortunately, the freight elevator was working. Unfortunately, it stopped at nearly every floor. Fortunately, there was no one in the parking garage. Unfortunately, Kirk’s rental car and the unmarked police car were both heavily damaged.

“How did they know which is yours?” Sandra asked.

Kirk tapped his rather impressive looking nose. “Superior sense of smell.”

“That, and the Barr Nunne brochures on the front seat. Kirk, quite trying to out vamp us!” Sandra said with a grin. She punched his arm playfully.

“Seriously, even without that, there’s a faint odor of Margo’s perfume and my cologne that would alert them to the right car.”

“So, we’re dealing with vampires here?” Sandra was stunned. “I thought they were vampire hunters—humans?”

“We were wrong,” Kirk said. “This must be the work of a rival coven.”
