Two days later, Vince woke up at 5:30am and went for short run and stopped off at his horse men gym.
Eddie Williams a half giant and brother horse man took one look at him and shook his head. “What the fuck is up your ass?” He asked.
“I got a fucking dual against a psychopath who wants to make my client his breeding cow. I keep having intense sexual dreams about my client. I’m going to need to refresh my weapons skills and sweat off whatever the hell is wrong with me. Can you help me out?”
“Shit. Some old world bullshit. Come on I got a training room booked for the day.” He said and turned and started walking with Vince following him.
Eddie looked him over. “Is your brother at least backing you up?”
Vince shook his head. “Something about the case fucked with him. He’s on the road. I’ve been trying to get in contact with him but no go.”
Eddie stopped and stared at him. “Are you sure he’s missing and not been taken by the assholes you up against?”
Vince froze. He hadn’t thought of that. He should have after meeting Slicer. “I don’t know. Shit. Something about this whole case is fucking with me to. I’m missing something.”
Eddie shook his head. “Trainning will help you think it through and relieve your stress.”
It was late in the morning when Vince finally got into work the next day. Andrew and Mini looked angry and then concerned at the sight of him.
Andrew frowned at him. “Where the fuck have you been?”
“Weapons trainning.” Vince said. “Slicer’s people sent any messages to the firm.”
Andrew’s face grimanced but he nodded stiffly. He turned waving a hand as he went to the meeting room. A small crowd was gathered around the open doors staring inside.
Andrew waved them away. He pointed inside. Vince saw a large bastard sword on the table. Vince walked in picking it up and sighed.
“Damn it.” Vince said softly.
Andrew shook his head. “You knew this was coming. To late for regrets.”
Vince handled the sword easily. “I wonder about that. I need to have a talk with Mr. Ross. Can you get in contact with him?”
Andrew frowned at him. “You have his number and your lead counsel. Why didn’t you call him up?”
Vince shook his head staring at the blade. “I’ve already tried that. He’s evading my calls and I can’t get lead on where the fuck he is right now. I need you to get your hunters on finding him.”
“Shit. You should have told me sooner.. What the fuck are you worried about?” Andrew asked.
“Beyond getting killed in a challenge match? There is to much shit we don’t know about this case. Illegal Orc practices. Pete is missing. I feel like shit and I can’t stop thinking about fucking Miss Ross. I think Ross might have some information to add. I got a question for you though. Is there any sort of enchantment that is given to the champion for the alliance prize?”
Andrew shook his head. “No seductions or enchantment spells. I made that clear when it was written up and made sure our people looked over the contract for any I didn’t see. Why the fuck are you asking?”
“I saw our client Miss Ross again and got un pleasant desire to fuck her on her parent’s lawn. It took to much out of me resisting the desire and I can tell you it wasn’t normal for me. We need to find Ross.” Vince said.
“Shit. I’m on it. Stay away from the Orc girl!” Andrew commanded.
Vince gave him a look that made Andrew step back. “Fucking shit.” He cursed and shook himself. “I’m going to my office and try and get in contact with Pete and work on the case.” He said and forced himself to turn and back back to his office.
Vince walked to his office with Mini close behind him. He noticed how bad he was looking by the pale expressions on his co-workers. He dropped down into his chair and tried to breath out the hard on he had that felt like it would kill him.
Vince felt Mini watching him. He didn’t look up at her. There was no way he was getting much done today until he got what ever the hell that was happening to him under control. He needed not to be around any female. “Mini. I need you to find Pete. I don’t know how you can or why this is happening to me but I need to know that he’s safe and just ignoring me and not…please just find him.” He said.
“I’m on it.” Mini said and closed the door behind her locking it.
