Chase

One of the last two natural-born Demon Hunters left in the world, Chase is part of a team that includes her father Caleb and her boyfriend Alex.

They are intent on capturing an enemy who escaped the trap they'd set for several members of his kind.

They want one of them alive to see if they have any information about who killed two of their allies and the whereabouts of Jak the other Demon Hunter.

However tensions between Chase, Caleb and Alex might just threaten the mission and endanger themselves and everyone on the planet.

As the threat they face could prove bigger than anything they've ever confronted before.

6. A Course of Action Chapter 1

“Basically, my plan is to blow them up, then interrogate anyone left alive, well, I know you're wondering how I'm going to do it, well let me tell you.”

 

“I go in and use an explosive creation, spell after getting in undetected I perform the magyck and get out before it goes off using the additional time delay spell to give me as much time as I need to get away before the boom and we all come in after I've cleared away any fires picking whoever is left to answer our questions. Does that sound good to you both.”

 

“Sounds good to me.” Alex answered

 

“I like the basic idea, but I have a slight alteration, I am going to wipe the memory of this thing at our feet it won't be permanent, but it will last long enough for our purpose, then I'm going to take that explosive creation, spell of yours and I'm going to plant it with the time lapse inside him send him in there with it convinced nothing remarkable happened on the way back then we sit back until I use a psychic link to say the word and set the charge off.”

 

“You're going to turn him into some kind of walking blast wave, have you completely lost all sense of reason, he's a boy he can't be more than thirteen years old.”  Chase said, completely shocked by her dads idea.

 

“I don't see a problem with it, he may be young, but he is still an enemy of humanity, he's been brainwashed since birth to fanatically follow and believe in the superiority of Demons, trust me he wouldn't hesitate to kill you if it were the other way round.”  Alex said, then added

 

“And no I'm not just siding with Caleb to make amends for earlier, my sentimentality was what got the better of me back there I had no problem killing the others, but with him I didn't see an enemy soldier willing to kill for and die for his devotion to a Demon, no I saw a child and I froze just long enough for him to make a break for it.”

 

“Trust me Chase, whether he goes in there and blows up with its pals or I take my blade or pistol and end it right here on this roof,  he dies tonight and that's a statement of fact not a suggestion you can decide you don't want to obey.” Caleb told her.

 

“No dad, I'm not letting this happen, it's one thing to kill him I've killed cult members before, but I try to make it as quick and painless as possible I'm not we're not Demons who enjoy the thought of him being torn apart limb from limb from the inside.”

 

“Little girl, you are letting sentiment get in the way of the mission this thing does not want deserve or need your sympathy. We will execute my plan and him right along with it.”

 

“No dad, I'm not, I know my plan will get the job done as efficiently and also a lot less murderously.”

 

“Well, I know it won't. Your plan puts you at too much risk as you assume that you can take on the 50 or however more cultists are inside, why even take the risk if we can just use one of their own against them. I've made up my mind this is happening.”

 

Chase moved to get in her fathers face, “no dad it isn't, I'm telling you I don't give a damn about him, but if I make the plan we go with it that is how it works.”

 

“Usually you'd be right, but this is different we need information and..”

 

Chase interrupted him before he could finish saying

 

“You need revenge for what happened to Baine and Isabel, isn't that closer to the truth. You feel pain so you want to inflict some back on them.”

 

“I suppose you're right Caleb answered honestly, but now it's beside the point I still expect you to follow orders, even if you don't like them is that clear.”

 

“I am not one of your simple minded soldier's dad if I don't agree with what you plan on doing I'm not going to turn off my conscience and just do as I'm told.”

 

Look Chase, Alex cut in, trying to ease the tension as Chase and Caleb stood toe to toe neither prepared to back down

 

“It's your dads call, even if you don't approve you just have to do it, it doesn't mean that you have to like it.”

 

“As I said soldier boy, you and your people blindly follow the old man's orders not me, I'm the one born into this I'm the one who'll keep doing this until I've breathed my last breath, so don't tell me to be a yes man like you, we're not the same Alex never have been never will be.”

 

“Now I'll say it to you there in the bubble, I'm fighting for your life, you tell us whatever else you can and you go free, but if I ever see you again and you are still with these or any other Demon worshipping scum I will kill you, have no doubt about that.” Chase said.

 

“You are wasting time trying to reason with that thing, we all know if you want to save them, to undo any brainwashing that's already been done, you need to get them a lot earlier in life, by now some his age can lead cult chapters others just follow no less fanatical in their belief than anyone twice their age.”

 

So lets just get this done as quickly and efficiently as possible.” Caleb said

 

“Yes, exactly, that means we do it my way right.” Chase said

 

“No, it means we kill them all as I planned.” Caleb said, Well, you know you have my backing Alex said, so lets do this.

 

“No, no, no no no, this isn't going to happen.” Chase insisted as they continued to argue among themselves.

 

As the three of them continued to squabble, they came under attack as  more than a dozen heavily armed members of the boys cult jumped down on them, catching them almost off guard and thrusting them into a fight they were unprepared for.
