Charles


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She stormed into the kitchen, turning on the coffee machine. She didn't look at anyone and didn't speak. It was quite obvious that if anyone tried to talk to her, she'd bite their heads off.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
I was sitting in the kitchen, going over the surveillance tapes and information to see if my hunch was correct. Eventually, I chuckle softly, before I notice Elle and her expression. "Are you okay Elle? It looks like you didn't have a great day at the office."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She turned around to send her best death glare-which has been known to scare even the biggest man alive-to Eliza, "one more word and I'll throw this cup at you." She threatened.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"I can imagine. But Elle, can you come here for a minute? I need to talk to you."


B
Julian Argent
Julian entered the room just in time to notice Elle's expression and hear her words. "Someone had a bad day..." Julian said just as he walked in and walked over to the coffee machine and surving himself a cup - ignoring any glares Elle may have sent towards him.

ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She sent him a glare before poking out her tongue. She moved over to Eliza, "this better be good, you've been hounding me about it all day," she replied in a rather snarky tone.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"For sure. Remember the man you accompanied to the interrogation? I think he's a member of the Cult. He got his record wiped clean by Katherine, a woman he said that forced him to do her bidding. The exactly same one in the Cult. On the scene, there were three set of prints - the boy's and Mr. Romanov's for sure, but the third wasn't so noticeable, until I noticed the elemental trace in them, and they only had one match - Katherine."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She frowned as she listened to this, "how would they have Katherine's prints?" She replied before tapping on the bench, "can we track her?"


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"That unto itself will be a process, but I think that it could be possible. Just means a long night, and a lot of coffee." I say as I close my laptop and pack up, before heading up to the master spa room


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Go bring your boyfriend down, will you? All of us need to talk to him," she called after her before going back over to the machine, "how was your day?" She asked to both Julian and Diana.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Can't promise, but I'll try." I chuckle as I walk towards the master bedroom, where I stayed for the night, awake and working on how to track Katherine.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He walked down the stairs, his hair a mess and his mouth yawning, as he walked into the kitchen, trying to sneak in a cookie.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
Her head snapped over to him, "oi, Norwood, we need to talk."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Ah, spit, you gallied me, Eleanor. Spit?" He arched an eyebrow as he smiled by the side to Elle with a dimple on his cheek.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"With our jobs, we'd be sending Diana and Liam to go check out Charles," she replied, "but since your connection with him, would you rather take a break from the job tomorrow and tag along in place of one of them?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"If I could do that, it would be awesome. I could definitely switch places. Diana I feel should be better at this than me so I suppose I should change places with her? If that's okay with Diana, that is."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
Her fingers tapped the counter as she poured the milk into the tin cup to steam, "so you'd be with Liam?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He analyzed the situation for half a second before he nodded, "yeah, I believe that would be how it works."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Roger," she began before giving him a hard look, "I'm only suggesting you go because of your familiarity with him. Screw up with him like you did today..." she left it hanging before warning him, "do not dare let your emotions get in your way."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He sighed "I know Eleanor. It was the surprise and uncertainty of it that messed me up. I promise not to screw up. I apologise."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She gave him a dirty look, "stop calling me that, it's Elle," she replied rather tersely. "And don't apologise to me."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He cocked his head to the side, "I've always called you Eleanor? You introduced yourself yourself to me by that name... Either way, if you do not fancy it, I suppose I can call you Elle."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I go by Elle," she said simply, "and I should have introduced myself that way."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
 "Alright Elle."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I'd advice you to leave in the morning," she replied before waltzing out of the room.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He nodded, sighed, and covered his face in his hands, clearly disappointed in himself.


Timeskip–Morning

LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He was standing by the door dressed in his usual attire but with a heavy coat thrown over it. He was obviously awaiting Diana, not aware of the changes that had been made.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
I walked to the door, cracking a bit of a smile. "Well then, ready for another day?"


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He glanced towards Eliza and smiled briefly, "visiting your soon-to-be brother in law," he replied.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Soon to be?" I raise a brow. "Are you guys now placing bets that Roger and I are going to get married?" I couldn't help but smile.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
Roger strutted down the stairs in a formal attire with a navy blue vest over his dress shirt and a trench coat on top of the vest. He had removed the glasses for the day as he wouldn't be an attorney for the time being. He looked at Liam, "So shall we get going?" he then turned to face Eliza and pecked her on her cheek.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Also, I was recruited to this team as well. Apparently, Elle thinks that you three need a little...law enforcement." I say, wearing a peacoat, with a patterned purple sleeveless blazer over a black t-shirt, wearing straight black jeans and knee high boots, keeping my police badge on me, along with my holstered gun.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
His expression flickered at this, "Diana and I don't need to be protected," e replied rather tersely, "I can handle him if it gets out of hand."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"I know you can, but the visit, this could turn out to be what we didn't expect, and well, Elle agreed that the researchers needed some backup, so you guys can investigate, and if we get unexpected company, then they'll meet me."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"Elle's not the bo-" he stopped and decided against pushing that argument, "so just us three, then?" He asked.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"I think so. Ready to head out?" I say, adjusting my jacket.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Yes. Let's head on. "


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
His head snapped up to Roger, "you're coming too?" He asked, his tone rather cold, "where's Diana?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Staying with Elle, I suppose. I stated I was going with you before..."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He thought briefly back to the amount of drinks he had and then the black pit that was his memories. For a moment, he acknowledged his pounding head before shaking his head, "whatever," he grumbled before swinging the door open, "let's get this over with."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"I dibs driving though." I say as we walk outside. "Unless one of you two would prefer to drive?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Well, I still have my license. I held on to it when Elle was almost kidnapped yesterday so it didn't get burned with the car explosion. I guess I should drive just in case? Unless you really want to? I wouldn't mind."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"I can drive," he replied as he smirked at them but it wasn't humorous, "if you want some privacy in the back."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"You're hilarious." I say to Liam. "I think Roger should, mainly because he has his licence on hand. But it's your call."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He shrugged, "then Roger can," he said, "it doesn't matter." With that, he swung himself into the pitch black SUV.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
I nod and sit in the shotgun seat, getting directions to where Charles was.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"So. It's been really long since I've been here in Moscow, and I don't know where he should or could be. " Roger said as he ignited the fuel and started the engine, shifting into position and moving the rearview mirror until it was in its right placement. "Buckle yourselves," he continued as he did so himself, read to start driving.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
I buckle up my seatbelt. "He was last seen in an apartment, different complex. Should we try there first?"


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He relaxed in the back, putting his feet on the other seat, not bothering with the belt, "obviously," he replied with a yawn.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"You can be really lazy, you know, right?" He arched an eyebrow to the rearview mirror so that Liam could receive the expressive message by looking into it. Funny. Reminds me of- he returned his focus to the wheel as a guy in front of him almost made them crash. Roger honked at him and managed to avoid any collision between them.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"I'm not lazy," he rebutted, "nothing wrong with being comfortable," he argued. "And I have a headache, so I want to go back to sleep in the drive."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Why is it aching? DO you need a pill. I may have some in my messenger bag..."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Are you sure it isn't from our fight with Katherine?"


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"I suppose it derives from it," he said before thumping his fist on the seat in front of him, "now hurry up."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"I am. We're going at 80km/h. That's pretty decent."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"I would say so too, Liam. Unless you're eager for something.."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He grunted at this and pulled his shirt over his face, allowing the air to brush his heavily scarred stomach. He was boiling hot and this allowed him to cool down a notch. "How long?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Being positive? Five minutes. Realistically? As in, taking traffic into account, then I'd say about ten to fifteen minutes."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
In truth, he was in a sour mood. Before he had figured he could manage to convince Diana to keep watch whilst he conversed with Charles but with the two of them, he'd have to settle with keeping watch himself. "Oh, I am very positive. My lovely attitude just reaffirms that, don't you think?"


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Liam, I know that this might take a while, but you'll have to be patient, okay?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"What do you want so bad anyways? Ate you sure you are okay back there?" Roger inquired politely as he looked at thre rearview mirror, trying to find what was wrong wih Liam.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"I'm confused why you think I'm not." He grumbled, flying into a seated position in the middle seat to lean in between them, "so what's the plan?"


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Go in and talk."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"No sh*t, Sherlock," he said sarcastically, "but at least one of us stand us outside to watch. So who wil it be? Or will we all go in and talk?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"I think Eliza should stay outside for cover, given that she's the only one of us with a weapon other than our powers. Thoughts?


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Sounds good. But if it sounds like things are getting ugly, then I'm coming in, okay?


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He gagged at this, "you don't have a weapon?" He asked Roger in disbelief.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"He is a lawyer after all. I can lend you two my baton if you want."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"And I think both of you are getting a bit caught up in this," he said rather coldly, "he's a soldier of the academy foremost, he's not a lawyer. Not really," he replied and pulled out a dagger he kept in his boot, "he can have this."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Well, at least we stay in character, but with the possibility of Katherine being around, I don't want to take any chances. And Liam, I assume that you're covered."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"I think she knows your face quite well," he said rather sarcastically but nodded, "I do, yes. Quite enough."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Had she taken you, Katherine would probably known everything about you, including your face, quite well."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
A strange expression crossed his face at this and he shut his mouth and went back to his previous expression.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He shook his head, "Of course I have a weapon. It's just not as effective as a gun. It's a kakute."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
You may as well be weaponless, he thought bitterly but he just muttered, "just get on with the driving, will you?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"That is what I'm doing, pretty boy," he teased, "Just because you tell me to continue driving, I'm not going to go any faster."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"Well," he said with a teasing smirk, "we do have the police with us. Surely, we can use that to our advantage and run a few red lights."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"We're not going to abuse any power that was given to us. Specially sinc ethe power is not even real, " he replied, collected. "We're going to get there in five minutes, though"


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He humphed at this, "you know, last time I was hear it was snowing," he said conversationally, "I liked it better with snow."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
I tapped my finger, only to notice the pretend engagement ring on my finger. "Crap, I forgot to take this off." I say as I pull the ring from my hand and set it in my jacket pocket.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He glanced over at Eliza and watched her put it away, "is that the plan?" He asked, "you use your feminine charms to tell him everything he knows? If so, you're right, it wouldn't work if he believed you are married."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
I couldn't help but laugh. "Liam, you are ridiculous! First of all, the only person who deserves my feminine charm is Roger. Secondly, the ring is part of being Detective Pavlov, not me, so it would be awkward if I had to bust in, then someone would have to explain everything, giving a chance that the mission could be blown."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"Have you ever considered that maybe we won't be using our covers?" he asked them, "he knows Roger, our covers will be blown anyway."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"That is, if we're talking about the same Charles Norwood. There's still the minimal chance that it is a different guy."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"Funny, a majority of me highly doubts that," he said.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Hey, you can never be sure..."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"Knowing the likelihood of an Irish name being in Moscow, I'm going to say I'm fairly certain."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He shrugged, "How could you know for sure? You sound very convinced."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"And do you honestly believe we have the luck to not run into your brother?" He asked with a snort.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Well, of course. I'm just saying we should to anything."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"I'm saying not to raise false hope," he said quietly, "that will be what destroys you."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"I am not raising false hope, William." His eyes widened as he said the name. Somehow it fit perfectly but it also felt out of place. Deciding to ignore it, he announced "I am just pointing out a possibility. Also, we're now here." He parked in an empty spot and looked at them.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He stared at Rodger in alarmed, "what did you just call me?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
His breathing got heavier only slightly but he acted out calmly. "Liam." He said confidently.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He shot out of the car and walked into the apartment complex.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
Shaking his head, he stood up, and followed Liam.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He pranced into the apartment complex and wandered up to the third floor, "so...I'll stay out here and you two go in?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"We agreed that Eliza would be the one staying outside."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"But I am sure her womanly wits would be far more useful than my sullen scowl," he argued.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"One can never know. Come on, man. We can do it," he offered his hand.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He thought through hundreds of reasons why he shouldn't go in there but with each thought that came, something disproved it. Closing his mouth, he stared at Roger before lettting his knuckles rap at the door.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
ROger nodded in approval before turning to face Liam, "Are you alright? I mean, all things considered."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He shrugged, "does it matter?" he asked before the door swung open.

The Modern Janissaries
Charles peered out at the three of them, skipping over Eliza and briefly look at Liam with a furrowed brow before turning back to Roger and grinned. "Roger!"
