Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
Ali returned to the gate and passed through the police line. She glances at the officers handle the forensics as she wanders a little bit.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
The Harrows -- Carpenter Home

Jane is back up in her room after the addendum with her parents.

The Harrows -- At the cemetery

James wandered back toward the cemetery gates taking the long route which would guarantee that he'd walked the full perimeter and ensured there were no gaps in the wall.


Kat  is outside the gate.


Ali circled to the cemetery gate and walked inside. There were two squad cars worth of police officers on duty there until the morning, when the forensic techs would be looking through much more thoroughly. There were a a group of forensic techs and their portable spots checking out where the grave had been dug up.


John leaves the comfort of the wall and the shadows there, staying in the shadows, as he moves closer to the forensics team. As he gets closer, he can start to their conversation. It's still indistinct from this distance. But the tone is conversational, rather than argumentative or alarmed.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
Kat just hangs out by the gate, listening and smelling the area, in case she smells any more dead things.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
Soda was in no hurry, and had absolutely no desire to get caught using his abilities. He remains visible, but lingers around the cemetery wall, out of sight of the police at the front gate, waiting for the ladies to come back out. He shuffles along, trying to look as inconspicuous as possible.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
Kat continues to hang out and if asked, will say she is waiting for Ali.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
Ali walks over to the forensics team to check out the progress. She'll be careful to steer clear of them enough to not interfere at all, so she'll go around them some to see from different angles. She also pulls out her smartphone and keeps it in her left hand.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
John moved a little closer, keeping to the dark side of the larger gravestones, trying to get within ear shot.  Some one said the word zombies  on the police scanner, and the real question he wanted answered was if it was true.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
The Harrows -- Carpenter Home

Jane is back up in her room after the addendum with her parents.

The Harrows -- At the cemetery

Kat hung outside the gates, keeping a nose on things.

James moved over toward Kat, but lingered around the corner to ensure that he was even less likely to be seen by the police.

John moved a little closer to the forensic techs to try to hear what they're saying. This was made a little easier as the female detective came over to check things out. She had their attention, so John could sneak a little closer and continue to hide in the shadows.


Ali walked past the forensics techs, using her phone as a flash light to examine the ground, as she talked with the techs. Then she abruptly turned and the light of her phone illuminated a ghostly figure.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
Not wanting to be seen, and not wanting to be seen using his invisibility, James waited outside the cemetery for the others. They'd be out eventually, and he didn't have the need to go rushing in to see what was happening. He'd find out soon enough.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
"Freeze! Police!" Ali shouts. Although she has a hand ready to grab her gun, she seems more focused on her phone than reaching for the gun.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
John didn't move.  He was dressed in a hoodie and leather jacket, a scarf covering his face.  It was hard to tell in the darkness, but he looked slightly out of focus.

His eyes glanced down to the gun on her hip, then back to her face.  It was a little difficult to see with the bright led pinpoint at him, but he didn't move to shield his eyes.

It was obvious he knew he was seen, but as instructed he waited for her to make the next move.


ooc: I put a stock photo in his description,  I was surprised how quickly it cemented his look for me.  I was going for a bit of "the shadow knows" but didn't want the big hat.  I think this worked out.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
Kat walks over to James "Maybe you should go to the back to make sure he just doesn't sneak out. I can't track him yet as I have not gotten a whiff of him"

"This is a crime scene. Who are you?" As he paused and doesn't seem armed, Ali keeps her hand away from her gun. She keeps aiming her smartphone toward him to keep the light on him.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
"Aight. Black man who looks like me doesn't really want to have to explain why I'm hanging around a crime scene to a bunch of cops, but long as I can stay outta sight, it's all good."

He went back around the graveyard perimeter, away from the front gates and circled back to watch as much of the walls as he could without police seeing him.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
John slowly stands behind the gravestone where he was crouching.  He stays behind it for a moment, unmoving.  He is tall, athletic from what can be seen. "A concerned citizen, looking for the truth." he says, his voice a bit gravelly.  "If the radio is right..."  he pauses.  "...things are going to get bad.  Again."

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
The Harrows -- Carpenter Home

Jane is still back up in her room after the addendum with her parents.

The Harrows -- At the cemetery

Kat and James talked briefly. Kat would stay in the shadows by the gate trying to keep a nose on things. James headed around the cemetery perimeter. Before James could walk too far, they found the prowl cars roar to life and head deeper into the cemetery.

Inside the cemetery, John and Ali were talking. The forensic techs called the prowl cars on the radio and the they could see the prowl cars rushing from the gate deeper into the cemetery to provide backup.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
John's head turns, a few seconds before the siren's roar to life.  He looks back at the cop with the light, and slowly draws something from his jacket chest pocket.  "Call me sometime." he says, dropping it on the gravestone, just at the sirens start to be heard.

He turns and bolts, running a straight beeline for the outside wall.  He vanishes into the darknees, slipping in and out of gravestones, before he disappears through the cemetery wall.

On the stone is a business card, an image of a brass knuckle dominating one side, a handwritten phone number on the other.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear



James heard the sirens start up and made sure they weren't coming for him, then kept watch on the walls. It was a big place, and he couldn't cover more than a tiny fraction at once pacing around the way he was, it'd be easy for someone to slip out without him seeing.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
Ali runs forward as he takes off. She knows she won't catch him, but she at least wants to get to whatever he dropped on the gravestone before any wind blows it away.

The Harrows -- At the cemetery

Kat was caught flat-footed by the prowl cars roaring to life. She lingered by the gates to try to get a sniff at the intruder, if he went out that way. James hurried back to the wall and try to spot the intruder.

John told Ali to call him and dropped a business card with only a local phone number on it, upon a gravestone in front of him, before turning and running toward the wall of the cemetery and slipping away. Ali retrieved the card.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
Ali deals with the police who arrive.  After dealing with them she leaves the scene to start walking home. She's not in a particular rush, but it's been a long night and she's tired.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
When he was sure he wasn't going to get into trouble for loitering around a crime scene while black, James tried to flag Kat and Ali down. He wanted to run the plan he and Kat had hatched past Ali, then arrange to talk more about it the next day.

Re: Chapter Two: Chaos and Fear
When Ali notices James flagging her down (which may just be him speaking to her from a distance), she casually strolls his direction to meet up with him (and perhaps Kat).
