Episode 2-9
Sunnydale City Hall:

All the way at the other end of the long table, sits the mayor of Sunnydale. He looks to be 40 to 50 years old, brown hair, and appears to be totally non-hostile.

"Well, hello.  I'm Patrick Rugby, mayor of Sunnydale.  You can just call me Bubba, everyone does." he says with a southern accent, possibly Georgian.

"You'll no longer need those." From the opposite side of the room, the mayor waves his hand.  All three of you hear a click sound as all three of your handcuffs unlock by themselves and drop to the floor.

"Now why don't you all have a seat." the mayor says.

Sunnydale tunnels:

Mike and Aaron suddenly hear a motor running overhead and the few rays of sun are blocked out.  Mike's vamp hearing picks the faint sound of a police radio overhead.  There's a car parked over the manhole above you and it's definitely not a tourist.  One minute later it moves on.  The Sunnydale vamp police are on the hunt for you two now that sunlight isn't a problem.  You're safe for now.  But for how long?

Re: Episode 2-9
Annabelle sits down at the nearest seat at the opposite end of the conference table.  That wasn't peachy at all.  What kind of power does he possess? she thought after his demonstration with their handcuffs. She managed to maintain her composure as she sat down.

"Thank you Mr. Mayor.  I don't suppose we'll be having tea as well?"

Lance looks at the unreal situation playing out before him. As usual his hard headed attitude prevents him from taking a seat.

Rubbing his wrists to be dramatic more than anything else "I'll stand thank you." he states matter of factly while eyeing the mayor.

Aaron nods in agreement a grim look on his face before he follows Michael into the now even deeper darkness.

City Hall:

"As you wish m'boy." the mayor says to Lance as he hits the button on his intercom.  "Doris, bring us some tea please.  The good British stuff."

The mayor switches off the intercom then looks back and forth between Annabelle and Lance.  And then he morphs into vamp vace. "We have a lot to talk about. I'll start by telling you about myself.  I'm a vampire. So's the chief and all his officers. Now your turn, why don't you start with telling me how many more of your friends are running around Sunndyale." the mayor says as he morphs back to human face.

Annabelle leans back in her chair nonchalantly.

"Quite a bit actually." she says turning to Lance.  "How many Initiative troops did you say came back with you Lance? Seventy?  Eighty?"

Lance catches on quickly, "Now you know that is classified information. Let's just say though that we were the first wave, the recon if you will, myself and the others you met. John and Harley have already reported back to HQ so the rest of the big boys will be following shortly and then our mission will be complete." He smiles knowingly at the mayor hoping he bought that line of bull.

Re: Episode 2-9
Underground:

Michael and Aaron continue walking for several minutes, then come to a stop.  Mike picks up something coming their way with his vamp hearing.  He can make out some talking and the sound of a police radio responding.  Vamp cops are coming their way.  At least two.  Maybe more.

You both notice you're standing next to a ladder leading to a manhole cover.  Still no sunlight showing, cloud cover remains.

OCC: You two have three options; keep moving forward and engage the vamp cops, go back the other way down the tunnels and hope you don't run into something else, or climb up the ladder and get above ground.

City Hall:

The mayor raises an eyebrow.  "So, there's another underground Initiative base in Sunnydale?  How interesting. We took great effort to neutralize all military threats both above and below ground didn't we chief?

Just then, the door opens and Doris, the mayor's assistant enters.  She appears to be about fifty-something, not very threatning, and carrying a tray with a tea pot and cups.

"Thank you Doris, I'll have mine the usual way.  Who else wants tea?"

"Right here.  No milk or sugar please." Annabelle says raising her hand.

"Lance, sit down.  Have some tea. It will make you feel better." she says to the Initiative agent before turning her attention back to the mayor.

"So you see Mr. Mayor, you are hopelessly outnumbered by the Initiative forces. Perhaps the wisest thing to do is retreat."

In reply to Director (msg # 10):

Mike smirks.

"We'll ambush 'em. Take cover. When they're down, we'll have a radio and can follow their movements."

Mike heads for the shadows. And will soon be a most unpleasant surprise.

Re: Episode 2-9
A minute later, the vamp cop team comes into view of Michael and Aaron from their hiding spots.

There are three of them, one SWAT vamp with armored vest and helmet, about 6 foot, 6 inches tall. He's carrying an Initiative taser rifle in his hands.

The other two are regular cops carrying regular pistols. They're about two seconds away from spotting Mike and Aaron.


OCC: I'm presuming you'll want to ambush them now.  To the combat thread then.
