Luca and Edward jump in the van and head towards the city. Kash stands in the front yard, smoking as they leave. "Don't stress. I'll make sure Aileen doesn't burn down the place. Try to find out what we need to do next."

Ward watches the houses flash by 'I do not see how they can find us, less we do something which is really strange. We are four in 3 million, so long as we don't move back to our stomping grounds we are safe. '

'Dreams are some strange things for sure,  I've studied art and history,  my wife is a Nordic scholar,  and some of the dreams suggest things, Ahusa, Aeir.   Can't be sure, but can't hurt to do some reading.' 

Quoting 'This ain't really normal' for sure Luca, for sure.  I have not really thought about the why yet, I'm more trying for the control and avoiding becoming overwhelmed.'

St Kilda Appartment Dive
After passing near the center of Melbourne down Hoddle St, Luca diverts the car towards the eastern beaches and St Kilda back streets. He pulls up outside a seedy-looking run-down Art Deco apartment block. Luca points up towards apartment 3, "Lets drop in on an old mate of mine, he might have some things I need"

After heavily knocking, the door swings open. A large man angry-looking man stands blocking the way into the rest of the apartment, Luca starts rambling on and mild look of confusion crosses his face before allow both of you to enter the apartment. Sitting on a couch is an older man, with thinning hair and a bad suit. His sunken eyes give a brief life history of hardship or heavy drug us. On the coffee table in front of his sits a zipped up sports bag.

Luca steps right up to shake the mans hand "Henry, long time. Look I've got myself into a little....". Henry looks a little surprised that the guy at the door seems to have let the two of you in. Backtracking a little "Look mate, whoever you are, this is not the best time. Best that you make tracks and come back in a few days. We can do business then!"

Just then there is a heavy knock at the door, Henry turns to Luca "Fuck! You and your mate, go stand in the corner and shut the fuck up"

Henry steadies himself, and then the bouncer opens up the door. On the other side is three men dressed in motorbike leathers. Two of the men step inside, the second man squaring up to the bouncer. The first scanning the room, locking eyes on the sports bag.

"Having a little party are we Henry?" He looks around the room a little more seemly searching for something. "Ok then mate, what have you got for me?"

Luca knows how this sort of meeting goes and tugs Ed's arm to the corner.. quietly watching he is careful not to lock eyes or seem a threat to the thugs. (not yet at least)

Under his breath to Ed, Eye's down, seem bored like there is nothing hapenning..

Flicking his fingers against Luca jacket as a sign of understanding, Ward looks to the floor, keeping his eyes down....'The apartment is different'.

Henry push the sports bag towards the Bikie leader "As requested, its all there". The bikie looks down at the sports bag, unzips the top to peek inside. Wads of notes and wrapped bundles can be seen inside.

The Bikie looks back to Henry "Fuck, I didn't think you could pull it off. You must have called in a few favors to get it done"

Luca relaxes a little, quietly waits as if he has nothing to add. He stands looking at Henry like he is the boss and shutting up until spoken to.

The Bikie looks around the room, then grabs the bag "You better not fuck me around Henry", he pulls a handgun from his jacket waving it around at Henry. He starts to back towards the door.

Ward looks on with concealed interest, then whispers to Luca 'Polizia nearby.'  He looks back to the room, trying to would out what effect Luca has going.

Luca considers his nearest exit. Window/door to other room. Making no moves just yet, but ready to leave or act..

The desire energy woven into the area seems to collapse, reality moves forward.

The Bikie moves to the door, still waving the gun and then makes a run for it down the stairs with his mate. Soon afterwards there is shouting of police and guns shots echo from the footpath out the front.

Henry places his hand over the collar of his suit and mimes 'Get the fuck out of here' and points towards the kitchen door, which leads out to an internal courtyard of the apartment block.

Luca nods and leads ed out without saying anything.. he looks confused.. then a bit strange..

When they are out of the flat, It was like the world wanted something... or we could have made the world want something. I feel like something was not right back there, like I am different in the world now. Sound crazy? I don't get it.. what's going on Ed?

Patting Luca on the back 'Well, I can only tell you what I saw.  You know about the police,  hard-mined men hunters, searching for their prey.   Also as we came in everyone you talked to go confused, did you notice that? '  continuing 'Then the room was overplayed with a will,  a desire to have something done.   That was you,  it failed after we started looking to get out.  Whatever power was manifesting collapsed.  Can you remember what you where thinking before I interrupted?'

Ward balls his fists 'Oh.. so exciting this'.

Back on Track
The area around the apartment is full of police for a few hours, before there is an opening to get back to the van. During that time, Luca and Ed sit down by the beach, watching the waves crash on the beach.

Back in the van, the pair head towards back towards the city.

Luca seems deep in thought.. eventually asking ed, so, think our former lives don't want us? Or we can head back to them but something doesn't want us to. like they've forgotten us? Anyway, let's head to your library, find some books stuff and see if anything might start to make sense.

Nodding 'Yep, book stuff it is.  Will use the catalogue system but might try and see where the fates lead me too,  symbol books and histories'  shrugging 'other hidden stuff.' 

'Our former lives, well I want some control over chaos first.  Then will look in on my family.   Do you have any friends that you want to catch up with?'

Luca thinks hard.. The weird thing is that I feel like that old life is there, but I have the option of pushing into it or not. Some past life or something is coming out of us and we are along for the ride. I reckon we look for that person who came to the hospital looking for us, that's who we need. See if your books can help point the direction at them.. then Luca leans out the window and yells at some birds in a tree as he goes past.. Unless you want to help find me that guy? I'll get you some bird seed!

Ward nodding at Luca words 'Yep, oh so right there,  different lives are mingling.   As to that person who came looking for us, I hope the library will help with the strange taboo.

After we get a bit of research done on that,  I was thinking of trying to have fate lead me to the tattoo parlour which did it, a bit like how we found that house.  Anyway a tattoo parlour will surely suit your skills better than mine.' 
  he smiles as the city skyscrapers come into view.

'Get a park behind the Expedition Building,  we can walk from there.

After parking the Van in a city alleyway, Luca and Edward walk to the library. The forecourt is crowded with people on the lawns and chairs, sitting in the sun eating lunch.


Inside Edward starts to gather a few books, looking over the catalogs. Sitting at a reading desk, he finds a few references to the images the detective had. It appears to be linked to neo-nazi occult groups. As Edward reads through the books, thin glowing threads start to spread out from his back toward the various books. No seems to notice

Ward continues to flick over the pages of the book 'Neo-nazi, a sort of sunwheel system.  First used by Himmler.'  he gets a bookmark from his pocket and absentmindedly puts the mark on the books.

Running his hand over the book mark 'I got this bookmark in the Hospital while reading books there,  seems the only way that would happen if it was planned.  Our strangers getting a message in?   The place is a only a few blocks walk,  up for an another walk mate? 

Putting the bookmark back in his jacket, Ward returns the books stretch out on the reading table and heads for the big doors leading out onto the busy Melbourne streets.
