It was just another normal day for Alexis Grant. Yes, getting a call about a dead body in a dumpster might not be very normal for a normal person, but Alexis wasn’t normal. No, she was a cop. Now, it really starts getting strange when the body in question was classified as a witch, but it’s not so strange for Alexis. Her precinct just so happens to be with the S.B.D. Like I said, just another normal day.
The news came in as Alexis finished her morning cup of coffee. In record time the station sent a car out, with Alexis in it. “So, what’s the job again?” Asked a voice from inside the girl’s head. This was Vachel Roux, the Spirit who lived in Alexis’ body, as well as her ‘unofficial’ partner. “A witch was found dead in a dumpster behind that club, Nexus. We’re to help deal with it.” Alexis thought. As Vachel is practically sitting in her brain, they can communicate just by thinking. “That sounds boring… Why do we never get any of the good jobs?” Sighed Vachel. Right then, the car pulled up to Nexus; it was time to work.
Alexis got out of the car, and noticed the alleyway right away. Police tape was blocking it, and there was an officer or two on guard. “I’ll let you handle this one Alexis. It seems simple enough.” Said the Spirit as Alexis walked up to the tape and showed her badge. “Nothing’s ever simple though, not when we’re involved…”
There were two people examining the area, women who seemed familiar, but Alexis nor Vachel could guess who they were. Alexis just walked up silently, arms crossed, examining the body like the others. She couldn’t help but shiver as she stared at this poor girl. Even though she was with a S.B.D Police Department and dead body’s as well as the undead were normal occurrences, Alexis could never get used to seeing a body without a host. The poor dead girl’s body was pale, eyes glassy as they stared up into the sky. Vachel could sense his partners unease, and set out to calm her. “You know, I saw dead bodies all the time back when I was still alive. Hell, a good bit of them were people I killed, but still…” Vachel decided to shut up when he noticed his talk wasn’t helping. He never was good at those types of things. Alexis eventually calmed herself down, after taking a deep breath. “Alright, what happened here exactly?” She asked the two women, hoping they could shed some light.
