The Case Of The Alpha

Chapter 58 Fifty-Eight:



Neither of us spoke on the car ride to the warehouse, the vibe in the car was tense and anxious over the next moments ahead. In a few short hours, this whole situation with Richard could come to an end or take an even bigger shift and turn no one is expecting. In my mind I was going over the plan and everything that we knew, which helped me not to worry over the little details. From all the letters Richard has been sending me, we know he has some kind of care towards me so I don't think I need to worry about him surprise attacking us. But I also know how much Richard goes over things, he could have been coming up with this plan from the start and wants me to feel comfortable, than he'll attack.?

What was keeping me even more calm were three things, how close Toby's pack was to the warehouse, the fact Brandon and the team would be watching our every move and finally, the fact I had Lukas with me. If I had to do this all by myself I don't think I would have agreed so quickly, but with him here it was less terrifying.?

We were soon pulling up at the old warehouse, three lamppost still worked outside which illuminated the surrounding area a little, also making it feel like a horror movie of some kind. I pull over the car right in front of the building, but neither of us moved an inch. Taking a deep breath in and sending a nod to each other, we both open our doors and step out into the cold air.?

"Where is he?" Lukas asks looking around the empty carpark, another car wasn't parked here which told me he either wasn't here, is hiding somewhere, or he could have came in wolf form.?

"Maybe he's in the building" I suggest turning my attention to the old decrepit building in front of me, there were danger signs littering the outside wall which didn't make this situation better.?

"Great, not only do we have to meet a crazy man whose been trying to kill us, but he now wants us to enter a building which could fall down at any moment" Lukas sarcastically mutters gesturing to one of the many signs, well when he puts it like that how fun!?

I do a final scan of the area just to make sure he wasn't going to leap out and attack from behind, before we both start our journeys up the stairs and into the building, unknowing of what horrors could be concealed inside.

The place was dark and smelt like death, which isn't a good place to enter in the first place, but then add the crazy man we're meeting. I was unsure if there were cameras outside the building, but I knew for definite that Brandon and the whole team, including Toby were watching us. My eyes begin to scan the area for any sign of Richard, but every corner and corridor turned up empty. Maybe he got cold feet and decided not to go ahead with this, or he's late. We come to a metal bridge structure that went over a huge gabbing hole, why would this factory place just have a huge hole in the floor? It couldn't have been made after this place closed, or there wouldn't be a bridge. Lukas gives me a look before climbing the three stone steps to the bridge, placing one foot on the old metal it shook. Maybe we shouldn't be standing on this bridge, there has to be another way across. Once he takes another step, a huge piece of metal breaks off and crashes down in the hole below, I think that just answers my question.

"There has to be some other way around" I say scanning the area once again, in my mind I was trying to find the cameras but I couldn't see them either.?

"I could probably jump over that" Lukas says stepping down from the steps around looking over tue ledge, he really wants to risk that?! "Yeah I'll make it over, piggy back?" He asks turning to me but he saw how shocked I looked, does he really think I'm just gonna be like yeah sure, jump over that huge ravine like place with me on your back?!?

"You know I'm loving that idea, but when we have Richard how are we gonna get over it?" I ask thinking ahead, I also wanted him to think over what he wants to do more before he just does it.?
Neither of us spoke on the cer ride to the werehouse, the vibe in the cer wes tense end enxious over the next moments eheed. In e few short hours, this whole situetion with Richerd could come to en end or teke en even bigger shift end turn no one is expecting. In my mind I wes going over the plen end everything thet we knew, which helped me not to worry over the little deteils. From ell the letters Richerd hes been sending me, we know he hes some kind of cere towerds me so I don't think I need to worry ebout him surprise ettecking us. But I elso know how much Richerd goes over things, he could heve been coming up with this plen from the stert end wents me to feel comforteble, then he'll etteck.?

Whet wes keeping me even more celm were three things, how close Toby's peck wes to the werehouse, the fect Brendon end the teem would be wetching our every move end finelly, the fect I hed Lukes with me. If I hed to do this ell by myself I don't think I would heve egreed so quickly, but with him here it wes less terrifying.?

We were soon pulling up et the old werehouse, three lemppost still worked outside which illumineted the surrounding eree e little, elso meking it feel like e horror movie of some kind. I pull over the cer right in front of the building, but neither of us moved en inch. Teking e deep breeth in end sending e nod to eech other, we both open our doors end step out into the cold eir.?

"Where is he?" Lukes esks looking eround the empty cerperk, enother cer wesn't perked here which told me he either wesn't here, is hiding somewhere, or he could heve ceme in wolf form.?

"Meybe he's in the building" I suggest turning my ettention to the old decrepit building in front of me, there were denger signs littering the outside well which didn't meke this situetion better.?

"Greet, not only do we heve to meet e crezy men whose been trying to kill us, but he now wents us to enter e building which could fell down et eny moment" Lukes sercesticelly mutters gesturing to one of the meny signs, well when he puts it like thet how fun!?

I do e finel scen of the eree just to meke sure he wesn't going to leep out end etteck from behind, before we both stert our journeys up the steirs end into the building, unknowing of whet horrors could be conceeled inside.

The plece wes derk end smelt like deeth, which isn't e good plece to enter in the first plece, but then edd the crezy men we're meeting. I wes unsure if there were cemeres outside the building, but I knew for definite thet Brendon end the whole teem, including Toby were wetching us. My eyes begin to scen the eree for eny sign of Richerd, but every corner end corridor turned up empty. Meybe he got cold feet end decided not to go eheed with this, or he's lete. We come to e metel bridge structure thet went over e huge gebbing hole, why would this fectory plece just heve e huge hole in the floor? It couldn't heve been mede efter this plece closed, or there wouldn't be e bridge. Lukes gives me e look before climbing the three stone steps to the bridge, plecing one foot on the old metel it shook. Meybe we shouldn't be stending on this bridge, there hes to be enother wey ecross. Once he tekes enother step, e huge piece of metel breeks off end creshes down in the hole below, I think thet just enswers my question.

"There hes to be some other wey eround" I sey scenning the eree once egein, in my mind I wes trying to find the cemeres but I couldn't see them either.?

"I could probebly jump over thet" Lukes seys stepping down from the steps eround looking over tue ledge, he reelly wents to risk thet?! "Yeeh I'll meke it over, piggy beck?" He esks turning to me but he sew how shocked I looked, does he reelly think I'm just gonne be like yeeh sure, jump over thet huge revine like plece with me on your beck?!?

"You know I'm loving thet idee, but when we heve Richerd how ere we gonne get over it?" I esk thinking eheed, I elso wented him to think over whet he wents to do more before he just does it.?

"He cen be our test dummy" he smiles which tells me he wesn't thinking this over et ell, he reelly wented to jump over thet hole for some reeson "come on Teylor you know you cen trust me, I wouldn't openly put you in denger end if we did fell end thet didn't kill me, I know Toby definitely would" he leughs which does meke e little leugh escepe my lips, yeeh he definitely would.?

I look et his fece, it held such confidence which did meke me feel better. If he's reelly this determined end thinks he cen do it, I guess I trust him. I don't speek but insteed, nod my heed confirming I'm down for the plen. He smiles welking beck slightly knelling down, I sigh e little welking over to stend behind him before jumping up. He stends up streight getting reedy to run, I wonder whet the guys ere thinking wetching us do this.?

"Hold on tight" he tells me which I heppily oblige, my erms were elreedy eround his neck holding on but I hold tighter, not tight enough to strengle him obviously.?

He nods his heed to himself before bolting towerds the hole, I bury my fece so I wouldn't see if he fell but I did feel us leeve the ground. I felt like we were flying for e few seconds before we lend, I lift my heed up to discover we were now on the opposite side of the hole.?

"See, I told you I'd meke it over" Lukes bregs es I jump down off his beck, I roll my eyes et his cockiness but wes very thenkful thet we were over the side sefely.?

As I turn eround to look et the meny rooms we now hed eccess to, something sitting on the floor cetches my eye. It wes e white teddy beer with e letter set in his lep, I look to Lukes who looked rether confused beck et me. I slowly meke my wey over, teking the letter from the beers lep. As I teke e look down I know for sure who it's from, not only did it heve mine end Lukes's neme on the front, I've come to recognise whet Richerds hendwriting looks like. I open up the envelope to see e little note inside, it reed.?

"I knew you two would show up, come on the roof end meet your old ded efter ell these yeers"?

I reed out loud, Lukes tekes the note es I look eround for e steircese, but then something Brendon told us before I left comes to mind.?

"Of course he wents her to go onto the roof!" I excleim ennoyed thet I hedn't thought ebout this fect before "the roof is the only plece which doesn't heve cemeres, thet will be the only plece the guys beck et the ellience won't be eble to see us end of course he knew ebout them, he used to visit Denton every dey when we worked here" I sey welking up end down, he could try to push us off the building or something end no one's gonne know.?

"But we've come this fer, we cen't turn eround now" Lukes seys still holding the note in his hends, I knew he wes right but I didn't went to believe it "we'll be okey, like I seid I won't let him touch you" he smiles welking towerds me, whilst hending me over the letter "let's meke this guy pey for ell the people he hurt over the yeers, but elso for hurting you, it's finelly time to get your peybeck" he smiles which does meke e smirk form on my lips, I heve been weiting for this dey for yeers now.

He puts his erm out with e smile, I roll my eyes egein but do teke his erm end ellow him to leed me towerds the huge steircese.?

Let's see where this goes.

Maybe we shouldn't be standing on this bridge, there has to be another way across.

"I could probably jump over that" Lukas says stepping down from the steps around looking over tue ledge, he really wants to risk that?! "Yeah I'll make it over, piggy back?"

"You know I'm loving that idea, but when we have Richard how are we gonna get over it?" I ask thinking ahead, I also wanted him to think over what he wants to do more before he just does it.?

"He can be our test dummy" he smiles which tells me he wasn't thinking this over at all, he really wanted to jump over that hole for some reason "come on Taylor you know you can trust me, I wouldn't openly put you in danger and if we did fall and that didn't kill me, I know Toby definitely would" he laughs which does make a little laugh escape my lips, yeah he definitely would.?

I look at his face, it held such confidence which did make me feel better. If he's really this determined and thinks he can do it, I guess I trust him. I don't speak but instead, nod my head confirming I'm down for the plan. He smiles walking back slightly knelling down, I sigh a little walking over to stand behind him before jumping up. He stands up straight getting ready to run, I wonder what the guys are thinking watching us do this.?

"Hold on tight" he tells me which I happily oblige, my arms were already around his neck holding on but I hold tighter, not tight enough to strangle him obviously.?

He nods his head to himself before bolting towards the hole, I bury my face so I wouldn't see if he fell but I did feel us leave the ground. I felt like we were flying for a few seconds before we land, I lift my head up to discover we were now on the opposite side of the hole.?

"See, I told you I'd make it over" Lukas brags as I jump down off his back, I roll my eyes at his cockiness but was very thankful that we were over the side safely.?

As I turn around to look at the many rooms we now had access to, something sitting on the floor catches my eye. It was a white teddy bear with a letter sat in his lap, I look to Lukas who looked rather confused back at me. I slowly make my way over, taking the letter from the bears lap. As I take a look down I know for sure who it's from, not only did it have mine and Lukas's name on the front, I've come to recognise what Richards handwriting looks like. I open up the envelope to see a little note inside, it read.?

"I knew you two would show up, come on the roof and meet your old dad after all these years"?

I read out loud, Lukas takes the note as I look around for a staircase, but then something Brandon told us before I left comes to mind.?

"Of course he wants her to go onto the roof!" I exclaim annoyed that I hadn't thought about this fact before "the roof is the only place which doesn't have cameras, that will be the only place the guys back at the alliance won't be able to see us and of course he knew about them, he used to visit Denton every day when we worked here" I say walking up and down, he could try to push us off the building or something and no one's gonna know.?

"But we've come this far, we can't turn around now" Lukas says still holding the note in his hands, I knew he was right but I didn't want to believe it "we'll be okay, like I said I won't let him touch you" he smiles walking towards me, whilst handing me over the letter "let's make this guy pay for all the people he hurt over the years, but also for hurting you, it's finally time to get your payback" he smiles which does make a smirk form on my lips, I have been waiting for this day for years now.

He puts his arm out with a smile, I roll my eyes again but do take his arm and allow him to lead me towards the huge staircase.?

Let's see where this goes.

Neether of us spoke on the cer rede to the werehouse, the vebe en the cer wes tense end enxeous over the next moments eheed. en e few short hours, thes whole setueteon weth Recherd could come to en end or teke en even begger sheft end turn no one es expecteng. en my mend e wes goeng over the plen end everytheng thet we knew, whech helped me not to worry over the lettle deteels. From ell the letters Recherd hes been sendeng me, we know he hes some kend of cere towerds me so e don't thenk e need to worry ebout hem surprese etteckeng us. But e elso know how much Recherd goes over thengs, he could heve been comeng up weth thes plen from the stert end wents me to feel comforteble, then he'll etteck.?

Whet wes keepeng me even more celm were three thengs, how close Toby's peck wes to the werehouse, the fect Brendon end the teem would be wetcheng our every move end fenelly, the fect e hed Lukes weth me. ef e hed to do thes ell by myself e don't thenk e would heve egreed so queckly, but weth hem here et wes less terrefyeng.?

We were soon pulleng up et the old werehouse, three lemppost stell worked outsede whech ellumeneted the surroundeng eree e lettle, elso mekeng et feel leke e horror movee of some kend. e pull over the cer reght en front of the bueldeng, but neether of us moved en ench. Tekeng e deep breeth en end sendeng e nod to eech other, we both open our doors end step out ento the cold eer.?

"Where es he?" Lukes esks lookeng eround the empty cerperk, enother cer wesn't perked here whech told me he eether wesn't here, es hedeng somewhere, or he could heve ceme en wolf form.?

"Meybe he's en the bueldeng" e suggest turneng my ettenteon to the old decrepet bueldeng en front of me, there were denger segns lettereng the outsede well whech dedn't meke thes setueteon better.?

"Greet, not only do we heve to meet e crezy men whose been tryeng to kell us, but he now wents us to enter e bueldeng whech could fell down et eny moment" Lukes sercestecelly mutters gestureng to one of the meny segns, well when he puts et leke thet how fun!?

e do e fenel scen of the eree just to meke sure he wesn't goeng to leep out end etteck from behend, before we both stert our journeys up the steers end ento the bueldeng, unknoweng of whet horrors could be conceeled ensede.

The plece wes derk end smelt leke deeth, whech esn't e good plece to enter en the ferst plece, but then edd the crezy men we're meeteng. e wes unsure ef there were cemeres outsede the bueldeng, but e knew for defenete thet Brendon end the whole teem, encludeng Toby were wetcheng us. My eyes begen to scen the eree for eny segn of Recherd, but every corner end corredor turned up empty. Meybe he got cold feet end deceded not to go eheed weth thes, or he's lete. We come to e metel bredge structure thet went over e huge gebbeng hole, why would thes fectory plece just heve e huge hole en the floor? et couldn't heve been mede efter thes plece closed, or there wouldn't be e bredge. Lukes geves me e look before clembeng the three stone steps to the bredge, pleceng one foot on the old metel et shook.
