Chapter 1.5 – Stress

Welcome back to another chapter of Random Paths! In the last chapter, Revan’s cronies complicated matters between Revan and Wolfgang and it ended up with Wolfgang’s family being put into protective custody by the criminals of Storybrook County. And now on with the story.

Zachariah was impressed with Agent Rand. He initially thought the kid was put on the case because he was cocky in his skills and needed a dose of reality. Or simply because his grandfather was Sinbad Rand, Master Thief of Moonlight Falls and the leader of the mafia there. But the kid was good. In both senses of the word. His good nature rubbed Zachariah the wrong way a lot of the time. All of the time, actually. But the kid had rescued Annalise without getting her killed or injured too badly beyond what Darius’s men had already done before he arrived. Then he pulled in favors and got juicy information on what Darius was up to. He also just gritted his teeth and didn’t comment when criminal activities were being discussed. And at times, Zachariah glimpsed the same coldness that Revan had. It’s what Zachariah guessed made Revan so dangerous.

Chapter 1.4 – Protection

Welcome back to another chapter of Random Paths! In the last chapter Kreia gave birth to a girl named Miranda, Brett and Kreia argued about her career choice yet again, and an alliance between cops and crooks was proposed by Agent Wolfgang Rand, Kreia’s nephew. And now on with the story.

“Is it safe to come in, Revan?” a voice came in over Kreia’s ear piece.

“How many times do I have to tell you people to not interrupt me when I’m interrogating people!” Kreia yelled into her ear piece. She took her hand off of the speak button on her mic and said, “Sit down with your hands behind your back. Just sit on the rope. One of my higher underlings who usually has a good reason for interrupting was the one who spoke on the intercom. I should probably see what he wants. And remember that I’m Revan. Not your Aunt Kreia. Respond to what I say appropriately.”

Chapter 1.3 – Family

Welcome back to another chapter of Random Paths! In the last chapter, the romance between Kreia and Brett evolved and at the end of the chapter they were married and celebrating the way new couples celebrate. And now on with the story!

A month or so had passed since Kreia Rand had become Kreia Wallis. She had been feelingĀ nauseousĀ and had just chalked it up to some bad food. She was about to go to the doctor to see if she had a nasty bug when she realized she was late. She smiled. She was pregnant.

While being pregnant did worry her, she would have to be super careful at work for a day or two while she got things set up for her underling from Moonlight Falls to watch over things. And for the fairy from Moonlight Falls to head undercover.

Who would have thought, a daughter of her brother’s best friend, would end up being such a wonderful asset. Kreia planned for Kerry Goodfellow to go deep undercover with Darius. If Kerry agreed. She didn’t want to just send her without her permission. She didn’t want that hanging over her head should Kerry get caught.

Chapter 1.2 – Blossoming Romance

Welcome back to another chapter of Random Paths! In the last chapter Kreia came clean to Brett about her reasons behind becoming a criminal and Brett mentioned that Alistair Mathiasen, a close friend of Kreia’s brother, is distantly related to him. Brett had also just asked Kreia out to the winter festival that came to town around Snowflake Day and Kreia had accepted. And now, on with the story!

Snowflake Day that year had come during an abnormally warm stretch. It was warm enough that Kreia had decided to go to it in her tank top and Brett could get away with his short sleeve shirt and vest.

They spent the first hour or so having a water balloon fight. Kreia due to her working out for her career, won most of the fights, but Brett didn’t go down easily during any of the fights.
