Caleb questions a journalist
The Binding of the Halo Series
Caleb walked through the busy newsroom with his mind set on tying up a few loose ends. When he came to the door, he pushed down the handle and walked inside the office. He moved through the maze of desks and headed to the back of the room. Caleb stopped a few feet in front of the desk of the man he was looking for. The man behind the desk, Mr. Dobson, looked up at Caleb and frowned.
Question: “Do you know who I am? Don’t lie to me because I will know.”
Answer: “No, I don’t,” Mr. Dobson said in a deadpan tone. He leaned to his left, looking past Caleb and out into the bustling newsroom.
Caleb figured Mr. Dobson was most likely looking for security but unfortunately, they were tied up.
Response: “I was born in 1806 near the city New Dominion to a wealthy planter. Your “club” has been looking for me since 1826.”
Mr. Dobson shifted in his seat. He smirked but his expression didn’t look like one of a man who just heard that he was talking to a fossil.
Response: “Well, my “club” wasn’t even around in 1826.”
Caleb crossed the distance in a flash and grabbed the man by his throat, lifted him out of the chair, and stared him in his wide terrified brown eyes.
Response: “Blink once for yes or I will snap your neck. Do you know of me?” Caleb hissed.
Mr. Dobson opened his mouth and gasped for air as he blinked once.
Response: “Then, you know that I’m not a patient man.”
The man blinked again.
Question: “So, you must know that playing with me will only lead to your death, which I promise to make painful, or will you give me the respect I’m due?
Mr. Dobson blinked once.
Response: “Good,” Caleb said, then lowered the man back down into his chair and stepped back. “Who am I?”
Coughing, Mr. Dobson rubbed his neck.
Response: “Your birth name is Caleb Scott. You are…something other than human but we don’t know what. You aren’t a vampire or any fabled creature, as far as we know. And you are responsible for over two hundred deaths.”
Response: “I love history, Mr. Dobson. I believe that you can learn a great deal from a just a glimpse into the past. That is why I’ve left you and your…club alone. But you have stumbled upon someone dear to me. So, I will make this offer once and only once. Destroy all you have on Cianne Baxter and forget about her, her kidnapping, and the odd incident with the dogs. Or I will add seventy-five more bodies to that grossly inaccurately low sum you and your club have.” Caleb looked down, focusing on the man’s crotch where urine was soaking through his pants. “I’m glad we understand one another.” Caleb slowly looked over at the family photo on Dobson’s desk. “Understand me, Mr. Dobson?”
Mr. Dobson nodded frantically.
In a flash of light, Caleb disappeared. He needed to get to Arizona and Cianne.
