Sure, I suppose I could tell you a little bit about me. Don’t know why you’d want to know, but sure. Sit.
I grew up in foster care— bounced around with no real family but my brother. He was always the brave one, but I was the strong one. He stuck up for me and kept a brave face, but when he was done getting told off he’d run right back to me, and I’d make him laugh. I miss him, y’know?
Anyway, that’s not important. When we got out of grade school he went to school for anthropology. I went for archaeology. We were both pretty smart, got good grades and all that jazz. It’s funny, I always had a thing for scary stories, and my brother could tell ones would make the hair on your neck stand up—but I wouldn’t in a million years have guessed that I’d be chasing those self-same stories, all grown up and on the road.
He wouldn’t believe me if I told him.
Hell, you probably don’t believe me and I’m telling you right now.
Things in Cam’s pockets:
pocketful of orange-gold-yellow feathers
Tablet computer with “call Alpha” button
Piece of paper with address and Michelle Two-Turtles’ phone number
Keys to the Van
Cam’s Rules of the Road
1. Move over. I’m driving.
2. If you’re going to lie, keep it extremely simple.
3. Keep guns holstered and knives sheathed in the van. End of story.
4. The police are not particularly helpful. At least not when it involves dead monsters.
5. Don’t pick up random people. They can apparently turn out to be slashers.
6. No more psychos.
7. Don’t get attached.
