I faked a smile for Adam. "Vince says you have some information for me."

He sat down at his desk and flipped through some papers. "Yeah. Here it is," he said, focusing on one paper. "Marguerite is believed to be living in Delphic Cove, Washington. She's apparently unaware that vampires even exist."

We both laughed.

"Humans today," I said, rolling my eyes.

Adam reached under his desk and handed me an ugly shaped lavender bag. "You'll need this."

I looked at it suspiciously. "What is it?"

"It's called a backpack. Humans use them to carry school books."

I raised an eyebrow. "Seriously? Vince expects me to carry that around?"

Adam smirked. "I only wish I could see it myself."

Glaring at him, I snatched the bag from his hand. "Do you have an address or any other useful information?"

"You're lucky that we know what town she's in-and it's a pretty small town from what I understand. Not too long ago we thought she was dead. Soon she really will be."

"If you need anything while you're out, you're to report to me. Vince has said that he isn't to be disturbed today."

"Yeah, I know," I lied. I hated how Adam thought he was above me. He always expected me to treat him as a superior when he should have treated me as the superior. I was working with Vince. Adam was a mere sidekick. "See you around."

"Oh, before you go, put this into your backpack." He handed me a stuffed manila envelope.

"What's in here?"

"Fake IDs and other paperwork you might need if you end up needing to enroll in the school or get a job," he said, and then snickered.

"I'm not getting a job," I said as I slipped the envelope into the bag.

When I got outside, I pulled my phone out of my purse. It was close to six, so I would have time to for a quick bite before pretending to be a teenage human. I clicked on the GPS app to figure out where Delphic Cove was. Three hundred miles south; I could run there in no time.

I grumbled curses at Adam as I put the backpack on and then I began running, keeping my eyes out for an easy target. I couldn't afford to risk getting thirsty. I hadn't been in a group of humans in too long, and I didn't want to take any chances. I had a job to do.

About twenty minutes later, I was running along an empty back country road when I saw a jogger. They made it so easy with those earbuds blasting music. It was easy enough when they were alone, but throw in that distraction and it removed the challenge completely.
