Chapter 93 - Reece-She's Missing
"As you can see, gentleman, my company's success rate with acquired businesses has been phenomenal. I have no reason to believe that your company wouldn't follow suit." I was currently in the middle of a meeting with the owners and operators of the bodyguard agency, but my mind was actually eleven hundred miles away. I couldn't stop reliving every moment with my sexy little temptress from the past two nights. I needed to stop it, I needed to focus.
"Mr. Gray, I see no reason not to proceed." The current owner of the company was smiling happily.
"Excellent. Then please, allow us to sign the contract. Once it's all done we wi-." I stopped mid sentence. I couldn't finish. I had just had the most intense feeling of my life. It felt like my Little Bunny had just called for help. I could feel her fear, taste the night air around her. It smelled like she was in town somewhere. Near the Thai restaurant by the university, but that made no sense, she couldn't leave the house.
"Mr. Gray, are you alright?" The middle aged man in the suit sitting across from me asked.
"I'm sorry gentlemen, but something has come up. I need to go, but I will be back shortly to finalize this paperwork. Either myself or a representative on my behalf." I was already rising to my feet, gathering my things. If Noah had been here I would have had him get them as I ran out of the room. But I was on my own today, so I had to do the bare minimum.
As soon as I left the meeting room I was on the phone with Noah. It was almost six-thirty, an hour behind home. It had gotten dark a long time ago and my Little Bunny was supposed to stay inside, so why did it feel like she was in danger, and that she was missing?
"Is the meeting finally over? Man I didn't think that thing was ever going to end."
"Something's wrong Noah." I said in a rush as I ran to the stairs.
"What is it? Are they not selling?"
"No, something's wrong back home, something's wrong with Trinity." I had reached the bottom of the three flights in no time at all. My car was parked right out front, I got in and sped off.
"Wrong how." He asked, finally taking the call seriously.
"I don't know yet, but I can sense she is in danger. She's scared, and I can tell she was near the university just now."
"That makes no sense at all, Reece. What's going on?"
"I don't know, but you call her and I will call the house."
I hung up with Noah as I sped toward the hotel. Mom, answered the call on the second ring.
"Hi Sweety, how-.?
"Mom, is Trinity there?" I interrupted her.
"What? Reece what's wrong?"
"Is she there?"
"No, she left with Caleb a little while ago." I felt my heart drop into the pit of my stomach when I heard those words.
"What are you talking about, Mom? Caleb isn't even supposed to be in town, let alone picking my mate up from the house." I growled into the phone.
"Is everything alright?" She asked me, I could hear the panic in her voice.
"No, Mom, it's not. I'm pretty sure that Caleb is in on all the attacks."
"Reece, no." Mom gasped.
"I'm on my way back, we need to find her."
I called Noah back as soon as I hung up with Mom.
"No, her phone went straight to voicemail."
"So they turned it off?" I snarled. "I'm almost back to the hotel, get everything ready and get out here quick, we're going back tonight, even if I have to charter a plane."
"I'm already on it."
I wasn't about to leave my mate to fight against whoever had her by herself. It was my job to protect her. It was my job to save her.
I'm coming, Little Bunny.
Noah was waiting for me outside when I pulled into the hotel driveway. He had our bags and threw into the car as soon as it came to a stop. He jumped into the front seat even as I was starting to speed away.
We made it to the airport just after seven. It hadn't even been an hour since I had known that something was wrong but I felt like it had been too long already.
I let Noah return the car while I tried to buy tickets. But I ran into a problem. There were no seats available on any flights back to Colorado without connections that would delay me too long. I needed to hurry.
Looks like I was going to follow through on my chartering comment. I would buy a whole damned plane to get me to where I needed to be dammit. This was LA, there were plenty of private planes for rent, I just needed to find one this late at night.
After nearly half an hour of searching, a copious amount of threats and a hefty bribe I managed to get a pilot who would fly us back home. The problem, they couldn't get clearance for the small airport right in our own city, the closest we could get was Denver, it was over an hour away and no where near the car we had waiting for us.
I made another call and had a car waiting for us as well. I would not waste a second once the plane landed. I was going to find my mate, and quickly.
I called Vincent to let him know what had happened. I knew it was his night off, but as the head of her security, he needed to know what had happened to Trinity, he needed to know that my Little Bunny was missing.
"Hey Boss, this is a surprise, I didn't expect a call from you. Aren't you on your business trip?" Vincent sounded so unassuming. He was not prepared to hear what I was about to tell him, he would blame himself as much as I blamed myself. If only I had brought her with me like she wanted, this wouldn't have happened.
"Vincent, I have some work I need you to do."
"What's wrong?" He could sense the tension in my voice, so I heard as it entered his to match mine.
"I am on my way back home now, but I am still a few hours away. Trinity is missing."
"What?!" He nearly shouted into the phone. "What happened? How can this be? She's not supposed to leave the house, how can she be missing?"
"Caleb came back. It seems my suspicions were right, and he took advantage of my absence."
"Caleb? Caleb took her?" He seemed to be in a state of shock. "Why would the Beta take her?"
"He wants to be alpha, so he has been working against me. I think he has been helping the rogues and Warlocks that are after her."
"He'll pay for this. I swear to you Sir, he will not get away with this."
"I'm glad to hear you say that. I intend to make him suffer for hurting her." I growled into the phone. "I need you to go investigate where she went missing, or where I think she went missing."
"Where? I'll get the others and go right away." His voice was alert and intense.
"From what I could sense, it seemed like she was near the university. It smelled like it was near the Thai restaurant."
"I will start at the house, ask if they know anything about where they went. Then, I will run a thorough search in town. I will have a report ready for you when you return."
"I would expect nothing less of you. You're a good man, Vincent."
"We will find her, Sir, I promise."
