#WerewolfWeds The Hag - Chapter 21

Please check my #WerewolfWeds page for an overview of this. Thanks.

Bilge came back with Albrecht. Albrecht carried a large bag. Bilge looked around, as they came inside, Steopa almost left. Teodor stopped him.

“It's alright,” he said. “They have no issue with you.”

Steopa stay in the shadows, but he did not leave.

Bilge took out a cigar. “My god, look at the mess she made of them.”

Albrecht nodded. “That is why I do not mess with revenants, they get sick of doing your bidding.”

“Can you help him?” Amanda asked. She pointed to TJ.

Albrecht put the bag down. “I have clothes in there,” he said. Then he got down on one knee and examined TJ.

“He'll live. I'll get him to the hospital,” Albrecht said

Bilge walked over to Peter's corpse. “I've never seen this. And we ran into some very nasty spirits.”

“Looks like she mummified him,” Teodor said.

Bilge touched Peter's face. “No, tanned him. Like leather.”

Amanda handed Teodor a pair of pants. “I'm glad she gone.”

“Trucker will be happy,” Teodor said. “By the way, you could have told us about iron.”

Bilge looked up. “What do you mean?”

“She did not like my sword,” Steopa said.

Both Bilge and Albrecht started. Steopa stepped out of the shadows. Bilge craned his neck. Albrecht stood up.

“So you are not a myth,” Albrecht said.

Steopa tilted his head.

“About three years ago, I started hearing stories of a giant vampire."

Steopa bowed. Teodor smirked.

“Can you take him to a hospital?” Amanda said.

Albrecht nodded. “Yes, help me pick him up."

Bilge walked over to Steopa. He studied him, while smoking the cigar. “That's a nice coat.”

“We should go,” Teodor said. “The boys are probably waiting for us.”

“You still have to hide out,” Bilge said. “Or change your look.”

“The police are still after me.” Teodor rubbed his chin, he could feel the rough start of a beard.

Steopa scoffed.

“Steopa, I am trying to blend in, remember.”

Bilge patted Teodor on his shoulder. “I'll wait outside.”

Amanda walked over to Teodor. “I'm going with Bilge, if you don't come out, I'll see you tomorrow.”

“Give a hug to Trucker for me,” Teodor said.

He kissed Amanda. She hugged him and left. Steopa raised his eyebrow.

“What?” Teodor asked.

“I see why you want to now.” Steopa flung his hair behind him.

“Good.”

“She is a good woman,” Steopa said. “Who is Trucker?”

Teodor and him walked out of the cider warehouse. “One of the street kids. He has this tough act, but is really a sweet kid.”

“Does he understand what you and Amanda are?” Steopa asked.

Teodor nodded. “He saw us.”

Steopa opened the outside door. “And he was not scared?”

“Not with us.”

They left the building, just as the rear lights on Bilge's car disappeared around a corner.

“So you don't mind me bunking with you until the cops stop looking for me?” Teodor asked.

“You are always welcomed,” Steopa said.

Teodor looked back at the cider warehouse. “I'm glad it's over.”
