Ciara had noticed nothing suspicious around the area of the Inferno's Night. She began to make her way inside, and stared at the long queue that waited to get in. They moaned as she walked straight to the front, and saw Jimmy the bouncer nod at her. He unhooked the velvet rope, and let her straight in. She walked to the bar and took her jacket off.
Ciara arrived to the facility in record time. She could never get used to the building she had to report to since she had started. The Hidden Haven as it had been known to be called was a Hunter facility built next to an abandoned subway. It was mostly underground but had emergency exits in a pub nearby called The Golden Horseshoe, a strictly Hunter-only joint. As she walked down the grimy steps she was met by the usual guard. She was never told his name, and when she had tried to ask, he shooed her away. She pitied the guards that worked here, as they had to appear to be homeless seeking shelter in the abandoned subway, and had to make sure normals didn't make their way to the entrance. She waved to the guard who nodded as she walked down the tracks, and to a panel hidden by some undergrowth. She hated touching the undergrowth, as it was always freshly put there, but she placed her hand on the panel and spoke clearly, "Domino entering the boneyard." Every agent of the Hidden Haven had their own code phrase. Something linked to their ID, and recognised only in their voice. The Hunter Society had built this so that no one could enter unauthorised. Ciara heard the gears to the door shift, and a hole in the wall appeared. Now was for phase two. She walked in, and the door shut behind her. She was in darkness for a moment before the room lit up with lights. The light flickered all over her, and she knew the scanner was almost done. It was a specially designed scanning system that scanned your blood, and the DNA in it. There were many beings in this world like Changelings or Shapeshifting Mystics that could replicate everything except the inside of the body; the blood could not be changed. She waited a moment as a red light shone in the corner, it turned green, and another door slid open. "Welcome Agent Domino," a female voice announced. It was the automated system. Ciara had always thought it was an artificial intelligence, but was always explained it was just a voice programmed to answer. "I need access to my room, and my supplies, and don't tell The Control I'm here," Ciara announced as she walked down a corridor.
Chapter 1 - Frost (Part 1)
For those who are reading this, my name is Ciara Frost. That is pronounced Key-ara, I don't like it when people get my name wrong. I am Agent Domino, a classified agent within the Hunter Society. You won't know what that is though. There are a few things you may need to know before you read what happened, a few things about the world that we live in. Where to stat? How about I explain what the Hunter Society is? There are normal humans out there, almost like yourself, and then there are people like me. We have abilities, enhancements, that mean we can fight threats that ordinary people can't. We are the elite people of the world that fight Immortal criminals of this world. You might think you know what immortal means, because you know about the story of Dracula or studied all about the myths and legends gone by; it is not what you think though. Everything supernatural, weird, and made in a fantasy land exists or existed, well almost everything. Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, Ghosts and all other monsters from those tales are real. Except that they aren't monsters, well not all of them, most of them are people; people who are different and most who just want a normal life even if that normal life usually lasts around a thousand years rather than eighty to a hundred. Enough about that, that is the basics, I'm sure you'll find out more.
