“I used to advertise my loyalty and I don't believe there is a single person I loved that I didn't eventually betray.”

It was in the early hours of the morning when everyone had assembled upon Bo's houseboat. The guests had been dispatched to their various homes, the little floating house had been cleaned up, and a few people had even managed to indulge in some catnaps along the way. Rory had been awoken from a sound sleep and dragged over -- this was going to be a situation that would benefit from having extra fur and fang.
"So. Let me get this straight. Mike has an Anshega girlfriend who's on the run from her pack, and we're following her to find her...?" Rory said, sprawling across the couch and looking at Michael and Avery. "Who is this girl? Is she, like, pretty?"
In truth, that was the question. But Maddy had called Michael, and not her alpha. Even if Lucas had her best interests at heart, Maddy hadn't wanted his help. More than that, whatever was going on, someone had attacked the Fire-Touched woman, which meant something strange was going on...
Before the explanation could progress very much, there was a sharp knock on the door -- this despite it being about three in the morning. Bo opened the door, and there in the threshold stood a young woman of about average height. She was pale, with a few tattoos visible, most notably a black cat with an arched back across her forearm. Her hair was an unruly mop of carrot-orange, and the dark brown eyes half-hidden beneath her bangs had a lively spark in them. She was dressed in jeans and a rose-colored tanktop with an elaborate, dark-red flower emblazoned above her breasts, a drab-green army jacket thrown over her shoulder. She held upright a lime-green bicycle, and there was a messenger bag slung over one shoulder.
"Morning Citizen. Where can I leave this?" She greeted Bo, then leaned in and waved at Michael before turning her vivid eyes towards Avery and Rory. "Name's Allie Newton. Mike, this had better be important, I'm skipping meals here because of you."
