"I'm already looking into the warehouse."Monday afternoon
"And don't tell Ayel what you're doing, okay?"
"A partnership that has an employee who has a security license."
"Kristi likes photos of beds in dim light?"
Ayel jumped out of the van as soon as it stopped moving in the warehouse's parking lot. She dashed to join Kristi and Kieu at the main entrance. "I got your message. What's up?"
"You got me," Kristi said. "Aidan asked me to round everyone up. Did you get the report done for Mr. Morton?"
"Right here." Ayel pulled a manila envelope out from under her jacket. "Feels wrong to just say that the carving's clean now without saying how."
"Got you covered." Kristi opened her shoulder bag. A tiny hand pushed up a box of table salt. "Ginger! I told you to stay behind."
Ginger's head poked up from the bag. "I wanted to see."
Kristi rubbed her forehead. "Don't let anyone else see you, okay? It's going to be difficult enough selling what we're about to do without having to explain a fae in my purse."
Kieu knelt down to face Ginger. "Having fun yet?"
Ginger giggled. "Hiding's fun for a bit, then it gets boring."
"Well, don't get too bored, okay?" Kieu stood back up. "What's with the salt?"
"It works on Supernatural." Kristi shrugged. "I'll sprinkle some in the carvings' crate, say something about the purity of the crystals, and take credit for all of Ginger's hard work. Ginger, I will get you a special coffee when we're done here."
Ayel slipped the envelope back in her jacket. "Let's go see Alex, then."
Kristi stepped in front of the blonde woman, blocking her way to the entrance. "Aidan asked to be here, too." The tawny-haired woman pointed at the street and a red hatchback approaching. "I think that's him."
The hatchback turned into the warehouse's parking lot and coasted to a stop. Aidan got out of the car and waved to the women. "Have you talked to anyone inside yet?"
Kristi walked over to the slim man. "Not yet. What's up?" She tilted her head in Ayel's direction. "Is this what we talked about yesterday?"
Aidan held up several pages of printed paper. "Everything is detailed here." He gave a sheet of paper to Kristi. "One for everyone."
