Sadie could feel herself feeling sick again, this time due to the unease. She cleared her throat.  “Drain cleaner. That’s the shit they used to kill the popular chick in that old 80s movie right? You think that would work?”

(Hell ya let’s make this Heathers)

“Let me know if it isn’t,” Elijah told her, leaving the room to grab his keys.

Jaime shrugged, "I mean, probably," Jaime siad, but he didn't trust that Malcolm would be stupid enough to drink a glass of it. "What the hell, let's just go for it," Jaime said, putting the drain cleaner aside.


Norah got Sophie from her perch and waited for him by the door, "I'm sure it'll be fine," Norah assured him.

Sadie nodded and sat back. “Okay, it’s settled then. We’ll bring Grace some of this stuff at the meetup.”

[should we skip them a bit?]

Perhaps a day or so after they've met with Grace?)

(okie!)

It had been a couple days since they'd met with Grace and given her the drain cleaner and they had not heard a word, nor had they seen anything on the news about Malcolm's tragic death. That was, until a package arrived addressed to their apartment. Jaime sat on the couch with the box in his lap, too scared to open it up. "I can't do it," he siad, passing the box to Sadie.

Sadie stared at the box, half scared their plan had failed and they’d been sent a bomb. “I really hope Astrid ordered something online.” She used a knife to cut the tape and opened the box slowly.

"Maybe it's from Norah and Elijah," Jaime said as he watched Sadie open the box. He peaked over her shoulder to get a good look at what was inside, "Oh god, no..." Jaime said, covering his mouth with his hand, feeling instantly ill. Inside the box was Grace's Daemon with a fork stabbed through her chest.

Sadie dropped the box immediately and the knife along with it. She went pale as she realized what had happened. “Oh my god. Oh my god this is my fault.”

Jaime stared at the box, unable to get any more words out. Grace was either dead or comatose, and it was all their fault. Jaime buried his face in his hands and started to sob.

Sadie’s mind kicked into overdrive, panic gripping her. They knew. How they had found out she didn’t know, but now it was abundantly clear they knew where they were. “We’re dead.” She ran to the front door, making sure it was locked right and pulled all the curtains closed. Once she was sure the apartment was secure, she sat and pulled Jaime close.

Jaime hadn't even considered how Malcolm knew it was them or how he knew where they were living. He was too consumed with grief and guilt; he pressed his forehead into Sadie's shoulder and continued to sob.

"What's going on in here? I'm trying to sleep," Astrid complained as she emerged from the bedroom. She stared at Sadie and Jaime on the couch, then the box on the ground with the dead bird inside.

Jaime lifted his head from Sadie's shoulder and turned to look at Astrid, his grief-stricken face clouding over with anger. "You." he accused. It was the only thing that made sense to him in that moment, "Somehow, he knows it was us. He knows where we are. How could he? Unless you told him!?" Jaime continued
