Arrival in Austin

Location: Austin, Texas
Date/Time: Fall

I am sure if you told me a few years ago, or even a few weeks ago that I would arrive in Austin with a small severance package, no memory of the last 14 years and no magic I would have laughed at you, or asked you what drugs you were on.

Yesterday though I found myself in Austin, with a small severance package, knowing nobody at all. I don’t even know why I left the government. The partial amnesia I was given erased almost everything I remember from that time period that was work related.

This was a nice little Amtrak Station in Austin

I remember my friend Rose, I remember I must have had a nice house, got paid a good wage and traveled a lot when hunting. I also remember someone calling me Dust Princess. That is about it though.

I arrived in the afternoon, the heat in this place is heavy even in November. I am used to hot summers in Detroit, and I am sure I did hot summers with my work, but this just seemed too warm for it not being summer.

I ended up in a place called Kick Butt Coffee, Music and Booze. A dark coffee specializing bar that has live music. I was even more surprised it wasn’t country music either. They do have decent donuts, the music is slightly alternative and it didn’t take long for me to get over the awkwardness.

The real reason I had come to Kick Butt Coffee was to meet with Kylo. Yes, you heard that name right, although after meeting him he seems pretty cool and I will try and minimize my bad jokes about his name. In addition the man is homeless, he doesn’t like to be inside so he only stayed for a short while.

Evidently K is also an ex-Paranormal Threat Force Team member. He had his mind scrambled, but it did more serious damage to him. However, he came out to meet with me and make sure he knew he would help if he could. Evidently two others have quit in the past, but both are dead.

I told K about what I remembered, which wasn’t much. He said he would look around and see if he could find me anything about that situation, or even about working. I figure if he can help with working, maybe I can get a decent place.

K told me he would keep in contact with me, and he would try and help me if he could. The thing is he may be a homeless guy, but he seems to know what is happening and could definitely come in useful, also he seems like a nice guy.


I left the bar and went to the Holiday Inn that is paid for a week for me. It isn’t a bad place to set up and get my bearings. I still have no idea why the me before my amnesia wanted to go here, but here I am.

While I was at the hotel I called Rose. She and I talked for a long time, with our normal banter of calling each other a whore and seeing who had better sex since we last talked. She told me about a couple she hooked up with but were really just breeding mouth breathers, it was funny.

She also talked about her gig in robotics and prosthetics. She was always better at the corporate thing. She also told me she knew I had a house, evidently I used to bitch about getting the deck redone. She also said I had a boyfriend that burned out hot and heavy about a year ago.

She also said I was really upset by being there, at my job.

I am not sure what would make me so upset to quit a 100k+ a year job with all the benefits. I know I was a mercenary. I know I hunted others, and probably humans as well. None of that really bothers me even now, so what happened that made me quit.

She did say she knew a guy named Mitch Kovak who could get me some work at a strip club here. It won’t be my mainstay, but its easy money and especially with the shape changing trick I get good cash to keep me going between work.

She asked if I would go check on her niece Virginia as well. Her niece lives in Mason Texas, works using her degree at the theater, and normally will sit and watch Netflix with her Niece (online of course). She disappeared about a week ago and was hoping I would check on her. Of course I would, she is closer than a sister to me, Rose just has to say what she needs and I will get it for her.

Next Up, Mason TX!

I will go do that tomorrow. I will get a vehicle, some weapons and head over. Hopefully it is nothing bad anyways.
