Declan opened his suitcase and selected a tie, then made quick work of pulling it on and situating it before rolling his sleeves to the middle of his forearms. “I’ll have Maisy help me with that.” Nodding at Forge he asked, “Do you have your badge?”
Forge patted his back pocket. “I do.” He grinned and turned to Blair and Lucas. “The rest of us, along with Dane, Sayyna, and Palle can cover the hotel, locate the bastard, and keep an eye on whatever he’s up to. Maisy has already posed as part of the security for the band, so he’ll be avoiding her. That will actually allow her and Declan to move about more freely since our target will be dodging them.”
“What’s that about your badge? You’re not a cop anymore.” Lucas said.
Declan chuckled. “Once a cop, always a cop.”
“Yep,” Forge said. “See, I do this.” He pulled his badge out, held it up, then squared his shoulders, put a stern look on his face, and stuffed his badge back into his pocket. “Most people see nothing but my badge. They don’t look at it closely enough to know I’m not actually local PD or FBI or Homeland Security. For most people, a badge is a badge and they’ll either run from me or cooperate. It’ll get me into places without having to break in, if needed.”
Lucas held up his arm. “Gentlemen, sync your wristbands.”
Forge moaned, Blair laughed, and Declan rolled his eyes, then slid one arm around Lucas’s waist and kissed his cheek. While they communicated predominantly via their earbuds, the wristbands they wore were also essential. They kept time, could administer a shot of adrenaline—allowing a vampire to be seen in a mirror or on camera quickly—and boosted their earbud range. In an emergency they became tracking and locator signaling devices. Though that last part, Blair had decided, needed upgrading. He was working on that.
