I closed the door to my office and started walking down the hall of my building. "Hey chapara, we're going to meet the new client in a few hours. Where are you going?" "To the gym I have a training session with the new guys." Gabe just looked at me with his disapproving stare. "As lo que te pege la puta gana" (Do whatever the fuck you want). I continued down the corridor with a smirk plastered on my face.
I'm Rubi Ash Hernandez. The Hellhound, literally. I co-own a security company with my best friend and roommate Gabriel Fernandez, the shadow dragon, also literally. Wolf Pack Security, it might sound familiar this is because we're a world renowned security company, most, if not all, of our employees are either sups, short for supernatural beings, or ex-military people.
Our headquarters are packed with people at all hours of the day. I designed this building personally, every brick to doorknob in this place was hand picked by me. I know every crook and cranny, every secret room and restricted area is engraved in my mind. This fortrase is my baby, don't mess with my baby unless you want me to bash your skull. Another thing, don't challenge me on my own turf, because I promise you will regret it.
"OK FRESH MEAT, GET YOUR FUCKING ASSES INTO GEAR!" "YES MAM!" Perfect, just the way I like it. As I said I was training the new guys, today I happen to be working with sups.
We usually tend to separate the sups from the humans during training so we can train not only physically but with their powers too, we don't want to freak out the humans. In this particular session I had a great amount of vampires, about a third of the people, and a few witches, wardlocks, and wolves.
"This job is extremely demanding, even for a sups. You need to keep in shape and have a mastery of your power just in case they are needed in a grave situation. You will train with me or Shadow on a daily basis," everybody goes by code names given to them depending on what their speciality is.
"I don't give a a flying shit about what specias you're from, what ranking you are, or your stupid racial wars. Everybody in this building is of equal importance, everybody here, human or sup. This is your family, pack, coven, clan, whatever you choose to call it. You will treat them as such. I don't care who the hell you are, you will show respect."
I paced in front of the newbies. "You have all been hand picked to be part of this family based on who you are and your ability to be here so there will be no demeaning of abilities or species, understand?" "Yes Mam" "But why should I respects these muts?"
A strong growl spurred from deep in my vocal cords. Of course, there is always one idiota. 'Let's shift' said Umbra. She's my other best friend and my hellhound, she's been with me since i was a child. Fair warning, she hates being called a wolf.
'Uma, if we shift you will have to give me control' 'But why Ash?' 'Uma you know you will lose control' 'It's just that I hate this disrespectfulness towards other species' 'I know, I do too baby girl but you lose control' 'Fine.' She gave in and we shifted.
I heard my bones cracking as they started to rearrange themselves. My fingers grew into sharp, black claws, my face elongated into a snout. I felt fur sprouting on my spine and tail.
In the exact same spot I stood a few seconds ago now stood a giant black "wolf." I heard the door open behind me as I started addressing everybody in front of me, instead of doing a mindlink I projected my voice out loud, something only a hellhound can do.
"I SAID IT ONCE AND EVEN THOUGH I DON'T LIKE REPEATING MYSELF I WILL SAY IT ONCE MORE, I DON'T GIVE A FLYING FUCK ABOUT WHAT SPECIAS YOU'RE FROM, WHAT RANKING YOU ARE IN THE SUPERNATURAL WORLD, OR ABOUT YOUR STUPID AS FUCK RACIAL WARS, EVERYBODY IN THIS BUILDING IS FAMILY AND IN THIS FAMILY YOU SHOW RESPECT, IF YOU LACK IT YOU WILL BE IMEDATLY REMOVED FROM THIS ESTABLISHEMENT AND I WILL PERSONLAY MAKE SURE YOU NEVER WORK IN THE SECURITY BUISNESS AGAIN, UNDERSTOOD?" "YES MAM!" They called out after my little speech.
I turned to the little bastard that thought it was ok to disrespect others and transformed into my human form again. Fully closed, to the surprise of everybody in the room, another thing special to hellhounds. I walked over to the vampire that commented about wolves, looked him straight in the eyes and asked again.
"Understood?" the idiot started shaking in his pants. Now take in mind I'm a short ass bitch so for this dude, who was at least half a foot taller than me, to be shiting his pant I'm scary as fuck. "Y-yes ma-ma'am" I looked at him with a smirk on my face and said
"Perfect, now this guy behind me is Ryan, the Ripper, Fox. He is an alpha tiger, the reason he was given the code name Ripper, apart from the obvious, is because he is a master in both hand in hand and animal form combat. He will help with training for the shifters. Jannet, Angel, Charming will help with both vampires and magic possess, she is a witch and vampire hybrid, you will meet her tomorrow. Ripper will show you around the place and the sup only places, you are not allowed in the human training rooms, you will have contact with humans and will be around them, the only place where you will be separated from them is during group trainings or when you train your powers on your own, other than this you will all be mixed. I expect you to behave and keep your powers a secret. Afterwards you will be allowed to leave or show you your room depending on whether you requested a room to live in or not."
I looked around the room and straight into the eyes of everyone. They all nodded at me in understandment, I continued "It was a pleasure to meet you all, tengan un buen dia y nos vemos mañana.(have a good day and see you tomorrow)"
"Where are you? The meeting is almost over and we need you here to sign the contract" "I'm going, can I go in my training close? I just finished and won't have time to change if I go there now " ''That fine just get here now," 'Ugh, so demanding' 'Always have, always will' Um let out a wolfish laugh. I had a shit eating grin plastered on my face the rest of the way to Gabes office.
When I got there I saw a blue haired man sitting on the chair across his desk. "Hello gentlemen." I said from my position leaning against the door frame. "Why hello beautiful," said the blue haired guy getting up from the chair, making his way towards me.
I plastered a smile on my face and said "Sorry, I don't get involved with clients," I looked at Gabe "He's not a client, he's a representative of the client." I looked back at the guy, he took my hand and kissed the back of it. Ah a ladies man of course. "Well it doesn't matter, you're in one of my offices and involved with one of my clients. You're off the list, sorry baby boy." I saw a smirk flash on his face "You'll change your mind, beautiful" 'Uh no, we won't, sorry not sorry' I smirked at Umbra's remark as I leaned over the table to sign the contract.
