Mission report entry four
Saturday midnight just after plan landed I was met by a young woman who was dressed in a hoodie and jeans trying not to draw attention to herself. It was my client my first client actually, she was an actress who had been getting threats to leave the city from some unknown person. I was given the case cause they thought it would be a simple job guard her home, and while shes at the theater for practice.
Monday Rehearsal, She hadn't said much of anything to me since I met her the day before. She seems to be nervous around me almost as if she was scared I wasn't who I said I was, no other way to convince her since I already showed her the badge I was given when joining.
Conversation with the owner of the theater
Edward: Matthew was it? I have a few questions I would like to ask you before we continue the tour and my inspection of possible entry ways. When did the threats first start coming in for miss Julia? She said she only started getting them when she got the part of leading lady is that true?
Matthew: Yes that is true she showed me the letter the moment she opened it and screamed as if someone had just attacked her, but when I kicked in the door I saw her shaking and holding the letter like her life depended on it. Actually I still have the original letter in my office since I thought we should show the police but Julia refused saying that she did not want to bother the Police with this. I still believe she should have instead of spending money on a bodyguard.
Edward: I will take your Opinions into consideration during my stay here Now where is the letter I would like to see it and while I am looking it over please continue looking for any possible entry ways the person could use to sneak in here and lock them I want them unable to enter here though other means then the front door and even then I will be looking everyone who isn't staff over as they enter.
Matthew: I understand please follow me then I'll show you to my office and the letter. It is actually quiet strange as the letter seemed to be written using penmanship and cut out pieces of magazine letters.
Matthew showed me to his office and I took a look around before sitting down to read the letter, Matthew left me there alone and I went over the letter carefully reading every line and trying to figure out why this person was sending Julia threatening letters. As I read the letter I got nowhere as the person never once mentioned why they wanted Julia to leave almost as if they weren't truly mad or angry at her just picked her at random. Putting the letter into a plastic bag and then slipping it into my pocket I left the room and returned to checking the other entries and the roof of the building to make sure it was safe and no one could enter with out using the front door actors, staff, and guests I would check them all before letting them pass into the building.
Tuesday after rehearsal, Me and Julia met back stage to talk as I had been checking everyone who walked through the front door and explained to everyone that this was to keep them safe as well as Julia. No Letters have shown up since I arrived and took charge of guarding Julia almost as if the person who was threatening her backed off that is until we entered her dressing room to find it trashed and a letter in the middle of the floor. Like the first on I saw I started reading this one over and this time it mentioned that they were upset with her hiring someone to watch over her. I pocketed the letter like the first one and turned to her to talk, yet Julia was shaking and scared of what was going on.
Edward: Julia its okay, The room can be cleaned and everything fixed with in a day I'll even do it myself if I have to so please tell me what is going on and why is this person threatening you when you got this role. Do you know anything about them anything at all to help me figure this out as you see they are starting to get angry from what is in this new letter.
Julia: I don't know anything I haven't seen anyone enter of leave here that you didn't approve of. Please Edward you have to help me I don't want to be hurt and I don't want to loose my dream of acting here.
I watched as Julia fell to her knees and began to cry into her hands with no way to console her I sat down next to her and sighed lightly with out a word I let her get out the frustration that this was putting onto her and I tried to go over the two letters to see if I can spot any similarities between them. As I looked through the letters I started to notice how the person wrote out certain letters and without a word I put them back into my jacket.
Julia: Edward thank you for all you have done for me so far. You have Protected me and are even trying to figure out who this person is and I hope you do. I want you to so you can teach them a lesson on what its like to be scared out of your mind for following your dream.
Edward: I will find them Julia don't you worry I will find them and get them for this. Now I think you should stay put while I clean up this place a bit then we can go back to your home and you can get a good nights sleep.
Julia: I understand thank you again Edward you are a Gem in my darkest time. Please never change and continue being so kind.
Julia sat there still as I got back up and began cleaning up the mess that was once a dressing room. As I picked up pieces of glass and metal I noticed something, blood and it was fresh. With out a word to Julia I left the room and went to the other actors checking their hands for cuts and any blood but non showed signs of bleeding or a cut. So I turned to the rest of the staff and found nothing, I couldn't check everyone if I tried as most had already left after being aloud to leave. So I returned to the dressing room and hide the pieces with blood on them and began fixing up the room a bit enough for Julia to have a decent place to change before the show.
Back at Julia's house I patrolled the front and back yard using the side of the house to connect them and keep an eye out for anyone trying to use a window or door to enter the house. Julia was safe for another night as I took a break inside I sat on the couch and kept an ear out for the sound of breaking glass or someone trying to open one of the locked windows.
Wednesday Three days before the show and Julia was nervously pacing in her dressing room or at least what I could save of the dressing room from the other nights attack. I was standing at the front of the building checking everyone over for bandages, weapons and anything else that could cause damage or injure someone. I found a few things and confiscated them and locked them away before checking the people over for cuts once more. Among them I had to stop the producer who had his hands bandaged as if they were horribly cut up. I confront him on this and he quickly made the excuse he cut himself while cooking but I found it hard to believe as he was the only one able to sneak past me and make the letters while in his office.
Edward: Why would you give me the Letter if you were just going to send more with the same writing style.
Matthew: I wanted my daughter to have the part that's why! This woman got the part cause I was out voted and my daughter was made the understudy I would do anything to help my daughter be the star.
Edward: Then I place you under arrest for your attempts to cause harm to Julia and I'm pretty sure you are fired as well seeing as your boss paid for my visit and protection of Julia.
Matthew would stutter and look around as the man who hired Edward stepped out from the theaters main hall and looks at Edward holding Matthew in a spot so he couldn't run away, The man that hired Edward walked over and starts talking
Rome: So is he the one that has been sending the letters and threatening the star of our show?
Edward: Yes he has been the one sending the letters and even trashed her dressing room last night I have cleaned up most of it but he gave himself away cause of the blood he left behind during my clean up so I had been looking for someone who had there hands cut up from trashing the mirror and a piece of metal that had cut their hands.
Rome: I see then Matthew You are fire and I will be calling the cops for what you have done.
Matthew knew he couldn't talk his way out of this so just stayed quiet as he looked down and said nothing, he was lade to his old office and cuffed to the chair till the police arrived and dragged him out of the building yelling that he was doing this for his daughter. But that only caused his daughter to resent him and told me as I was reading to leave that she was glade I found the nutcase causing all this trouble for the show she dreams of one day staring in. I received a kiss on the cheek as a thank you and left for the air port to return to the organization.
