Ellen poured them drinks and slid the second glass to Tamara before sitting down. "Are you going to tell me what's wrong, or do I have to guess?"
Tamara rested her arms on the table, ignoring the drink. "I found a nest full of demons and I don't want to go in alone. There, I said it." It'd been a couple of years since Isaac died, but she still had chills whenever she had to face more than one demon.
Ellen agreed to go with her.
"I'm not stupid," not this time, "so I have all the intel we need."
Even with all her preparations and a partner at her side, Tamara could still feel the awful taste of bile in the back of her throat. It'd been years since she'd encounter more than one demon, but it felt like it was too soon.
Ellen lightly clasped Tamara's shoulder before letting go, a sign of reassurance in case Tamara needed it. She did.
"We'll take it nice and easy, just like you planned. And if something goes pear shaped, we'll follow your back up plan." Ellen paused. "There's nothing wrong with passing this to another hunter."
That fired up Tamara.
"I can do this." Tamara quirked her lips. "It's not like the apocalypse is going to wait for me to get over this fear."
Ellen laughed. "Possibly not, but I can wait. That's what friends are for, remember?"
They made their way to the abandoned warehouse on the edge of town where the demons were located. Taking a deep breath, Tamara stormed the place with Ellen right on her tail. It took awhile, how could it not with five demons in their own territory, but they managed to send each and every demon back to the pit.
It felt good.
