"Upstairs in the library, I will let him know that he's needed."

Lee left the room and towards the entryway again where she pulled on a light fixture in order to reveal a hidden door and stairs leading up.

She went upstairs to the library and knocked on the paneling to get the Gangrel's attention.

"Supplicant Theim, your presence is required downstairs."

"Hmhm.....hum, what?" came the answer confused. Theim looked around, looked down at the book he was reading, realized where he was and put it back in it's place.
"I mean, certainly, on my way!" He opened the door and smiled at Lee."I am right behind you." He followed her back into the Room where he first met everyone.

"You would be partially correct." Sinclair flashed her odd smile again.

"So we are having a bit of a problem in one of the cleared areas of the Bronx. The areas directly to the north of Manhattan have been cleared but someone is having a bit of fun with some nearby "occult" experts by creating a number of rumors about various paranormal phenomena, all of which happen to center on Marble Hill, Riverdale and Kingsbridge, the liberated and cleared areas." It was Robert who did the talking.

"Pagan spirit summoning in Ewen and Seton Parks, hauntings in several old homes, Satanic orgies in Van Cortlandt Park." The Brujah shook his head. "This has a number of far too curious individuals wandering around areas where the wrong rock being kicked over could be a problem for certain Covenant and Domain efforts. So we need you two to do your own investigation, see if you can find out who is giving this information to these groups and a hopefully come up with a way of discouraging further investigations."

Jeremy was somewhat surprised, but then brightened up and pulled out a notepad to jot down some notes, especially the types of occult happenings that supposedly took place, and the area. "Do we have a timeline on when those rumours first appeared?"

"They began about two weeks ago, as best we can tell. At least that is the case for the one we have been able to trace back with certainty because it was sent forward via a strange e-mail chain from a dummy account to student clubs and organizations focusing on the paranormal. For the other rumors, well those are word of mouth rumors. The more backstories you two can find the more we can search for common points or figures." It was Lee who provided that information.

Jeremy nodded and wrote something down. He gave Garret an encouraging smile and waited if he had some questions, noting
"We will probably not get done much with what is left of tonight if we tried to investigate at the scene, so what do you say we sit down and Plan our next steps?"

"Yeah, I think that's the next step. Do any of you have a copy of this email, I know it's a dummy account but it might help to know exactly where they sent it to? " He asks as an afterthought.

Lee reached into her purse and pulled out two pieces of paper stapled together and passed them over.

It was forwarded emails. From people who did not trim when they replied or forwarded.

Mostly there were comments on the original message, one or two words that usually went 'bullshit' or 'knew it'.

Finally there was the original message.

"There is a haunted house southeast of Manhattan College in Riverdale. It was the site of a murder/suicide, a rich upper class girl fell in love with a poor boy of whom her parents did not approve. The girl's parents arranged a marriage to a handsome young heir from an old stock New England family and the poor boy decided to prove himself, he asked for one year to show that he was smart enough to provide for the girl and her family shockingly agreed. The boy went to work as a gofer/errand runner for a law firm and after six months of work he so impressed his bosses that they agreed to pay for his education as a lawyer. When he told the girl's father, the father agreed that they could marry when the young man passed the bar. The Heir did not take kindly to that and challenged the poor boy to a duel, to take place at midnight at this house, and killed the poor boy. The girl, not wanting to live without her love, killed herself in her upstairs bedroom minutes later.

The whole mess was kept out of the papers by the family's influence and swept under the rug. But that was not the end of it, the restless spirits of the lovers now walk the house, trying in vain to reach in other and enjoy in death the pleasures they were deigned in life."
