Requiem started to say something to Mary when he heard Sivik's question, "Not sure, I'm just tagging along on this one, first hunts can be tough. My first one here I almost got murdered by a changeling. And then my first hunt in my home town was worse... So I'm really determined for yours to go better," He said turning back to Mary as he said it.
Reaching into his coat pocket Requiem pulled out a thick black velvet choker with a decorative added on golden chain layer that connected to a pearl heart at the center surrounded in a frame of gold, "I also came to deliver you this new collar, lighter weight, more comfortable, looks natural. What do you think?"
Mary looked at it curiously, but then shook her head, "Thanks! But I'll pass, I like my clunky collar," She said with an honest, cheery grin.
"Okay, I don't know why I asked, you're getting this one, or at least a different one. It's ridiculous, you're the only person I've given a collar to who just exploited the fact that the clunky one is easier to look at. I saw your blueprints, mapping out the collars design to understand how to remove it and to be completely honest... I was a little proud." Requiem said, gently pulling her over to his side, putting the new collar on her first before tinkering with four separate things, one on her collar, another on his phone, one from a device, and then the last step seemed a bit tough to tell what he did, but was probably a finger print scan.
Mary moved forward to proceed with the hunt, but Requiem pulled her back one more time, this time holding out the mask he gave to her, "Don't defy me on this one. You can be snarky, you can do whatever you'd like at home, I value the sacrifice you were forced to go along with, but I need you to wear a mask. Preferably every time you're out in public, but we can start off in hunts."
Mary looked at Sivik first with a look of clear discomfort and then back at Requiem, "Would you really shock me if I refused?"
Requiem waved his hand fast, "Never, not for something like that, but I really need you to do this for me."
Mary grimaced for a long moment before putting on the gas mask and then the wide framed goggles, "Activate," She said reluctantly, a purple glow emitting from the gas masks sides. The eye mask on the other hand activated a flurry of purple dots before focusing with five dots on either side of peripherals with an arachnid view. "Oh wow, lots of settings on this."
"Yeah, thought you could test it out," Requiem said, finally leaving his daughters side to join Kelly's. Walking over to his friend, he hoped he had calmed down since the "Taylor Swift innocent." "So I was thinking maybe you could take the lead, since you are her mentor. Then I can help rain in Sivik or Alik if they bother you to minimize things. And afterwards, maybe I could take you out for drinks as an apology for how wild today has gotten?" He said, with an uneasy hopeful tone. He already felt bad enough for how things had gone, especially when he knew Kelly was planning to just go on a werewolf hunt not driving around through the city.
