The table sits in the back of the restaurant in a quiet corner. A beautiful woman stands next to the table and smiles politely as you all take your seats, even Emeline, who wasn't given a chance to argue. The surly old man stomps back and takes his seat without a word.

"Ghostbusters... This is Cajun Katie." says the tight-lipped detective. "I was just asking her some questions about a recent crime wave our city's been having. You know, murder, robbery, over-cooked chicken."

"You mean that someone is murdering and robbing over-cooked chickens?" Clarence elucidated, finger still tinging. "That would seem unproductive."

Emeline slipped into a seat, her eyes not on the speaker, or on Katie, but on the menu. If the ghost-hunting strangers were here for a business lunch, and there was a chance for a free meal, the young Cajun was definitely going to take advantage of the host's confusion. “Overcooked is fine wit' me,” she mumbled softly as her stomach rumbled, “As long as there's lot's of it.”

'Need somebody hung? We can do that. I saw some nice trees in the city park when we rode in. Hangings is fun for the whole family.'

For a change Pepper was a bit on the serious side as she took a seat. "I've had issues with a dancin' turkey before but the other stuff sounds a bit nasty. Why don't we order and get down to business? Ami here's real smart and once Clarence's hair stops smokin' I figure he'll be back on form." She didn't mind Emeline sitting with them and figured if anything she'd be fun to keep around to see what all would happen to Clarence.

'I'll have the red beans and rice -- hold the rice. And the gumbo, that's sort of like chilli, ain't it?'

Eddie's hotel roommate eyed him askance.
Then quietly sighed. Perhaps he could come up with a temporary olfactory blocking agent by bedtime.

"I'm a partial to the gumbo myself. The spicier the better," Ami said. She was smiling and gazing around the place. It hadn't changed much from the last time she'd been there. A real nice place, in her opinion.

Pepper didn't even look at the menu. "I like Pork Chop Jamalaya, good and fillin'. 'Course a bit of gator meat isn't too bad either." She had seen Clarence giving Eddie an odd look and gave the scientist a sympathetic look as she leaned over to whisper "Maybe a stop at the pharmacy for some Gas-X will help."

The detective blinked slowly and leaned forward, pointing a fork at the Ghsotbusters.

"To be clear... the food comment was a joke... Not to be taken seriously." Cajun Katie glared at him but remained silent as she mentally took down the table's orders. He shakes his head, grumbling something about the filthy end of the stick and looks at the team once more.

"Anyway... on to business. Lately, we've had a series of crimes in town. Five murders to be precise. Each vic was a suspected member of Papa Joe's crime family. Each vic was killed in a similar fashion - they were ripped apart by some person or persons of immense strength." Detective Becktrees said without batting an eyelash. It was fairly obvious he didn't care one bit about those who had died.

Clarence pondered aloud. "A relatively uncommon way to die. What leads you to believe that the murders partake of the supernatural, in particular?"

Eddie thought of a few varmits which were capable of doing such a thing, but he had never seen any of them around these parts before now. He leaned forward and quietly listened for the detective's answer to Clarence's query.

"In three of the cases, it is evident that the victim fired a gun at his assailants. No blood, other than the victim's own, was discovered at the murder scenes. No bullets were found either. The only strange piece of evidence found, and this was at the latest site, is a clump of rotted flesh that the lab is currently analyzing, and a book of matches from Cajun Katie's House of Chicken." the detective said as he sipped at his drink. Katie, who had remained quiet until now glared at the cop.

"That means little, detective. Everyone in this city has eaten here more than once." she said matter-of-factly. Detective Westtree ignored her.

"Add to these murders the fact that every mutilated body has been stolen from the morgue, and you have a weird case. Weirder still, there have been five major robberies during this time period. All were committed at night, and all happened within an hour of the murders. The thieves robbed the five largest jewelry stores in the city, taking only diamonds."

"What does this all have to do with li'l ol' me?" she asked sweetly. Westree shrugged.

"I haven't figure that out yet. But I will." he said as he tossed the evidence matchbook at Clarence.

When the matchbook flew at Clarence he reflexively raised his hand to shield his face, and the matchbook bouncing off his wrist to fall onto the table.
Clearing his throat, the scientist covered with: "Is there only one morgue from, uh, which the corpses have been taken?"

Pepper sat there looking at the detective as he went on, just as unruffled as him though she found a lot of things awfully strange. Right on the heels of Clarence's question, the cowgirl opened her big mouth. "What about security camera footage in the stores or were the owners idiots enough to not install a system? And I can see one body being stolen from a morgue but five? Really? What kind of system to you have for the morgue?" she asked bluntly.

"Sounds like you're saying bullets were fired into zombies so of course there aren't any casings left behind and maybe the bits are raising from the dead and walking out of the morgue." Pointing at the book of matches Clarence now held, and also thinking if that was actual evidence that his fingerprints were now on them, she continued blithely. "As far as the matches, as popular as the place is they could have been on each vic. Or maybe the popularity of the place is what's driving someone to discredit the establishment."

Ami listens with a calm look but inside she's wincing. Even one person dead is two too many for her sake. She doesn't like what is happening around and wants to go out and find the one responsible; be it ghost or otherwise.

The detective opened his mouth to answer, but the bouncer's sudden appearence shut him up.

"Excuse me detective, but there is a phonecall for you."

Without another word the detective and the bouncer stepped away leaving the Ghostbusters alone with Cajun Katie.

"If'n you'll excuse me, I'll put in your orders." she said with a polite bow of her head, leaving the Ghostbusters alone with their thoughts.

Pepper looked at the others, an eyebrow raised to silently ask what each of the others thought. She figured she'd spouted off enough for a few moments and would let the brains of the group make some theories. She did turn to the woman with purple hair and gave her a welcoming smile. "You gettin' any vibes from all this?"

"You gettin' any vibes from all this?"

Emeline looked up, momentarily paused in the act of stuffing complimentary saltine crackers into her mouth. The talk of murders and diamonds she'd let roll right over her, her interest piqued only when the word “zombies” was used. That now was something that she new a little about. Vibes? Was Pepper asking her if she was getting any kind of “spiritual nudge” from the table-talk?

Emeline cleared her throat, inadvertently blowing cracker crumbs onto the table top. “Ahh... no. I'm not gettin' anythin'. Zombies, though... they's usually made by someone... a hoodoo priest. A houngan, like.”

The young Cajun tucked a strand of purple hair behind her ear, her eyes falling to the crumbs on the table rather than face the Ghostbusters. She didn't care to admit that her zombie-knowledge was just a recitation of her book-learned occult studies. She, herself, had as much chance of raising the dead as she did of materializing a free chicken dinner out of thin air.

“If de dead is walkin', it's cause someone wit' some ser'ous juju is makin' 'em do it.”

"I should like to example any forensic evidence they have," Clarance said. "Of the undead."
"I might remark that a couple of years ago I would have repudiated any suggestion of zombies walking the streets of the city... but my researches-- and our recent experiences--" he glanced at the other veteran Ghostbusters. "Leave me open to the possibility. Still, I feel the need to maintain a certain healthy skepticism. They may be zombies, yes, but let me state that all may not be as it appears."
