A No Good Very Bad Week

Who: Anthony and Doppelganger!Cesar
What: D!Cesar has summoned Tony to come help him "move something" in a heavy box. Nothing suspicious here at all.
Where: Some grimy abandoned store on the Southern edge of town. Still not suspicious.
When: A couple/few days after the real L is rescued from a closet.
Warnings: Violence, demons, language, business as usual. Doppelgangers are a mess.

It'd been a crap week so far; Drunk, left in a ball pit, and a particularly stubborn clinging hangover had left him feeling slightly off and irritable as it was. The fight with Nathan, doppelgangers all over the network causing a ruckus. Lazarus' doppelganger was a month's worth of trouble all on his own. Honestly, Tony needed a break. Problem was Tony didn't know how to take a break. If someone asked him for help, he'd probably try and do it. That has never backfired on him before or anything cough cough dog woman cough mafia.

So when Cesar contacted him it was with a small amount of reluctance he agreed to lend a hand. He'd slipped up and let Cesar see how strong he was a few days prior, so of course now he'd been asked to carry something. Ugh, at least with Shou's help Tony had gotten better at controlling his strength so he wasn't just breaking things willy-nilly. This was a simple matter and should be over with quickly enough. Then he could go home and back to bed for a while.

As predicted it took him close to a full hour to reach the destination. Way out of the way for someone to be storing things, but whatever, Tony didn't care to ask. From the look of it it had been a hardware store at one time, but now it was just a long empty building with boarded up windows and "No Tresspassing" signs all over it. And a healthy colony of cobwebs to boot, just the thing to set the mood. Just what did Cesar want in this place, anyway?

Ah well, hopefully they could just get it over with quickly.

Cesar's not a runner, but he probably sets a few new records for the 'quick escape towards an exit with a raging half-demon charging after him' category.

His car is parked out back, around a slight corner and half hidden by the back lot's overgrown weeds. Now he's fumbling for his keys post-haste, snatching the door open and trying two or three times to fit the key in the ignition. Nothing's fast enough, everything's going as slow as watching honey drip...

Why did he lock the door? The car is sleek. All rounded edges, perfect red paint, cut from the same cloth that the sports cars of dreams are made of. He's prized this car since the day he got it, even going through all the trouble of driving it from his original college town.

Then Tony throws the mangled spear through the back window, slicing right through the passenger's seat and sticking through the dashboard beyond. Cesar can only gape in open-mouthed horror, before he's turning the engine on so hard the key almost snaps, yanking the car into gear.

Tony is between him and the small lot's nearest road. Cesar pulls around the car in a tight arc, facing both of them.

He floors the gas.

The car does an (extremely) hasty turn onto the street, and then roars onward and out of sight. The doppelganger can't quite believe what he just saw either, but he'll decide later that killing someone would've brought all hell down onto the life of one Cesar Sanches-Ortiz, and that he'd only ever meant to scare the hell out of the kid in the first place. Mission totally as planned?

Totally as planned.

The abandoned store will have a few clues. There's a dropped crucifix near where Tony had originally been knocked over, along with the paper sign Cesar had waved. The sign has writing on the back in pencil, full of Christian bible quotes and a carefully sounded-out exorcism.
