Tetsuo had no idea what had happened until he got the call to go to the club. He knew something was up when they called and told him to come asap (naturally he thought it best to follow the usual vamp dress code and wore his modified verion). But in no way was he prepared for any of this. The whole club wiped out by hunters? And on top of it all they gave him his own apprentice. He felt it was way too soon for that even or maybe especially in this situation but tried not to let it shine through. Ito would easily see right through him, but that wasn't important. He had probably made his decision knowing this. But his new partner didn't have to find out the moment they met.
After Ito's speech he started to leave the club. Tetsuo followed him "Right. It's not like vampires really need my medical skills anyways.". He turned to Steres quickly and said in a low voice "Hey there. I'm Tetsuo Otsuka. Let's just leave it at that until later, okay".
Then he tunred back, strolling behind Ito with his hand in his pockets. "You said the hunters are responsible, Ito-sensei. That's new. How many of them did all this?"
He looked around the horrible scene.
Mangled corpses and bodyparts lying around, wounded people scattered all over screaming in agony and the whole place covered in blood. At least that part was somewhat familiar and Testsuo coudln't prevent a smile, thinking about it.
In any case, the place couldn't possibly have looked worse if a bomb had explosed there. That the hunters could inflict so much damage on them, was a scary thought. Their weapons were powerful...sure, but until now they were simply hunted by vampires and meant no big threat. Not anymore, though.
