So sorry for the late update, I was out of town till late yesterday and completely forgot to mention it. I will be out of town again next week as well so I will be updating again this week on Saturday or really early Sunday.

Thanks for reading!

Thirteen's POV

I throw the final knife into the hood of the fourth SUV and duck back into the car.

"Step on it." I order Jason, seriously I have no desire to be anywhere near these cars when they go up in smoke.

He obeys without complaint and speeds the car up even faster. The deafening sound of an explosion sounds loud and clear behind us.

"There's still one more." Cody says.

"Thank you captain obvious."

Cody opens his mouth to retort, but gets cut off as the remaining SUV rams into the side of our vehicle yet again. Lovely. I feel myself fall backwards into the back seat as the car begins to spin out of control.

"JASON!" I yell out. He better get this car under control quick.

"I'm TRYING!" he shouts back at me.

"TRY HARDER!" Cody pipes up.

The car is rammed into yet again effectively stopping us from spinning and giving Jason back control of the car. Immediately he swerves away and back down the road. I turn in my seat and look out the rear window. Just great it's him.

The sound of shattering glass followed closely by gunshots pierce the silence as the rear window shatters.

"Duck!" Chase yells out us as bullets soar over our heads.

"Man you really pissed him off." Devin mutters

"Not helping." I grumble.

"Maybe it would help if we knew what you did." Cody growls.

"Nope that won't help either." Cody lets out a groan of frustration from the front seat.

"Well then what can you tell us? Cause so far guess what we know? Nothing! Absolutely nothing!"

"And that bothers you?" he makes a noise in the back of his throat that sounds like a cross between a growl and a choke. I'm beginning to believe that he's getting more pissed off than the guy behind us.

I let out a sigh "His name is Victor." All eyes except Jason's turn towards me, "He use to be a friend, and one day things went bad...really bad. That's all I wish to say on the matter."

"That still answers none of our questions." Cody points out.

"Actually it answers all of them." I respond just before a loud popping noise similar to an explosion fills the car followed closely by the screeching of metal.

"What the hell is that?" Devin asks.

"The sound of a popped tire." Chase replies. A second sound exactly like the first sounds again and the car suddenly stops.

"Jason." I growl lowly.

"It's not me."

"Crap." I mutter before climbing over Chase and opening the car door. I turn to everyone, "Stay in the car." I order before stepping out and onto the deserted street. He stands there in front of me leaning against his car with a smug smirk on his face.

"Trinaest, ?to kaze? da rije?iti ovo kao agenti, bez oruzja." (Thirteen, what do you say we settle this as agents, no weapons.) I stare at him before reaching down into my boots and removing my knives, never taking my eyes off him as he tosses his weapons away from him. I take the gun out of the small of my back and then I unstrap the dagger from my side. I toss them into his weapons, cause let's face it only one of us is making it out breathing.

"Nikad jedan povratak iz izazov." (Never one to back out of a challenge.) he smirks at me.

"Pogotovo kada znam da cu pobijediti." (Especially when I know I'll win.) I say confidently. He smiles sadistica

ven't I ever seen it?"

"There's this amazing thing called make up." I say sarcastically, "I couldn't move my wrist for...a couple months actually, and even now it still hurts when I move it certain ways." I finish.

"Well then I think you should sue the agency for not doing a good enough job patching you up." He says with a small smile on his face, he's obviously trying to lighten the mood.

I shake my head slightly "I, uh...never went to the agency to have it taken care of." He gives me an incredulous look "They actually don't even know I have it."


"I don't trust them." He looks at me strangely.

"Then why the hell do you work for them?"

"I trust Zero, and I work for Zero, not anyone else."

"What is wrong with you and trust?" I shrug as a response even though I have an answer...and a damn good one at that.

"I'm sorry." I glance at him only to find that he now thinks his hands are the most interesting thing in the world.

"What?" I ask.

"I'm sorry." He says again slightly louder this time. "I'm sorry for making assumptions about you and well...being down right mean. It wasn't my place."

"Yeah I'm sorry too." I mumble quietly.

"For what, other than being a complete biatch to me, I'm getting the feeling that, that's not what you're saying sorry for." A teasing smile plays across his lips.

I roll my eyes. "For coming in on your team." I say and watch a look of confusion pass across his face.

"That wasn't your choice, Zero-"

"Zero let me pick which team I was going to be working with and I said yours." I cut him off.

"Why would you pick ours if you could've picked another team that would've, bowed down to your every command?" he questions.

"Because you guys kind of reminded me of what it was like to be on a team, with people who you care about. I would watch the surveillance videos of you guys and you all seemed so close, and I don't know I just thought that if I was going to be on any team it would be a closely knit one." That's one of the two reasons.

"What do you mean we reminded you?"

"I was on a team once same as you." my voice takes on a sharper edge.

"What happened to them?"

"There are many things I will tell you, but that is not one of them." I'll tell the truth no matter what but when it comes to my old team...I will just keep lying.
