Thirteen's POV

I braid my hair as I descend the stairs, folder tucked under my arm, and make my way towards the living room.

I walk by the boys who are all crowded in the kitchen, yelling at Devin to quit trying to cook.

I stand in the hallway watching for a while before Devin notices me. He smiles and waves before elbowing Cody and whispering something to him with a devious look on his. Cody swings at him and Devin cracks up. Cody's eyes meet mine.

Ok then.

I gesture with my hand for him to follow, as well as the rest of them. I make my way to the spare dining room. I vaguely remember Devin telling me they only used this one for large crowds of people. They all enter one after the other. Devin still with his smug and devious smile on his face.

I pull a picture out of the folder I brought and place it in the middle of the table.

"Yes, we came to Cody's because it's safer, no that was not the only reason." I start as I point to the picture.

"Oh you're finally going to share information with us?" Jason mutters, my glare turns icy, and I continue on as if I didn't hear him.

"How do you get at someone if not physically?" I ask.

"Emotionally." Chase answers.

"Exactly." My attention turns to the picture on the table, "This is Zack Martin, Tony's eldest son. He attends college in this area"

"I didn't know he had any kids." Cody says as he reaches over and takes the picture in his hands.

"He has two sons." I reply. "And in some sick way he actually cares about them. Probably because of his wife."

"What happened to his wife?" Devin asks.

I let out a sigh. "She was a good woman, nothing like Tony. But when the Split happened, she had to make a choice. Stand with her husband and children, or stand with the agency."

"She went with Tony." Cody grumbled in annoyance, already convinced of this.

"No actually." His bewildered gaze meets my eyes. "She stood with the agency, she stood against him." They all stare at me in surprise.

"Not many people would do that." Jason says.

"Like I said, she was a good woman."

"How did she die?" Chase questions.

"She died in the fire."

"I thought you lit it after all the good guys were out." Cody says.

"I did, she ran back in."

"Why?"

"Cause there was one person left in the building, and she ran in and saved their life, but she died in the hospital week later."

"Who did she go back in to save?"

"The fire had to be started from the outside in. Someone had to make sure the fire was spread."

"She went back in to save you." Cody whispers.

"It was supposed to be a one way trip. Obviously that didn't happen."

Everyone stares at me, I clear my throat and grab some papers from the folder.

"Tony took his sons with him during the Split, and no one ever heard from them again. But I did some digging and I found Zack. Every year Tony throws a party for his sons at his house, that's the only time he's ever home. We need to get invited to that party."

"So we get close to this Zac

agency."

"I'm not following." he states. I run a hand through my now unbraided hair.

"As soon as I was 'old enough' my father tossed me into the agency because he didn't want to raise me. My mother died in a car accident when I was little, and God forbid my Aunts or Uncles would take care of me. My brother and sister got the same cold shoulder from my father as I did. We were never raised by him, and we never saw each other until we were in our teens." I pause quietly as I stare at the helmet in my hands. "There was no such thing as family, or love to us. It was just the next mission."

He stares at me quietly, his eyes soft. "We were just agents, and that's all I still am." I finish quietly.

He takes a few hesitant steps towards me and gentle takes the helmet from my hands, hooking it back up to the bike.

"Let's go inside." he says, his voice barely above a whisper. His eyes wary, as if afraid I'll punch him or blow up at him but I don't do anything except stare back at him. I make no move to move.

"We don't have to go back to dinner. We can just go up to my room and watch movies or something." He says. I raise an eye brow.

"Fine." I finally answer. A look of relief covers his face.

We walk back into the house and pass by the dining room heading up the stairs. He closes the door behind him.

"What do you want to watch?" He asks softly.

"I don't need your pity for me Cody." I snap.

He just rolls his eyes. "So you've said." he gestures for me answer his question.

I just shrug. "I don't know. I've never really seen many movies." I mutter, feeling slightly defeated.

"Alright. I'll pick." he replies, grabbing a random movie off the self beneath his TV and popping it into the disk tray.

He takes a seat on one end of the couch and me on the other.

I watch the movie for maybe the first forty-five minutes before I feel myself slowly starting to drift off.
