Thirteen's POV

"Siblings?" He asks, as we sit by the pond. Him keeping his distance since I kicked him...or rather, kneed him.

I shake my head. "None." I lie easily. But then again that is kinda the truth too, so...

"Really? Oh man how I wish I didn't have any siblings."

"You have siblings?" I ask, playing dumb.

"One. A little brother. Though he seems to forget he's younger." He grumbles.

"Are you sure it's not cause you act younger." I tease him lightly. He playfully glares at me. He gets a faraway look in his eyes.

"No, he's just...an idiot."

"I'm pretty sure all siblings say that about each other." He rolls his eyes.

"Yeah well if you had any siblings you'd understand."

"I have a few cousins." I reply. "They're good enough." He laughs.

"Is that the family you're out here visiting?"

"Yeah."

"How long are you going to be out here?"

I shrug. "Few weeks, possibly a couple months." He nods.

A ringtone splits through the silence. I pull my phone from my back pocket. A familiar number flashes across the screen.

I told them to leave me alone.

"Speak of the devil." I mutter.

"Your cousin?"

"Yeah." I lie. "I'm so sorry but I have to take this."

He waves me off, "No it's fine." I stand and walk a short distance away so he can't hear as much of the conversation. I answer the call.

"I told you not to-" I'm cut off.

"Are we allowed to kill civilians?"

"What?"

"Are we allowed to-"

"I heard what you said, I'm just having a hard time believing that those words actually came out of your mouth." I hiss into the phone.

"Is that a yes?"

"What do you think Devin?"

"Sounds like a yes to me. Ok got to go, I got to find a bag to put the body in, bye!" He chirps.

"Devin wait-" The call is disconnected. I run a hand through my hair.

"Everything alright?" Zack asks, "You seem distressed." I turn to face him.

"Distressed doesn't even begin to cover it." I mutter to myself. "I'm so sorry but I have to go. Do you mind giving me a ride back to the café? My ride's there."

"Yeah sure let's go." He says quietly. We head back to his car, him leading the way. We make it to the café in ten minutes.

"Thanks." I say to him as I exit the car.

"No problem." I stand right outside the passenger side door, staring at him.

"What?" He questions.

"My book."

A sly smile spreads across his lips. "And I'd give that back because..." he trails off.

I lean towards him "Because a knee to your family jewels is not the worst I can do." He glares back at me before pulling the book from the side compartment and handing it to me.

"See you soon?" He asks.

I pretend to ponder the question. "Possibly." I finally answer before turning on my heel and walking away. As soon as he drives off out of sight I run towards Cody's house. Luckily he doesn't live that far away. I just couldn't have Zack knowing that. I enter the house and am immediately assaulted by high pitched screeches.

idea pops into my head.

"I don't like that." he states. I frown in confusion.

"Don't like what?"

"That look in your eyes."

"Well then you'll like the plan even less." He groans out loud. I turn to leave. "Be ready to go in five minutes."

"You let me hit you didn't you?" He asks softly. I stop in the door way, I say nothing in reply.

"Why?" He questions.

"You needed to get your anger on someone before you hurt anyone else." I reply quietly. "So figured maybe you'd feel better getting your anger out on the one person you blamed for what happened. You have to know that wasn't my fault. I did everything I could to try to save them." He says nothing.

"Be ready to leave, and then I'll inform on what I plan to do. You need to remember that I lost someone that day too." I mutter quietly. I turn and exit the room

Flashback

"We have to stop the train. Go to the other cart, there's a lever there that should separate the carts from each other so that this one slows down." He says.

"What are you going to do?" I question.

"I'm going to get all the people out of this cart and onto the next."

"Don't do anything stupid."

"When have I ever?" I give him a look, "Don't answer that." he adds in. He moves all the people to my cart.

"There's no lever!" I yell out to him. I turn just in time to see him close and lock the cabin door.

"What are you doing!" I shout as I run up to the door trying to get it to open.

"We were all never going to make it back, you had to know that Thirteen."

"No." I whisper.

"Good-bye." He says quietly. He pulls a lever in his cart that causes it to disconnect. It begins to speed away, as ours slows down. I bang on the door, trying to force it open.

Our cart slowly comes to a stop, just as an explosion shakes the subway tunnels. I stare ahead at the spreading fire.

"No." I whisper, I blink back the tears in my eyes that threaten to spill over. "No."
