So very sorry for the super late update. Unfortunately I've been extremely busy with school projects and book reports. That being said, I'm going to try my best to get two updates in during the weekend.

Thanks for reading!

Cody's POV

She grabs me by the back of my neck and pulls me towards her. Fear immediately begins to settle in.

Oh shit, she's going to knock me unconscious.

Only, she does the last thing I ever expected her to do. She pulls me in, and places her lips softly on mine. I freeze in complete shock, as she pulls away after a few seconds, her eyes not meeting mine as she leans back against the wall again and closes her eyes.

"Distracted?" She questions, still with her eyes closed.

I let out a breath I didn't even realize I was holding. "Yeah." I mutter back quietly. Still staring.

"Good." She says, "Focus on that."

A part of me flares up, angry that the only reason she did that was to distract me, so it obviously meant nothing to her. Another part of is just shocked and well, happy that she did, even if it did mean nothing to her.

She remains pressed against the wall with her eyes closed, and it's quiet for quite some time. Until she jolts forward, her breathing heavy and her eyes wide. I stare at her curiously.

"Did you fall asleep?" I question softly. She doesn't say anything and just stares ahead. I study her cautiously, for the first time I realize just how tired she looks.

"No."

"You're lying." I state.

"So what if I am." She hisses. "It doesn't matter anyway." I just stare back at her silently. "Hayden's quieted down. They're likely bringing him back."

As soon as the sentence leaves her mouth, the door to the room swings open and several people enter, Hayden being dragged in behind them. The cell door opens and he is tossed unceremoniously to the floor. I move towards him quickly, as he groans and rolls onto his back, eyes shut.

"Your turn." One of the guys says as he points to Thirteen, who simply crosses her legs and puts her arms behind her head, leaning against the wall as if it's the most comfortable thing in the world. Her posture basically saying 'make me'. I see the guards hesitate.

One pulls a gun from his waist band and aims it at me and Hayden.

"Let me put this in simpler terms. You come with us now and they live, you fight against us in any way or if I even see you twitch wrong, I put a bullet in one of their heads. We clear?"

"Crystal." She retorts dryly.

She gets to her feet, pain stakingly slow on purpose, and holds her hands up slightly trying to make herself seem as non-threatening as possible. Of course the deadly glint in her eyes seemed to only make her look even more threatening.

She starts to exit the cell and as soon as she steps foot outside of it, she's shoved face first into the floor. I watch her clench her fists and she turns her murderous glare on the guy who shoved her. He raises an eye brow at her, a smirk on his face, practically begging her to fight back, taunting her.

"We got a problem?" He ask her as she continues to glare.

"No." She grits her teeth. "I just tripped, kinda like how you're going to just die."

His eyes darken before he delivers a punch to her face and a kick to her stomach. She groans, before spitting blood out on the floor. I cringe slightly.. She starts to get to her feet, hands balling into fists.

"Get moving." He orders as he aims the gun at me and Hayden, she glances quickly at us before turning her back on us and walking out of the room, with almost all the guards following. Two stay behind.

"I

here." I say.

Thirteen's eyebrows furrow in confusion. "Just one?" She questions.

"Yeah."

"Why would they only have one guard?"

"Maybe it's Zack?" Hayden suggests. I look around the corner again at the guy guarding the door, his back is to me.

"It's possible but I can't tell, his back is to me." I reply, trying to get a good look at him and trying to keep Hayden standing.

"Well if it's Zack you two are going first, just in case my cover's not blown...though I doubt it." Thirteen says.

"I can't see his face, he won't turn around."

"Let me look." Thirteen pushes me out of the way, nearly making both me and Hayden fall over. She stays looking for quite some time before turning back to us and pressing her back against the wall.

"It's not Zack." She says simply.

But for once I see a different glint than the usual deadly one in her eyes...and this one, is fear.

Alright, one of my awesome readers asked if I could do a list of the characters that have been mentioned so far in the book to help you guys keep track, I'm only going to do the more important characters that will mentioned later on so here you go:

Thirteen: ...I really don't think I have to say anything about her, other than the fact that she's the main character. The rest is kind of self explanatory.

Cody: One of the members of Thirteen's new team, and the guy who likes her.

Devin: Crazy team member, who can't sit still more than a minute.

Jason: Another one of the members of Thirteen's new team. He's a little more chilled back than Devin...ok a lot more.

Chase: Leader of the team (Let Thirteen take over being in charge of this mission), and oldest of them.

Hayden: Cody's older brother, former agent, and former member of one of Thirteen's previous teams.

Ninety-one: Pilot for all the agents on their outgoing missions.

Fifty-three: Agent who was against Thirteen going on the mission, (mentioned in the first chapter).

Fifty-seven: Mentioned in a video Thirteen was watching, member of her original team.

Seventy-seven: Member of Thirteen's old team, former boyfriend.

Zack: Tony's oldest son, and the person Thirteen needs to be getting close to. Also major player.

Tony: the guy they are looking for to bring into the agency for questioning, Zack's father.

I think that's all of them so far. Let me know if you think I forgot someone.

Thanks!
