Thirteen's POV

For once I don't know what to do. It's been four years since I've seen him. Four years of avoiding him at all costs. Somehow I knew I was going to see him again, I just wish I was more prepared. I feel numb, as if everything around me just stopped, as if it's not going on. I knew I would see him again but there was one thing I wished for every time I thought about it...that I would be alone.

This is was why I wanted to work alone, this was why I was a solo agent. I pull two knives from my boots and grip the handles tightly. I vaguely hear Cody calling my name, asking me what's wrong.

"Thirteen." He waves his hand in front of my face. "What is it?" He questions.

"You get out of here, understand?" I tell him.


"No matter what happens you get Hayden and yourself out." I hold the knives tighter. "If I'm not with you when you get out, leave without me."

"Not a chance." He replies.

"It's not open for negotiation Cody."

"Who is it if not Zack?" Hayden questions, though he hasn't tried arguing with me yet so that's good.

"Tony?" Cody suggests.


"Then who-"

"Seventy-seven." I cut him off, avoiding his gaze. He seems shocked as he says nothing and continues to bore his stare into the side of my head.

"You told me he was dead." He says finally.

"He's dead to me." I pause. "And I never said he was dead, I simply said that he was gone." I turn and move to step out into his line of sight.

"Are you crazy?" Hayden says as he grabs hold of my shoulder pulling me back. "He'll kill you."

"No he won't..." I pause. "Well maybe." Hayden give me a suspicious look.

"What are you going to do?"

"Piss him off." I answer. I'm slammed against the wall.

"Then he'll definitely kill you!" I shove him off me and Cody has to grab him to keep him from falling over.

"It's the only way you two can get out without him noticing you. Yeah he fights better when he's pissed but he also doesn't notice anything else around him except the person who pissed him off." I turn the corner swiftly, I barely feel Cody's fingers on my arm as he tries to grab me and pull me back.

His back is to me as I approach, until he turns, a smirk on his face. I stop in my tracks.

"Been a long time." He turns around fully to face me. He eyes the knives in my hands. "Now that's no way to great an old friend."

I don't say anything in reply, for fear of slipping up and saying something I shouldn't. He raises an eyebrow at me.

"What? Got nothing to say? No, oh it's nice to see you again, or oh how I missed you."

"One of the only things my father ever taught me was, if I've got nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all." I reply.

"Well you've certainly changed." He says giving me a once over. I say nothing. "You know you're not going to kill me."

"And you're not going to kill me." I reply. "But you're not stopping me from leaving."

"Funny how that works." He says with a sly smile. "Cause if I'm not mistaken you weren't brought in here alone." Dread sets in almost immediately. He starts to stalk towards me. "So where are your little friends?"

"Far away from you." I growl out. He smirks.

"I highly doubt that." He pulls a gun from his holster. "Though it'll be fun to kill them in front of you while you can do nothing about it. Brings back memories doesn't it?"

I keep my anger hidden from him, there's no way I'm going to let him know just how much his words affect me.

"Huh." I say as I pretend to

so ever...that's never a good sign.

I run up to one of the cars parked in the parking lot, luckily it's open.

"Hurry up!" I hiss at Cody, he just gives me a look that clearly asks, 'why don't we switch places so I can yell at you', not happening. I look behind him only to see Seventy-seven coming up, quick as he can considering the knife I put in his leg.

"Shit." I mutter. I start running towards them.

"Wow, you actually came to help, what a surprise." Cody says.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah poke fun at me later. Seriously move." Cody must notice the tone of my voice and where my eyes are focused because he looks over his shoulder.

"Oh, crap."

"My thoughts exactly...just a little more PG-13." I retort, helping him move Hayden faster to the car.

We put Hayden in the back seat and I move to the driver's seat only to be stopped by Cody as he shoves me aside and begins to hot-wire the car. I don't protest as I hop into the passenger side seat. I look over at the rapidly approaching, and pissed, Seventy-seven.

"Cody you might want to hurry it up." I say.

"Whatever, you're not helping." He continues mashing the different colored wires together.

"Seriously, Cody." I say as I make eye contact with Seventy-seven, he raises the gun at his side towards me. "Cody." I say in warning.

"Got it." He says as the engine starts and he steps on the gas just as Seventy-seven fires the gun, the bullet shattering the passenger side window. I let out a breath of relief as I watch his figure grow smaller in the distance.

I turn to Cody, still not making eye contact. "You know how to hot-wire a car?" He rolls his eyes.

"Go ahead make fun of me, call me a criminal or something." He retorts. I smile slightly and hold my hands up in mock surrender.

"Not judging...yet." I reply.

"Did you plan on magically starting the car? In my own defense how else would we have gotten out of there?"

"With the keys." I spin a set of keys around on my finger, Cody gives me a deadpan look and that's all it takes to send me and Hayden over the edge. And I got to tell ya...

I've never laughed so hard in my life.

I said I'd try my best to get two updates in so here's one.

If I can manage to get the second update in it'll be tomorrow.
