So sorry! I meant to update so much sooner but ended up getting sick and being forced to make up a bunch of work for school.

And shout out to @littlebean88 for the cool cover!


Thirteen's POV

"Thirteen?!" I see a hand waving in front of my face. "Hello! Earth to Thirteen!" I catch Jason's hand before it waves in my face again.

"You totally spaced out." He says, yanking his hand out of my grasp in the process.

"I'm fine." I mutter dejectedly as I take a sip of my tea. Chase walks into the kitchen and looks at me.

"Did you get any sleep last night?" He questions.

I simply shake my head in response. After that phone call I had a hard time focusing on anything, much less sleep.

I was on my guard all last night, jumping at the slightest sound. I've neglected to inform Chase that I nearly killed him last night when he got up to use the restroom.

Just like I've neglected to tell any of them about their personal files being stolen from the agency...though Devin already knows that anyway.

I move my food around on my plate as a sleepy Zack makes his entrance.

"How are you all up this early?" He questions as he stretches.

"It's eight o'clock Zack." I mutter, the familiar cold and blank expression making its way back on to my face.

"Exactly, too early." He stresses, taking a seat next to me in the process. "Nothing important ever happened before eleven-thirty in the morning, therefore I shouldn't have to get up before then."

"I'm fairly certain your birth certificate says you were born at ten-thirty in the morning." I pause as I take another sip "Huh, I guess you're right, nothing important did happen."

"Very funny." He mutters dryly as he glares at me. He nudges me when he notices I've zoned out again. "You ok."

I look up at him, meeting his eyes. "Yeah I'm fine." I say simply, I feel Devin and Chase's stare boring into the side of my head.

I clear my throat. "Where's Cody?" I ask. My voice sounding loud considering everyone else has gone silent.

"He's in his room." Devin responds after a moment of silence.

"Great, thanks." It's about time I retrieved something that belongs to me.

I stand from my seat and place my plate in the sink after scraping off the leftover food into the trash can.

"What's up with her?" I hear Chase ask when they think I'm out of ear shot.

"Why do you look at me when you ask that question?" I hear Zack's accusing tone.

"Why do you assume I'm looking at you?" Chase counters.

"Because your eyes are burning a damn hole in my head."

"We don't trust you." Devin chimes in.

"What?" Zack questions.

"We. Don't. Freaking. Trust. You." Jason adds. "Would you like me to spell it out for you?"

"Yes please do." Zack grits out sarcastically.

"Do you want another bullet hole?" Jason asks in warning

"Oh please, as if you can actually aim properly."

I roll my eyes and continue walking, tuning them out. Though its more than likely I'll be hearing a gun shot in a few minutes anyway.

I push open the door to Cody's room not bothering to knock. I hear the shower going in the adjoining bathroom, so I make my way over to his night stand and begin to go through his things.

If he can snoop through my stuff, I can go through his...but the only thing I'll be

er. "Thirteen!"

"What's going on out here?" I turn my head to see Chase walk out, looking between me and Cody, who's currently tied to the tree. His eyes land on the container of lighter fluid in my hand and they widen.

"What are you doing?!" He shouts incredulously, as if he's actually having a hard time believing that I would do something like this. I shrug innocently and dunk a third container on Cody.

"He stole something from me and I want it back." I said simply.

"What are you five?" Cody questions mockingly.

I light a match and hold it up in front of his face in response.

He shuts up.

"You know you're doing it wrong, right?" I turn and look at Jason and Devin standing slightly behind Chase. Zack stands at the window looking horrified but, surprisingly bullet-hole-less. I point at him jokingly and mouth 'you're next'.

"What do you mean I'm doing it wrong?" I question Jason, "I do know how to burn someone alive."

"You're supposed to hang him upside down, that way he actually burns alive." He replies.

"Yeah if you leave him the way he is now, he'll die of smoke inhalation before he'll actually burns." Devin adds.

"You'd basically be burning an already dead body." Chase finishes.

I try my best not laugh at the look of utter disbelief Cody's currently shooting at them, since they all just basically helped give me tips on how to kill him.

They're so supportive of me...either that or they've finally realized that there's no changing my mind.

"I may not even like the guy very much, " I look over a Zack through the now open window. "But I still don't think you should be killing anyone at my house."

"Thank you Zack-"

"Go to the park down the street and do it." Zack finishes, interrupting Cody's thanks.

I smile widely as I turn back to Cody and shrug innocently. He narrows his eyes at me.

"Don't you dare." He growls as I light another match.

"Why not? You haven't told me what I want to hear, and..." I trail off and lean forward letting my lips brush against his ear. "They've given me permission."

Remember what I said about karma?

Two more updates tomorrow and possibly another tonight.
