Cody's POV

"Thirteen!" I call out as I make my way up the stairs. I get no reply. "Thirteen!" I yell out again.

I sprint the rest of the way up the stairs as a feeling of dread seeps in. I push open the door to the room she was using. Her dress is laid out neatly across the bed, her heels on the floor in the corner, and the little jewelry she was using placed neatly on the dresser. But no Thirteen.

It's then I notice that the window is open. I walk over and stick my head out, looking down into the darkness of night below.

Where the hell is she?

I make my way out the room and back down the stairs. "Have any of you seen Thirteen?" I question as I enter the main hall.

"No." Chase replies. "Why, is something wrong?"

"I'm not sure yet." I pull my phone from my pocket and dial her number, the familiar robotic voice answers telling me to leave a message. I hang up and redial.

"What?!" Her voice sounds through the phone, her tone hostile and venomous, as if she was expecting someone else to call.

"Thirteen?" I question, just to be sure it is in fact her, though I'd know her voice anywhere.

"Cody?" Her voice gets quieter, I hear her let out a string of curses under breath. "I got to go." She says simply.

"Wait. Where are you?" I ask, making my way to the front of the house as several black SUVs pull up and agents get out.

"Nowhere." She responds in a clipped tone. "Look, something came up, alright."

"No, not alright. Where are you?" I hear someone call her in the background.

"Give me a sec." She says to me. "I swear if you try to rush me one more time my dagger is going to be protruding from your skull!" She yells to whoever was calling her, her voice is muffled as if she tried to cover the mouth piece. It's silent on her end.

"Sorry." She says simply. "Cody, I'm busy right now, I'll...I'll call you later ok?"

"What?" I question, trying to figure out what the hell is going on. "You haven't answered my question, where are you?" I ask again. It's silent on her end for a few agonizing seconds before she finally responds, her voice barely above a whisper.

"I got lost."

The line goes dead.

Thirteen's POV

I stare at the blank screen on my phone, wishing Cody would call back, but it doesn't happen. I feel a hand on my shoulder.

"We need to get going." He tells me simply, and I nod silently. I grab his hand on my shoulder and twist it back, satisfied with his yelp of pain.

"Don't ever touch me." I say simply and walk past him, getting into the passenger side. He gets into the driver's seat.

"Why? You let Cody touch you." He spits out Cody's name like it's poison.

I smile internally but don't

to his chair, trying to control his anger.

"I thought it was pretty clear why." I reply nonchalantly with a shrug, trying to piss him off even more. "Go ahead and inform Delta 2 for me." I turn and begin to exit, but his voice stops me in my tracks.

"I'm afraid I can't do that."

"You can't talk to Delta 2?" I question, my voice coming out slightly harsher than intended...but only slightly.

"They're not here."

"Then call them." I reply, pushing open the door. I stop in the door way as five words slip out his mouth. My blood boils and I feel anger rush through my veins. I turn back around to face him.

"What did you say?" I ask, just trying to confirm I heard him right, and trying to decide if he wants me to kill him.

He smiles back at me, in a smug kind of way, knowing exactly what position he's just put me in.

"I sent them after Garrett." He repeats slowly, purely for his own benefit.

"That's a death sentence!" I hiss loudly.

"Not for all of them." He shrugs and puts his behind his head as if his office chair is the most relaxing thing in the world. "One or two of them might live." I clench my fist, digging my nails into my palms hard enough to draw blood.

"Where did you send them?" I question finally after a long silence. My tone one of anger but at the same time I sound defeated...probably because I am.

I see his face brighten slightly and he looks even more smug than before. I resist the over powering urge to throw a knife in his eye.

He holds out the paper I passed him along with a mission folder out to me. I snatch it out of his hands harshly.

"I guess this means your resignation will have to wait." He says smugly. I give him my signature glare.

"I guess so."
