Thirteen's POV

"Well?" I question when Jackson remains quiet. He holds up a finger, keeping me from interrupting him as he knocked back his drink.

"Patience is key." He says as he signals the bartender for another drink.

"My patience is running thin." Sam speaks up from his seat at the bar. Jackson turns and glares at him but suddenly thinks better of it when he sees Sam's deadly look.

"Right, well." Jackson clears his throat. "The guys you encountered are mercenaries."

"Tell me something I don't know."

Jackson shoots Sam a glare at his interruption. Sam doesn't even bat and eye at him and just continues with his challenging stare.

"The mercenaries, " Jackson shoots another glare at Sam. "Can be hired by anyone provided you have the money to hire them. They don't care which side of the law they're operating on. They could hired as security guards for a bank or soldiers to overthrow a government. They're extremely dangerous and don't care what they're doing so long as they're getting paid."

"Do you know who's in charge of these mercenaries?" I ask him and he shakes his head.

"I've been trying to find that out myself with no luck. Some people say it's a girl, so people say it's a guy. I've heard names, but none of them have gotten me anywhere. All false leads."

"I don't suppose you'd tell me if you ever come across the right name?"

Jackson smiled into his drink. "I might…for a price."

"You're unbelievable." I mutter and his smile widens. "What do you want now?"

"Well, since my regular price is much too high for you, I guess I could settle for a favor of my choosing."

"And this favor would be?"

Jackson slides closer to me. "Anything I want."

"Tempting." I mutter sarcastically. "I'd rather just pay your regular price."

Jackson scoffs. "You don't have that kind of money."

Lily turn her back to hide her smile, Sam's lips twitch, and I can hear Devin, Chase, and Zack laughing through the earpiece. I keep my face blank and avoid showing any emotion, but I'm smiling internally.

"Oh yeah? Try me."

Jackson rolls his eyes and takes a pen from his pocket and a napkin from the bar counter. He scribbles something on the napkin and passes it over to me with a smug smile on his face. My face is unreadable as I glance at the napkin.

"So? Ready to give me my favor?" Jackson questions smugly. I pass the napkin to Sam and he smiles slightly.

Lily snatches the napkin from him and begins to cackle loudly. "Oh man, this is chump change to you." She tells me and I let a smile spread across my face and Jackson just looks confused.

"That, " I wave my hand at the napkin still in Lily's hand. "is completely doable. Just give me your account numbers."

"I'm sorry, did you read the number I wrote?" Jackson questions, disbelief written across his face.

"I did." I tell me. "And quite frankly I was excepting a higher number."

"There's no possible way you have that kind of money."

"We're really not here to talk about how much money I do or don't have. So please, continue on with what you've found."

"That's pretty much it." Jackson says. "I haven't been able to find out more than that and I have a vested interest. I've hired my own guy

res though, have been censored out.

I skim through the article quickly while Lily and Jackson have now taken to arguing.

"Who taught you to treat a girl like that?"

"Oh please, that little princess is a wolf in sheep's clothing. You should have seen how she treats other people, all I did was show the world the kind of person she is."

"That's not at all what you did. You tricked her and shamed her in the worst ways possible!"

"Oh there are worse ways than that, believe me. I could have done a lot worse."

"You made her out to look like a prostitute!"

"Hey, all I did was tell her I'd meet her in the hotel room and then I might have stolen her clothes…and possible got a very well known gang boss to go into the hotel room on the assumption that there was a prostitute waiting for him in there…and the room may or may not have been wired for sound and video that may or may not have been linked up to a couple news vans…and I may have messed with the lights a little beforehand so that she wouldn't notice the difference between me and him at first glance. I also may have doctored up some other photos after the fact but that's besides the point."

Lily let's out a frustrated scream and looks like she wants to strangle Jackson.

"Just look at the bright side." Jackson says.

"What bright side?"

"That gang boss disappeared a couple hours after the videos and pictures were released. How much you want to bet he's dead?"

"How is that a bright side?!"

"I got rid of a very well know gang boss for world by putting him in an oh so compromising position. Plus, I ended up with a lot of money out of this."

Lily looks desperately like she wants to shoot him. Her hand twitches at her side and her gaze occasionally goes to her purse. Jackson doesn't notice.

"Also, I did also get to see all of the 'hottest' girl's assets. So that was a bonus. She may be a complete bitch but man she's got a killer body."

Lily let's out a strangled sound. Jackson gives her a raised eyebrow.

"You are an animal." Lily grounds out between clenched teeth.

Jackson flashes her a smile.

"Tell me something I don't know."
