30. Keep her away from me

Thirteen's POV

"What the hell just happened?" Jason mumbles as he rubs at his head.

Lily hides the taser behind her back. "Not my bad, " She says. We all look pointedly at her. She shrugs.

"We could ask you the same question, " Chase says as he holds his hand out a hauls Jason to his feet.

"What are you talking about?" Jason questions.

"You've been missing for months now. We've been looking for you."

Jason looks at all of us in confusion. "Now I really don't know what you're talking about."

Chase gives him an incredulous look. "Do you remember the last time we saw each other? Do you remember Garrett hitting you in the head with that metal chair?"

"Yeah. . . what's the problem?"

Lily snickers, Devin rolls his eyes, Zack looks like the entire conversation is boring him, Sam's got a blank look on his face, I glare at Jason, and Chase looks like he's going to strangle him. Jackson rocks back on his heels, hands his pockets, an amused smile on his face.

"What's the problem?" I repeat, my voice deadly calm. Lily sticks her fist in her mouth and turns away, her body shaking in silent laughter. "The problem is that the last time we saw you was on your death bed and then you vanished and we don't hear from you for months. You basically dropped off the face of the earth and now we find you again, following this idiot." Jackson lets out a protest when I point my finger at him.

"Dude, " Devin starts. "you'd have to be pretty crappy at following people for him to pick you out. I'm embarrassed for you." Jackson glares at Devin.

Jason gives us a look of confusion. "I wasn't following him. I was following someone else. He went into the club and I was waiting for him to come back out."

"Huh, I hope it wasn't the guy I tazed. Cause in that case you're going to be waiting for a long time."

Jason turns and gives Lily a look, and then studies her closely. His eyes narrow in confusion and then widen in shock. "Lily?" He turns from her and to me and back again. "I thought she was. . . and what's Zack doing here?"

"You've kind of missed out on some things, " Devin says.

Lily narrows her eyes at Jason. "How do you know who I am?"

Jason just points at me.

Lily nods. "Makes sense." She continues to study him, eyes narrowed. Finally, she turns to me. "I don't like him."

Jason narrows his eyes at her. "You tazed me. If anything, I shouldn't like ?you."

"Yeah but I can get away with doing that stuff."

"Give me one good reason why."

"I'm cute."

Jason gives her a look of bewilderment before turning to me. "Is she for real?"

"What have you been doing during the entire time you were MIA?" I ask him, ignoring his question.

"I was not MIA, so I really don't know what you're talking about."

"We were looking for you and we couldn't find you. We called your phone about a billion times and you never picked up."

"Ok well, if I'm being honest, I don't know where the hell my phone is."

here?" I ask as I glare at him.

Jackson shoots me a wide smile. "Lack of more interesting things to do."

"I hear hospital visits can be interesting."

He glances down at his watch. "Well would you look at the time, I better get going." He gives me a finger wave as he starts to walk away. "I'll call you with anything else I find."

"You do that."

I hear a yelp of pain and look over at Jason who'd clutching at his arm, and Lily's got the taser in hand.

"Oh calm down, I toned down the voltage."

"That doesn't mean it doesn't still hurt, " Jason hisses at her. He turns to me. "Keep her away from me."

"Why? I'm not so bad, " Lily says.

"I'm not concerned about what you'll do to me."

"Concerned you'll do something you'll regret?"

"Oh no, I won't regret it."

"You attack me and I'll retaliate in the worst possible way."

"I don't doubt that. That's the only reason I'm restraining myself."

Lily puts her hands on her hips and sticks her tongue out at him. He gives her a look and shakes his head.

"There's something wrong with her, " He announces.

"You're just now figuring that out?" Chase questions as he comes walking back over to us.

I raise my eyebrows at him. "You done?" He shoots me a glare. He shoves his hands in his pockets and Devin walks up, coming to stand next to me and as far away from Chase as possible.

"So. . ." Devin trails off. He looks at me. "Are you going to call Zero for his latest screw-up, or shall I?"

I shake my head. "I'll take care of this one. There's no need for you to step in."

I'd rather Devin still had some relationship left his father by the end of all this.

Devin shrugs. "I can take care of it. It really isn't a problem. I know just the person to tip off." He smiles widely.

I shake my head again. "I needed to ask him about something else anyway. So, either way I'll be giving him a call."

"Alright then."

"Since our business here is clearly done, " Zack speaks up. "Can we leave now?"
