My turbulent thoughts didn't help appease the sense of unease within me. All of a sudden, I felt like I couldn't trust anyone around me anymore.

First, it's dad, hiding secrets from me. Next, it's Nathan who hid his identity from me, but I understand his reasons in doing so. Last but not least, it's my best friend that I've known for almost my whole life, that is suspected to be involved in kidnapping me.

"So, how the hell did you end up here? All alone? And from what I saw, you definitely aren't a Apeiron. Neither does this place seem like your home." The mysterious woman questioned me, and I peeked gingerly at the motorcycle mirror.

I couldn't see any more vehicles on our trail, which explains why she decelerated. Giving her a dubious look, I wasn't sure whether to trust her or not.

However, she did save my life, I guess I owe her an answer.

"I was kidnapped." I stated briefly, as if was an everyday fact.

My body lurched forward, bumping roughly against the woman. She halted her motorcycle abruptly, turning sharply towards me.

"Holy shit! For real? Kidnapping?"

"...yep. And it's by Aquarius, that crazy water lady."

That last word made the woman snort. "I wouldn't call her a lady, she's batshit crazy."

I chuckled lightly at her insult for Aquarius, and she broke the cheery atmosphere with another question.

"So, what exactly made you get kidnapped? By the Talbot, especially. They are filthy rich, why are they concerned over someone like you?"

She's blunt and rude, but her words do speak the truth.

I sighed, glancing at up at the sky. "I don't know."

Well, most of it anyway, all I know is that Dad made someone really mad, since he's planning to blow the whistle.

Of course, he hasn't done it yet and I have absolutely no idea why.

"Heh, you are lying. It's so obvious, you are a bad liar. Anyway, it isn't my business to pry."

"Are you always this...brash in your words?"

She suspired at my inquiry, rolling her eyes. "Our gender is way too sensitive to everything--oh damn."

Almost instantly, I heard the engine roaring to life. "How the hell did they find us? I went invisible!"

What?

I frowned at her last few words, my words abruptly cut off by her strong grip on my wrist. "Why the heck do you have this phone?!"

I made a confused noise, looking down at my hand. The smartphone that I stole from the guard was still in my hands, and a thought immediately hit me.

Crap.

They tracked it down, it's probably a company's phone.

"Crap! I'm so sorry!" I blanched, quickly tossing the phone away as the woman growled in annoyance, speeding off.

I could hear vehicles trailing behind us and this time, I dared to open my eyes as she sped up. Glancing back, a slight squeak escaped my mouth when I realised dozens of vehicles were right behind us.

"Hey! Come back here! I went through so much to catch you! Goddamnit!" A familiar high-pitched voice exclaimed, and I groaned in frustration.

"Duck down!"

I followed her command, ducking down and I noticed a flash of blue zooming past me.

Crystal, clear water.

It's Aquarius.

She's trying to grab me and pull me to her, just like the first time.

"Argh!" I heard a furious shriek from Aquarius at her missed attack.

Yikes.

I exhaled shakily, goose bumps raising on my arms at the thought of being kidnapped once again. Regaining my composure, I focused my attention back on the woman.

"...where are we going? Ermm..." I questioned, only to remember that I didn't know her name.

"Kim! Just call me Kim! For now, we j

t to my family's villa, rescued by a woman named Kim and came back here, by yourself?" Jessie summarised my entire explanation, while my parents and Nathan remained silent.

"Yeah, kinda."

"How did you-"

"No more, no more! I have some questions of my own!" I interrupted Nathan, frustrated as I turned my attention to my father.

"Dad, you have to tell me what's going on, right now. I may not be so lucky next time round, so, I need to prepare myself in advance. Please, tell me what the heck is going on."

"You won't get kidnapped ag-"

"No one knows about that. Just tell me dad, and stop delaying, please." I implored my father and he sighed in resignation.

"Alright."

It seems he hasn't told anyone about the whole situation, seeing as how they leaned in closer when my father responded.

"The company that I work for...I have a video evidence of them, and this video evidence—this evidence, could bring the whole company down."

The whole company down?

Christ, just how bad is this evidence?

"What did they do, dad?" I asked, apprehensive. My father's tone didn't bode well with me, especially the way he clenched his fists after my inquiry. My father slowly turned to face us, I could sense the hesitance in him as he finally responded.

"They sabotaged the launching phase of the cube. They caused hundreds of deaths and also, the creation of apeirons."

I gasped in horror, staggering back in shock at the revelation.

Holy crap.

"Wh-what? What does your company exactly do?" Nathan spoke up, alarmed at this newfound information too. He still had his voice changer equipped on him, which led me to assume that everyone here doesn't know his real identity yet.

My father shook his head, frowning at the ground. "I'm not exactly sure, but I know that if this cube were to succeed, it would affect my company adversely. They are very secretive of their projects, a simple worker like me isn't allowed to take a peek, not even once. Only people of higher authority were allowed to take glances at the projects."

"Honey, who do you exactly work for?" My mother finally voiced out her words, narrowing her eyes at my father.

"It's the Tal Inc., and the person I work for is..." My father trailed off, his eyes on Jessie, as if he was asking permission to continue on.

"...it's my grandfather." Jessie spat out, rage swirling in her eyes.
