When Ken arrived at the place where he was supposed to meet with No.3, he became wary. The place that he said is an empty old building with a signboard that it is set for renovation. He did not go out of the car at first, and tried to observe the surrounding. After making sure that nobody was near enough to do him damage, he got out of the car.

Just then, his phone vibrated on his pocket.

He closed the door of the car and took his phone from his pocket. It was a call from the mentor.

"Mentor." He answered, his eyes were roaming around the place.

'Where could Yuki be?'

"Where are you?"

The mentor's voice sounded a little different, and Ken thought that it was because of Yuki's kidnapping. He gritted his teeth. He would not forgive anybody who is involved in harming her. He would punish them all, make sure that they will never have another chance to hurt his cherished woman.

"I'm already in the area where they brought her." He answered.

He heard the mentor sighed in reassurance.

"How did you learn of the location fast?"

Ken frowned.

'This is strange. How come the Mentor does not know what is happening?'

"Code 3?" He asked, his voice turned deadly cold. If the person he is talking with is not the mentor, he won't be able to answer his question.

'If he is not the mentor, this person is really good. The voice was exactly like him.' He pondered.

"Kill swiftly."

Ken let out a sigh of relief.

In case of a suspected fake identity, they have codes that only a certain Number would know an answer to it. The answer changes every week.

"It was No. 3 who called me and informed me the location." He answered, as he began to inch forward to the building, moving very lightly and carefully.

"Shit!"

The Mentor's curse sounded a bit off on Ken's ears. It was very rare to hear the Mentor cursing, and he wondered why.

"Return right now, No. 2! You've been set up! No. 3 did not make any phone call, he is here with me!"

Ken's fingers froze on his phone. He clearly heard the Mentor's voice.

However, it was too late.

For the moment that he turned to back away, he sensed several footsteps coming towards him.

He hang up the phone and put it on his pocket. He straightened his back, and began to count the people who have surrounded him completely.

Four…six…eight. Eight people nearby…and one observing him from afar.

He took a deep breath.

In a moment, eight men wearing black suits and black shoes appeared. All of them have knives on their hands. Ken has many questions on his mind.

Why did the phone number appear in his phone as No. 3's?

Why did these people know that he would immediately go if Yuki's name was mentioned?

As of now, he decided to focus on fighting and staying alive. He does not have all the tools

ing caught in her own trick, Kana opened her eyes, and simultaneously stepped back away from the two disturbing presences in the room.

She looked like a cornered cat, with her eyes scanning all the corners of the room for her possible escape route. She found only one exit, behind the older man.

"Who are you? What do you want from me?" She asked, eyeing the two men intently.

The man who was leaning at her earlier stood up to his full height, and with an amused glint on his dark brooding eyes, he let out a chuckle.

The older man looked at her with warmth in his eyes and a gentle look on his wrinkled face. He has white hair, and white beard. His presence was overbearing with elegance. For a brief moment, Kana almost notice a sparkle of a tear-like bead at the corners of his eyes.

The younger man, who would be in his early 30s looked at her as if she is his prey. He stood there looking proud and arrogant, with hands inserted deep in his pockets, wearing a pair of navy suits, and black leather shoes. His face was ruggedly good-looking, with deep-seated eyes against thick eyebrows. His nose was dominantly pointed on his oval face, and a carefully-maintained stubbles highlighted his full lips and masculine jaws. She could surmise that if he won't shave for a week, he would look like an Arab man with all the hair growth on his face.

But for Kana, he was nowhere near Ken's appeal.

"Relax, Lady Kana. You are safe with us."

The younger man stated after a minute's staring battle. At her suspicious glare, the younger man raised both of his hands, palms showing to her in a gesture of clean surrender.

"Please don't look like that, Lady Kana. I would never do anything to hurt my bride-to be."

He said then, glancing at the older man beside him, and the older man just nodded a little, indicating his approval of Kirito's statement.
