Kyra:

Her words didn’t reassure me too much. I knew Jonah was skilled with deception, but Marie was dangerous. After lunch, we went back to teach our classes. Or rather Kira went to teach hers, and I taught Jonah’s. Usually, I taught my own class with Andrew’s assistance, but to today we were each teaching on our own.

In the middle of my class I got a phone call. I left the kids to do their drills, making a few adjustments with my feet as I stepped over students all aiming downrange at targets several hundred yards out. "Hello?"

"I want you co come back in Kira."

I hesitated only a moment before nodding and replying with only, "Yes Ma'am."

"I have some questions I want to ask you. I will have a driver ready for you within a few minutes. Be ready to go right away."

"I will get someone to finish my class and head to the front gates."

"Good. Hurry along now Kira."

Ending the call I sighed through my nose and called the class to focus. "Clean up your rounds, and retrieve your targets. Then I want you to field strip and clean your weapons. I'll have another teacher come by to ensure you are doing it right."

With solemn nods all around I left them too it, heading into the school while dialing Kyra's number.

Kyra:

I stepped away for a minute to answer Kira’s call. It wasn’t good, I already knew. She never called me unless something was wrong. I could count on my hand the number of times she had called me. It had to be something to do with Jonah.

"Marie wants me to come back." I was short and too the point. Letting out a sigh I rubbed my forehead a moment. "I don't....look. I have to go. But I really don't want any of you coming after us alright? She said she just wants to ask some questions. I believe her. I just wanted....I wanted to tell you rather then disappear on you. I'll be fine." I was rambling and I knew it. I cut myself off and then said my goodbyes and hung up.

Kyra:

I was scared for her but touched that she had thought to call me before leaving. My throat felt tight when we said goodbye. The way she had spoken about her situation before made it seem like it was very possible she wouldn’t be coming back from this.

Jonah:

I had been questioned many times from many different angles. Still, my alibi was sound. I had thought of every possibility. Marie still suspected me. She would regardless of whether I had been there or not.

Finally, she said Kira would be coming to be questioned as well. That wasn’t ideal. But Kira was nearly as skilled as I was. We had rehearsed what she would say in the event that Maire did question her. And there was more on the line than just me. Her family could be in trouble if she didn’t perform at her best.

Kira:

When I slid into the backseat of the waiting car I put on my mask. I tightened it down further during the flight, ignoring Marie's man as he sat beside me on the plane. By the time I was pulling up in front of her building my emotions were buried deep. Not only involving Jonah, but my family too.

Jonah and I had practiced alibis together. His suggestion in fact. So I was prepared for questions, but that didn't stop the all too familiar feeling of a weight in my stomach as I walked through the front doors.

I was with Marie when she got word that Kira had arrived. She didn’t dismiss me as I would have expected. Instead she had me sit next to her. I barely looked at Kira when she walked into the room.

I stepped into the room, standing before her and clasping my hands behind my back. I didn't look at Jonah more than a passing glance. My gaze now settled on a spot above Marie and then I went still as a statue.

She didn't speak for several minutes, glancing up from her tablet every now and then before setting it aside on her lap and just watching me. It was her time, her schedule. I knew that. "You are looking good Kira. But it's time we talked."

My gaze dipped then as my head nodded. "Yes Ma'am."

She started off with small questions, little things. She knew how to play the game. And she held nothing back as the questions came. Her voice never wavered. It wasn't affectionate perse, but like a person gazing upon their prized horse. Their prized unruly horse.

But I was well prepared, I was skilled and didn't slip up. I made it through without a waiver. And after the questions stopped I waited, having never moved from the position I was in.

Jonah:

Throughout her questioning of Kira, she would aim one at me. It was designed to trip me up. Questions about Kira’s part that I wouldn’t have known unless I had fed the words to her, which was the case. But I expected this too. I was impassive the whole time.

“Take a seat, Kira,” Marie said after several minutes of silence. She motioned to the spot next to me, across from her. She then called someone into the room who handed her a manila envelope.

“I have an assignment for the two of you,” She said without further mention of the man in the suit. Apparently, we had passed her test.

Kira:

We seemed to have passed, as I was finally directed to sit down. I settled into the chair and folded my hands in my lap. Again I went still, the very picture of a doll. I followed the man who handed off an envelope with my eyes alone.

"What's the target?" I couldn't help the slight curious tilt my head gave as I looked from the envelope to Marie

Jonah:

She pulled out a photo but neglected to give us a name. She explained the situation. We were to kidnap him and bring him back to her fully functioning. It was top secret and essential that we get in and out under the radar.

The location was an island in the Philippines run similarly to Marie’s city. It would be the most difficult thing the two of us had ever done. Not to mention once we were in the city we would have no outside help. We would be dropped off by boat and then we were on our own until we made it back to the boat.

Lacing my fingers together and listend to the information. It wasn't going to be easy, in fact one could almost say it was impossible. But so too did I believe that it was impossible for us to get out of Marie's city without being noticed.

"Do we have options on gear or is that limited for us as well?" This could have just been an extra step of the test. A challenge she'd set up. It wouldn't have been the first time that I'd experienced. No matter what kind of test this was, I'd make sure we passed it. We had too.

Jonah:

“You will be given supplies to choose from. Anything you don’t want you may leave on the boat. You will be leaving tomorrow evening. Rest up. I need you both to be at peak performance. No mistakes. Do you understand?”

I said yes. This was something serious. Serious enough that she was willing to fore go her suspicions of me. Which meant there was something valuable on the line.

"Yes Ma'am." I nodded and then stood up. I paused then before asking, "Where shall we be staying tonight? At the Training room or in the Tower?"

I knew the training room was probably cleaned up now. But I didn't know if that would mean Marie would grant us use of it yet. It would offer the most privacy for myself and Jonah but would place us in close proximity. Staying at the tower would let Jonah do his thing and possibly get us both in more trouble but would certainly keep us apart. I didn't know which option was better.

Jonah:

“Jonah will be staying in the training room,” She answered Kira’s question then looked at me. “You may go there now.” She dismissed me. I left without looking at Kira. I would have preferred to be in the towel. It gave me better access to people and information. But the training room offered me more control in a way. It would be easier to talk to Zero without notice.

I glanced at Jonah as he walked past before settling on Marie. She hadn't dismissed me yet, so I shifted my posture to one better suited to waiting. Knowing Marie it could be seconds or hours before she decided she was ready to share what she was thinking or send me on my way.

There had been times that I thought she actually enjoyed having me around. Though I also suspected it was the enjoyment of having one's favored pet sitting nearby. Marie certainly wasn't one to be motherly, passing off such things to others. But as I waited I was struck as I often was, that I wanted this woman's praise. I wanted her to be proud of me.

Even though I didn't deserve any of it.

Kira received a more complete briefing on the situation. The name and connections of the target. He was the son of a man in a similar position as Marie. He was her biggest competition. She wanted the son for information as well as a bargaining chip. If Kira and Jonah were able to succeed in the mission, it would also be a show of power, that Marie had the best there was working for her. Marie told Kira that she would be in charge of the mission and that she was to make the decisions should something go wrong. Marie was counting on her to make it work.

I sat back down at her behest and listened intently to the rest of the mission parameters. Inside I was frowning, feeling ill at ease over the whole mission. I felt I'd barely escaped Marie's eye when Krissy came here. An Island was much smaller, but that much easier to keep a hold of. How we would manage this was going to be tricky.

And to add to it all, I was in charge. Jonah would not like that. I was certain that he would protest it. But I wasn't about to let him take over. I needed this mission to go flawlessly. I needed everything to be perfect. If I did, maybe I could relax a little. Things would be alright. Maybe for once in his life Jonah would do as I asked, without pulling an agenda.

Though the longer I thought about it, even after I was dismissed, the more I was certain. Jonah would try something. Which meant I needed to step up and create a method that would help keep him in line.

Jonah:

I didn’t see Kira again until we were leaving Marie. I was then told that Kira was in charge of the mission and would be making all executive decisions. That was a mistake on Maire’s part. She thought it would keep me in line, but it was more likely to ruin the mission.

Kira was an excellent assassin, but she was not a master planner. She was sharp, but she was a sheep not a Shepard. Marie was adding unnecessary tension between the two of us. It was more likely to get Kira killed than it was to make the mission go smoothly.

It didn’t matter for me. Kira would have been an obstacle for me regardless of what Maire said to her. Now she would be more easily manipulated.

I contacted Zero during the night. I didn’t tell her what was going on, but rather I had her set up a few things for me in the Philippines. I found out the information I needed to have on my own.

I could tell from Jonah's expression that he wasn't pleased.  It made me focus all the more on what I could do to keep Jonah in line.  Bribing him seemed the best course of action, give him something he wanted.  But more than I fully wanted to give as well.  He wouldn't take an even trade.

"Jonah we need to talk."  I moved down the aisle and sat across from him.  He was on his phone, tapping away a message.  I glanced out the window, crossing one leg over the other as I took a moment to gather my thoughts.

"You don't like that I'm in charge."  It was a simple statement and I finally looked at him after it.  "But what's done is done.  Tactics are more your suit than mine.  But I also know you.  Don't make this into something we regret."

Looking down at the ground for a moment I bit my lip for a moment then stood up.  "So behave yourself."  Moving to walk past him I paused and leaned in closer my lips barely brushing his ear so I could murmur, "If you do...I want you to take me on a date, because you are right. I do have some feelings. But also to make up for you skipping out on breakfast."  Straightening I returned to the couch, lounging across it and picking up my laptop as if I hadn't just shared a personal secret with him.

Jonah:

Kira was trying to manipulate me. If it had been under other circumstances, perhaps I would have let her win if only to get my way in the end. But now I had something bigger within grasp. Kira could have offered me almost anything and still I would proceed with my plan. The only thing she could do to stop me at this point was to swear she would help me over take Marie and mean it. That, or kill me.

Not even her confession of having feelings did anything to sway me. It wasn’t much of a confession anyway. I knew she had feelings. She could mean that she felt friendship toward me. Or she felt physically attracted to me. It wasn’t enough.

For the first few hours of the flight I didn’t speak to her. I watched the land we flew over, and listened to music with headphones. After a lunch I moved to sit next to her. “I’ll behave. But Kira, you’re going to need my help. This is too big of a mission to plan on your own. You can have the final say, but you should use my help.” She would be suspicious if I simply let her lead. I would never do that and she knew it. And it was true, she couldn’t do this on her own. Not successfully. Not without the help of me, or Zero, or someone else pulling strings.

I sighed as he sat next to me on the couch, forcing me to pull my legs back so as to not crowd him. Pulling off my own headphones I searched his face for a long moment. "Jonah. I know you don't like this. I know you are planning something. I can deal with that. The mission must be completed however."

Looking out the window for a long moment eventually I nodded, "I will use you. Because you are right. I need help. But Jonah...don't ruin this for us. We have a chance to get things calmed down. I need this. For my own sanity if nothing else."

Turning my laptop towards him I showed him that I was already working with Zero and the tentative plan I had in mind so far.

Jonah:

“I may have my own agenda, but you know I wouldn’t do anything to piss off Marie that badly,” I said. It was a lie. I leaned in to look at the plans she and Zero had mocked up, and made small suggestions.

There had been a moment last night when I hesitated with my plans. It would severely damage my relationship with Kira depending on how much I had to do to get what I wanted. It wouldn’t be the same. She was on the verge of giving into me. This would undo so much of the work I had done.

But then, she was only on the verge of giving into me physically. Her mind was still reluctant to give in. She was still Marie’s. She wouldn’t turn against the woman for me. That was why I had to do this. I had to make my own way and take the consequences.

For a second, I looked at Kira’s face as she explained some of the plans. Would I let her get hurt to get what I wanted? Probably. Would I let her die? I traced her face with my eyes until I got to her throat. Would I kill her?

Kira:

"I can name several things that would disagree with that statement Jonah." I countered softly while pulling off my headphones entirely and tossing them across the aisle to an empty chair. I glanced from the plans to him, curious as to what he thought.

It didn't take long for small suggestions to come forward and with Zero on the line we hashed out the few changes until everyone was satisfied with the arangement. Zero wasn't going to be able to follow or help us with this task, so when I finally hung up the call with her it was basically done on her end.

Settling back I pulled the laptop onto my lap and leaned over the screen, lacing my fingers together as I tried to plan and think of contingencies and changes that might need to happen once we landed on the island. I could feel Jonah's eyes on me and I glanced his way, catching his gaze sliding down from my face.

I couldn't quite read his expression, but it made the hairs on the back of my neck rise and the urge to quickly get away from him began to bubble up. My instincts told me I should move, and yet I stayed.

Jonah:

I met her gaze when she looked at me. In a micro expression, I saw fear flash in her eyes. I couldn’t help the momentary surge of satisfaction followed by the urge to kiss her. We held each other’s gaze for a moment longer than we should have.

I leaned back and looked out the window at the ocean far below us. I wouldn’t kill her. Not unless she tried to kill me. And I wouldn’t let her die if it was within my power to prevent. Still, we wouldn’t be the same after this.

My life was going to change. In the transition, Kira might hate me, but after? When Marie was gone, and I was in her place. Would Kira chose to stay? Would she try to stop me along the way? She was likely the only person who could, and then only if she caught me off guard. From now on that would be nearly impossible for her.
