    With all that was going on in the house, Remey didn't even notice the two outside, blocking the exits and setting the house a blaze. It wasn't until smoke started to fill up the house that he knew what was going on.

    He grabbed Belle who was starting to cry in fear, and grabbed Mar's hand. He Tried the front door but it wouldn't open. Panicking now, he handed the little girl to Marley and ran back to the kitchen. He smashed through the large window and broke all the glass out of the frame, causing deep cuts all over his hand and arm.

    He then started to help the two out of the house.

    "Daddy! My...Turtle!" Belle suddenly cried. He nodded to the little girl as he pushed the two outside, the house becoming taken over by hot flames. He had to get the turtle.

    "It's going to be ok." He told the two, struggling not to choke on the smoke. He ran back into the fire to save the little turtle...

    Laz didn't notice the smoke or flames right away, but it wasn't long before he realized the house was on fire.

    He met up with Rose walking to the kitchen and grabbed her hand. "The house is on fire." He informed in his best 'don't panic' voice. The smoke and flames started to fill up his little home, it was long before they were surrounded but the fire.

    He ran to the kitchen and took his shirt off, he drenched the shirt in cold water and put it over Rose's head, hoping it would help some, with the heat and fire.

    He ran to the door but it wouldn't open. He pushed and shoved it, then finally backed up and rammed himself at the door causing it to burst open and his shoulder to dislocate.

    Everything was happening so fast that poor Marley didn't understand what was going on, until the smoke began to invade her lungs. She frantically tried to help Remey, but was soon shoved out the window with little Belle, who was crying about her turtle. She held the child protectively, but reached out to try and stop Remey before he reentered the burning house. She loved that little turtle almost as much as Belle did, but she loved Remey more. Her eyes went wide and she screamed out for him.


    "REMEY.. NO!" She was choked by the onset of coughs, tears threatening to fall, but they wouldn't come. It was as if the heat had left her completely dehydrated. She wanted to rush after him, but not with Belle still in her arms. She rushed to the car and carefully placed Belle inside. "Stay here, okay? I have to go help your daddy..."

    Belle held on to Marley tightly and wouldn't let her go, even when placed in the car, Belle still hung on.

    Marley wouldn't have to worry for long though. Soon Remey came out the house coughing and holding the turtle close to him. He collapsed on the ground, trying to catch his breath.

    Marley knew that Belle was scared and she didn't want to leave her alone, but she needed to make sure that Remey was okay. What if the smoke got to him, and he lost consciousness? What if he got trapped? She had nearly lost him once, she didn't want to go through that again!


    "It's okay.." She tried to soothe the child, choking back sobs in between lung-splitting coughs. "I have to.. help.." Before she could finish her sentence, she caught a glimpse of Remey out of the corner of her eye, her heart jumping into her throat. She wasted no time trying to untangle herself from Belle, rushing to his side with the child still in her arms, and dropped to her knees beside him. She placed one hand on his back, frantically trying to see his eyes..

    "Remey.. are you okay?"

    Remey just nodded and handed Belle her turtle. She took it and hugged the poor creature close to her. Soon the sounds of sirens were heard.

    Rose suddenly went numb when the reality of what was happening hit her full force. Before she could react, Laz placed the wet shirt over her face and was led to the door that wouldn't open. She peeped out from beneath her makeshift safety cloak, her gaze darting frantically around. She heard the unmistakable pop of Laz' shoulder when he slammed against the door, his force busting it open. The sound made her sick to her stomach, but there was no time to do anything about it. She grabbed his hand, tugging him out the door...

    Laz ran outside with Rose just as the fire trucks were pulling on to the street. Once they were a safe distence aways from the home all he could do, was hold Rose close and watch his home burn to the ground.

    After Mikko had left, Kendall went back to holding Zoe until she finally woke up. Crying, of course, so it either meant she was hungry, had gas, or just crying for no specific reason. It had been a while since his own kids had been that young and every child was different anyway. It was always a new experience with Zoe.

    He stood up from the couch and went to go change her. That having no effect, next was seeing if she was hungry. He took the crying baby back out of their bedroom and called Daisy's name.

    "Babe, she might be hungry. I just changed her." It was trying to be a parent at times with kids this young. Both Daisy and Kendall were exhausted from being up odd hours of the night while tending to the little girl.

    Post by Mikko on Thu May 26, 2011 3:32 pm

    Mikko was already at the docks. She was tired of sitting at home alone, so she went out to start her job. Bishop wanted people, but he never said that she couldn't rough em up a bit. She had grabbed a female, blond hair green eyes, she was pretty, well, was pretty. Now she was kneeling on the docks, her hands and feet bound with rope and razer wire. Mikko knelt in front of the woman and was now slowly sewing her lips shut.

    Serenity leaned against Gabe and kept silent the whole trip. She knew that Gabe had a lot on his mind and didn't want to bother him. The closer they got to the city the more nervous she felt for Gabe. It seemed like a shorter trip then usual. They were soon pulling up to the very spot that Gabe had died, and she had yet to notice Mikko and her poor victim.


    Indeed, the trip was uneventful. But despite the fact that Gabriel had so much on his mind, the long drive had tired him out, and he had fallen asleep, his cheek resting against the top of Serenity's head, one hand lying idly on Jigs' back.

    Fortunately there had been no arguing, but Lexi was not enjoying the quietness of this trip. She had turned on the radio, turning it low when she realized that Gabe had fallen asleep. A tiny grin hinted at the corners of her lips. Long trips still tired him out, obviously. He was still the same. But when they finally arrived at the docks, a cold chill took hold of her, and her lungs constricted. She slowly pulled the black BMW toward the exact dock where the 'murder' had happened. The place where she had fought for him, and nearly died trying to save him. She could feel the hot tears burning at the back of her eyes, despite her best efforts to hold it together. Memories of that night came flooding forward, and she finally lost the battle with her tears as her eyes fell upon the exact spot. The yellow tape still barricaded the crime scene, broken segments flapping wildly in the night's harsh wind. She could see it all playing out before her. Feel the warmth of his blood as he laid dying in her arms. And felt that overwhelming pain in her chest when he took his last breath. She choked back the sob that threatened to rip through her, watery eyes squinting to make out the shapes on the dock.. it seemed they were not alone...


    Mikko heard the sound of the car pull up and snapped her head in the direction. She slipped her gun from her belt. "You stay quiet." She told the woman with a chuckle. Once the car parked she aimed her gun at the car and yelled at. "What the fuck you want!?"


    Serenit sat up once they got there, she looked around and then her eyes focused on what Lexi was looking at. She then heard a woman yelling outside. She knew that voice..."Gabe wake up."

    And soon, whoever was on that dock was pointing a gun in their direction. It was too far of a distance for her to see that it was Mikko, and even if she knew, it would only add to her reason to want to leave. But she was NOT going to stick around with this lunatic pointing a gun in their direction! She quickly threw the car into reverse, the wheels squealing and causing a shower of mud...

    But the sudden jolt of the car, coupled with Serenity's coaxing caused Gabriel to stir. He slowly lifted his head, realizing they were there, and that Lexi was panicked and trying to get them out of there. "Wow.. what are you doin'?!" He asked in confusion, clearly not yet noticing the reasoning behind her frantic motive.

    When the car started to back away she put the gun away and went back to her victim. "Where were we?" She asked then pulled her knife from her boots. "Bishop never said you had to have eyes."



    Raphael put a hand on Lexi's as they made it to the docks, he could see that she was upset and tried to sooth her with his touch. But the moment didn't last for long as he soon saw Mikko pointing a gun in their direction, it seemed to be a similar moment of the last time they were here, he glared out through the windsheild but was suddenly pushed forward as Lexi backed up frantically. He braced his arm against the dash bored giving her a stern look. "We need ta get outta 'ere, that fuckin' bitch is crazy enough ta pull the trigger!"

    Seren leand over to Gabe and whispered to him. "Mikko was out there. Lexi wants to leave now."



    "I'm getting us the fuck out of here! Whoever it is has a gun.."Lexi replied to Gabriel's question, not second-guessing Raph's 'suggestion'.

    But Gabe wasn't ready to leave.The trip had been long and tiresome, and he didn't want to leave here without what he had come for. Or at least a fair try. Serenity mentioned Mikko, and while the name sent up hundreds of red flags from all that Lexi had told him, it wasn't enough to discourage him from his quest. But the situation became more urgent when the car was thrown into drive, giving him a better view of the incident on the dock from the back window. But his faulty vision made it hard to make out what was going on.. but it looked like someone was in trouble. "Wait.. we can't just fuckin' leave and let that girl die!" He huffed, and without giving Lexi time to respond, threw the hoodie over his head to conceal his identity, in case anyone was watching, and hopped out of the moving car. The momentum nearly caused him to lose his balance, but he quickly rebounded, and headed toward the dock, pulling the small pistol he had tucked into the waistline of his jeans, concealed by his shift. "Hey!" He called out, pointing the pistol in Mikko's direction. "Let her go!"

    Serenity tried to stop Gabe from jumping out of the car and almost fell out herself. She turned to Lexi and Raph. "Stop the car!"

    Mikko let out a deep sigh and spun around. "Gabe! What are you doing here, babe? And no can do, This bitch has a date with my boss. After I'm done with her."

    "We can call 911 for her.." Lexi shot back, but was suddenly taken aback when she heard the door open, and witnessed from the corner of her eye as Gabe hopped out of the moving vehicle. Her blood suddenly went cold as she slammed on her breaks, throwing the car into park. "Are you fucking crazy?!" She snapped at Gabe, jumping from the car and trying to corral him back towards the car, but he wasn't stopping.

    Mikko was covered in blood, the bloody knife held in her hand as she walked out of the shadows and into the light. "Sorry about the gun thing. I didn't know it was you."

    Bones and Nick were about to head out to go to the party when Bones stopped out on the belcony, looking down at the men who he now lead, if only for the day.

    "Men!" He screamed over the loud music, soon the music shut off and everyone's attention was on him.

    "I've been foolishly put in charge over this gang, and finally I can speak what's been on my mind for a while now. It's time that we stop hiding in the shadows, that we stop following this fuckin rules about gang etiquette! Those people out there are nothing more then parasites! WE are the exterminators! I want every one of you, tonight, to go out and recruit more men for our army, and those that don't wish to join us, kill them! Burn this city to the fuckin ground!"

    Bones smiled on as the men cheered and started to run out of the building. He then turned to Nick. "Now we can go."

    Ace wrote:"Sounds good to me." He leaned over and kissed her. He then pulled out of the parking lot and sped off down the street. If there were people waiting for them at the house he really didn't want them trying to get inside or something.




    Ally returned the kiss and leaned forward to fidget with the radio as Ace sped off towards their home. "Worried that they'll get there before us?"

    Ace grinned at her then turned back to the road. "Yes, actually. Would hate for our guest to be outside waiting for us." Though really he didn't want the guest breaking into the house to get inside.

    Though guest were already there. Kelly and Angel pulled up only to be greeted by Sugar and dragonface. Angel was a little bummed that DF was there but didn't say anything.

    "Hope they're on their way." Sugar said and lit DF's cig for him.

    As Belle held on to her turtle and watched her burning house, she wiped her face off with the back of her hand. She then reached over and tugged on Remey's sleeve.

    "I...I wanna talk to...Mr Fluffy." She said through her tears.

    Remey took Belle from Marley though he was still in some pain from the smoke he inhaled. "Not now, ok sweetie?"

    "Please?"

    Remey sighed deeply and pulled out his cell phone. He again dialed Mike's number and handed the phone to Belle.

    Mike was still goofing off in the kitchen with Fraya when his phone began to ring. He quickly pulled it from his belt, answering without looking at the caller ID.


    "Hellooooo??" He greeted happily, unaware of the gloom awaiting on the other end of the receiver....

    Belle sniffled into the phone. "Mr. Fluffy. Someone...put fire in our house." She told him sadly and wiped at her face again.

    By now the camera crew had shown up, this was their fourth fire that night, And while the little girl was on the phone, Remey was trying to answer the cop's questions.

    The sirens could be heard in the background, but through the shock of what was happening, Marley didn't register them. She was still by Remey's side, trying to examine the extent of the damage sustained to his arms by the shattered glass.


    "We need to get someplace safe and get your arms treated, babe.."


    And then the camera crew showed up, and Mar did her best to avoid being in the spotlight as Remey answered questions. She wasn't sure what was going on, but she was completely shaken up, on the verge of tears.

    Remey listened in on Belle's conversation and nodded to Marley, though he really hoped that she didn't mean going to the hospital. He tried to answer the cops as best he could, while trying to protect both girls from the prying cameras.

    That's when he over heard on of the fierfighters mention that his house wasn't the only one that was burned down.

    He handed Belle back to Marley, the little girl clutching the phone and her turtle.

    "I have to go see what happen. Can you take Belle to a hotel or something for me?" They didn't need to be standing there watching everything, and nether on of them needed to be in all the smoke. And they really didn't need cameras shoved in their faces and all this stress.

    Raphael: As soon as Gabe ran out of the car, so did Raphael though he wasn't as quick. He saw the horror of what was going on and it made his blood boil jut thinking about how Mikko was able to get away with such horrible things. He Ran up to the battered woman and got down on his knees to help her but the shock at seeing what was done with her caused Raph to yell out. "Jesus Christ!!"



    Seren: Serenity also ran out the car with Jigs at her heels. Mikko wasn't paying attention to her and she was able to follow Raph to the victim. Seeing the state the woman was in made her gag and take a few steps back. How could any human do this to someone else. She got herself together and knelt next to Raph. "Do you have any blade small enough to cut these stings?" She asked Raph. The woman looked at them both, silently pleading with them to help her.



    Raphael: Raphael was stunned for a moment as he remembered being in a simular situation months before but luckily Seren came up from behind him, bringing him back to earth. He looked down at the frightened woman and brushed the hair out of her face as he whispered in her ear. "We're gonna hellp ya.. " He tired to soothe before pulling out his Sai and began to try to cut through the rope with it, it wasn't a very sharp weapon but it would have to do. It seems that Mikko hadn't noticed them yet but Raph would soon make his preasence very known to her once he was done helping this poor woman.



    Gabriel: Gabriel cautiously approached, gun still drawn as he neared the scene. His concealed eyes glinting and flashing from the woman who was approaching, blood-soaked and somewhat familiar, to the helpless girl bound and positioned on her knees, in the very place where he had lost his own life. Or, the person he once was. But something about this all seemed familiar, triggering a fleeting memory that was nearly overpowering. The smell of his own blood. The helplessness he felt. The fear that he had tried so desperately to swallow down as he heard Lexi off in the distance...but the cold metal of the sharp blade extinguished everything as it sliced through his jugular. His free hand went up and traced over the thick scar that now adorned the left side of his neck. He could only stare at Mikko, the spiked tattoo bringing forth a glimpse of his murderer. He suddenly felt dizzy, causing his eyes to slide closed and he tried to shake it off, obviously bothered, nauseated and physically sick. But his gaze once again fixated on Mikko, who could so casually put someone else in the same position. He could relate to that victim... so fearful and helpless and completely at her mercy. But she would NOT suffer the same fate that he had. His gaze was a wild mixture of anger and disbelief... disappointment. Part of him had wanted so desperately to believe that maybe.. just maybe what Lexi and everyone else had told him about Mikko was false. But seeing the scene before him made it difficult to believe otherwise. "Yer gonna let her go." His voice was stern, matter of factly. "These docks have tasted enough blood." He huffed, unsure if he should put the gun away just yet. "You ever consider how many people's lives you shatter because of your own selfish needs?" He would've freed the girl, but it seemed that Raph was working on that, so his gaze stayed trained to Mikko.. the woman that confused him. Was she 'really' his family.. someone he could trust, or someone that would put a knife in his back as soon as it was turned? Assist her boyfriend in taking him out.. again and again....and was he stupid enough to keep falling for it?



    Mikko: Mikko tucked the knife away and walked closer to Gabe, not bothered by the gun he had pointed at her. "Yer not going to shoot me are you?" She asked in a hurtful tone. She glanced back at the two helping the woman and growled. She knew that she was no match for Raph and she wasn't sure if Gabe would actually shoot her. It looked like she would have to hunt for someone else. "I'll let her go." She said. "You know that I'd do anything for you, babe." At his question she just shrugged her shoulders. "Not really my problem."



    Lexi: Lexi wanted so desperately to reach out and snag Gabe by the collar of his hoodie and pull him back to the car, but her legs weren't quick enough, and soon Raph had thrown himself into the scene. She was in a near panic, unable to control the tears that just the sight of the docks caused. She witnessed Gabe's sudden unsteadiness, and she wondered what was going through his mind. Did he remember? She stayed a step back, allowing Gabe to speak with Mikko, but wanting nothing more to pull him away from the source that had caused him so much pain.. had caused 'her' so much pain.



    Seren: Serenity went to grab the woman's restraints but saw that they were a thick sharp razor wire. There had to be gloves around there, noway Mikko tied her up with her bare hands. She looked around until she saw the gloves laying on the ground, she grabbed them and slipped them on then carefully started to peel away the wire.



    Gabriel: Gabriel still wasn't sure how he should feel about this woman, and it only became more confusing as she approached him. He was still wary about her getting too close, but she had put the knife away. He was hesitant for a moment, but hearing that she wouldn't protest them freeing the traumatized woman, he tucked the pistol back into the waistline of his jeans, concealing it beneath his hoodie. "It should be yer problem." He responded, still taking her in. It was the first time since his 'rebirth' he'd seen her. She had visited him at the hospital, but those days were a drug-induced fog to him. He didn't remember much. "That woman prolly has kids..a husband.. someone who's life won't be the same because she meant shit to you. If you've ever loved someone.. lost them.. maybe you'd care."



    Lexi: Lexi stumbled on the dock, her wobbly legs threatening to buckle beneath her as she willed them to move her toward the woman and Raph and Serenity. She wasn't sure how much help she would be, but she offered them what assistance she could, all the while trying to keep a watchful eye on Gabe and Mikko.



    Mikko: Those words hit Mikko hard. She walked up to Gabe and slapped him across the face. "Fuck you. I lost Spike...I lost YOU! I know what it's like! It didn't make me care. It just helped the hate grow. And that woman? She's no one! She's a street walker, I wasn't going to kill her, she was for my boss. Thank you very much for just giving me more work."



    Raphael: Raphael allowed Seren to get the bizarre wire off of the woman as he undid some of the rope. His heart sunk at seeing just how much pain she was in and how unescsary all this was. He wanted nothing more then to see Mikko dead, she wasn't good for anything at all. Raph glanced at lexi as she got closer. "Call the police!" He demanded sternly, his eyes never left the tortured woman as he freed her of the ropes. "She needs an ambulance.."



    Mikko: Once the woman's mouth was free she took in a large gasp of air. She stood still as Serenity got the wire off of her. "Thank...You..." She whispered to them.



    Gabriel: Gabriel was completely caught off-guard by the slap across his face. It bewildered him more than angered, and seeing the obvious hurt in her eyes registered that he had made a bigger impact than her physical slap had. She had.. .'lost' him? But hadn't she assisted her boyfriend in capturing him? There was so much confusion. He searched her eyes, trying to find answers but was only met with more frustration and confusion. "Lost me?" He gave her a confused look. "Then.. why did you choose Spike over me?" He finally managed to ask. Perhaps he didn't remember everything, but it was a question that had always nagged him ever since Lexi had told him about what happened.



    Mikko: "I tried to help you that night, I untied your hands and called Raph to come help you. It's why Spike tried to kill me." She wasn't going to go into detail and didn't want to talk about the other times she was with Spike while he tried to kill Gabe, It was too complicated to talk about. "I saved your dog tho. and....Jencko wanted me to kill your son, I refused, they....Gabe the Turks know yer alive. I'm suppose to be finishing you off, but...I told them no."



    Lexi: ...and Lexi had witnessed that slap. She pushed herself up, ready to tear into Mikko, but Gabe held out his hand, silently conveying that it was okay, to back off. It wasn't an easy request to fulfill, but she was trying to give him his space, hoping this trip would do what he had set out for, even if that meant hurting him. Her attention then shifted back to Raph, hearing his own request. "But.. what about you?" She didn't like the idea of the cops and Raph being in the same area, even if he was concealed beneath his disguise. But he was right, she did need an ambulance...



    Raphael: Raphael was getting annoyed by Lexi's hesitation, and it showed in his voice. "Don' worry a'bout meh, jus' call the damn police!" He snaped as he held out an arm for the battered woman to lean on, she was in real rough shape. His eyes stayed on her as he looked over her wounds.



    Mikko: The woman leaned heavily on Raph and closed her eyes. She hadn't even noticed Raph's apperence she was just happy for the help. Everything hurt, and she was losing blood. It would probably be faster for them to just drive her, Cops hated going in that area and offten avoided it, it was why thugs offten used the location for their crimes.



    Seren: Though she knew all about Mikko, Serenity wasn't really worried about her with Gabe. She trusted Mikko to a point, only because she personally had never been on Mikko's bad side. She took off the gloves and tossed them aside. "Maybe we should just bring her to the hospital"



    Gabriel: But Mikko wouldn't have to go into full detail. Gabe already knew. Or, knew Lexi's version of it. He just wished he could remember. Wished he could understand that why, deep down, he cared about Mikko, this girl he couldn't remember. But his struggles to do so were sidetracked by the information that the Turks knew he was alive. He was quiet for a moment, looking at her, still wishing his memory would spring from her gaze somehow. The quietness was soon broke by his deep sigh, and the tiredness of a lifetime of dodging their attacks, suffering from their beating suddenly weighing him down. Even if he couldn't remember any of it, he felt the familiar fatigue of his earlier trials. "...and so it continues." Was all he could muster. He was sure that one day, the Turks would be successful and they would eventually take him down. He couldn't hide forever.



    Lexi: Lexi cringed when Raph snapped at her, but nodded her head and reached for her phone, dialing 911. But before she could answer the receiver, she overheard Mikko telling Gabe that the Turks knew about his existence. She suddenly felt numb. "..how do they know?" She asked, tone weak and shaky. She felt sick, the color draining from her features. "Who told them?!" Her voice was more forceful, angry.



    Mikko: Mikko glanced over at Lexi. "Zac. Jencko will probably be back in the city by the morning." She told Lexi then turned back to Gabe. She then grabbed Gabe and pulled him into a tight hug. "They know that yer living with Lexi and that yer with Serenity." She said getting more upset, her face buried in his neck. "They're looking for Seren...They'll use her to get to you." She then looked up at him. "You need to stay away from the city...Tho...They know that Lexi doesn't live in the city...I think their next move is to call Lexi's manager to find out where you all are."



    Raphael: Suddenly Raphaels head turned to where Mikko was as the information slowly sunk in.. Ofcourse Lexi and anyone around Gabe would be a target which was the biggest reason why he didn't like the guy, he'd made his life by being a thug and was now slowly draging in more innocent people! Why was it that Gabe was so damn important to these idiots, it just didn't make sense to him. He stood up but not before gently pushing the woman against Seren for support. Raphalel had had enough of this, it seemed that Mikko had sealed Gabes fate yet again but he would be damned if anything were to happen to Lexi or Jake because of it. "You stupid bitch!! Ya jus' couldn't leave well enough alone, a ya jus' can't stop til eh's really dead!" He snarled at her from a distance as he walked past Lexi.



    Gabriel: Gabriel listened on, the name 'Zac' meaning nothing to him. He had been too out of it and in pain to remember the Turk doctor that had taken care of him. And had now betrayed him. He wasn't expecting the hug, but didn't pull away. As much as he wanted to resist, his arms almost automatically encircled her, giving her a light squeeze. Something about this felt familiar, the brotherly bond that he had for her. He felt numb, hearing Mikko tell him that they would go after Serenity, and that they knew he was staying with Lexi. He knew that he was putting both of them in danger by simply knowing them. He could lose them both, simply because this gang wanted to hurt him. He couldn't let that happen. He was suddenly pulled from his thoughts by Raph's shouting, causing him to glance in his direction. "Ease off." He warned, not sure if the turtle would actually attack her or not, but despite what she may or may not have done in the past, he wouldn't let him hurt her.



    Mikko: Mikko whipped around to face Raph. "I didn't do anything! I never said anything. His doctor was the one that ratted him out." Mikko said, confused by Raph's reaction. She then turned back to Gabe. "So...I assume you came here hoping to jar your memories....I wish Ezekiel was still here, he could help you remember."



    Seren: Serenity wasn't worried about the Turks finding her, she already knew that it wouldn't help their cause, she wasn't going to say a word. She wrapped an arm around the injured woman and watched as Raph started yelling at Mikko.



    Lexi: "Zac.. that son-of-a bitch! I knew from the second I laid eyes on him, he couldn't be trusted!!!" Lexi seethed, forgetting that she had the 911 dispatcher on the other line, but it made no difference...they could still pick up the location and would send in the cops and the ambulance to assist whatever situation had prompted the call. Her hands were shaky, both anger and her frayed nerves making it nearly impossible to hold them steady. Just then she saw Raph moving past her and quickly followed in behind, ready to intervene if need be. She shared Raph's feelings towards Mikko, but didn't want this scene to become any messier than it already had.



    Gabriel: Gabriel gave a slight nod at her assumption, but he couldn't find his voice to tell her that he remembered a fleeting glimpse of that night... that had taken his life. But that name.. Ezekiel... was so familiar. Like almost a part of him. And in fact, the man had been a huge part of his life. A part of his soul. Lexi had left out the more painful parts of his past, not wanting him to relive the hurt that had nearly crippled him with depression right before his 'death'. "...Ezekiel?"



    Raphael: Raphael couldn't believe that Gabe was defending Mikko especially after wittnessing one of the most horrific acts he'd ever seen Mikko commit. Was he just stupid or was it just faulty memory? Raphael though felt that his first asumption was correct. Gabe was falling into it all over again and perhaps he deserved it.. Raphael was so infurriated that he could hardly control himself from lunging at Mikko, if she wasn't in Gabes arms he most certainly would have. He was just as angry with Gabe as he was at her. "Are ya fuckin' stupid?!" He yelled at Gabes back. "Ya see that lady over there, that sick bitch yer' defendin' butchered 'er an' let the same thin' happen ta ya!" He knew that any sort of logic reasoning wouldn't convince Gabe and it was enough to drive him insane. He then glared at Mikko, he knew her little pittiful me reutine .



    Mikko: Mikko frowned. "Lexi didn't tell you about Eze?" She asked as she flipped Raph off without turning to look at him. "You two were like brothers. Hell closer then brothers. You liived with him and his little girl. He was there for you when Lexi broke off you engagment." Though she didn't too much about that, no one had bother filling in her in on details of what had happen. "Course when she finally crawled back into town, she hooked up with Eze, but by then you were Fal."



    Lexi: Lexi wanted nothing more than to rip Gabriel away from Mikko, knowing that embrace, that bit of trust that he obviously felt for her would ultimately lead him to his death. Had it not sunk in that Mikko couldn't be trusted? She didn't say anything as Raph shouted at Gabe, hoping it would sink in. And then Mikko just had to mention Ezekiel. The sirens could be heard off in the distance, snapping Lexi back to the current situation. The girl. She had all but forgotten about her, too worried about Gabriel. Then she mentioned her engagement with Gabe, and that she had broken it off with him. She suddenly felt numb. Her emotions threatening to choke her. "It's time to go, Gabe."



    Gabriel: Gabriel glared over his shoulder at Raph. He wasn't defending Mikko, but he also wasn't going to let the turtle physically hurt her, either. Yes, she had tortured some poor woman, but two wrongs wouldn't make a right. "Fuck off." He snapped, not appreciating being called stupid. His attention returned to Mikko, listening as she told him about his supposed 'brother' that wasn't around. And Lexi. He didn't know about their engagement, but had always felt there had been something there. Now, it was obvious why she hadn't told him about that... she had broken it off. For Ezekiel. His brother. He gave Lexi a hurtful look which she returned with deep apology. She had some explaining to do, and she knew it.. but this wasn't the place, nor the time. The flashing lights were drawing close now...



    Raphael: And ofcourse it didn't work, like many times before he was just background noise to anybody Lexi knew. He was tired of all this and just wanted all this drama to be over with but he knew it wouldn't end until either Mikko or Gabe were dead. The sirens were brought to his attention and he knew he had to leave, the cops would figure him out in a second. He turned to Lexi as he ignored Mikko's guesture, if only he weren't a turtle then he could return it. He put his arm around Lexi and pulled her close to him as she spoke softly in her ear. "Pick me up later babe, ya know where I'll be." He said before giving her a quick kiss goodbye and running off towards a nearby alley. Mikko may have gotten away with it this time but she wouldn't the next time they meet.



    Mikko: Mikko gave Gabe another hug and kiss on the cheek. "Lexi's nothing more then a lier" She whispered to Gabe. "You want to know something, call me." She then pulled away from him. "Sounds like it's time for me to leave. Give Jake a hug for me!" With that she quickly jumped in the car she had got there with and drove off.



    Seren: Serenity was happy that the cops were finally here. The poor woman kept falling asleep and it was getting harder and harder for Serenity to keep her awake.



    Gabriel: And just like that, Mikko was gone. He turned just in time to see the first of the patrol cars pull into the area, the flashing lights hurting his sensitive eyes. He tucked his hands in his pockets, watching as the cops and EMS team poured from their vehicles, going to the woman's aid. It appeared that Raph had skipped out, and for obvious reason. His thoughts were still plagued with what Mikko had told him, and the fact that his life was once again in danger. And the lives of those he was closest to. He had so many questions, for both Lexi and Mikko... but what was the point.. who could he trust? They had both hurt him, in different ways.



    Seren: Serenity gave the EMTS the woman then walked up to Gabe. She reached out and took his hand. "You ok?"



    Gabriel: Gabe was so lost in thought when Serenity approached that he nearly pulled away from her touch. His gaze shifted, fingers entwining with hers and giving her hand a soft squeeze. He felt torn. He should pull away. Distance himself from her, and everyone he cared about. It would be the unselfish thing to do, even if it hurt them. Even if it hurt him. But it would be for their own good. But for the moment, he couldn't help but be selfish. He needed her closeness, even if he would eventually have to push her away. Hurt her for her own good. "Yeah." He lied. "You?"



    Lexi: Lexi gave the cops what information she could, and watched as the paramedics loaded the woman into the back of the ambulance. Her attention then shifted to Gabe, watching Seren try to comfort him. She felt instant guilt, and knew he would have questions. But hopefully that could wait until she was feeling a little more emotionally strong. Just being at this dock was taking a lot out of her. She wordlessly made her way to the car, waiting for the two to join her.



    Seren: Serenity laid her head on Gabe's chest. She didn't really believe him, but wouldn't argue. "I've been better." She looked up at him and gave him a little smile. "Don't worry about the Turks, We'll move where they can't find you. A nice, large house. I think I might have the perfect place if you want to look at it later."



    Gabriel: Gabe hugged her gently, and kissed the top of her head, savoring as much time as he could with her. He knew it couldn't last. "Yeah.. I'd like that." He answered. And it wasn't a complete lie. He wanted nothing more than to have a life with her, a place they could call their own. Their own life. But he couldn't, not with the Turks threatening everyone he held dear. He held her for a moment, then reluctantly released her from his embrace. "Think we should get goin'." He said as a chilled breeze came over him, despite the warm spring night. "Not really fond of this place."



    Seren: "Yeah, I'm not either. " Serenity walked back to the car with Gabe. She looked over her shoulder one last time at the girl before ducking into the car. "I hope she'll be ok."



    Gabriel: "Yeah, hope so too. But I think she will." Gabe tried to reassure. "She seems like a fighter." Because anyone less would have died from just the shock of it all. He slipped into the back seat with Serenity, really not knowing what to say to Lexi. He felt hurt at her, for not telling him everything. But seeing how much she was hurting.. it was hard to hate her. Maybe that was his biggest flaw.. being so forgiving. He reached over, giving Lexi's shoulder a slight squeeze. Things weren't perfect between them, but she needed to know that he didn't hate her. How could he.. after all she had done for him. "Let's go get yer boyfriend." Though, being around Raph right now wasn't something he wanted.



    Seren: Serenity nodded and laid her head back on Gabe's chest. "Gabe...." Serenity started. "If you leave me because of what Mikko said...I'll kick your butt. I just wanted you to know that."



    Lexi: Lexi wasn't sure how much damage she had done.. or if Mikko had completely turned him against her, so the reassuring squeeze put her at ease, somewhat. She would still have to have a talk with him, and she knew it would be emotional. She gave a soft nod as she started the car, and soon they were on their way, destined for the place where Raph was hiding. She stopped the car, waiting for him to reemerge.



    Gabriel: Gabe held Serenity close, resting his chin against the top of her head, savoring every minute, every second with her. And then, it was as if she had read his mind. But he couldn't answer, couldn't make any promises. So he just gave her a comforting squeeze. "Love you." He whispered, conveying that he would do anything. Anything. To keep her safe.



    Seren: Serenity smiled and wrapped her arms around him. "Love you too."



    Raphael: Raphael hadn't gone all that far but managed to be out of the area of suspition. He found his way to the corner where an ice cream cart was frequently serving cheap but what Raphael thought had good ice cream cones. It was one of the only dates he was able to pay for during him and Lexi's first few months of dating, it wasn't a fancy place but was all he could do at the time. He smiled at the memory and felt it was kinda stupid to think that Lexi would remember or even think that he meant this place, even though it was the closest. The longer he waited the more he felt he should give her a call but as he pulled his phone out she pulled up. He flashed her a faint grin from under his fedora as he climbed in the front seat, ignoring Gabe completely it would seem that he would need have a serious talk with him later.



    Lexi: It was an easy spot for Lexi to remember. Perhaps it wasn't the fanciest of dates, but it was definitely memorable and special to her. She returned his grin, thankful to have him back in her sights. She reached one hand over to take his, needing some form of comfort.

    Mikko drove down the street, slouched down in the seat. She wished that she could have stayed a bit longer with Gabe, talked to him more. She didn't even care about that woman anymore, she just wanted to see Gabe again, and Jake. She missed that little kid.

    "Maybe next time he wont have Lexi and the turtle with him." She mumbled to herself. She didn't mind Serenity, she like the girl and was thankful for all the help she was giving Daisy and Zoe.

    She turned the radio on and headed home. She wondered how soon Dice was going to be back in town, not tonight, but maybe early tomorrow morning!

    "May as well go to that party, nothing else to do." She pulled out her phone and dialed Ace's number.

    "Hello?" Ace answered as he headed home.

    "Hey, turns out I can make that party after all, Where's it at?"

    Ace flashed Ally a smile and then told Mikko where to go. After, they said their good-byes and hung up.

    Mikko turned her car around and headed out the city. She again pulled her phone out and Texted Serenity.

    Going to a party, wondering if you and Gabe would like to go too. It'll be fun and maybe help get Gabe's mind off of things.

    She doubted that they would show or even get back to her, but at lest she tried.

    Serenity was practically falling asleep, all the excitment had worn her out. But then her phone started to go off. She plucked it out of her pocket and looked at the text, she then lifted the phone up so that Gabe could read it.

    She wouldn't mind going to a party, but wondered if it would be safe for Gabe to go,though she doubted that he was even up to a party.

    Gabe wished that he could have slept during the ride home, but he was still plagued with thought. It seemed that he could remember that night to some extent, and couldn't help wondering if he had gotten to stay longer, without the interruptions of Mikko torturing some girl, and the police and ambulance, if maybe he could remember everything that happened that dreadful night. He still wasn't sure what to make of Mikko. Why did he feel such a connection with her when he knew he couldn't fully trust her?


    And then there was Lexi. Mikko had informed him of things that she had failed to mention. Mikko had called her a liar. Why would she lie to him? About anything? About Mikko? He had heard about Mikko from others, too. Maybe she wasn't a liar, but it was clear that she had kept some things from him. He wanted to talk to her, but now wasn't the time, not with Raph and Serenity present.


    He was pulled from his thoughts when Serenity showed him the text, an invitation to a party. Call it strange, but after a tiring trip that had jarred the memory of his death, and more confusion than what he had came there with, he wasn't exactly feeling social. He gave Serenity a slight squeeze, conveying his apology in case she was actually wanting to go.


    "Tell her thanks... but I'm gonna have to pass. Hardly in the mood for partyin'." He would have insisted for her to go if she wanted to, and have fun. She deserved it. But what Mikko said about the Turks being after Serenity made him protective. He didn't want her out of his sight, not even for a second.

    Serenity leaned up and softly kissed his lips. "Yeah. I don't blame you."

    She text Mikko back saying that they couldn't make the party but appreated the invite, then tucked her phone away. She returned to her spot laying on Gabe's chest, her arms wrapped around him. She was eager to get back to the house and snuggle in the warm bed with Gabe.

    Ace looked over at Ally. "Mikko's coming to the party." He turned down their street and as she drove down the street saw some cars already parked. "Looks like we already have guest."

    He pulled up to the house and parked. "Sorry we're late." He told the guest as he got out of the car.
