“Seriously, Vic, what the hell were you thinkin’?” Wesley asked.
Vicky sighed. “I don’t know! Nina said she’d seen her psycho mom around and then I couldn’t find you or Azuka anywhere! I just panicked! I’m sorry, Wes.”
“Silly. Don’t apologize for coming to save us. It was brave of ya.”
“Stupid as fuck. But brave.”
“Well…” She shrugged.
“Vicky.” He put his arm around her. “Please don’t do anything else dumb. Everything’s going crazy right now, and you’re the only thing that even makes sense anymore. If I lost you…”
She put both her arms around him and pulled him into a hug. “I know, Wes. But I’m not going anywhere.”
“If I lie, may I swallow a thousand needles.”
Wes laughed and raised an eyebrow. “What was that?”
“Just some weird thing Azuka taught me. It sounds better in Japanese, but I don’t speak Japanese, so yeah.”
Wesley smiled and brushed her hair out of her face. “You’re right. You’re not going anywhere, Vic. Cause I won’t let anything happen to ya. And if I lie, may I swallow two thousand needles.”
“Okay, so let me get this straight.” George lay back on his bed and bounced a baseball against the wall. “That weird Victoria Kelly girl is actually part of the group trying to stop us?”
Haru nodded. “She is. How do you know her?”
“Uh, our parents are friends. And she’s my stalker. But then, who can really blame her, right?”
Taro rolled his eyes. “She’s not your stalker.”
“Um, and you know this how?”
“I’m not like you.” Taro replied. “I am far more intelligent than you or any human will ever be, and I can tell what each one of you pathetic creatures are thinking.”
“So… you’re psychic or something?”
“No. Just superior. And I’d think even a mortal fool such as yourself would see that she’s disgustingly in love with the red-haired boy.”
“Oh, really?” George shrugged and threw the baseball at the wall again. “I thought she was just using him to try and make me jealous.”
Taro sighed contemptuously. “You really are an arrogant fool. But Mestra Isabel was right about one thing. There is darkness in your heart, and for that, you earn the smallest bit of respect from me.”
“Uh, thanks, I guess. So if you hate humans or whatever, why do you stay here and let the Mestra chick tell you what to do? I mean besides her being hot.”
“I will admit that the Mestra has a draw to her greater than any I’ve ever felt. The woman is unlike the others of your kind. She is clever for a human, and her heart is as dark as mine is.”
Kenosuke sighed, got up, and headed for the door.
“I wouldn’t leave now, amigo.” José warned. “Mestra Isabel said we all had to stay in our room until she called us out.”
“Yeah, seriously.” George agreed. “Don’t piss that chick off. She stepped on me and that shit hurt!”
“I can handle the Mestra.” Kenosuke said as he left the room. “I just need to be alone for a while.”
Taro smirked. “Aw, it seems I’ve hurt someone’s feelings.”
“Wow, that guy’s so screwed.” George said with a laugh. “So do we actually get to kill people?”
José nodded. “Aren’t newbies cute?” He said sarcastically.
“Adorable.” Taro said with an even more sarcastic tone. “Yes, we get to kill people. Lots of people. Anyone that stands in our way. And many that don’t.”
“Cool! In that case, I call Victoria and her weird boyfriend!”
José shook his head. “Sorry, but I think Mestra has special plans for them. Don’t tell her I told you, but apparently Victoria tried to break in and almost got a knife in the gut, but her little boyfriend saved her and left Mestra Isabel tied up in the dungeon. I found her there and she was furious.”
“Too bad Victoria didn’t actually get stabbed. That would have been funny. Hey, wait. You guys have a dungeon? Why am I not surprised?” George said.
Taro scoffed. “He left her alive? He didn’t even have the spine to kill her when he could have? Typical.”
“If you ask me, the kid made a big mistake leaving her alive. If there’s one thing you never do if you value your life, it’s tie up the Mestra.” José laughed. “They’re both as good as dead now. The Mestra will have a field day with those two. And that Indian bitch too. Apparently she’s working for the other side now.”
“That doesn’t surprise me one bit.” Said Taro. Then he smiled. “When Mestra takes care of her, I only hope she lets me watch. I never could stand that girl.”
“You and me both, amigo.”
George didn’t know who they were talking about, but he had more important things to think about. He had never killed anyone before, but now that he was working for this group, it seemed so doable, and surprisingly, the thought of committing murder didn’t stir up the slightest bit of guilt within him. But it wasn’t fair. He wanted to kill Victoria and her boyfriend. He’d known them much longer than this Isabel chick, which meant he was entitled to take care of them, not her. ‘Boss or not,’ he decided, ‘I’m killing them and she can get over it. After all, what’s the worst she could do?’
