Alik nodded his head. From the sound of this kid she was going to be interesting. "So let me guess. She is the one family member that you actually care for?"

"She's the one that cried when I left. Because of me she's missing a limb, chased after the white van I was in and was struck by a car." Mace stated in a cold tone, but it was still somewhat soft at the mention of her. "And those little pets she killed were always asking for me to come home."

Alik smiled softly at him. "Well then lets make those little wishes come true. Bring her big brother back. So all those wishes won't be in vain."

Mace smiled a little and gave a faint laugh, "Thanks - it means more than you think." He muttered over to the other while he kept his gaze facing the bunk.

"I like to keep my promises. You will see her again. I will personally make sure of it. You will probable be staying at my old house with me considering it has more than enough rooms. So no need to worry about that. If you want your sister doesn't have to know anything about the mafia. It's up to you."

"She won't mind, let her know everything - it won't matter. She's not innocent either way." Mace said with a soft sigh before he gave a faint yawn, stretching like a cat.

"Good. Even if she was innocent it probably wouldn't stay that way for long." Glancing over at Mace Alik raised an eyebrow. "You seem tired. Maybe you should sleep."

Alik turned over and faced the wall. But he didn't fall asleep. He just laid there thinking his mind racing. Some nights he found that he just couldn't sleep. Just sat all night thinking. That's what he did think and think. Never seemed to stop. It helped some times other times it just kept him awake.

A lady in black with black glasses over her eyes stood outside of the prison walls, in a corner where they would be breaking in, she was tall and had her blonde hair pulled back in a pony tail. Her voice was strict too, "Now, this wall - knock it down. They're on the third and fourth level, across from one another. Two on the center of this wall, and two on the parallel wall."

Another girl with pitch black hair tied back tightly into a bun ran up to the lady in black. Her black eyes shining brightly. "Everything is set up and ready. Just waiting for the command." She was dressed in all black as well. Standing next to the other lady her chin only came up to her shoulders. Being small made it easier for her to slip in undetected when she needed to.

Nodding her head, the lady snapped her fingers - giving the signal to the other two. Which of whom was a tall and broad male with a control in his hand that would set off a bomb that would blow the wall up and allow them access. "Get the guns, now! everyone brace yourselves!"

The girl quickly pulled out her guns and turned to look at the other male. He was standing next to the one with the button. He wasn't as big as the other male. More lean and a little shorter but still had some muscle. It looked as if he to had pulled out his guns. Turning her attention back to the wall she braced herself. Getting ready to break in. The bomb was costume made for this. Taking a deep breath she waited.

{What kind?}

The button was clicked and the wall ticked for five seconds before it blew up into shards. Dymitry jolted at the sudden explosion, but Mace just covered his head with a pillow to silence out the noise so he could sleep longer. On the other hand, guards began to send off the sirens and get the dogs.

{ You know those shirts with the skull cut outs on the backs of the tank tops? I have one of those shirts now, I convinced her to buy several more, but they're hard to describe. But one of them I couldn't get off and nearly fell down the stairs to ask for help.}

Alik sat up grinning at the sound of the explosion. Getting up he walked over to Mace. Rolling his eyes down at him he ripped the pillow away. "Come on get your ass up. Our ride is here." Kicking the bed to make sure he was getting up he walked over to the cell door. Whistling loudly he to get Dymitry and Ace's attention he smirked. "Looks like its time. Get ready. Let the fun begin!~" Ace sat up in bed startled at the loud noise. "What the hell..." Getting up he walked over to the door. Looking out it his eyes widened slightly. The whole wall was down.

{You fall down the stairs a lot. Sounds awesome~}

Mace groaned but got up and stood up and frowned a little before he looked around the room and watched as the blonde lady began to unlock their cell, pulling it open and stepping out of the way before giving a nod to the two. Now they just had to get Dymitry and Ace - though the other white haired male didn't seem too excited to get up and go.

Alik walked over to his bed. Bending down he pulled out the jar that had a heart in it. Grinning he practically pet the jar leaving the cell. Holding it up he grinned wickedly at the blonde. "Isn't it pretty~" His voice was like a cats purr as he held up the jar. With out waiting for a response he shoved the jar into her arms. "Come on. No time to waste." He quickly made his way up to Dymitry and Ace's cell.

"Yes, it's lovely." She stated before grabbing Mace and pulling him to her chest - whom was surprised and trying to pull away. But she held on and jumped over the edge and into the other's arms and taken off to the car. Dymitry frowned a bit more and rubbed the back of his head for a moment, did he really want to go on with this?

Alik pulled open the cell door and waved them out. Ace quickly walked out and looked over the railing. How the fuck was he suppose to jump from here all the way down there? Shaking his head he got ready to jump. He had fallen from higher places and landed on his feet. Swinging over the edge he jumped down to the next level and continued to do this until he got to the car waiting there. Alik looked at Dymitry waiting. "Come on we need to go."

Dymitry frowned before brushing back his bangs and giving a faint nod, even if he didn't want to go, e'd still go if it meant he could get the hell out of this place. Pursing his lips he stepped over and towards the railing's edge to see people standing below - shooting guards away and holding out their arms to catch them.

Alik glanced at Dymitry before going towards the edge. Looking down he grinned. Time to get out of this hell hole. Waiting for Dymitry to jump he let his eyes wander over the prison. Many of the other prisoners were shouting and screaming at them. They wanted to get out as well but Alik really didn't care what they wanted. Without a second thought he jumped over the railing and was caught. Being set on his feet he shoved Ace and Dymitry into the car before getting in himself.

Dymitry leaped over and fell backwards, he was caught like a trust-fall before being set to his feet. His stomach flipped while he stood up and glanced around, being rushed to the car wasn't that fun, but he still entered and sat down while the blonde readied a bomb to destroy the prison.

Alik casually say in the car. Not caring that the prison was about to be blown to pieces along with everyone inside. Of course he had a feeling a few other prisoners had broken out as well. Turning to the blonde he took the jar and quickly put it under the seat. Opening the car door the black haired girl quickly got in a car along with the other two males. It was time to leave.

The blonde looked to the others before starting the car up and driving off and away - they had a plane to catch in a few minutes. She turned on the radio to an old station that Alik preferred and continued to drive with a straight face before looking to the other lady. "Set it off now."

The girl nodded and pressed the button that would blow up the prison. Five seconds went by before the explosion happened. Once the explosion was over was nothing left of the prison. Alik sat and hummed along with the radio. It had been awhile since he had listened to the radio. "So how has everything been since I was gone? I want details."

The blonde looked back and over to Alik before she looked forwards and continued to drive with a soft sigh before thinking of what to say. "Nothing much has happened, smaller mafias and gangs have moved in and are trying to intrude on our land, but they've been shoved back and put in their place."

Alik nodded looking out the window. "Good. I have a promise to keep to Mace. He has a little sister that I must go and get. Once we are in Russia I want a meeting. Everyone must attend no excuses." Turning to Mace he paused. "If you remember I need the address. So I know where to go."

Mace nodded his head and took a slip of paper and a pen from one of the bigger men, writing down the address he used to live at and where his sibling was staying with his parents. He sighed a bit and handed the slip of paper over to the other, sitting with his legs crossed on the ground - he didn't want to sit on the seat.

Alik took the piece of paper and looked at it. Slipping it into his pocket he sat back in the seat. Once in Russia he would then go and get the little girl. She sounded like an interesting child. Killed her pets stuffed them and then made a wish on them. The same wish over and over again. To bring her big brother home. Interesting indeed. "What is her name?"

"Kimii." Mace stated with a small hum, hands on his ankles as he rocked back and fourth, looking up at the others with a calm look on his face, "If I'm correct it's her leg that's gone?" He muttered out with his head tilted, but gave a slight shrug towards his own answered question.

{ Because I'm too lazy to look back, it's her leg.}

Alik nodded his head. It would make things easier knowing her name. Once he got there he would have to get to her without the parents around. Probable have to convince her to trust him. Sighing he looked out the window. Watching as everything went by. First he would go and get the little girl. Second he would have that meeting. It would help him determine who was still loyal and who wasn't.

{It was her arm....but ok}

Mace laughed lightly, "Just tell her you have a dead bunny and she'll bound right after you." It was funny how she worked, begging him to go in the woods with her and look for dead animals that rot on the ground. He brushed back his hair before looking to Dymitry - whom was pressed firmly against the window seat he was at. \

Alik nodded turning his head slightly. He could see their plane up ahead. Almost there. Glancing from the corner of his eye he stated at Dymitry. Before anyone could notice him staring he quickly looked away. Feeling the car stop he sat up a little more.

{Hehe~
Ha! That's awesome~}

Alik looked around and then pulled out the paper. He was standing at. The edge of the street under a tree. Trying to go unseen. It wouldn't do him well if anyone saw him. His eyes scanned the paper. Rereading the address to make sure he was at the right place. The house was small but not extremely. Almost all the houses looked the same with only a few small differences. There was a car sitting in the drive way. So that meant the parents were home. Seeing something move behind the house he turned to look. A little girl was leaving the house going to the woods behind it. Pausing for a moment he then began to follow her silently entering the woods.

{The train had a 45 minute delay, I won't be home until around four or five today... maybe early if they keep up with the speed. }

The one armed girl wandered into the wooded area, she had a wrap around it to prevent the healing wound to get infected or harmed in any way. She had grown used to having to live without her arm, it was painful though, to feel the phantom arm every now and again and remember faint touches from others. It always made her sad, but she got over it, she could live without her shoulder down.
