Victoria Roux works for SS10, and leads a normal spy life. Just one thing. She can see the future, an ability that nobody else has. Until she bumps into a man. Can she trust him with her secrets? And can she rely on him in her time of need?


2. Surprises

-Vic's POV (unless stated)-

“Agent Roux, please come to HQ now… Please?” Nicole asked me through me ear piece. Using her “please listen to me because I’m your friend” voice. I rolled my eyes for what seemed the hundredth time. I was at work cutting Mrs Julia Mitts hair, and hoping that the reason why Nicole wanted me was not too serious.  Soon, I was on my way to the basement and made my way to HQ. One word about Nicole before you met her. She may be small, but she packs a punch! Her blonde bob jumps up and down whenever she moves, but her startling blue eyes make you feel like you in the Antarctica instead of a warm heated room.

HQ is like another floor to the shop, except it has things that if I told someone, I would have to kill them. To start with, it was all black and white. There were no exceptions. It was all black and white.  The walls were all white, then, the tables were black, the chairs were white, the computers were black and the memory sticks were white. That was the rule.

Once I was in HQ, there was someone else besides Nicole. I just couldn’t believe who it was. He turned first and then from concentration, his weather beaten face broke into a smile. His defined muscles, under neatly tanned skin, rippled as he ran towards me. His hazelnut eye matched his hair and his 5ft 6 body frame shifted on every step. It was my oldest brother, who I hadn’t seen in eleven years.

“Vic!” he ran to me and crushed the air out of me.

“Chris! What are you doing here?” I asked him, hugging him back too. It felt good to see him! There was a twinkle in his eye which told me he had done something naughty. Wait. Eye?

“Okay, guys, I’m going,” Nicole backed away. Chris nodded as I nested my head in his arms, like I did when CSS took my parents away. Finally, we broke apart. And I stared at his eye. Then at the eye patch. He grimaced.

“Yeah, that,” he said with certain bitterness. “Some idiot decided that it was a fun idea to poke my eye, lost complete sight in my eye,”

I stared at him in horror shock. How dare they? He laughed at the look on my face.

“Calm down sis!” he chuckled. Then his face turned the opposite. Suddenly, I wished that I wasn’t here in HQ. I could tell what was going to happen.

“Look Vic, we have had some- information that came through HQ, CSS have mum and Dad are working for them. We are trying to get Mum and Dad out,” he frowned at me. I frowned back at him. His brow creased, like he was trying to read my mind.

“Chris… the information you received was incorrect. Mum is working for CSS, not Dad,” I told him, softly.  I could see anger setting on his face. Of course, I was dad’s favorite and Chris and James was mum’s favorite.  It was all about favorites! And then his face turned into confusion.

“How did you know that mum and dad were at CSS?” he asked. Should have known that was coming.

“Umm… visions… you know…” I mumbled, not meeting his eye. He frowned at me again, and touched me shoulder, but I shrugged him off. I didn't really want to reveal my secret but if I couldn't trust Chris, I couldn't trust anyone. Besides, I trusted a lot of people which could be a disaster if there was a leak in SS10. I hoped that was never going to happen. But my eyes drifted past his shoulders and froze. I mentioned for him to keep quiet by put my finger to my lips making that “shh” gesture. Because there was a man behind him.

And that man screamed…
