I've been running all my life. Away from the horrid memories of the sacrifices my mother made to protect me, and to protect my name from this evil world we live in...
But everything's changed...
I've recently found out my mother was murdered by a psychopath; choosing the wrong pill in a game of chance that would give away her secret. That gave away my name.
That cost her her life...
I heard a man named Sherlock Holmes had solved my mother's case along with others who had fallen of the same fate. I must find him so I can warn him: for he does not know what he has gotten himself into...


14. Unexpected Targets

I start walking from St. Barts to look around central London. I couldn't remember exactly where Mycroft's building was, but I did remember what it looked like. When I passed by Trafalgar Square, however, I was put off by a bit of a...distraction.


I swivel my head to see PJ with two other people I had never seen before.

PJ jogs over to me and pecks my cheek. I hope that this won't take long.

"Rachel, I want you to meet some friends of mine." He wraps his arm around my shoulder and guides me towards the two strangers.

"Rachel, this is Dan and Chris." They both smile and wave as we get closer towards them.

"So, you're the girl PJ's been making love to?" Chris says mockingly. I blush hard.

"Aw, c'mon Chris, don't say that." PJ says in reaction to my blushing. "Hey, where's Phil?"

Dan and Chris point toward the large lion statues. We look over to see a young man just a few years older than me, wearing a t-shirt with a lion's face on it, sitting on top of one of the lion statues. He waves. I wave back to be polite, but I didn't really know how to react...

"He really likes lions." Dan explains. We all watch as Phil gets gradually off the lion and jogs over towards us.

"Hello!" Phil said with a smile on his face. He looked a lot more like Dan up close; they both had the emo-fringe and crazy style in t-shirts (Dan had a galaxy shirt with a llama on it). The only real differences were they're eyes and shape of face; Phil had blue, almost crystal like eyes and a thin-ish face, while Dan had brown ones close enough to the color of milk chocolate and a slightly pudgier structure.

Chris pushes some dark hair out of his dark brown eyes and turns towards Phil. "This is the girl PJ's been telling us about..." He winks at Phil. PJ justs rolls his eyes.

"Oh! You're Rachel!" Phil says with a happy grin. "I'm Phil! I'm Dan's flatmate, and Peej has told us quite a lot about you!"

"A lot?" Dan says in a sassy tone of voice. "Phil. He NEVER stops talking about her. I mean, no offense," He looks at me, then back at Phil, "But frankly, I'm glad to finally meet her so PJ will finally SHUT UP about her." I look over at PJ, but at the moment he was blushing harshly and looking at the ground like he was entranced by it. I start to laugh a little bit.

Chris pats PJ on the back. "It's okay, PJ. No need to be emmbarassed." He was smiling like a little school girl. I take PJ's hand in mine.

"C'mon PJ. Their just joking about." I say to reassure him.

"WOW! She talks too!" Chris says sarcastically as he points his arms at me in a show-biz like way. "Man, PJ, you got the complete package!" We all start laughing; even PJ lets out a little embarrased chuckle. He finally looks up and punches Chris in the arm slightly.

Pretty soon, I forget what I even came here for.

The guys asked a lot of questions, and I answered them in the best way I could.

"How old are you?"

"Do you have a job?"

"Do you watch any anime?"

The only questions I didn't answer were the ones about my family. I was nervous about telling them what I had been through, and I could tell PJ was feeling the same way.

As we were all wanderiong around the square aimlessly, Phil stops and looks up for a minute. He waves as if someone was there, but there wasn't.

"Phil?" I ask. "What on earth are you doing?"

Phil turns to me and smiles. "I'm waving at the security camera!"

I freeze.

When I look up, sure enough, there was a security cam watching us.

Phil and I watch as the camera slowly turns towards me.

Phil is still smiling. "It seems the camera fancys you, Rachel." Phil's smile disappears when he looks at my face. He looks at me with deep concern.

"Are you alright Rachel?" I don't move, as if a T-Rex was right in front of me. "Rachel?"

My phone buzzes.
