2. Chapter 2

All day I have herd about the break in at Sally's last night. It was in this mornings paper, on the radio in the afternoon, and right now on the 6 o'clock news. Im sitting in my recliner, watching the newsmen talk about the crooks who were tied up in the parking lot. He says that the police think they are part of a gang, which is very possible because we have all kinds of gangs here. Thats pretty much all you can do around here is join a gang. None of the news mentioned the masked men. They weren't even cought on tape. The "gang" members said they never even seen the faces of whoever caught them. Who are these guys?

Scarlett had left a hour ago to get ready for her date and my parents were out with some friends. So, I was home, alone, with every light on in the house. I wasn't sure if the blue masked man would actually come find me. A part of me was intrigued by the idea of seeing him again, another part of me was praying he would just forget. Seeing as the news had now changed to sports, I decided it would be best to take a shower.

I got out of the shower right as I could hear my cell phone ringing. I knew it couldnt be Scarlett because she said she would call me around 10 o'clock and I know I wasnt in the shower that long. I picked my cell up and the caller ID read my mom.

"Hey mom."

"Oh thank goodness you are okay!"

"yea, why wouldnt I be?" I squized the towl tighter around my chest.

"There was gunshots around our street. I just herd it on the radio. We are on our my way home now." Her voice was frantic.

"Dont let me ruin your night, I didnt even hear anything, I will be fine."

"No, we are coming. They think it was more members from that gang."

"I doubt it was a gang, mom. I bet it was Mrs.Janice.What if Mr.Chesters cat got in her garden again and she decided to kill that sucker!" I knew the gun wasnt aimed at the poor cat, but I really wanted to believe other wise.

"Lucy, this is serious. Something is going on in this town and I have a feeling it is not gonna get better any time soon. We are about 10 minutes away. I love you."

I sighed. "love you,too."

I went to my room and changed into my pajamas. Afterwards, I turned the TV on in my room and flipped it to the news. Unfortunately, it was now talking about the weather. My thoughts were all focused on what the gunshot was really for. Maybe there is something bad happening in this town. That would explain the masked men just showing up out of nowhere. I wounder if I know any of them. Their voices didnt sound familiar. Although, I dont talk to many guys. Thats Scarletts job. My thoughts were interupted when my phone went off again. This time it was...Scarlett? Its only 8:40.

"Hello?"

"He left."

"What?"

"Carter, he left me."

"Seriously? Why!?"

"He got a phone call and said it was important. When he came back, he said he had to go and then apoligized.He told me he would call me tomorrow."

"He didnt even tell you where he was going?"

"No, but I'm sure he will tell me tomorrow."

"Yea, I bet he will. How did the rest of the date go?"

"It was great! It was really easy to talk to him. He took me to this little diner in the next town over and they had the best desert." I spent the next hour and a half talking with Scarlett about Carter and all the amazing things he did tonight before he left. After ending the call, I stared out my window. Would I ever know who the masked men are, better yet what they are doing in this town. I sighed out of frustraion and got up to make sure my window was locked. I didnt want the blue masked man to pull an Edward Cullen on me. I climbed in bed and aloud my thoughts be over swept with dreams.

***********************************************************************************************************

The entire week I kept waiting for the masked man to come out and randomly pay me a visit, but he didnt. Everywhere I went I exspected him to be there. There had been two more break ins, one at the gas station and the other at Big Joe's Icecream Parlor. As always they found the "gang" members, but had no idea who caught them. This must be a big gang.

Right now, Im driving to my house, blaring my music. As soon as I get into my drive way I receive a text. I picked my phone up, and read the message from the unknown number.

*Meet me at the fire station, Mayberry St. 7 o' clock*

My heart stopped. Was it him? I seriously didnt exspect him to text, how did he get my number anyways? Not only that, but there wasnt even a fire station on Mayberry. Maybe its a wrong number. Should I reply? It couldnt hurt.

*I think you have the wrong number.*

I got out of my car and ran into my house. I shut and locked the door and climbed the stairs to my room. I fell backwards on my bed right as I got another text.

*I know this is you, Lucy.* I gasped. It was the masked man. I couldn't help the excitment that boiled up in me. Gosh, I think im losing it.

* Im not saying I am Lucy, but if I was, what would happen if I didnt show up tonight?*

Yes, I am a tad bit curious, but didnt curiousity kill the cat? Maybe it would best if I stayed away from the three men. A thought hit me,a disturbing thought, what if he wanted to meet me to kill me. To make sure I would never tell anyone about them, to make sure I kept their secret safe! Okay, so maybe I was being a little over dramatic, but it could happen.

*Just meet me there and we wont have to worry about that.*

This guy is good. * Are you gonna kill me?* I had to ask, I mean it never hursts to be cautious, right?

*Im not gonna kill you or harm you in anyway, but if I was, do you seriously think I would tell you?*

Well, someone is a smart butt! I hit reply. *Whatever, I'll be there.* With that being said, I started thinking of ways I could get out of the house. I hated lieing, a speacially to my parents. Maybe I could say I was gonna hang out with Scarlett, She is out on another date with Carter, but im sure she wouldnt mind if I used her as an accuse.

Three hours later, Im freaking out with anticipation. My parents had just walked through the door and I was incredible nervous.

"Lucy, can you come down stairs?"

I walked down stairs to be met with four faces.

"Lucy, this is Mr. Robert and Mrs. Nancy, they are our new neighbors. We invited them to dinner." My mom gave me a sweet smile.

"It's nice to meet you." I held out my hand and both of them shook it.

"Umm, Mom, I am going to Scarlett's in a little while."

"You are always with Scarlett, why dont you stay home tonight?" This just got harder.

"Well, This is important."

"Alright,Fine, be back by 9."

"9:30?"

"I geuss."

As the next hour passed, I stayed up in my room youtubing karate moves. I felt like I should atleast be able to act like I can kick butt. Reading the clock, it was 6:40. I put on my shoes, grabbed a light jacket, and booked it down the stairs. I stopped in the living room, where everyone was sitting and talking.

"Im gonna head out."

"Alright, love you."

"Love you,too."

I turned to the new neighbors. "It was nice meeting you guys." I then husseled to my car.

It took about 15 minutes to get to the firestation. I have lived here my intire life and ive never seen this place before. I dont think I've even been down this street. I had to use my GPS. The place was empty and old looking. Infact the whole street was deserted. Every house looked creepy and haunted. And he wants me to believe he wont kill me? I think not. No one would here my screams. They could easily bury my body in one of the back yards. Before my mind could go into detail of my death, I saw a figure of a person standing in front of the firestation. My mouth went dry and my hands started to sweat. I took hold the handle of my car and stepped out.

He took a few steps towards me and I could tell he was wearing his mask and black suit. I waited for him to say something, but he didnt. Gosh, this guy is unbelieveable. I shifted my feet and fittled with my fingers. The quietness between us was getting annoying.

"Are you gonna explain?" I asked, my voice was shaky. Geez Lucy, man up! Isnt the number one rule 'show no fear'?

" You're right, im sorry, follow me." He turned and started walking to the front door of the firestation. I was hesitant to follow, but decided it would be best to go with him. This place creeps me out.

The inside of the old building was the complete oppisite of the out side. The floors were a pretty wooden color and the walls had a dark grey on them. The intire place looked like it was ment for a man. It looked almost like a house on the bottom floor. There was a kitchen, a living room, even a bathroom. The masked man was climbing metal stairs and I hurried to catch up with him. By the time I was on the second floor,the masked man was sitting on a small couch. Looking around the room, I saw there was two more chairs, a bean bag chair,and a flat screen TV. But what caught my attention the most was the mulitple computers and monitor systems covering one whole wall. I sat down on the coach farthest away from him.

He was looking at me again, like he was studying me. " There is something different about you,Lucy." Wow, his voice just gave me chills. The good chills.

" Well, there is certainly something different about you and how do you even know my name?" I muttered. He chuckled.

"I did my research."

He was silent for a moment then began. "What all did you hear that night?"

"Well," I started " You all were talking about someone breaking into Sallys and you were worried he would destroy the whole town."

" Good, so thats all you know?"

I blinked. "Um,yea."

He gave a sigh of relief. "Thats great. Looks like we are done here."

I couldn' t believe what he just said. "What? You havent told me anything!"

"Well, I dont need to. You dont know what is going on so its all good."

I stood up quickly, with one hand on my left hip and my right hand was pointing directly at him." I cant believe this! I spent all week woundering what in the world is going on in this town and im not leaving here in till you tell me!" I stomped my foot at the end.

He smiled. " You're cute."

My mouth couldnt form words, so instead it just opened and closed. I hadnt exspected that.

"Its not safe for you to know." You could hear the seriousness in his voice now.

"Why? Im not going to tell anybody." I was suprised how my voice was so natural, when a minute ago I thought my throat became a monster and ate my vocal cords.

"It just is."

I huffed. " You have all ready brought me into this. Why not explain it to me? Or atleast tell me some of it."

He pursed his lips, thinking. " Fine, but this has to be kept a secret."

I was suprised he was actually going to tell me, I mean he did just meet me. This seems like a big deal and he already trust me? I wasnt going to question him right now. I hadnt planned on telling anyone anyways. "I promise."

" The man we were talking about is very dangerous. A few years back he stole something from a good freind of mine. It took us a few months to find were he took off to, but we found him and got back what we wanted. We hid it and he thinks it is here. That is why he is breaking into every building in this town."

My eyes widened, "Well,Is it here?"

He was hesitant for moment. "Yes."

"So, what is gonna happen?" I asked, a little afraid of the answer.

" I really dont know." He sounded upset by that. I exspected him to say more, but ofcouse he said no further.

"So, thats it? Thats all your going to tell me? Really? I cant even know how you became what you are?"

His lips turned up a little. I now realised I could barely see his eyes because of the maske. "Sense I've told you this, we will be seeing a lot of eachother. You'll be like my personal assistant." He said, ignoring my question.

"Assistant? You think leaking this personal information to me means I do what ever you want?"

He drummed his fingers on the side of the couch and said in a casual voice,"Of course."

I huffed. "Fine, but I want all my questions answered."

He simply said, "No." with a smile on his tan face.

" Can I at least know your name?" I whispered. A silly smile presenting it self on my face as well.

"Im afraid not."

My smile instantly vanished and was replaced with a frown, but before I could respond there was beeping from the computers. He jumped off the couch and looked at one of the screens.

"I have to go. Go home and dont be out at night by yourself."

He took my hand and pulled me out of the house . He opened my door to my car, which I reluctantly got into. Before I started my car, I called out to him, he had his cell phone in his hands ready to call someone, " Im gonna figure out who you are."

He gave me a throaty chuckle and yelled back, "I will see you soon, real soon."

I sighed,shutting my door and pulled out of the driveway. A few minutes later my phone rang. Scarlett.

"Sup Scar?"

"He left me, AGAIN!"

"Really? Maybe its family trouble."

"He said he lives with his two brothers, who are never home." She sounded upset.

"Scarlett, im sure he has a good reason."

"Whatever, im coming over tonight."

" I can pick you up, Im all ready out."

"Alright, what were you doing?" She sounded suspious.

"Umm, you know, just driving around."

"At 8 o'clock at night?"

"Ofcourse." Gosh, I suck at this.

"Okay? See you in a little bit."

I hung up and made my way to Scarletts street. It was gonna be really hard not to tell Scarlett about what was happening and even harder not to think about the blue masked man.
