Her shoulder length curly golden-blonde hair flapped in the wind behind her as she ran like hell. She looked behind her and saw he was catching up, it was time to lose him, time for some hardcore parkour. She leaped and grapped the nearest window sill, hauling herself up without pause and leaping for the next and the next until she reached the roof. Then she legged it over the rooftops feeling pretty pleased with herself, until she looked behind her. As it turned out her pursuer was familiar with parkour as well and was pelting it across the rooftops catching her up again. She swore and ran at her full speed until she tripped and slammed head first into the roof she was on. She rolled over to face the sky and groaned in pain. Her chaser ran straight up to her and stopped. "Think you can just run away huh bitch?" He kicked her in the stomach. "Think you can escape just like that huh?" He picked her up and slammed her head into the slate roof, she cried out in pain. " You have three days ok?" He punched her. "Three. Days. To. Pay. Or. You. Die" He punched her after each word to emphasise. As he raised his fist for the knockout punch a hand caught his wrist and threw him into the next roof with unnatural strength. The debt collector, Michael standton stood u ready to fight. But when he saw the sinister hooded figure who had thrown him he lost all of his resolve and ran as fast as he could.

The hooded figure turned to Charlie and helped her up. "Thanks" she said, although it was clear from her body language she was wary as of his motive to helping her. " What s the price of your debt?" Asked the hooded man. His voice did not seem human. "Er.... A few thousand....." He stared at her intently. " And if I told you I could pay it off for you if you did a job for me?" She paused. "..... I'd ask what the job was". He nodded. " I want you to... Steal something for me". She raised an eyebrow and slightly widened her bright blue eyes. "What do you want me to steal?" He tilted his head. " Does that mean you're interested?" She paused before nodding.. Hesitantly
