I slowly opened my eyes and found myself facing the lamp again. I was kind of dizzy so I closed my eyes and held on my head for a moment. What happened exactly? It's very weird. I opened my eyes again and felt fine.
"Great, now you're awake." I heard Klein's voice spoke beside me.
I looked beside and saw him sitting on the chair beside me. "Oh." I said as I sat up. But a sudden painful struck on my rib prevented me so.
"Ho, take it easy there." Klein said as he supported me to lay back on my bed.
"Why are you here?" I asked. Why is he really here? Isn't he supposed to be a cold captain who ignores me? But what's he doing here? What I last remembered was that, Brandon and I are in a middle of a noisy gun fight. Wait, gun fight... "Where's Brandon? Is he okay?" I asked.
"Yeah, his fine now. For us pirates, scratch on the leg is nothing but a... scratch." Klein responded. Now he's joking? Was he struck bu humor or something? Or did he got bumped on the head by a giant rock until he turned as human with nonsense?
"What happened?" I asked him.
The exchange of trigger started to shout out of the city, Cia got hit to her rib as she fell on the ground. Klein jumped down hiding on every walls while Brandon carried her while she's unconsciously sleeping with the help of Nalla's magic to make shield. The people started running until the road was deserted.
The fight didn't stopped yet. Axe's troops made it more wild. They pulled the trigger everywhere wasting every single bullet that scratches the walls and hits the stalls around them.
Klein on the other hand, focused his gun to each head and struck one of them. He jumped to another roof without anyone's notice then pulled another trigger again hitting one of them. Then he hopped down right through another man kicking him to his face and fell. He fought until all of them are down.
After the fight, he spared a man and asked questions. The man gave him a piece of paper. As Klein looked at it, he saw Cia's picture on it and 5,000,000,000 as the amount that they are to give when she was turned over.
The crew went back to the ship and sailed away to escape Axe's anger, tending the girl, while Brandon's leg was cut and changed it to an artificial metal.

"Now you understand?" Klein asked as he gave his explanation.
"Are you going to turn me back?" I asked him.
Klein looked at me then crossed his arms leaning his full weight on the ship. "Of course not. We're not that stupid to do such a thing." he said.
"Why thought?" I asked puzzled.
"We're accused as your kidnappers. You should be thankful that I'm still keeping you alive at my custody amidst the problem that you've given me." Klein straightened.
I smiled at him. "Thank you!" I said facing him...
