5. Chapter 5

The firestation was quiet as we stepped through the door. I followed the red masked man into the kitchen and watched as he sat down on a bar stool,pulling out his phone.

"Where are you?....I thought we agreed we would do this together?....I understand she will be upset....just hurry." He hung up the phone and got up to get a glass of water, all the while I stood there awkwardly. He turned to me then," Lucy, knock on the last door right down that hall," he stopped to point at a wide hall,"and wake him up. He wont be as grumpy if you do it."

I nodded. I wasnt exactly sure who I was waking up, but I had a pretty good idea. I gradually walked down the hall and made it to the end. I turned to my left and then my right. Two doors? He never said there would be two doors. I quickly lunged for the door handle on the left. The dusty smell of an old janitors room filled my nose. Well, that clearly isnt his room. I shut the door and opened the one on the right. The room was large with a cluttered desk shoved against a window, which had closed blinds blocking the hot rays of sunshine from coming in, and a king sized bed with a lightly snoring body inside it that was on another wall. I took small steps towards the sleeping figure and sat down on the edge of the bed.

As creepy as it is, I watched him sleep for a minute or two, okay maybe it was five. I breathed in every detail I could see, which wasnt much sense all that was showing was part of the back of his head. I then realized he didnt have his mask on. Putting a hand over my mouth to stop an excited squeal from coming out, I slowly inched the covers down.I cant belive the red masked man didn't think of this. His snoring had stopped and all you could hear was quiet breathing. I could see the tip of his ear now and I gently moved father on the bed. But, unforunately for me, the bed squeakd and the blue masked man jumped. Quickly getting of his bed, I tripped on what I assumed was a dirty t-shirt and fell hard on to the wooded floor.

"Lucy? What are you doing in here?" Blue masked man was now standing on the other side of his bed with his stupid little mask on.

"Umm, I was sent to come get you. Red thought it would be better if I waked you up." A small smile appeared on my face as I congradulated myself for the new nicknames I had come up with.

"Yeah, I geuss that was kind of smart. Uh, sorry for being a sleep. I ment to just take a small nap, but I geuss that didnt happen." He made his way over to my side and helped me up.

"It's okay. I get it. You're a crime fighting hero at night, you must get tired."

He chuckled as we made our way out his door. " A hero? I like that. Is that how you see me as?"

I shrugged," Well you could use a cape or maybe a better name, but yeah, I geuss I kinda do. But don't let that get to your head. Im positive batman could kick your butt any day."

"I will have to agree with you on that one. " He laughed, rubbing his hands together," Lucy, you are most positivly different then any other girl I have ever met.." We walked into the kitchen.

I smiled, secretly hoping he ment that in a good way. That has to be like the third time he has said I was different. Should I be worried?

Green was now here and I assumed that he was who Red had called earlier. "Well hey there, Lucy, it's been a while."

"Sure has, Green." I leaned on the counter trying to not feel awkward again.

His eyebrows puzzled, "Green?"

"Yeah, I mean sense you guys wont tell me your real names I settled with just saying the color of your mask. Brilliant, I know." I pushed a fallen hair behind my ear.

A playful frown appeared on his lips," Why cant I have a cool name, like Death Fist or The King?" He whinned.

"The King? Really? Wow,"I laughed," someone is conceited."

He shook his head chuckling lightly.

Red made his way into the living room and Blue took a hold of my arm and we followed pursuit, Green trailing behind us.

I sat next to the blue masked man, a little closer than I had before, and noticed how all their faces changed. No longer did Green have a small smirk on his face,or Red have a sad frown, and, to my discomfort, Blue masked man wasn't smiling that silly grin of his. They showed a face that clearly said: "Let's get down to business." I gulped.

"Lucy," Blue started," I know you must think it was foolish of me when I told you our little secret." I pushed back the erge to roll my eyes at the 'little' part and nodded my head.

"I did it for a reason. At first I wasn't on board with it because I wasn't sure if we could trust you with this information or if you could even handled it, but somebody told me all about you and I gave in." Blue was sitting straight up on the coach, his whole body facing me.

"Wait, somebody told you about me?" I asked, unable to grasp that a person I know shared a friendship with the three masked men.

He nodded," Yes, maybe I should start from the beginning."

Agreeing, I waited for him to begin. " When we first met you at Sally's, the guys and I were wating for Eddie-"

I interrupted him,"Who's Eddie?"

Green spoke up, "Eddie Morts. He is the leader of the gang. The one we have been after. Is this making any sense." He said, stretching every sentence like he was talking to a thee year old. I glared at him. "It makes sense." I turned back to Blue, ignoring the chuckles from Green,"Continue."

It was Red that started though, "That night is when we realized how dangerous Eddie has become. His gang is beginning to grow and as much as we hate to admit it, we need help."  

I nodded my head, "Okay, I see. So you want me to help you guys?"

All three men gave me a blank stare.

"You do realize how crazy that is, right? That doesn't even make sense! How could I possible be any help in this situation?!"

"Lucy, we just need you to do some snooping. "Blue stared, "It won't be dangerous, I promise. I wouldn't let you get hurt."

I try to ignore the fact that he cared about my safety, because I knew if I didn't, I would over think things and end up with a head ache, and instead I agreed.

The men seem to be happy with how easily I gave in, but before they could say anymore, I spoke up. "I will only help if I know who you all are."

Blue laughed at this," Lucy, I'll compromise with you." I waited for him to continue. " I will give you a hint."

I sat up straiter, eager to here. "One of us is very close to you. You've seen him around school."

I began to think. I thought about all the guys I know, which wasn't many, and then thought about the masked men's personalities. I came to the conclusion that I may never know who they are. Although, I should really be worrying about other things. I just got involved in a plan of stopping a gang. Me! Of all people, I, Lucy Reese, is finally getting something interesting in her life.

A hand shaking my knee brings me away from thoughts. I look up to see Blue smiling down at me. "I herd you need a ride home."

"Well, a ride would be nice. I'm not much of a walker ."

" Are you a lazy one, Miss Reese?" He laughed.

"It depends on the day." I was ushered out of the living room, muttering goodbyes to the other men.

To my surprise, and pleasure, the blue masked man opened his car door for me. Despite my mind telling me to play it cool, I still blushed. What can I say? I don't get a lot of male attention. His car was older, a dark red, like blood. A pleasant scent was wafted into my nose and reminded me of of a cinnamon roll. I laughed to myself at that. Of course , the one guy I'm interested in has a car that smells like a cinnamon roll. It's perfect because it's weird and weird is what I am. I stopped my ramble of his car scent and backed my thoughts up. Was I interested in him? Well of course I was! He is mysterious, charming, humorous, and even though I've never seen his full face, he still looks attractive. But, this was silly. I don't know him. I don't know his name. I don't know his past. I don't even know his eye color! I'm just over thinking things. In a few months this will all be in the past and I can I just forget about it. Hopefully.

"Lucy, you are being quiet. Care to tell me what you are thinking?" 

Well, I would rather not. I pushed back my current thoughts and decided to ask a question myself.

"How old are you?"

He smiled at this, clearly amused by my subject change. " I'm almost 21."

" Oh, so I am a loud to know your age? I must say, I wasn't sure you would answer."

I small chuckle escaped his mouth, "I don't have to keep everything from you now. You will be working with me."

I still couldn't believe that. Who ever told them about me must know me pretty well. I'm still surprised they would even let somebody else, especially a high schooler, join them. That seemed pretty reckless to me, but I won't complain. This is what I need. A bubble of excitement coursed through me.

I nodded to him, " Does this mean I can ask you more questions?"

"Yes and I will answer most of them." He still held a smile and I kinda liked the fact he always looked happy, or at least content.

" How did you become...what ever you are?"

He glanced at me from the drivers side. We had already passed my car, I guessed, sense we were back in town.

" I can't answer that one, not yet."

Sighing, I tried again. " Alright, how did you meet the other men?"

He shook his head," I'm afraid I can't tell you that one either."

" Why don't you just tell me what I can know about you?" I questioned, hopefully not sounding as exasperated as I really was.

Again he gave a short laugh, " You can know the basics. Like my favorite color, type of music I listen to, how many siblings. Stuff like that."

That wasn't exactly the juicy information I was looking for, but nonetheless, I was still curious to know. " So, What are they?"

" My favorite color is obviously blue," he gave me a smirk, " I don't listen to music much, but when I do it's really whatever I feel like and I have a brother."

I took this in, staring at him. " What's your brothers name?"

" Donovan, but we call him Doni."

I nodded, " How come you don't listen to music often?

He shrugged, " I just never have. I don't know why."

" Why aren't you in college?"

" You know, you should become an interrogator. I thank you would be excellent at that." His lips were curved up letting me know he was joking.

I gave a short laugh. " I'm sorry, I'm just curious."

" Its okay, I'll try not to mind." He gave me another wink.

I waited for him to answer my earlier question, but he said nothing.

"Well? Why aren't you in college?"

He softly chuckled before parking his car. I looked around to find that I was home. Baffled by how he knew my address, I turned back to see that he was already out of the car. Holding my door open, yet again, was the blue masked man. I stepped out and crossed my arms over my chest.

Blue stepped closer to me, pulling my arms away, holding them at the wrist. "Lucy,"he started slowly," somethings you will just have to figure out over time." He released me and got back into his car and, with a quick wave, was driving down the street.

I was exhausted. I put aside everything and walked the short path up to my house. I didn't know what was about to happen in the near future,but I did know I would be facing things I never have before. I managed to sneak past my parents and made it safely to my room. I plummeted on to my bed, but before I could be carried away to a peaceful sleep, Scarlett called.

"Lucy, he canceled!"

I muffled a yawn. " Scar, I'm telling you, he is in a gang."

"No he isn't!"

"Then what is it?"

Silence was all I herd. "Scarlett, just ask him." I softened my voice.

"I've tried!"

"Try again!"

A soft sigh was herd from the other end of the phone. "Alright, I guess I could."

With a few more words of encouragement, I said goodnight. I got ready for bed, keeping my thoughts focused on anything, but the masked men and warmed myself with my comforter.
