So, sudden inspiration out of nowhere. Not sure if I'll continue this-if you want it I will but no promises so that means you'll have to REVIEW if you like it!!
I don't own anything.
Chapter 1--Not Your Average Heroes
"You know, I wish people would challenge us more," Rose muttered as we crawled through the ducts of the warehouse.
"Yeah but if they challenged us then we wouldn't be able to mess with them as easily-you remember that thing we did with those security tapes a couple months ago. That was priceless," I whispered back with a grin on my face. We were breaking into this place and decided we would have a little fun with the security guards. We messed with the tapes and replaced the footage they had caught from the last couple of months with the I Love Lucy show-Rose loves them for some reason. They even mentioned that in the newspaper when they covered the break in.
"True," she said with a little laugh. "Oh. We're here," she said suddenly stopping in front of me.
"What do you see?" I asked.
She snorted. "No one's even down there," she scoffed. "Let's just get this one done, I want to go home," she said, holding her hand back so I could hand her the screw driver.
I listened as she unscrewed the vent and then crawled over it to the other side and turned to face me. "You ready Bells?" she asked.
"Yep, let's get'er done," I said, clipping the repelling cord to my belt. I slid out of the vent and slowly down towards the floor of the museum. I held up my hand and my descent stopped. "We've got beams," I muttered.
"Are they for show or the real deal?" she whispered back into the comms unit.
I squinted to get a better look at the crisscrossing beams. "Give me a second," I whispered before reaching in belt and pulling out my compact. I quickly dusted my brush and then blew the chalky dust towards the beams. Instead of staying in a solid line, the red beam broke into little bits, I could clearing see the little particles floating around it. I let out a quiet snort. "Fake as your mom's nose," I whispered as Rose laughed into the comms unit.
I dropped down, my feet going right through the beams. No sound at all. I walked casually over to the glass case, my stupid stiletto boots clicking on the marble floor as I went. "You know," I muttered, "these outfits could seriously jeopardize out cover."
"Not if we run into any male security guards," she said easily.
"Yeah but my underwear is frigging riding right up my ass," I murmured as I took out my glass cutter.
"Then don't wear underwear-that's what I do," she said.
I rolled my eyes. "Way too much information Rose," I said as I carefully popped open the glass.
"Whatever Bella, but if we're going to do these things, don't you at least want to look good doing them?" she asked.
"Yes, because I want someone to see me looking good," I said as I carefully reached in and pulled out the ancient rubies from some tomb in Egypt. They really should have better security for these-it's barely Class B.
"Hey, there are a lot of hot FBI agents out there," Rose scoffed as I walked away from the case.
I just rolled my eyes. "We can talk about your past boyfriends some other time, now let's get out of here before the Po Po arrives-I can only hold off alarms for about twenty you know," I reminded her.
"Alright, alright," she sighed. "Down or up?"
"Just come down here, I don't want to crawl around like a three year old for the next ten minutes," I muttered.
I watched as she sidled easily down the repel cord and then pulled it down with her, folding it up and attaching it to her belt. We were seriously completely decked out in what Rose likes to call our 'spy gear.'
We both wore almost identical outfits. Really tight leather pants that I absolutely hated-but were good to sneak around in; no tears, no noise, no evidence. We also both wore the previously mentioned black boots that we both held concealed weapons in-very useful obviously. We wore quarter sleeve black leather jackets that zipped all the way up to our necks if we wanted to.
And the key to our outfits: our utility belts-I seriously think Rose thinks we're super heroes or something when we're actually the exact opposite. We both have a gun, a knife, lock picks, repelling cords, and a ton of other things attached to our belts-but you can't really tell because most of it looks practically invisible.
"Back alley way?" she asked with a raised eyebrow.
"Yeah, that's closest to the car," I said, casually following her through the museum as if we didn't just steal two million dollars worth of rubies.
"Oh my God Bella, look at this," she said pointing to a case.
I sighed and walked over to where she was standing and looked in the glass case. "Ew. Isn't it that Tanya chick-the one that was charged for murder a while back but was found innocent because of lack of evidence?" I asked her.
"Yeah-well, I'm not sure. It looks like her but there's no name plate or anything," she said as we looked at the picture of a tall blonde girl with a completely fake smile on her face as she held up and undistinguishable plaque.
"Whatever, I still think that whack job was guilty," I said as we turned and headed to the side door again. "I mean, we've killed enough people to know who's a murderer and who's not," I said casually.
"I know, completely guilty," she said as she opened the door and walked outside. I closed the door behind me and took out the mini welder from my belt and fixed the lock we broke to enter the not-so-secret code to get into the building.
We turned around and began heading down the ally before we both froze in place. "Did you see that?" she whispered.
"Shadow to the right, male about six foot two," I murmured back. I heard a light crunching sound behind me and whipped around to find a tall, dark shadow looming over me.
"Hello," Rosalie said in a sweet voice and I realized that this wasn't the only guy here, Rose was talking to a guy of her own. "How are you this fine evening?" she purred.
"We need you two to come with us," someone behind me and in front of Rose said.
"Why?" I asked with raised eyebrows.
"That's what the boss wants us to do," the person in front of me said with a slight southern draw.
"And who'd this 'boss' guy?" Rosalie asked angrily. Uh-oh. This is not going to end well.
"You'll see if you come with us," the guy in front of me said.
"Yeah, I don't think that's going to happen," I said confidently.
"Well, I guess we'll have to make you," Rose's guy said.
The guy in front of my charged and I swung my leg in the air, kicking him right in the face and sending him flying backwards. I heard a gasp to my left and a small black shadow ran at me. I turned in time to catch the person's leg as they tried to kick me and twisted their foot around so they flipped and landed on the asphalt with a thud.
The first guy I kicked ran back at me and I punched him in the face after ducking a punch of his own. Then I punched him again and again until he was officially knocked out cold and laying next to the smaller figure on the ground.
I turned to see Rosalie fighting off a massive shadow while another person lay on the ground, struggling to get back up. Rose hit the figure below the belt and I took that chance to sneak around behind him and pose my knife to his throat. He froze and all movement in the ally stopped.
"Now that that's all taken care of," I said easily, "what exactly do you all want with us?"
The struggling figure finally stood up, but kept a safe distance away. "You wouldn't really hurt him, would you?" a low voice asked cautiously.
"Maybe, maybe not. It depends how fast you answer my questions," I said with a slight smirk.
"Jasper!" a female voice yelped to my left.
Rose immediately pounced and got the smallest figure in a headlock as she kicked and struggled wildly. Rosalie tsked her. "It probably would've been a better idea to keep quiet until we were unawares and then hold one of us hostage, don't you think?" she asked as the girl squirmed in her arms.
"He's fine, he's just knocked out," I told her quietly and she stopped struggling.
"Aw, come on B, you ruin all my fun," Rose whined.
I rolled my eyes. "Okay so, I'll ask again: what does this boss guy want with us?"
"We need your help," the girl said. "We're trying to recover something from this psycho bitch and your skills are needed."
"Okay, well that's not weird," Rose muttered. "And who are all of you?" she asked.
"We're bad guys turned good," the guy I was holding hostage said. "Well, kind of good," he tacked on. "We get a place to live, eat, sleep, we get money up the ass," he told us. "It's safe there and we don't have to hide."
I looked at Rose out of the corner of my eye, even in the dark I could see her curious expression. "We could always just kill'em if we had to," I said with a shrug.
She smiled at me and let go of the girl as I stepped away from the huge guy I was holding ransom. "So. Where are we going?" Rose asked them as they all stared incredulously at us.
"Uh, just follow us I guess," the big guy said.
"Don't forget Tex over there," I said, nodding towards the still unconscious guy.
The big guy turned and slung Cowboy over his shoulder. "So, do we get to see your faces at all?" Rose asked irritably as they lead us down the ally.
"You will, just not here," the low voice said.
"Watch'em like a hawk Bells," Rose muttered so quietly that the comms barely picked it up.
"No problem," I murmured back.
So, whatcha think?? Okay? Good? Bad? Do you want me to continue it?? LET ME KNOW!!
