I don't own Jimmy. But I do own Thea. HECK YES.
It had been over a week since she had been taken to B.T.S.O Headquarters and she hadn't heard anything from Thea. At first she had spent every day on her guard with all of her things packed. Then after another few days she figured that Thea must have conveniently forgotten about her.
If that was the case she had told a lot of lies for no reason. She told Mrs. Neutron that she found nothing. She told her mother that she was going back to New York and wasn't sure when she'd be back. She told Libby that she would be unable to talk for a while. None of them had taken the news very well. Mrs. Neutron had cried, her mother had screamed obscenities at her and Libby had asked her lots of questions that came uncomfortably close to the truth.
As almost on cue the doorbell rang. Cindy ran downstairs not wanting to answer thousands of questions. But her mother had obviously beaten and Thea was standing inside her house. She was wearing the exact same thing she had been when she last saw her, with her gun protruding proudly at her side. Her mother looked from Thea to Cindy then to Thea again.
"Cynthia, this young woman says she's here for you."
Oh this was just great now she had to come up with more lies! "She's a friend of Jackson's from New York," certainly her mother would buy that because she believed everyone in New York was crazy.
"Yeah," Thea replied. "I'm a friend of Jerry's."
Cindy glared at the woman who just ignored her as she chewed her gum loudly. "Jackson," she corrected.
"Whatever," Thea commented.
"Are you in some sort of trouble, Cynthia?"
"This girl has got a gun."
"She's eccentric, what can I say?" This finally got Thea's attention.
"Now if you don't mind Cynthia- we don't have a lot of time on our hands."
"I'll be right back down, Thea."
She hurried upstairs and packed her things into the duffle bag she had brought home and made sure that the little keychain was safely inside her purse. When she came back downstairs her mother and Thea were sitting awkwardly in the living room, Thea was looking at an old photo book and her mother was staring at Thea.
"Ready," she answered.
"Okay let's go then."
"See you later mom."
"This is it? No warning whatsoever? This weirdo comes in and takes you away?"
"Sorry mom, it's hard to explain." Her mom frowned skeptically. "I'll call okay?"
"Fine," she hissed.
Thea popped her gum again. That was going to get very annoying very quickly. She gave her mom a quick hug and then followed Thea out into the street. A jet black Lamborghini sat in her driveway.
"You couldn't have been a little more discreet?" Cindy hissed.
"Nah, I thought I would have a little fun with your neighbors."
"Aren't you supposed to be my role model?"
"More like trainer. Now we have a lot of work to do and not much time to do it in."
"Hey! It's not my fault you waited until the last minute to do this. Hold it, what do you mean by a lot of work to do? I am in shape."
"In shape isn't good enough. We need to train in you in fighting skills."
"I can do martial arts thank you very much."
"Martial arts won't do you much good against a gun."
"Yes. Your adversaries will have guns and they will kill you on site. This isn't child's play anymore, Cynthia."
"Cindy," she quickly shot back.
"I'll call you what I want to call you."
She glared at Thea who started the car with a roar.
"So where are we going?"
"I knew you would ask that. First we go to D.C. to headquarters where you'll train vigorously with me a few days and then we'll get going on the mission. Starting from the most recent location where Neutron was."
"Do I get to know where we are going?"
"Need to know information and I'm afraid that you just don't need to know."
This girl was being a total jerk! It made her wonder about her history with Jimmy. But Cindy decided against asking. It was an uncomfortable topic for her and it wasn't worth it.
"Hopefully you brought some pain reliever because these next few days are going to be hell. I'm going to make sure of that."
