In the Future Job we found out a little about Parkers past but it was a was a little sad that Sophie wasn´t there to help Parker to overcome the loss of her brother. So I´ll thought I´ll correct that a little and let the team help Parker to get her own leverage.

The Justice for Parker job
Paris was her favourite place to be. The people were friendly and easy to work with, the food was fabulous, the shopping opportunities were fantastic and were could you better fulfil your desire for fashion than in Paris, the number one fashion metropolis? Even the sun seemed to shine brighter here than anywhere else and made her enjoy her shopping day even more. The little café at the Eifeltower made the best coffee in whole Europe and she always relished every sip of it. The cake the waiter brought her locked absolutely delicious and just waited for her to be tasted but the ringing of her cell phone seemed to deny her that enjoyment, but only for a short while, she would make sure of that.
"What?" it probably came out a little harsher than she meant to.
"Wow, Sophie, did I interrupt you by something?" The voice on the other line made her forget about the piece of cake before her and made her drop the fork.
"Why are you calling Tara, is everyone alright? Did something happen?" Pure panic laid in the grifters voice and Tara didn't need to be one herself to notice it.
"No, everyone is okay, no one got shot, kidnapped, tortured or anything like that, so no need to worry, your little family is still running around the Christmas tree." It wasn't the sarcasm in Taras voice that caught Sophies attention but the little pause and the insecurity she heard in it. She probably wouldn't even have noticed if she didn't knew Tara so well. It seemed like she wasn't sure if she should tell Sophie something or not, like she debated with herself.
"Alright Tara, what are you trying to hide? What happened? You better tell me right now or I'll "
"Okay okay, I should have known, I'll tell you so hold your dogs back." Tara sighed and continued. "We took a guy down today, a popular medium who took the last dollar from mourning people. A really bad boy with no conscience, he used cold- and hot-reading techniques for his little ghost show, like most of them, but when Parker an Nate were in his show he used it at the little one and said some interesting things about her past. A brother who died in an accident when they were younger, Parker taught him how to ride a bike and a car hit him." Tara stopped when she heard Sophie taking a deep breath an mumbling something like 'Oh my god!' but she wasn't sure because there were suddenly a lot of noises in the background. "She ran out of the studio and when we found her she was devastated, crying at the floor of Nates apartment and trying not to break apart, it was a heartbreaking sight Sophie she looked so lost."
"How is she now?" Sophie asked worried but seemed a little rushed as well.
"After we took that bastard down a little better I think, but the damage is done Soph. I wanted to talk to her but she didn't let me in. No one gets through her and I caught Hardison how he put some tracking devices in her shoes and jacket, he's obviously worried that she would run away but I don't know if he's just overreacting because of his feelings for her." The slamming of a door made Tara stop and after hearing Sophie saying in perfect French "To the airport please." She was sure that Hardison probably wasn't overreacting.
"Make sure she doesn't run Tara, clear? I'm on my way back, just make sure she's still there when I get there."
"And how am I supposed to do that we're talking about Parker for god's sake. It's not like I can lock her in chains or a room without a window! She would be out in ten seconds."
"I know that Tara okay, but please stay with her, sit on her back till I arrive, if you need to but make sure she doesn't run!" If Sophie didn't sound so alerted Tara would've laughed at the statement but obviously her friend wasn't joking. "I'll take the first flight back and will call you as soon as I arrive, make her stay!"
"Okay, okay, I'll try to but "
"No, not trying! Do it! Parker is very sensitive, child like in some ways, she could do something very stupid if she leaves." Sophie explained.
"Aren't you a little overreacting? Sure Parker doesn't behave like most adults but she still is an adult, she knows how to deal with things. I think you pamper her to much."
"Jack the Ripper and Ludwig II were adults too, you know. I'll rather look after her now than at her funeral. You don't know her like I do Tara, believe me it's no pampering, it's knowledge."
"Maternal knowledge?" The blonde couldn't hold that back but Sophie herself had to smile a little at the comment.
"Call it whatever you want."
"Good than I'll better chain your little princess to the chair till you arrive, so hurry up mother bear."
"Do that and Tara, thanks for calling me." Sophie said thankfully.
"There's no need for that, that's what you employed me for. Until later Sophie and don't break your head to much over Parker, I'll take care of her until you arrive."
