Rei glared at them some more before turning and walking into her room. Once inside she took off what she was wearing and pulled on a pair of black yoga pants and a white button up ¾ sleeved shirt. She put on black clogs and sat on her bed for a moment. She didn't feel like going through the boys in order to get to her car, which had arrived today. She didn't want to have to climb out the window either. She made up her mind and changed her shoes, so that she was wearing black sneakers instead. She stood and stared at the door for a moment. She knew they were the pilots. Everyone had to know that. She wasn't stupid. She grabbed a slip of paper and wrote a quick note on it.

The boys knocked on her door again and she turned on her radio, loudly. She put oil on the window so that it wouldn't squeak and opened it. She climbed onto the slim ledge outside her window and looked at the tree that was about seven feet away. She gave a feral grin and leaped over to it. She caught the branch and swung into it. She shimmied down and jogged over to her car. She had a silver Aston Martin 'Vanquish', vintage 2003 edition.

She got in and turned it on. She could hear her music blaring from the open window and shrugged. The boys would break into her room soon enough, just to make sure she wasn't killing herself or something stupid like that. She wasn't that idiotic, but she probably wouldn't be able to get that through their heads. She hadn't been able to get it through Dr. Js head, or anyone else's on the base for that matter. She leaned to the back seat and pulled out a CD folder from a hidden spot in one of the seats. She pulled out a mix and shoved it in. The blaring music had a heavy beat to it. She pulled a pair of sun glasses out of the glove box and raced out of the parking lot. She took off down the road without a second thought, not knowing where she was going, and not really caring either.

"Should we break down the door?" Duo asked. Quatre gave him a scandalized look.

"And ruin what little trust she has in us in the first place?" He asked.

"What if she does something stupid?" Wufei asked.

"Stupid? She already did, do you know what that man's gonna do to her?" Duo demanded.

"Nothing," Heero said with a glare, his gun in his hand.

"Dude, Heero, it's not good to go pointing that thing at faculty members," Duo pointed out.

"It's not good for faculty members to torture students," Trowa commented.

"So you're going to sink down to his level?" Quatre demanded of Heero.

"Hn," Heero grunted while giving the blonde a look that clearly said 'what do you think?'. Quatre put a hand over his eyes and shook his head.

"Could you just wait until he actually tries something at least?" Quatre pleaded. Heero looked at him a moment longer and shrugged.

"That's a relief," Duo said with a grateful sigh.

"We still need to check on the onna," Wufei commented.

"Hn," Heero pulled out his gun and pointed it at the handle.

"Could we please refrain form destroying her sanctuary?" Quatre asked in an aggrieved tone.

"Leave this to me," Duo said with a smile. He reached to the nape of his neck and pulled out a small device.

"What is that?" Quatre asked.

"Lock pick," Duo replied in good cheer.

"Why am I not surprised?" Questioned Quatre.

"I am the Shinigami," Duo cried as he opened the door. The room was empty. Quatre walked over and shut off the radio.

"Miss Rei?" He called.

"She's not here," Wufei commented.

"She's gone for a drive," Trowa commented.

"How would you know?" Duo asked. Trowa handed him a note to read aloud.

Pilots -

Don't be so surprised that I know who you are, just as you know who I am. I know a lot of things. If it is some sort of emergency, you will have to get a hold of Doctor Claw. He'll know how to reach me. Concern for my safety does not fall under 'emergency' nor does curiosity and I shant be happy if you call for anything else so trivial. I will be back at some point. Do not think that I do not know what my actions could have caused. Trust me, I know.

"Heero, you getting J on the vid?" Duo asked. Heero grunted.

"Yes?" asked the old man with a claw on his hand.

"I take it that you are Doctor Claw?" Duo asked with a grin.

"So Rei has already blown her cover?" Dr J asked with a shake of his head.

"She kneed the PE teacher in the groin," Quatre told him with a slight wince.

"She always had spunk," J said with a nod.

"That's not spunk, that's a death wish," Duo told the doctor.

"I thought none of you liked the man," Dr. J retorted.

"That may be the case, but as a faculty member you must treat him with a certain amount of respect," Wufei told the man.

"As his students, he should be treating you all with a certain amount of respect as well," Dr. J reminded him.

"Is this your way of telling us that she isn't allowed to get in trouble for this?" Duo asked with a grin.

"Yes it is," Dr. J answered in the affirmative.

"The reason we called in the first place," Quatre interrupted, "Was because she has left and we were worried about her,"

"I'm not asking how to find her," Duo said, hands above his head.

"Then who is asking?" J asked, for some reason amused.

"The rest of us," Quatre said with a sigh.

"Why are you acting like a helpless onna Maxwell?" Wufei asked.

"Because Rei's gonna be pissed and she's J's favorite. I don't wanna get a new haircut," Duo answered primly.
