The wooden door fell to the ground, causing dust to spring up. Dimitri and Stapleton had their guns pointed at Prince and the other man. Three heads turned towards them as the dust settled down.

"Ah, why it isn't your fellow agents coming to the rescue." Prince grinned.

"Looks like you're outnumbered then." Lucas smiled back as Dimitri and Stapleton stood next to him.

"Ah, ah ah." Prince shook his head. "I don't think so."

The three agents looked confused. However, their confusion was soon clarified when someone else stepped out of the darkness. Their eyes widen when they saw who it was.

"Erin. Lucas said.

He was about to step forward when Prince stopped him with a raised palm.

"Don't even think about it. You see, Erin here has nicely volunteered to have this bomb strapped around her waist." Prince explained showing the agents. "If any of you dare to make one move or kill me then this bomb will be detonated."

"How dare you!" Lucas shouted.

"I know." Prince said. "Now I think it would be wise if you lowered your guns. Unless, you want to die?"

Dimitri and Stapleton looked at Prince then at Lucas. Lucas nodded, lowering his gun as the other two did the same too.

"Alright." Lucas said calmly. "We put our weapons down, now it's only fair that get your friend there to put his down."

"Very well." Prince signalled for the man to lower his gun back in its holster.

"Oh and you too." Lucas finished off.

Prince pretended to look shocked.

"Me?" He asked.

Lucas nodded.

"Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but as you can see I carry no weapon."

"Oh, don't you?" Lucas pressed.

"No, I don't."

"What about the detonator for the bomb?" Lucas inquired.

"Oh, that thing?" Prince remembered. "Why didn't you say?"

Prince placed a hand in a pocket and pulled out a small detonator. He raised the other hand as he bent down, placing it on the floor. He then stood back up.

"Now, that I've got your attention, I want to take a trip down memory lane." Prince announced. "As you might recall, I told you I had a deal. I would confess everything if you did what I ordered you to do. Do you remember?"

"I do." Lucas responded. "But, if I kill the Queen, that still wouldn't prove you were behind the assassination."

Prince chuckled.

"Oh, I don't mean that job. I meant the other one. I'll confess to treason if you kill that other agent. The one who was posing as 'Marian'." He carried on.

"Now why would I do that?"

"Let's just say as a final tribute to Robin Hood."

"What?" Lucas said.

He had no idea what was going on in Prince's head. Maybe it wasn't Kovalevski with mental health problems. Maybe it was Prince instead. Whatever it was, Lucas wasn't prepared to kill an innocent just for the sake of following some script.

"You must be mad if you think I'm going to kill someone just for your pleasure." Lucas told Prince.

"I guess you don't want a confession then?" Prince pushed.

"Of course, we want a confession."

"Then kill her."

"No chance."

"As you wish then."

Prince grabbed the detonator. His finger was about to press the trigger when he grunted in pain. He double over clutching his left side. Prince looked up. Smoke was billowing out of the gun being held by Dimitri.

"That wasn't a wise move." Dimitri said.

The other man was about to go for his own gun, when Stapleton pointed his gun at him. The man stopped in mid air before raising both palms out.

"Now that was a wise move." Stapleton said.

With both suspects disarmed, the three agents cuffed them and read them their rights. Lucas, meanwhile, was straight by Erin's side trying to disarm the bomb. Within a few seconds, the bomb was safe to be removed from Erin's waist. She let out a breath she didn't realise she was holding. Bent over, she breathed quickly.

"You're safe." Lucas said as he placed a comforting hand on her back. "Think you can walk?"

Erin gave him a nod. With some support from Lucas, they walked outside where the other two had put the suspects in the back of the car. Dimitri and Erin got on either side of Prince and the other man, while Stapleton got in the front and Lucas sat in the driver's seat. On the way back to MI5 Headquaters, Lucas called Harry to give him the news. The call to Harry had just ended when Lucas and Stapleton heard two grunts as if someone had been punched in the stomach. Stapleton turned around to see what was happening when a fist landed on his face.

"Ouch". Stapleton covered his nose as he felt the blood trickle down.

The next thing Lucas was struggling to keep control of the car as someone had his neck in a tight grip. The car swerved as Lucas tried to fight off whoever had grabbed him. Then there was a crash. Everything went black. Slowly, groans and moans could be heard as Lucas and Stapleton began to regain their senses.

"Is everyone alright?" Lucas asked trying to work out if he had broken anything.

"Uh, I think so." Stapleton replied.

"Dimitri? Erin?" Lucas asked the others.

"Uh, yeah." Dimitri responded.

"Erin?" Lucas asked again.

No answer. Dimitri undid his seatbelt. Prince was unconcious but, breathing. The other man, however, was dead. Opening the car door, Dimitri stumbled to the other passenger side. Yanking the door open, he saw Erin had a deep laceration wound to the head and there was blood dripping from Erin's right side. He felt for a pulse.

"How is she?" Lucas asked as he came to the car's side door.

"She's got a pulse but, it's faint."

"Okay. What about the other two?"

"Prince is unconcious but, the other guy's dead."

"Right. I'll call an ambulance, then I'll call Harry."

After Lucas had dialled for an ambulance, he called Harry. Although Harry was concerned for Erin's welfare, he also worried about Prince. He wanted to know if he was going to make it. Lucas informed him that at the moment all they knew was that he was unconscious. They wouldn't know how serious until the ambulance arrived and paramedics looked at him.
