Tai dropped his piece of pizza and his eyes nearly popped out of his head. "What the hell are you guys doing?!"
Mimi had a sarcastic remark to that but knew that this was not the time to say it. Her and Matt froze and looked like deers caught in a headlight. TK ran over to the room to see what all the commotion was about. "What's going on- OH MY GOD!!!!!!!" He saw Matt on top of Mimi on the couch. "Are you crazy?! Sora could walk in here any minute!!"
"She will if you keep yelling like that so shut the hell up!" Matt hissed. He pushed himself up and helped Mimi up. They didn't make eye contact with each other, after all they were nearly caught doing the unthinkable.
"I need to talk to you." Tai and TK said in unison. Tai took Mimi's arm and pulled her into the kitchen while TK and Matt stayed in the living room. "What the hell are you thinking Mimi?! You told me you weren't falling for Matt!"
"Calm down! Geez, I....I did it for the sake of the mission..." Mimi lied. She knew the exact reason why she did what she did but knew Tai would blow up if he found out.
"What do you mean?" Tai puzzled.
Mimi had to think quickly. "I figured if I hooked up with Matt then I would be able to get into his mind. See how he operates things and find out secrets and stuff like that. It's all strictly business. You have nothing to worry."
Tai gave her a look. "Were you going to tell me this plan of yours any time soon?" He crossed his arms on his chest and leaned against the wall.
"I'm sorry. I should've told you. You're not mad, are you?" Mimi pouted and took his hand and rubbed it between her hands.
"No... But I think you should abandon this idea of yours. You know how you tend to get attach to people..."
"Are you saying I can't separate my feelings from my work?" Mimi asked slightly angry.
Tai knew he had to be careful with his words because this was a sensitive subject with her. "No, I'm not saying that at all but.... remember the last assignment when you fell in love with-"
Mimi let go of his hand and put her hands on her hips. "I knew you would bring that up and throw it in my face! I'm not gonna stand here and listen to your shit. Especially when you're doing the exact same thing I'm doing with Sora!" She turned and walked away from Tai.
"Except I know how to keep my personal life out of it!!" Tai retorted.
"What do you want TK?" Matt asked, hoping this would end quickly. He knew he shouldn't have let things go as far as it did. Oddly, he didn't regret it though.
"Are you freakin' nuts Matt?!" TK yelled. You're with Sora! You-"
"I don't give a fuck about Sora." Matt interrupted.
TK was a little shock. "... Well, I'm glad you feel that way but besides that, Mimi is with Ken. I know you don't care about Ken but think what he would do if he found out Mimi cheated on him. He has a temper and will probably teach her a lesson for being unfaithful to him."
Matt never thought about that. How could he have been so stupid? TK was right, Ken is capable of doing that and Mimi probably doesn't know that side of him. "You're right."
TK sighed in relief that Matt agreed. Though he only knew Mimi for a short time, he cared about her and thought she was a good person. He would have to admit, he did have a tiny crush on her but it was just that. "So you are going to keep things strictly business with her?"
"I'll be strictly professional with her." Matt sighed and ran his hand through his hair.
Later That Evening
Matt and Ken were discussing business in the living room. "There's this painting I want for my collection." Ken said as he took a sip of his wine. He took a picture of the painting out of his pocket and gave it to Matt.
"Don't you have enough of those already?" Matt laughed.
"It's not my fault I'm more sophisticated than you." Ken smirked.
Matt felt like punching that face of his. "More like an arrogant ass..." he said to himself.
"What did you say?"
"I said why do you want the painting?"
"It's a Van Gogh. It was a long lost painting they just recently found. It's quite remarkable. I need it tonight."
"Why do you need it so soon?" Matt asked.
"My parents are coming in from Italy tomorrow. I want them to see my recently acquired painting." Ken smiled. "I'll pay you half a million dollars if you can get it tonight."
"This painting must be painted with gold or something. But alright, I'll get my men assembled and-"
"Oh, there's one more thing I want." Ken interrupted.
"What is it?" Matt snapped. He hated being interrupted, Especially by Ken.
"I want Mimi on the mission."
Matt was surprised. Why on earth does he want Mimi on the mission? He tried to think of reasons why but thought of none. "Why?"
"The poor girl wants to go on a mission but you won't let her. Why is that Matt? Do you have feelings for the girl?" Ken asked.
Matt couldn't say yes. He scoffed, "Of course not."
"Then let her be on the mission." Ken grinned. He knew Matt couldn't refuse.
Matt has never hated Ken as much as he does right at this moment. "Fine. Anything else you want?"
Ken thought about it. "Nope. Just make sure you don't scratch the painting." Ken smirked. He set his glass of wine of the coffee table and got up to leave. He held out his hand for Matt to shake. Matt took his hand and gripped hard. "Nice doing business with you." With that Ken left.
Matt got his maid and asked her to bring him Mimi, Tai, Izzy and Phil. Within a couple of minutes they were all in the living room. "There's a mission tonight and I want the three of you to be on it. Of course, Phil, you'll be the driver and lookout. Izzy, you'll find out about the security of the museum and disable it. Tai and Mimi, you two are going to steal this painting." He showed them the picture of the painting. "Any questions?"
Tai raised his hand. "I do, why is Mimi on the mission? I mean, she hasn't been on one since we joined so why now?" Mimi glared at him.
"Because Ken wants her on it." Matt gave her an accused look, thinking she put Ken up to it. "Are we done here? Alright, better get all your equipment and get on it."
2:00 A.M. On The Roof Of The Museum
"I have a bad feeling about this..." Tai said as he and Mimi waited for Izzy to give them the signal that the security was dismantled.
"Why? Because I'm a screw up?" Mimi said angrily.
"Are you still mad at me?"
"What do you think? You're basically saying I can't do anything right."
"I'm not saying that! I'm just saying... Ah forget it. You know I can't go on a mission knowing you're angry at me. Please forgive me? Please?!" Tai got on his knees and hugged her torso tightly.
"Alright alright! You're squeezing my bladder!" Mimi laughed. She could never stay mad at him when he does that.
Static "Are you guys ready? The security system is down. You have about a half hour. Good luck."
"Thanks Izzy." Tai said into his radio. "Ready?" Mimi nodded. Tai cut a large circle into the glass and carefully took it out. Then Mimi tied a rope around a heating vent and secured it around the vent tightly. First Tai went down the rope and when he made it down safely, then it was Mimi's turn. When she made it to the floor, they looked around for the painting. After about ten minutes of searching Tai found it and radioed Mimi to come over.
"It's beautiful..." Mimi said in awe.
"Whatever, let's just steal it and get out of here." Tai said. Mimi was just about to retort that comment but then saw something or someone in the shadows behind Tai. He saw the look on her face and turned around. A figure whacked Tai on the head and knocked him out. Mimi was about to radio for help but someone grabbed her and put a rag filled with chloroform over her nose and mouth.
"No...stop...hel..." Mimi dropped the radio and went limp. The figure took her body and both of the mystery men went the back way and left.
5:00 A.M. FBI Headquarters
"Where am I? Why do I have a headache? Where's Mimi?" Tai asked as he rubbed his head and looked around. This all looks strangely similar to him.
"You're at the FBI Headquarters. We found you at the museum knocked out." Jake said.
"She wasn't with you. Do you have any idea what happened to her?"
Tai figured it all out. "It was all a trap..."
How was it? Good? Bad? Anyway, I hope you enjoyed it! Sadly this story is coming to an end, but about time I say lol. If all goes to according to the plan, there's two more chapters left. TWO MORE! Thanks for reading and review if you want! Happy Holidays!
