Jinos Hazard was ready. He was the man. He was sent to assassinate Black Cat in front of the entirety of Chronos superiors. He was stalking his prey.
Train, Sven, and Eve walked down the street with a calm air about them. They had just finished their latest catch and now had enough money to pay all the bills. They were headed for another person for money for decent food.
This was turning out to be a good day.
Chronos and the Numbers held their breath. This was it. Train was dead. There was no way he could dodge if he didn't know.
Creed panicked. Train was going to be killed!
Train whistled a happy tune but stopped. Something shiny had caught his eye…
Jinos grinned. It was like he was wearing a neon sign that said "Slice Me!" He shot his wires…
Chronos were on the edge of their seats. Several of the numbers had crossed their fingers. This was it…
Creed shut his eyes, anticipating the scream.
Train bent down just as five near invisible wires shot over his head. Sven and Eve looked at Train in horrified amazement.
Jinos twitched with wide eyes.
Chronos erupted into frenzied gossip.
The Numbers did a face fault.
Creed whooped and hollered like an idiot in joy.
Train straitened up and grinned. "Hey Sven! I found a penny! Heads up too." he said happily as he flashed said shiny penny.
Silence for Jinos, Chronos, the Numbers, Creed, Eve, and Sven.
"You do realize that Number 7 just tried to kill you right?" Sven dead panned.
Train blinked, turned to face Jinos…
The questions still remains weather he knew that Jinos was there and the penny was just convenient, some other world forces saved his hide, or if it truly was one of those instances and he really did just bend over to pick up a penny.
We will never know but Chronos and every other organization never went after Train like that again for fear of the same humiliating instance.
This came from me and kittybella talking about pennies and Train one day not to long ago. She stopped to pick up a penny from the floor and we were talking about Black Cat at the time so this came to be. She made a comic of it, I wrote the story. Funny isn't it. So this is a combination effort of kittybella and Kitsune Onna1 JaNe!
