Warning and disclaimer in Chapter 1


        Darien quicksilvered Rubyn, but he remained visible himself.

        The plan was for Darien to enter with the files and try to stall Arnaud long enough so Rubyn could get Lucien. Claire remained with the van to secure their escape easier.

        "Alright, Arnuad, I'm here," Darien shouted as entered.

        Rubyn followed Darien silently and then spotted Lucien tied to a chair in the middle of the room. He rushed over to his lover.

        "Do you have what I requested?" Arnaud asked.

        "Right here," and Darien held up the file.

        "Bring them to me," he ordered.

        Rubyn undid the ropes qucikly.

        'Ru?' Lucien thought

        'Yes,' Rubyn replied as he undid the last of the rope and they fell to the floor.


        Alex pulled up behind Claire's van. "So, what's going on?" she asked as Claire embraced her.

        "Arnaud demanded the quicksilver files, or he's going to kill Bobby.

        "How long has Darien been in there?"

        "About 5 minutes," Claire replied as she looked at her watch.
