*Damn it* she thought as she paced the floor. *Clues...clues* She stopped pacing and looked at the clock. That figure's smile came back into her memory and she gritted her teeth.

"I'll give you four minutes before I kill my next victim. If you can't figure it out, I'm home free baby girl,"

"Damn, he's right. By then he'd be out the country," she spoke, "No wait! We'll...crap! We don't even got his name! Nothing to trace him with!"

She slammed her fists into the concrete wall. Over and over she did this until someone grabbed both her arms.

"You know, if you don't calm down, you'll just make things worse and alot harder for yourself,"

She sighed and turned around, "I know Mark, but it's...it's just so frustrating!"

"Yeah and the rest of us are like so uber happy," he rolled his eyes and twirled his fingers in the air.

She chuckled and hit his arm playfully.

"You're a card," she smiled.

"Yeah? What kind, the King right?" he smirked.

She sighed and shook her head, "No, you're the king's joker,"

"Aww man," he snapped his fingers, "I was hoping to be king, so you'd be my queen,"

Her cheeks turned a rosy color as she stared at him. *Did he...really just say that?* she thought. Then she came back into reality. She forgot the clock was ticking and lost track of time.

"Relax queenie, three minutes and thirty-two seconds remains," he said.

She let out a sigh of relief, "You think the girl's camera got anything?"

"Don't know, let's go see," he said leading the way.

*He think's he such a leader.* She rolled her eyes and smirked. *He's no follower either* Soon they came to a door and opened it. It was dark but thanks to the tv monitors lined up against the wall, there was a nice light.

"Jimmy me boy, got anything?" Mark said.

"Yeah, but it's hard to see anything. This guy stood right in front of the damn camera, blocking alot of vital things," he said.

"Did you see his face?" Mark asked.

"You idiot, didn't I just say the camera was blocked?! You seriously are stuck on stupid aren't you?" Jimmy said cocking an eyebrow at him.

She just laughed and turned her attention to the monitors. Just then she saw something flash in the screen. She squinted to look at it better. Then she saw something fly past the camera as the figure left the room.

"Hey, Jim, rewind the tape and enlarge on all the monitors, I found my a clue," she smiled.

He ran his finges all over the keyboard. The image relarged on all the monitors. Everyone in the room stared at the screen, waiting. Suddenly she pointed at the screen.

"There! There! Zoom in!" she exclaimed.

"Someone's excited," Mark smirked.

"That's just one thing that gets me excited," she smirked.

He returned the smirk, "I bet I could get you excited,"

Suddenly her face turned bright red as she slapped Mark in the head. He rubbed his head as she crossed her arms.

"I was only kidding, yeesh. Women," he said.

Jimmy snickered. She returned her attention back on the screen. A smirk slid across her features as she started to leave the room.

"Hey, where ya goin?" Mark asked.

"I just need to return to the house. Come on Marky boy, bring your gun too," she said.

"Somebody's bout to get busssted," he sang.


The car swirved as they abruptly came to a stop. Both Takara and Mark jumped out the car. Police tape was everywhere and a coupled of the task force was there too. Takara and Mark greeted the mquickly as they ran inside.

"Alright I saw it, upstairs in the room," she said as they went up a flight of stairs.

Soon they were running down the hall and came to a door. Suddenly it fell to the ground and Mark stood there grinning. Takara was about to say something but she changed he rmind.

"Time?" she said as she dropped to the floor.

"Geez time goes by fast!" he exclaimed, "Two and ten seconds remaining,"

"Aha! Found it!" she exclaimed.

In her hand was the answer to whole case. How could the murdere be so stupid as to leave this, let alone have it at all during the killing. She showed Mark what she found. A smirk soon slid across his face.

"Idiot, he know he goin to jail now! Let's go bust his ass!" he grinned as the y ran out the door.

[Finally, a moron who doesn't know what he's doing] she thought.


The figure smirked to himself as he walked in the airport. People were everywhere and he stood in the midst of them all. He held onto his suitcase and plane ticket while he pushed his shades up.

He approached the desk with the smiling brunette at it.

"Hello sir," she smiled.

He nodded and handed her the ticket and card. She looked over the ticket and gave him the boarding pass. Then he placed his suitcase on the scale.

"Thanks baby girl," he said.

She nodded and placed the suitcase on the conveyer belt. He walked through everything else.

"Flight 22 now boarding,"

*Right on time* he thought. *Sorry baby girl, but you won't be catching me now or ever*

He made his way to the gate and boadred the airplane. He sat in the middle row and sighed. The flight attendants did theri thing and he buckled in.

"Alright sit back and-" the pilot was cut off.

He cocked an eyebrow as he sat in his seat. Soon two more people came onto the plane. His eyes widened. *Fuck!* he thought as he struggled with the seat belt. *Open goddamnit!*

Too late.

Both their guns were pointed at his head. He glared at the woman who had a huge smirk on her face.

"Your under arrest Carver," Mark said.

He unbuckled his seatbelt and placed him in cuffs.

"But, how?"

"For starters, when you kill someone, you don't leave a driver's license behind,"

Takara walked in front of the man and smirked, "Time's up and it looks like you've been caught baby boy,"
