"How can we trust you?" I ask.
The 'traitor', Alan, looked at me for the first time. His eyes go wide in recognition and I flinch.
"You're Miki..... the goverments best agent..... you went missing a month ago with....." He looked at Adrian. "A criminal...... I read your file though... Full to the-"
My hand comes hard across his face. Everyone stares shocked.
"No one needs to know anything" Then seeing the others look of distrust I turn and run out the warehouse.
"Miki" Adrian shouts after me but he knows its pointless.
I get out side... and scream. I slump to the floor and sob. I don't know why I react this way.
Maybe its cause I know I'll never live my reputation down. Maybe it's cause I know my past will always follow me.
"Miki" I look up at Oliver. A frowns on his face.
"Go away" I mumble burying my head back in my knees.
"Maybe they should of sent Adrian but Scarlett said I should go..... no idea why" he sits down next to me. I choke out a laugh and I look at him.
"I'm sorry" I mutter then look back straight ahead.
"What do you have to be sorry for? What's in your file?" he asks.
"Missions..... captures" I whisper.
"Oh" thats all he can seem to say.
"Call me what you want.... I'm use to it"
"How did you join the goverment..... I mean you look so......"
"Innocent" I say smiling smugly. He blushes but nods.
"That's the reason. I was raised in the goverment..... Then when the law was past they sent me out. Again and again and again. I knew what it was for but...." I took in a sharp breath. ".... Lets just say I saw what they do to the mothers behind closed doors"
He winces, probably thinking of his sister.
"Maybe I should just leave Adrian with you lot and go out on my own" I mutter. "Non of you seem to trust me"
"I do" I look at Oliver confused.
"How can you trust me when you've only just met me?" I ask.
"Call it my sixth sense" he says smiling. He stands up and offers me his hand. I take it and he pulls me to my feet.
Then we make are way back inside and not once does he let go of my hand.
