The Freaks Come Out At Night

Discos don't open till after dark
And it ain't till twelve till the party really starts
And I always had to be home by ten
Right before the fun was about to begin

"What?" Matt was astonished.

"I didn't mean for this to happen, they told me it would be an easy thing!" Karissa pleaded for him to believe her with her eyes.

"You're telling me that the government asked you to spy for them in exchange for not convicting you of a crime that you didn't commit?" Jordan looked, annoyed. "That's ridiculous! You were innocent!"

"What choice did I have?" Karissa looked near frantic now. "It was either that or go to jail! Brandy and I had to do it, besides they said it would help protect people! And then there were more and more missions"

"Calm down, calm down." Matt instructed.  Who am I kidding? This is a disaster!

Jordan shifted his bandages uncomfortably. "Matt, this is a problem."

"No kidding." Matt and Karissa said, simultaneously.

Jordan smirked, looking pointedly at Matt.

Matt was shocked. Even at a time like this he still is trying to get me to like Karissa!

"What I meant was," Jordan clarified. "Is I figured out why they chose Karissa and Brandy. They were in the right place at the wrong time!"

"What?" Karissa blinked.

Matt was slowly beginning to understand.

"Don't you see?" Jordan stood up. "You and Brandy saw something that you shouldn't have! They didn't have a choice, it was either rope you into the situation or put you away where you couldn't talk about it!"

Karissa's jaw dropped. "Why didn't I see this before?"

Matt put a hand on her shoulder. "In case I'm missing something, we're still in quite a bit of danger."

Karissa nodded. "You're right, we have to get out of here." She started walking down the corridor. Matt followed.

Jordan started after them but dropped to his knees, clutching his chest and groaning with pain. "Oh God." He gasped.

Karissa turned her hand flying to her mouth in worry. "The medicine!" She exclaimed, "Its wearing off!"

"What can we do?" Matt asked. Great, another issue.

"We have to get him to the plane. Fast!" Karissa took off running.

"The plane?!"

I knew I should have stayed away from women.
