Before Holly could respond, they were at the top floor. When Jack offered her a seat, for a fleeting moment she subconsciously grabbed Brad's sleeve and froze. She closed her eyes and breathed in only to open her eyes as she let the air out. As she stepped further into the office, she caught a glimpse of Josiah out of the corner of her eye. However, she did not make eye contact. She was finally with him again...but it didn't have the same feeling she thought it would. Now, she couldn't even bring herself to look over in his direction. She took her seat, crossed her legs and folded her hands on her lap. Holly then glanced over at Jack.

"I bet you boys feel powerful now." She says sarcastically.

JOSIAH leaned against the wall, behind where Holly sat. As Brad tried to enter, he shot his arm across the doorway.

"Sorry buddy, big boys only."




"Come on, Edgar, let's go find Commander Alden. Isha's probably with him, grinding him out about how long it's taking you to get here."




A man stepped through the door and approached Isha. He seemed to be old, possibly in his seventies. His face was thin, and his skin covered in wrinkles. His grey hair was back, as if it had been slicked, but no one had attended to it in a long time. He wore a black suit, all buttoned up, with a blue tie.

As he approached Isha, she could see a glint of metal. The man reached up and stuck a needle into the IV.

"Don't worry, Isha," he comforted as the greed fluid rushed into her veins, "it's just a little adrenaline."

He sat down in a wicker chair next to the bed, that Isha was positive hadn't been there before.

"You've had a rough evening. You'd be dead if I hadn't saved you."

Outraged, Holly jumped to her feet.

"He stays Josiah." She said cooly. She finally made eye contact with him. She froze in place and no words could come to her mind. Part of her wanted to just reach out and slug Josiah, and another wanted to hug him. She was glad he was safe...couldn't help it...but she was also still suspicious of him.

"If I have to put up with being here, so does Mr. Desin." She says finally, gently nudging Josiah's hand out of the way.

She then looked over at Jack. "Now...Mr..." She paused, unsure of what to call him. It doesn't matter now. she thought to herself.

"I don't know who the hell you think you are...BOTH of you." She says angrily, turning to Josiah as well. "Where do you get off thinking you can bring me here...AGAINST my will I might add...You're not getting anything from me, so you'd better either kill me or just send me on my way." She grossed her arms, glaring at both Josiah and Jack.

Brad nodded to Holly. He brought her in here, and she was going to come out alive under his protection. She was a neutral, and he would protect her from death or torture, buth not much else.

"Dreddin," Jack said, ignoring what she said. "Jack Dreddin." He grabbed a nearby cup, and offered it to her, "Tea?"

Whether or not she took it, he then walked over to his desk, and sat down. "Josiah," he said. "Take your shard, and I want to know what I get paid for bringing her here in such good condition. Or do you break this sort of deal as well?"

Brad leaned over and whispered to Holly, "don't go overboard, that shard won't be any good to you if you're dead."

Ignoring the offer for tea, Holly glanced up at Brad and shook her head. "You didn't see the display that I was so privileged to witness..." She said softly. When he attacked them at the Suvoj base... she thought.

She let out a sigh and then looked over at Josiah. "What are you doing?" She decided to get to the point rather than go off on another one of her tangents. "Josiah, you're not getting the damned thing from me." She didn't know what to do. There was still a small part that saw him as the Josiah she had traveled with. Maybe he's just trying to trick them? she wondered. But then...why would he act as he did earlier?

"Mr. Dreddin, what makes you think he won't use this thing against you?" Holly had finally decided not to trust Josiah this time. Even if this was some sort of trick, he was wrong. He was hurting people to get what he wanted. She wasn't going to help him. "Mr. Desin, there was something I didn't tell you earlier." She turned around to face him, and caught a glimpse of Josiah. It doesn't matter what I say about my shard in front of him...he already knows.

"Yes, it always formed a protective shield around me when I've needed it, but...Leo-someone was hurt. Severely. I can't explain exactly what happened, but it healed him...I'm guessing that's why it didn't activate when you held the gun to me and brought me here. It's probably been tapped out for a while. I sure as hell felt that way after the little light show from earlier."

She paused. "I still don't understand the damned thing, but I've been comming up with some possibilities...Josiah..." Again she turned toward him. "I'd rather not experiment with my assumptions today. You're not getting it."

She turned to Jack and gave a slight nod. "Now, I hope that I've made myself perfectly clear. As long as I'm alive, this shard will be in no one else's posession." She said matter-of-factly. "Mr. Desin, I'm sorry...it won't do me any good if I'm dead...but we'll all probably end up that way if Josiah gets everything he wants."

Josiah slowly lowered his arm.

"Fine, he can stay. Now, Jack, remember what you will gain. An unlimited supply of shards just like mine. And Holly," he said, turning to her, a sad, timid look in his eyes, "Holly, please. Do this for me. Just give the man your shard, so we can leave safely."




As Alden watched Leon, bemused, a blaring alarm sounded across the Marinae base.

"Shit," Alden cursed as he turned around and pressed a button on the intercom panel next to the door, "What now?"

"Commander," said the tinny voice issuing from the intercom, "It's the... um... new jets. Someone's stolen one."

"Eric," he muttered as he released the intercom, "Time's up, we're going."

He waved his hand, and the computer stowed itself away. He stormed out the door, not even checking to see if Leon was following.

"No." She said calmly. "Hasn't anyone heard a damned word I've said?" Her cheeks began to fluster. She was getting aggrivated. She opened her mouth to say something, but no words came out. Instead, she turned sharply and quickly moved past Brad toward the elevator, the way they came in.

I don't care. There is no reason for me to be here anymore... she thought to herself.

The elevator doors in front of Holly slammed open, and a familiar face, rather unexpected face showed up drop dead in front of her. The devishly handsome grim of Seifer Ehnzo shined brightly in the eyes of the young Holly, and he quickly stepped forward, only to be yanked back by the guard who had tagged along with him.

"Ah, Ms. Holly, just the beautiful girl I was looking for. I do believe I had promised you my services once a time a go, but due to extenuating circumstances involving my former employers, I had some duties to do. So, I came looking for you here, where rumour placed you. Would we be well met, or do I come to your aid at an inappropriate time?"

The guard holding Seifer looked at him intently, and Seifer returned a gaze that frightened the guard, causing him to back up into the elevator. He used the Holy Trinity Shard to break apart his handcuffs and smiled as he rubbed his wrists.

"Now, what can I do for you at this current point in time, my beautiful Holly?"

Jack and Brad frowned at this man, and Brad quickly used his shard to creat an energy canceller on Saifer's wrists. It should stop any kinetic energy, such as movement, in the elected areas, that it, the wrists or feet.

"Who are you?" Jack asked, "We are very busy right now, you can speak to her later when she is under supervision."

Brad glared, hoping that his shard had done the neccesary job.

Josiah's face hardens as he stands up.

"This, Jack, is an old friend of mine. So, Seifer, have you come to kill me again?"

Holly gasped as the doors opened and Seifer appeared before her. Her eyes widened and her heart skipped a beat. Finally!! she thought to herself. Holly grinned. "Hello Seifer." She says calmly. However, before she could say or do anything else, Brad had used his shard to bind Seifer.

"Stop it!" She shouted. Her wrist grew warm as her shard began to glow. She took two steps back, practically leaning aginst Seifer. It's working again! she thought, as a shield enveloped both Holly and Seifer.

She looked over at Josiah and glared. "I still don't understand what you're doing or why you're doing it...you're not getting it." Her voice was soft, but firm.

Seifer laughed, and as the shield enveloped Seifer and Holly, Seifer used his Holy Trinity shard to shatter the binds. He put his right arm around Holly's shoulder and smiled at the others.

"Josiah...I didn't know you were still alive. You must be the same Josiah they spoke of earlier, the little child. Tricked my eyes....No, I'm not here for you, despite our score. Just here for Holly. My word is the only law I abide to. If she wishes to leave, we leave. If any of you wish to say otherwise, I am here to stop you. "

He kept a tight hold on Holly, and his other hand was firmly on his Tremor shard. If anyone were to try anything, he was a few seconds away from a safe escape. He was much more confused as to wonder how Josiah was still alive, but now wasn't the time for questions.

Holly nodded. "An escape would be greatly appreciated." Her voice was soft and a bit distant. She looked over at Brad momentarily and then her eyes shot to the floor. "I'm sorry Mr. Desin..." Was all she could think to say.

Josiah still needs them...he won't hurt anybody. she thought to herself ruefully. She cast one final look at Josiah before tilting her head upward and to the side. "I'm ready whenever you are, Seifer."

"Alright, then. We will be going now. Try and stop me."

Seifer took two steps forward, completly protecting Holly, and opened both his hands. The Tremor and Holy Trinity shards were in his hands, and with a seconds' notice, he could combine the two to make a deadly effecient defense or attack even without unsheathing his sword.

"Holly, to the elevator. I'm right behind you. Oh, and Josiah...the next time we meet, I'll make sure you die and don't get up."

"Right." Was all she said. She trusted that Seifer knew what he was doing and knew she'd only get into the way. "Just please don't hurt anyone..." She whispered, gently placing a hand on his back before turning toward the elevator.

Jack quickly reached out and slammed a button on his desk. The elevator slammed closed, and all of the glass windows had metal panels cover them. He was glad that the floor and cieling were titanium enforced, as were all of the walls. They were two feet thick, and strong enough to be a bomb shelter. This was effectively enescapable. They also had another foot of wood, and then another of concrete. The security for this room had cost a fortune, especially to put that much protection into the windows.

"Let's stay and chat," Jack said, and he quickly pushed another button on his desk. "No point in killing me, this room will only open with my code put into the computer."

Brad looked at Holly, "don't do this. We can be a terrible enemy, and once you conflict with our interests, you will no longer be a neutral. Stay. If you try to escape then we will have nearly a thousand troops after you just as you try to leave the building.

She stopped suddenly, as everything around the room closed up. Sharply, she turned to Brad. "No longer be a neutral? How the hell is getting out of here not remaining neutral?!" She exclaimed. Holly moved past Seifer to get a better view of Brad. "I am a person, Mr. Desin. This is exactly WHY I am not siding with any of these factions. It's run by a bunch of spoiled people who think they can do whatever they want WITH whatever they want." Her cheeks began to flush for like the hundredth time that day as she spoke. "I've already made it perfectly clear that you aren't getting my shard. I don't trust what you all will use it for." She shot a glance at Josiah quickly, before turning over to Jack. "Therefore, Mr. Dreddin, since no one can come up with a good counter argument, the shard is no longer up for discussion."

She paused. "With that said, there is no reason for Seifer and I to be here. You can't force a person, against their will to be here and not expect them to want to leave. It doesn't make sense how its right..."

Holly turned back and faced Seifer. "I'm so sorry..." She didn't know what else to say. Now someone else was stuck there because of her.

"You obviously don't know who you are messing with, do you? I am Seifer Ehnzo, friend! And if Miss Holly wishes to leave, then we are leaving!"

Seifer quickly brought the two shards together, and from the power of the two, an incredibly bright green light engulfed his hands. Shaking terribly, Seifer spun around and slammed the incredible energy reaction into the wall. The output of mana, mixed with the pure kinetic energy of the Tremor Shard created a powerful orb that drilled through the titanium. It took ardous focus and a substantial release of energy, but he succeded. After breaking all the way through, he used Holy Trinity to bend the metal to make a sizable enough hole. Stepping back to let Holly through, he turned back at his would be captors, breathing heavily.

"Josiah, you will have your rematch. As for you all, understand this: We might be neutral, but that does not mean we are defenseless. We have friends in high places. Now, Holly, if you please."

He pleasantly scooted Holly into the elevator and followed behind her. He flirtingly kissed her forehead before turning back around, pressing the 1F floor.

"Until next we meet, gentlemen!"

And with that, they dissapeared from sight, taking their leave of this displeasant scene.

((Fuck, you guys posted a lot since last night. Now I have to alter my plans a wee bit. And to do that, I must take control of Leon. Sorry Chris.))

As Alden stormed out of the computer room, Leon rushed up behind him.

"What's going on?"

"It's the H.O.M.I.N.I.D." Alden answered as he turned a corner.

"The hominwhat?"

"The H.O.M.I.N.I.D. It stands for Highly Oversensitive Mind Initiated Neural Interface Device."

"And that means?"

"It's a top secret mind controlled jet we've been working on. The prototype's been stolen."

As Alden marched through the Marinae headquarters with Leon in tow, Jeremy and Edgar emerged from a connecting hallway and joined with them.

"What's going on Don." Jeremy yelled over the alarm.

"Eric stole the H.O.M.I.N.I.D. to go after Holly."

"Who stole what now?" Eric asked as he stepped out from the locker room, wearing a clean set of white clothes.

"If he didn't steal the H.O.M.I.N.I.D., then who did?" Jeremy asked, out of breath, "And what happened to Holly?"




"Who does he think he is." Josiah muttered to himself. He held his hand, palm out, towards the elevator, and quickly twisted it. Their was the sound of grinding metal as the elevator was forced to a stop, then quickly rose back to the top.

As the doors opened, Josiah pulled his hands apart, and Seifer and Holly were pulled in opposite directions into the walls, where strips of metal tore off and secured them down. As Seifer struggled, his two shards slipped free from his grasp and fell to the ground, making a slight tinkling sound as they hit the metal floor.

Josiah approached Seifer.

"I'll eliminate you first, old friend."

He held out his hand and a letter opener flew from Jack's desk. He quickly caught it and brought it up. He paused as a crackling emerged from the PA system, followed by a hazy voice.

"This is a message from the Marinae. Release Holly Marina immediately, or suffer the consequences."

"Fuck." Josiah cursed. He threw out his arm and the letter opener sailed across the room, narrowly missing Jack, before embedding itself in the steel plated window. A moment later, it exploded outward. Josiah approached the new opening and stepped out, falling the 40 stories down the side of E'shyum Tower, and landing in a small cloud of dust on the ground. He looked up inquisitively at the approaching jet.




Major General Henry Marina saw Josiah's decent through the enhanced view in the cockpit of the H.O.M.I.N.I.D. jet. He recognized the man who had endangered his daughter's life.

He pressed his hands firmly on the two silver orbs in the jet, and send a mental signal out. Underneath the wings of the jet two small rockets, armed with thermonuclear devices dropped down. Half a second later the jets ignited and they sailed towards Josiah.

Josiah laughed at Holly's father's pathetic attempt at a rescue. As the missiles flew towards him, he held his hands outstretched, and clapped them together. The rockets veered off and crashed into each other, creating a small explosion that rocked the jet.

Marina send another signal that caused a small door on the underside of the nose open. A chaingun lowered, and the barrels began to spin. Josiah lept into the air as the bullets flew towards him. He continued to ascend as the stream of metal chased him up the side of the building.

He landed on the nose of the jet, and looked in through the plexiglass window.

"Hello, General Marina. Come to save your daughter? Well, I'm afraid I can't let you do that."

He held out his hand and swung it to the side. The plexiglass window tore off and sailed down to the ground below. He reached in to grab Marina.

"You want me to tell her anything after I kill you?"

"Yeah. Meet you in hell." Henry said as he brought up his shotgun. He relished Josiah's wide eyed look as he pulled the trigger and blasted him off the front of the jet. He quickly grabbed the controls and veered up, just before hitting the tower. He sailed over New York Harbor, preparing to turn around. He looked out at the water below, and saw the water begin to bubble beneath him. He had barely enough time to jump out of the jet as a pillar of water shot up, and brought it crashing down into the sea.

Josiah stood atop E'shyum tower, his arms raised above his head, and saw the tiny figure of Henry Marina fall into the ocean. He leaped into the air, and landed on the water. He reached down and grabbed Marina by the throat, and jumped back onto the roof.

He held Holly's flailing father over the edge, of the 40 story building.

"I could kill you right now," he sneered, as he released Henry. As he falled, Josiah stepped off the edge, and began running down the side after him. Halfway down he grabbed him under his arm.

"But I wont. I wont because I want to see the look on your daughter's face as I kill her father right in front of her." He threw Henry up, through the opening to Jack's office, and began walking up the side of the building after him.

Holly simply did as she was told, allowing Seifer to nudge her toward the elevator. A soft blush warmed her cheeks as he kissed her forehead. Suddenly, the elevator was brought to a hault. Being as her pride had flown out the window some hours earlier, Holly grabbed hold of Seifer's arm and held on tightly. As the elevator began to rise again, she burried her head against his arm and closed her eyes.

Why doesn't it stop? she thought to herself.

Holly didn't open her eyes again until the elevator doors opened. She then peeked over Seifer's arm and gasped as she saw that it was all Josiah's work. She clinged on as tightly as she could, but it wasn't tight enough. Next thing she knew, she was slammed against the metal and kept securely in place.

She watched as Josiah came in and sturggled to free herself.

"You sonuvabitch!" She shouted. "Leave him alone!" She continued squirming, but couldn't get free.

"This is a message from the Marinae. Release Holly Marina immediately, or suffer the consequences." Holly's attention was suddenly averted to the message. "No..." She shot a glance at Josiah, but he had already gone from the elevator. She closed her eyes and listened to all of the commotion outside, silently praying under her breath that everything would be okay.

As Harry landed in the room with a loud thud, Holly turned her head over toward the sound. She let out a scream as she recognized him almost immediately. Tears sprung up in her eyes and she swallowed repeatedly to hold them back.

"You sonuvabitch Josiah...why?" She whispered.

(OOC: Just a random tidbit, mostly for Caroi...:p I changed my charrie's age, cuz of another plot detail earlier that fell through..., but Holly's not 16, that's TOO young...WHAT was I THINKING?! Ugh...anywho...she's 18. :p So she ain't exactly a kid either... )
