Cole dashed to Lynn, "listen, my screwdriver is not a weapon. It's a probe." Cole turned away and started searching for the pendant.
“Like I said, you find it, you keep it. I honestly don’t care.” She dropped down to the ground and proceeded to walk to HQ. She didn’t care about the thing anymore. She gave it up on her own terms.
Cole was at ground level now, he sat on the bench and examined all possibilities. He closed his eyes, right from the moment where he saw Lynn retrieve it. He distinctly remember a guy giving her the pendant. That was when Cole had been there. He remembered that she didn't have time or anyone to pass it on to. Then he remembered the moment where she stopped before jumping off the building side. Cole stood up, "a ha!" Cole smiled and ran to the building. He scaled it and analyzed the cracks in the wall. Finally Cole found a crack large enough to hold the pendant. He stuffed his fingers in there. Cole pulled out a slip of paper. His smile turned into a frown. The slip said, Too Late. Cole screamed with rage. He scaled down the building and instantly he thought it was Lynn.
Lynn was busy helping the others. Apparently, Cole had done something to make all the guns explode. That meant numerous second degree burns. She sighed deeply—that stupid little rock wasn’t worth this. “I’m sorry,” she mumbled as she bandaged each person.
Cole quickly found Lynn's hiding place. He boldly entered the safehouse and Lynn was there bandaging her comrades. Cole pulled out his sonic screwdriver. "Where's my pendant!"
Lynn involuntarily jumped when she heard Cole’s voice. She whipped around and looked at him, completely irritated. “You still haven’t found it? Fine. It’s in a hole in the first building I climbed—right inside the chimney. Go get it and it’s yours.”
"It's not there." Cole hissed. He needed that pendant. He needed it now. He made a promise to someone that he would get it.
Lynn crinkled her brow. Then she threw her hands up in the air. "Well, I don't know then. That's where I left it, and that's the last place I saw it. If it isn't there, you're on your own."
Cole screamed in fustration. "No!" He kick the wall with all his strength and pain shot up his foot. He yelped in pain. Then Cole walked out. "Whatever..." He was still determined to find it.
Lynn crossed her arms and waited a minute before finally deciding to follow him out. "Why are you so upset? I thought you just wanted it because you wanted it."
Cole hesitated, he turned he stopped completely. Cole didn't anwser. Instead he walked up to Lynn and kissed her. Then he left.
Lynn blinked and gaped at the air where Cole used to be. He had to just be messing with her. It had to be one of his random things he always does. Yeah, that's it. He didn't have an answer so he did that. She tried to convince herself that it was nothing and she should forget about it, but the crimson would not subside. The memory was too fresh to fade. She glanced back at HQ before starting back to the abondoned apartment complex she lived in.
Cole was a good part away from the building now. He chuckled to himself. "What did I just do?" He sat there for a second before getting up and disappearing into the night.
Lynn walked as the light faded even more and transformed into an extremely dark night. The rapidly cooling air felt good. She reached her apartment complex and headed to a room on the fifth floor. She stuck her key in the lock, turned it, entered the apartment, removed the key, shut the door, and re-locked it. Then she went and plopped on the couch and stared up at the ceiling. Strange that someone found the pendant before he did…Stange that he did that afterwards...Strange that I'm still thinking about it. Forget, Lynn! Forget! She sighed.
Cole was in his temporary safehouse. He was on his laptop scanning the satalites for footage of the building where Lynn had hidden the pendant and someone had stolen it. When he saw some one pull it out and walk away he chuckled. Technology was his number one favorite thing.
Lynn grabbed her spare handgun, concealed it, and decided to wander around the streets at night. It seemed like a good thing to do. Maybe she could find someone to scare the cr.ap out of or something.
Cole was near the apartment building where the man had stolen his pendant. Cole snuck in. Later he came out with a gun pointed to his head.
Lynn exited the building through the back, emergency exit. She walked around to the front and was startled when she glimpsed a guy holding a gun to another guy’s head. After taking a second to squint and try to figure out who these people were, she said scre.w it and shot the one holding the gun. What? He was going to kill another person. He seemed like the one to shoot. Though…maybe she was just trigger happy.
When the guy behind him got shot Cole flinched to the sound of the gunshot. He looked at his saviour. After a moment Cole shouted, "Thanks!" Then he realized it was Lynn. His smile faded.
Lynn walked closer, trying to distinguish who it was. It was Cole. She hesitated in one of her steps, but continued on to crouch by the now dead gunman. "Don't mention it. I'm always looking for target practice," she murmured. She picked up the gun and examined it, trying to decide if she wanted it.
