"I'm afraid I can't let you do that Incogny, this is Minxie's trophy"
I looked at Artyomka, and noticed his missing ear (An previous encounter he and I had), the sight made me smile.
"I see that ear didn't grow back yet."
Incognito was about to shoot me, I was surprised, I mean Minxie was right there bleeding out and all he cared about was shooting me? No. Of course not, his instincts kicked in and he rushed to help her, knowing full well that I wouldn't attack him, he knows me so well, makes me happy.
"That's Incognito? And people say she sees that heartless bastard as a father figure? I saw him real close up. Ain't nothing left in his eyes. Shit's barren."
That comment made me smile, even Artyomka noticed.
"I know, that's why I chose him."
After that Incognito picked up Minxie, turned to face us and gave us a friendly threat.
"As for the both of you, I will kill you later."
After that, I started hearing a beeping all over the warehouse, then it hit me.
"Dimir you son of a bitch..."
That motherfucker is a smarty pants, he knew if Incognito and Artyomka would come to rescue Minxie, I would come along and interfere, which gave him a great chance to wipe all of us out, with one swift blow.
"Let's go Artyomka, I'll take you for a ride."
I grabbed his hand and went through the board's door, to leave the place, I knew Incognito would be able to get out on his own, after all, he still has my gift. I delivered both of us, to the same park where we previously met, for the first time, dropped him on the bench.
"Had your fun, Tarzan?"
"Can't believe Dimir invited all of us. He knows how to throw a party."
"Indeed, he's a tricky bastard ain't he? You know him don't you? You met him before?"
He lit his cigarette (Remember kids, don't smoke).
"Yeah, quite a while ago actually."
I got interested, not only did Dimir want to wipe all of us out, apparently he had an agenda with almost everyone in that Warehouse, except for Incognito. I sat down on the bench and made myself comfortable.
"I have some time on my hands for a story."
"Cătălina and I, when Alexandria was born, made a deal with him. Our family would be protected as long as we no longer interfered. That's how I met Dimir."
Took me a minute, but I got the rest of the story.
"And when Catalina left your ass, you got all greedy and decided to terminate the deal."
I looked at him.
"Am I right?"
He kept silent, but I could see it in his eyes, eyes which seemed like they were hiding something, or refusing to admit something. Either I was right, or there's something else, in any way I got off the bench, about to take my leave.
"I hope you do realize that I rescued you for personal reasons right? Minxie has a lot of anger pent up for you, I want her to kill you and only her. Next time, don't expect me to save you."
And then I left, using one of the board's doors.
So yeah, I had fun and apparently, Dimir has decided to throw his hat into my and Incognito's little game.
You're not welcome here Dimir.
