    The Angel realised what was happening. An execution.
    The person seemed to be called the Jack of Spades. A villain, it seemed.
    The Fallen Angel focused on the stage, before the black smoke started moving around them. They moved through the air, too fast for any camera or eye to see, landing right behind the man.
    Taking out their sword, they snapped their fingers, drawing the attention of the crowd, and the Jack of Spades.
    "Stop. Right. There." They said.

    Shane was surprised. He quickly cranked the probability of him dying as low as it would go, as this newcomer seemed dangerous. "Who the hell are you? This is none of your business." Shane's goons all had guns trained on the newcomer, but they all seemed wary. they saw him appear out of nowhere in a cloud of black smoke behind Shane. But, Shane had a plan.

    "Vain?  Dear is that you?"  Granny came from the hallway wearing her apron and wiping her hands on a towel.  "It is so good to see you child.  How have you been?  Do stay for dinner won't you?"  There were a few other feline friends roaming about Granny's modest little apartment.  Walking in to the kitchen she offered the girl something to drink, pouring herself some tea.  "Now, what brings you over today?  Do tell!"

    "I'm the guy who's putting a stop to this little execution."
    A trigger happy goon fired at the angel. The bullet bounced off their arm.
    "Unless, of course, you're capable of doing that yourself.
    Part of the angel suddenly didn't want to fight the madman. He shut out the part, focusing on getting the job done.

    Vain reappearing, having shucked the armor and tucked it nearly away. "I'd love to!! I don't get too many good meals," said Vain with a small smile. "I got an offer," started Vain, brushing her hair away from her face. "I was offered to become an advisor to the Jack of Spades today. I'm wary because I know what he has done, but his offer was very compelling. I wouldn't need to steal my food, and I wouldn't have to worry about you being caught with me, not that you aren't capable of defending yourself. I'm just a bit unsure."

    "Ah, my friend, as much as i would love to spare this filthy, no good rat's life, examples must be made. Lessons must be taught. A king must rule his kingdom." The bullet pinging off his skin was unsettling, but Shane was a good bluffer, and hid his surprise well. But, his distraction would soon come to fruition. He essentially boosted the probability that the false floor would go faulty, dropping the man to hang, which would hopefully distract this righteous bastard long enough for Shane to escape. He gave a slight hand signal to his men that meant escape, and pulled the final pin in the universe that would hang the rat.
    He fell, and began to suffocate.

    The Angel cut the rope, causing the man to collapse to the ground, coughing and spluttering. The man seemed to be in terrible condition, and in need of a doctor regardless of the hanging. Sadly, there was no time. It'd be something this Jack of Spades would have to answer to.

    "Oh dear, an offer you say?"  Granny listened to Vain's tale, while plating up some delicious homemade ravioli and meatballs.  She didn't have much, but she was always willing to share what she did have.  She placed a basket of italian bread on the table with some softened butter.  "If it were me, and I know it's not, I wouldn't sell my soul to that Jack of Spades fellow for a few measly bucks.  Money, while helpful in life, is the root of all evil and greed."

    Granny didn't want to preach to the girl, who had befriended her one dark night in the alley way across the street. "I know you can take care of yourself, but think twice about what you may be getting into."

    Vain ate gratefully, considering Granny's words. "I'm not sure what to do. In one hand, it's a great opportunity, but on the other, what will I become? What will I have to do?" Vain had slowed down, thinking.

    While the mystery man was distracted, Shane and his crew made a break for their squad of SUVs, pulling out onto the road. "Jesus, that was a disaster!" Shane was worried. Some of these new guys are strong, too strong. "Floor it! I'll keep us safe!" he yelled at his driver.

    After dinner, Granny cleared the table and offered Vain some spumoni for dessert.  "Well, I suppose Vain if you do move forward with the offer, you can always gain insight to his bigger plans.  You know, keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."  Just then there was a knock on the door.  Granny picked up her purse and pulled a very large crowbar out of it.  Walking to the door she said sweetly, "Who is it?"

    "Maintenance," a husky voice called from the other side. She looked at Vain and smiled. Opening the door she immediately conked the would-be robber on the noggin' and watched him drop to the floor. She closed the door and placed the crowbar on the side table. "I better call the real Maintenance man to pick him up." She giggled a bit, unfazed.

    Vain ate the spumoni, watching as Granny knocked an attempted robber out. Vain smiled at her comment. "I think you may be right," she said, thinking on the keeping enemies close phrase. "I'll consider the offer."

    "Do you need some shelter, Vain?  I know you like to be a free spirit.  But if you need a place, you are welcome to rest on my couch.  It is a little lumpy, and you may have to fight a few cats for it, but it's certainly more comfy than the cold, hard streets."

    The Fallen Angel threw the blade at one of the many goons, piercing their skull. Taking their gun and his sword, he pursued the squad of vans. He didn't know which once was the Jack, but as long as he kept them away, it'd help.
    Teleporting onto the roof of one of the vans, he hung off the side and shot at the tires, popping them. He quickly teleported to another, doing the same. Jumping off the vans, he watched as all but two of the trucks survived the chaos caused by the trucks crashing into other trucks causing a domino effect.

    Shane's van went rolling off the road, but thanks to some quick thinking, he landed upright with his door hanging open. He took out his phone as he made a break for a tight cluster of buildings. He dialed a number, one of his underbosses. "I need a helicopter on my location RIGHT NOW!" He began tuning the probability matrix to reduce the time it would take for the copter to arrive. Meanwhile, he began climbng the stairs to the roof of one of the buildings, pistol in hand.

    Mikhail teleported to a roof, watching the chaos happen below. Another ten thousand on the bounty on his head. More trouble for him.
    He saw the Jack of Spades start to escape and watched. It was all he could do. Man seemed to have luck of the Irish. Assuming he was Irish.

    He probably wasn't.

    Vain considered the offer. "Thank you, Granny. I think I may take you up onthat offer," she responded, smiling. She couldn't remember the last time she'd slept on anything other than the street and occasional pile of clothes.

    Granny smiled.  She enjoyed Vain's company, and energy.  She was a fierce young woman, a survivor, and yes, a loner.  Much like Granny herself.  A sort of misfit family if you will.  

    Granny finished in the kitchen before fetching a pillow and blanket from the hall closet for the girl. "Here you go, dear. Make yourself at home."

    Granny didn't have much. Not even a television. But she did have a small radio and lots of books. She would spend hours in her rocker reading about all the wonderous places and people that books could transport you to.

    She locked the front door, the bolt lock, door knob lock, and chain lock. Then she made a hand gesture in front of the door, a safety sigil. One by one she dimmed the lights, and left a nightlight on in the hall for Vain.

    "It was a lovely evening. I shall see you in the morning."
    The old woman quietly headed to her room, with three cats in tow. Two remained in the parlor with Vain.

    Vain smiled, and moved to the parlor. One cat glared at her from the couch. "Come on, move over," she said, gently moving the cat from its spot. She laid down on the old couch. Lumpy, yes. Better than the streets? Yes. Vain pulled the pillow under her head and wrapped up in the blanket. She quickly slipped into a peacefully rest.

    The copter picked up Shane, taking him back to the building where his office was housed. He went in, took a shower, and sat down at his desk. He called one of his underbosses to his office, and the man came in and sat down. Shane explained what he wanted. "I want a million-dollar bounty on that bastard who broke up the show. And, I want an additional half-million added on every week. I want him brought in alive. Got it?"
    "Got it."
    "Go." The man left, and Shane poured himself a Jameson's to take the edge off. He finally made the call to this "Hidden one."
    He listened to the phone ring, waiting for them to answer.
