Hatters Here

I rush into the back room and close it behind me, I needed to call my fathers men. I grab a stool and drag it to the fridge, climbing it and grabbing the fake flour I had pushed to the back. Theres no way this was just a chance hit, no one has ever thought to steal from me. Time can't be wasted and I cant drag Victor into my drama.

It was like they knew I was alone. I shove my hand in, grabbing the case of my childhood throwing axe's and the burner. Rushing out the kitchen, I go to the closet body and look pointedly at the broken glass beside his body as I go through his pockets.

I pull out his phone and unlock it quickly using his thumb, looking though his messages until I see a familiar number. My sisters? I try to see if i can find any messages but it looked like everything was done in person or over calls.

I turn when I hear footsteps behind me only to meet eyes with an odd but familiar man. He stood tall with a top hat, dressed to the nines. "Who are-"

"Look into my eyes, not around them, not above them but deep into their center. Now sleep."

Sucka tried to play me
But you never payed me-

I turn off my alarm when it goes off, laying in bed a few more moments. I yawn and scratch my head, feeling a bandage wrapped around me.

I frown at that and try to think back to what happened yesterday. I sigh when it comes flooding back, i had gotten hurt on the job. I hum as I stand, ignoring the bruises on my torso as I stretch. I continue my merry tune as I go to shower, thinking about which route to take to work.

Getting ready is fast and simple enough, I take a quick shower, wash my face and get dressed. Making sure they managed to hide my guns decently, I stare in the mirror for a moment before leaving. I smile awkwardly at my neighbor as I leave but she just stared at me oddly.

I almost frown at that but keep my face neutral as I rush to my car and turn it on. Flipping through the radio stations as I let the car heat up, my cell goes off and I answer after muting the radio. "Good morning." I hum as I needlessly mess with my muted radio.

"I'm just making sure you're still coming in today, I know things were hectic yesterday but thats exactly why I need security."

"I know and I know what you're working on is very important, Mr. Strange. Thats why im already on my way, even brought an extra clip if people get handsy." I assure him, putting the phone on speaker. I set it in the cup holder as I start driving.

"Wonderful. I'll see you soon." Hugo hangs up before I can reply.
