In turn she receives the deep devotion and unwavering dedication of BANE RIQSTON, the department’s most hearted officer.

Xeina attempts to soothe her brother while she prays for the best and prepares for the worst. Night turns into day. Xiena miraculously doses off in the midst of her anxiety with Cyon in her arms. But just as dreams of home begin to comfort Xeina, the sounds of her masked kidnappers nearing the rear of the van alert her. Stunned by fear Xeina cooperates when the figures demand her and Cyon exit the van in the middle of no where. Cyon,emotionally frail, annoys the aggressive and rude FIGURE ONE with his cries to the point where Figure One’s ally and friend FIGURE TWO intervenes to protect the young protagonists. Irritated by Figure Two’s disloyalty, Figure One knocks him out cold with a single blind sighted punch.
Back in the suburbs, Bane struggles to aid Rebecca. With a cold heart, Rebecca offers little to nothing about her past to assist Bane in his service to her and her children. Suspicion arises. Surging through his body, Bane’s instincts urge him delve more intensely into Rebecca’s vague past despite CHEIF CLIFTON, Bane’s stern and rigid superior, warning him to stick to the “book”.
The day seems to pass slowly. After knocking Figure Two out cold, Figure One forces Xeina to drag Figure Two’s unconscious body back to the van while he savagely handles Cyon. Exhausted after securing Figure Two into the van, Xenia clutches Cyon while being pressed against the farthest corner in the rustic white van away from Figure one.

Figure One continues to drive while the trio is are in the back at odds. Miles desperately tries to explain to Xeina that he had no idea the extremes of the job he was enlisted for and that he only took the job to save his baby brother Christian’s life.

Just as a calm overtakes the trio, Figure One makes his way to the back of the van pissed to find Miles’ arms wrapped around Xeina. Cyon is fear stricken and begins to cry.

Feeling no need to disguise who he is any more, Figure One removes his mask and reveals himself as KEITH, another childhood friend of Xeina . He opens up about his smitten past for her and. Keith shows no remorse for his actions, only a strong determination to see the job through for the sake of financial gain.

In the basement of the Lawrence home Rebecca finds a burner phone with a single out of state number saved and a separate slip of paper with a number that frightens Rebecca, (623) 666 - 1489. Stagnant and idle Rebecca stares at the burner phone and the slip of paper. What number to call first? Rebecca Rebecca takes the plunge and dials (623) 666 - 1489 only to hear a voice she dreads. Panicked, Rebecca calls the out of country number on the burner phone praying that the voice on the other end will be the one she so desperately needs to hear. XIER, Rebecca’s estranged husband, answers her call. The sound of his voice simultaneously brings comfort and despair.

As Rebecca’s memories subside in very few words she admits to Xier her need for him.
Bane is weary from his ongoing attempts to find a pathway to success. Anxiously waiting on his trusted aid, he heads home after a long day. As he climbs the stairs to his bedroom, undressing to get comfortable Bane is greeted by a figure stretched across his bed. A single bedside light is switched on and VONYA, a striking vixen who happens to be Bane’s “mole”, is revealed. Bane is startled and Vonya is amused. She chuckles at how easily Bane is startled and taunts him a bit. Vonya's playful words turn seductive but Bane’s mind is solely on his mission.

While she impatiently waits for him, Bane takes Vonya’s keys and jets to her car. Not sure of what he’s looking for, Bane carefully checks anywhere and everywhere until he lands on a combination secured suitcase. By God’s grace and his attentiveness to Vonya, Bane is able to crack the code and take photos of some useful files and documents before racing back to his room to free her.
Back at the lair Xeina sees an opening and goes for it. While the lair is still, Xeina wakes and calls to Keith softly. Finally waking him, Xeina tries to appeal to Keith. Softened by her gentleness Keith brings her out the cage and speaks to her candidly in the unwatched hallway of the lair. Sentiments are exchanged. As Keith whispers promises to keep Xeina safe and is overtaken by a much anticipated kiss, Xeina carefully takes keys from his pockets, keys that will aid in her escape.Ready to put an end to her daunting misery Rebecca makes a quick stop at the local police department to speak with Bane. Without explanation Rebecca plainly tells Bane to close the case. He insists on aiding her if she knows something he doesn’t. Rebecca politely declines Bane. As Rebecca takes her exit, Bane’s mind races and he realizes that tailing her is the only way he’ll close this case.
Vonya waits in her sports car under a single parking lot light for Rebecca to arrive. Expecting nothing less than what her Boss requested, Vonya struts over to Rebecca upon her arrival. Just as deals are being closed Bane arrives. Moving with haste, Vonya tries to shrewdly deceive Bane by explaining that she gathering intel from Rebecca on the case He’s asked her to work on. Feeling like a pawn, Rebecca asks a series of questions completely in shock.
