Chapter 1

A warehouse Hudson Bay, New York.

In the nights of New York, the night sky by the buildings and the city helps bring life at night. Although the city was filled with light but not everywhere was filled with light. There are dark corners of the city, where the lights are never shown. In the darkness is where the horrible secrets the city has to offer. In a warehouse near the Hudson bay where around 6 armed men with Hecker &Koch MP5. They soon saw a black limo and  two Chrysler 300c coming up. The men point there guns until 8 men came out of the Chrysler and 5 men came out of the limo. The armed guards lower their guns at the sight of the other men. The men who arrived all where black leather jackets with black pants and black shoes. The other men had M16's, pistols, or shotguns and guarded one man from the limo. The man was short at 5'5 ft tall wearing a suit and tie, he was bald with wrinkled skin. He was also scrawny, as his hands were very thin with customs rings in each finger. The man and his guards walk toward the armed men and they let him and his guards walk inside. As the man and his guards enter the warehouse, one of the guards approach his boss

"Mr. Andropov, you sure this is a good idea?", the guard ask and his boss stops 

"Relax Dmitry I know what I'm doing", Mr. Andropov states as he and his 13 men entered the building after the 2 guards let them pass. The warehouse was dark with the only light coming down on a table with only two chairs. At the table was a man sitting at one end. He is wearing a black suit. He looks like a man in his late 30's or early 40's. He has a short beard with mustache combo. He has a smile on his face and signals him to sit down

"come sit", the man ask and Mr. Andropov sat in the other chair and Mr. Andropov sits down and looks around to see that the warehouse was pitch black and doesn't see anyone else inside.

"Where are your bodyguards?", Mr. Andropov ask

"Don't worry about that", the man responds. He had a thick eastern European accent, "I assume you came here for our agreement?", the man ask

"To be fair, I didn't want to come here", Mr. Andropov states as he place his hands together and stares at the man, "but one of your messengers actually got me interested in meeting you Mr Pohansky. ", he finished

"I'm glad that he did", Mr. Pohansky said with a smile and grab something from underneath the table and reveal a manila folder and gave it to Mr. Andropov. Mr. Andropov opens it and sees three pictures of a women and 2 males. Along with the pictures, there was also information about them. Of the three: two were siblings, Mira age 16 and Marcus Windrow age 19.  The last male was Andres Yankur age 16. Mr. Andropov read through the papers before closing the folder and looks at Mr. Pohansky. 

"After reading these files. My men can find the siblings but the Andres boy, he doesn't even live in New York", Mr. Andropov pointed out

"just make sure you have your men on the look out for all three of them", Mr. Pohansky states in a harsher tone and his face turn to stern and gets up, "just make sure you get them", he demands and Mr. Andropov got up himself 

"Your in no position to make demands", Mr. Andropov threaten and his guards point their guns at Mr. Pohansky. There was a moment of silence as the guards waited for Mr. Andropov's orders. Mr. Andropov kept his right hand up signaling his men to wait. While Mr. Andropov hopes that his men would intimidate Mr. Pohansky but Mr. Pohansky was now smiling evilly as if he wasn't impressed. He stays quiet until he snaps his fingers. Mr. Andropov and his men look around and see nothing. Mr. Andropov laughs and looks at Mr. Pohansky

"Did you forget to pay for your bodyguards", Mr. Andropov mock until a swipe sound was heard behind him. He turn around to see 6 of his men standing still until there bodies split in half from their waist. The other guards look everywhere trying to find whoever killed there companions. They couldn't find where the attacker is. Two of the guards move far away form the group. Once they were far enough. They are impaled in the chest. 

"arruugh", they gargled as they lay on the ground dying. The remaining guards are now shocked with with fear and start shooting at random. One by one the mysterious attacker kills all but Dmitri and Mr. Andropov. They look around to see Mr. Pohansky smiling at the carnage. 

"Well I hope this changes your mind", Mr. Pohansky ask with a smile and Mr. Andropov wipes the sweat from his face 

"um yyy-e-es my men will find these three individuals", Mr. Andropov responds nervously and he and his surviving guard and run out of the warehouse. After the they leave, the mysterious attacker appear behind Mr. Pohansky but remains in the shadow

"well done my friend. You certainly know how to persuade anyone", Mr. Pohansky said as he remain sitting on his chair. He then reach inside his inner pocket to take out copies of the pictures of the three teenagers he's looking for. He smiles knowing that he'll get his hands on the them very soon.
