The More... Unlikely Heroes - Chapter 3
Jeff sat in the corner of the room, beside the closed window. The girl was sleeping soundly. So sweet, so gentle. She, the lamb, he the wolf. He turned his head away, the sight disturbing distant memories. He forced them back down, deep inside himself. He must not let anything distract him. Not tonight. Of all nights, not tonight.
After all, there would always be one idiot who ignored his fellow assassin's screams, the warnings from the distinctly disturbing Rake and the rabid dog with the sinister smile. One person who would run through it all, hoping to play hero. Jeff watched the door now. Heroes always died. It didn't matter where they were- except from Hollywood movies. But they were an exception, they always stretched the truth. Real heroes? Nah, they're dead within a few seconds. Being heroically stupid. That was their trademark.
A loud thump emanated from outside, in the hallway. Jeff looked up, face a smiling mask. The kid stirred as the door creaked open. Jeff drew his knife

Jeff huddled, with the others, of course, in a garden shed. It was a very good shed, full of tools, as any self-respecting shed would be. It also made it a whole lot harder to fit them all in.

Assassination was a big deal. This one, poor kid, had at least nine of the sneaky buggers on them. Jeff had taken it upon himself and his team to save this child.

A small group of silhouettes gathered in a clearing. Why, was unknown to any viewer. Most onlookers would think it was simply a gang and just run off. If one were to look closer, one would find slight oddities in each. Well, I say slight, some had drastic differences from the normal human.
The clearing they had assembled in was surrounded by ruins. Of what, exactly, was unknown.
There was silence for a while. Awkward silence that contained nervous glances at each other. Before the first person spoke.
“So...” Everyone's eyes (or at least, those that had them) turned on him. The boy was wearing a white hoodie, with wide, black-rimmed eyes, leathery skin, long, black hair and a wide grin cut into his face.
Another, this time with a mask hiding it's face, spoke. “Well, Jeff?” The voice asked. It almost sounded like a clown's. Well, that was how it sounded at the current time. Eyeless Jack's voice changed often.
Jeff's unblinking eyes turned on him. “So, my dea
