I thought it would be cool, to have like, a section, where we could be our characters, and hang out, and create drama.... I'll start:

"She walked down the street, confident, but aloof, mightily, though as if on a cloud. She sat on a solitary park bench, in her red silk dress, and stiletto heels, when....

"....Shadisius is going to be after one of you two," Bernie said quietly, "I, uh, can't tell you which one. You guys have to be careful, because one of you...is gonna have some trouble with him."

"Is this the same person who Shadisius was after in the beginning?" Tali asked suspiciously. She didn't like the fact that she was walking right into Shadisius plans.... or was Isabel? Talianna wasn't sure who Shadisius was after.

Bernie shifted his eyes from side-to-side. "I, uh, am pretty sure, yes, I, uh, guess..."

"Well? Is Talianna or me gonna be killed!?" Isabel persisted.

"Fine, fine, whatever, it'só" but before Bernie could say who it was, something blunt hit his head and he fell to the floor. Shadisius was right there! With no time to lose, Isabel grabbed Tali and they ran out of the dark corner to another corner near the dumpster.

"We don't know who he wants!" Talianna whispered fiercely.

"We know it's one of us! But which one!?" Isabel said fearfully. All of a sudden, Shadisius passed by them whispering the name.....

(Who's it gonna be??) ;)

"Rumplestiltskin"

They could hear his evil laugh as he slithered down the alley. "You didn't think you were gonna get off THAT easy, did you," he hollered back at them. "I'm not done playing with all of you. Think it's one of you two? Maybe it is, and maybe it isn't."

He disappeared around the corner, a shadow blending into the shadows.

Talianna and Isabel looked at each other. Partly they felt a sense of relief. If it was one of them, their time hadn't come yet. And they felt dread. How long was he going to drag this game on? How long until they knew who his intended target was?

They headed down the alley and ran headlong into...

"Shady....."

Talianna cursed. Isabel bit her lip in frustration.

Talianna suddenly realized that she had a walkie talkie on hand. She grabbed it when Shadisius was out of sight. She held the transmission button tightly. "Ben! Shadisius has knocked out a guy named Bernie, who told us Shadisius is after one of us. Reply quickly!"

Ben replied, "Bernie? He's the bartender in London! How'd he appear here?"

Talianna gasped. "Uhhhh... I dunno. He just... surprised us."

"Just hide. I can't give you anymore help. Good luck." Ben crackled out.

Isabel was shivering. "He's after either you or me. Was that Bernie guy actually from London?"

Talianna nodded. "Yeah. He's not...dead, right?"

Isabel shook her head. "Unconscious."

Talianna sighed. "Our luck has run out, Isabel. Shadisius is going to kill one of us. Probably me."

Isabel closed her eyes. "No, he's after me."

Talianna looked shocked. "Why?"

Isabel turned to face her. "Because----"

She was interrupted by the sound of Shadisius. He was coming back from wherever he went, this time with his brother.

"Where did those idiots go?" Shadisius snarled.

Shady lit a cigarette. "Why are you after them? They're just harmless gumshoes."

Shadisius growled. "One of them knows a secret that could send me to the electric chair," he snapped.

Shady laughed. "Not poor, harmless Bimby. The lonely street peddler." He cackled in a horrible, grizzly manner.

Shadisius slapped his back. Shady's cigarette popped out of his mouth as he toppled to the dirty ground - choking.

"You are such a sap, you know that? Now, find me the girls or YOU'LL be the one in the electric chair!"

Shadisius stormed down a corner, leaving his brother groping for breath. Just then.............

Rhiemma stepped out of the shadows cast by an old dumpster. After making sure Shadisius was actually gone, she squatted down beside Shady. As he sat up trying to catch his breath he growled, "What... are... you... looking at?"

"Seems to me I'm looking at someone who's bit off more than he can chew." She replied. The humor left her eyes as she said, "I seem to recall that you came to me once or twice because you had a friend who needed my help. And yet, you charge outrageous prices for your fixin'. I oughta just leave you here in the slime where you belong."

"I don't need no... help... from no two-bit gumshoe!" he sputtered as he was finally getting his wind back. "I charge what I charge and you'll pay it. Nobody else'll do what I can do for youse." He started to get to his feet only to drop again with a startled cry of pain. He grasped his ankle and glared at her.

"Well, my slime-ball friend, it appears that you have done something to your ankle. What''ll it be? You want to sit here in the muck? Or shall I help you into that building your brother just left? I'm going there anyway to check on Bernie. I don't think this is exactly the way he planned to spend his vacation."

Shady glared at Rhiemma a moment then asked, "What's in it for youse that you'd help me?"

"Well, seems to me that you aren't exactly behind your brother 100% on this little vendetta of his. What's it gonna hurt to give me a hint of what's going on? Not like I'm gonna tell him anything. Let's just call it a trade of favors. Next time you have a friend that needs a murder solved, it's on the house. Sounded to me like your brother's plans could spell trouble for you if things don't go his way. Best thing would be for us to get him before he gets us. That way you're in the clear and we'll still be around to pay your sky-high fixin' fees."

He thought for a moment and reached a hand out for her to help him up. "Not so fast!" Rhiemma said. *more*

"I want at least a tidbit before you move so much as an inch from the spot your sitting in."
"What? You don't trust me?" he asked.

"Yeah, Shady, I trust you. About as far as I could throw this building by it's front door knob." Rhiemma replied. "Other than that I trust you to fix things you're paid to fix."

Shady looked obstinant for a moment, then he sighed. "Alright. Shadisius did a job a while back for the Green Hand. I don't know the details," At Rhiemma's snort of disbelief he held up a hand. "I swear!" Rhiemma said mockingly, "Yeah, like a sailor." His face contorted a little and he said, "I swear by the money I make from youse guys! If I'm not telling the truth, I'll do a fixin' job for you for free!" Rhiemma looked at him in disbelief. "Huh! There's levels and then there's levels of truth. But, I'll take your word so far." she said.

"Help me up now!" he demanded. "Why?" Rhiemma asked. "I got what I wanted from you." Shady swore a blue streak as she stood and made as if to walk away. "There's more! There's more, damn you!" Rhiemma turned back and looked at him. Then she reached out a hand to help him up. "Start talking, because I will have no problem at all dropping you like the unwanted trash you are if you don't."

As Rhiemma helped Shady make his slow way back to the old office building, he started talking. She knew she would have to pick out the kernals of truth from the flotsam he was spouting, but one thing he said stuck foremost in her mind. Whatever job he had done for the Green Hand was something he could go to the chair for. And Talianna or Isabel had the clue but didn't know it. Or did they?

She focused again on what Shady was telling her. Another interesting piece of information was...

....that Shadisius was related to one of the detectives.

"Related? how?" Rhiemma asked.

"I, uh, mean, he used to be one of your gumshoe pals' friend.... or was he a boy friend?" Shady said thoughfully. "Like, back in San Diego he was one of their friends or somethin'. What was her name......"

"You're sure it's a 'she'?" Rhiemma asked suspiciously.

"Positive. But I don't know if it's the same person he's after... that could send him to the electric chair, I dunno...." Shady went on.

"Um, none of the detectives I know ever lived in San Diego..." Rhiemma said to herself.

"Actually, there was one." Tali was there along with Isabel. "Me."

"Talianna? You were Shadisius' girlfriend!?" Rhiemma asked, surprised.

"He said his name was James and that he was asscoiated with the bank there... He really could be charming at times... until I realized his trick. I saw him steal from someone and kill them afterwards for being a witness. That's why I came to New York... to track him down," Tali whispered fiercely.

"Sooooo, is he after you?" Rhiemma said.

"Well...." Isabel began.

((check out my detective's bio, and it'll probably be clearer to you guys.... I just had to add that in!))

"Manfred Gesling, the Priest, never told you guys that I'm a distant, distant, DISTANT niece of his. And... ya know how Shadisius is Manfred's nephew... I'm sortta (in a distant way) RELATED to him."

Rhiemma and Talianna cried in disbelief. "You're his..."

"Around the lines of a distant cousin. And I accidentally stumbled upon his little "secret" a few years ago. A beautiful ring from Peru, belonging to one of his friends...went missing. Shadisius (James) stole it and...I found out. I...saw him carrying it around one day. I couldn't believe it, but there ya go. And he knew I knew. So...he wants to kill me so I don't run to the cops and end his career and possibly his life."

Isabel began weeping. Shady, in spasms of pain, clasped the poor girls hand. "Isabel... don't worry. I've always hated my brother. We'll put an end to his stupidity."

Isabel, sprinkled in tears, suddenly gasped. "Oh my gosh!! Mukunzu was Oliver's girlfriend!"

Rhiemma turned to face her. "Mukunzu? Oliver?"

Talianna put her hand to her lips. "Oliver... James's best buddy. Oh gosh, Isabel... I know..."

Shady straightened. "Mukunzu Brewster was Oliver Flaharty's girlfriend. Oliver Flaherty was murdered a few years ago. A famed detective rumored to have recovered the priceless antique: the Jade Ring of Peru. The ring was stolen...Oliver's life taken...my brother was responsible."

Isabel frowned. "Mukunzu lived in Africa all her life."

Shady shook his head. "Not ALL her life. Ten years ago, she came to America and met Oliver."

Rhiemma laughed. "Mak has a sister? Impossible!"

Shady sighed. "B-R-E-W-S-T-E-R. Not B-R-E-W-E-R. Mukunzu, though a relative of Makensie's in a bizarre way...was not her twin. Actually...the girl was adopted by Makensie's parents."

"How do you know this?" Talianna asked.

Shady smiled. "Because, even though it's unbelievable, I am................"

Also a Brewster relative."

Shady lets a erie laugh leave his lips.

Meanwhile across town another trio enters Big lucy's Cabaret.

"Wheres Big Lucy?" asks Mak to the bouncer.

"Who's askin?" ask Bruno the Bouncer.

"We are." says Charie while opening his coat and pointing to his pistol.

"Oh, she,s in tha back talkin to Freddy tha Finger le me go get her." said Bruno.

"That's alright we'll go." says Lucian.

as the trio makes their way to the back Charlie nudges Lucian and says " Were being followed I noticed a black sedan out side that seemed to get here when we did. Then that guy over there the one who looks interested in us but not too interested in us got out. He's been eye'n us since he walked in." Lucian says " yeah I got him you go see if there is anyone special in the car I'm gonna go pay visit to our friend there and Mak you go see if you can talk with Big Lucy and Shadette okay?"

Lucian heads over to the guy who came in after them and ask's him quite bluntly why he's following them. The man answers " I dunno what your talkin about get lost pal"

Lucian says " look PAL I know your following us who are you working for? Tell me and I will make sure you dont get busted up by old Bruno over there."

The man runs off towards the back alley with Lucian right behind.

meanwhile Mak's back talking with Big Lucy.

"Where's Shadette at?" asks Mak

"aint seen her in a couple days." replies Big Lucy

"Come on Lucy I know you know where I can find her then, right?" Mak says.

" Yeah check out the old house on 3rd and 12th." said Big Lucy

just then the man comes busting through and slams into Big Lucy but keeps on running with Lucian right behind him. Lucian stops as the man jumps the back fence and runs off down the alley. "Did you get thing?" ask Lucian abit out of breath. "Yep I know where Shadette is, wheres Charlie?"

as Charlie made his way toward the car he comes around a dumpster to see a man the man looks like..?

...Milton the Shoe maker! He's bound and gagged and tries to alert Charlie.

"What are you doing here!?" Charlie asks as he unbinds him. Milton pants.

"I-I need to tell you... something..." Milton pants.

"What? WHAT!? Tell me!" Charlie demands.

"It's... it's about Shadette... she... she....."

Charlie inspects it and finds...............
