Thunder Bay, Ontario. May 1931

A getaway, ah, that's exactly what I needed.
Standing beside the crystal clear river, tugging at my fishing rod, I immersed myself in soothing sound of nature. I'd already caught four fishes, and it's only a little after sunrise. The crisp sky promised another beautiful, lazy day. Nothing can ruin the tranquility, when suddenly I heard the voice of Vulkie calling my name. I must have been hearing things. How could Vulkie be all in way up here?

"I'll go after Danita." Ace said boldly to Joseph as they walked down the sidewalk towards Mama Lou's suburban home.
"Ace... it's a dangerous job." Joseph replied warily.
"No," Ace told him, "I"m going to go after her in the way Vulkie would disapprove of."
Catching on, Joseph smiled slowly.
"After all," Ace continued, "What girl can resist this face?"
"Ha ha ha, Ace, ha ha ha." Joseph laughed sarcastically.

The pair reached Mama Lou's doorstep, expecting to find her body cold and stiff. To their surprise, she hollered for them to come in.

Ace stood back on her stoop as Joseph slowly opened the door. A kind looking old woman sat in a rocking chair facing the door. "May I help you?" She asked.
Stepping inside, Joseph nodded to his partner that all was well. Ace would wait for a minute before he left, to make sure Joseph needed no backup. When all appeared safe, Ace prepared for his first encounter with Danita Williams.

He headed straight to where the group discovered she'd be: drinking with her best battle buddy, Velma Foxx. They'd get a hair short of stoned and would then leave to go home. Ace went to the route where she'd be walking, and waited there for he to emerge from the bar.

Quarter til 7, she finally came out. He started casually walking towards her and, looking the other way, he bumped into her.

"Oh, I'm so sorry, little lady." He smiled.
She looked up at him and smiled. "It's no problem."
"I didn't hurt you, did I?" He chuckled.
"I don't get hurt." She smiled slyly.
"Oh, a fiesty gal. What's your name?"
"Danita." They chatted up, "And yours?"
"You'll have to call me sometime..." She paused, "Ace. My card."
"Well, thank you... I will." He turned and walked away.

((What girl could resist that face? I don't know of one off the top of my head, that's for sure!))

The next day came up for me. I had a nice breakfast,one of Joseph's famous omelets (boy,can that guy cook great ^-^. I wish Ace could cook as great as Joseph could do). I also had a nice glass of orange juice with it. I hugged Ace and Joseph and went out. Anais stayed at Ralph's place,so I didn't had to say goodbye to her.

As I walked on the street,I noticed someone following me. I ducked in the nearest alley and waited. I pulled my gun out and as soon as the person turned in the alley,I pulled the hammer towards me. "Don't move" I said. "It's me Miss,Elliot Ness." the man replied.

"Sorry Mr. Ness. Yesterday,I was followed. So I don't want to get kidnapped you know. Let's go to the police station,shall we?" Mr. Ness asked me. I nodded,placed my gun back where I took it from and followed him.

"Well Miss Vulkie,as I already asked you,how are you related to Mr. Capone?"

Srry guys,bit short part,will continue with it. I wanted to do a nice big part,but by accident,clicked on the post reply

"Well,I just came back from visiting my cousin,who is here by the way,in a jail cell. I was walking on the street,when I bumped into Mr. Capone. He liked me from the first moment. And so we developed a "relationship"." I replied to Mr. Ness's question.

"Hmm,I believe you. " He said. "I have a favor to ask from you. Can you carefully listen to me and give me your answer afterwards?" he asked. "Yes" I replied.

"I want you to be working undercover for me. We almost got Capone on tax evasion and we need a bookkeeper secured,to testify against Mr. Capone. Will you help me?" He said.

"I.... I'm honoured Mr. Ness. Being part of the "Untouchables" is like a dream for which most people would commit a murder. Not really,of course" I joked

"Welcome to the team." Mr. Ness said. He introduced me to his team. John Mallone, George Stone (An Italian) and Oscar Wallace,a Treasure department agent.

And so we started planning...

I made a phonecall to the gang,saying what happened and that I would be in Canada for a few days. They all agreed to let me go my way. Mr. Ness promised to release my cousin as soon as we got Capone. I was almost there....

Canada,27 June 1931.

We were planning with the mounties of Canada to ambush a liqour deal. As we were on place,the mounties fired and the gangster were shocked. We also fired and we made a good deal. 20 dead gangsters, 1 bookkeeper alive and we also got a big amount of Canadian Scotch (a little present for Joseph I suppose xD)

Chicago,28 June 1931.

We were back,with the bookkeeper in custody. As we all relaxed in Malone's office,we heard a thump. It sounded like a gunshot. Oscar escorted the bookie with a police officer.

As we ran downstairs,going in the alley and finding the elevator downstairs,Ness pulled the doors open. What we saw was terrible. The bookie,dead, and Oscar Wallace also dead.

"Touchable" was written in blood on the wallside.

Ness banged on the wall,Malone pulled him out of the elevator and I was shocked.

The police captain came looking and he also was shocked. Ness,Malone and I knew he was under Capone's thumb,so he "set" Wallace and the bookie up...

And so,we were still with 4 people instead of 5.

29 June 1931.

Got a phonecall of Joseph. No news yet about Williams or any other suspects. Ace made progress with her,getting in touch with Williams. I was a bit jealous and reacted to that. "Tell him I love him" I asked Joseph. He grunted and said it. Ace replied "Get back soon,miss ya".

As Ness,Stone and I looked in the bookkeepers notes,we couldn't decipher it. We needed an other bookkeeper from Capone.

As we were still studying it in the night, we got a phonecall from a neighbour from Mallone. She heard gunshots.

Mallone was on the trail of the bookie and knew where he was. We rushed to his apartment,only to find him heavily bleeding and breathing. He pointed towards a schedule for trains and he said "Well,what ya gonna do about it,huh!" towards Ness. And so he "departed" to his train...

*Meanwhile, back in boring old Chicago*

"WOW!" Ace exclaimed, as he pulled up at the house. Danita Willaims boom-chicka-boomed down her walk, in a sexy red gown and stilettos, her gorgeous orange hair flowing down in curls.
"Hello, dah-ling!" She giggled with delight as Ace chivalrously opened her car door. She stepped in, and they were off.
"Wow, Danita..." Ace smiled, "You look gooooooooood..."
She laughed, "Oh Ace..."
Ace was looking rather sporting, himself, in a tuxedo. They were headed to a fancy ball. You know the kind, where guests 'mingle' and don't double-dip.

They stepped inside the ballroom. Well, Ace stepped. Danita was quite happy looking gorgeous, and she decided to flaunt it. As ladies watched her in jealousy, and Ace smiled while sipping alcoholic beverages, Danita pranced around the large room, having a good old time.

When she was finished, she sat down with Ace, and they talked.

"So, Ace, what do you do?" She inquired.
"Well... actually... I'm a private investigator."
"A private investigator?" Ace noticed that she looked worried.
"Yeah, you know... the 'my husband is cheating on me, go take a few pictures and bring them back to me so when I find out I'll confront him and we'll argue and soon I'll pick up something heavy and kill him in a fit of rage' type investigator." Ace smiled.
Danita looked much more at ease, and laughed heartily.
"So, what do you do?" Ace playfully put his hand on his chin.
"Oh, hun..." Danita smiled, "Let's not mix business... with pleasure."

No, Vulkie would not like this. Vulkie would definitely not like this!

As the evening came to a close, Ace escorted his date back to their car.

"Ace, I had a wonderful time tonight!" Danita squealed.
"So did I." Ace smiled as he let her in the car.
"So," Danita started as Ace got in the car, "Do you have any interesting cases as a private eye?"
"Danita, really?" Ace chuckled, "You can only watch so many sleazy husbands."
Danita laughed, "Ever been caught?"
"Only once." Ace began, "I was trailing a cheating wife that time. I set myself up in the bathroom of their hotel room. Just when they started to get into it, I began crawling towards the bed. I jumped up, yelled surprise, snapped a few quick shots, and raced out the door."
"That's it?" Danita asked, disappointed.
"Well," Ace continued, ignoring her remark, "Usually they don't give chase in that situation. It's always dark, so I need the flash on, and it usually burns their eyes. So even if they wanted to chase me, they would have a hard time. But, the man jumped up out of bed and gave chase in the nude. I didn't think I had to keep running, so I stopped around the corner in the hotel lobby... where he tackled me. The clerk subdued him while I ran the hell out of there, but not before he demolished my camera."
"And you said there were no stories!" Danita giggled.
"Yeah, well..."

Suddenly, the car jolted forward. They had been stopped at an intersection, but another car rear-ended them. Their car rolled out into the busy intersection, where it was slammed from two directions by other cars. The car containing Ace and Danita flipped over and skidded down onto the sidewalk, finally coming to a grinding halt.

"How's it's going Anais, uh, i mean, Andrew..." I said sheepishly.

"That's alright Joseph, nobody can hear you over the phone." Anais replied quietly from the receiver, in her low-toned 'male' voice, "I've burrowed myself into Vinni's case. There are officers belonging to Capone on it as well, but i made sure the red hair remains in the evidence bag."

"Good! Does that mean if we get a sample of Danita William's hair, she'll be on the suspect's list as well?" I asked.

"Most probably. I'm sure Ace can get a sample off her for us. I heard that they're heading to a ball tonight, is that-- hold on a second," Anais was off the phone talking to an officer with urgency in his voice, she came back to the phone quickly, "Joseph! Bad news! Ace and Danita got into a car accident. Their car flipped over and both of them were found unconscious. They're now in the Cook County Hospital."

We hung up quickly and rushed to the hospital.
