Summary:

Rebel gets in touch with Jamie.


"Rebellious Warnings"

Fred's Apartment — Brooklyn

In the mornings, Jamie's doing lots of different things, but in the afternoon it's Olympics, as soon as the coverage comes on the air. Right now, though, it's hockey on the coverage as the US women's team is beating Sweden rather soundly. Jamie still sits and watches, but she's drawing too, which has most of her attention.

Trent has been gathering all kinds of pictures, out of the paper and catalogs and ads that come in the mail. Of course by now he's learned he has to wait till the paper has been read before he can cut and hack and glue, but he's added more things to his notebook. So many different things, places he'd like to see things he'd like to do. As well as their regular school lessons. He's on the floor near the TV listening to the Olympics as well as he's going through the latest set of things to add to the notebook. Spending some time in the Library, he's even gotten some pictures of things off the internet printed out.

The Olympics are pretty exciting to many people, and not everyone would be pleased to have their regular programming so rudely interrupted, but Micah wants to get in touch with Jamie, and, from the cellphone she'd contacted him with, he'd managed to trace her to this particular address.

The cellphone she'd contacted him at vibrates violently as the mario theme is emitted from its speaker indicating that its just received a text message:

« REBEL: JAMIE? ARE YOU THERE? »

Jamie, on hearing the music, hops up and moves to pick up the phone from where Sydney left it. Grinning, she sits back down, kneeling by the coffee table and resting her elbows on it as she uses her thumb to type a response, 'I'm here.'

Trent hears the cell and finds it odd that A: he hears it over the TV and B: Jamie is answering Syd's phone, he would never do that. He watches her idely a few, "What are you doing?" remembering Syd's warning about talking to people. "Aren't we supposed to be on the run? In hiding?" But he's not moving to stop her, what can he do? Not too much.

Micah grins a bit at the response. « REBEL: HOW ARE YOU? THINGS ARE PRETTY CRAZY RIGHT NOW WITH THE REBELLION. LEARNED SOME BAD STUFF ABOUT THE ALPHA PROTOCOL. » And his parents. He hasn't had the heart to tell anyone other than Cass, Lachlan, and Gabriel about that, and he's still not convinced they believed him.

« REBEL: STAYING SAFE? »

Jamie grins to Trent and says, "It's ok, it's Rebel. He's my friend." She looks back to the screen of the phone and starts typing again. 'Whats going on? What u learn?' Then she sends a second message in answer to Rebel's other, 'I'm safe. & not locked in!'

Trent lifts a brow, but just shrugs it off a bit. "Oh, ok." Still not too sure, but he lets it go, for now. Doing most of his picture cutting over a small trash can these days, so he doesn't have to use the vaccum so much after his first fiasco. His current one being a sail boat.

Micah grins at Jamie's response.

« REBEL: GLAD TO HEAR IT! I'M GLAD THAT YOU'RE SAFE AND FREE. ME TOO. HANGING OUT WITH THIS GUY. » This guy who kidnapped him and tried to pawn him off to the Alpha Protocol.

« REBEL: THERE ARE MORE PROTOCOLS THAN JUST ALPHA. THERE'S MORE GOING ON THAN WE ORIGINALLY THOUGHT. IT'S NOT JUST A HOLOCAUST, JAMIE. THERE'S MORE TO IT THAN THAT. A LOT MORE. »

« REBEL: WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO? PRACTICING I HOPE. :) »

Jamie types back, using both thumbs now as she's typing more, 'Why they doing it? What they want?' She looks up to Trent and says, "He's the one who put me on TV." She's shown Trent her little TV appearance by this point, of course, from YouTube. She goes back to typing, 'Practising a lot. Watching olympics, 2. Staying here a long time.'

Trent grins at that recollection, "Oh ok. Cool." Glueing the back of the sailboat and tucking it in his notebook. Where he can find a spot that it'll fit. Something that has and keeps his attention other then the school work. Keeps the ADHD down a lot.

Micah frowns at the questions.

« REBEL: THEY'RE WANTING TO USE US AS WEAPONS. WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T GET CAUGHT. » At this Micah nods. He sighs heavily before shaking his head, « REBEL: WE'VE BEEN WHERE WE ARE FOR AWHILE NOW TOO. THINGS SEEM RELATIVELY SAFE ON OUR END RIGHT NOW. WHERE ARE YOU STAYING? AND WHO WITH? »

He presses his lips together. « REBEL: I'M GLAD YOU'RE DOING GOOD. I'M SORRY WE PUT YOU ON TV. I HAVEN'T ALWAYS MADE THE BEST DECISIONS. I'M DOING BETTER NOW. LOOKING FOR JUSTICE INSTEAD OF SPREADING HOPE. »

Jamie answers, 'I'm with Sydney my therapist & her friend Fred. Sydney hiding too, Fred hiding us. Normal boy here too. Trent. He's cool. Thought he killed me first time he saw me change.' She giggles a little as she types this last sentence. 'Liked being on TV. After this won't hide again.'

Trent isn't paying attention, not that he could, really anyway.. Hungry again though, what is it with this boy and food? He hops up and disappears into the kitchen, only to return shortly with a sandwich and a glass of milk. As well as munching on a couple slices of lunch meat on the side.

Micah frowns for a second. "Where are you, Jamie?" he asks the phone without typing the words. Instead, he focuses his ability on locating the location of the phone. And then he begins looking through apartment records. And one name stands out. Something that may or may not be coincidental.

« REBEL: IS YOUR THERAPIST'S FRIEND NAMED FRED FLINT STONE? »

Micah's openly frowning now as he bites his bottom lip.

« REBEL: HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN THERE? »

Jamie looks up to Trent and asks, "Can I have a piece of that, please?" She types more, 'Yep! Funny name, but he's nice. Been here since Jan. Found Sydney after I got shot and she ran way from her place & took me here to hide.'

Trent grins and nods and leans over handing her the other piece. He then settles in to munch and continue his project. At least with a semi normal diet again, he's looking a lot better then he did the day he arrived here. True rosey cheeks, not from the cold. At least he wasn't sick or something when he arrived.

Micah hmms quietly. Why is an AP agent keeping Jamie in his house that long? It makes no sense. No sense at all. But it would be irresponsible of him not to tell her, right?

« REBEL: LOOK I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS OR NOT, BUT YOUR THERAPIST'S FRIEND FRED. HE WORKS FOR THE ALPHA PROTOCOL. I DON'T KNOW WHY HE WOULDN'T HAVE TURNED YOU IN BY NOW. »

Micah blinks blankly at the screen.

« REBEL: I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE SAFE. »

Jamie grins as she takes the piece, "Thanks." She takes a bite, then stops and her eyes widen as she sees the message that comes in. She starts typing immediately, 'That's hwy he had a gun! Said was 4 safety.' Then she pauses a moment, biting her lip, before she adds, 'I'm safe. Fred's nice. Bet he's a spy. Or maybe they make him work there. He's a doctor & nice.'

Trent grins, "You're welcome." then really isn't paying too much attention after that, as he's back to the job at hand and eating. Though he glances back a time or two, just to grin at Jamie. "Too bad there wasn't a safer way to talk to him then over the cell. I heard that cops and FBI can tap ino cell phones." he says finally.

Micah reads the text and breathes a little easier. He smiles weakly and nods.

« REBEL: ALRIGHT. YOU'RE SMART AND I KNOW YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING. I'LL BE IN TOUCH AGAIN SOON AFTER I FIGURE OUT WHAT ELSE WE NEED TO DO. I PROMISE. JUST WANTED TO CHECK IN BEFORE THINGS GET TOO CRAZY HERE. »
Micah yawns before he sends one last text,

« REBEL: TALK TO YOU SOON. STAY SAFE. REBEL, OUT. »

Jamie nods quickly and says, "Bet they can! But they can't when he calls. Otherwise they'd have caught everybody long time ago." She types then, 'Thks! I'm fine. Call again soon. Bye!'

Trent nods, a bit in understanding, but not fully, "Oh." is all he offers, not sure what else to say really. "If he's into making films and untraceable calls, must be he's pretty smart." Smarter then Trent could possibly ever be that's for sure. After he finishes off his sandwhich and milk, he takes care of his dishes and returns to take care of his things.
