      When the children came, they immediately flocked to their mothers, who hugged, kissed and doted on them. Angel got to watch the reunion for a few minutes before she was dragged away from the tent where they were being held and outside in the bright, bright sunshine.

      Angel only got a brief, few glances around before she was shoved inside a palatial estate of a house, at least for Mexico City.

      Angel wished she could say she wasn't impressed by the look of the place, the cleanliness, the fixtures and furniture, or the smartly dressed enforcers all carrying semi-autos, but she was. If she was a drug cartel lord, this was the way to live!

      "So where am I going anyway, Cheese?" she asked the man shoving her along with his gun.

      Instead of answering, the man shoved her along. Angel glared at him, and opened her mouth to stick her foot in it, when she heard someone growl, actual growling, and cursing in...Angel had to pause to catch it all.

      The former NYC cop, actually stopped in the hallway to listen, as did her guards, so at least there was no more shoving. Someone, definitely a female too, was cursing in Spanish, Russian, and French, and Angel even thought she caught snatches of Latin in there. It was hard to tell since the woman was yelling in a rapid staccato of cursing.

      If it wasn't for the fact that Angel was raised Catholic, she would have never caught the Latin at all.

      "Move on," said the man behind her finally.

      The only thing stopping Angel from taking his gun from him and show him the awesomely painful places she could put it, was the fact that she wanted to get to the bottom of what was happening here.

      Angel limped into the room and immediately spotted two men: one young and in a bad suit, and one old and in a leisure suit, along with a woman wearing her birthday suit - literally. It was a see-through plastic Lady Gaga affair with a "Happy Birthday" sash going across creative places.

      The woman was chained against a steamer trunk that was old and care-worn, and probably worth a few bucks all on its on in the antique market. The woman's arms were pinned back on either side of the truck, but her legs were free. She looked uncomfortable, but not too concerned about that.

      "You whore!" spat the man who had a nice set of scratch marks on the left side of his face. "You were brought here to dance for El Hefe, not steal from him! You are lower than a female dog in heat!"

      The man brought up a gun, and Angel knew she had to act fact. Loudly, Angel cleared her throat. "How low is that exactly?" she asked in Spanish. "Lower than a man who shoots a woman, who is chained to a trunk? I mean, check her out, Cochise, she's tied to that damn thing. What is she going to do? Neo her way out of the way of your bullets?"

      The man glared at Angel. Now, she had his attention as he swung his gun around and aimed it at her. She quickly lifted her arms. "Hey, whoa, my bad," she said in English. "Please commence with the low-down, dirty, bitch-dog shooting," Angel said comically with a grin. "I'll wait."

        Jake couldn't have been happier to watch his wife literally push their liason out the door. Senor Gomez was all pomp, and apparently didn't get what the team needed at all.

        He would get the boys to 'requision' some vehicles for them on their own once everyone was in. It was better not to be too dependant on anyone, just in case.

        "Huh, nice room" Jake deadpanned as he glared at the huge crucifix on the table in front of the bed. Not that he had planned on getting much amore while sorting a rescue, but way to guilt complex your clients. No wonder this inn was completely empty.

        Wilma's damnable phone went off as always but at least it was good news of sorts. Apollo and Gears were on their way, and somehow they pulled Chameleon out of England for this.

        It would be nice to have a member that originally sat at that table with him all that time ago. Jake thought about the members that didn't make it, and that list was ever growing.

        He must have been easy to read, at least to his wife because she was obviously thinking along the same lines. "Oh Jake, what are we gonna do if we can't bring Angel and Carlos home?" she asked as he held her in his arms.

        Jake's expression hardened for a moment, "We're bringing them home, honey. Ain't no ifs, ands, or buts... If we gotta' burn the whole damn forest down, we're bringing them home."

          Jason Calvin checks his phone one more time to double check the address.  He arrives at the Casa Escondido, looking at the building.  It wasn't much, but it would work.  He steped inside, getting his room and headed for it.  Opening the door, he set his bag down and stretched. 
           
          Exiting the door, he tried to find the rest of the team.
           
          "So, what's the plan?" he asked as he found them.

            This getting caught thing hadn't been as much fun as she thought it would be, Michelle mused to herself. Her arms were pinioned behind a steamer trunk, she had a gun pointed at her face, and the whole thing just seemed wrong. But hey, she thought, at least I'm not bored. Small victories. Another small victory: When she'd slipped up (on purpose, more or less), they'd used modern chains instead of manacles. This might actually be easier than she thought. 

            While she waited for the (ex-cop) prisoner to distract the guard, she went through a brief check over. So she was chained, her legs were free, her arms were pinned behind a steamer trunk, getting captured while wearing this birthday thing wasn't one of her best ideas. Michelle wouldn't have ever admitted that, but there it was. And here she was, staring down a gun for the first time in her life, trying very hard not to freak out, finally settling on some mixture of amusement and annoyance. The chain was thin, and she didn't have enough room to break it or wear it down, but she did have barely enough time to get her wrists unchained. 

            After pulling for a bit to test the strength, she kept the frightened expression (this was what she did, so she was definitely not frightened, but it was good to keep up appearances) She quickly popped her thumb out and relaxed her arms. She'd tensed them when she'd been bound (an old escape artist trick, something Houdini had used on ropes), and when they relaxed, combined with her dislocated thumb, it gave her a lot to move around with. Michelle worked her wrist in and out, biting the inside of her lip both to help sell her distress and not cry out in pain, thus alerting the guard to what she was doing. Finally, she felt like she'd worked her wrist free, and with another grimace, popped her thumb back in. And immediately made a grab for the guard's leg. "Quick! Grab the gun!" she yelled, hoping she could catch the guard before he could turn on her.

              Diana worked on her Spanish on the flight across the Atlantic, more of a refresher since she had learned it when she played a princess. It was a matter of accent and vocabulary, which she managed to get down fairly well by the time she touched down in Mexico City. She picked up her backpack and began jamming on her headphones like she was a student coming home from a vacation. Once she was off the plane she went to a bathroom and changed to a maid's uniform then went out the teminal and hailed a cab, "Casa Escondido, por favor."

              She wheeled the housekeeping cart down the hallway and saw a well-dressed man being pushed out of a room. He straightened his tie then stormed off in the opposite direction. Once he was gone she pushed the cart to the door, knocking and speaking in bad English, "Housekeeping, you need cleaning?" She waited a few moments before she said, "Okay, I come back later. You put on door when you want me back, claro?"" She put something under the door and started to push her cart down the hallway.

              The note was simple, "What do you want me to do?"

                Holy crap, thought Angel as the woman chained to the steamer trunk was suddenly free and assaulting their guard.

                "Quick! Grab the gun!" she yelled.

                Angel did just that, grabbing the gun out of the man's pants and then pistol whipping him into unconsciousness before turning and kicking the other guard in the knee cap bringing him down long enough to smack across the back of the head as well.

                The third guy ran for the hills, or more likely to raise the alarm and bring in more re-enforcements.

                Meanwhile Angel just turned to the woman who had suddenly just freed herself and launch them into World War 3. Angel gave the woman a squirrelly look, accessing her, before she handed the gun to the escape artist.

                "Uh, you better get going," the former NYC police officer said. "In fact, if you could do me a favor once you're free and hand a message off to some people, that would be great."

                Angel looked around the room and spotted an envelope on a nearby table. She quickly jotted down a note:

                At the edge of Heaven's Gate with God's Hammer.

                And then signed the note ANGEL.

                "Here, just take this to the UN Embassy; that's all I ask. And don't worry, I'll cover your retreat!"

                  "Riiight." Michelle popped her thumb out and shook the chain off of her wrist, then started to take off the restrictive plastic outfit so she could exchange it for a guard's uniform and maybe get a little more coverage. "I forgot how these things worked." The deadpan tone was fairly obvious in her voice.

                  Once the chain and the stripper outfit hit the bare dirt floor, Michelle pushed the gun aside. "You keep it. I don't like those things, I don't want them anywhere near me, and an ex-cop with a pistol probably has a better chance." She'd have to find where she hid her dart pistol. Another thing added to the list. She began to strip the guards for something to wear so she wouldn't be naked and walking the streets of Mexico. "But  whatever. I'll deliver your message if I go by there." She shook her head and walked towards the open door, doing a bit of math and some geography in her head to make sure she knew what was what. "The UN doesn't have a reason to hate me yet."

                    "Riiight."

                    Angel rolled her eyes and went over to the window to see how many people would be rushing in on them as Michelle did her thing. "I forgot how these things worked."

                    Angel came back to find Michelle giving her back the gun. "You keep it. I don't like those things, I don't want them anywhere near me, and an ex-cop with a pistol probably has a better chance."

                    Angel frowned. How did she know Angel was an ex-cop?

                    "But whatever. I'll deliver your message if I go by there," Michelle said as she stripped the man of his pants and shirt. Good God, Angel thought. The woman had an ass you could bounce quarters off! Angel shook herself just as Michelle shook her head and walked towards the open door.

                    "The UN doesn't have a reason to hate me yet."

                    "No, and if you deliver that message as asked, that might put you in their good graces. That could be valuable for a con like you," Angel said. She had been doing her own figuring about her newest "partner-in-crime." "But hurry. I can here El Hefe's men coming now."

                      Michelle laughed. "Con implies I've ever gotten caught." she shot back. "This was the first and only time...I'm trying something new." She didn't like the UN. She didn't really like what working for them implied, and what it would do to the international criminal community (who by this time already outnumbered the "good guys" five to one) if someone like her went legit. 

                      But...there was always a slim chance that working with the UN would be interesting...Michelle liked interesting...of course it would mean kissing her life goodbye, but she could retire on top-- perfect record, fantastic looks, and before she peaked and then got old and people started to wonder what she was doing in the business to begin with. 

                      She would play this game for a little while, see what it got her, and when all was said and done, then she'd drop it and walk away. Just like with any job. "You owe me, then." She said, dashing off away from the compound and towards the city.
