Ali didn't understand exactly why Crys had commanded her to shoot. There was no opening that she could see. Ali fired the arrow anyway, and nocked a new one immediately. Hearing Perry's words she could tell he was sure of the outcome of this.

Jake smiled lightly when Crys moved in front of him. He knew what that was for, so he kept a close watch on her. Back before he was expelled and they worked together, Crys and Jake had come up with signs to communicate. Mostly because she simply couldn't go around talking to an invisible guy. Each sign represented a certain key word, and they were extremely subtle. Suddenly he caught two signs, one meaning "arrow" the other meaning "heart". Without hesitation he pulled out his sword and put the blade on the path of the incoming arrow. A split second later Crys moved and one of Ali's arrows hit the blade of the sword. At the same time as a statue fell down from the ceiling and crashed on the floor where she had been standing.

Crys sighed while Perry spoke, she wasn't sighing at his words though, but at Evin's reaction to them. She nodded, Perry's calculations of how this would end would very much accurate unless Evin snapped out of it. Before the first throwing knife was in the air, she made a signal to Jake behind her back, and as soon as the statue began to fall she moved. The sound of the arrow hitting metal caused a smirk to cross her face. This had been nothing, merely a provocation to her. Same she had done when making Ali shoot... She was simply testing the man's reactions. She faced him, and now she spoke. "You have been in the Pack long enough to have heard my mother say this at least once: Whenever a plan involves other people it will most likely fail. For someone who has been trained in so many things, you have learned very little." He assumed she was protecting Jake and the girl, and tried to use that. It was an incorrect assumption. She could see ahead of his moves... Jake couldn't. Simple as that.
