Crystal stood and listened to man's speech. He was wrong in his assumptions. Life was nothing like chess and she already knew what he could do. She knew it because she could sense that too, other than lowering her head for a second at the mention of her father she didn't react to the fact that Perry had mentioned him, even if it made her enraged beyond anything she ever felt before. She had long ago separated her feelings from her actions, almost to the point of numbness. It was necessary, but it sometimes made her feel slightly inhuman. Throughout his talking, she was thinking at possibilities... The odds were against them unless they were all in it together, and they weren't. Not quite yet.

When he mentioned the girl, though, Crys simply wanted to open a wide smile right there even though it never reached her lips. It was a cruel thought, but that girl being there was exactly what they needed. There was something Perry failed to consider... Three people in that room had survived his attempts to kill them. One could call that luck, fate, a miscalculation on his part... Didn't matter. If he could play them easily like he thought he could, they would be dead. That was a fact.

When Perry attacked the girl, and dragged her away from Jake, Crys silently ordered him not to move. She felt it in her skin how much following that order made him sick as he stayed concealed where he was. She didn't like it either, but in that moment she knew it was necessary... Hopefully it wouldn't cost the girl's life. Through all of the commotion Crys couldn't help but think she would make a great assassin. That, however, was a completely different matter to be discussed another time. She could pretty much tell what was going through everyone's minds while he took the girl away Jake. She knew for a fact how they felt about it, she knew how she felt as well... They weren't going to let her die.

Crys took a deep breath. Calmed herself as much as possible and, opened a slight grin. She was done talking, and in the moment she caught Evin's signal she gave Ali permission to shoot, and following the arrow aimed precisely at Perry's head, she advanced towards the man with both her Sai.
