The trio drifts into a quiet and peaceful sleep, the chirping of distant crickets and a soft drizzle filling the night. All at once, however, the quiet of the night inside the warehouse was shattered by a piercing gunshot, coming only feet away from the kids. It was followed by the shattering of a window, likely where the gun was shot at. Before they had any time to wake up and react to anything, all three of the kids were harshly kicked in the chest while they were down.

Once they were battered awake, the three of them would look around to see themselves surrounded. At least a dozen or so people had formed a circle around them, all brandishing a variety of weapons. Only a few had guns, the others all equipped with knives, crowbars, or even walking canes. They all dressed similarly as well, wearing mostly shades of gray and black, except for a single splash of an annoyingly vibrant yellow. The way they showed this yellow varied from person to person, either in the form of an undershirt, a bandanna tied around their neck, or just a scrap of cloth sticking out of one of their pockets. While they weren't currently rushing to attack, they were clearly prepared to pounce at a moment's notice.

"Make room, everyone. I want a good look at these saps when I'm talkin' to them!" A voice sung out, the circle of men parting slightly to reveal a woman with a wide grin, almost a snarl.

It was clear that this woman was the one who shot the window, the smoking gun still in her hand. She dressed like the others, wearing shades of black. She wore her yellow through simple silk gloves on her hands. She holsters her gun at her hip before stepping into the circle, her vicious grin beaming down at the kids.

"You three are really in the soup now, huh? Do any of you know who I am?" She asked, her eyes darting between them, waiting for an answer.

Axel slept graciously through the gun shot, rolling in his sleep as he continued to snore with his head flaring in a small burst of flames every time he exhaled. It wasn't until he received a hard boot jammed into his rib cage that he reacted, bouncing up to his butt in a flash of flames to see Piper, Simon and himself surrounded by a bunch of people all with a flash of yellow somewhere on their body. It took Axel's mind a moment to register what was going, well actually, Axel's mind never really registered what was going on. The only word that sat in his head as he looked around at all of these armed people was, bad.

Axel studied the woman who emerged through the circle, she too was carrying a boom stick, and by the sounds of her annoying voice she was probably the head of the operation. Axel furrowed his brow and glared at her, this bitch had rudely awoken him from his slumber and she would pay for it. Though Axel was dumb and reckless, he knew trying to wrap his arms around her throat and choking her until she bled out of her eyes was a bit impossible with all surrounding him.

"You three are really in the soup now, huh? Do any of you know who I am?" She spoke as Axel scoffed, looking to the side as Piper moused out her words. Suddenly a ding went off in Axel's head as he glared defiantly at her and said "Is ugly and option?" in response. This corny comeback single-handedly became the highlight of his day as he sat there with an air of victory about him. Though it was short lived as he received a hard kick to his spinal cord, sending his body sprawling forward. Axel whipped his head back viciously ready to tear the head off of whoever had just touched him, though the rest of them staring him down kept him angrily in his seat.

Axel sat there with an angry face and his arms folded, shifting his wild eyes between the bitch in the middle and all her little henchmen, the million ways he wanted to kill them all flitting through his head. Though he could do nothing but sit there and remain silent until she would flap her fat lips again to tell them just who the hell she was.

Simon was jolted awake from the gunshot, only to immediately be greeted by the kick. He rolled over onto his side, holding his chest and groaning. He looked over at the other two, then following their line of sight to the leader, who just grinned widely at it all. Simon moved slightly closer to Piper, his voice low.

"Put your stupid gun down... you don't have enough bullets for all of them, but they have more than enough for us..."

The woman's energetic smile widened even more at Axel's snide remark, a soft chuckle coming as he was kicked forward. She watched the entire scene before her (Axel practically frothing at the mouth, Piper aiming her pathetic gun at them, and Simon writhing in his own pain) with intense interest. Finally, she rested her eyes on Piper, the only one to have actually given a straight answer to her question. She took a small step closer to Piper, squatting a bit to look closer at her, seeming unconcerned that she was also bringing her head directly in front of the barrel of Piper's gun by doing this.

"You all really aren't from around here, huh?" She asked, though she starts talking again before anyone could have time to answer, "Tineburgh is a city ran by gangs, darling. Three gangs in particular call the shots around here, and one of those gangs just so happens to be us, the Theater Wasps."

At the mention of the name "Theater Wasps", all the thugs surrounding them hollered and cheered, obviously proud of who they are. They continued to cheer till the woman raised a single, gloved hand, silencing them.

"I am Valorie Morsus, leader of the Wasps," She smiled, smoothly transitioning her hand from a raised position of dominance into an extended handshake towards Piper, "How about yourself, girl?"

Piper bit back the urge to laugh at their gang name. The Theatre Wasps? That sounded... silly... she felt a bit taken aback, but looked to the other two before replying.

"P... Piper..." She breathed, lowering her gun and setting it on the ground in front of her. I'm going to die, aren't I? This is it. I'm going to be beaten and shot to death. "Er... no title..." she added, trying to hold back the voice crack that threatened her tone as she put out a trembling hand to return the handshake, albeit weakly.

Axel had to dig his fingernails deep into his leg to resist from pouncing on the bitch who got dangerously close to them. The Theatre Wasps they called themselves. Axel felt even angrier at the thought that their name was so well thought out. Theatre wasps, thats why they all have a flash of yellow, just like a wasp. Damn their intelligence. Axel wanted to shout another insult back at them so bad that a low growl emitted from within his throat.

Axel shot a glare to Piper as she spoke her name to the enemy as well as shook hands with her, it caused him to give yet another low growl though he realized the Aerian didn't have much of a choice. Axel then spoke out in hopes it would stop Piper from speaking anymore words to the enemy. "You say there are three gangs that run Tineburgh huh?" He asked pointing to her, that defiant look back on his face "Well there is about to be four." he said firmly lifting his chin up just a bit. He was talking out of his ass, but he wanted to feel just a little bit powerless in front of this woman. "Scratch that.. There's about to be one, and it's us!" He shout standing to his feet with hopes he wouldn't get another boot to the spinal cord. I guess he half expected everyone to take up arms and start cheering like they did at the name Theatre wasps, but instead all he received was some laughs.

Val's eyes widened at Axel's claims of not only forming a gang worthy of becoming one of the Top Dogs, but even overthrowing them. Her hand tightens around Piper's, a clear rage hidden behind her smiling expression. In one swift movement, Val yanks roughly on Piper's arm to pull her up to her feet. Once they got to their feet, Val would spin Piper around and wrap her arm around the girl's neck, putting her into a choke hold as she faces Simon and Axel.

"Now you're all going to listen to me very, very closely, alright?" She shouts out, her wild eyes darting between the two boys, tightening her grip around Piper's throat so that, while she could still breath, it would become difficult, "I want my god damn money, and I want it now. No negotiations."

Simon scrambles to his feet, holding his hands out in a calming manner, like you would to a wild animal. He glances between Axel and Val, unsure where to go from here. He wasn't particularly fond of Piper, but he sure as hell didn't want nightmares about watching the girl be murdered in front of him. Plus, living in this place would really be uncomfortable knowing someone died in here. He instead looks back at Axel, mouthing the words 'What do we do?' to him, hoping that for once the Elemental would have a great plan, because Simon had nothing.

Piper cursed, losing her fearful expression to make way for one of rage. Money?! Goddamnit, the man they'd robbed had a yellow 'kerchief in his back pocket. They'd robbed a member of some big gang and they were the ones who had taken the rest of the money from him.

She began to swear in long strings, struggling against the woman's grasp as she turned her fury onto the two boys. "You fucking idiots!" she spat at them, "I told you not to take all of that money! I told you we shouldn't make enemies too early on! GIVE THEM THE DAMN MONEY!"

She didn't care if she had to go the week stealing stale bread and tin cans of soup, she was not going to die in some warehouse because these two idiots had roughed up a member of some top dog gang.

"Will you listen to me this time and just hand over the money so we don't die?"

Axel felt a wave of victory wash over him as he saw the anger flash in her eyes, and then again it was short lived when she swiped Piper up into a choke hold so fast that Axel didn't even get to blink yet. Axel reached out a hand as if that could stop this from happening, and then once more, he was powerless. Oddly, he wouldn't have given a damn if this woman snapped Pipers neck, though he would never admit it he felt slightly protective over the filthy Aerian.

Axel glanced to Simon with hopes that he had another clever plan, though was disappointed when the boy looked back at him with the same lost face. Axel had to think quick, and that surely wasn't his best skill. Suddenly Axel gripped his head as Piper shouted at the two boys to give the money back. He quickly lashed out at her "IT'S GONE! The money is gone... I didn't want to tell you two yet because us Elementals are not prone to failure." Axel said glancing down, doing his best to put on a show making himself look as ashamed as possible. "When you gave me the money to go buy more bread.. The bastards in red.. They over powered me, there was more of them then I, and they wanted everything." Axel shook his head hoping to all the gods in the sky that one of the gangs that ruled Tineburgh was dressed in red. And that this story was believable enough to get this wasp off. "That's the real reason we only had this one loaf tonight.."

Axel then folded his arms and glared at the wasp that was choking piper, hoping that she would bite on this story and only hoping to add more to it to get her away. "There you have it wasp.. Your money is gone.. And it's not like the wasps are powerful enough to take it back from whoever those red clad men were.. That's why you're here in an abandoned warehouse sticking up a bunch of kids for it." Axel said plopping down to his butt as if in defeat, still silently praying to himself that this lie would work, and that there were men in red, and that they would take him calling them stronger as a means to jump back in to their rivalry with them. "Do what you want with us, while the reds go spend your money." He said with a sigh.

Val's ever-present grin wavered for a moment as Axel told his story, almost shifting to a pure scowl. She quickly catches herself, however, keeping up her appearence. Her eyes blazed with her hidden rage, though, her grip on Piper tightening even more out of anger, now completely closing off her air. She didn't even realize she was doing it, Val lost in her own fury.

"Red... The Hounds..." She mutters with disgust, "This isn't their area... what the hell is Quinn thinking?"

Simon looks back to Axel once more, giving him a look of respect and a small nod. He had to admit, that was a pretty good one. If Axel kept up this kind of thinking, Simon could get used to having him around. Simon's small moment of respect was quickly shattered, however, as Val shouts out to them once again.

"So you lost my money, you think that means you're off the hook?" She asks, releasing Piper and kicking her forward to the other two, her fists then clenching at her sides, "That was debt money. The man you beat up was collecting debts around the city, and now there's one more to collect: Yours. You three are going to make me double... no, TRIPLE what you lost, or I'm coming back and I'll burn you all to the ground."

Piper had choked and gasped for air, clawing at Val's arm as she struggled to breathe. "G-Gah! Ch-Choking!" She struggled out and felt herself becoming more light-headed as the moments went on. Her regular breathing issues didn't account for this, if it went on much longer it could potentially be... very bad.

She gasped for air, only to let it back out in the form of a pained yelp as she was kicked toward the boys again. Struggling to regain her footing, she put her hands up with open palms in a sign of surrender. "R-Right! Right! We'll return the debt!" She spoke with haste, trying to just get the gang of thugs and their numerous heavy weapons out of the warehouse.

Axel folded his arms as she released Piper, he tried his hardest not to look relieved as he folded his arms and looked at the stumbling Piper in front of him. The next words that came out of Val's mouth caused Axel's toes to curl as he dug his fingers into the sides of his arm. What was the point? They had kept the money but now they had to pay triple of what they had gotten in the first place. Axel glanced to Piper and Simon before turning back to Val as he dropped back down to the floor to lay.

He buried his head into the crook of his arm once more as if to seem bored of Val while in the meantime out of their sight he was chomping on his bicep in anger. "You'll get your money.. Now can we sleep?" He shouted out from within his arm.

Val's expression eased as they all seemed to understand and accept what she was demanding, her hands unclenching at her side. She let out a small chuckle, looking back into the crowd of her people. She snapped her fingers once and the crowd parted slightly again, revealing a man with a very bruised and battered face, one eye bruised black and his nose clearly broken. It was the man that they had robbed prior, now walking around, albeit still obviously in pain. He steps forward and towards Val, whispering something in her ear.

"A hundred and fifty marks, eh?" She says, looking to the man as he gives a nod of confirmation. She then turns back to the three kids, her grin smug, "That means you rascals have to round up four hundred and fifty marks. I don't care how you get it, just so long as you get it to me. And soon."

With that, Val brings her fingers to her lips and lets out a shrill whistle, the Wasps surrounding them shuffling towards the exit, a few purposefully bumping into the kids and pushing them around, one even going as far as to step on Axel's hand as he lays on the ground. Val was the last one to leave, looking back at the kids one last time.

"Oh, and if you three are serious about wanting to form a gang here in Tineburgh, you'd better round up some more members," She chuckles, the idea of these three kids forming any sort of gang funny to her, "Come pay a visit to the Gambling District, plenty of people looking to make a name for themselves down there. And while you're at it, check out one of our shows at the Theater, we get great reviews.~"

And finally, Val exits the Warehouse as well, leaving the kids with a broken window, a few light injuries, and a debt of one hundred and fifty marks, no small task.

"Well this sucks," Simon mutters, his happy mood from earlier in the night completely destroyed.
