He could hear the train coming, the sound becoming clearer and louder with each passing moment. Any second now it would come, drowning the gunshot... If Sai'Len could make it despite the crows that were enjoying messing with his still form...
The bounty hunter started counting down in his head. Ten, nine, eight... He started to squeeze on the trigger, spooling it. Seven, six, five... The train moved under him, rattling loudly. Four, three, two...
And that was when his phone vibrated in his pocket. The unexpected occurence threw off his aim just as he pulled the trigger. The shot went wide, missing its intended target and hitting the club's bartender. Glass, drinks and blood flew in the room, the screams probably loud enough to be heard even at his position if they weren't drowned by the train.
With a loud curse in Chinese Sai'Len scrambled on his feet, his hand patting at his pocket before he found the phone and answered it. "What?!" He shouted in the receiver, trying to be heard over the passing train even as he ran across the overpass' rooftop.
Lost Angel stood on the roof of a building, looking over the city in attempts to find something. She knew it would be impossible, but it was worth a shot. The building held apartments, one of them belonging to Hoshiko and her roommate. Lost had been staying there whenever she was called back into the city for a job or such. She had to admit, Hoshiko's roommate was very cool with all the Projects and such that came through. Then again, she had stated she and Hoshiko had been roommates for a while.
She had returned to the apartments shortly after the strange call with Hoshiko. Walking in, she found that Hoshiko hadn't been home since the night before. Lost had seen her walk out to go do a job, and then she got a text asking for help on another one.

Pulling out her phone again, she went through her contacts. She made sure her siblings numbers weren't under their actual names. Sure she made sure her phone was on her at all times, but she always had to think ahead. Finding the nickname she gave Sai, she quickly selected it to call.
[b [#104BC2 "You better pick up this time..."]]
Finding a single man in a city with population over a million wasn't easy. It took a lot of skill for that to be pulled off. Knowing the target's habits, stakeouts, research, utilizing contacts... All that and more was needed to find someone who wanted to hide.
Sai'Len had everything needed in spades, and then some. You didn't operate as a bounty hunter in a city like this without making a few friends... And a lot of enemies.
Right now he was observing his next target. The man, dressed in a pristine white suit as he lounged in a club at the top floor of one of the higher buildings in the area, had his head wanted by some company that dealt with biological weapons. Apparently he was a major competitor in that area, and Sai'Len's current employers wanted him taken alive so that they could "persuade" the man to work for them.
Too bad for them that it wasn't going to happen... But Sai'Len would send them a copy of the man's research, while forwarding it to every other competitor he could find. As for the man himself...
Sai'Len shooed the crow that had dared to land on his sniper rifle. The train would pass through the raised overpass under him any moment now, and he needed to time the shot perfectly in order to mask the sound...

Lost Angel had been tracking this guy for a while now. Helping her twin out, yet she was no where to be seen. Just great. Finding out she had family wasn't all it was cracked up to be it seemed. Her sister was a stubborn one, and that was putting it lightly. While she could work with people, it was obvious why her boss had her work alone most of the time.
[b [#104BC2 "If she doesn't show up soon I'll just take care of it and collect the money for myself."]] She muttered, pulling her hood over her head and walking out of the alleyway.
She stayed a good distance behind the man, who didn't look out of the ordinary at all. But she knew that wasn't true. It was always the ones that looked too ordinary. This guy wasn't on the good side of Hoshiko's boss, and he wanted him brought alive. Lost had no idea why Hoshiko wanted her help, but it seemed it would be because she was too lazy to do the job herself. Didn't matter to her though, more money in the end.
Tacking him took no time, and with no help. Now it was just a waiting game to get him either alone or with little witnesses that they wouldn't bother to report it. Didn't take long, the idiot walking into a part of town that people only went to if they really needed to. Smiling, she rushed a bit past him and turned around.
[b [#104BC2 "Yo! Your boss is angry with you."]] Lost then punched him in the face, knocking him out instantly. An easy job it seemed.
After turning him over to the boss, she had some more money. A job well done she figured. Her phone rang then, looking at it, she sighed and answered.
[b [#104BC2 "You're not getting the money. I got it myself."]]
[b "Lost, find Sai."]
[b [#104BC2 "You know he only shows himself when he wants to be found."]] Lost Angel replied, leaning against the wall of the building, spotting a cute guy in the distance.
[b "Find him Lost, I mean it. I saw the woman again, I know I did."]
Now Hoshiko had her attention. [b [#104BC2 "Wait, the one that you said was chasing you and kicked your ass?"]]
[b "Yes...just find Sai and let him know."]
[b [#104BC2 "Why can't you?"]]
The phone cut off then. Lost looked at it, a bit confused. Lost hadn't seen the woman before, but Hoshiko had told her about it. But why now all of the sudden? And why had the phone cut off?
[b [#104BC2 "This better not be a joke..."]]
