So, with the untimely death of Sora Sawada, the Twelveth Boss of the Vongola Famiglia, his daughter is next in line to the throne as it were. Ami Sawada would become the Thirteenth and supposedly lead the family through it's troubles during her reign as the new Boss... But what nobody expected was for a true, 100% legitimate heir to reveal his existence to the criminal underworld some hours after Sora had passed away. Kaoru Sawada, the Diavolo Famiglia's first boss. He wishes to take his place as Vongola Tredecimo as well, it's his true identity and title after all. As you'd expect, this has sparked discontent between most of the mafia out there. Half of the Vongola has joined the legitimate Boss, as tyrannical and evil as his ways are. The other half remain loyal to their young boss, as weak and naive as she may be, she is said to be the true heir - somebody who is pure of heart should be in charge of the Vongola, not a tyrant.
As casually as he took his own father's death, Mr. Sawada hired a company of deadly mercenaries to find and eliminate Ami Sawada, anybody close to her and any potential Guardian figures. And to set Namimori ablaze if that was what it took...
...And that is exactly what it would take if things didn't start looking up. No captured Vongola soldier said anything, no whereabouts, no surrender of information, just the same spit-in-your-face 'kill me!' stance on the invaders to Namimori Town. The Sawada household was empty, Vongola Base also remaining very quiet on the comms net so as to avoid detection by the wrong people.
Where Ami & Ryoji Sawada really were, they were travelling discretely towards one of many secret entrances to the underground base. At school, strangely enough - but the Sawada kids would supposedly need a way out one day. And that day was today! It was a Saturday, so nobody was around. That secret escape route was located in the basement of Nami High. Whether the two made it there or not was another matter entirely, and seeing as they didn't have those chains that covered up their rings' energy signatures, that was highly unlikely...
"We're almost there, Ryoji. It's not much further." Ami stuttered with a worried tone in her voice as the two ran through the school gates and towards the pair of doors. For somebody who had just lost her father about a day ago, she seemed to be taking it pretty well. That, or her fuel for staying alive right now was absolute fear.
Meanwhile, Kiyoshi Nakamura, Ryouko Kirigiri and a baby-sized mafioso made their way from the airport into Namimori in a black SUV. You didn't need to have any supernatural sense or technology to know that something was very wrong in the peaceful little town. They were headed for the town's shrine, where yet another secret entrance was put.
"More than one shady organization have made their move since Sora Sawada passed away only yesterday evening. Some nutjob claiming to be the 'real Thirteenth' in particular wants these two kids taken care of so he can secure himself as the Vongola Family's boss. We'll have to look into it in much more detail when we're free of any disturbances." Reborn chattered along.
Kiyoshi was sat beside Ryouko, staring out the window. He was contemplating just teleporting to the base to save himself this long trip... But, if anything happened to the new boss' Guardian of Cloud, he'd probably have to answer for it. But then... Reborn was here. Nobody could match his skills, right? ...Meh. "Of course." The bored Guardian of Night muttered, sparing a glance in the two's direction. What would be absolutely great right now, would be for nobody to overturn the SUV with hostile intent before they got to Nami Shrine.
