After hearing Tear speak Joseph got up and looked everyone around him first he looked at Orphan. "Your number wouldn't by chance be 15, would it?" He asked not just Orphan this but those around him not sure who to expect. When everyone looked at their numbers they all said "No" Joseph went to the stage to see if anyone there had his number but he also looked at the bulletin to see what job he and his teammates were going to be doing. As they got on stage they walked passed Sophia smiled at her, "I don't know Wolf, we've been hunting just the two of us since Maddison passed away, I'm not sure what to think about teaming up with anyone else. And there's something vaguely familiar about the mad Hatter device." Wolf just kept on walking at Joseph's side as they approached the bulletin board to check out what their job would be, There was so many people around the board.
All of this had Joseph's mind on his memories with Maddison, the time they spent together was precious and they were madly in love with each other. There would never be another woman for him, not like Maddie. Joseph found himself lost in his thoughts about her. Missing her soft touch, her long Auburn hair and those deep green eyes. She was a smart woman, a lot of his gear was built by her everything from his bow to even his arrows. She even made special cartridges to place in the shaft of the bow that did various things from huge silent explosions, to corrosion of acid and she even created something that the Xennon couldn't perfect. a Cryo explosive. it did the same as the explosive but instead of violent explosions it instantly froze the target and everything in close proximity within 5 feet to freeze solidly, which would take several hours to thaw out.' I don't understand why I would need such violent tools Maddie." "That's because at the moment you don't need them dear Joe, but one day you will find a reason to use them and will be happy that I had not only made them for you but showed you how to." Maddison kissed Joe on the cheek then his lips.... Joseph's thoughts was interrupted by a voice that was speaking to him, When Joseph looked up it was someone holding a card in their hands. "Is your number 15 by chance I have found the other person but can't find the third." Joseph shook the last of the memories from his mind and took a moment to think on the question just asked him. "Ye..yeah, it is. Whats your name?" over the stranger's shoulder she could see that Tears was watching him looking like she needed to speak to him, perhaps about their mission? What ever it was Joseph could see some tears starting to well up in her eyes.

Akanah was not happy with having to work in a group. She had never had to work with a group. She remember times that required she work with IN a froup to reach a contract, but never WITH a group. She looked down and saw that her number was 8 she had told Hunter No to his question and before she could take two steps the tall bearded guy that was sitting next to her spoke up. "My number is 8. I noticed that yours is too? so I guess we'll be working together." Akanah looked at the guy at first with confusion, then with anger. "How did you know my number? where you looking at my card?" Akanah couldn't tell why she was more angry, because he sat next to her and she never even noticed him till he spoke or that he was lurking over her shoulders? Out of anger and disgust she didn't give him time to speak, she had to speak to Tears, but not about the mission or even about the whole team thing. She was about to break the cardinal rule she had about contracts and needed to know if Tears knew anything about the hit placed on Cannon then find out what she could about the guy. She already knew she was going to need materials that she didn't have to make a new blade. it was going to be specially made just for this job.
Akanah made her way towards the stage shortly after and waited while she spoke in hushed tones with the Hunter afterward she went to her. "Tears, I need to speak to you, and its urgent. It has nothing to do with what you have told us but about a contract I just received just days before this meeting. I can promise your not the contract again. I swore to you I would protect you with my life and I will. But it is about..." She was a bit comprehensive about saying who it was. "It's Cannon... I received a letter that was signed ~T asking me to kill him that he was a danger to not only the resistance but to everyone on earth, something about his plans to take over the resistance then to take over Xennon. I was curious as I've never heard that name till today then I realized that the person had to be a member of the resistance, But your the only one I know whose name starts with T and I was wondering if you know anyone who would know him well enough with that letter as their first name. The letter said Cannon has no plans to destroy Xennon or the Parliment. but to rule over it using the resistance as his leverage. I usually have no quips about a contract but this is heavy stuff. If you can tell me anything I'd appreciate it." Akanah could see that Sophia, and Black smith which came up as Akanah was telling Sophia her predicament, was horrified and surprised. All she could do was wait and see what they had to say.
