Wolf pushed him down on to the chair harshly, grip tight on his shoulders. "Talk."
Alex sighed and shot him a look over his shoulder, ignoring the other men who sat on the couch opposite him. Eagle held an ice pack to his eyebrow gingerly, glaring at Snake at the same time as watching him.
"What do you want me to say?"
Wolf growled, crossing his arms and leaning back on the wall behind him. "Everything. I want you to tell me why the hell you were sniped, who did it, and where i can find the son-of-a-"
"Wolf." Snake cut off, seeing their unit leader growing in anger.
Eagle moved the ice pack off his eye to look properly at Alex. "Why don't you tell us it all from the beginning."
Alex rolled his shoulders and shook his head. "It doesn't work like that. It's my life, i don't have to tell you anything. It's classified anyway."
"Actually..." Snake turned to glance at Fox. "It's not. We got clearance from Mrs Jones when Fox joined us. Still have to sign the OSA like but."
Fox shrugged as Alex sighed. "You got cleared for Fox. But not for me."
Wolf growled quietly behind him. "You're a child, Fox's have to be worse than yours. You wouldn't have done anything that dangerous."
"Point Blanc Wolf. You think that wasn't dangerous?"
"That was a one time thing, wasn't it?"
"What make's you think that?"
"No government would use a child and constantly put him in danger. They're not monsters."
Alex turned to him disbelievingly. "What government, Wolf, would use a child in the first place?"
Snake shook his head. "What the hell have you gotten yourself into Cub?"
He snorted and turned back round. "What part of this make's you think that i got involved of my own free will? I certainly wasn't when i was being shot at the first time, and it hasn't grown on me since."
Wolf narrowed his eyes. "What do you mean?"
Alex sighed and shook his head. "Nothing. It doesn't matter."
"What about the others then?" Snake muttered. "The other scars."
"Depends." He replied. "They're from all sorts."
"It sounds like you've seen more action than we have." Eagle joked, ignorant of the slight shudder that passed through the boy.
"Why don't you tell us a little bit." Fox spoke up. "Tell us about Point Blanc for those of us who weren't there."
Nodding reverantly, Eagle looked over at Wolf. "Even you don't know that much- just kids had been held hostage in a school."
Alex sighed and rubbed his forehead, fingers lingering in his hair. "There was nothing really. MI6 had two deaths of important men who's children had attended Point Blanc school in the French Alpes. I was sent in as Sir DAvid Friend's son, to find out what was going on. Got caught, escaped, and then met Wolf."
Said man raised an eyebrow. "You forgot the part where you snowboarded down a mountain on an ironing board, whilst being shot at by men on snow-mobiles."
"Yeah..." He shrugged. "Not that important."
Eagle stuttered incoherently as Snake shook his head. Alex carried on before they could speak
"Any way. Met up with Wolf, took them back to the school, rescued the kids, got knocked out."
"You forgot the part where i got shot saving your butt."
He shrugged. "There was that as well."
"And were you shot down the helicopter with a snow mobile."
"You saw that?"
Eagle's jaw dropped. "Please tell me you made a joke with that." He pleaded, eyes wide.
Snake cuffed him. "That's not what you should be asking about." Fox sighed, shaking his head.
Wolf placed his hands on the back of the couch, leaning over and taking in the way Alex cringed beneath him. "So what else have you done then?"
Alex stood up abruptly, moving out of the chair. "I don't remember saying I'd tell you. You know more than most now."
"But Cub!" Eagle whined. "Tell us about your other adventures!"
He shook his head and moved into the doorway, looking back over his shoulder. "The less you know, the better."
"Where are you going?" Snake called out, after him.
"Bed. It's twenty past one."
The four men looked at the clock on the wall, eye's raising in suprise. Snake turned to them, thoughts ticking.
"He hid from us for six hours?"
Fox laughed. "And you only caught him because he needed to take a leak." He chuckled quietly, rising from his own chair and following Alex.
The others mirrored his actions, heading up the stairs as one. Eagle pouted as they reached the landing. "Why did i get the pink room?"
Wolf ignored him and walked past, closing his bedroom door behind him. Snake snorted. "Because it was your idea to give Wolf that room."
"And tell him!" Fox called out as he reached his rooms, grinning at him. "You just couldn't help it."
Eagle pouted as the others closed their own rooms, leaving him in the hallway.
"Anybody want to swap?"
There was a creak of an old floorboard, startling Fox into wakefulness, unsure of what had frightned him. He blinked, slowly, trying to figure where the noise was coming from. In the room beside him, a heavy, raccous snoring sounded, filling him with relief. It was just Eagle.
With a sigh, he rolled over, facing the wall, unaware of the prescense until it was right beside him, startling him. He sat up sharply, flinging his elbow out, meeting nothing but air. Two hands grabbed at him, as another set smothered him, covering his face with a sweetly smelling cloth.
Fox was aware of his limbs growing heavier, despite his attempts not to breath what had to be chloroform in. With a last fading thought, he fell into darkness, and into the arms of his captors, unaware just what this meant.
Alex stumbled into the kitchen carefully, rubbing sleep from his eyes. Yawning, he switched on the kettle, looking for the coffee in the cupboards. Dimly, he was aware of his habit which confused people; the british were supposed to drink tea first thing. He snorted quietly. Jack had rubbed off on him more than he'd originally thought.
Upstairs, there was a loud thud and a curse as Wolf fell out of bed. After a few minutes, two sets of doors opened, and footsteps headed down the stairs. Alex sighed to himself- so much for avoiding them for a while.
Wolf grunted to him as he slid into the kitchen, settling himself at the table after taking out his own mug to fill. Snake smiled to him.
Alex hummed into his drink, passing the coffee mix to Snake. "You never said Eagle snored." He muttered, drinking slowly.
Snake shrugged. "You get used to it after a while."
Alex didn't reply. Wolf finished the cup before pouring himself another cup. Snake sighed. "You drink to much of that stuff."
Wolf, now more awake, shrugged. "Like to have a healthy dose whilst i have the chance."
"You drink it back at camp as well." Snake stated, unimpressed.
Alex raised an eyevorw, which Snake caught. "He gets up earlier to go to the kitchens, before coming back to wake us up"
There was a crash above them, and Snake sighed. "Never one to fell left out." Bounding down the stairs, Eagle flew into the kitchen, hopping up onto the table. "Cub! You are making breakfast, aren't you?"
Snake snorted. "Is that the only reason you got up?" Eagle shrugged, waving his hand dismissively.
Alex sighed. "Fine. There's bacon and sausage i can do- the toaster's in the counter. Make your own."
Eagle wooped with joy, pulling out bread and sitting in front of the toaster, as he slid two peices in. Snake sighed as Eagle began to watch the toast, head over the gap.
"You're going to get hurt, doing that."
"Will- Ow!" He shreiked as the toast hit him in the face. Snake snorted.
"Hate to say i told you so."
Wolf grunted into his mug, watching as Eagle preceded to sit down and start eating. The sound of frying in an open pan, as well as munching, was all that could be heard. By the time the bacon was ready, the two other men had a helping of toast in front of them. Alex raised an eyebrow.
"Shouldn't Ben be up by now?"
"Fox?" Wolf looked at Snake. "He's normally first one up."
"If he doesn't hurry, Eagle's going to have eaten all the food."
Wolf grinned slyly, and turned to Eagle. He looked up, eye's wide.
Wolf pulled the plate off him, moving out of the way as he dived for it. "Go wake Fox up."
"Because i have your plate."
Eagle growled, before stalking up the stairs unhappily. Snake shook his head, watching as Alex piled a plate with the food and setting it on the table. "Childish."
"You're no better." Wolf pointed out, waving his fork. There was a shout from upstairs, sending Wolf to his feet at the suprise and anguish. The group exchanged looks, hearing Eagle shouting incoherently, crashing down the stairs.
He raced into the kitchen, sliding across the tiles and into the cabinets with a bang. He was panting, eyes searching each of them.
(A/N) Suspense! Ha ha! Well then, looks like things are going to get stressful! R&R!
