Henley was walking out into the street, with a Starbucks coffee cup in her hand. Gliding across the street, her fire red hair blowing in the wind. As she was walking toward her destination, the apartment, a hand with a white biker glove grabbed her arm, startling her. She seemed like a fan, because she had a bright smile and an ecstatic sparkle in her eye, but Henley could never be too sure when it came to crazy stalkers.

"Are you by any chance, Henley Reeves?" Henley nodded, not sure what to think. The fan then gasped, putting her hands to her face. "Oh my God. Lexy Stone, I'm a huge fan." Henley then smiled, and shook Lexy's hand. Hey, she was a fan, was she supposed to turn her down? "Well, it's nice to meet you. Now, I have to get somewhere." Henley started to walk away, but was stopped again, but for a different reason.

"Hey, did you get a card with an address on it? 45 East Even Street, Room 6A, and 4:44 PM?" Lexy asked the escape artist. Henley froze, in absolute shock. "How did you...just, how?" Lexy just smiled, and showed a card just like Henley's, except a different design. "You got one too?" Henley asked. Lexy looked so young to her! How did she get a card like that?

"Yep! And since you got one as well, that must mean I'm as good as you. That is the biggest shock and greatest surprise I've ever gotten." Henley just smiled, this girl was starting to grow on her. "You wanna walk up together?" If possible, Lexy's smile got even bigger than before. "Do I ever!"

The two magicians then started wallking towards the apartment, but was stopped by ANOTHER hand, once again grabbing Henley's arm. She then turned around the see one of the last people she EVER wanted to see.

"Daniel Atlas." Henley stated, annoyance and surprise tinted in her voice. "Henley Reeves." Daniel also stated, a bit of surprise in his voice. Lexy just watched, wishing she had some popcorn to go with this unhappy reunion. "What are you doing here, Danny?" Daniel softly smiled, she was the only one that called him that, even if she hated him. "Why, I'm here on business." Henley just smiled. "What kind of business? Of picking up sluts off the street?" Lexy snickered, causing Daniel to glare at her. Lexy then looked down, a slight blush colored her cheeks.

"No, magic business, if you may. Now, if you excuse me." He tried to push around Henley, but she just moved in front of him again, annoying him. Henley just smirked, and Lexy snickered again, but it wen unnoticed this time. "Let me guess. 45 East Evan Street, room 6A, and 4:44 PM?" Henley asked her former boss. Once she said that, Daniel had a look of absolute shock on his face.

"What?" Lexy and Henley then showed their cards to the very famous street magician. Daniel then sighed, knowing he was never gonna shake them. "Fine. I'll scpoe out the place upstairs, and you guys wait here for my signal." He tried to get around the girls again, but this time was stopped by Lexy.

"Oh no you're not. We're going up there. Whether you like it or not, because you're not my boss, or her boss." Henley let out a laugh, then looked away from Daniel's hard stare. She was really starting to like Lexy. Daniel then groaned, knowing he lost. "Fine, come on up." Lexy squealed and ran up the stairs, and Henley shook her head, chuckling, with Daniel coming up behind Henley.

"So Henley, how have you been doing?" Henley just laughed. "I think you know exactly how I've been doing Danny. I saw your posts on my website." Daniel was about to make a witty remark, but Lexy spoke up before he could. "He posted messages on your site? Stalker!" She sing-songed the last word, causing Henley to giggle, and Daniel to roll his eyes at the young woman.

Henley and Daniel argued the rest of the way up the stairs, with Lexy listening the whole time, until they reached the room, seeing a middle-aged man standing in front of the door. "Oh." Henley, Daniel, and the man said at the same time. Lexy just stared.

"Merrit Mkinney. Famous hypnotist. I saw most of your specials, you are awesome." Lexy gawked, with Merrit smiling, and Daniel glowered. "Wait, why aren't we going in?" Lexy asked. Merrit then stepped away from the door. "Locked." Everyone then groaned, Daniel still glowering at Merrit

"Great. You got a card?" Merrit then showed his magic card, and Daniel groaned. "Ok," Merrit started to say, moving in front of Henley, "Let me guess, Helen? No, Henley." She then nodded, but Daniel spoiled Merrit's fun.

"It's on her coffee cup. Not magic." Daniel stated. Merrit then shrugged. "It was an observation. And let me say Henley, you are beautiful." Henley blushed at the comment, leaving Lexy to fake gasp.

"And I'm average? The nerve!" Lexy then huffed, with everyone chuckling at her theatrics. Merrit then turned to Daniel, making Daniel shake his head. "Oh no. You're not...reading me." But Merrit already started. "Too late! You were, wait, ARE uptight, a control freak."

Daniel rolled his eyes, with Henley nodding in approval. "That is spot on. Danny, you are a control freak." Merrit then decided to get smart. "Is that why you two aren't a couple anymore?"

That comment made both their heads snap towards the hypnotist. "No, no," Daniel started. "We were NEVER going out." Henley finished. Lexy then laughed, making every head snap towards her. "Sorry. It's just...anyone can see the romantic tension between you two!" She then motioned between Daniel and Henley. Henley scoffed, and Daniel gave Lexy the middle finger, but Lexy only shrugged.

Just then, more footsteps were heard coming up the stairs. Once the younger man got up the stairs, he just stopped and stared at Daniel. "Daniel Atlas? Dude, I've seen all your work, your like...I...I idolize you." Daniel just smiled, while Henley rolled her eyes. She could see his ego inflating by the second. Lexy looked up at the sign of the new magician, and her eyes nearly bugged out of her head. Everyone noticed, kinda creeping the con-artist out.

"Do I know you? You look kinda familiar." He asked, looking at Lexy. She then shook her head rapidly, as if waking up from a trance. "Your name..." Lexy pointed at the con-artist, "Is Jack Wilder. You lived in Houston, never really knowing your mom, and you had a strained relationship with your dad. You finally ran away to New York when you were 14, and was never heard from again." Everyone was shocked, and Jack was OFFICIALLY creeped out.

"How...how do you know my life story?!" Jack practically shouted at Lexy, and she just smiled. "Oh, Jackie, you never could keep your temper in check." She then cocked her head to the side, and smirked. Jack just stood there for a few minutes, dumbfounded, then a look of realization lit up his face.

"Wait a minute. Only one person EVER called me Jackie...no way, is that you Lexy?!" Lexy just smiled, and Jack ran up to give her a HUGE hug, which she returned. After about 10 seconds, he released her from the death grip, because she started making choking sounds and pounding his back with her fist.

Once Lexy could breath again, Henley looked at Lexy. "Childhood friend." Everyone then 'Ooohhhed' in understanding. "So wait. Why aren't we going in?" Jack asked. Everyone looked towards the door and Daniel said, "Locked." Jack just shook his head smiling. "Oh no, nothing's ever locked." Jack then went up to the door with a lock-picking key, and unlocked the door in as little as 2 seconds. Once the door was open, the group of magicians slowly walked inside.

"What is this?" Jack asked as they walked into the apartment. They see a white rose on the ground, a vase full of water, and an unusual design etched into the floor. Henley then walked up to the rose, and placed it in the vase, stating, "A rose by any other name." When she placed the rose in the vase, the water drained out of the vase and started running towards the design on the floor.

The water slowly filled up the design, and when it was full, it sank into the ground, smoke coming out of the new opening. "Woah, smoke!" Jack exclaimed, but Merrit shook his head. "It's dry ice, genius." Lexy giggled, and quickly looked away from Jack's face.

"Did you come up with this?" Daniel asked Henley. She shook her head. Daniel the pointed at Jack, and he shook his head, also saying something. "I didn't do this, but I wish I did." Daniel then pointed at Lexy, and she shook her head vigorously. Merrit then looked at Daniel. "Aren't you gonna ask me?" He asked, and Daniel rolled his eyes.

"Electricity's out." Jack exclaimed, as Daniel started to walk towards a camera in the wall. "Well, let's find out." Merrit exclaimed, twisting a light bulb. Just as Merrit was done twisting, 3 projectors in the walls showed an image. "It looks like blueprints!" Henley exclaimed. Lexy then rolled her eyes. "No, I think it looks like a unicorn!" Jack just chuckles at his friend's comment.

"Who do you think did all this?" Lexy asked. Henley then shook her head. "I have no idea, but I wanna meet him!" Daniel then pushed a symbol in the hologram, and started their adventure.
