Vincent finally stroke down... A loud noise followed, and the mask crumbled.
"I finally get to see your face!"
The mysterious attacker was indeed a teenager. He was about 15 years old, had short, blonde hair and blue eyes. He was pretty tall and muscular.
Vincent then snapped his fingers to get information about him, but again, nothing came out.
"So it wasn't the mask that was interfering. Well whatever, from now on I shall call you 'A'."
Of course, during this time 'A' was perplexed. Why didn't Vincent kill him? Why was he giving him a name?
"Didn't you know? In a game, the loser has to do what the winner says. I myself only heard about this recently. It would be a waste to kill someone like you, when I can use you..."
"Oh! So you weren't intending to kill him! You scared me for a second!" said Sarah
"But you are useless, so there is no reason to keep you alive." responded Vincent, raising his arm
"What gives you the impression that I will do what you want?" exclaimed 'A'
"I taught you will accept your punishment like a man, but looks like I was mistaken. If you won't listen to me then I will have to force you! You seem to want to protect this woman here, so let's say that if you don't listen to me, I'll kill her!"
The way Vincent was casually talking about killing someone was too casual even for him. Sure, he didn't usually restrain from killing someone, even without good reason, but he wasn't this insensible.
He then grabbed Sarah by her neck and lifted her.
"Leave the innocent people alone! They have nothing to do with us!"
"Unfortunately for you, I don't care if a person is 'innocent or not'. I believe only in fate and luck. She was just unlucky to be here at this moment."
There was nothing that 'A' could do in that situation, but to accept the deal. He would do what Vincent asks, and Vincent will spare Sarah.
"Remember that even if I let her go now and she runs, that doesn't mean I can't kill her anytime."
"I know that much!"
"Hey! I don't like being used as a hostage! Leve me alone! I thought that you were a nice guy, but I was mistaken! You are horrible!"
Vincent lessened his grip and let her down.
After he said that, he took 'A' and disappeared. He was now on a building's rooftop.
"I don't know why you keep protecting that annoying woman but whatever."
"So, what do you want me to do?"
"I will save him! That boy, saved me so many times! Now it's my turn to save him! Also, I don't want to believe that Vincent is bad! And even if he is, I will set him straight!" said Sarah
