Chapter One



They knew I was right, so why did they ignore me?

‘Aries, the best way in is through the back entrance,’ I said again.

He scowled in my direction but didn’t make eye contact. The wind howled around us. The trees bowed down to it. If he wasn’t going to listen, I wasn’t going to mess about.

‘Fine, you stay here, then.’

The crack of thunder was the perfect cover as I shot out from between the trees and made a run for the back door. The grass was springy under my feet. My cap was pulled by the storm, but it stayed firmly on my head. The rain was coming. The air was moist.

Aries would be swearing behind me, but I didn’t care. The darkness enveloped me as I reached the backdoor. The house looked empty but Mother had promised that Nick was keeping Father there.

When our father had been kidnapped seven months ago, we thought we would find him straight away. I wasn’t bothered about him to be honest. He had left us years ago. Why should I worry about him now?

‘Will you wait?’

The hiss came from behind me. It was time for me to ignore my brothers. Aries and Gemini had been waiting in the shadows for the perfect opportunity. There was no such thing.

‘Taurus, stop being so bull-headed,’ Gemini said.

What did they expect from me? I wasn’t going to sit around and wait for someone else to get on with it. We stood in the garden of a house in the south of England in the middle of a thunderstorm. It was a very expensive house on the harbour front. A few trees lined the garden. We had jumped over a wall to gain access and then hidden in the shadows.

‘He’s in the back bedroom.’

I tried the handle of the back door to see if it was open. It didn’t move.

A whirring sound from the front of the house made us pause. The front gate was opening.

‘Go check,’ Aries ordered Gemini.

The tall, lean shadow of Gemini left us. I took out a hair pin from my pocket and bent down to the lock in the door. Why had Aries expected it to be easy to gain access? He hadn’t even thought about how we would get in.

‘It’s Nick,’ Gemini announced as his shadow moved back to us.

Aries grabbed my arm to still my efforts when a light came on behind the back door. The pin was stuck in the lock. It didn’t budge. Maybe Nick had learnt his lesson from the last house we had broken into.

‘What do you mean you don’t know where they are?’ Nick’s voice reached us from inside. The sound of his footsteps accompanied his words.

I crouched in my spot, trying to stay completely still. My legs weren’t as strong as they had been before I dropped out of my fitness training course. Aries and Gemini were pressed against the wall. It was almost midnight. What was Nick doing out so late?

‘Stop sitting on your arse and find them! You know the deal, always keep tabs on the boys, they’re the threat!’

I glanced at my brothers. I couldn’t see their faces enough to know what they were thinking.

We had tracked Nick to the house. When he’d sped off earlier, he had been on the phone, arranging a meeting in London. We had no clue that he would come back to the house.

‘Yes, I know it’s too late to stop Aries from uniting, but he’s still dangerous,’ Nick said.

Aries’ chest would be puffing up like a bird trying to attract its mate. He had a big ego. It didn’t need any more stroking.

‘I’m going to bed. Just get on with your job. Oh, and one more thing. Get some food when you come in tomorrow. Trevor is getting hungry.’

My ears pricked up. I hadn’t heard my father’s name for a very long time. We just called him Father. No one else knew him, so there was never any need to introduce him as Trevor. It was such a dull name.

The light clicked off, followed by the sound of retreating footsteps. This was our best chance. Nick was alone and Father was only a few feet away. I was going in.

‘We need to—’

Aries cut off as I sprung up and looked back towards the trees. Nick didn’t play nice, so why should we? A light came on in the window above. I calculated the height of the nearest tree.

‘Taurus, what’s got into you?’ Aries hissed.

The wind whirled around us, almost carrying his words away. I glanced at him but didn’t reply. They thought I was worthless. My brothers and sisters were all so perfect, with their perfect jobs and the mission of a lifetime.

I was a stonehead. A man that had shown promise but had fallen into drugs. Why did they think drugs were so bad?

‘We can’t get in quietly, so let’s cause a disturbance,’ I whispered.

Aries stepped forward at the same time as Gemini. Were they going to restrain me? I would break free of them, but it would be easier if we were on the same team.
