Opportunity

It's been months since the Dazzlings were defeated by the Rainbooms and their lives have not gone well.
They had to sell some of their clothes and valuables; still, it was not enough.
They looked to their last resort: Get a job. After all, in Cloudsdale, apartments were not cheap.
In that sad apartment, sitting on a small sofa, were Sonata Dusk and Aria Blaze.
Sonata was watching her cartoons, eating her last taco. Aria stood beside her, playing with a pocket knife.

"Ari?" said Sonata.

"What?" Aria said still playing with her knife.

"It's late. I thought Dagi was supposed to be home," Sonata said.

"Yes" said Aria, setting her knife aside to look at the watch on her wrist.

Sonata stared at the small arm of her friend.

"I thought you had asked Dagi to sell it?" asked Sonata.

"Dazzle is no longer anyone to give me orders," Aria said.

"B-but Aria ... we have no money," said Sonata.

"Really?" Aria said sarcastically.

Sonata put on an angry face with bloated and red cheeks when Aria turned to her. It seemed silly, but cute.

"You're the worst!" said Sonata upset.

"You are" said Aria with a bitter humor.

"I do not want to live on the street because of you!" Sonata said.

"Don't you dare blame me! Aria cried with a death glare. "The only culprit here is Adagio. Because of her, we have no powers! "

"If you hate both me and Adagio, why are you still here?" asked a confused Sonata.

That question was a surprise to Aria. But she recovered.

"That's none of your business," Aria said crossing her arms and turning her gaze.

"Tell me!" Sonata said, pulling Aria.

"I don't care," Aria said, pushing Sonata.

At that moment, the door opened, it was none other than Adagio Dazzle, who was returning from work. She saw just as Aria pushed Sonata.

"Ugh! I can not leave them alone without them killing each other," said Adagio, upset.

"She started it!" Aria and Sonata simultaneously said.

"Anyway, if you're done, I have something to say," said Adagio.

"What?" Aria asked.

"We're moving again Dagi?" asked Sonata.

"No ... for now," Adagio said.

"Why now?" Aria said.

"Let's say," Adagio smiled, "I got an opportunity at work," she said. "An idea they liked."

"Really?" Sonata said excitedly.

"I doubt it's better than the last idea you had," Aria said sarcastically recalling past events in the battle of the bands.

Adagio death glared at Aria.

"This plan will be different from that plan," Adagio said.

"In what way," Aria answered.

"This will work," Adagio said.

"But what is your plan?" asked Sonata.

"Well it all started in my office ..."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adagio sat typing on her computer, and when she finished her documents she got up and went to print.
Since the battle of the bands, Adagio had no choice but to take a job as a secretary in a newspaper company. It was not a bad job, but not so good; not enough to support herself and her friends. Worst of all was her boss. He was a fucking pervert, always calling for no good reason.
When she got to the printer, she saw one of her co-workers, a journalist who was leaning next to the coffee machine. When the man realized her presence, he smiled politely.

"Good morning," the man said.

"Umm..." Adagio said reluctantly.

"Problems with the boss?" He asked.

"It would be new?" Adagio said.

"I'm not surprised," he said "Mr. Magnus sucks."

Adagio did not answer, she just wanted to finish her work.

"Indeed," said the young man, "Here's the coffee you came for," leaving the drink.

"Thanks," said Adagio indifferent sipping the coffee.

"It seems the boss is not the only on cranky these days" he said. "Maybe I can help you," he said gently.

"No thanks," Adagio said.

"Oh come on Adagio," said the young man a bit annoyed, "I just want to help."

"I appreciate that you do ... but I'm fine," Adagio said.

"If that say so," said the young man starting to walk out. "It does you good to think so. There is always someone who care about us," and with
that he left the room.

"Pff, bullshit," whisper Adagio

When she finished, she took her coffee and went to her office.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

20 minutes left, her shift was about to end, she only had to deliver some papers to someone before the following morning. But before reaching his office, she saw the man was in a hurry to leave.

"Wait Mil-!"

"Now I can not Adagio! I must go, but I will see you tomorrow! Take care!" he said, out of sight of Adagio.

"Ugh! Men," Adagio tiredly said.

She would not give in so easily, so she just walked into the office and threw it on the desktop.
But having done so, the files slightly moved the computer mouse. The monitor light caught the attention of Adagio, and even more, mail he had received from his companion.

"What is this? Why did Miles receive this?" Adagio wondered, starting to read the message:

"September 17, 2013
From: 10260110756@mutemail.com
To: milesupshur@gmail.com
Subject: TIP / Illegal Activity at Murkoff Psychiatric Systems

You don't know me. Have to make this quick. They might be monitoring.

I did 2 weeks of software consult at MURKOFF Psychiatric Systems' facilities in Mount Massive. All sorts of NDA's I am very much breaking right now but seriously, fuck those guys.

Terrible things happening there. Don't understand it. Don't believe half the things I saw. Doctors talking about dream therapy going too deep, finding something that had been waiting for them in the mountain. People are being hurt and Murkoff is making money.

It needs to be exposed."

"What the hell is Murkoff?" Adagio said.

She left the office and went to hers, willing to investigate.

"Let's see ...." Adagio said. "Here it is: Murkoff Corporation is a company, and current owner of the Psychiatric Hospital of Mount Massive."

Thousands of thoughts went through her head; Murkoff was a very powerful company. Then she had an idea, if she could expose Murkoff first then Miles would reward her greatly, she thought of a life of luxury for her and her friends.

"I can not do this alone. I must tell the girls," thought Adagio.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"And then I left the building" Adagio said finishing her story.

"I still do not understand your plan," Aria answered.

"Isn't it obvious? replied Adagio. "Let's go to the hospital."

"But Dagi... The hospital is not far from the city?" Asked Sonata.

"Hmm," Adagio said. "Prepare your things, we'll go to the psychiatric hospital in Mount Massive," she said smiling.

"Did you forget that the holiday arrives tomorrow?" Aria asked.

"Doesn't matters! We no longer live here, "Adagio said. "Now let's go"

Each prepared her own backpack with the few belongings they had left. All were wearing their old jeans and hooded sweaters.

"Ready?" asked Adagio.

Aria and Sonata nodded.

"Well let's go," said Adagio walking out of the door, followed by her friends.

They left the apartment to take the bus to their destination.

Not knowing what to expect.
