Who are you to

kill people like that?

Besides, who were those men?

And why did they carry guns?

Do you understand?

- No, but it doesn't matter. Calm down.

I'll explain everything.

Dry your tears.

Now she reminds me of someone.

Go look for Miko's file...

and call the lab for the dirt

under her nails.

In an hour at the Hotel.

- Come on I spend my life in the car.

Your mother asked for me.

She didn't trust anyone else.

Even after all these years,

I think she trusted me.

She let me come here to tell me

something. A secret.

But someone killed her before

she could tell me.

Now the guys in the black suits

are after you.

I didn't do anything.

Why do they want me?

That's what I've been wondering.

You told me she lived in

town during the week?

Two years ago

she took me there.

She forgot something important.

We went there,

but I stayed outside.

She wouldn't let me inside.

And when I said I wanted to

see where she lived...

she hit me in my face.

That's the only time she ever hit me.

Do you remember the address?

Has she always been like this?

She was pretty organized, but not like this.

- Then someone has been here already.

Why is all the furniture gone?

- They were looking for something...

but they don't know your mother.

'Never place an object in another

object you can move.'

What are you talking about.

- You will see.

I still don't get it.

How did you know it was there?

We had the same education.

Tell me, what is this?

Numbers and names.

- Now it's starting to become clear.

And less clear for me.

My mother sent some

guy to look over me...

that kills everyone

and makes holes in the wall.

Yumi, look. Trust me.

The nightmare is almost over.

Alright, let's go home.

This time they left the furniture behind.
