I never knew PSE had a gang. A gang of some insanely good puzzlers. Know what they do? First they catch you and blindfold you. Then they get you locked up with chains on a steel chair and then they ask you to solve some mysterious puzzle's. Oh, do not ask about the consequences of not solving them! For each passing day, they will put a nail in your finger. Argh! Too insane I say. I heard someone saying, they start giving you clues as soon as they tie you up on that crap chair.
I never knew about them until one day, while going on a routine walk, I was caught by such a gang. They took me to some place away from the city. They performed all the rituals as I said like locking me up in the chain on a steel chair. Oh yes, I remember, I was blind folded and hence was only able to listen to their voices. There was only one voice who sounded like the leader and was ordering others.
(Voice One) - Shut up! Everyone! Now, listen to me carefully. Hey you! Yes you. Stop playing with it. Place it down and come here.
(Voice Two) - Yes Sir!
(Voice One) - Also bring down those frozen water cubes. I would like to have a drink.
(Voice Two) - Sure sir.
(Voice One) - Rest other's. You know what needs to be done right?
(Many voices) - Yes Sir!
(Voice One) - If not, just follow the pattern of intersecting straight lines. What you call a zig-zag!
There was a sudden silence and then my blind fold was removed and I could finally see them. Well, they seem like normal people. Nothing sort of kidnappers. But well, they are!
In no time, I was given two of my favorite things. Yes, two Rubik's cubes and a computer.
One of them came to me and whispered in my ears -
First, solve the Rubik and save your fingers. Next, solve the two notes and save yourself. Get us one name you find using all these and you are on your way!
Here's how the cubes looked -
I immediately remembered their conversations and tried to get heads and tails out of it. And it helped me solving the cube. A few placing's on the cube; to be precise, twice on right cube and twice on left cube, and I got something which I thought would help going ahead. But was unsure of what to do with that.
Next, I opened the notes. Each of those had a title. I was confused. Why rubik cube with these notes? What's the matter? I tried keeping the cube on the note, tried to wrap it over the cube and all sorts of trials and errors but nothing helped. And then, I remembered the whispers. And well, I was able to get to the root of it.
I opened note 1 and it looked like this -
Note 1(Get Four Letters)
X-mas is around and so are you.
Arrange using a group of 30 and you will see
Chances are you might get lost but
No we the first of each will be your way.
Note 1 being a little easier, note 2 as expected was a little bit trickier. It consisted of some words and then a note.
Note 2(Get Four Letters)
Free Abduction Saliva Yes
Dead Infra Was Bash
Alfredo Abominated Dad
*Boinota Quermios Tranted Smearo Lefat(Translation of this line - Don't use me everywhere)
It took me some time. Phew.. I was somehow able to crack it up. Having solved both cubes and notes, I didn't knew what to do next until I saw the laptop they gave me.
With a blink of an eye, I opened it. Used what I found with the cubes with what I found on the notes. And within minutes I was out. Within an hour, I was resting on my couch having a nice cup of coffee.
Well well, that was the story. Can you give me the name? Can you save yourself? Go ahead. Do it. It's fun!!
1. Only the visible letters on the cube matter
2. Not all the visible letters on the cube matter
3. The content as it is will help solve the puzzle
4. The quoted stuff and visuals are enough to find the solution.
5. While the quoted stuff will help solving it, story part serves as an information on how to solve it.
6. Solving this should be a warm up exercise :) Enjoy.

Though I have already covered it up in the puzzle but just for hinting, Rubik Cube(which is already solved) and the two notes have their own independent solutions. Hence, $Step1(Rubik Cubes)+(Step2(Note1)+Step3(Note2))=Final Answer$.
