Bruno stood before us wearing a cheap violet and green suit and tie. He had cuts on his cheeks, and a huge bruise on the side f his forehead. Dino had done a good job. He had his hands in his pockets and was laughing with his head thrown back. Four huge men in black suits stood behind him with their hands folded and their expressions were blank. Bruno and his men seemed to be the only people in the diner.
"You two, are just adorable."
I shoved Reese behind me and stood in front of him.
"How do you keep finding us?" I asked
"Well, that's easy. There was a bullet that missed you completely while my men were shooting at you, correct?"
I raised my head, but didn't confirm. Bruno sighed and continued. "Well that bullet actually contained a tracking device. It hit the top of your little squad car and we tracked you down to your little motel. After that we just followed you. It's so simple but yet so genius. You see Amelia," Bruno began to raise his voice. "it's the little things in life that make you successful in everything you do. You of all people should know that. It's the little things like keeping deals with people that keep you alive. Have you ever wondered what happened to your parents?"
How dare he mention my parents. I took a step forward, preparing to punish him for what he had said. But Reese grabbed my elbow and whispered in my ear, "He's encouraging you. He wants you to fight. Don't give him what he wants." I relaxed and took a step back towards Reese and he let go of my elbow. Bruno continued to run his mouth.
"They made a deal with my father. He knew that your mom, ugh. What was the whores name?"
"Don't talk about her like that." I growled through gritted teeth.
"Ah yes. Marie was her name." He emphasized her name, " Well he knew that Marie had dumped off her baby at the orphanage. And did you know, that both of your parents, did the same thing you did? They were almost better than you were. It runs in your family. Did you really think that you were a natural? You got it from your parents. And he made a deal with them, that if they killed the chief of police, also known as, loverboy's father, he would let you live. Your parents must have loved you a whole lot because they stole themselves a nice little car and followed the chiefs car. To kill him, they swerved like drunk drivers and hit him right on the side of his car, flipping not only the chief but their own car right off the bridge. Little did they know, that the chief of police wasn't the only person in the car. He was going out to dinner with his cute little wife and they were on their way home to see their lovely little son. Not only did they kill the chief of police and his wife, but they killed themselves. They sacrificed themselves, to save you. Your parents saved YOUR life while they ruined another." Bruno motioned towards Reese. I couldn't see much, just the outline of Bruno and his huge body gaurds since my eyes were filled tears. I stepped forward. Reese didn't try to hold me back this time.
"I may have tried to kill you a few times Amelia, but I haven't lied to you."
"I am going to fucking kill you. And your little body guards you fucking coward."
With that Bruno smiled a wicked smile and one of his men came running at me. I shoved Reese back and crouched on the ground. I stuck out one of my legs and the man fell to the ground with a thud. I slipped the gun out of his belt and shot him in the knee. Then two of them came at me. As the first ran past me I hit him in the head with the butt of the gun, knocking him unconscious. The next one came charging at me at full speed and I hit him in the gut as hard as I could. He laughed at my effort heartily. He grabbed my wrists in one hand and used his other arm to turn me around and press me to his body, so I couldn't fight my way out. I frantically searched for Reese but he was nowhere to be seen. Bruno was walking towards me slowly, he was looking directly into my eyes and smiling at me.
"You know Amelia, this would all be over if you just worked for me. I swear to you, that if you come to work for me, Reese will be safe. I won't touch him, and neither will any of my men." I was struggling to fight my way out of the mans clutches, but I was unsuccessful. I started screaming for Reese.
"REESE! REEEEESE! REESE HELP!!"
"He isn't coming! As soon as Luko charged at you he made a break for it. Looks like your on your own princess." Bruno was grinning now. Just then, I heard someone run through the door.
"ANGREIFEN!!" I heard Reese yell.
Then I heard Dino come charging through the door snarling and barking. He must have jumped onto the man holding me, because he fell to the ground. Before he hit the ground I ran out from under him and grabbed he gun that he had yanked out of my hands when he grabbed me. I shot the other body guard in the shoulder, which caused him to fall to the ground. I looked around for Bruno, and didn't see him anywhere. I turned around behind me, to see Reese walking towards me. He took me in his arms and we kissed. We kissed even longer than we had that night in the police station. There was more passion in this kiss than any kiss we had ever shared. I wrapped my arms around Reese's neck and he pulled away and muttered "Ferse". Just as he said this, Dino pulled away from the man. He then resumed to kissing me. He picked me up and swung me around. He pulled away again and said,
"I don't care what you're parents have done. We can't change the past. What happened happened. You had absolutely nothing to do with it. I don't blame you. I don't care. I still love you."
"I love you too Reese."
As I leaned in to kiss him again, my eyes wondered to a shaped rising above the counter. It was Bruno. He aimed the gun right at Reese. Without thinking, I shoved Reese out of the way and jumped in front of him. Bruno fired the gun...
