- Dean's POV -
After I cried all over Autumn I felt very unmanly. Men don't cry. Crying is a weakness. I had gone to my office to think about all of the things. All of my feelings for Leila came rushing back when I saw her head. How could this have happened to her? She was a sweetheart. She was perfect. We broke off our relationship because her father didn't approve of me. He thought I wasn't rich enough, smart enough, and perfect enough. I didn't have good manners. Everything wasn't good about me. The only thing he liked about me was that I'm an agent, which should have meant I would have been able to protect his little princess. As I reflected on all of my feelings my phone rang.
"Hello, is this Dean Rosing?"
"Okay good, this is Mr. President's office; he would like a word with you."
"When? How?" I asked.
"Today at three in his office."
"I'll be there." I said as I hang up the phone. I was done with everything for now. I propped my feet up on the desk and closed my eyes.
Way too soon after I closed my alarm went off. I had to go to the President's office. I got to my car and raced to his office. Walking in I gave my name and got pointed to the waiting area. You would think he would make time for me immediately, because he wanted to speak to me.
I sat down and grabbed a magazine. Not really noticing what I was reading.
"Dean Rosing." I got up and walked to the person.
"You can go through now." I walked through the hallway and entered the room.
"Ah Dean. Can you tell me how it is my little girl's head is in your morgue?"
"We are investigating the head killer. He has returned. He apparently got a hold of your little girl and murdered her."
"Well how far is the investigation? Did you find him already? He has to pay for decapitating my daughter, my little princess. Do your job already!"
"I can't tell you anything about our investigation; we can't risk you knowing anything to jeopardize our catching of this guy."
"Well grab him as soon as possible. He has to pay for what he has done!"
"We will do our best. We even have the one that got away from him in our custody, so she is helping us find him."
"You mean your new girlfriend. You got over my little girl pretty damn fast. You didn't protect her like you said you would."
"Well you made us break up so technically it wasn't even my job to protect only her. I have been working hard in hopes of catching this bastard and she isn't my new girlfriend. I don't love her. I loved your little girl but I guess that is over now."
"Just go and grab him off the streets! I am fucking done with this shit. I want my little girl back!"
"She can't come back. She's dead. She has no limbs, no head and no body." I yelled at him. He was such a stuck up bastard. He fell into a crying mode when I yelled that at him. I felt sorry. He just lost his princess in the cruelest way. It wasn't her time.
I walked out of his office and to my car. I rode back to the office and looked at the board. Where would that killer hide? Why would he stay in this city, with the entire FBI-force after him? Everyone wanted to catch him, to get him off the streets.
I needed to avenge Leila's death. I needed to catch him for Autumn, so she would be happy. So she could live in peace again. So we could maybe have a future together. What?! No I am not thinking about a future with her. She isn't the one for me. I just have to forget about her. I called Lacey to see if she could go by Autumn in her room. She would call me back in 5 minutes to tell me what was going on over there.
"Dean." I said as I answered the phone.
"Dean, we have a problem!" I heard Lacey say.
"It seems as if Autumn has disappeared, she apparently got a call from you and went out a while later."
"I didn't call her."
"Who called her if you didn't?"
"Fuck! It probably was James. And she probably went to him. No!" I yelled as I hung up again. You have got to be kidding me. The bastard has her. He has my Autumn. NO! I need her! I need her to take care of me! I need her to be with me! I need her to make me smile! I fell down to my knees and yelled out of desperation. NO! This can't be happening. I can't lose the two women I have ever loved to this bastard. I have to find Autumn. To tell her I love her. To be with her.
Tears and cries heaved form my chest. I beat the ground. I needed her back with me. I needed her to believe me. I had hurt her. I walked away from her. I walked away and hurt her. I should've let her in. I should have cared for her more. I should have just told her.
