After the paramedics bandaged Luis' arm, he made them check
out Sheridan and the baby. She had said she was fine, but Luis wanted to make sure. There was no way he was going
to take any chances now. When the paramedics told him everything was okay, he let out a sigh of relief. He had
been worried after they hit the ground so hard. Thank god, everything was all right. He'd never forgive himself
if something happened to Sheridan or the baby.
"Luis," Sheridan said placing her arm around his waist. "Can we go back inside now? I'm not really
in the mood to go to the museum and the beach anymore."
He wasn't either. In fact, he was going to get them on the next plane to Harmony. He hated to cut their honeymoon
so short, but he didn't really have a choice. Someone had just tried to kill them and he couldn't protect Sheridan
and the baby here. It was way too open for his liking. "Yeah, we've already give the police our statements.
We really need to go in and start packing anyway."
"Packing?" She asked coming around to stand in front of him. Her blue eyes wide with concern. "We're
"Yes," he said begging her with his eyes not to fight him on it. "It's too dangerous, here."
"But Luis how do we even know that man was shooting at us? Couldn't he just have easily been after someone
Luis had thought that at first, but his gut said no. His gut said they weren't out of danger yet. "My gut
says it was us he was after. The bullets sprayed all around us Sheridan. It wasn't some random shooting. He
meant to kill us. But I promise you, I'm going to find out who the bastard is and then, I'm going to make him
Sheridan suddenly shivered and Luis wrapped his arms around her. "I'm sorry, Sher. This is not how I pictured
our honeymoon in paradise."
"Me either." Sheridan said staring into his eyes. "I understand why you want to leave and I won't
fight you on it."
Luis raised a brow. "Really?"
"Yes," she said giving him a small strained smile. "It's not just us anymore. We have to do what's
best for the baby and if you say we are in danger here, then we have to leave. I've learned my lesson about trusting
your gut instinct. It's saved my life way too many times to discount it."
Luis nodded and placed a kiss on her lip ruby colored lips. "Thank you for not fighting me on this. I wouldn't
leave if I didn't think it was necessary."
"I know." she whispered as she stepped back out of his embrace and grabbed his hand pulling him back
inside the safety of the hotel. "Now let's go pack so we can go home."
The man watched as the couple boarded the plane back
to the states. He didn't like the fact that they were leaving. It would make it harder for him to complete his
job. But he would complete it, he thought. All he had to do was find out where they were going.
Then again knowing what he did about the cop, he wouldn't be at all surprised if they went back to Harmony. And
if that was the case, well then, this time the cop had made a grave error in judgement. Because not only was Harmony
his hometown, but it was also the one place where no one would question his appearance. He could blend in and
no one would know what he was up to. Ah, yes, he prayed they would go back to Harmony, because if they did, it
would make his job a whole lot easier.
