Luis opened the door to the Crane jet and was just about to
walk through when Sheridan placed a hand on his arm to stop him. He turned and grabbed her hand, lacing her fingers
with his. "Let's go home Mrs. Lopez-Fitzgerald."
She smiled that brilliant three watt smile that he loved so much. "Okay, Mr. Lopez-Fitzgerald ."
He took her hand and helped her out of the plane. Then placed a soft gentle kiss on her lips. "I love you."
Her blue eyes were lit with love and he knew at that very moment that he had never loved her more. "I love
He smiled and together hand in hand they walked down the ramp. Luis noticed Antonio walking toward them and felt
some of the tension leave his body. The minute Antonio reached them, he enveloped them both in a big hug. "Glad
you two are all right. Now, either one of you care to tell me what the hell is going on?"
Luis laughed. Leave it to his brother to cut right to the chase. "Yeah, but would you mind if we got out
of here first?"
Antonio nodded. "All right."
Luis noticed that Sheridan had walked ahead of them. He loved watching her walk. She had the sexiest walk, he
thought, and he couldn't wait until they got home. She dropped her purse and bent down to pick it up. And that's
when he heard the shot. He turned toward the sound and saw Mike, the man once hired to protect her, a few feet
away holding a gun. After that, everything seemed to happen in slow motion. Luis took off running toward Sheridan
while Antonio ran toward Mike. A mere second after Luis jumped in front of Sheridan, the gun went off again.
The force of the bullet knocked him to the ground. As he was falling he saw Antonio jump Mike and he heard Sheridan's
bloodcurdling scream. She was leaning over him a second later, but her image was blurry. Like she was miles away
from him. He heard her tell him to hang on. He heard her tell him not to leave her and as the darkness swallowed
him, he heard her tell him, she loved him.
