In the End

Chapter 10
"Excuse me?" Sheridan asked.

"You're not going anywhere," Luis repeated. He motioned to the window. "It's too dangerous with this kind of weather." Sheridan looked outside and saw what he was talking about. The wind had picked up speed since she had come here, and now it howled and thrashed the trees around. A light drizzle had started to fall. He was right, it was too dangerous. But she wasn't going to just sit here. She had to get out of this house.

"It doesn't look that bad to me," she lied. "But if you insist, I'll call a cab." Luis looked at her angrily.

"Excuse us for a second," he growled. He grabbed Sheridan's arm and pulled her over to the side, making sure he didn't hurt her.

"What the hell do you think you're doing?" she hissed.

"I could ask you the same question. You know you shouldn't go out there, yet you insist on putting your life in danger."

"News flash, Luis. In case you haven't noticed, you're not my bodyguard anymore, and what I do with my life isn't any of your business!"

"This isn't just about you. Other people beside yourself could get hurt. I'm a cop. It's my job to protect all the citizens of Harmony," Luis hissed back. "But then again, you don't care who you hurt, as long as you get what you want."

Sheridan was irate. "What the hell are you talking about?"

Luis shook his head. "Forget it. Forget I said anything. But you're still not going anywhere."

"You're not the only one with a job. I have to work too. So if you'll excuse me "

"Fine," Luis said. "You can go. But I'm driving." He walked to the closet and got out his coat. "Even with your spotless driving record," he stated sarcastically. "I think it would be better if I drove you there." Sheridan opened her mouth to protest, but then closed it. If this was the only way to get home, she would take it. The only thing she had a problem with was that she would have to endure Luis the whole way there. Sheridan grabbed her coat and purse and followed Luis out the door.

Ethan and the others at the party just stood there, not sure what had just happened. Ethan spoke first. "This day keeps getting more interesting by the minute. First Sheridan comes home, and from the looks of it, she and Luis just agreed on something." Everyone mumbled in agreement, then went back to what they were doing.

"So what brings you to Harmony?" Beth asked, her curiosity with this stranger growing every minute.

Nick set his mug down. "Business," he replied. "My company's opening up a new branch in Castleton. I volunteered to help it take its first steps. You know, buy an office plot, advertise, help it get set up." He hoped he didn't sound like a big shot businessman. The last thing he wanted to do was to drive this woman away with "office talk". He knew she wasn't the type to get impressed by it.

"Oh," she said indifferently. He was right.

"Tell me more about Harmony. You said you lived here almost all your life." Beth flashed him a smile. He declared a silent victory. It had worked.

"You see," she started. Nick eased into his chair and cupped his hands around his mug of hot chocolate, never taking his eyes off hers.


Sheridan stared silently out the window, watching the raindrops roll down and leave a watery path as they zigzagged to the bottom. She was afraid to turn her head, afraid to look at the man driving next to her in fear of what she might feel. Or what she might remember. She shifted in her seat, now staring at the dim, dreary road in front of her.

Luis glanced at her. She seemed so distant, so tense. He wondered what was on her mind. There was a time when he was able to look into her crystal eyes and see exactly what was in her heart. But that was before. Not now. Now, she was shutting him out. Again. He reminded himself that he shouldn't care. That he should shut her out too. But he did care. Luis swallowed hard, forcing himself to concentrate on the road in front of him. He gripped the steering wheel, letting the rhythmic movement of the windshield wipers calm his beating heart.

"Turn here," she said, her voice barely above a whisper. Luis did as he was told and pulled up in front of a two-story beach house. A flash of lightning illuminated it for a brief second, revealing the walkway leading to the front door. A deep rumble of thunder soon followed. Sheridan turned her head to meet Luis's eyes. "Maybe...maybe you should stay a little bit, just until the weather lets up." Luis searched her eyes. Was she concerned about him, or just being courteous? He didn't find an answer. She turned away too quickly. "It does look pretty bad. I guess I could wait it out here. If it's not too much trouble," he added quickly. Sheridan climbed out of the car. "Not at all." Luis followed her. "It's the least I can do." Luis quickly hid the disappointment in his eyes. So she was just being courteous. As he walked through her front door, he wondered if he was making a mistake accepting Sheridan's invitation.
