………….. I watched as Kain Looked over toward where I was sitting, I froze half expecting him to recognize me and either pull out his gun or take off running. I rubbed the back of my neck and carried on looking as he looked back at Megan. He waited until she had walked back inside before he got back in his car and pulled out from the parking lot of the Inn, I let out a deep breath.


Okay I needed to regroup seeing Kain like this was like the dangerous Man I knew was gone… if a man trained to do with over three dozen target eradications under his belt could ever change. Kain’s car pulled up in front of the Café ten feet from where I was sitting… Regroup fast girl I moved in my seat as he got out of the car even behind the dark glasses I knew his eyes had taken in everything in the café outside of it and in the street. He walked inside; I closed my eyes and ran my fingers through my hair, my phone rang


Egan * Hey sweetheart

Me * Hi, everything okay?

Egan * Weber called raging over the way you spoke to him

Me * the ass deserved it

Egan * that I don’t doubt, he told me he wasn’t going to do what you asked that I was a fool for even letting a women into the business

Me * he’s intimidated by me

Egan * I don’t blame him… But he’s not calling off the hounds… I’m calling Sam, D and Casper back from Prague

Me * why?

Egan * to have your back

Me * It’s moving way faster here than I was expecting hold back on the guys

Egan * I know you can look after yourself but humor me

Me * give me twenty four hours, bring them back stateside by all means but give me twenty four hours

Egan * fine Honey please watch your back

Me * I will


I hung up as Kain walked by me taking a seat where he could see around without looking like he was keeping track on everything. I was angry as all hell with Weber and before this was done he’d face me and learn the hard way you don’t ignore this girl. I folded the paper and picked up my purse and coffee, I got up and walked across the patio to Kain’s table, not the way I’d wanted to get to this point with him but hell game plans change.


“Looks like I found the wild Cat” he frowned and looked up at me I pulled out a chair and say down He leant forward “Oh I’m feeling slightly offended Kain you don’t remember me” He pushed his glasses up on top of his head the color paling under his tan




“The one and only… you answered my ad” I picked up my coffee Kain was still staring at me




“Yes” I nodded slowly


“You… I mean…”


“Not like you not to be composed and flustered” I tipped my head and looked at him He took a deep breath and the impassive face I’d seen so many times was there


“Why are you here?” he picked up his coffee and shifted in his seat.


“I now you’re armed you don’t change overnight” I smiled but so am I “And I’m here because I was sent to track you”


“I’m out of it now and if the Boss wanted me done then and now offence they should have sent some one up for the job not an ATF agent” he finished his coffee


“You’ve been out of the loop for a while haven’t you… and it’s nice to know you forgot about me after Columbia” I shook my head “I love being a notch on the inside of a jungle hut” he remained impassive but picked his phone up from the table and hit the screen with his thumb


“Stay there… please stay where you are… something has come up… I’ll come for you in a while… I’m going to be okay… trust me… what have I always promised you even after I met Jessi and you and Cowboy jack ass got together?...  I promise two hours and I will be there with you stay in the grounds of the inn okay” Kain hung up the phone and the waitress came over and filled his coffee cup


“You were more than that” I frowned at him




“The comment you made before about being a notch on the wall of a jungle hut… You almost killed me and got yourself killed in the process” He sighed “You were scared out of your mind and you had lost that necklace” Okay feeling vulnerable that he’d remembered that detail. “And I was in need of a tension release”


“Ow well that stings” I shook my head


“You were one hell of a release it was like being in bed with a wild cat” he smirked a little “I still have a scar on my back from it”


“I bet mine beats yours” I took a deep breath


“So you’ve been sent to find me why?”


“When did you fall in love with Megan Miller?” he raised his eyebrows “Kain I’ve seen you with her this morning…”


“I’m seeing someone… I’ve moved on from the past”


‘You know I know were in Texas but right here there are no cows so why am I smelling bullshit?” I lent on the table and took off my sunglasses “I know she’s been seeing some asshole that really…”


“It was you” Kain frowned “You attacked Blake last night”


“I saw him knock her on her ass in the dirt because she didn’t want to blow him round the back of the bar” I shrugged “I’ve changed a lot since the last time you knew me… I did hear that he is walking around telling people three guys kicked his ass” Kain was watching me “I’m having to deal with a whole heap of real douche bags right now… Including James Weber” I saw a slight flinch in the cheek of Kain


“Weber sent you… what about the ATF or the CIA”


“Let’s say you and I have both parted ways with the people we worked for… under a cloud”


“You’re a private contractor?”


“Not really… it’s a little off my new line of work but Weber had found out somehow who I was and That I used to be your handler” Kain frowned “a two million dollar paycheck to track down you and Megan and keep my secret from my old Bosses I had to do it”


“How long did it take you t find us”


‘A week but I knew how to pull you out where no one else did” I took a  drink


“You’re selling me out” there was an edge to his voice “It’s not going to end well Evie”


“Typical man jump to the wrong conclusion… I took the money and the job because I have a new life and you saved mine I’m here to find out the other side to the story… I’ve had Weber’s” I ground my teeth “and I ain’t buying it… I’m here to help you and Megan”…………….

Wed, July 31st, 2013 9:03pm


im glad i got home from an ear piercing party.. went to my aunts for her birthday today.... and my cousins children were also there with their screaming and shouting.. so im glad im home..

and no.. i meant Kain's reaction.. as if he cant believe his eyes that she's the one sitting infront of him.. and dont think i didnt get when he said she was more than that... well Kain just one thing to tell you about that... it's your loss, she found a better man..... sigh..

Wed, July 31st, 2013 9:13pm


oh and i was showing my bestie the pictures of dante.. and for the first time my friend was SPEECHLESS...

Wed, July 31st, 2013 9:14pm


an ear piercing party LOL I love that idea... I didn't want her just to be just another girl in the night to him but she was just something in the moment and he'd remembered every detail about her... not sure how D will take it but you never know LOL I"m not bloody surprised even in the picture he could take your eye out

Wed, July 31st, 2013 9:46pm


Phewwww the first run in with these two went somewhat well. Not that I would expect Kain to initially believe her. But its a start...gets him thinking! And wait til he hears about what she's been up to since Panama.

Wed, July 31st, 2013 9:53pm


Sorry I was so in and out today...I've been trying to get the rest of my squad up to speed for the field next week. I swear I didn't know adults needed to be spoon fed and hand held to do something! LOL

Wed, July 31st, 2013 9:54pm


I didn't want her to tell him everything right out the gate and you can tell the two of them are working out each other and i'm taking it you're talking mostly men in the Squad (remember emotional range of a teaspoon that goes for life in general

Wed, July 31st, 2013 9:57pm


yea i know.. but unfortunately i couldnt find the ONE picture that could poke your eyes out.. you know.. the one completely nekkid at the pool..

Wed, July 31st, 2013 10:04pm


Mostly men would be right, all 20 or older...kinda sad! Oh well. At this point all I can say, is they had better be ready on Friday night, because we roll on Convoy Saturday morning. LOL I'd hate to be in a tent for two weeks, and not have something I needed! LOL

Wed, July 31st, 2013 10:13pm

Wed, July 31st, 2013 10:40pm


OOOO Off to read and I like your way of dealing with it I remember being head chef in College and when service didn't go as i wanted i used to close doors and windows shut off fans and turn up ovens and make the rest of the kitchen staff scrub it clean

Wed, July 31st, 2013 10:43pm


Nice...I like your style. Back in basic training if we f-ed up, they would put us in the oven, as they called it. It was a brick room where the windows are painted shut, and the heat is stuck on high. They'd smoke us in there until the walls cried. Torture in the most humane ways! LOL

Wed, July 31st, 2013 10:48pm

Wed, July 31st, 2013 10:54pm
