“Mark will be watching you for my own peace of mind and he can keep me updated when you can’t get to the phone.  I know you will be staying with Joe Landen and his family and that’s best for right now seeing as how you are being watched by the cops.”  “They are clueless and don’t believe that I killed anyone but how long do you think I’m going to have to stay with Joe and his family?”  “A few weeks just to let everything blow over I already have a plan to get the cops off your back” “ok sir I’ll do what I have to do…. I have to go I’ll call you when I get a chance. 

That night Pepper tossed and turned and couldn’t fall asleep she wasn’t worried about tomorrow meeting new people didn’t scare her not much did.  After two hours of tossing and turning she got out of bed and thought about making a break for it but with the cops watching her she couldn’t lead them to Tom.  So she started to work out the only thing she could do to keep her mind busy. 

She knew nothing of the outside world and pizza was only a fraction of all the things Tom had kept her from but she knew it was for her on good.  Tom said all the outside world would do is raddle her tranning and her focus and she couldnl't have that.  Tom had made Pepper into a weapon and she knew it but the thing was all she ever knew was fighting, shooting guns, working out and traning. Becoming a weapon the perfect weapon and that's all she cared about.  She waiting to prove to Tom and his  men and to herself that she was the perfect weapon and nothing was going to get in her way of doing just that.  So she made a little mistake getting caught by the cops and being made to live with a man she didn't know only the things her mother would tell her about him. To be made to live with him for a few weeks him and his family wouldn't get in her way either.

Five hours later…

“Pepper it’s time to get up… there’s breakfast in the lobby I’ll be down there waiting for you.  Joe say’s as he knocks on the door and Pepper opens her eyes and blinks a few times remembering where she’s at and what all has taken place.

“Ok Pepper today is day one” she puts on the clothes a pair of jeans and a t-shirt that Haley gave her along with socks and her black teeny shoes.  She pulls her very long hair up into a messy bun and brushes her teeth then takes  a few deep breaths.  She's not happy about this but she will do what she can and soon all of this will be over and she'll be back to her home with Tom in no time.
