“Beautiful Restaurant, huh?.....” she said in order to start a conversation with her so called boyfriend.

The 24-year old Special Agent at the City Security Squad(C.S.S.). The guy well praised by the C.S.S. The guy not so popular with the ordinary day-to-day life people. The guy who was a great teacher for the junior agents.

Not really paying attention to his girlfriend's words, gave a stupid, lame reply, saying,

“Yeah.......”

“Oh! You got me a bunch of....... Daffodils?...” She said not much cheered-up to see that. Now who in this world has ever seen giving his girl a bunch of daffodils on their Relationship Anniversary. We all know that its always roses.

“Yeah........” came another lame reply.

“Isn’t it great to know that its our third Relationship Anniversary?”

“Yeah.......” he said again.

Okay, so this was the third time he said that ‘Yeah’ which meant that something was wrong. Whats happening? Its their third anniversary and they should be happy about this but instead they are sitting like on the verge of a break-up.

“And you know-“

“Jeanette”, he began suddenly, cutting her-off. This is the first time in three years that he has called her with her full name. Usually it was ‘Jean’ or ‘Sweeto’. Seriously something was wrong.

She saw him looking around in every possible place of the restaurant. Maybe searching for the waiter.

But, actually he was looking at every person’s faces as if checking on them. Although Jean didn’t understand this, its his responsibility to take care of her. After all, his enemies could be anywhere around...

He was looking at each of their faces. From the millionaires to the middle class people. From the cute couples like them to the group of kids partying.

She simply nodded her head, urging him to go on and so he began.

“Jean I-uh-I-I-I think we should go somewhere else. ” There... he said it and waited for her to reply.

She always had these moments. Moments like whenever they were out on a date his Boss used to call-up and start his speech. ’Special Agent Joseph Stevens you are needed for a mission’ , ‘Jose this mission is really important’ , ‘Jose, the city needs you’. He would use one of these slogans and Jose would leave. Whenever they planned on seeing each other Jose himself would call her up and make an excuse of his own. ‘Jean, I’m sorry but this mission is really important’ , ‘Jean, there is this badass guy’ , ‘So sorry Sweeto....’ and the list of his own excuses goes on. She always accepted him like he was but he never knew how much this was breaking her. And she’s not going to endure it any more.

“No!” she yelled.

“What?” he asked.

“No! No we’re not going anywhere. Not until I have my dinner. Not until something goes down my alimentary canal. ”

“But Jean_”

“Please Jose its always been like this. But today you’re gonna listen to me”

“Fine. Chew this and we walk out” he said pulling out a mint-flavoured chewing gum from his pocket.

“No!” she yelled again, attracting a lot of diners in their direction.

He passed a hand through his hair. Tension getting all over him.

He also had these moments. Moments where he would have to leave her alone at the movie halls, the cafe or the restaurants. Moments where he would have to call her up and apologize for cancelling another date with her, and that too just for his job. He hated this a lot. He never liked doing this to her but deep down they both knew that his missions were important.

“Jean, please try to understand. Its very-”

“Jose stop it! You’ve always chosen your job and I never complained about this. Do you know how I feel when you cancel our dates? Do you know how I feel when you leave me alone, all to myself in the middle of a date? Do you know how I bear those taunting stares of people when you leave me in the middle of a date? Do you know how I feel when you always choose your job over me? Tell me...”

“Jean, I know how you feel and-”

“No you don’t. You never understand me. Never!”

“But Jean-”

“Thats it! We’re -”

She never got to finish her sentence as they saw bullet shots in the left corner of the restaurant.

They turned around to see shots in the right corner. They realized that the very next one was their turn, the middle row-diners. They immediately ran to the counter for safety.

“Whats happening?” she asked.

“They’re here.” he replied in a deep, grim voice.

“Huh?” she asked but he didn’t reply.

What does he mean? Who’s here? Why does he sound so horrified?

She opened her mouth to ask him again but he took her by the arm and dragged her behind the counter and made her to bend down, making her sit like that.

“Stay here and whatever happens don’t........ dare to come out. ” He said in a commanding tone.

She again tried to say something but he got up to leave. She had a bad feeling about all of this.

He stood at a distance of three metre from the counter. He saw four men coming in his direction. They were no ordinary men but some of the most skilled gunmen from the Underworld. As they approached him, he saw those lewd wide grins on their face.

“Hello, Special Agent. Don’t you think its so interesting that we all are here at same time. What a co-incidence. ” said one them still grinning.

“Lets just cut short the greetings and get to the point. So what exactly do you want?” Jose asked.

“You know that very well”

“I guess I don’t”

“Oh come on Agent Stevens. You know it. Now tell us where’s your girl?”

“what sort of a girl? A friend, a sister, a daughter, a niece –“

“A girlfriend. ”

“Sorry but I don’t have one. ”

“Really. ”

He signaled one of his men and the guy went to the counter, going behind it to drag the girl out, throwing her towards Jose.

“Hands at the back, you two. ” the man, probably their leader said with a wide grin.

It was a lucky day for them. They had caught their biggest enemy, the young Special Agent Joseph Stevens and so one of them called up their Godfather to inform him about their victory.

“Hand me your purse. ” murmured Jose, knowing that both their hands were tied with ropes.

Although she was confused, she knew very well that he was good in such situations, so instead of arguing, she swiftly moved her hands back and he caught her purse without anyone noticing. He fidgeted his right hand and a chisel came out from the sleeve of his shirt.

While he was busy cutting the ropes, their leader ordered one of his men to shoot the young couple. The said guy motioned towards Jose and now was standing just at a distance of 1 feet from him. He grinned at Jose as he took out his revolver but could not shoot him. As he tried to pull the trigger, he was hit hard on his head by the purse in Jose's hand, consisting of his revolver. Yup! He asked Jean to hide his revolver there purposefully.

The impact of the purse was so hard the guy fell to the floor.

Seeing this, the other three men ran towards him. He ripped open the purse and took out his revolver, shooting two of them. But the third one crouched down and pulled Jose's leg by a metal chain to which he fell to the floor. Shit. Now the revolver was at a good distance from his reach, but instead of worrying he pulled out the chisel again and threw it at the guy, getting shot at his right forearm in the process. The guy fell to the floor with a thud. Quickly removing the chains, he got up back to Jean and smirked at their leader, the only guy left.

He took her hand and the two moved to the exit, obvious of the evil maniac-like laugh of the so called leader. Although confused, they left the restaurant ignoring all the public attention and walked to the 'Parking Zone', only to find thirty men from the underworld waiting for them.

Uh...oh...

The two turned back, now marching towards the main road but were caught by the men.

Jose moved his hand to his pocket but soon realized that he had left his revolver and chisel inside the Restaurant. Shit again. Now he was bare-handed. He lashed a few kicks and punches at two-three of them but could not defeat them.

“Whoa... Whoa... Whoa... There... Stop already, Agent...” said the same guy, the leader. He had followed them outside the restaurant and so they were caught. It was all planned. “You know there's no way you can take thirty men bare-handed?”

Now Jean started feeling guilty.

If only she would have listened to him. If only she would have accepted his offer to another restaurant. If only she would have accepted his words without arguing. But now there was no way out and it was all because of her stupid thinking.

He stopped, his shoulders slumping down.

“Alright you can have me..,” he said seeing the guy grinning yet again, “..but only if you allow me to call the Back-up and get Jean out of this. No more fighting. Leave her out of this. You want me, so its just you and me. Don't drag her into this. ”

Now Jean was feeling guiltier. Why was he giving up already?

“You want her out of this, then you swear that you won't fight back anymore. ” the leader addressed to Jose.

He looked at them, then turned his gaze towards Jean, and answered with a simple nod of his head, “My back-up is on its way. Just leave her...”

They gave Jean one of the most wicked grin, in a tone of yes, which made her shiver, both in fear and worry.

Just then the Back-up arived consisting of a driver and five other men.

“Sir..” said one of them to Jose, giving him a salute.

Jose ordered him to take Jean away from the site to her home. She followed the men to their car, but stopped in her tracks when she heard wincing from Jose. She turned to look they had already started hitting him but what got her was that he wasn't hitting 'em back. Then she realized, he had promised not to fight back and that too just for her sake.

She ran back towards him, blocking the leader from hitting Jose.

She bent down to him, “Jose... Why are you doing this?... Stoppp... Pleasssssse.......”

He tried to sit up, brushing some locks of her face, “Cause I Love You...”

The words were simple but meant a lot to her. Tears started brimming her eyes and she started sobbing. Oh... How he wanted to make this night a special moment for her but couldn't. It was his fault. He should've given her more importance than his job...

He couldn't cry. Not at such moment. It would make him look weak to his enemy.

“I-I'm sorrryy, I spoiled it all...” he just couldn't get the right words.

“You didnot.” she said shaking her head. They both embraced each-other for a good half minute, then he let go, signaling his men. They took Jean, each in one hand, dragging her to their car. Inspite of her protests, they had to force her into the car. The engine started and the car was now in motion. She still kept banging at the window, trying to break through and then he gave her one of the most charming, sweet and loving smile ever.

The car was now out of the parking lot. Suddenly hearing the sound of six-ten gun shots, she stopped her constant banging, looking down to her feet. Closing her eyes, she could only hear four words... Four words that kept ringing in her ear.
