Chapter 16

Zack was watching a movie when Anya came in to sit with him. He did not say anything as she sat down next to him. After about twenty minutes she slumped into him and he thought that she wanted to be closer to him until he heard her heavy breathing. She had fallen asleep on him. Not that he blamed her. She had a very long day. He’s surprised it took her this long to fall asleep.

Zack waited until the end of the movie before he attempted to move her. She was not that heavy maybe 120 pounds, but she was tall. If he had to guess, he would say that she was around 5’9”-5’10”. He lifted her up and started to walk to her bedroom. She was very beautiful when she was asleep. She looked less worried. Before he even made it out of the living room, Anya started to stir.

Opening her eyes, she looked up at him and smiled. That smile was aimed directly at him and he loved it. He loved every minute that they spent together. How could he not?

“Hey.” She said with a big yawn.

“Hey,” he had to smile at her; she just looked so cute. “You fell asleep and I was just bringing you to your room.”

“Going to have your way with me while I’m sleeping are you?” she said with a laugh.

“You wish.” He put her down and stepped away from her. She could not know how much he really did want to have his way with her.

“Well, I’m not protesting now am I?” she turned and sauntered down the hall.

He wanted her so bad right now it hurt. But he would not do anything until after the case was solved. Maybe after everything was said and done that they could give it a shot. But until then, he really had to keep his hands to himself. If she could manage not to give him that look like she wants him every five seconds, then maybe he could make it.

Zack went back into his room to sleep, even though he knew he would not get to sleep tonight. How could he with Anya right across the hall. Sleeping in his house, in his sheets, in his T-shirt. Wow, he really needed to stop this thinking before it got him in trouble. Closing his eyes Zack tried to get some sleep. It took longer than normal, but eventually he did get to sleep.


It was almost time. He had everything ready for her arrival, the car was ready and so was the plane. He and Anya were going far away. Some place where no one would ever find them. She would like that, just him and her. The only problem was that stupid cop. He really needed to get rid of him. That car did not work at all, how was it that he survived that?

The man paced, thinking of different ways to get rid of the cop. How dare he have his women? What right does he have to take her away from him? None that what right he had; none at all! Looking at his watch, he saw that it was almost three in the morning and Anya would be sleeping.  Just thinking about her calmed him down. She would be curled up on her side thinking about him. He just knew that she was missing him.

She was supposed to go on vacation two days ago, but never left due to the ‘incident’ that had her running to that damn cop. He really needed to get her away before he corrupted her and made her turn against him. He could tell that he had been wearing her down. That he was starting to get to her. Soon there would be no one to stop them from being together.


Anya woke up the next morning early. It was only seven o’clock when she opened her eyes. She tried to go back to sleep, but it was not working. She was awake and ready to start the day. She got up and went into the kitchen to get something to eat. Zack was not up yet and she did not want to wake him. Pulling out a bowl and cereal, Anya sat at the table to eat breakfast.

“I could have made you something,” Zack said, his deep voice making her shiver when she saw him coming in from the hallway.

He was all rumpled and he had bed head, but he looked damn sexy like that. If he was not determined to stay at least ten feet from her, she would have jumped him right then and there. But she had more self-control than that. Barely. She tried to reign in her ragging hormones before they got her in trouble.

“I’m good with just cereal; its more then what I usually eat in the morning anyway.” Anya said with a big smile.

“Only if you’re sure.” He looked like a cute puppy that wanted to please his master.


With a shrug, Zack headed to the cabinet to get his own bowl and cereal. Sitting down opposite her, they ate in silence for a good ten minutes until they were done. After rinsing the dishes and putting them in the dishwasher, they went into the living room to watch some T.V. Being stuck in the house all day was not what Anya considered fun. Now if she was down ‘fun’ things with Zack she would not mind as much.

For most of the day, all they did was watched T.V. and eat some snacks. Around two in the after noon Danny called and Zack went into the other room to talk to him. Anya was most certain that they were talking about Tom and if he had anything to do with all the events that have happened.

Anya wanted to know what they were talking about, so she snuck over and listen to Zack and his end of the conversation.

“Are you sure?”

“Well, what do you think he has on her?”

“Could there be another reason for that. I don’t want to be accusing people for no good reason.”

“Oh, ok I’ll see what I can do.”

Anya did not get to hear the rest of the conversation because at that time her phone started to ring. Pulling it out of her pocket Anya looked at the caller ID. It was her mom, what had Zack told them about why she could not come home? Hoping that she would not screw it up, she answered the phone.

“Hello?” she asked hesitantly.

“Are you feeling better? Your boyfriend called and told me that you got the flu and could not come home for the weekend. And when did you get a boyfriend? I thought you were too busy to go out with anyone.” her mother asked.

Anya had to sigh. So that’s what he told her, she was to sick to go home. What was with the boyfriend part? And last night when he told the toe truck driver that she was his wife. Was it as he said, and it was just easier to tell him that they were together?

“Yes mom, I feel a little bit better; not enough to fly, but better. I’m sorry. Tell the family that I said hi?” she asked, even though she knew her mom would without her asking.

“Don’t worry about us honey. You just concentrate on getting better.” Her mother was always the one to worry about other’s more than herself.

“I will.”

“Now, tell me about this man you have been seeing. I only got to talk to him briefly but he sounded very nice.” Now came the hard part. What should she tell her mom about Zack? There were so many possibilities.

“He’s nice.” Was all that came out of her mouth
