We had been sitting in the tiny office for two hours waiting for some FBI agents who were informed of our whereabouts as soon as it was reported that we were trying to cross the border between Mexico and the United States.
The door to the little office opened and we looked up to see a tall 'gringo' walk in with two other agents behind him. The man who walked in first seemed to be the one in charge, he was a handsome Caucasian male who looked to be in his early thirties: dressed in black pants, button-up shirt and tie, over his shirt he wore a bulletproof vest.
I had to bite my lip to keep from laughing when I noticed Nessa mouthing the word "Hot" at Sofi and me.
We were all silent as he read over some papers he held in his hands.
"Vanessa Lazcano, Sofia Lazcano and Gabriela Romano. I'm agent Christopher Hayes and I work for the CIA" He said our names without taking his eyes from the documents in hand. "This bullshit report I'm reading over right now is nothing but lies. I want to know the truth, where were you girls the past few months?"
A CIA agent? I thought we were dealing with the FBI?!
"You've got to be kidding me!" Nessa exploded. "We've been waiting for you for the past two hours and now you're calling us liars?!"
"This is a total misunderstanding" Sofi gave her sister a dirty look before putting on a sweet smile. "We already told the officers everything, we went on a road trip all over Mexico with a few of the friends we made in Acapulco. We tried calling our parents a few times to let them know we were okay but the calls wouldn't go through. We just want to go back home."
"From what your parents have told me, you girls have never been this irresponsible..." Agent Hayes looked at all three of us with calculating eyes. "My guess is that you might have run into some familiar faces while you were in Mexico." he looked at me pointedly.
"You think I ran into my father? I haven't seen him in years." I lied without hesitation. "I've made it very clear to my father's side of the family that I don't want anything to do with them... the only reason you're so suspicious about all this is because I'm a Romano."
Agent Hayes glared at me. "I don't believe you."
"I don't care what you believe." I snapped back at him. "We've already given our side of the story, you have no reason to keep us here...we just want to go home!"
"There's been reports that you were seen in Culiacan, Sinaloa with Santiago Bustamante."
"Santiago Bustamante? I've never met him in person." I shook my head.
"But you do know who he is?" he pressed.
When he realized I wouldn't say anything else he pulled out a pen and signed the papers without taking his eyes off me. He gave the papers to the other agent and ordered him to bring our belongings.
"You girls are free to go." he said through gritted teeth.
"Finally" Nessa stood up from her chair and walked out the door without looking back, Sofi followed right behind her but before I could join my friends Christopher Hayes blocked the door with his tall frame.
"MOVE" I snapped at him, trying to squeeze my way through the door to no avail.
"Tell Santi that Christopher Hayes is in charge of bringing his ass to prison. He'll know who I am." he smirked at me and then stepped aside to let me go.
After another long hour of having to wait for a ride we finally made it to Brownsville, Texas where we rented a car to get to our 5 hour long destination: Austin, Texas. While we were in the car I sent a text to Santiago to let him know we were finally free, he sent me back a text with an address.
