Jack was on the porch playing with his toy car.
I walked out with his backpack. "Alright buddy, we gotta go or we'll be late." I said, picking him up. "Come on."
We began walking towards the van. "Okay, uhh. What do you think? Parking brake slide right up to the school?"
"Where's mommy?" Jack said, still playing with his car.
"I don't know She's up there. She's coming."
"Oh." He said.
"Watch your head." I told him, putting him in his seat, buckling him up.
I heard Mia and Dom come out.
"You ready?" I asked Jack. "There we go." I finished buckling him in, ensuring he was comfortable.
He threw his car out.
"Hey buddy, cars don't fly." I said, going to get his car.
"Cars don't fly!" I heard Jack repeat excitedly, causing me to chuckle.
"That one did huh?"
In that moment, I realized that I had a beautiful family to call my own; A beautiful wife and a handsome son. Nothing mattered more to me than family and keeping them safe.
That's one of many things I'm proud to say I've learned from Dom.
He's not at all what I thought he would've been. If anything, he's better.
Had I not taken that first mission... I would've never met this wonderful family. Never met Dom. Never met Mia and had our beautiful son, Jack.
Now that I've met them, I couldn't imagine my life without them.
"Dom, you have a package out here." I heard Mia yell. "From Tokyo."
I walked out to her. "Tokyo? What's Han trying to convert me over to a turbo charger?" We both chuckled.
We watched Brian interact with Jack.
Jack threw his car out the car.
Brian picked it up before saying, "Hey buddy, cars don't fly."
I chuckled when Jack repeated "Cars don't fly."
I looked at Mia. "Brian in a minivan." I said. "Things have changed."
"He's struggling Dom." She told me. "He doesn't want me to see it... but the white picket fence is like
an anchor for him. I can tell. I tried to talk to him the other night. Do you know what he said? He doesn't miss the girls. He doesn't miss the cars. He misses... the bullets."
"Let him settle in. Give him time."
"How does nine months sound?" I looked at her. Is she saying what I think she's saying? She smiled and nodded. "I'm having another baby."
She looked down before looking back at me. "And you didn't tell him, did you?" I asked. By the look on her face, I knew she hadn't. "You gotta tell him."
She looked back at Brian and Jack. "I don't want him to be disappointed with this life... with me."
She finished, looking back towards me.
"He will never be disappointed with you. You're the best thing that's ever happened to him." I told her.
She hugged me. "Thank you." She said before going to join Brian and Jack.
My cell phone rang, so I answered it, without checking caller ID.
"Yeah?" I asked.
"Dominic Toretto." A British voice said. "You don't know me... you're about to."
I looked at my phone and saw the call was coming from Tokyo. I looked back at the package.
I didn't even think. I just ran to protect Mia and her baby. "Get down!" I tackled her, getting her out of the way as the house exploded.
Mia and I laid there in shock. We looked over to see Brian had been smashed against the window but managed to keep Jack safe.
Mia's motherly instincts kicked in. "JACK! JACK!" She began running to Brian and Jack. Brian had taken Jack out of the van and they were now trying to soothe his crying.
I looked toward the burning house, when I suddenly remembered Isabella had been inside.
Mia must've seen my face. Her and Brian walked over to me with Jack.
"Where's Isabella?" Mia asked.
All I could do was stare at the burning house.
"No. Please no." I heard Mia whisper before breaking down in tears. Brian was left to console both Mia and Jack.
I was too in shock to do anything.
We just got her back... and now she's gone for good.
I'm gonna make sure the guy who did this pays for what he's done.
I was standing in the room Dom said was mine, looking around.
All of a sudden, my phone rang.
I picked it off the bed and answered it, not looking at the caller ID.
"Hello?" I asked.
"Get out of the house." A British voice said, sounding vaguely familiar.
"If you want your family to live you will get out of the house now." I soon recognized the voice as Owen's brother, Deckard. "Leave out the back door and pack some clothes with you. If your not out within the next 10 minutes, I will be forced to hurt more of your family..."
"Let's just say... Bye-bye Han."
I gasped. "You didn't? Please tell me you didn't."
"I did. Now get dressed and get out." He hung up.
I threw a whole bunch of clothes in two suitcases, trying to hurry and fit as much clothes as I could.
It was a hot day so I wore black denim daisy dukes and a red and black tank top. I grabbed a sweater, just in case.
Looking out the window at the people I've come to know as family, I sighed before walking downstairs with my two suitcases full of clothes.
I'm really gonna miss them. But, I'm a fighter. Owen couldn't win and neither will Deckard.
I walked outside before turning around to stare at the house one last time.
I was staring at the house and didn't hear anyone walking up behind me.
I felt someone grab me. I went to scream, but the person covered my mouth.
"If you want them to live, you'll be quiet." I recognized it as Deckard. I quickly nodded. "Good. Now let's go."
He began dragging me over to a black car. We hopped inside, me not so willing, but wanting to protect my family.
When we got inside he said, "Can't have them getting in the way." He pulled a box with a red button.
"What are you doing?" I asked, incredulously.
"Like I said... can't have them in the way." He went to push the button, but I began fighting against him as much as I could, trying to stop him from pushing the button.
Unfortunately, he knocked me back long enough to get out his phone. He held me back as he made the call.
"Dominic Toretto." He said and my eyes widened. "You don't know me... you're about to." Then he pushed the button.
I watched in horror as the house blew up. I stared at it and began crying as he began driving us away.
"Why are you crying? You should be happy. I'm bringing you back to your real family... Owen. He's waiting for you in a hospital in London."
"He's not my family. They're not my family. My family was at that house... at least some of them."
"Wow. They've already brainwashed you."
"They haven't brainwashed me." I said. "They haven't told me anything about my past. I can't remember really anything before I was 5. Why is that?"
"Your dad told you. You were in an accident."
"My 'dad'?" I chuckled.
"What? They brainwash you about him too?"
"They've never brainwashed me about anything. They actually care about me. I know they do."
"They care about you?" He bitterly laughs. "They don't care about you. They never cared about you. They'll never care or trust you."
"That's not true." I said, before turning my back to him. I tuned him out and just looked out the window for the remainder of the ride.
Not long after the house blew up and we lost Isabella, I received a call. It was Elena. She told me the DSS Building was attacked the night before and Hobbs was in the hospital.
I'd sent Mia and Brian with Jack to an old friend and his wife in the DR.
I arrived at the hospital and Elena met me in the front.
"Shattered his collarbone, fractured his leg in two places. He only regained consciousness this morning. First thing he said was, "Get me Dom"." She said, beginning to lead me to Hobbs' room. "He's in there."
I began walking toward his room, but stopped midway and turned back to Elena. "You okay?" I asked her.
"I'm fine." She said. "He's waiting. Let's go."
We both walked over to Hobbs' room.
When we reached his room, I saw he had a large cast on his right arm and left leg. He was watching some cartoon. Probably the only thing on.
"Got something for you." Elena said before I entered the room. "Your files." She handed him some files.
"Thank you." He said.
"You risk life and limb to save the free world... and what do they give you? Jell-O and a bad 70's TV show." I said.
He chuckled, which sounded more like a grunt. "Y'know, it's got its perks. Sponge baths ain't that bad."
"Dad!" A voice exclaimed from the corner of the room.
I looked to the sound of the voice to see a young girl sitting there.
"I'm sorry baby." Hobbs told her.
" 'Dad'?" I asked, shocked.
"Honey, I want to introduce you to somebody. He's a, uhh... He's an old friend." He said. "Go on and say hello."
The little girl walked up to me. "Dominic Toretto, right?" She asked. I nodded slightly. "My dad said, he kicked your ass once."
I ignored that and walked around Hobbs bed. "Who did this?" I asked.
"You remember Owen Shaw? The one we tore half of London down trying to get. Well... This is his big, bad brother. Take a look at this." He handed me a file folder.
"Deckard Shaw." I said, reading his file.
"British Special Forces assassin. The kind of unique asset... that no government would ever admit to employing."
"Black Ops boys."
"Worse. They created a monster. They felt Shaw was a necessary evil until eventually... they decided he was unnecessary. The powers that be, felt that he knew just a little bit too much. The asset became a liability. So they sent in 20 elite operatives to retire him."
"And they missed." I said.
"That was 6 years ago and Shaw's been a ghost ever since."
"Until now." I said. "How do I find him?"
"The official answer is: you don't." He said.
"He killed Han and Isabella." I saw the shock on his face. I nodded. "Almost killed Mia, Jack, Brian and I too."
"He also tried to put me in a body bag, too. Which is why when I get out, I'm gonna put a hurt on him so bad... he's gonna wish his mother had kept her legs closed." He said. "But until then, my official answer to you... is stand down."
"Now you know I can't do that." I told him.
"I do know you, Dom. Which is why now I give you a brother to brother answer. You do whatever it is you gotta do." He said. "When you find that son of a bitch... Just do me one favour."
"What's that?" I asked.
Montecristo, Dominican Republic
We'd arrived in the DR not too long ago. Jack & I were going to stay with Dom's friend, Mando, and his wife. Brian was soon leaving to join Dom and the rest of the team.
I was holding Jack and walking and talking with Mando, his wife following behind us.
"Thank you so much for letting us stay, Mando. I hope it's not a problem." I said.
"Listen, Dom needed a safe delivered to Rio in two days. That was a problem. Hosting his family in
the Dominican Republic, that is vacation." He said. "Anyone messes with you here... they're messing with the entire country. You'll be safe." He cell phone rang. I left Jack with Mando's wife as he answered it. "Yeah, they're here. I picked them up myself at the airport. Hold on. Your brother." He held out the phone and I took it.
"Dom." I said.
"Yeah, Mia, it's me." He said. "How's it going there?"
"We're at Mando's. This place is like a fortress." I said looking around the place at all the armed guards. "You should see Brian. He's in full FBI mode. He built a surveillance hub in Mando's garage and everything. What about you? Did you find out who's after us?"
"Looks like the sins of London have followed us home." He said. "How did Buster take the news?"
"I can't tell him. If he knew about the baby, he'd stay here with us." I said. "And with all that's going on, you're gonna need him by your side. Just watch out for him. Keep him safe. And come home together."
"Tell Brian I'll see him in LA in two days." He said.
"Where are you going?" I asked.
"Tokyo." He said. "I'm bringing Han home."
After that, we said our goodbyes and he hung up.
I went into the garage to see Brian listening to the news.
"Authorities are still trying to determine... the motive behind this daring attack here at the office...
of the US Diplomatic Security Service in downtown Los Angeles... less than 36 hours ago. Facts are still coming in... but what is known is the suspect entered the building's 4th floor..."
"Hey." He said when I came up behind him and rubbed his shoulder.
"You okay?" I asked.
"Yeah." He said, but he still looked stressed out. "This guy's just, relentless."
"That's why Dom needs you. You two need to find this guy and you need to stop him... before he does any more damage to our family." I told him.
"I just... I've screwed up so many things. I couldn't live with myself if I screwed this up, too." He said.
"You won't." I assured him. "I believe in you. I believe in us. That's all that matters. I love you, Brian." We kissed. "Love you, baby. Just promise me. After this, we're done. No more jobs, no more enemies. Come back to us."
"I won't let you down Mia." He said.
I just hope everything turns out alright and everyone comes home safe.
We've already lost 3 members of our family. We don't need to lose any more.
