CHAPTER 14

(August P.O.V.)

Mia and I went to the market to get some food since we don't have any. Mia and I are picking out some fruit when I feel someone grab my arm and start dragging me. I look and see that it is Vince and he has Mia too.

"Vince, what are you doing?" I ask trying to get away from him.
"Quiet! They've been tracking you," Vince says.
"I know they're here! Find them! GO! GO! Go!" I hear someone yell. We make it out safely and head back to the warehouse. I walk in with Vince and Mia behind me. Brian is working on a car before he looks up to see me coming in with Vince behind me. Brian stands up and starts to head towards Vince mad.

"It's okay. Wait!" I say pushing Brian back. "Reyes' guys were waiting for us at the market. Vince saved my life." Brian calms down and pulls me into a hug.
"You hungry?" I hear Dom ask.
"Yeah, sure." Vince answers.
"Good. Because you're saying grace," Dom says and we all smile.
"Thanks, Vince," Brian says to Vince. We all go our own ways. Vince and Mia go to catch up. Dom goes to work on his car. Brian and I join the rest of them, which were watching Tego and Santos cook.

"Yo, you burned it!" Santos says.
"Yo, this is how my momma does it. Relax," Tego says.
"Yeah, but your mom is the worst cook in the world," Santos says.
"Yo, don't you be talking about my momma," Tego says and we all laugh. Han walks off to talk to Gisele. I smile at Brian and give him a kiss on the cheek before walking over to talk to Dom. As I reach Dom, Vince comes in.

"Hey, Dom. Listen. I know you're all set for this job tomorrow, but if you need an extra man, I could..." Vince starts.
"You're in," Dom says.
"There's always room for family," I say.
"Thank you," Vince says.
"Get something to eat," Dom says.
"Yeah," Vince says.
"Can you believe Mia calls this a curse?" Dom asks motioning to his car.
"She might be right," Vince says. Then we head to go eat. I sit on Brian's lap after handing him a Corona when I have one of my own. Vince sits beside us with Mia on his lap. Mia has a Corona, which she is only going to drink one since she is pregnant. We sit and talk for a while until Rome comes over.

"We're less than 24 hours from the biggest celebration of our life. Y'all need a refill. This is serious stuff," Rome says handing us each a beer until he comes to Mia.
"No, I'm good," Mia says.
"Cheers, baby," Rome says trying to get her to take one.
"No, she can't," I say making Rome look at me like I was crazy and Vince, too.
"What do you mean?" Rome asks.
"She can't," I say again.

"What do you mean she can't?" Rome asks again. Brian and I take our hands and rub my stomach. "What is..." Rome trails off noticing our hands then looks at Mia finally getting it. "Are you serious right now?"  Mia nods.
"Really?" Vince asks Mia and she nods again. Vince gets a huge smile on his face.

"Why do I get the feeling that this has something to do with the quarter-mile?" Rome asks.
"No, that's messed up. No, you're not taking that from me," Brian says before anything else can be said about it.
"Congratulations," Gisele says hugging Mia and I kinda help but wish that I was Mia right at that moment, but she doesn't have the life I have so it is easier for her.

"Thank you," Mia says.
"How can you keep this a secret?" Tej asks.
"Crazy, huh?" Mia asks. They keep talking as Brian and I walk over to Dom.
"What is with the quarter-mile?" Brian asks Dom. Dom looks at me and smiles.
"I have no idea what they're talking about," Dom answers sarcastically.

"Toast," Tej says.
"Toast," Rome says. Dom smiles before beginning as we all circle around. Brian wraps his arms around my waist and I lean into him.

"Money will come and go. We know that. But the most important thing in life will always be the people in this room. Right here. Right now. Salute mi familia." Dom says.

"Salute," We all cheer.
