Author's note: YES! The long awaited chapter after the cliffie has been uploaded! Sorry about the wait, I just had the greatest short story idea in my head, and I had to get it out! If you want to check it out, it is called Addiction! 

Anyway, that's the main reason I haven't uploaded. The other is that I've been super busy, so I had this already written chapter just lying around, waiting to be uploaded. Sorry about the wait!!

This chapter is dedicated to my new reader love4everyday!! Yay, does happy dance. Thank you so much for all the support! I'm so happy to say that I have been on the Watty Awards 2012 list for more than a week now! 

Well, here it is! I'll stop babbling now...

On with the story.



Lindsey’s Point of View

Bulls-eye! Got him straight through the heart. I held my gun steadily in my arm, and shot again, aiming for the straw stuffed dummy’s forehead this time. The shiny revolver was a brilliant piece of work, and was great for practice out in the open expanse of my backyard.

After all, an FBI agent needs to practice range shooting as well. All those teaching credentials, gone to waste. Oh well, being an agent gave me great pleasure, because I was helping people all the same.

I sank one last bullet into the dummy, before heading into the house, only to find a pale Jeff hiding behind the couch.

“Really Jeff? You think the couch would protect you from all dangers?”

I arched a brow at him, before heading over. He was shaking, and was holding the telephone in his hand.

“Lindsey,” he whispered. “My dad wants me dead.”


I’ve taken Jeff into custody in Shanghai, China, the most populated city in the world. He’s being targeted by one of the most powerful and influential businessmen in the United States, and I can’t let him see me.

We’ve been hidden away into a simple apartment, definitely not beautiful by any standards, but it suffices. The FBI has allowed me to come and keep him safe, and we’re under guard all the time.

A lot of times, we are locked down, and anyone who comes to visit is strip searched, fingerprinted, and tested.

Everyone in our complex is aware of what’s happening, and they are wonderful Chinese citizens who keep out secret safe. I’m so scared, on the outside, I may seem like I hate Jeff, but how can you hate the man you have loved since you met him?

He was my hero. The day of the accident, he had saved me, sacrificed himself so I could leave the scene unscathed. Now it was my turn, my turn to save him.

“Lindsey, how are you going to keep me safe?”

“I’m an FBI agent, don’t ask any more questions. We’re going to change your appearance,” I silenced him, before taking out a bottle of deep brown dye. “How fond are you of your hair color?”

“Honestly, as long as it can trick my dad, I don’t care,” he shrugged.

“Good, because from today on, you’re going to be a green-eyed brunette.”

“Ok then, let operation brunette begin,” he replied.
