"I'm wanted in a lot of states," Jackie exclaimed as she finally sat back down. "I've stolen cars and food, clothes and diapers, I've falsified so many documents." "And worst of all John's still out there," she said. "He's never gonna let us be, he's never gonna stop looking for us." Stroking her back Emmett spoke softly to her. "None of that matters," he said to her. "I still love you." "Don't you get it?" She looked up at him, fear in her eyes. "If he finds me, he'll kill you." Emmett laughed. "Let him try." "You shouldn't be so quick to underestimate him," she warned. Grabbing her face with his large hand, Emmett faced her towards him, his thumb caressing her cheek. "You're not the only one with a secret."
