Shannon angled her head to the left. Her eyebrow was arched. “Did you just threaten me?” Her voice raised with each word.
He realized just a bit too late that he fucked up. “Shannon, no I didn’t threaten you. I just want my dad to be there for when we get married. You don’t have any family, do you? Wouldn’t you want him to walk you down the aisle?” He was hoping that would make her think logically about it.
“Oh, you’re right. I want to be as close to my in laws to the point where they think of me as the daughter they never had.” She raised the gun to her lips while smiling. “But you did threaten me so you need to be punished.” She raised her hand in the air that wielded the gun and struck him across the side of his face.
Kenji crumpled to the ground. She hit him hard enough to be knocked unconscious. Sandra screamed. “Kenji? Kenji? Wake up honey please?”
“Oh, shut up mom. He’s fine you shouldn’t worry so much.” She took the bandana that she was holdin
Detective Hanson sighed. This wasn’t an ideal hostage situation but nothing is ideal when you have mentally disturbed people involved. He scratched his head with free hand. “Ok, so you’ll let his parents and Emma Jean go?” Emma jean answered for herself. “No, Kenji needs to reject me in front of her. I have to stay. Just worry about his parents and not about me.” “Yes, she understands the situation so don’t get in our way. Once he tells me he loves me and not her then we can all end this as peacefully as we can. Don’t try anything funny.” Detective Hanson gulped knowing what the end result would be. “We won’t. I’m sending someone in now.” He motioned for one of his men to go forward unarmed to get the couple. The man knocked on the door and opened it. He walked into seeing Emma Jean being held with a gun to her head. Her hands were balled into a fist. He thought he seen something but shook his head. Shannon motioned to the kitchen. “Hurry and
Emma jean had hoped that would keep her occupied long enough to get out of the house safely so the police could handle her but as soon as she reached the door to turn it a shot rang close to her ear. She looked to see a bullet hole in the corner of the door’s hinges. She turned around to see Shannon barely standing. She sent a silent prayer up to her daddy for making sure she had a learned some defensive moves. “That was the last bullet in the chamber you know.”Shannon held the gun up weakly while still holding onto her stomach. “You think I didn’t load the bullets back in the chamber? You would be stupid if you thought otherwise.”Emma jean looked from the door handle to Shannon. Her eyes were slightly narrowed as she raised her eyebrows. “You wouldn’t have had enough time to load them.”“You want to test that theory?” She stood up straighter an pointed the gun towards her.“So you&
Six months had past since that incident with Shannon. Emma Jean had been sitting in her office working on plans for the parks new attraction while also watching a rough cut of a new movie the company had started to work on. A knock came from her door causing her to look up. She smiled when he entered the office. “What are you doing here?” Kenji was dressed up in a suit and carrying a mixed bouquet. Roses, carnations, lilies, daisies, and baby’s breath were wrapped in an elegant purple paper. “I came to see the most beautiful woman in the world.” She smiled at him and looked down at her swollen belly. “You only say that because I’m pregnant and hormonal. You’re trying to appease me first thing.” He handed her the flowers then stole a kiss from her lips. “Not at all. I really believe you are the most beautiful woman in the world. And you are all mines.” She took the flowers and placed them on her desk. She smiled while looking at him. She couldn
Emma Jean looked in the rearview mirror to see his head disappeared. She got concerned and was about to get out of the car when he stood back up. She placed her hand to her chest and breathed. When he got in the car, she turned to him. “You nearly gave me a heart attack?”He looked puzzled for a moment then realized what she was referring to. “I didn’t disappear or felt ill. Just needed to tie my shoes is all. Is this your way of saying you love me more than air?”She turned away from him, folding her arms over her chest. “I didn’t say that.”“You’re so cute when you pout.”“You'll be cute with a swollen lip?”Kenji started the car. And sounded overly cheerful. “Does that mean your going to kiss me until they are swollen from your love?”Emma Jean couldn’t say anything back after that. She just decided to be quiet and enjoy the ride. Kenji knew what she really meant but nothing could bring him down. He had a plan to give her the romantic proposal she woul
Emma Jean stood there with her hands covering her mouth. Tears we’re streaming down her eyes. She was in shock, words failed her at that moment. She could only nod her head yes. “You will?” She finally found her voice. “Yes! Don’t be ridiculous.” Kenji picked her up, spinning her around. “You have no idea how happy that makes me.” He peppered her face in kisses. “Come with me.” He put her down on the porch. Rummaging through his pants pocket he pulled out the keys to the house. He headed straight to unlock the door. When he looked at her, she was confused. A tiny smile formed on his lips. “What’s this?” “Just follow me. I promise it’ll be worth your while.” He took her hand and lead her up the stairs. The sound of their footsteps echoed in the unfurnished house. They reached the top of the steps. Kenji took her to the master bedroom. There he opened the door and stood just at the entrance. Inside, were Sandra and Rowan holding a dress
