After Ethan left, Craig and I continued to struggle over the dead man switch. I couldn't afford for it to go off. Suddenly bullets begin to fly around us. Craig's attention is no longer on the trigger, and soon I find the dead man's switch in my hand. I fall to the floor, ducking as more bullets fly our way. In the heat of the moment, Craig takes off.
I can't let him get away. However I have no choice in this moment, at least until I can get the bomb out. I crouch along the hallway, ducking quickly into one of the nearby rooms. Without losing my grip on the dead man's switch, I reach into my back pocket grabbing my gun. I need a way to protect myself.
I peek out of the room, looking for any sign of anyone following me. However, much to my luck, no one seems to have noticed me. I shift further into the room, leaning my back along the wall. I set my gun on the ground, keeping it close by should I need it. I then reach into my other pocke
...Xavier POV...I've paced the hallway of the hospital so much, that I wouldn't be surprised if I feel through to the floor below."Xav! We just heard! What happened?"I turn around to see Jax and Elena running towards me, stopping me in my tracks."Both Lexi and Sienna have been shot." I say defeatedly."What? How?" Jax asks.I don't even know where to begin. What exactly happened? This entire month has been an absolute nightmare. Each time I think we're getting ahead, something like this happens. Proving to me again and again how fragile life is."Craig had snipers in the area..." I begin, only to cut myself off.To my relief, Jax doesn't attempt to interrupt me or ask questions. Rather he lets me get it out at my own pace."They.. they were so happy. I could see them jumping up in victory." I say with a sad voice.I try my best to prevent the tears from escaping as I continue to explain what
BEEP.BEEP.BEEP.The constant beeping sound of her heart monitor, is the only thing keeping me sane at the moment. The room is silent, other than the noise of the machines in her room that are helping to keep her alive.I lean my head towards her hand, placing my forehead against the back of her hand. I'm a complete mess. I don't know what I'll do if she doesn't make it out of this.Dr Lawson comes in ten minutes later, awakening me from my thoughts."There are some results that I would like to discuss with you." She says. I can sense the apprehension in her voice.I turn to look back at my Little Bear laying unconscious on the bed in front of me. I don't want to leave her, but I can tell that whatever Dr Lawson needs to tell me is important.Before I get a chance to voice my concerns, Elena and Jax walk into the room."We'll stay with her." Elena says, walking over to the other side of Lexi's bed to hold her hand
...Sienna POV...It's been close to two months since that horrible night. It was an absolute blood bath. We all thought that Ryker wouldn't stand a chance, considering his condition when we managed to find him. However, it seems as though we all have our parents fighting genes. Cause that's exactly what he is, a fighter. Even the doctors were amazed that he survived.Ryker was placed in a medically induced coma, once they were able to stable him. He had to undergo several blood transfusions. His body took a very bad beating. We still have no idea if he'll ever be the same again. His heart wasn't able to function properly due to the extreme blood loss. The doctors fear that he may have some life altering conditions, if he does manage to wake up.Chloe, or Dr Lawson had managed to stabilize me after I was shot. She was busy tending to Ryker at the time, but once Lexi and I took fire, she had one of Xavier's men look after Ryker, as she came for us. She
...Xavier POV...Shortly after Sienna had left, Ryker was discharged from the hospital. He had grown restless in the time that he had been in the hospital. With Dr Lawson's help, Ryker will be staying at my place for the next couple of months. He'll be monitored the entire time, to ensure nothing bad happens. But it also allows him a sense of freedom and normalcy. Ryker and I are very similar. We both need to feel as though we are accomplishing something. Not doing anything, just makes us more irritable. That alone is one of the many reasons as to why I have an at home clinic. Dr Lawson always said that I'm one of her worst patients. As I always go against her wishes.Matteo and Catherine helped with Ryker's transition to my house. In the meantime Catherine and Matteo are also staying at my house. They might as well, since no one else has been staying there. I've barely left Lexi's side since she came into the hospital. I spend everyday and night with her. Jax br
Nurses began to run out of the room in a panic. My men followed behind me as we entered Lexi's room. My eyes went wide as I saw one of the Doctors pinned to the ground, as Lexi held onto a needle, threatening to inject the doctor beneath her."What the hell is going on?" I shout.My men seem just as confused as me. It's as thought they have no idea what to do next. They know they can't shoot her, but they also know that if they were to injure her in any way, that they would pay with their lives. So instead, they stand placid, unsure as to how to move forward."We don't know what happened. We believe that she's trying to defend herself, but she doesn't seem to realize that we're just trying to help her." One of the nurses informs me.Instantly, I begin to understand. I've seen her do this once before. She's unconsciously defending herself. Her mind must be blending her nightmares with reality. Defending itself in the only way it knows how. By attacking. As
...Lexi POV...I was discharged from the hospital a few days later. Under supervision of Dr Lawson of course. Even though I had been discharged, Xavier didn't allow me to do anything myself. Rather he had become like my personal slave. If I needed to go to the bathroom, he would take me. If I wanted to g outside, he would carry me there. He cooked anything I wanted to eat. Which I can't complain, because he's an amazing chef.Even though I found the attention to be overwhelming at times, I didn't say anything. I still don't remember everything that happened, but I knew from the way he was acting, that he was afraid that he could lose me at any moment. While he had become good at hiding his true feelings, he could never fully hide them from me. Whatever happened, must've scared him shitless. From what I do know about what happened, I can only agree that his reaction is justified. I would be acting similarly, if not the same if our roles were reversed.
"Wait." I say, bringing the conversation to a halt.I look as all the eyes in the room immediately look in my direction."Sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt. But I just had a thought." I try to explain."What' on your mind?" Xavier coos to me, kissing me on the back of my head."Craig." I say, the one word that came to mind."What about him?" Sienna asks.I stiffen in my seat, as my anxiety begins to overwhelm me. I'm waiting for them to tell me that he managed to escape once more. That I'll continue to have to look over my shoulder in fear. Instinctively, I run my hand over my stomach, as my thought now goes to my unborn child. Will they have to live a life like me? Will their lives always be in peril? The thought alone makes my body shiver. I feel my blood run cold, just at the thought.As if sensing my nervousness, Xavier is quick to respond. Pulling me closer into his embrace as he does so."I know what you're thinking
True to her word, over the next few months, Sienna helped me gain control of the Dragons. As Jax had found out, the Serbs had no interest in their American counter parts. Rather it seems as though we did them a favour by eliminating Craig and his brothers. Shortly after I took control of the Dragons, Vlado, the leader of the Serbian Mafia reached out to us. He wanted to thank us for eliminating his troublesome family members, and offered us anything we want in return.We thought about it for awhile, when only when thing came to mind. We wanted peace. The best way to achieve that, was if we formed an alliance. This alliance would unite the Scorpions, Dragons, Serbs, along with the Knights. We would now be the most powerful organizations in the world. We had so many allies, that no one would ever dare to go against us.With Sienna and Xavier's help, I was able to transform the Dragons into an entirely new organization. The Dragons now closely resembled the Scorpions, how
