A single shot echoed through the trees. Renaldo’s head snapped back with a sharp jerk and he collapsed beside her. Lydia looked into his dead eyes and screamed the loudest yet.

Before she knew what was happening she was surrounded by French and American men, securing the area and checking for surviving enemies.

“It’s a shame we couldn’t take them alive.” Lydia heard the foreign words but her brain was slow in translation. She felt dizzy and sick. Renaldo’s body was removed from her side and a medic began to staunch the bleeding in her wounds.

Lydia drifted in and out of consciousness.

Then, there was nothing but blackness.

 

When she awoke in the hospital she had no idea how long she had been there. Tucker slept in the chair at her side, his head lolling with each gentle snore. As soon as she shifted he snapped to attention and began running his hands over her body, as if checking to make sure she was all there.

“I’m fine.” The weakness in her voice apparent.

“I was afraid to touch you until you were awake.” He admitted, bringing the straw from a glass of water to her lips. “I’m so sorry, Lydia.”

“I’m fine.” She repeated with more force. “Is it over?”

He nodded. “Yes. It’s all over. With his forces split the Monacan government seized control of his center of operations. Everyone else came to the cabin that night. He really thought that you were a terrible threat.” He smoothed a hand over her hair. She could feel that it was still crusted with blood. “I’m so sorry.”

“It’s over. That’s all that matters.” Lydia was surprised to find that she meant it. She was no longer afraid, only weary. “What happens now?” She was afraid that he would say that he was leaving for another mission. That somehow this would mean that it was over for them as well. Lydia waited with bated breath.

“Now, you recover.” He sat on the edge of the bed. “I thought, maybe, I’d stick around for that.”

“Maybe?” she teased.

“OK. Definitely.” Tucker smiled.

“Until I recover?” She knew that she was pressing the issue but she wanted to know how much time she had with him.

“Or longer.” He kissed her with slow, tempered passion. “I’d like to learn more about these other places you plan on traveling to. I’m thinking that you might need a bodyguard.”

Lydia laughed. “You know, before I would have said that you were crazy, but I’m starting to think that you are right.”

“Let’s just focus on getting you healthy first.” Tucker leaned forward to kiss her with a smile on his lips. The instinctive reaction of her body warned Lydia that she had better focus on healing fast.
