Gavin caught her off guard. Honestly, she was going to give him space. Like a child who’s having one of their moments. The girl leans against the doorframe. He’s full of emotions. If he doesn’t relax soon the vein on his neck is going to burst. Now the problem is she doesn’t know if she should laugh or cry. Luna obviously wanted a front row seat to all of this because she went to sit across from Gavin. Is the cat staring him down? Good girl!
Serena follows the car. Sat at the far end of the couch away from Gavin to give him his space. [#Af18ae Wow. First of all. A few hours. Since we came up with this stupid plan.] the girl looks out the window, [#Af18ae Your jealousy is going to be the death of you. Your pulse is too high. The vein on your neck is probably waking up Dracula. That’s if this little one doesn’t pop it herself because she looks like she still hates you.] Gavin is insane. Accusing her of playing house just for leads. Since rekindling their relationship she’s been slow. Leads been slow. This missions isn’t just a mission. She actually cares about him. Even if he believes it or not.
[#Af18ae Owen doesn’t mean anything to me. Never will. We had many run ins together... it’s such a long story. Anyways, no side mission. You were my parents target. My first mission but as you already know I caught feelings. Something about you being my first everything. Couldn’t shake those feeling. Can’t. I want you safe. Breathing. Why? Because I still love you stupid. But maybe you’re right. We should keep this professional. I’ll take luna and she’ll be my plus one to somewhere tropical when this is all over.] their fake marriage was fun. Seems like they’re getting a fake divorce. Serena got up to go back to the cockpit. Her left thumb twirls the real but fake wedding band for a while. Eventually she took it off. Placing it on the other hand. It hurts knowing what he really thinks. Owen is nothing. Wait till he meets another scum bag. The second this loser whiffs her location. She’ll receive gifts after gifts. He’ll visit as much as he can. He’s like a crazy stalker.
[#Af18ae Oh for the record my parents are picking us up. In case you want something else to think about other then Owen. You know. The freaking Clyde to my Bonnie who’s going to meet me in paradise to make criminal but sexy babies and rob the rich. Maybe become the next deadly but yet sexy cartel. Hell we can do business. Your father did or didn’t. We’ll all be stinking rich...] okay. She may have went overboard. His jealousy worse than a girls. She would say maybe this is how she reacts but she’s far worse. Physically.
Perfect. Trapped thirty-something thousand feet in the air with no distractions to keep from talking to her. The mood was completely shifted, and a new tension hung in the air. Linus must have sensed something was off, because he kept trying to crawl in Gavin's lap to pepper his face with sloppy kisses.
Mercifully, she stepped away for a phone call. He took the moment of privacy to close his eyes and lean his head back. He'd missed the initial greeting on the phone, but caught the rapid dialogue. Gavin wasn't a Spanish speaker, so he had no way of knowing what was being said. He could only hope that it wasn't anything particularly bad.
[i Probably talking to Owen,] his brain betrayed him. [i "They're probably discussing how they're going to hook up once you're gone."]
[b "Shut up,"] he grumbled to himself.
A peak from the corner of his eye caught the end of the phone call as she made her way back to the cabin. He lasted all of two minutes in silence before sitting straight up and locking eyes with her. [b "How long has it been since you decided this wasn't something you wanted after all?"] he blurted out. [b "Was all of this just bullshit? Appeasing me until you could get a lead?"]
With only a handful of hours of sleep and a physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted body, Gavin's rational side was gone. He couldn't wrap his brain around how they'd gone from flirting and teasing and living as a couple, for all intents and purposes, if she was so easily capable of handing him off at the end of everything like he was nothing. His mind kept flashing to Owen, and he couldn't help but conjure an image that she and the rogue had been plotting together all along. [b "Was this your plan along? Let me believe everything was fine, to alleviate your guilt at putting a target on my head last time, only to have a side-mission with dear old Owen to run off into the sunset together like some fucked up Bonnie and Clyde?"]
His adrenaline was pumping again, and every shred of logic in his brain was screaming at him to stop, but he was way past remaining calm. His hands fidgeted on his lap; a nervous tick he'd had since he was a kid. She was probably going to hit him, or at the very least snap some sense into him, but he didn't care. He couldn't even make sense of what was going on since the evacuation.
Serena’s shirt was almost off until she heard him. [#Af18ae Oh. Okay. Another time I guess.] Gavin’s mood and tone shifted real fast. He didn’t even want to touch her as he passed by. Serena simply nods.
Setting Luna free, both girls ignored Gavin. For different reasons of course. They both went to the front of the plane to monitor everything. What she told him wasn’t a lie. Anything can happen. He didn’t move on. Someone like him should’ve been married by now but he isn’t. Here they are playing house and talking about everything like if everything would be okay. When in reality they don’t know.
Right now, everything will be okay. They’re in the sky. No one but Owen knows they’re up there. He shouldn’t handled the police as well. [#Af18ae We’re going to be up here a while so get comfortable.] Serena slowly are the bag of nuts. Luna resting on her lap.
Serena got up use the planes phone. She dials a number she hasn’t used in a while. Her fathers. It went straight to voicemail. [#Af18ae It’s me. Call me when you get the chance. Tell the lady if the house I miss her...] she takes the phone with her. Her dad will call back. Hopefully. Ten minutes later the phone rang. [#Af18ae Hey dad... I’m fine....] from there she began to talk in Spanish. Fast.
It was nothing bad about Gavin. Not with her dad at least. Her parents agreed to help. Sinply because they were threatened not to help. They don’t do well with threats. Her mom wasn’t sure what to feel about them rekindling. But from the sound of it he’s realizing that they aren’t a perfect match. Her parents will be picking them up.
Gavin couldn't help but frown at her words. She seemed extremely confident in the end of their relationship once this was all over. He knew she was a great actress, but it didn't even appear that she was fazed at all by the inevitable breakup. [b "Are you serious?"] his brow furrowed.
Going ignored, his eyes followed her movement back to the cabin of the plane. Over the occasional beep from the flight equipment, he could hear Owen's voice coming through the laptop speakers. Gavin's stomach plummeted at the other man's flirtatious tone. [i A date?] What made it worse was the fact that Serena didn't turn him down.
He couldn't quite meet her eye when she called to him mischievously. His mood has soured. [b "Not really in the mood anymore. You're right,"] he answered with a monotone. [b "It's best to keep this professional. We'll get this done and you can go back to whatever things were like before me. I'll have a company to run."]
In the back of his head, he knew he was being a jealous asshole. But, she had a history with Owen - what that history entailed he'd rather not know. And clearly, the man was not above flirting with her. He was capable of handling himself in this life of felonies. Much better matched for her.
He'd spent his entire life feeling insecure in comparison to his perfect older brother. How the hell was he going to compare to with a man who was seemingly perfect for her?
[b "Excuse me,"] he brushed past her to get to Linus.
[b "Things will go back to normal soon, bud."] He wasn't entirely sure he was assuring the dog or himself. [b "I promise."]
A mischievous laugh erupts from her. He wants to know about her family. Ha! Serena looks at him. It was hard not not to laugh. She almost cried with how much she’s laughing. [#Af18ae You’re better off not putting on a ring on this finger. Even I don’t get a long with my dad. He buttheads. However, apparently we’re alike. So it makes sense. My mom on the other hand is... damn... I don’t know who’s crazier. Maybe me?] she said chuckling.
Serena pulls up before they got close to the cars. The back tire hit a car. [#Af18ae Oops.] she says still smiling. When they got high enoguht she puts them on autopilot. [#Af18ae Hey... I know we talked a lot about marriage and kids. The while nine yards for when we’re done with this, but they’re all fantasies... whatever happens you can move on. Just don’t put down luna or else I’ll haunt you.] she says grttingjo to kiss his forehead. She heads to the back to get in her laptop to find a private airport hanger.
Owen decided to video chat with Serena. He didn’t waste no time. “Are you stupid or crazy?”
[#Af18ae Both. Don’t worry I’ll pay you. It was an emergency v m]
“Everything is an emergency with you. Did he die?]
“Nope. Gavin is still alive. His brother is missing and we may have a lead. I promise I’ll pay you back and owe you one.]
“A date. Maybe we can finish what couldn’t happen in Tampa.” Serena clears her throat.
[#Af18ae Well talk when this is over. Got to go.] she says waving bye before ending the call. A much as she’ll regrey it and it’ll hurt Gavin she may have to sleep with Owen. It’ll be better than doing a gig for him. She found a hangar and calls the place making a deal. Money up front. More of he keeps the plane there until she gets it or Owen since he will be searchbfor it. [#Af18ae How do you feel about heading home?] she asks home?] she asks taking off her shoes. She raids the kitchen for some snacks. [#Af18ae Also I keep my promises. Ready for a whole new experience?] she asks him wiggling her eyebrows.
Gavin looked down at the claw marks angrily decorating his skin. [b "I always thought she was a sweet cat. Now her true side comes out. She is most definitely evil,"] he glared back at the cat carrier secured in the backseat.
Luna hissed in retaliation. [b "Yeah, you!"] he argued back. [b "Little miss satan is what you are."]
He continued bickering with the cat while waiting in the car for her at her parents' house. He had yet to officially meet them, and didn't feel comfortable scouring their house to steal. If they didn't already hate him, they definitely would if he was caught.
Everything was running on autopilot for him. He did as commanded, whenever Serena gave him an order. One by one, he loaded the bags and the animals into the plane. For Luna and Linus, all he could really do was put seatbelts on them in an attempt to keep them safely in place. Linus panted like nothing was wrong, smiling up at him with his dopey face. Luna was still glowering from her crate.
[b "I feel like there are many questions I need to ask in regards to your family history,"] Gavin couldn't help but grip the arms of his seat nervously as he spotted security at the end of the runway attempting to stop them. [b "Just so I know what I'm marrying into. Because I definitely will be putting a real ring on that finger once this is all over."]
Despite the trucks and guns aimed at them, she didn't slow the plane down once. A nervous flyer already, Gavin hoped his stomach didn't heave with the takeoff. They just had to get in the air, and they'd be on their way. Safe, for the time being.
Serena isn’t going to burst his happy bubble. What he doesn’t know won’t hurt. Plane sex is nothing special. He’ll eventually figure it out. She packs everything she could. [#Af18ae My car. Go. I’ll be there in a second.] she says waiting for him to leave to set the timer.
When it was set she ran out. They have two minutes. Can’t give Gavin or the pets a heart attack. She dumps everything in the trunk and gets in the driver seat. Not bothering with the seat belt she pulls out. [#Af18ae Oh god... did she do that too you?] she asks looking at Gavin’s new marks. As it luna could understand them she meowed angrily. It made her laugh. Pulling out the the gun that was tucked behind her back, she hands it to Gavin. Just to be safe.
Their first stop was to her parents to grab the painting and a few extra things. [#Af18ae What sucks is that i can’t even fix the problem in my bakery... I may just sell it to him so I don’t go under...] she says driving. Paranoid.
It took a long time to get to the private hanger. The guards there sucks. It was easy to sneak in side. Owen’s plane was there. It just needed gas. She got it going as Gavin brought things in. Slowly. It’s like moving to a new apartment. It sucks. When the plan was full she walks to a corner and began to talk to the secret camera. She apologized for stealing the plane but she’ll owe him big time before taking it down. [#Af18ae I learned to fly when my family and I got taken. Someone killed the pilot and my dad was bleeding to death and mother was still drugged. The pressure... of course I crash landed but I’m so much better now promise.] she said going down the runway for take off. Security approaching from a distance. [#Af18ae I’m going to miss that place. It was beautiful. Secluded.]
[b "A hipster, huh?"] he took advantage of her kindness and swiped a pancake from the top of the pile. [b "I've never dated one of them before."]
He was grateful for the playful bickering they had settled back into. Things were running hot and cold for a while, and it was nice to have some form of normalcy back. They'd constantly had playful arguments during their previous relationship. It almost made everything feel peaceful again.
[b "If you're promising me a Mile High Club membership, don't think I won't hold you to that,"] he aimed a warning finger at her with a mischievous smirk. [b "Pretty sure an airplane is the one place we haven't ever tried to do it before."]
With the urgency to get going, and with one camera down, he stuffed the rest of the pancake in his mouth and headed for the bedroom. Nothing was folded neatly in his rush; just tossed and stuffed haphazardly in duffle bags. [b "Linus, come here,"] he called the dog to secure him on a leash.
Gavin jumped at the sound of her shooting the computer, and then a second time as Luna pounced on him for comfort from the noise. [b "You're definitely not going to like me in a minute,"] he muttered to the cat, holding her against his chest with one arm as the other grabbed the cat carrier from the bedroom closet.
Clearly she remembered what happened the last time she was in the crate, because Luna immediately began struggling and scratching at his arms. [b "Just one more plane right, I promise,"] Gavin winced as her claws pulled across his skin. [b "Then you can get all the treats and scratch posts your heart desires."]
If she could talk, he was fairly sure she was cussing him out. With a duffle bag over each shoulder, Linus' leash in his right hand and the cat carrier in his left, he went to the living room to meet with her. [b "Ready when you are, captain."]
Serena laughs. [#Af18ae You canbhbe one. Your earned it after the ride wake up call.] with the way Gavin was looking at the fruits he was like a kid staring at vegetables on his dinner plate. Hilarious.
[#Af18ae I’m not but there’s nothing we can do. I’ll see if Owen can let us use his plane or I can sweet talk the wife he has out here. Say I’m his sister. I’ll contact my normal black market guy for a new identity. I’m thinking about being a hipster. Put on a grey wig. Maybe blue contact lense. Oh some temporary tattoos. Kind of exciting. But we should get going. We can just do it on the plane. You’ll love it since it’s Owen’s and you seem to hate him and all.] now that she wiggles her eyebrows too. Sounds like a good plan. She can maybe just take it. Of course she’ll hbe to owe him big time. Perhaps Ganon would enjoy learning how to fly a plane. They’ll be okay if it’s on autopilot for a little while. Ripping a piece of the pancake to pop it in her mouth she sat up having a seeking feeling. Grabbing a pancake she goes to the computer to check the monitors. One of the cameras is out. Great. [#Af18ae A big chance you may use you what you learned today in someone else. Time to grab what we can and go. A camera is down.] she says rewinding it to see what happened. She doesn’t see anything but it’s been out for about an hour. Serena runs to the bedroom to gear up and pack. [#Af18ae I’m going to check on the cars. Stay here. Armed. Packing.] she says putting on clothes.
Serena decided to exit using a window. A gun in her hands as she walks crouching down getting ready for anything. Their cars are fine. Nothing was placed on the car. Tires are fine. Engines doesn’t seem to be tampered with. She started her car first. All good. His was fine too. She runs inside. [#Af18ae So far so good.] she says grabbing all the valuables, laptop, deleting everything off the the computers. She shoots the hardrive a few times just to be safe. Carefully and slowly she sets up a timer bomb on the computer desk. They can repair the house another time. She has the documents on her bag.
Gavin snorted a laugh. [b "Hey, at least you get fancy chocolate chip pancakes. I'm going to make do with that shiny apple over there,"] he glanced at the damn fruit that was going to be his tiny snack.
If she was leaving it in his hands, the sooner they left the better. He was eager to get a jump on things, and work past this hiccup in their lives. A goddamn peaceful vacation was what they deserved after all of this. [b "One last round of special training before we go tomorrow,"] he winked at her like an idiot.
With dramatic flair and a bow, he set the plate of pancakes in front of her. [b "For your highness,"] he faked a British accent. [b "And for her court jester,"] he grabbed the apple from the counter.
He fell into the chair beside her, reaching down to pull her feet onto his lap so he could use his free hand to give her a thank you massage. [b "I'll fly back home with the pets, and leave them with my cousin at my house again. That way they'll be safe while we investigate. Who knows what we're going to find when we get there. This could take weeks of constantly being on the move. Are you still okay with the plan?"]
Serena was trying to control her breathing. This is too much. The house need to find him a trainer. It bothers her that she’s beating him up. Her father would love it thought. Hell he’ll want to teach Gavin the ways of their life. Of course with a very [i generous donation]. [#Af18ae I didn’t win. I tapped out.] she rolled to on to her belly. Her arms folded, head rests on them.
[#Af18ae Sorry that my training andleanring how to cook is fancier. The perks of pretending to be high class... but you are getting better. Let’s jusy see if your diet changes. You can go bag to all the sweets you want once when you get used to working out and have a routine.] it took her a while to get up. The Peet’s followed her to the kitchen. She is going to feed them. [#Af18ae Oh. Chocolate chip pancakes. Fancy.] she says jokingly before kissing his cheek. [#Af18ae We should be leaving soon. Unless you want another day if training. The decision is up too you. Just know if you do decirte wait maybe we can have that other practice before and after we leave. Maybe even a preview of what’s to come. Some time after we eat or course.] she says sitting down to serve the fur babies their food. Maybe going back to sleep would also be something they should do. At least she wants to sleep. He can do whatever he wants.
Wrestling was the only advantage he had. Gavin had once upon a time been on his private school's wrestling team in high school, so grappling wasn't unfamiliar. However, that was at least ten years ago and he'd long-since lost the agility he had as a scrawny teenager. She was still stronger than he was in terms of forcing an opponent away, and he barely had time to register the turn of events before his face was pressed into the floor.
[b "I surrender, grandmaster!"] he used his free hand to tap the floor. [b "You are the champion."]
He thanked every god there was when she finally released him to wallow in his loss. He tried to stretch his neck back and forth to loosen up the muscle cramp. [b "Unfortunately, your prize of iHop will have to wait. I don't think there's one anywhere around here. And I am not driving around in the dark trying to find one,"] he aimed a warning finger at her.
He rolled onto his knees and then feet. [b "I'll make you pancakes. That's at least one thing I'm better at than you."]
Simple foods were his forte. If it didn't require much thought, he could manage whipping it together like an expert. And thank god they'd remembered chocolate chips during the last grocery shop. Gavin added a gratuitous amount to the batter as he stirred everything. [b "At least tell me I'm making some kind of progress,"] he called to her. [b "I might die of shame if I haven't at least improved slightly."]
Is he trying to get you to your belly? He’s smart to do something he’s familiar with. Wrestling isn’t something she practiced. He does have a upper hand which sucks. Although she may be able to beat him. Hopefully. [#Af18ae God I hate wrestling...] she says trying to think of how now to get pinned down. [#Af18ae Sorry, no. You learn not to get distracted. Stripping down does work if your opponent finds you atttactive. But I’m in training mode so it won’t work.]
Right now all she knows it that he can’t get on top. That’s a wrestling thing right? She has to be quick enough to scramble free. She shuffle her legs to gain more support. Taking a deep breath she uses her core strength as best as her sore body can and places her hands on his head and arm, pulls them down onto their face. She tried to do it quickly and forcefully. [#Af18ae God... I think if I continue I’ll pop my head stitches or something.] Serena was getting tired. Plus she feels bad for waking him in the rudest way. She still thinks he’s going to hate her when all of this ends, one way or another. [#Af18ae I can so go for some iHop right about now.] she says laying on the floor.
Gavin was, at heart, a weak man. So, the sight of his lover standing before him with no pants whatsoever was enough to render him stupid long enough enough for her to land a solid smack across his face. [b "I'd like to say this is cheating, but I have a feeling that won't help my case,"] he argued, remembering to plant his feet for a sturdy defensive position.
It was almost cruel, really. If she didn't have such goddamn amazing legs, maybe he'd be able to focus. Bitching would get him nowhere, however. So, he did his absolute best to not let her near-nakedness get too much into his head. Except, you know, when a kick came close enough that he could admire the view before it landed.
Gavin tried to lock a half-Nelson hold on her, but she was out of the hold before he even managed to get a good enough grip. All he had to do was pin her for ten seconds. That was it. Ten measly seconds, and the fight was over. Unfortunately, she was a goddamn expert at sparring matches.
[b "Is pants-less fighting a thing now? Can we make that our Friday night date night routine? As much as it hurts getting kicked in the stomach, this is hot,"] he panted, temporarily getting his arms around her from behind.
The suplex wasn't exactly great quality, but he managed to get the upper hand if even for a moment. [b "If men could use sex appeal to win fights, would I be winning?"] he wrestled to get her arms pinned to the floor, knees braced on either side of her hips.
Look at him trying to negotiate. He should be good at it since she’s a business man. [#Af18ae If you can take me down and keep me down for ten second we can do whatever you want [i boo].] This time around she won’t tell him what he did wrong. She’ll simply strike. What she’ll do is turn down the crazy just a notch. He won’t be able to handle her full force.
Grinning she blocks his punch, twists his arm, closes the space between them to kiss him before backing away. Tying up her hair she quickly drops down to the floor and swipes his legs from under him. [#Af18ae You’ll probably deal with kickers.] she says giving him an excuse as to why she did what she did. To motivate him the girl took off her pants. [#Af18ae Think this should help. I never did get anything to motivate me so this should help you.] she says fixing her underwear before smacking him. [#Af18ae I’ll refrain from punching. A snack would hurt but not for long like my punches.] she says jumping like she’s about to start a UFC fight.
