Angel hurried back to the house. She needed to undue what she had done. Was Meyers so stupid he thought she’d sit idly by while he destroyed Nick and gave his son away. There was no way she could watch him suffer more; after all she’d done to him he stood up for her and took a beating for it. She wanted some revenge, to hurt Nick but she never wanted things to go this far.
“Kitty thanks for watching Nicky but could you do me a favor and take him with you for an over night stay?”
“Sure Becca he’s the sweetest kid you sure are lucky. If he looks anything like his daddy I can’t wait to meet him. You‘re going to have your hands full with this little heart breaker.”
“Yeah he looks just like him. My Momma’s old expression was he couldn’t have spit straighter.”
“God Becca I forgot how funny you were. I’m glad we found each other again. Who would have thought so far from home to boot.”
“I know Kitty. It’s a small world..”
“Little Sara just loves him. We’re thinking about having another one so this is great practice for us. We need to get Sara used to the idea of sharing.”
“I appreciate this so much Kitty I’ll go pack a bag real quick.”
“You know we can keep him longer if you need it Being I’m laid off now I have plenty of time for this little cutey
“This means more to me than you’ll ever know. Ill pack a bag for a couple days just in case.” Angel stuffed the bag with all she could including his favorite toys. She hugged the little bear before she closed the bag. This game was over Nick needed his son. After Kitty left Angel began to pack up her bags so she would be ready to leave Meyers and his twisted plans behind before any more damage could be done to Nick and his family. Some how she had true make this right and maybe one day he‘d be able to forgive her. She grabbed it all and a stash of money she knew where it was hidden. She was going to find her daughter without the help of any of them.

Nick opened his eyes, at least the pounding he was hearing wasn‘t in his head. He tried to get off the couch but regretted the decision.
“Nick, lay back down,” Jack yelled on his way to the door.
“Yeah,” he groaned and dropped back down onto the couch.
Jack looked through the peep hole. “Great.” The fed from the hospital was outside the door and Nick was in no shape to answer questions.
“You don’t look so good. Is there anything you want to tell us?”
“Never been better except for the fact you still haven‘t found my son.”
“Well Sheriff our job would be a hell of a lot easier if you cooperated and stopped jerking us around. I won’t play games anymore. You’ve lost my men twice and now you look like something the cat drug in. Does your son mean so little to you?”
Nick stood up quickly and squared off with the fed. “You don’t know a damn thing about me or my family.” Jack stepped to his side not knowing if Nick was going to keel over or knock the fed on his ass.
“You’re wrong Sheriff. You have a very large and impressive file. I's amazing what you can find out when you know what buttons to push. Doing this on your own will get you all killed.”
“I’ve been looking into to you too. 3 of your 4 kidnappings ended with the victims dead and the perps not apprehended. The last one was a hoax and you busted them. Those don’t sound like very good odds to me, If something happens to my son it’ll be because of my screw up not yours. Do you understand me?”
“Yeah unfortunately I do. You’re the one who has to live with that decision. But were working the case with or without your cooperation. Do you understand me?”
“Yeah I do. Just make sure you stay the hell out of my way.”
Agent shook his head and headed for the door. He turned to Jack and said. “Maybe you can talk some sense into him.”
“I haven’t been able to yet.” Jack knew Nick needed to do this himself. He wasn’t capable of sitting by and relying on the ability of others, not when his son‘s life was at stake.
