Undercover Love

Chapter 14

Mercedes sat in the wheel chair in the room of the hospital and Unique laid on her shoulder. Santana and Brittany walked over to her. Mercedes turned towards them.

"How's Sam doing?"

Santana moved closer to her. "First things first how are you feeling?"

Mercedes sighed. "I'm ok…still a little sore…so is he ok?"

"Still in surgery. How are you doing?"

Mercedes wiped a few falling tears. "I lost the baby…Howell kicked me three times and all the stress and falling…I lost my baby."

Santana's bent down and hugged Mercedes as tears fell down her face.

"Its ok sweetie…you can have more right?"

"Doctor said he didn't see why not?"

Brittany moved closer to her. "I just want to say that we wanted to tell you guys everything but we couldn't risk it."

Mercedes nodded. "I know and I understand why you couldn't I just hope Howell gets what he deserves."

Unique sighed. "Ok I am still trying to get all this in…Puck worked for Howell but was talking to the feds…you and Sam are detectives and he went undercover to find out why Mercy was important to Puck and ended up falling for her and getting her pregnant but had no idea."

"Yeah…pretty much?"

"And you love him?"

"Yeah I do."

"Wow so Howell didn't want you for dad he wanted you for Puck."

"Yep…Brittany what is going to happen with Howell?"

"You should be happy to know there will be no trail he made a deal to serve 4 life sentences without parole once he heard the tape he was more than willing to make a deal."

"Am I getting charged for shooting him?"

"No I explained it was self defense.

Santana sat next to Mercedes.

"I'm happy we found their killer and all but I just feel weird not knowing they were murdered all this time."

"I know what you mean."

Mercedes wrapped her arms around Unique and Santana.

"It's even weirder I lost my baby…but I have my two sisters and we sent that killer away for life…I'm as happy as I can be right now."

The doctor walked in the room and over to them. Mercedes looked up to him and sighed.

"Is he gonna be ok?"

"We removed the bullet from his chest and stopped the bleeding...he is very lucky it didn't hit any lungs or his liver or kidneys so I would say he has a full recovery ahead of him. You can go see him he's awake."

"Thank you."

They walked into the room and Sam smiled.

"Hey did we get him?"

Brittany smiled. "Yea we got him thanks to Mercedes."

"No thanks to all of us." Mercedes said as she rolled to his bed.

"Mercy are you ok? What happened?"

"I'm ok…How are you feeling?"

"Like I was shot."

She shook her head and smiled a little. "I just came in here to make sure you were ok."

Sam took her hand in his. "I owe you an apology and I know there was no reason for me to act the way I did."

"You don't owe me a thing. You saved my life remember. But I should get back to the room I am being release today."

"Won't you tell me why you were here?"

"I want to but I don't know how you will take it. There is something I have to tell you."

"I already know we are having a baby and I am ok with that?"

"No I mean yes but no."

"Cedes spit it out its mine right?"

"Sam I am in this wheel chair because I lost our baby."

"You what?"

"I lost our baby."

Sam stared at her and couldn't tell if Mercedes was crying cause he couldn't see past his own tears. "Its ok right I mean your ok?"

"I'm ok I wanted the baby I did and I wanted to tell you."

"Yeah and I know I didn't make it easy for you…and I am sorry you couldn't tell me."

"Its no big deal…really. I mean yeah I was pregnant and I lost the baby. And even though it was yours I didn't want to bother you. In my eyes nothing between us has changed. I just wanted to say thank you for helping us see the truth. And for saving my life. You get some rest ok."

"Mercedes wait. Please come back."

Mercedes wheeled out the room. Santana and Unique followed her. Brittany looked at Sam.

"So you really ok?"

"No. I am the stupidest man on earth. How can I keep letting her go?"

"Cause you're an idiot. But tomorrow is a new day. You just worry about getting better. Everything will work out. Trust me."


Mercedes and Unique were trying to catch up while Santana and Brittany returned from the hospital. Mercedes smiled as they walked in hand in hand. Santana say next to Mercedes.

"So I see you guys are catching up."

"Yeah we are trying…so what about you two?"

Santana smiled widely. "We are doing well. I have my sisters and my beautiful britts with me that is all I need."

Brittany beamed. "Oh your making me blush baby."

They all laughed and Mercedes looked down to her hands.

"So have you seen Sam?"

Brittany nodded. "Yeah we just left him actually."

"How's he doing?"

"He is healing great you should go see him."

"I did the other day I wanted to just say hi but he was sleep…I stood by his bed for a while praying over him…then Quinn came in and asked me to leave…so I did."

Brittany raised an eyebrow. "She was there?"

"Yeah."

"What did you do?"

"I left."

Santana sighed. "But you love him?"

"Yeah I do."

"And you just left."

"He made it clear to me that he didn't want me as anything in his life she was there to look after him and so I did what she asked and left."

Brittany shook her head. "Maybe he didn't want you to leave."

"Yeah how do you know?"

"Maybe because I told her."

Mercedes turned to see Sam staring at her.

"What are you doing here? You shouldn't be out of bed."

Sam moved closer to her with a smile. "You know nothing can keep me down for long."

"How are you feeling?"

"A lot better now."

"Sam this is my baby sister Unique…Unique this is Sam."

Unique shook Sam's hand. "Nice to meet you."

"You too."

She looked from Mercedes to Sam and smiled. "I will be inside I have to make a call and I know he's worried."

"He?"

"Oh yeah I forgot to tell you um I'm engaged."

"Engaged…to who?"

"Well to Ryder."

Mercedes smiled brightly. "Ryder Lynn? That tall skinny dude who lived next to your grandmother?"

"Well he may be tall but the boy has filled out."

Unique walked into the house.

"This ain't over."

Mercedes glanced at Sam.

"So I guess I should thank you for saving my life…that's two out of three when am I gonna get to save you?"

"You saved my life the first day I met you."

Brittany grabbed Mercedes hand. "Hey I think I want to go inside? Come with?"

"I would follow you to the moon."

Santana and Brittany walked into the house hand in hand. Santana smiled.

"Its nice to find someone you care about its even better when they admit to caring about you."

"Yeah kinda like us."

"What do you mean?"

"I mean I love you."

"Oh well I knew that…I love you too."

Brittany pulled Santana to her and kissed her. Mercedes and Sam are talking

"You need your rest you really should go lay down I'll go get Brittany so she can take you to your place."

"Wait...don't go I have something I want to say to you."

Mercedes shook her head. "Thanks but I already know what you want to say."

"And what is that?"

"That you don't know what I was doing at the hospital and that you were serious when you said that you didn't want to be with me that Quinn has been there for you and you want to be with her so I should get over it right."

"That's not even close to what I wanted to say."

"Ok then what."

"I wanted to say that in all my life I have never known a feeling like this...you bring out a part of me that I never knew I had. This is the honest truth about me my name is Samuel Dwight Evans. I am a detective I never went to college and I have one sister. I never had a real relationship where I was in real love all those other times were just puppy love compared to this…even when I was with Quinn it was only because I didn't want to be alone and that wasn't fair to any of us."

"Were together?"

"Yeah I broke up with her."

"But she was at the hospital and she asked me to leave and."

"Mercedes I didn't love her and even if I don't end up with you I couldn't be with her...look I have money I mean a lot of money and since you know where your dad hid the safe I am sure you do too...I have my life together the only thing I am missing is you...I want you I love you I need you in my life you complete me...I know I haven't been honest with you but I do love you and I do want to be your husband...I know you love me too so I am just gonna say it Mercedes please marry me."

Mercedes stepped back from Sam. "What?"

"Marry me be my wife I don't want to live my life without you."

"You don't know what you are saying."

"Yes I do I want you as my wife."

"So what you want to just start over like nothing happened…like you didn't break my heart?"

"I wanna start over with you as my wife…be that wonderful woman for me the one your mother was for your father...I want to have children with you and grow old with you just say yes…I spent the whole first half of my life wondering what I was missing and I realized it was you…please don't make me spend the rest of my life regretting this very moment…I need you and you need me."

Mercedes folded her arms. "Let's make a few things clear there will be no more secrets?"

"None I will tell you everything."

"And you won't hurt me."

"Never."

"Sam most of our relationship was a lie."

"No my name was a lie and my job was but I was being me with you I was being myself when I fell in love with you."

"And how do I know that…how."

"Because I am telling you. Trust me…trust your feelings for me."

"Sam I don't know I want to but."

"No buts ok none just go with it live in this moment."

"Live in the moment Sam I did I came to you and I wanted you and I wanted to tell you about the baby and you told me you didn't want me you didn't care."

"I know what I said and I am sorry…and I am sorry about the baby. But know this I love you…look at me and see that please…marry me."

"Is that a yes?"

"Yes I will marry you."
