Chapter 5: Grace Breaks into the office
I set my phone on vibrate and set the alarm for 4:00 AM. Just incase I fell asleep. Not that I would. I don't sleep anymore. It was time. I snuck down the stairs and into Jerry's office. I took the key out of his desk unlocked the door and took the phone out. I plugged it in and dialed Snakes phone number.
"Hello, this is Snake how can I help you?"
" Snake, its me Grace."
" Grace, Honey where are you?"
" I am on some island. I don't know where it is."
" Snake I miss you."
" Grace, I miss you too."
" Honey I will find you. Snake don't hurt Rain."
"Shit, he is coming."
" Grace how did you know where I kept the phone?"
" Jerry, please let me talk to Snake."
" Don't make me hang up?"
" Fine, you can talk to him if that makes you happy."
I saw her smile for the first time in a long time.
I walked out of the room and went back to bed. I think she has a right to talk to the man she loves. It has been two years since she has seen him and talked to him. I had not seen her this happy in a very long time. I walked back down the stairs and to the office. I wrote the directions to where the island is.
I slid it over in front of Grace.
"This is where we are at."
" Tell him to let Rain go and come and get you Grace."
I saw her smile the biggest smile.
"Thank you, Jerry."
" Snake, grab a pen and paper."
" Jerry gave the directions to the island."
" Come and get me."
" I am coming Grace."
" I will hold you soon. I promise."
"I love you Snake."
" I love you to Grace."
I hung up the phone and ran to Jerry hugging him.
"Thank you, Jerry."
" You're welcome Grace."
" Hawk should never have brought you here."
" He should have left you two alone."
"Let's go to bed."
" He won't be able to leave until morning anyway."
" Might as well get some sleep."
We walked out of his office and up the stairs. I walked into my room and smiled for the first time in a long time. I am so excited I don't know if I will be able to sleep.
I was wrong. I woke up smelling coffee and bacon frying. I jumped up took a shower and dressed in shorts and a top. I walked down the stairs and to the kitchen.
"I am starved I said looking at Jerry."
" It is good to see you finally smiling again Grace."
" I am so happy Jerry."
"I know Grace."
" Now, eat your breakfast it is 10:00 and if I know Snake is not going to waste any time coming for you."
After I ate I helped rinse the dishes and put them in the dishwasher. "Now, why don't you go outside and watch for Snake."
I ran outside and sat watching the water. I saw something coming across the water. I jumped up and saw it headed for the boat ramp. I ran down the steps and across the yard toward the beach. I saw the boat being tied to the pier. Then I saw several bikers get off and start walking toward the beach.
"I saw Snake. Snake I yelled running down the beach."
" Snake, I jumped into his arms kissing every where I could reach on his face."
" Grace I missed you so much."
" Take me home Snake."
" Please take me home."
" Not right now."
" First I am going to claim you and then marry you legally."
" Hawk can never take you away from me again.
He put me on the ground and took my hand.
"Take us to the house
he said. We walked down the beach to the stairs .
As we entered the house I yelled for Jerry. I watched as he stood up from the chair he was sitting in.
"Snake, you remember Jerry?"
" I remember him."
I watched as Snake hit Jerry.
" Why should I?"
" He helped hide you from me for two years. My own cousin."
"That is true but at least it was me that has been living on this island with her alone all this time."
" Be thankful for that."
" At least I would never touch her."
" I took care of her."
" I even tried to get Hawk to take her back home."
"He wouldn't do it."
" Be thankful that I gave her the directions for you to get here."
" Don't forget that Snake."
" When Hawk finds out what I did he is going to be angrier than you are."
" I just got tired of all of this."
" It was not right keeping you two apart."
" I didn't agree with it but I am just a member who does his job."
