Chapter Thirty-Three| Theodore

"Everything is going to be okay, Eden." I watch Oliver smile at her as he lifts her dress to check the wound.

I look away when I see her belly covered in so much blood.

She's dying.

"We need to take her to the hospital!" I shout and clench my hair in frustration. "They've hurt my family!"

I clench my jaw and it's as if a sudden dose of anger fills my body.

I storm past Eddie who looks at me with wide eyes and I make my way to the weapon cabinet.

I pull on a bulletproof vest and grab the biggest gun I can find. I strap two other guns to the outside of my leg.

"Theo, what the fuck are you doing?" Oliver yells at me, whilst assessing my Small.

My Small and my Tiny.

I choose to ignore him and make my way outside onto the beach. The speedboats have reached shore now and I spot at least five men on each of the boats.

"Theodore, you fucking lunatic!" Oliver calls out again.

They hold their guns up as I walk closer to them. I smirk when I see some of them shuffle backwards.

One man in particular looks at me in so much fright he begins to piss himself.

I storm up to him and hold my gun to his head.

"Who pulled that trigger?" I growl out and his body begins to shake. "Who pulled the fucking trigger?!" I shout in his face.

His head turns to a bald-headed man and I make my way over to him.

"You pull that trigger?" I stare down at him and he gulps, nodding his head.

I nod my head and step back.

I smile.

He smiles.

I laugh.

He releases a nervous chuckle.

"You shot someone very important to me." I glare at him and he looks away from me, all of a sudden scared.

"I'm s-so..." I don't give him time to finish his sentence before I shoot him in the head.

Then every single man cocks their gun but I don't fear anyone.

The only thing I fear is losing my girl, who is fighting for her life because of these morons.

"We have instructions to bring you back to Professor Richards, Mr.Thomas." Another man speaks up and I look at him.

I shoot him.

"Anyone else want to say something irrelevant?" I shout in anger and they all step back.

I slowly nod my head, take a deep breath and before they know it I've shot every single one of them.

I drop the gun on the floor and look into the distance and don't see any more boats.

I make my way back into the villa and Eddie looks at me in shock but I ignore him and look at my small.

Her skin is a dull brown now, it doesn't glow like it usually does and now she's struggling to breathe.

"The Doctor is on his way," Oliver mutters and I look at him in disbelief.

"We need to get her to a hospital," I growl out and drop down next to my baby. "Hey, Small," I whisper gently.

My heart breaks when a whimper is the only thing to escape her lips.

"Our Tiny." She cries out and I blink away the tears as I grab hold of her hand and rest it against my cheek.

"She'll be okay," I tell her and she shakes her head, her tears running down her face uncontrollably.

"I-I c-can't breathe." She wheezes and I look to Oliver with wide, scared eyes.

He gets up and goes to retrieve an oxygen mask. He places it gently on Small and I look away, not being able to see her suffer so much.

I did this to her.

I put her in this position.

"Where is this doctor?!" I growl out, getting frustrated.

"He's here," Eddie says and leads the doctor into the living room. His eyes widen when he sees the state that Small is in.

He nods his head at Oliver and begins to set up his equipment.

"I'm going to need you all to clear the room." The Doctor asks us politely but I shake my head and push Small's hand impossibly closer to my cheek.

"Theodore. We can't stay in here, I trust this man, please let's leave him to save your lady." Oliver tells me and I look at my girl who looks at me with watery eyes.

I clench my eyes shut and slowly stand up. I bite my lips when Small clutches tightly onto my hand.

She doesn't want me to go.

"Come on, Theo."

"I love you," I whisper and kiss her forehead.

I pull my hand away from hers and a muffled whimper escapes her lips.

"She's pregnant," I tell the Doctor and he nods his head in understanding.

I slowly walk out until she's no longer in view.

"You've made quite a mess out there." Eddie chuckles and I just give him a blank stare. He stops laughing and bites his lip, looking away. "I'm sure she'll be okay." He whispers and I sit at the kitchen island and hold my head in my hands.

"She's literally my life, Eddie. She saved me." I whisper in pain.

"We will get our revenge." He pats my shoulder and gives me a tight-lipped smile.

"Yeah," I mumble and stare at the wall in front of me.

"Why Brazil?" I question Oliver and he bites his lip.

"That's where he is, Theo and that's where he will die."

5 hours later

"What's taken him so long?!" I yell, my knee bouncing up and down.

"Theodore, calm down." Oliver holds his hands up and I finally lose it.

"Don't tell me to calm down when the woman I love could be dying along with my unborn child!" I shout so loud, Oliver steps back and looks at me in shock.

He then takes a deep breath and opens his arms. I slowly walk up to him and he pulls me into a hug.

"Everything is going to be okay." He rubs my back and I cry into his shoulder. "I'm sure of it."

After about twenty minutes the door to the living room opens. I shoot up from my seat and stare at the Doctor with wide eyes.

"Are my girls okay? Please tell me they are okay!" I cry out and stand in front of him.

"She's a very lucky woman. If the bullet went an inch lower she would have lost the baby." My lips begin to tremble.

"They're okay." He smiles and nods his head. "C-Can I see her?"

"She's asleep, it will be a couple of hours before she wakes. I've left a schedule for her and the wound must be cleaned regularly." The doctor informs and we all nod our head.

"I need to get us to Brazil," Oliver tells him and the Doctor bites his lip.

"Travelling is out of the question, Oliver. It's too dangerous for her to fly." Oliver sighs and rests his head back.

"What would happen if we were to fly?" Oliver asks.

"Blood clots most likely due to the air pressure and the fact that she is pregnant is even riskier."

"One million pounds," Olive says and I furrow my eyebrows along with the Doctor.

"Sorry?" He frowns.

"That's how much I'll pay you if you travel with us. Come on, Jeff, you owe me this." The man now known as Jeff sighs and nods his head.

"I'll need to take a lot of medical equipment on the plane." He tells Oliver.

"Great, we'll leave early in the morning." He nods. "Eddie, I need you to stay awake, keep an eye out for any threats." Eddie agrees and makes his way outside.

Then he pats my shoulder. "Go check on your Small." He gives me a small smile.

I make my way into the living room and smile at the Doctor as I walk past him.

Once I'm in the room I close the door gently behind me and my eyes water as I see my Small asleep.

I go to sit next to her and I rest my hand gently on her belly.

"My babies," I whisper and kiss her stomach and then her forehead.
