Chris had tied Michelle to chair when
he realized that she was not coming back to him willingly. He had also hit
her twice and she was now floating somewhere between consciousness and
semi-consciousness. She kept trying to think about other things, but
each time her mind wandered back to Chet she started to cry. Chris slapped
her again. This time a trickle of blood flowed from her lip.
The S.W.A.T. team slowly made their move toward the
house. So far, Chris hadn't noticed that the police were there which
was good. They made it all the way to the back window and were able to see
Michelle tied up. Once the SWAT team was in place they radioed back to the
commanding officer that they were in place.
"The SWAT team is in place. We're going to
try to take him out." Chet looked worried.
"The girl's not in the way is she?"
The commander rolled his eyes. He was beginning to regret having
invited this guy. The commander radioed back for them to be prepared to
take the guy out.
"Chris Larkin. This is the police
we have you surrounded. Let you hostage go and come out throwing your
weapon out first." The SWAT team at the back of the house watched as
Chris was about to go over and grab his hostage. The marksman shot Chris
before he could make his way over to Michelle. The marksman radioed back
that they had him.
"We have him. Everybody move in."
Chet, realizing that it was over, followed the rest of the
policemen into the house.
When they busted down the door, they
found Chris lying on the floor and Michelle tied up in the chair. Her head
was slumped over. Chet ran over to the chair thinking that she had been
shot. She was alright, though, but her face was bruised and
she was bleeding.
"Michelle, honey. are you
alright?" Chet lovingly raised her head and kissed her bruised face.
"It's alright. You're okay now." She
was crying, but it was only because she was so happy to be in Chet's arms.
As the police came in to collect Chris, Chet decided to take Michelle to
Rampart to get her checked out.
It had been a long day and now Michelle was tucked into
her bed with Chet right there watching over her. He made a vow to himself
that he would never let her out of his sight.
"What are you thinking about, Chet?"
he couldn't help it any longer. He had to tell her how he felt.
"I was thinking about how much I love you and I was
wondering if you have given any thought to the question that I asked you the
other day." He wall trembling as he anticipated her answer.
"Oh, you mean when you asked me to
marry you and I said that I had to wait until everything was over? Everything
is over, isn't it?" Chet nodded. the suspense was killing
"The answer is yes, I'll marry
you. I love you Chester B., with all of my heart. And, I
want to spend the rest of my life with you." Chet was so happy that he took
her into his arms and kissed her passionately. Even though he had given up
the Phantom, he had to thank the Phantom for all of the happiness that he
was feeling right now.
We Were Lovers
by G. Estefan and E.Estefan, Jr.)
One day soon
It's gonna happen just by chance
You and I
Will just succumb to this romance
On that day my love will find you
And you'll discover what a wonder life can be
And you will know how much I love you
If we were lovers
If we were more than just good friends
I know how good it could be
Just by the way you're looking at me
As if we were lovers
If we were lovers
I've waited so long for that day
I think you feel the same way
You try so hard not to give it away
Afraid that I'll discover
What in your heart you know
Is meant to be
But darlin' if you want it to be me
To be the one to say 'I want you'
Then I'm telling you now
Gonna find a way somehow
To be your lover
To spend the whole night making love
Then find it's never enough
Just think what we are giving up
Everyday that we're not lovers
Few times in our lives
Can we feel this way
It could be a shame
Just to throw it away
Time is slipping by
We don't know what's ahead
I don't want to look back
And have any regrets
How much I love you
