~*~*Chapter 48*~*~

After last nights event and their new discoveries everyone decided they were in need of sleep after a very long day. Sara had retreated to Michael’s old room and curled up on the bed and it seemed that as soon as he head hit the pillow she was asleep. Although sleep came quickly her dreams were filled with some of the horrible events she had experience in the last few weeks. Every time she closed her eyes she could see the man in the ski mask but this time he would remove it and she would see Nick standing there with a gun. She remembers T-bags evil laugh that made her blood run cold.

With a jolt Sara sprang up into a sitting position and continued to breath heavily. Pulling her hair back she brought her legs leg in close to her chest and rested her head on her knees that were underneath her blanket. After a few moments she lifted her head up and looked around the room and realized she was safe here and they couldn’t get her.

Once she was able to relax she slipped out from under the covers and grabbed the bathrobe at the bottom of the bed and slipped it on as she left the room. It was still very quiet in the house considering it was only 5am. Making her way down the stairs she headed for the kitchen to get a glass of water. She searched through the cupboards looking for a glass and jumped when she heard someone speak.

“You alright?”

With her heart returning to normal speed when she recognized the voice she turn and looked at Michael. “Yea just thirsty”

With a smile Michael nodded and took the few steps to get closer to her. Once he was in reaching distance Sara moved into his arms and he wrapped his arms around her and held her close. His lips pressed against her forehead and he whispered to her, telling her it would all be over soon. With a long sigh Sara buried her face in his shoulder and inhaled his scent.

“I hope your right,” she tells him and her eyes looked up at him.

With a slight smile Michael’s lips brushed against hers softly. Slowly her arms were around his neck and she deepens the kiss allowing his tongue to comfort her own. Pulling her closer to himself, his hands ran up and down her body and continued to kiss her with so much passion. A part of him was so scared earlier that he would never see her again, never talk to her, kiss her, hear her laugh, but now here she was safe and in his arm which had no intention of letting her go again.

Filling up her glass with water along with one for himself he took Sara’s hand and led her back to the living room and sat down on the sofa. He pulled her down and positioned her between his legs as he sat diagonal on the sofa. Her back rested against his chest and Michael’s fingers ran through her soft hair. “What’s the paper crane for?” Sara asked noticing it in the room.

“What?” Michael questioned her while he held her close.

“The crane on the side table by the picture of you and Linc and the woman I’m guessing is your mom” Sara said, “Is there some significance to it like the rose you gave me.”

“Well before I was born my dad took off to pursue his career so when I was little he wasn’t really around. My mom raised Linc and I on her own for about two years, I don’t remember much in the beginning because I was young but according to Linc when ever she went to work and had to leave us with a sitter she would make us these origami cranes. We never knew why but when she had to go out we had fun looking for it. Most time it would be on our nightstand or by that family picture of the three of us. We never asked her why she did it, we just collected them and even after my dad returned she continued to do it, it was kind of our thing. I remember when Linc was eleven and I was eight we asked our mom why she would leave us the crane and she told us that it was to remind us that she was always going to be there for us and would be watching out for us always. Three days later she was involved in a hit and run and didn’t make it.” Michael told her and he felt Sara move herself closer to him and intertwined her fingers with his. “The night she died when we returned here after being at the hospital there on the side table in this room was a paper crane that she left us before she went out earlier that day.”

“I’m sorry I didn’t mean to bring up a sad subject,” Sara said feeling a little guilty.

“No it’s okay I don’t mind telling you” Michael told her placing another kiss on her hair.

“So I guess you make origami for a lot of people then, kind of your thing?”

“Actually I’ve only made them for people I love, my family and you” Michael told her.

At these words Sara’s head turned and looked at him with a shocked look on her face. Michael smiled and then brushed a strand of hair behind her ear, “Sara I’m in love with you”

No one other then her mother had ever said that to her and Sara felt the tears well up in her eyes as she leaned forward and kissed him passionately. Her arms were around his neck and she sat on his lap and brought her body closer to his. “I love you,” she whispered against Michael’s lips and at these words Michael couldn’t help but cup her face and pull her closer. He could feel Sara’s fingers tugging at his shirt and he had to push her back a little to he could speak. “Sara someone could walk in or we’ll wake them up.” Michael told her but Sara didn’t seem to be listening.

“Well I think I need a shower,” she told him as her arms pulled him up from the couch and down the hall and into the bathroom. Michael had locked the door as Sara moved over to the shower and turned on the water. Seconds later their bodies collided, as they held each other and their mouths connected in a hot kiss. Sara’s quick hands removed his shirt and tossed it across the room. In a quick swift motion Michael picked up Sara and sat her down on the bathroom counter without breaking from the kiss.

Immediately Sara’s legs wrapped around Michael’s waist and pulling him closer to her and her arms rested on his bare shoulders. After a few moments of kissing Sara leaned back breaking the kiss so she could remove her shirt. Their pants and underwear also fell to the floor and Michael quickly unclasped Sara’s bra. She hopped off the counter and made her way over to the steaming shower. Getting anxious Michael’s hand moved around her waist and tickled her stomach. Sara tried to pry his long fingers away from her as she jumped into the shower giggling with Michael right on her tail.

The hot water hit their bodies and Sara let out a moan of satisfaction and pulled Michael closer to her. Holding her waist Michael’s mouth was on hers without much thought and Sara greatly added to the hot kiss. “I’ve missed this,” she whispered against his mouth.

“I though I’d never see you again” Michael told her with all honesty while he cupped her face from under the showerhead. Pressing her body up against his, her head rested on his shoulder while Michael kissed and lick the skin on her neck. Her eyes rolled into the back of her head by the great feeling Michael was giving and the sensation she felt in his arms once again. Moans left both their mouths, Michael lifted Sara up and as she wrapped he legs around his waist while he pressed her back against the wall of the shower and crashed his lips on hers again.

It seemed like forever since they had been together and the high they both felt at this moment was like nothing they had ever felt before. They gripped each other’s body and were unwilling to let each other go. They were panting under the hot water and their chins rested on the other’s shoulder. Their eyes were closed as they tried to return their bodies to normal while they leaned against the wall. Slowly Sara feet landed on the floor of the shower stall but her arms never left Michael as his never left her.

“We’re gonna stop these people” Michael whispered to her. Sara could only nod and hold Michael tighter. “Today it will all be over and we will be closer to the end,” he told her. Pulling back a little Sara was able to look into Michael’s eyes and gave a slight smile before he moved closer and kissed her again.

Once they broke apart Sara opened her mouth to say something but stopped when they both hear a knock on the door. Both their heads whipped around and stared at the door with wide eyes. After a few seconds there was another knock on the door, Michael was about to say something but Sara covered his mouth and spoke herself.

“Yeah” she called out.

“Oh hey Sara” she heard Linc say on the other side of the bathroom door. “Do you know where Michael is?”

“Um I think you said he was going to pick up something” she called to him.

“Alright thanks” they heard Linc say and then walk down the hall. Once they were in the clear Sara removed her hand from Michael’s mouth and stepped back from him. With a smile Sara pulled her wet hair back and out of her face. “Your hair dries faster then mine so we’ll have less explaining to do” she told him.

With a smile Michael gave her a kiss on the on the forehead. “So what exactly am I gone to pick up?” he asked her.

Sara gave a little laugh, “I feel like a caramel mocha” she told him and with a nodded and one more kiss Michael stepped out of the shower and wrapped a towel around himself.

“I’m just going to finish up” Sara told him and reached for the shampoo bottle and stood under the water. Michael quickly dressed and then with a quick goodbye he slipped out the door and made his way to the back door and left the house without being seen.

Several minutes later Sara came out of the bathroom dressed and drying her hair with a towel. Walking into the living room she saw Linc at the table with papers and documents scattered over the table. As she entered Linc looked up and gave a slight smile, “Hey, how’d you sleep?”

“Alright” Sara told him as she moved over to stand beside him. “Whatcha looking at?”

“Hopefully our way of ending this once and for all” Linc told her and Sara picked up one of the documents up and became reading it.

“Now we just need to put the plan together and put it into action” Sara said taking a seat. While the two remained quiet for a few moments, they heard the front door open and then in walked Michael with four drinks from Starbucks.

Looking up at him Sara smiled, stood up and walked over at him. “Just what I needed!” Sara said cheerfully reaching from the starbucks and leaned foreword to give Michael a quick peck on the lips. As she walked back to her seat Michael had a huge smile on his face and he didn’t miss the smirk his brother had either when he handed him his coffee.

“Thanks mans, but I ain’t kissing you for it” Linc said with a chuckle taking the coffee.

Michael laughed as well, “Yea thank god for that.”
