1. VacationLucky POV
Jesse set me on my feet when we got inside; we found everyone waiting for us inthe lounge. They all looked at us expectantly,
“I ‘am here to stay” I professed and they all started cheering and laughing
“It’s about time!” Maria said, walking over to me and hugging me and smiling
“I second that” Angie replied, winking at me
, and Jason laughed behind her.
“We’re glad you’re staying Lucky,” he said warmly
“I’m guessing we’re not out of the woods yet?” Maria asked, noti
cing ourexpressions. Jesse nodded.
“The CIA is probably going to come after Lucky, I wanted to run her to her island.
Just until we can figure out how to
handle this” Jesse said
.Maria and Jason nodded with understanding; I was shocked that they knewabout Jesse being an agent.
“You all know he’s a secret agent?” I asked incredulous
lyThey all laughed and I heard Jesse chuckle beside me.
“Well we live with
the man, of course we know” Maria said rolling her eyes
“Humph” I said, a little irritated that I was the only one who didn’t know
anything. Jesse turned to face me.
“We don’t have much time, we can’t give Bill and his men a chance to catch us,”
he said.
“We’re leaving now?” I asked, he nodded and turned to Jason
“Get a car, you’ll take us to the airport. I’ll c
all my pilot and tell him to get the Jet 
ready, we’ll be at the airport in an hour” H
e instructed, and Jason flew out of thelounge.He looked at 
me “Go pack little one, make any calls you want to make and leaveyour phone here” he said
“Why?” I asked dumbfounded
“We can’t have them trace us, this will buy us more time” he replied
“Oh” I said, he kissed my forehead and left 
“Come on, I’ll help you pack” Angie said pulling me towards the stairs
 We walked into my room and Angie immediately opened the closet.
“Given that we don’t know when you’ll be coming back, we better pack for alengthy stay,” she said, scrutinizing me “But he’ll probably get y
ou anything you
need in Bermuda”
She added.I nodded not exactly knowing what to do now.
“How are you feeling?” she asked, noticing my apprehension
“Somewhere between excited and terrified,” I confessed, she smiled
“Try to enjoy this and forget about Bil
l coming after you. Jesse wont let anything
happen to you” she insisted
,I smiled and nodded.
“Hit the shower sister, you don’t have all day you know. I’ll start packing for you”
she said.
“Oh yeah” I said, snapping out of it and rushed to the bathroom
finished showering and walked out to my room, not sure what to wear; I didn’t 
know where I was going.Angela had already packed two huge suitcases, I looked at the one she waspacking now; it was filled with my lingerie. I raised my eyebrows at her.
“What?” she asked stifling a laugh “You have to keep the man entertained afterall”
she said and I blushed.There was a soft knock on my door and I was shocked at who came in.
“Mandy, Ally!” I exclaimed, going over to hug them; there was a point when I
thought I would never see them again.
“Hey Lucky, um wow we need to visit more often I see” Mandy said chuckling
“Hi, we’ve come to rescue you” Ally said “Hey Angie” she added
over myshoulder. I gave them both a confused look, until I noticed they were carrying asuitcase of their own. I sighed.
“Well Jesse
said he is taking you to his island, so we brought you a couple of 
things you might need” Mandy said, laying it on the bed and opening it 
.I looked inside and the suitcase was filled with different bathing suits,sunglasses, hats and summer dresses.
“Wow” I said, that’s all I could say
“We didn’t exactly shop a lot of these for your wardrobe, so we figured why not now” Ally said, handing me a caramel colored dress; it was above knee lengthand very beautiful “Go
get dressed” she said
I didn’t even notice I was still in my bathrobe,
chagrinned I walked over to mycloset and got dressed. I walked back out and Mandy handed me a pair of nudepumps, I slid them on.
“See, the perfect getaway look” She chimed
and Ally laughed,
“I think that’s everything,” Angie said, closing the last of the suitcases
“Thanks Angie, you’re a life saver,” I said and she gave me a smile
Maria walked in “Are you ready?” she asked and I nodded grabbing my
“Jason and Jeffery will take your luggage to the car” she said, as I followed her out 
of my room, the girls quietly followed behind.
We got downstairs to find Jesse talking on his phone in a language I didn’t 
understand; I noted his change in clothing too. He looked gorgeous; my heart leaped
Good God you’re hopeless
I thought.
He hung up and took my hands in his “You look beautiful” he said lean
ing down
to kiss my cheek “Are you ready to go?”
“Yes” I said and we all walked outside
, Jason and Jeffery were putting my luggagein the A
ston Martin, I noted none of them were Jesse’s
“Don’t you have luggage?
I asked and he smiled.
“No, I have clothes at the island already” he said, I raised my eyebrows
at him.
Then again I shouldn’t be surprised, he said he hated the suitcase life
.I chuckled when he opened the door for me, and he climbed in the back with me.Everyone leaned in the windows.
“We are going to miss you around here” Maria said, and I squeezed her hand
going to miss you too,
” I said, looking at Ally and Mandy who blew a
kissour direction.
“Remember if Bill comes here…” Jesse said, looking at Maria
“I don’t know of your whereabouts” she finished for him and he smiled
“Take lots of pictures” Angie called out to us
