New Chapter! Hope ya'll enjoy!!! Chapter 21 The next day Eric had packed everyone's suitcases up in the Hummer as they were about to leave. Natalia hadn't said one word to him all morning. "Nat..." Eric said grabbing her arm before she hopped up into the hummer. "What?" She said blahly as she turned to him. "What is your problem?" "I don't have a problem. Let's just go." She said as she yanked her arm out of his hand and hopped into the Hummer and shut her door. Eric could feel his temperature rising as he walked around to the drivers side and hopped in. He pulled out and got onto the interstate. He turned on the radio seeing if the music would help he temperature go down. He watched Natalia as she just turned to the side and stared out the window. He could see a few tears grazing down her cheek. He felt bad for her. All he wanted to do was hold her in his arms, but all he did was turn the music up and listen. "Your baby blues So full of wonder Your curly cues Your contagious smile And as I watch You start to grow up All I can do Is hold you tight Knowing Clouds will rage and Storms will race in But you will be safe in my arms Rains will pour down Waves will crash around But you will be safe in my arms" Eric could feel the tears start to form in his eyes as he listened to the song. He thought of how much it fit his kids and how much he missed Kamden. He could still hear Natalia's soft cries from across him. He turned the music up a little more as he listened. "Storybooks, full of fairytales Of kings and queens And the bluest skies My heart is torn Just in knowing You'll someday see The truth for lies When the Clouds will rage and Storms will race in But you will be safe in my arms Rains will pour down Waves will crash around But you will be safe in my arms Castles they might crumble Dreams may not come true But you are never all alone Cause I will always, always love you When the Clouds will rage and Storms will race in But you will be safe in my arms Rains will pour down Waves will crash around But you will be safe in my arms" Eric could feel a tear fall is the song went off. He looked over at Natalia who's eyes were closed. He reached over and laced his fingers into hers. She slowly turned her head. Her eyes were red from crying and she looked like she had never seen a bed before. Eric pulled her hand up to his lips and kissed it. Natalia slowly turned back towards the window and fell asleep. Just then Erics phone started vibrating. "Hello?" "Eric, it's H." "What did you find?" "She's at a hotel one exit away from ya'll. We're here." "Ok, we'll be there in 5 minutes." "Ok." Eric floored it the rest of the way. When they got there everyone got out of their cars and started towards the door. Just then the man and woman walked out with no little girl insight. They stopped dead in their tracks when they saw everyone. "Where is my little girl?" Eric said as he walked up to the man. "What are you talking about?" "My little girl, what did you do with her?" "Do you know what he's talking about?" The man said as he turned to his girlfriend. "No..." "Are you freaking kidding me?" Natalia said under her breath. "Dude I don't know what you're talking about." "You know very well what I'm talking about." "Dude I could care less about you little girl." Natalia started rushing towards the guy but Calleigh and Ryan pulled her back. She started pushing them off of her until Ryan grabbed ahold of her arms. She was still squirming. "Wow, dude contain your tiger back there." The guy said as he and his girlfriend let out a chuckle. "You're about to have to worry about someone containing me if you don't tell me where my little girl is." "Daddy..." Kamden yelled from inside the hotel room. "Hold on Kamden I'm coming." Eric said as Frank and Horatio went and grabbed the man and woman. Eric went sprinting into the room. There was smoke every and he saw a bomb that was about to go off. He quickly looked to one side of the room and found his little girl. He ran over there and grabbed her. He sat her down as they entered another room and told her to run. As she ran out Ryan let go of Natalia and Natalia ran and picked her up. "I love you so much." Natalia said as she hugged her and kissed her cheek. "Mommy, daddy's still in there." Kamden said as she pointed to the room. Just as she said that the bomb went off and the room exploded. Frank and Horatio took the man and woman to the police cars and had come back when they heard the explosion. Natalia put Kamden down. She started to run towards the door but Horatio pulled her back. "Horatio, my husbands in there." Natalia said trying to get out of his arms. "Natalia..." Horatio said trying to calm her down. "Horatio please..." Natalia said as her breathing became heavy and she could feel her knees getting weak. She fell into Horatios arms and cried. "Natalia, he's gonna be ok." Horatio said rubbing her head. Just then Eric came from around the side of the building. "Nat?" Eric said stumbling over to her. Natalia peaked around Horatio and ran over to Eric and wrapped her arms around him. "I thought I had lost you." Natalia said into his ear. "I made a promise I would never leave you, remember?" Eric said smiling at her. Natalia smiled up at him as he pulled her closer to him and his lips met hers.
