Dom got off the bed and opened the door to Teresa. “I need to talk to Brian.”
Dom motioned her into the room and said, “So talk to him.”
Teresa walked over to where Brian still lay on the bed and asked, “Does he have to be here?”
“He’s gonna find out anyway. What’d you need T?” Brian asked as he sat up.
“I wanted to tell you that I’ve decided to take the boys back to Santos and we’ll wait for you to get finished with this Reyes person.”
“Okay. That’d probably be best. Sorry for dragging you guys up here in the middle of everything.”
“I understand why you wanted us here and we’ll be there when you two are done.”
“Done?” Dom asked trying to contain his growl.
Brian stood in front of Dom and stroked his jaw. He said, “Baby she doesn’t mean us; she means the heist to take down Reyes.”
“As long as that’s what she means.” Dom said as he looked over Brian’s shoulder at Teresa.
“I’m not trying to get in between you two! I don’t care if you’re fucking or whatever! We’re here because Brian wants us here!” Teresa yelled. “How many times do we have to fight about this?”
“Dominic apologize to Teresa. We have too much to do right now.” Brian said.
“Let’s agree to disagree. You say you don’t want Brian but your conversations indicate otherwise.” Dom said.
Teresa went over to Dom and yelled, “Let’s get this through your thick skull for the last time! Brian has always wanted you! I have always been second! Now we are leaving for Santos! We’ll go the market to get a cab and when you’re finished here Brian knows where we’re at!”
Dom just stood there and Brian led Teresa out of the room. “T I’m....”
“Brian don’t apologize. You’re doing too much of that lately. We took this a day at a time and it’s best we went back to Santos until you guys are done. Whatever happens you can still be in the boys’ lives just be careful these next few days.”
Teresa went back downstairs and gathered the boys and their duffel bags up. The boys waved bye to Brian and left with Teresa. Down at the market she bought the boys a piece of fruit each and waited for the cab to arrive. What she didn’t know was that she was being watched. She kept Nicky and Oleg by her side and when their ride pulled up in front of them she got them packed in the car quickly.
A few streets over they rode into a street tunnel and were surrounded by a convoy of trucks. The driver stopped the car and got out and another driver got in. He looked in the rearview mirror and said, “You’re needed elsewhere Mrs. Gazelle.” Then the new driver followed the convoy to a hotel and pulled around back. A group of men surround the car and helped the kids out of the car and Hobbs collected Teresa.
“What are you doing? Where are you taking my sons?” Teresa asked as the men took the boys into an elevator and Hobbs continued to take her down the hall.
“The boys will be fine. Another agent will look after them while you help me with some information.”
“Information? I don’t know anything.”
Hobbs took her into a side room from the conference room they were using to collect information and had her sit down. He leaned against the table by her chair and said, “Yes you know what...no who I’m looking for and you’ll tell me eventually.”
“I don’t know anything.”
“Where are Brian O’ Conner and Dominic Toretto hiding?” Hobbs said.
“I’m not telling you. You won’t let them go home so if they won’t tell you then I won’t.”
Luke stood up from the table and said, “You won’t be able to go home unless you tell me where they are. I’ll charge you with aiding and abetting two felons, not counting the rest of their team.”
Teresa glared at Hobbs and said, “Charge me then because you’re not getting one word out of me.”
Luke looked over Teresa and concluded that she was one of the most stubborn women he’d ever met and said, “I’ll be back. I’m going to go draw up your arrest warrant. But just so you know when I arrest you then the boys will be in the state of New Jersey’s custody and they’ll be put in foster care.”
Teresa got up and charged Hobbs. She pounded her fists into his chest and screamed, “You asshole bastard! You should be arrested too for kidnapping!”
“No I’m detaining possible witnesses.” Luke said as he gathered Teresa’s wrists in one hand and wiped her tears with his other hand.
“Let me go!” She snarled.
Luke let her go and she went to the other side of the room and he said, “I’ll be back in a little bit with lunch. The boys are being taken care of so you don’t have to worry.”
“You better not touch one hair on their heads.”
“They’re fine. My assistant has them near her room.” When he saw Teresa go for the opposite doors he said, “You can’t get out. All the doors are locked from the outside. Now I want you to think long and hard about the situation and when I come back you better have some answers.”
Teresa sat on a couch and pulled into herself as Hobbs left the room. She looked around the small conference room and checked how many doors there were and tried to think of a plan.
