"I mean, I could kill Jack now... Or you could come with me." I heard Hayes' voice, but couldn't see anything.

"Hayes?" I muttered, too scared to make a sound.

"Yes, baby?"

"Where am I?" I attempted to move my limbs but I couldn't. It wasn't like I was being restrained, but like I was paralyzed in shock.

"We're home." He flipped on the lights and we were in a small room with concrete walls and no windows.

Jack was leaning against the wall, almost unconscious, bleeding from his head "You caused that, Gabby," he pointed to Jack "The blood is technically on your hands."

"No I didn't," I muttered as I felt tears falling from my eyes "No I didn't." I tried to raise voice but it was still shaky

"Yes you did. If you could just listen and stop being so stubborn, I wouldn't have to do that," He pulled out a gun from his waistband and cocked it back "Or this." He pointed the gun at Jack.

"Hayes, please stop." I sobbed

"On three, ok?" He looked at me with a blank expression, but I could sense the eagerness in his voice.

"Please, I'm begging you."

"One."

"I'll do anything!"

"Two."

"Hayes!" I screamed

"Three."

I closed my eyes and heard a loud gunshot then complete silence amongst the room.

"Gabby, Gabby."

I opened my eyes to see Jack, leaned over me with a worried expression on his face "Hey, you ok?" He chuckled.

"Jack, you're ok." I immediately wrapped my arms around his neck, hugging him tight

"Yeah, but are you? You were shaking and mumbling something. It was like you were begging for something." He wrapped his arms around me

"I... I don't know." I admitted

"What was it about?" He started to gently rub my back

"We were in a basement or something and you were dying and Hayes was there and I was tied up. He shot and killed you right in front of me then.. Then it was over." I rushed through the description with tears falling from my eyes and the sleeve of his shirt was getting wet.

He let out a sigh and held me tighter.

"I promise that everything will be ok, and I'm not just saying that," Just the sound of his voice calmed me "I know that you're upset, and you have every right to be, but it was just a dream. I'm ok and you're ok, and I promise it's gonna stay that way." He pulled me into his lap

"Jack?"

"Yes?"

"Can you promise me something?"

"Anything."

"Please don't get hurt. Whether it's because of me or anything else. I just.. I really need that right now."

"I promise." He gave me a weak smile.

"Pinky promise?" I held out my pinky.

"Pinky promise." He slightly laughed and hooked his with mine.
