Oh, my new story. Usually I don’t write stories with more parts, or if I do the parts are very short. But I had this idea for so long now and I have some time.
It was around 7 pm and Rachel Young was in her pyjamas. She had this Saturday of. No work, no Hood. Just her, the television and the pizza she just ordered. But she felt something was missing. She went though the plan for her evening. Pizza, red wine, ice crème, pyjamas… everything was in place but… she just didn’t know. Maybe she missed Hood.
‘Oh don’t go there’ she told herself.
Hood was invited to Franks birthday party. It was a big formula party with a lot if important Agents and people. As far as she had heard from Jacob it was like a prom.
When she heard the doorbell she went to open. Grabbing her purse to pay for her pizza, she looked through the peephole. But there was no pizzaboy.
She opened and looked at Jacob Hood in a very nice suit. Under his arm he had a package, which she assumed was the present for his friend.
“You are not the pizza boy, and that is not my pizza.” She said dryly.
Hood just smiled and went inside without being invited. She was a bit confused, and closed the door.
“What are you doing here?” she asked.
“Picking you up.” He answered as if they had agreed about that before.
“Picking me up for what?”
“The party.” He answered.
“Hood. I’m not invited and there will be a hell lot of Agents. I think you are perfectly save without me.” She explained. He was ruining her evening.
He blinked. “You are not my bodyguard tonight. You are my date. Look…” he took out his invitation: “… Jacob Hood and Guest.”
Now she was pissed: “Were there no other girls who would loved to go with you?”
She knew women loved him and she hated that fact. To be honest, she really wanted to go to that party with him, but he didn’t ask, and then Felix hat introduced Sandy to him. She was a beautiful woman. Black Hair and green eyes, just like his. In fact she looked a bit like his wife Maggie did. The two of them where getting along quite nicely and while he was on the case he called her a lot. It almost broke Rachel’s heart.
He looked a bit confused: “Like who?”
“Oh, I don’t know, Sandy for example?” she said and had a hard time not do spit out the name. “Sorry Hood I’m not your spare tire.”
He seemed to be hurt. “But, I thought you’d like to go.”
“Well, you thought wrong. That even happens to geniuses. And now, please leave.”
He nodded: “I will, as soon as you get this on.” He gave her the big package. She didn’t take it. “It’s not a bomb, it’s a prom dress and now go and chance. If you don’t I’ll kidnap you and take you in your pyjamas to the party.”
“Oh no you won’t.”
“Yes I will, so it’s up to you.” He waited
She took the package and disappeared in her bathroom.
Jacob was relieved. He had thought this situation over and over again. In some of his thoughts she simply took out her gun and shot him. But he was sure she would not do that, because it was her job to protect him.
Rachel opened the package in the bathroom. Inside was a long silky red dress, with small stones at the top. And he even bought matching shoes. To her surprise the dress and the shoes fitted her perfectly. Then she fixed her hair and make-up. When she looked in the mirror she thought: ‘Oh my god, I am Cinderella.’
Hood wasn’t able to get his mouth shut when he saw her in that dress.
“You do know I have a dress, so this wasn’t necessary?” she asked him.
He shook his head to get himself back into reality. “Oh… äh… yes, but this one is red.” He told her.
“Oh really? I thought it’s blue.” She said sarcastically.
Hood signed. “Please Rachel.” He said and offered her his arm. As much as she tried, she simply couldn’t resist. She could see it in his eyes, he knew he did something wrong.
He led her out of her apartment and down to the street where a black SUV was parked.
“You are not going to drive… are you?”
“No, Frank send me a car.” He answered as he opened the door for her. She wasn’t used to enter a car with a long dress, hell she wasn’t used to wear long dresses at all, so she sat down very carefully.
