"I prayed to God," His voice was shaky but the gun and detonator was steady in his hands. He didn't want to do this. "He led me here. To this."
Lucy shook her head and smiled, "What if he led you to me?"
He seemed to pause. She continued. "You don't want to do this-"
"I don't want to, I have to!" He raised his voice. Then it lowered, "To put my wife and child back on this earth."
"What about the child you have at home?"
He didn't want to think about that. That happening can only mean, everything he did... didn't work. he shook his head.
"I want to help you. But not like this."
"Put the gun down and I'll tell you."
He breathes deeply. He studies Lucy. Lucy feels like his burning holes in her wit it's intensity. He clicks on the gun safety and sets the gun down behind him, along with the detonator.
"How is she?"
Agent Christopher nodded with a small smile. "She's just fine."
Amy ran up to Lucy and wrapped her arms around her thighs. Lucy bent down and picked the small child up. "Is daddy coming?" The girl whispered to her mother.
"We are going to go see him," Lucy whispered. "But first, I have to go get something important. Okay? Can you wait for a bit?"
Amy nodded and asked to be put down. Lucy obliged.
"Do you want me to go with you?" Wyatt asked her.
"Um," She thought about it for a moment. She didn't necessarily need him but support would be nice. "Yes. If you don't mind."
Wyatt gave her his trademark smirk. "Not at all... ma'am."
They got the address. Wyatt was driving as fast as he could with exceeding any speed limits and Lucy fired a text to Agent Christopher with the address.
Lucy placed her phone in her lap and glanced at Wyatt. "Thank you."
He smiled. "What for? This was your idea and I think it's going to work."
"For being here," She said.
Wyatt nodded and gave her another smile.
Lucy nodded to Wyatt and he gave her a knowing smile.
"Thank you, Agent Christopher, for watching Amy over the past few days. It helped a lot."
"It was no trouble," The woman smiled.
Lucy took Amy's hand. "We are going to go now. Figure some things out."
Everyone nodded with understanding.
"Where are we going?"
Lucy had one hand in her pocket, holding a piece of paper and the other gripping the girl's hand. "To see your daddy."
"You came alone?" Came his voice from behind her.
She turned around and met his eyes. "I said I would, didn't I?" She reached into her pocket and pulled out the piece of paper. "This is the name of the man who ordered the hit on your family and the men who carried it out. Take the Mothership, go one last trip and save your family. Then turn over the Mothership or destroy it, I don't care which."
He took the paper from her hands. "Trust me, after I save my girls, I never want to see the damn machine again."
"Oh, I almost forgot," He reached behind his back then lifted his other as if to say, 'It's safe.' "I want be needing this anymore."
It was the journal. The journal that started his journey to rescue his girls. "You know, you never told me how you got it."
He smiled and licked his lips before replying, "You gave it to me."
Lucy gave him a short laugh. "Uh, no I didn't."
"Not yet," This is the most Lucy has seen Garcia Flynn smile in one day. "Take it from me, you age surprisingly well."
"I don't think this is over."
His brow furrowed. "What do you mean?"
Flynn turned his head at the sound f little feet running towards their direction. "Is this-"
His eyes never the girl as he tried to ask Lucy who she was. "Yes."
Amy looked up at Lucy asking a question with her eyes. Lucy nodded.
Amy ran to her father and hugged his legs tightly. He seemed to flinch. He looked scared.
Seeing them together, Lucy saw how much she looked like him.
"She looks like you," He finally said, just above a whisper.
Lucy chuckled. "Funny I was just thinking she looked like you."
He picked her up which thoroughly surprised Lucy. He looked like he immediately regretted it. Lucy watched the lament flicker over his face.
"The note she gave to me when she arrived said something about a mission. Future you explained it like I'd know what it meant. And that afterword 'everything would be right again'. It said, 'They came back. We thought they were gone but they came back'. I don't think it's over."
Flynn set the little girl down but she didn't let him go. It was obvious she was a daddy's girl.
"I don't know what to do-"
It all happened so fast.
"Put your hands up."
FBI unit was surrounding the three. Flynn put his hands up, he looked at Lucy, hurt clear in his eyes.
"You followed me?!" Lucy whipped around and yelled at Christopher.
"Think about what he's done, Lucy," She said, cool as a cucumber.
"Think about what we've done," Lucy hissed. Amy was thrown into her arms.
"I trusted you," Flynn was seething.
"I'm sorry! I-"
"You're sorry? You're sorry?! I trusted you with my family. I trusted you with my child."
Amy buried her face in her shoulder. She was crying. "What are they doing?" She sobbed.
And just like that, he was gone.
