I do not own any characters from 2 Fast 2 Furious or The Fast and the Furious. I do own the other characters and this idea. Please read and review. This is my first attempt at this kind of fan fiction, so be honest and kind. This is a MarySue story, I have been told. Please don't rip me a new one for that fact.

Timing isn't all exact here, because I don't know when Brian became a cop. I also, don't know how old he is in the movie. If anyone does, please fill me in.

Set up:

Brian and Roman are living in Miami. They have recently opened up a (what seems to be) very successful car shop. Brian had been dating Monica for a couple of months, but things had recently broken off between them.

Roman is working under a car, talking to Brian about what had happened between Monica and him.

Chapter 1

"So what happened," Rome asked Brian as he worked under the engine of the Civic that had come into the shop.

"Nothing, bro," he said obviously not in the mood to discuss that night.

"You are lying," he said. "You have that tone in your voice man. So give up the details. Did you dump her or did she dump you?"

"Man," he said walking away. "It was like this okay…" he sat down to think through the nights events. He hated living them again. He had really liked Monica, but he had known things weren't going to work out. They never did. Not in his favor anyway.

"So spit it out," Rome said not moving from his place under the hood of the car.

"We get to the restaurant. We are talking, you know, things are going good. Then, all of a sudden she starts asking about my past."

"And you freaked out, right?" Rome asked.

"Hell yes, I did. I told her about Mia, but she wanted to know about before that. I stopped her mid-sentence. I said that I did not want to talk about that. I wanted to leave the past in the past, but she wouldn't let it go. She got frigid, talking shit about how I never want to open up. I didn't know what to say. You understand how I just want to block Barstow out completely. Things ended badly there. You know that."

"Yes, I do, but I also know if you ever want a woman to stick around longer than a minute, you need to open up about what happened with S…"

"Don't even mention her," he said in a tone that made Roman shut his mouth. "Anyway," he went on about that night, "since I didn't speak, she left. She said not to call her until I am ready to talk. I won't talk, so I guess I am not calling her."

"You are a sad sad man," Roman said turning to face Brian. "Look man, I know the past sucks for you. Hell, I don't even know why. You had things good, but something happened that changed you. A change that I hated."

"I hated it too," he said thoughtfully, "but it couldn't be helped. You don't know what happened that summer where all that shit went down."

"So fill me in bro," Roman said taking a seat beside his friend.
