Later that night Peter drove to the site of the next street race. He saw Sean and Jay leaning up against Sean's car. He angrily got out of his car and stormed up to them.
"Stay away from Emma!"
"Is this some kind of joke?" Jay asked Sean with a smirk.
"What are you talking about?"
"We broke up today. Don't tell me it doesn't have something to do with you."
"I don't control Emma so I don't know what you're talking about."
"We're going to settle this now!"
"You seriously think you can beat me?"
"Bring it on!"
Sean and Jay jumped into Sean's car and Peter jumped into his. With a wave of an arm the race started. Peter jumped into an early lead but Sean had more experience and soon took over.
"Damn it!" Peter yelled as Sean's car passed his.
Up ahead Peter saw an opportunity to win. A jogger was on the sidewalk. If Peter swerved then it would force Sean to swerve right into the jogger. With a quick tug of the wheel, Peter almost ran into Sean, forcing Sean onto the sidewalk in order to avoid being hit. With a quick screeching of the breaks, the race was over.
"What the hell was that?" Jay yelled as he got out of the car.
"I think I hit something," Sean said shakily.
"You did," Peter said as he went around to the front of the car. "We need to call an ambulance."
"What? No, this can't be happening!" Sean yelled as he saw the person on the ground.
"Get out of here, man," Jay said as he shoved Sean away. "You're eighteen, you could do real time for this. The kid here is only seventeen, he can take responsibility."
"It was your idea to race! Go Sean!"
Sean got into his car and left, leaving Peter and Jay to wait for an ambulance.
Emma and her parents were eating dinner when the phone rang. Snake got up to answer it and Emma heard a surprised "What?" before his tone quieted too much for her to hear.
"What's going on?" Spike asked as Snake came back into the room.
"That was Peter's father. Peter is in jail. He and Sean Cameron were street racing when someone was hit. No one knows where Sean is."
"What's going to happen to them?" Emma asked.
"I don't know, Sweetheart, but it doesn't look good.
"May I be excused?"
Emma went down into her room, Peter was in jail and Sean was on the run and Emma didn't know how to take it all in. This was her fault. Peter wanted to race Sean because of her.
She looked up to see Sean coming through her window.
"You have to help me, Emma. I have nowhere else to go."
"The police are looking for you. You need to turn yourself in."
"I don't know what happened. One minute I was racing and the next minute I hit a guy."
"I know. But you can't run. It isn't going to help you ."
"I'm sorry for messing up again."
"Emma," her mother called down, "the police are here and they want to talk to you."
"You can do this," Emma whispered as she grabbed Sean's hand. "I'm right here with you.
Sean took a deep breath and together he and Emma went up the stairs to face his fate.
Thanks for all the reviews. I really need to make this clear that a lot of my story is based on spoilers and previews for season six. I took some things out and adjusted some things I didn't like. I saw the previews as a good starting point for this story. In the subsequent chapters I'm going to be taking the characters on a different journey then what the spoilers are indicating.
