Epilogue – Toxic

With a taste of your lips I'm on a ride

You're toxic; you've got me slipping under

With a taste of a poison paradise

I'm addicted to you,

Don't you know that you're toxic?

Britney Spears

Well, I did it. I fell for the man that everyone told me not to. Sheldon Jeffrey Sands, the heartbreaker. Though he would never dream of breaking my heart. The girls at work still won't accept him; they tell me that he's toxic. I suppose he is, in a way. But in the best way possible.

I got him to hospital in Mexico. He had to stay there for a couple of weeks, and I stayed too. I wasn't injured, but they still wanted to check me. As for Sands, they cleaned up his bullet wounds, but as I suspected, there was nothing they could do about his sight. He's finally managed to accept that he's blind, but refuses to remove his sunglasses in public. He gets some strange looks…

He's managing okay though. The CIA still let him work there, as a field agent too. He can't go anywhere on his own, but that's not a problem, as I'm his official partner. He's got a guide dog too, a golden retriever called Toni. Who would've guessed that such a tough guy got on so well with a dog?

Mr Cooper wasn't too fussed that I failed. The President's safe, the cartel's gone, and the people of Culiacan live in happiness. I want to go back to Mexico some day, meet up with El. I hope he's alright.

So, slowly, Sands is adjusting to his new life. It's hard for all of us, but we're gonna manage. I just know it.

Author's notes: It's finished! Thank you to readers, reviewers, favouriters (if that's a word), Robert Rodriguez for making a cool film, Johnny Depp for making Sands awesome, Britney Spears for singing a great song and my mum for proof reading. I think that's all...There may be a sequel, I'm not sure. I have ideas but I'm a bit stuck, so you'll have to wait and see. Lots of love, savvybizbie xxxxxxxxxx
