When Things Go Wrong
By: Santiva Potter
Summary: Follow Dom and the team as they try to reconstruct their family and all that they knew and loved.
Letty laughed as she thumbed through her newly earned cashed again, as she weaved through the people at Race Wars. She was quite please with herself, that asshole had deserved it too. She opened the door to the team's trailer and found Mia behind the miniature sink.
"When did your pockets get so thick, Let?" Mia asked eyeing the money.
"My pockets have always been thick, Mi. They're just getting thicker!"
Both girls laughed.
"No but seriously, I won it off of some idiot who was looking for ass, but instead got his ass handed to him," Letty laughed.
"Awh, I almost feel bad for the poor guy," Mia teased.
"What guy?" Dom asked coming into the trailer.
"Letty was mistaken for a show girl of some sort by another racer, and now Let is 2 grand richer."
Dom laughed wrapping his arms around Letty's waist. "That's my girl." He put the money in Letty's back pocket and kissed her full on the lips, forgetting the presence of his younger sister.
"Oh you know Dom, Letty was doing great in communicating until you waltzed in here," Mia snapped. Neither Letty nor Dom moved. "Ugh, I'm out of here," Mia continued. "You two are disgustingly in love with each other. Too much for one sane person to handle."
Dom laughed and picked Letty up and placed her on the kitchen counter. "Now that I've got you alone…"
"On the kitchen counter?" Letty asked laughing. "I'm not sure Mia or the boys would appreciate that."
"Well there's isn't enough room in the bedroom. I need room to maneuver; you are a wild little thing."
Letty broke the kiss and smiled. She gazed at Dom for awhile before she groaned.
"What?" he asked.
"We have a heist tonight," she reminded him.
"It's the last one," Dom said. She grabbed his face between her hands and forced him to look her dead in the eyes.
"The last one?" she clarified.
"This is the last one Letty. I promise."
Letty gasped for breath, desperately trying to hang on to that promise. Of course it didn't matter much now. Last heist or not, she was still sitting in the back of the Honda bleeding and gasping for breath.
"Leon do you think you can step on it?" Mia growled from the back, hovering over Letty. "She's dying back here."
"Mia, I'm going as fast as I can without attracting attention," Leon responded. "If we keep speeding through here, with cops potentially on our asses Dom will get arrested for sure."
"I don't care if Dom goes back to Lompoc for eight years!" Mia yelled. "Letty is bleeding to death back here! I need you to put your damn foot on the gas Leon!"
Dom turned around from the passenger's seat to reply back, but Letty's gruff voice cut over them.
"I'm not bleeding to death back here Mia, I'm just bleeding," Letty snapped. "Both of you need to chill out. Just keep driving Leon."
Dom turned back around and didn't say anything. Nothing could be heard in the car expect for the angry roar of the engine.
"Dom?" Letty asked.
"What is it, mami?"
"Look at me," Letty ordered. Dom turned around to the back seat. In his eyes, Letty could see the pain, the guilt and misery that masked him. She just wanted to make it better for him. She didn't want him to worry.
"I'm going to be fine, Dom. I promise."
Dom leaned over the seats and kissed Letty softly, speaking so softly that Mia could barely hear him. "Don't leave me, Letty."
"Hospital!" Mia all but shrieked as the car jerked to the right, sending Dom back into his seat. They arrived at the hospital only a few minutes later.
"C'mon Letty let's get you out of here," Mia said helping her friend get out of the car. Dom made a move to leave the vehicle as well but Leon held him back.
"I think you should let me stay with Letty," Leon suggested.
"What?" Dom asked.
"Listen Dom, Cop O'Connor probably has the whole force looking for you. You need to get Mia home, get all of our stuff and run south to Mexico. I'll stay with Letty until the doctor release and we'll meet you there."
"What about Vince? Or Jesse?"
"Mia will still be in L.A. so she can give us updates on Vince, and when he's good to go, we'll send for him."
Leon sighed. "We don't even know where he is right?"
"No," Dom stated grimly. "He could be anywhere. We're the only family he has."
"I'll take Mia home and leave her there. I'll get the car and go hunting for Jesse, and when I've got him, we'll run south and meet you and Letty. Mia will call when Vince gets out of the hospital and I'll come up to get him. We good?"
"Good. I'll go get Mia."
Leon ran into the hospital and saw Mia waiting in the hallway.
"Did you get Letty to a doctor?" Leon asked.
"Yes, she's in the emergency room," Mia responded. "Now, all we have to do is wait."
"Listen, Mi I need you to go back to the car with Dom. I'll look over Letty," Leon said.
"What? Why? What's happened now?"
"Dom will explain once you're in the car, okay Mia? Just get in, and I'll see you, when I see."
Mia stared long at Leon, who she considered a brother, teary-eyed. She wrapped her arms around him and kissed him softly on the cheek before leaving the hospital for the car.
