Hitting the floor fast and hard woke Dom from his slumber.

"What the hell?" he mumbled.

"Now that's what I was going to say," he heard Letty's angry voice.

The confusion quickly cleared Dom's mind once he realized his petite girlfriend had pushed him out of her bed.

"It's rude to just climb into someone's bed without permission," she snapped at him.

"It's also rude to wake them up that way," he growled.

Without saying a word, she stepped over him and exited her room. She stormed downstairs to find Vince and Jesse cleaning up the living room. She picked up a trash bag and began to help them.

"Where's Mia?" She asked them.

"Outside," Vince Laughed.

"How's that funny?" she asked.

"Go look," Jesse snickered.

Placing the trash bag down, she walked outside to find Leon handcuffed to the streetlight in front of the house, in his underwear.

"Okay Mia," Leon shouted, "I'm sorry for hiding your car on you."

"And," Mia said.

"And for emptying the gas tank," Leon growled through his teeth.

"Good," Mia smiled at him, "now apologize to my car."

"What?" Leon gasped in disbelief of the question he just heard.

"You should have known better than to mess with a Toretto's car Leon," Letty laughed, before heading back inside.

"Apologize to my car!" She said dead serious, "Who knows what could have happened to him during your little prank,"

"Him?" Leon asked, chuckling a little, "Mia cars are her's," he corrected her.

"No it's a him!" she told him, "Now apologize."

"Fine," he sighed, and looked at her car "sorry,"

A smile of satisfaction gleamed on Mia's face. She walked over to him and unlocked the handcuffs.

"I'm going to pay for this big time aren't I?" she asked, as the reality set in to the payback she was probably about to receive.

"That depends if you accept my offer or not," Leon said to her.

"What offer?" Mia's interest had suddenly become intrigued.

"Okay this prank war has been going on forever, and it's getting kind of old," he told her.

"You want to call a truce?" Mia asked slightly confused.

"Sort of," He shot her cunning smile, which only confused Mia more.

"What do you mean sort of? Either we call one or we don't," She told him.

"We call one between each other, but I have recently realized that there are four other people that live in this house,"

"I recognize that scheming look," Mia said "and I'm in."

"Nice," he smiled at her.

"You're still outside in your underwear," Mia stated.

Leon dashed into the house. Letty, Vince and Jesse all let out whistles as he passed them while Mia came inside laughing.

"You know he's gunna make you pay for that right?" Jesse asked Mia.

"Perhaps," She replied with a sly smile as she picked up her keys.

"Where are you going?" Vince asked her.

"Shopping! Want to come?" She laughed, already knowing his answer.

"Unless it's for car parts, NO," he said.

Mia and Letty laughed at his response but the smiles quickly faded when they saw Dom stomping down the stairs. Just the sight of him was making Letty's frustration grow. He was up to something, and the fact that he was keeping it from her was really starting to piss her off. She couldn't help but think he was only keeping her out of it because they were now together. If this is how he was planning to treat her from now on, she wasn't having it.

"I need to tell you guys something," Dom said focusing his attention on Mia and Letty.

"Finally," Letty sighed, releasing the trash bag from her hand.

"Stay away from Johnny," he told them, with authority and dominance coating each word.

"Why would we go near him?" Mia asked.

"If he approaches you, or if you see him don't do anything just get away," Dom told her.

"Will you and Vince make sure to stick by us at all times to protect us?" Letty asked sarcastically.

"I know you can take care of yourself but he's sick. Who know's what he would do," Dom tried to reason with Letty.

"Why should we even worry?" Mia asked him, her irritation was beginning to grow.

"Yeah Dom, is there some reason Johnny is coming after us?" Letty's attitude was getting worse by the second. Vince could tell she was nearing the point of scary rage and decided to help Dom out with the situation.

"He didn't need much of a reason to run Mia off the road," Vince said.

"And what's his reason this time?" Mia asked curiously, but not expecting to get an answer.

"Don't bother! I have already tried. They're not saying anything," Letty rolled her eyes.

Dom let out a sigh, "Will you guys promise to stay away from him?" he asked.

"Did you keep your promise to me?" Mia asked, remembering that just last night he reassured her he was staying away from Johnny.

"Yes I did," Dom told her.

Mia shot Dom a disbelieving look, and walked out of the house. She wasn't mad at her brother, she secretly was glad he was going to make Johnny pay for what he did to her. Fear is what was overcoming her. Dom's temper was a force to be reckoned with, and no good could come from it.

"Should we be expecting a visit from the police anytime soon?" Letty asked.

"No," Vince told her.

"So I shouldn't expect to see you in handcuffs then?" She asked Dom.

"Not unless you're the one putting them on," Jesse laughed for a brief moment before Letty slapped him upside the head. Vince slapped him upside the head next; he didn't want to hear those comments.

"Leon would have thought it was funny," Jesse mumbled, rubbing his head.

"I'm going to take a shower," Letty said as she viciously glared at Dom before stomping up the stairs.

"Will you just tell her something to calm her mood?" Vince asked Dom.

"Yeah man, an angry Letty isn't the best roommate," Jesse stated the obvious.

"I don't want her involved," Dom told them.

"So just tell her something," Vince said.

"Like what?" Dom asked.

"I don't know make something up," Vince told him.

"I can't lie to Letty," Dom said.

"Is that supposed to convince me that this thing with you and Let is serious?" Vince asked.

"I don't need to convince anyone of anything," Dom told him, "I'm just stating a fact, I physically can't lie to her. I won't tell her where we went and I'm not feeding her some bullshit lie either."

"She's gunna stay pissed if you don't tell her," Jesse said, once again stating the obvious.

"Don't I know it," Dom said, "But I'm not involving her in this. She is safer staying out of it. That goes for Mia too."

Grabbing his keys Dom headed for the front door.

"Where are you going?" Vince asked, a little pissed that everyone seemed to be bailing on the post party clean up.

"Garage," He sad

"On a Sunday?" A shocked Jesse asked. They were all crazy about cars but Sunday was the one day that didn't revolve around them.

"Yep," Dom called as he left the house.

"We're closed," Dom called out as he heard someone entering the garage. He looked over to the person and was shocked at who he saw.

"I thought you were mad at me," He said.

"I am," Letty sighed, taking a seat on the couch, "I just don't want to fight anymore."

"Me either," Dom replied dropping what he was doing to go sit beside her.

"So just tell me," She asked softly, turning her head to make eye contact with him.

"LETTY," Dom was staring to get frustrated by this situation. Her constant interrogating was beginning to wear him out.

"I need to know so I can help you," Her attitude from this morning had disappeared. It was still stern but much softer.

"You want to help me?" he asked leaning his forehead to meet hers. She just nodded in response.

"Stay away from Tran," he told her.

"Why?" She pushed him away, "What did you do?"

"Nothing for you to get involved in," he said.

"I thought we were all a team and we handled things together," her voice was getting sterner with him, but still remained soft. Only Letty could sound so dominate and delicate at the same time.

"We do, but not this. Johnny is a loose cannon," Dom needed to keep explaining to her why he couldn't tell her. On the other hand, maybe he just needed to keep reminding himself.

"And your not?" she bluntly asked, with her eyebrows raised.

He remained silent, as did she. With each passing second the frustration growing inside her climbed to the surface.

"This is stupid," she yelled, "You are being stupid the only reason you won't tell me is because were together now,"

"Sorry for caring about you," he defended his actions.

"Didn't you before?" She questioned, knowing very well he did.

"Things are different now," He told her.

"Your right they are. You and I are our own team now. This is a partnership. Whatever effects you effects me," For the first time Letty had told him what she expected out of their new relationship.

"I'm just trying to protect you," He told her.

"Well stop," she demanded.

"I can't help it. I have been doing it for as long as I can remember. I know things have changed between us but you're still that girl to me. The on I always had to look out for." Dom said.

Letty's mood calmed a bit, she knew he was well intentioned; however his overprotective actions were on her last nerve.

"Well you obviously didn't know her very well, because she was tough and self reliant. She didn't need protecting and neither do I." She told him.

Dom just sat in silence; he knew everything she was saying was true. He really didn't need to protect her, but how could he not? How could you love someone and put them in harms way.

"And whether you like it or not I'm already involved. And so is Mia," she bluntly told him.

"Fine you really want to know?" Dom said. He figured if she wanted to be involved she'd make a better asset than a pissed off girlfriend.

"No I have just been bugging you about it for the Hell of it," her sarcastic tone said.

"Alright I'll tell you," Dom said.
