Chapter 14

It was 6:30 in the morning when Dom and Alexandra finally made it to the airport, last night was an extremely rough night for Alex since she and Arthur practically broken up. Dom had spent the entire evening with her trying to console her and make her feel better but it didn't help and the only thing she came to a complete decision to is that she needs to take this one day at a time and allow thing to work out the way they should.

As they walked through the airport they finally made it to her gate, waiting for Eames to arrive. As they both sat together watching the other travelers roam the airport Dom then slowly looked over at his sister and gave her a soft smile. "How are you holding up?" He asked as he wrapped his arm around her shoulder and pulled her into a side hug, Alex sighed as she moved a strand of hair behind her ear.

"Honestly I could be better."

She said softly, never bothering to look at him. Dom slowly nodded, knowing how painful this is for his sister. "Do you want me to talk to him?" Alex softly laughed and gently shook her head.

"No… it's better if we just allowed things to happen in their own course."

Dom frowned as he stared over at her; he could feel her pain and knew that she was going through a lot right now. "It's going to be ok Alex; things are going to work out. I know Arthur loves you and the last thing he'd ever want is to let you go." Alex sighed and gently shrugged her shoulders. "I love him too Dom, more than words can describe but he needs to open his heart and show me that he loves me. He can't even tell me those three words and honestly Dom I can't wait forever for him to tell me." Dom gently nodded and placed his hand on her shoulder.

"Well whatever decision you make I will support you every step of the way. Sure I would love to see you and Arthur back together again but I want you to be happy first."

Alex gave her brother a closed mouth smile. "Thank you." Dom smiled back at her and was about to say something until they both heard a familiar voice come from behind them.

"Well, Well! Looks like we're all accounted for!"

Eames grinned as the two siblings looked back over at him. Dom gave him a closed mouth smile as he and Alex rose up from their seats. "It looks like so, Eames while you are on this trip I expect you to keep a close eye on Alex alright?" Eames nodded and then smiled over at Alex.

"No worries mate I'll keep a close eye on her but I highly doubt she'll need much help from me."

Alex smiled over at Eames, however Eames could tell that Alex was still extremely upset after what happened yesterday and knew that he was going to have to make sure that she was going to be able to keep her game up.

Just then, they heard their flight being called over the P.A. system and knew that it was their time to board the flight. Eames sighed and placed his arm around Alex's shoulder. "Well we best be boarding luv, make sure we get in to our seats on time." Alex nodded and then looked over at Dom and gave him a warm hug. "Be safe." She whispered, Dom smiled as he crossed his arms over his chest.

"You too. The both of you."

Eames smiled over at Dom as he squeezed Alex closer to him. "We will mate." The P.A. system announced their flight once again stating it was the last call, Eames and Alex sighed as they said their goodbyes to Dom and headed towards the desk and handed their tickets and boarded the flight leaving Dom completely by himself.


Later that night back in the warehouse Dom came walking up behind Arthur who was engorged with his work. Arthur's head immediately shot up once he heard the glasses Dom was carrying clinking due to the ice. He finally looked behind him as Dom held up the two glasses and the bottle of bourbon. "Care for a drink?" Dom asked, Arthur sighed and nodded his head and gestured for Dom to have a seat.

"So… how are you holding up?"

Dom asked as he sat down and pulled the cork and began to pour the bourbon into the glasses. Arthur shrugged his shoulders as he picked up the glass and began to take a sip. "I've been better… did Alex make it to her flight ok?" Dom nodded as he took a sip out of his. "Yeah, she did." Arthur as well nodded his head and began to look away from him while Dom continued to look his way.

"She was in real bad shape last night and this morning Arthur."

Arthur quickly looked up at him, completely confused. "How bad?" Dom sighed as he leaned back in his seat, resting his arms on the arm rests. "Let's just say that she was in tears all night last night and seemed to be completely numb this morning. I think you two need to mend things up and stop fighting." Arthur shrugged his shoulders as he took another sip out of his drink.

"If you don't recall Dom she was the one who broke it off with me."

Dom arched his brow at Arthur as he leaned back in his seat. "I have a feeling that there was a little more to it than just that." Arthur sighed as he glared over at him. "Alright fine, I had a large part as to why, I really screwed up." Dom smirked at Arthur as he slapped his hand on Arthur's shoulder. "Nah I don't think you screwed up. Do you still love her?" Arthur immediately whipped his head towards Dom who was looking at him innocently. "I… I do." Arthur said softly as he looked away, Dom sighed as he rose up from his seat and grabbed the bottle and began to pour some more bourbon.

"It doesn't sound as convincing anymore Arthur as to when you two first got together. I think you feel like you need to love her because that's all you knew and in reality you don't love her the way you used to."

Arthur then angrily slammed his fist on the table and immediately rose up from his seat giving Dom a very angry, daring stare. "You don't know anything Dom." Arthur said in no more than a whisper.

"I love your sister more than words can describe… I want to marry her, have children with her, have a happy life together but after all that has happened I lost myself when she was gone! I don't want to lose her but the only way for any of this to work is if I let her go and allow her to come back. Trust me Dom the last thing I want is to not have your sister in my life. I love her so much and I screwed up! I screwed up because I can't look her straight in the eyes and tell her that I love her when I really do!"

Dom slowly smiled at and nodded. "I don't think it's over. I still think you have a chance." Arthur scoffed and shook his head. "No it's over, as long as Eames is around her things will never work until I prove to her at least that he's been screwing with her mind even before she was taken from I.D.A." Dom arched his brow at Arthur and placed his hands in his pockets.

"Your still obsessing about that dream she had! Arthur honestly Eames is not trying to mess with her head and how do you honestly plan on proving to her that he would even do such a thing?"

Arthur then smirked and then walked up to his desk and grabbed a bunch of papers that were laying there. "With this!" Dom looked at Arthur in complete confusion. "What's that?" Arthur then smirked at Dom and walked closer to him.

"I've been doing a little bit of research of my own and let's just say that Eames has been a part of I.D.A. for a very long time."

Dom shrugged his shoulders. "And…" Arthur then glared at him.

"And it's proof that he has been messing with Alex this entire time! Dom I did some extreme and extensive research that proves that Eames is not who he says he is! I need to prove this to her Dom, I don't want her to get hurt."

It was Dom's turn to glare at Arthur; he was tired and frustrated and honestly has heard enough of this. His life and the chance to see his children again were his main objection and even though he hated seeing Arthur and Alex apart like this he needed to concentrate on what was really important and that was getting back to his family and with Arthur worrying himself like this was something that didn't need to happen right now.

"Arthur I understand that you are worried about Alex but she's fine, Eames is not going to hurt her and in all honestly I need you to concentrate on this mission! Not distract yourself because of the fact that Eames is now a little competition to you. Alex will make her decision and whether if that is with you or not you'll have to learn to deal with it. I need all your efforts and concentration on this not if Eames has been keeping tabs on Alex. Now after the mission if you want to continue this I will help you but right now I can't worry myself about this."

Arthur suddenly frowned at Dom as he lowered his arm that was holding the papers.

"If I don't have her then what do I have? You remember what happened when you lost Mal, how much it hurt you to know that you couldn't be with her again. Well that's how I feel about Alex if I lose her."

It was Dom's turn to frown as Arthur sighed and ran his finger through his hair.

"If I lose her then I have nothing. I barely was able to live without her and if I lose her again then I don't know…"

Dom allowed out a soft sigh and walked up to Arthur and placed his hand on Arthur's shoulder. "Arthur I know how much you love Alex and I hate seeing you two like this, I know how incredibly hard it is to lose the one person you love more than anything in the world. But if it's any consolation Alex loves you and I don't think that is ever going to change no matter how much Eames tries to get to her. I know my sister and the only person my sister has ever really loved was you. Just allow some time, things will get better I know it will and then you will be happy like you were once again alright?" Arthur sighed and slowly nodded his head.
