Nathan’s heart was beating fast…They called…He looked at Mr. Hammersmith and nodded his head… Northwest mall…next to the coffee shop in one hour…”get everyone ready… “He proclaimed. Mr. Hammersmith walked to the group of the police officers dressed in the plain clothes and exchanged few words. Nathan felt nervous but determined to save Marie…he looked at the group of the men “I hope they are as good as promised…” he thought. Mr. Hammersmith used his connections to mobilize one of the best undercover police units in the area….

They reached the mall in about 15 minutes…everyone took assigned positions, waiting for any sight of Marie or Jim. Nathan was casually sitting in front of the coffee shop, pretending to relax and watch the traffic of people. His throat was dry but he made his breathing deliberately slow …indicating the relax state. Nathan was acutely aware, that it takes only a split second for something to go wrong in the situation like that…He needs to stay calm…he reminded himself…looking at the cup of coffee in his hand but searching the area around him with his peripheral vision…

He checked the watch…they are 10 minutes late…he was beginning to feel nervous… what if they will not show up? What if they know, he is not by himself? He saw from the corner of his eyes the distinctive, almost ethereal walk…he knew so well…It was Marie!! She was walking by herself ….with her hair in a slightly messy condition and the look indicating high concentration. “Nathan …I need the flash drive” she said quickly, focusing her eyes on his face… Nathan reached to his pocket and asked “Is he here?” “Yes …next to the children’s playground” she answered. ”Only one… or more?” he asked “Only him” she said.   “Nathan was holding the drive in his hand…” I am sorry…. I should have trusted you…” she exclaimed…and reached her hand to take the flash drive. “No…I will walk with you…” Nathan said. Marie looked at him with eyes full of tears and shook her head in disagreement….” He said no….or he will shoot my father….I need the drive now….don’t  follow me, please” she exclaimed, grabbed the flash drive out of his hand, turned back and started walking… “Marie…I love you …” Nathan said in one breath… She turned around…and smiled…

Nathan knew he was being watched …he sat down on the bench and watched her walk away… It was probably one of the most difficult things he had ever done…following the plan…against his instinct on jumping in and protecting her right now… The flash drive he handed to her had the tracking device …

Marie was walking back toward Allan …talking to one of the young mothers and pretending to play with her son…She stopped at the slight distance…not sure what to do… Allan put his hand around her in caressing gesture…They look like an ordinary couple… “Let me have it” he said as he extended his hand….”You promised my father will be all right and you will let us go…” Marie said with determination. He squeezed  her hand …” Now …give it to me “ he pushed his gun into the right side of her ribs….Marie took out the flash drive out of her pocket  …he let her go as he reached for it….She kept walking….suddenly realizing he was not next to her….someone screamed and she turned to see Allan on his knees, still holding the drive in his hand and looking at his chest …the red area on his chest was getting larger in every second…he looked at the Marie with a surprise in his eyes and fell to the ground…

Out of nowhere men and women showed up waiving the police badges in their hands….Someone took her aside…She saw Nathan running toward her ….”My father…” she whispered “He is safe….” Nathan assured her.” How? Did you know…” “We were watching you…” he said and hugged her closely… “I am sorry ….have some things, I need to explain to you “Nathan said in a serious tone of the voice…. She smiled and exclaimed….” I think, I figure out some of them….Is it true…what you said there….that you love me…? Nathan nodded and answered “Yes…more than you know…” Marie watched his face for a moment and said “That’s all that matters to me ….”

The Little Prince

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..."

"They don't find it," I answered.

"And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."

"Of course," I answered.

And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."
