"After we regained our senses, it took us an hour to get the blindfolds off. They took my gun, badge and Jenna's purse. Fortunately for us they neglected to take my phone so I dialed 911. The police traced the call and sent officers, but they were ambushed when they arrived and were pinned down in the alley. Jenna was freaked out by the gunfire and was screaming like a crazy person."
"The officers called for reinforcements and in the meantime, I tinkered with the A/C vent to see if I could crawl out and free Jenna. Once up there I saw that it was barely wide enough to crawl through...dang near got stuck a couple times. I came out in a hallway about the time that SWAT arrived. Nothing like the FBI being rescued by SWAT."
"They thought I was one of the mob at first since they had taken my gun and badge. After we got that cleared up, we were questioned, and the henchmen were carted off to await their attorneys. Did I mention my head is still throbbing?"
"Well," said Charlie, "you lived to see another day."
"You know what they say...there's got to be a morning after," Alex quipped.
"So, are you going to see her again?" grinned Charlie.
