I push my love away from the window, then I felt it a bullet piercing my flesh leaving a trail of a trickle of blood. I saw the look of horror mix with regret on my love face. she pulls me with her arm as she falls causing me to fell on top of her but I managed to place both my hand beside her head stopping me from slamming my body into her.Bookmark here

The pain of my wound course through my body and its center is my shoulder, I check my shoulder a tingle of pain can felt I look at it I can see it the bullet wound pierce my shoulder.Bookmark here

She came back later bringing a white color box with a red cross on it. she knees in front of me and holding a scissor she cut the tape off of her hands and start cutting my shirt off.Bookmark here

There a moment of silence, it was unbearable for me so I offer.Bookmark here

"so do you want that Donut I offer you earlier?"Bookmark here

she laughs slightly "Yes, please"Bookmark here

"well, you better wash your face and hand. they are cover with my blood"Bookmark here

After a while she comes back, her face is clean and I can see her eyes are slightly reddened, is it because she was crying. she sits right next to me placing a bottle of water next to my leg. I can feel her body warmth beside me, it felt comforting to have in this cold Dark bank.Bookmark here

After a few minutes, she still here watching me helping me when I need to drink or something, why is she here? she is free to go why is she still here, is it she love me too or something else.
I remembered an article on the internet about Stockholm syndrome, a situation that causes hostage to have trust and feeling toward their captors.Bookmark here

I don't want her to become like that, I don't want to force my feeling too, should I tell her what happens but I don't want her to leave me, maybe for this night, I could just pretend that she loves me too.Bookmark here

my thought was interrupted as she asks me a question.Bookmark here

"so why did you try to rob the banks?"Bookmark here

"you want to know? it a long story".Bookmark here

"I got nothing to do anyway" the look curious is on her face compel me to tell her.Bookmark here

"When I was a kid, my mother gets in a car crash on the way home from work it took my mother lives, it causes my Father to become depressed so he starts to do thing that would make him forgot about my mom, first he starts drinking it gets worse as the time goes by as alcohol became losing effect then he moves on to drugs until he has no money which causes him to loan a lot of money from a loan shark"Bookmark here

"What happens afterward?"Bookmark here

"My father died of drug abuse and the loan shark still want their money so they track me and threw me into the wall which causes my wall to break and punch my eye which explains the black eye I have"Bookmark here

"you have a shitty father"Bookmark here

"He not the worse father I had but he is the only father I had, I remember every time it's my birthday he would buy me a cake, he never once forgets."Bookmark here

"but it still no excuse for leaving you with a debt that you have to rob a bank to pay"Bookmark here

"It, not his fault, some people came back but he came back but only his half is there"Bookmark here

"why are you not mad at him?"Bookmark here

"it because I never the type to become angry'

"that a lied you just yell at me earlier"Bookmark here

"yeah it's my first time, watching you almost getting hurt to make me feel uneasy and painful"Bookmark here
