They were all relieved when they managed to get Texas on their side. Now they actually had a fighting chance of winning the war against the Patriots. Rachel made her way over to Miles. She noticed that Miles and her father were talking, and that her father was happy. Miles notices the blonde's presence and speaks first.
"So, your daughter just gave me her blessing." He stated. She looked at him in amusement with a raised eyebrow. They didn't exactly hide how they felt about each other.
"Well, that's a start." She chuckled. Rachel looked into the tent that they were standing next to. When she saw that it was vacant, she pulled Miles into it with her. His lips were on hers before she had time to say anything else. Their make out session came to an end when they saw a shadow coming around the corner. They stood there silently hoping no one would walk in on them. Fortunately the person went into another tent. Rachel walked out of the tent first. Charlie had emerged from the tent next to the one that she and Miles were in.
"Has anyone seen Monroe or Connor?" Charlie asked. Rachel shook her head.
"Don't worry, they'll be back soon. Do you really think Bass is going to miss out on taking down the Patriots?" Miles stated startling both women. Charlie laughed, knowing that Miles was right. Rachel rolled her eyes at hearing this. The only person Rachel didn't mind sharing Miles with was her daughter. Miles has been like a father to her these past few months and still continues to do so. Sebastian Monroe on the other hand kept Miles away from her for his own selfish reasons.
"We'll need them to help out with the battles." Charlie replied. She knew that they would be better off if they had more people. "You did say now that we have Texas on our side we could get rid of the Patriots by summer." She added.
"I did." Miles assured them. Gene sees the three of them talking and heads over to them. "As I promised your father, we will start in Willoughby." Miles added acknowledging Gene's presence.
"I really do appreciate it." The older man replied as he shook Miles' hand. Seeing the two of them get along put Rachel at ease.
"I will also help fix any damage done to your house." Miles insisted. The doctor wasn't about to turn down help. Charlie nodded in agreement.
"I will help in any way that I can." Charlie stated.
"Me too." Rachel added.
"Alright, let's round up our guys some allies and head to Willoughby." Gene suggested as he walked off to start gathering the others. Charlie left to go do the same thing, leaving Miles and Rachel alone.
"I see you are trying to get in my father's good graces." Rachel laughed. Miles nodded.
"I am. That's not the only reason I am doing this though. It is an added bonus." He explained.
"Really, what's your other reason?" The blonde asked confused as to what he meant by this. Miles knew that he loved her and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. He feels bad for all of the things that happened in the past, and knows that he cannot change it. Rachel came back into his life, and he saw this as a sign. He let her go once, and he wasn't going to make that same mistake again.
"Well you see, when we were staying in Willoughby I kind of started to like it over there." Miles answered truthfully. Rachel knew where Miles was about to go with this, or she thought she knew.
"I thought you hated Texas." She teased. He looked at her and shrugged.
"I don't care where I live now. As long as it is safe and I have you and Charlie it doesn't matter where I live." Miles confessed. This took Rachel by surprise. "Also, you and Charlie are the only family your father has left." He added. Rachel was touched by her lover's words. Thanks to Miles, she had reconnected and grown closer to her father since coming back home after the incident at the tower. She had overheard him thanking Miles for bringing her back, but she also heard her father tell him that he was not good for her. Rachel was glad that Miles and her father were making progress.
"I'm tired of running." Miles admitted. This made Rachel smile. Miles was glad to see her happy again.
"Are you saying you want to settle down?" She asked. The blonde welcomed the idea of them living in Willoughby, having actual jobs that didn't involve killing, and being close to her family.
"Something like that." Miles replied. Before he could say anything else, Rachel pulled him into a passionate kiss not caring who saw them. They had a long way to go before any of this could happen. Preventing a war between Texas and California was just the beginning. Defeating the Patriots was the next step in their plan.
