"Lucas?" Erica called. He stopped walking & slowly looked back at her. "Do you want to do something fun? How about the zoo?" She asked. He stared at her. "I think it will be fun, I think we should!" She smiled as she put her hand on his shoulder. She turned him towards the door & they walked out.

"Thanks, for trying." Lucas mumbled as he turned to walk back to his room again. "Lucas..." Erica said as she dropped to her knees beside him & turned him around to face her. He tried to look away. Tears were forming in his eyes & he didn't know how to stop them. Erica pulled him to her tightly & rocked him a little bit. "You're going to be okay, Lucas. I'm not going to let anything happen to you. I will find your father, Lucas, I will." She said firmly.
"Is something wrong?" She asked. He smiled back. "No, I just needed to see you." Her face relaxed into bliss. "Well, it's nice to see you too!" She replied. "What can I do for you?" She asked as if she would like nothing better than to give him anything he wanted. "I want to live with you half the week." She looked confused. "But, your father..." "Is my dad. I need you too." He replied. Erica was speechless. "I want to go to the zoo again." Lucas smiled.
On the trip to the zoo Lucas seemed bored. Erica decided to make it memorable so Erica paid extra & spoke with director. They allowed Lucas VIP access to go behind fences with handlers & touch the animals. "Smile!" Erica laughed as she took pictures of him.
"Did you like going to the zoo?" Erica asked after she had printed the pictures off of her laptop. "Yeah, I like this picture of me with the penguin. Can...I keep it?" Lucas asked. "Of course!" Erica replied with a smile. Lucas took the picture in his hands & smiled at it. "Would you like to go on a picnic with Caleb?" Erica asked. Lucas nodded. "Sure."
The only distraction from his aching muscles and scratched hands was the feeling in his lungs like fire as he tried to get enough oxygen through the mask they made him wear. His head spun with the concentration needed for balance and the effort of translating the English the man was speaking. "A sniper must be prepared to stay in any position for any amount of time," he said, walking in circles around the rock Nikita was precariously balanced on. "Your target will not always be on time," (Keep it clean. I'm the boy)
"Do you like your new jacket?" Erica asked. "Yeah, it reminds me of my dad." Lucas replied genuinely smiling for the first time. "You love your dad, huh Lucas? What's his name?" She asked. Lucas' face drooped. "Tell me, you love him. It will help...I lost my parents too." She smiled crookedly as she rubbed his arm with her hand. He bit his lip & forced a smile. "I miss him, so much."
