The Watcher Series Vol. 3
“I want to know you, Gabriel. All of you…even the not so shiny parts,” I said.
“I’ll show you my not so shiny parts if you show me yours,” he grinned almost boyishly.
“Oh jeez,” I snorted. “You’re such a brat!” Giggling, I pulled him closer and talked into his shoulder. “Tomorrow night, let’s just have a normal stay at home date. No heavy talk, no talk of our pasts. Let’s rent a movie, order in, and relax. I think we could both use that.”
“Sounds like heaven,” he replied with a sigh. He kissed me on the forehead and made sure I got into my apartment and locked the door. Once inside I flipped on the light and leaned my back against the door. I took a deep breath and looked around my new place. That’s when I noticed something on my dining room table. It looked to be a figurine of some sort. I wondered if Ryan had stopped by at some point and was still trying to butter me up. I walked over to the table to get a closer look and a scream caught in my throat.
