“You should keep your cat inside, Charlie. Lots of dangerous things that go bump in the night around here.” Aidan lifted my chin with his finger so we were eye to eye. “Clear?” I nodded, and he stepped back and handed me the twig. “Have a nice day.”
My car seemed to be the place to remain when I encountered these dangerous and strange men, because I stayed right where I was, pressed into the passenger door, for a solid five minutes after he walked away.
Phew. Charlie finally got out of that one alive. lol
