Continuing on from last Sunday:

“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

Charlie was climbing a tree in the previous scene to spy on Aidan and his room mate, Phil, after witnessing Phil execute a double murder.

I like his warning too and how he so casually walked away.

Christa Paige said...

What an impression his warning had. Love how her reaction lasted for a while after he left.

Dee Carney said...

Love her reaction of staying right there for five minutes.

Dangerous things that go bump in the night, ah, yes. Love how he hands her the twig.

I'm not sure which direction she should run in; towards him or away!
