I was hard to not say yes to her when she pulled the puppy eyes on me. I had always been a suck for that look. After the organization had taken her I had put the TV away because it just made me remember how we spent out days watching TV together that was our thing. And with her not in my life it wasn’t the same.
Walking out after I gathered everything I felt a smile touch my lips as I walked in the living room. She was curled up in a ball sleeping.
Sighing softly I put the TV down and grabbed the small blanket that covered the love seat and covered her up. Tucking her in gently I picked up her feet and wrapped the blanket around her I smiled and pushed the hair out of her face. Her soft auburn hair silk soft to the touch.
‘You know you always looked adorable when you sleep’ I whispered softly as she rolled onto her back and gave a small yawn.
I missed this, being able to watch over her this way. Walking out of the room I turned the lights off and went outside to take a look around. Glancing up at the sky as grey clouds rolled in the winds blew tearing at the trees as branches swayed to the wind and leaves went scattering as they were ripped off.
Walking back towards home I got there just as the rain came pelting down. Sighing as I took off my coat and hung it up and went into my room. Stripping out of my shirt and pants I got into bed and stretched out resting my head on my arms and looked up at the ceiling.
She remembered me, she finally knew about me. I knew I could keep her safe this time. I knew if I helped train her she alone could protect her self. But I would always be there in the back ground watching over her to protect her when she couldn’t protect herself as I have been doing for years.
The winds howled outside, but in here it sounded like a tornado. Glancing at the clock I only then realized how time could fly by. Groaning I rolled over onto my stomach and closed my eyes. I hadn’t gotten much sleep the other night and I needed to catch up on some much needed sleep.
As I drifted off into sleep I slipped into Faiths dream. Facing her I watched her laughing and smiling her soft blue eyes sparkling with delight.
‘oh’ she exclaimed as she focused on me. ‘I didn’t know you were here’ she stands there hands clasped in front of her, the baby blue dress she wore blew in the gentle breeze looking around I immediately realized were we were. We were in the meadow I use to take her to, just before her abduction that is.
‘do you know were we are?’ I asked gently as I walked towards her. The wild rose bush near the edge of the woods in full bloom as it showed off its exotic red flowers.
‘No? were are we?’ she looked around curiously.
As she turned her back to me I came up behind her and put my arms around her waist. ‘I use to bring you here all the time, that rose bush you see over there. That’s the exact same rose that I left in your lunch box with the very first note’ I smiled as I inhaled deeply. Her sweet scent filling my lungs.
Feeling her tremble as my breath brushed against her neck. ‘o my’ she whispered.
‘we always came here, at least twice a week, this was your favorite spot’ I added.
‘can-can you tell me about myself? What was I like?’ she asked as she turned in my arms and faced me.
Gulping I let her go and took a step back. ‘I don’t know were to start.’
‘anywhere’ walking away from her I shake my head.
‘its not as easy as you thing Faith.’ I glanced at her and smiled weakly. ‘you have a complicated past’
