The Eyes Of A Fetch (Excerpt 407) Take Charge
Marcus tips his head down as he lets his eyes scour the room of its occupants. He looks like a paranoid and frightened man as his gaze slowly moves from one side of the room to the other.
“He’s not here, Marcus.” Says Lyla. “He left to take care of a few things. I’m not sure when he will be back but he just left this morning.” Lyla watches as Marcus looks again in the direction of the restroom. “Do you want me to go check on her?” She can tell he is worried about Destry. “Oh never mind, here she comes.”
Destry rejoins them at the table and it is obvious she has been crying. The sun is about to set and they decide to go their separate ways for the night. Lyla walks with Marcus and Destry to the art shop where they hug and say goodnight. She then begins her stroll around the corner and down the street to her house.
It is now at this quiet time, while alone in her own thoughts that she remembers how she left things at the house. Was someone or something peeking out at her from her own bedroom window? Will she fear this place forever? Is she ever going to feel like this is home? She almost turns around and asks if she can spend the night at the shop but stops herself.
“Come on, you’ve got to take charge here.” She says as she tries to convince herself things will be okay.
