The Eyes Of A Fetch (Excerpt 439) We Are Here
The drive to the cottage is quiet and calm. Lyla has fallen asleep on the way and does not awaken until the car stops. Silently, Crispin sits with her until she begins to stir and realize where she is. Slowly she raises her head and looks around somewhat confused as to her whereabouts.
“We are here,” he says softly as he runs his fingers along her jaw line. This causes her to look up at him and she sees that little spark in his eyes that she has grown more accustomed to of late. She does not say a word as she watches him. “You are safe now.” He says as he takes the key out of the ignition. “Let’s get you two inside.” Smokey meows from her crate when Crispin opens the door and steps out of the car. The lights shine on him as he walks around the front of the vehicle to Lyla’s door. “My love.” He says as he extends his hand to assist her with exiting the car.
She replies with a smile as she stands up. Crispin opens the back door and lifts the crate out receiving another nervous meow from the cat. With one arm around Lyla and the other holding Smokey in her travel crate, they walk up the stone path to the cottage.
