Chapter 37 Realization
- I say my farewells to both the ladies and head back to Annie. By now she should be awake considering it's nearing one in the afternoon. I definitely put her the proverbial wringer yesterday, but she shouldn't still be sleeping. I nod to the guards protecting her. After she left I made sure to handpick the best people to watch over when I was unable to. I meant what I said. It's dangerous, and I can count the number of people I trust inside this palace on one hand so I want to be sure she's safe at all costs--even when I'm not with her.
- I enter the suite and hear the sound of some catchy 80s pop song and the melodic voice I've come to love singing right along to it. Annie's in the kitchen area, wearing my dress shirt, singing and dancing as she cooks a grilled cheese on the stove. Oh, and did I mention she isn't wearing any pants?
