Here's what I have been working on today - from Chapter 8
After a good five minutes worth of driving in silence Elliot starts laughing, “I can’t believe you kneed that guy in the crotch.”
I chuckle a little as I look out the window and think of the look in his face as he went down, “Well, he shouldn’t have been so grabby with me.”
“Hey, I don’t blame you, my fist really wanted to have a conversation with his face after watching the way he was treating you,” he says bluntly.
I look over at him, studying his profile as he stares ahead stoically, “Where you going to rescue me Elliot?” I ask.
He looks at me and smiles, “I don’t know what I was going to do really, I just didn’t like the way he was touching you.”
We lock eyes for a moment, quietly regarding each other. I’m not sure how I feel about this man being protective of me. I’ve been on my own and fought for myself for so long now. The thought of someone else willing to do it for me… well…it feels kind of… nice.
