Silence Isn’t Always Golden
I wake up and find the loft in complete darkness, so I know that Blair isn’t home yet. Wait a minute; I hear his breathing, so he is home. I wonder what time it is. I glance at the clock and see that it’s only 1:00 a.m. and wish I knew why he was home already.
I try and relax and listen to Blair’s breathing and hear him mumbling. He just said he has to move. Why would he have to move? I’m a Sentinel and I still can’t understand his sleepy mumbling.
I’ll sneak downstairs and see if I can hear him better there. He’s not going to move and that’s all there is to it.
I lean on the doorway outside of his room and listen for his words. I hear them all, but I can’t believe it. Blair is in love with me. Why didn’t he say anything sooner? Why didn’t I know?
Will I get my chance now? I’ll let him sleep and talk to him in the morning. I need to think about what I will say. All I know is, silence has been in this loft for too long and it’s not going to stay. Tomorrow, we talk.
I’m in love. I think he is too. I can sleep now.
