|Spirit of the Knight|
At that moment, he had an overwhelming desire to make her acquaintance and ask the questions that plagued him. Yet, caution warned that she might flee the castle altogether if he manifested his form. Such happened often enough through the endless days following his death. But then again, that had been his objective with all uninvited guests. Though he could find no logical reason to support the need, he found he didn’t want this particular woman to go, at least not yet.
Still, those nagging questions needed answering, did they not? Just as he moved toward her, the annoying sound of her phone chirped once again. She extracted the thing from her pocket and made her way to the window. This time she focused her attention on the brilliance of the night sky. Starlight glistened through the lingering storm clouds and bathed her face with its radiance. In response, the desire to make her acquaintance strengthened and for a brief moment, he wavered.
The incoming call made the final decision for him. He would wait for a better time to show himself. Yet, despite that decision, Cailen continued the journey to her side. He placed both arms on either side of her body, and rested his hands against the casement, thus temporarily holding her captive. Before she opened her mouth to speak, he dropped
his head close to her ear and whispered, “Another time,then, Murriah.”
Her incredulous expression as she whirled around and just collided with his chest almost made him laugh. Probably would have if not for the fact she fixed her gaze exactly with his. She couldn’t see him for he hadn’t revealed himself. Yet, it truly seemed otherwise,
and given the chance, he could quite easily lose himself in those eyes of hers. Just as he prepared to speak aloud, she found her wits and answered her phone. He conjured a disappointed sigh and left her to her conversation.
SO… just out of curiosity, would you be afraid if the ghost of a handsome knight, begged to make your acquaintance?
