I groaned as I woke up to the sound of my phone buzzing next to me. I turned over searching for it, not once opening my eyes.
"Hello?" I said groggily.
"Ah Ms. Fenti! Are you okay?! I heard what happened," an elderly man spoke loudly on the phone.
"Huh?" I stated confusingly.
"I was alerted by the police of what happened last night and I came by to work on your alarm system," he explained. Then I realized it was Jerry the Landlord of the building. Why was he calling?
Then I remembered everything in instant.
How could I forget? The sounds I heard when I got home. Me being scared it was all real. The cops came and got the guy then Joe-
I sat up on the bed quickly and took in my surroundings. I'm in Joe's house. I slept over at my teachers house! Mother of-
"Ms. Fenti?" He spoke taking me out of my thoughts.
"I was saying when will you be available for me to set up the alarm system," he asked.
"Oh um, I will be back in a few hours or so, this afternoon?"
"Alrighty, see you then!" He spoke before hanging up.
I put the phone to my side and laid back down sighing. Just when I thought I had enough problems.
I heard a knock on the door and I sat up and pulled my knees to my chest. The door creaked open and in stepped the man who came to my rescue.
I took in his appearance and noticed he was only wearing sweatpants. I felt my face heat up slightly as I took in his naked torso. His hair was out of its usual bun as locks of it dripped on his shoulders indicating he had just taken a shower.
I could smell his scent from the position I was in and I felt myself get goosebumps at his sudden presence. I forced my self not to look at his glistening chest. I don't think he would appreciate me drooling at his half nakedness.
"Good Morning baby girl," he said in a raspy voice. I noticed how deep his voice was this morning. For the first time this morning, I looked up to his eyes. He stared right back at me as he gave me a gentle smile. I took my bottom lip in between my teeth and nervously took in a breath.
"Good Morning Joe," I said softly.
He stepped in to the room and walked towards me never once looking away. He sat on the foot of the bed and turned to face me. I felt my heart race as I felt the bed dip slightly due to the added weight. The position we were in made me slightly uneasy. Even though he was at the edge of the bed and I was at the head rest, I felt my self become cautious of his every move. I had never been this close to a man in my life and especially not in these circumstances.
"How did you sleep?" he asked me looking a bit worried.
"I slept okay, how about you?"
"Same here," he responded looking me over. I held myself tighter as I noticed that he was staring at me hard. I felt him look over me with his intense gaze and I became self conscious of my early morning appearance.
"Thank you for letting me stay here the night," I spoke up.
"There was no way I was going to leave you alone Robin," he said seriously.
