End Of Watch – Chapter Twelve

Holly steadied herself, straightened her shoulders and headed straight for Bobby.  No man had ever before captured her attention the way he did.  For her, it was like that classic song, “Just one look.”  Yep.  “Just one look. That’s all it took.”

Without a moments’ hesitation, she walked up to him, looked him in the eye and said “yes.”

Bobby looked at her with a combination of “who the hell are you and what the hell are you talking about?” and said “yes, what?”

Holly said “yes, I’ll marry you.”

Bobby did one of the familiar drink spits when he laughed and said “I didn’t ask.” Holly turned, smiled and said “ah, but you will.”

As she made her way back to Nedward’s side, he noticed that Bobby never took his eyes off of her.  She didn’t have to say anything.  He was a seasoned body language expert and he knew instant attraction when he saw it.

After a few minutes he said “so, what about your plans?”  Holly stared straight at Bobby and said “what plans?”

Nedward said “you told me that you had plans to be a Captain one day.” Holly, still captivated by Bobby, cavalierly laughed and said “oh, that.”

Nedward said “yes that.”  Holly said “I might have to put that on the back burner for a while.”

Nedward looked her square in the face and said “you know what he does.  It’s a dangerous job and you are going to constantly worry.  You’ll have to make sure that it doesn’t affect your ability to do your own job.”

Holly said “I understand.”

Nedward’s voice changed when he said “I’m not sure you do.  There will be long stretches of time when you won’t see him and you won’t know where he is.  There will be times when he will be the central character in a dangerous drug deal.  There will be interaction with other women.  Are you really prepared to have that kind of life?”

Holly, with a deadpan face said “you’re right.  He needs to quit.”
