“Well he is your bother, I’m sure him being annoying is natural to you.” Evan spoke as he grinned back at Rowan, however it was high time they got to work before her brother did return and reprimand them for not completing the job. “What room did you want to use? I’ll grab towels, I feel like they will be needed.” Moving through into the kitchen he flicked the light on revealing the extravagant kitchen, regardless of the fact he did not live here we was well versed in the set out because he was often here for some reason. Picking up the kettle he filled it with water before placing it back in its holder to heat up the water. Whilst the kettle was doing its thing Evan moved to a cupboard under the stairs where a lot of spare towels and linen were kept, it was all freshly laundered. If he was honest, he rather enjoyed the smell of the room, but the smell of fresh linen was always pleasant.
Picking up a couple of towels in his hand he went to find Rowan, moving up the stairs he looked for a room with a light on and open door because the shut ones generally meant it was occupied by one of the family members. “Ah!” Smiling as he saw Rowan he moved inside and placed the neatly folded towels on the table, he had brought a couple just in case Damian needed one as well as the new girl. He figured Damian would see her to her room, so this just made it easier. “Right, let’s give you a hand.” Moving to help out with the air mattress and make it into some sort of bed for the girl he started to think on what would happen, “You don’t reckon she’d try to run in the night too? Even with the first failed attempt?” It was futile trying to run, Damian could have her found in an instant with the amount of contacts he had at his disposal but sometimes fear could be powerful with not thinking straight.
Fluffing up the pillows as he placed them down on the air mattress, he looked out the window still seeing the ran pour down, it still shocked him that he had even taken such a deal in the first place. Shaking his head out of his thought he took a step back seeing the mattress now all set up for someone to sleep in, “That will do for now. I’ll be in the kitchen making us drinks, see you in a moment.” Moving back out of the room he headed back into the kitchen knowing full well the kettle had finishing boiling, opening the cupboards he pulled out two cups and started to make them drinks as he heard the front door open.
“Thank you for the offer however I did actually pack some things.” Iris mumbled as she continued to stare out the window at the rain, the heater was doing nothing to warm her up, in fact it was just adding to her discomfort. Perhaps making a break for it in this weather had not been ideal. His sister didn’t seem so bad, she had remembered how she seemed outraged at the idea of this deal which gave her a little bit of comfort. Maybe she could talk to her? Maybe they would get on? It was all strange as it started to sink in that she would never be going home, she would have a new home now.
The feeling of relief washed over her when she had said she would have her own room, if she was honest it had been something, she was scared to ask about but hearing it had helped calm her a little. “Second?” Without even thinking she had questioned what he meant by second but as soon as she said it out loud, she realised how stupid it must have sounded. Of course, he meant someone he could trust, like a second in command and she was certain that most organisations whether crime based or not had something like that in place. “Ah sorry that was a silly question, I think I just need some sleep.”
As the car had stopped, she looked up at the new place, it was grand, and it was clear that this family took pride in their assets. Her own home seemed minuscule compared to this. Eyes glanced towards the lights that were still on and she felt her stomach turn, she wouldn’t have to talk to anyone right? She just wanted to get out of her wet clothes and sleep it off, maybe this was some sort of bad dream and she would wake up to her normal life tomorrow. Stepping out of the car she felt the cold wind surround her as the rain was still pouring. Shuddering as fresh rain plashed against her clothes she followed Damian from getting her bags and to inside his home were she was greeted by warmth.
