Someone to Watch Over Me
Devlin, as distraught as he was about his daughter, still caught the tenderness in the other man's voice when he said her name. He didn't know what to make of it... The two men stared at each other for a full minute. Devlin took a deep breath and began again, forcing even more calm into his voice. He knew he needed to be careful. He hadn't had much sleep in the past few days.
Devlin watched her car until it was out of sight down the street and then ran his figners through his hair with a heavy sigh. It certainly wasn't the first time that a woman had, in the course of an investigation, flirted with him. But it was the first time that one had worried him so much.
Not On My Watch
Devlin stared at her for several moments. He wasn't sure what he was angrier about - the fact that she had been ignoring his phone calls or the fact that it bothered him as much as it did. He noticed with a small amount of satisfaction that she managed to hold his gaze only briefly before she looked away. The muscle in his jaw worked as he pulled himself back in control.
He lay there in the darkness for a long time, listening as her breathing steadied and then slowed to sleep, wondering when he would be able to honestly reply that he loved her as well.
