The Apartment #240

by

Daniel was aware he'd reassumed conflict-mode: his eyes darted around the room, his ears strained to identify every sound.
His palms ached for the feel of muzzle and trigger.
When the ball of colour assumed human shape, the room washed him with tranquility.
Whatever was happening, he was ready! To react. To counter; protect; above all, to survive.
Peace bathed his skin.
He put his hand on Maya's head as she hugged the child.
Soft serenity rippled through him.
He saw Timmy, saw trust beneath his tears. And from somewhere deep within him, trust and tears suffused Daniel's world.

    Sorry it's been so long since the last Apartment, it's been a bit hectic recently!

    That's okay. It was worth the wait. Marvelous.

    Thanks, Christopher, I appreciate that. Hopefully have more time from now on (for a few weeks at least). :)
