I’m Watching You by Karen Rose

“You’re not the only one who’s nervous here, Kristen.”

She looked up at him over her shoulder.  His face was stark, almost grim.  “Why?” It came out a whisper and his hands stilled, and for a moment he said nothing.

Then he whispered back, “Because you say you have no family when your father is still alive, and you say you studied art in Florence, but I don’t see anything in this house that you’ve painted.  Because you said that victims never, ever forget.  Because someone hurt you, and I’m terrified I’ll do something to make you think I’d hurt you, too. Because I won’t.”
