Alex looked down at Lost, kneeling so sweetly in front of her. His eyes stared intently at her, searching her face for any hint of what was to come. She brushed the hair from his face, taking care not to touch his skin as she looked from his blue eye to his purple eye.
“You know, sweetness…” She took care not to smile, fighting her urge to shower her adorable pet with affection. But she had a goal, something she wanted to see, and she was determined to meet it this time. “I’ve been thinking lately, about your old owner.”
Lost’s eyes widened, anxiety crept into the soft lines of his face and his lips twitched in a moment of fear. He didn’t speak, he didn’t breathe, he didn’t dare interrupt her despite the memories flooding back to him.
Alex sighed and knelt in front of him, setting her grey eyes level with his to watch him closely. “I think I understand now, why he gave you up. At first I was confused,” she traced his jaw with her finger and lifted his chin to force his gaze to stay on hers. “I couldn’t understand why he would be so willing to give away such a pretty thing like you.”
