Late at night, as usual Leslie went to her early bed routine. This is my cue so I moved silently as a cat and tiptoed across the room towards the door. At first, I wasn't used to this sneaking out thing but after some time, I got pretty good at being a ninja. Yeah, things I do for my obnoxious nocturnal "husband".

"You're quicker than before honey" Nikolas greeted me also noticing my newfound talent. His eyes are so slanted that it disappears every time he beams at me. Oddly, he was waiting for me in the lobby of our building, casually resting his body on the sofa. In there, he looked lost. Like something that isn't supposed to be there.
