It is still relatively early, and as soon as I settle on the couch, boredom sets in.  Normally, this would be when I would call Dez to see if she wanted to come over or go out somewhere.  Ever since she pulled her disappearing act four and a half months ago, I haven’t heard from her at all.  I tried being angry with her at first, but it didn’t last.  I knew why she left, and had I been in the same situation, I probably would have done the same. 

One thing is for sure.  I miss her.  Moments like these are the ones that make me understand just how much I love having her in my life.  Take this one, for instance.  She would laugh at me for allowing the demon to take me down like that.  She would fire some smartass comment at me about being a big, bad vampire with ‘professional assassin’ on my resume, and yet I couldn’t possibly have fallen for a more obvious trap.  Long dark alley, the scent of the demon, but no demon in sight.  Why I kept walking when I should have gone up top for a better view, I’ll never know.  She would be right.  Maybe I am a little more distracted than I was willing to admit.

Well, I give.

Dez being gone is really starting to get to me.  All of autumn, an entire season, has passed without a word, and I start to question whether I made the right choice in leaving her to do her thing.  What if she needs my help?  What if I’m making the wrong assumption that she wants to be left alone?  What if she ends up hating me for not contacting her?  For not following her?  What if she already does?
The questions start to pile up, just like every other night I am left with too much time to think.  Try as I might, no amount of sighing will clear the thoughts overcrowding my head, making it impossible to relax.
