The Rose Petal Thief

The smell of flowers drifted through Anthony’s muddled consciousness as strong hands nudged and shook him awake. He blinked, confused, but forced a smile.

“Hey, what’s up?” He slurred.

Wide, green eyes greeted him.

“There’s … someone out there.”


“In the living room; I heard a noise.”

Anthony glanced at the clock. He’d been asleep for an hour at most; it was barely midnight. He caressed the concerned face in front of him and tried not to get annoyed. He didn’t say the first thing on his mind:  that tonight had been a mistake. Bringing someone home, even someone he’d dated a few times, was … complicated. He hoped his date wasn’t one of those “needy” sorts, always jumping at shadows.

“Shh, Karl; I’m sure it’s just Max ... my roommate.”
