Somewhere in time I will find you and haunt you againLike the wind sweeps the earth
The woman had grabbed his attention again, and he turned to look at her with his blue eyes. "Yes?"
He asked and she then said she needed help finding the tavern, "The only tavern here is Juniper Bar, I'll take you there."
He said as he stepped out into the rain again, "This way ma'am."
The officer said as he began to walk through the rain and toward the bar she was wanting to go to. Now, it was a ways away, so they would have time to talk. Unfortunately, since Malachi was in his 'work-mode' he would probably not be that talkative, but if she started a conversation, he would politely respond.
His foot-steps tapped lightly in the rain, and moved through a puddle. The officer looked to make sure she was following as he continued. Poor Malachi had no idea of her real reasons why she asked where the tavern was, to talk to him. He had no idea that she was attracted to him, and even if he knew, he would still refrain from trying to flirt with her. He was on duty, and flirting with a lady would look bad. If he were not on duty, it would be a different story altogether. Malachi had a reputation to uphold. The role of law enforcement was sometimes looked down upon and held in a suspicious light enough, he did not want to do anything to make it appear as though he were doing something that could be unjust, such as flirting with a lady to let her off of something she had done.
((Yeah, I tolerated the new Nightwish singer for "Dark Passion Play" but Imaginarium, I heard a song from that and realized they have now started to sound like "everyone else in mainstream music" but I love some of Tarja's singles. I agree though, these bands are heart-breaking D=))
