Blye, S Part 1. Chapter Two: My Godfather and his girlfriend
I reached Los Angeles at half 3 US time, to find my godfather's grey SUV parked close to the airport. His girlfriend got out to help me place my cases in the boot, before helping me into the car.
"Does your cousin know your here?" He asked, turning face me in his seat.
I shook my head; Sam was my cousin, he was almost like my brother considering we'd grown up together.
"So your telling me that Sam doesnt know your here?" He said again, his voice getting firmer making me jump slightly.
"No" I said, quietly.
"Just leave her hon, she obviosly doesnt want to talk about it right now" His girlfriend said, giving me a warm smile.
My godfather sighed, before turning on the engine and reversing to go his place of work.
"What do you do for a living then sweetie?" She asked.
"I'm a DI, in London. My work is one of the reasons I'm out here in the US" I told her.
"You got a partner then?"
"Three, one's a sargent, one is a Constable and the other is DI like me"
"Are they going to be flying out?" My godfather asked, looking through the rear mirror.
"Yeah. Jerry, Henry and Sam are flying out tomrrow" I said, pulling out my book knowing that it was going to be a long journey.
"What you reading?" She noticed.
I smiled and handed her the book.
"The Time Traveler's Wife eh?"
"It was my Mum's" I said, sadly taking off my locket and holding it in my hand.
"She passed away?" She said, handing me my book back.
"No, no. I just havnt seen her in 6 years" I said, histantly taking the book back.
We reached their place of work, I got out to recive a text from Jerry.
Hey Kiddo, change of plan. Me and Sam are flying out tomrrow, Henry is flying out tonight. J x
"Helloo? Anyone in?" He said.
We all looked around, someone jumped down the last three stairs.
"Ah trust you to terrify us Deeks?" He said, staring at the tall, shaggy blonde haired bloke.
Deeks smiled, giving me a little wink causing me to let out a small nervous laugh.
"And you are?" He said, stepping forward.
"Sasha" I said, holding my hand out for him; he took it and shook it.
I nodded, watching my godfather and his girlfriend go up to their techno station leaving me to talk with Deeks.
"So what part of England do you come from?" He asked, guding me over to his desk.
"London, Hackney" I said, as he sat down in his black chair and I sat on the edge of his desk.
"I've been there with Kensi, to see her Uncle" He told me.
He knew Kensi?
"You know her?" I asked, my eyes shooting out of their sockets.
"Yeah, she's my partner. And speak of the beautiful woman" He said, pointing to her.
I turned, she was taller and slimmer than I expected, she had the same coloured eyes as someone dear to me as was she the spit of someone I held close.
"Hi there squirt, where'd you come from?" She asked.
"I'm Sasha, I'm here on buisness from England" I smiled.
"Do you have anywhere to stay?" Kensi asked as we sat down with our drinks at a table in the local club.
I took a sip of my Coke-a-Cola. "Nope"
"Really? You could crash at mine if you want" She said, taking a huge sip of her beer.
"Honestly? You'd be wanting to look after a hormonal 15 year old for three months?" I said, disbelivingly.
"To be honest sweetheart, I don't mind. Just warn me when your going through hell yeah?" She said, putting an supportive arm over my shoulder.
I getting closer to the truth, but somehow I didnt want her to know my true identity just yet.
