He watched her through her window as she looked in the mirror and brushed her hair, knowing that tonight would be the night he would sneak in through her backdoor and they would finally be together. Whether she wanted to or not. copyright protection20PENANAIQSPJNG3L224Please respect copyright.PENANA033V0Zf15n

Every now and then she would turn her eyes in his direction while he spied on her,  but she would quickly turn her eyes back to her own reflection. A smile spread across his face when her eyes would dart up towards his. On some level he believed that she knew he was out there and that was her way of giving him a green light for what he had planned later.copyright protection20PENANAuOdSbjuy8X24Please respect copyright.PENANAdWJhRJg6Km

The past two months had been the best in his life. The past two months had been the most frustrating of his life. He found her while they were in line at Starbucks. She was standing in front of him and she ordered a large house coffee.copyright protection20PENANAp9D9sswYXk24Please respect copyright.PENANAc3rWkjGBpr

He liked that. Nothing fancy. Just the house coffee. Same as him. A girl who liked to get right to the point. Respectable. copyright protection20PENANAN4QB9x90UL24Please respect copyright.PENANAdKPFHaYnMn

She had dark brown hair that smelled like flowers and coconuts. He had inconspicuously leaned in to smell it. It didn't disappoint. She wore a long, burnt orange sweater dress with black leggings and tall brown boots. She had a great sense of style. copyright protection20PENANAlGatevN6lG24Please respect copyright.PENANAwx6mcNxbaj

When the barista handed her the large house coffee, she turned around and nearly bumped into him. An embarrassed smile crept across her face and their eyes met. She had enchanting brown eyes. She didn't wear her makeup too heavy. Again: very respectable. copyright protection20PENANAFzJBQdZAel24Please respect copyright.PENANA6OfcbrZIDa

He walked far enough behind her that she wouldn't be able to realize that he was in pursuit of her. She and her coffee stepped into the Barnes & Noble. He crept in behind her. He walked up and down the rows of books to try and spot her. Finally he did. copyright protection20PENANArw9AKgh3VM24Please respect copyright.PENANAP6vhyCqiCl

There she stood behind the counter, ringing up a customer. Of course she worked in a book store. What else would a high class woman like her do for a living? Of course she was highly literate. All girls as perfect as her were. copyright protection20PENANAStyyDRYEEZ24Please respect copyright.PENANAen7JFFl5YY

When he would spy on her at night he found that she was actually quite a writer. She would spend at least two hours an evening writing on her laptop and another hour reading. copyright protection20PENANAK9ejU11xmn24Please respect copyright.PENANAUHs2r7INdG

She liked to read when she got out of the shower. With a towel wrapped around her. She drank tea while she did it. It was his favorite time of the night. A few times he had tried to see in her bathroom window while she was showering, but there was too much steam for him to see anything. So he settled for waiting until she was out to spy on her loveliness.copyright protection20PENANALM8iyOyBNS24Please respect copyright.PENANApGBSJ20rPd

He had watched her thought the window and followed her every move for the last two months. He wanted so badly to go and speak with her,  but he could never work up the courage. It was the most frustrating thing he had ever experienced. But just being able to see her every night made it the best two months as well.copyright protection20PENANAfrs6YfAm2J24Please respect copyright.PENANAoHmZz52zwS

He had been waiting for this night. It was Halloween. He would use the holiday as an excuse to finally get to speak to her. He would dress up in a mask, knock on her door and say, “Trick or treat!”copyright protection20PENANAxeHz2ywSq024Please respect copyright.PENANAx37U3HZ6hw

It would be nice seeing her up close again. He had been able speak to her in person three times. All three times when he was paying for books at the bookstore while she was ringing up his books. copyright protection20PENANA7bCDJJH5om24Please respect copyright.PENANASX8ZRbHRiY

He considered the first time she had rung him up at the register their first date. The book and the receipt were on his mantle. Two vanilla scented candles burned on either side of the book that embodied their first date. Above the candles and book were dozens of pictures of her that he had taken in secret. It was his shrine in honor of her. copyright protection20PENANAZoLng0E35i24Please respect copyright.PENANA2oAFzP3IYi

She finished brushing her hair and started to put on her Halloween costume. She dressed herself as a nurse. Not a slutty one, mind you, but a real one. A classy one. She was so perfect. copyright protection20PENANAv2frR7l1Gf24Please respect copyright.PENANAyxH8dhYgZW

With her out of the room, he slipped on his simple ghost costume. A sheet with holes for eyes. It didn't get any simpler than that. He thought that she respected simplicity. He wanted her respect. He needed her respect. He would get her respect no matter what the cost. copyright protection20PENANADXehqhcU0924Please respect copyright.PENANA1Yi0VwbaJD

Darkness had started to fall and he stepped out of his hiding place in the bushes and made his way around to the front of the house. A lone trick or treater was a few houses down. A girl in a cheerleader’s outfit was working the neighborhood for candy. copyright protection20PENANAQI8brapjyE24Please respect copyright.PENANA3ygmycSKmC

It was the best opportunity for him. He would go up to the porch with the cheerleader. That way he wouldn't arouse suspicion by being much too old for gathering candy. He would look like her dad or older brother. It was perfect.  Just like her. copyright protection20PENANAQroJZFVqb924Please respect copyright.PENANAO7k5tThmDE

“What a wonderful cheerleader costume!” she said to the little girl as she held out a bucket of candy for her to choose from. The cheerleader took a piece of candy, stuffed it into her bag and headed to the next house. copyright protection20PENANAzVIWCujZc624Please respect copyright.PENANA4RMvxLq898
