This is a continence from Angel With The Demon Eyes.
Upon reaching the city, Anna Marie could hear the sounds of music and people laughing and cheering. She was more excited than ever. Remy led her down the main street to behold the beautiful floats that passed by. They had just arrived in time for the parade, and it sent the biggest smile on Anna Marie’s face. They watched a few floats go by, but suddenly Anna Marie started to feel lightheaded.
“Somethin’ wrong?” Remy asked.
“No, ah think ah’m just hungry is all,” she said.
“Then we’ll have ta get somethin’ ta eat,” he said. “Come on.” He led her into the park where he found an empty bench. “Jus’ sit here an’ I’ll be right back.”
“Where ya goin’?” she asked. She didn’t like the thought very much of being in a strange city all alone.
“Ta get us some food,” he said. “Jus’ stay here out of sight. I promise I’ll be back soon.”
“Okay,” she said.
The bench she was sitting on was in a secluded place, but she was still able to see the parade from where she was sitting. After about a half hour she was getting concerned. Had Remy abandoned her? The thought frightened her, but she still waited patiently for him to return.
After another fifteen minutes she saw a figure approaching. She got up off the bench and ran behind a nearby tree. She peeked out slowly from her hiding place and saw Remy’s figure approaching the bench she had been sitting on.
“Anna,” he called out.
She was relieved that it was him and not some stranger. She came out behind the tree. She felt a little foolish, but after all she had been through lately she had become just a little paranoid.
“I got us some food,” Remy said. She sat down on the bench as Remy handed her a sandwich. “Careful, it’s hot.”
She unwrapped it and let the cool air of the night take some of the heat off. Then she took a nice big bite. “This is good,” she said after swallowing it.
