Fandom: Anita Blake
Anita couldn't sleep, so she had left Nathaniel in bed and moved into the living room. Everyone else was out doing their own things and the house was too quiet; it made her edgy.
A noise in the corridor alerted her to the fact she was no longer alone, but she really didn't expect to see a leopard padding through the door. Nathaniel walked over, jumped on the couch, put his head in her lap and began the big cat equivalent of a purr, filling the silence with sound. Anita smiled; somehow Nathaniel always knew how to make her relax.
