The Visitor


“You’re writing about me again.”

There was such underlying warmth mixed with surprise and–was that the faintest hint of reproof?–in that deep rumble of his.

He was sitting there at the foot of her bed, that glossy raven head tilted to one side quizzically,  hands clasped around one bent knee folded casually across his leg. A dark knight from a different age decked out in his version of fancy-dress: well-worn, boot-cut jeans encased those never-ending pipes of his, a black V-neck t-shirt and a black leather jacket.  His trademark stubble was heavy enough to be called a beard and there was just a hint of kohl encircling those bottomless blue eyes.

She wanted to fling her arms around him, bury her face in that broad chest and breathe in his scent. Leather,  sandalwood soap and–chocolate.  Instead of embracing him, she leaned forward and ever so gently brushed his chin with her fingertips.

“You’ve been into the chocolate animal crackers again, haven’t you, Sir Guy? If you’re going to keep that rather fetching beard, I shall have to buy you a brush and comb for it, I suppose.”

Sir Guy caught up her fingers in his hand. So warm. He radiates warmth.

Turning her hand over, he raised it palm upwards to his mouth. His eyes closed, he pressed kisses, light as gossamer, to the surface of her palm.

Oh my.

“You’re crying.”

“So are you.”

He smiled.

A beautiful bearded angel in black leather.

“Perhaps–we’ve missed each other, Ladywriter?”

Perhaps we have.

  1. Oh, and I’ve missed him too Angie. So perfect, you conjure him up so beautifully in words. Thankyou. We need him around again I think, – at least, I really do! Can’t wait to see him as Chop in the movie ‘Urban’ – and now he’ll be gone for weeks and weeks to do this ten part series in Berlin where it’s being filmed for TV ! another Lucas North but working for the C.I.A this time.

    • Seeing his Chop hair and stubble made me pine so much for Guy. I had an actual physical ache for him (well, I also fell and banged myself up in the shower but that’s a different kind of ache). I am hoping we will get some BTS stills sent to us from the set of the Epix series. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    • Chop’s hair reminds me of S3 Guy—especially when his stubble was the heaviest. I’d feel funny writing fanfic about a real person (Bernard Hare)–I am going to stick with the fictional ones. 😀

  2. Please can you send him over to me? I wanna give him a hug and get a bear hug back! What’s more, it’s my b’day so I can make a wish? Sqeeee!
