~So the wedding dress fic inspired me and I wrote a little three parter prequel to it. Hope ya enjoy~
I was so engrossed in my movie that when I heard the crash from the other room, I screamed. My heart raced as i turned off my movie and went to investigate. I grabbed a bat on my way down the hallway just in case. I opened every door and found nothing until I got to my bedroom. I let out a sigh of relief and frustration as I found that it had just been a couple shelves off of my book case that tumbled to the ground. I quickly got out my phone and picked Kozik’s number. Him and all the Tacoma sons looked after me ever since my dad died. He had been a brother and as the boys put it, I was the Tacoma princess.
“Hey baby girl, what’s up?” Kozik answered.
“Kozzy, I need help.” I pouted as I looked at my bookshelf.
“What’s wrong?” He asked on high alert.
“My book case broke.” I told him. I heard him chuckle at my whine. “Can you come over and help me fix it?”
“You know I would baby girl but I got some errands to run for the club today.” He paused. “Actually, I’ll see if Happy can come help you. He’s transferring from redwood and he’s the only one not doing something today.”
“I’d be really grateful if he could. Tell him I’ll make him brownies!” I said and Kozik laughed.
“Do I get any of those, baby girl?” He asked.
“No you aren’t helping.” I laughed.
“Pleaseeeeee…” He whined.
“Fine, but you are coming to get them yourself.” I told him.
“Deal once everything’s settled for today I’ll come over.” He told me, his voice was all peppy again and I laughed. “Here, I found Hap. Hold on and I’ll ask him.”
“Okay.” I said. I heard muffled talking and started moving books as I waited for Kozik.
“He said he’d be happy to help.” Kozik laughed at his own stupid joke.
“You are a moron.” I shook my head and pinched the bridge of my nose.
“You know you love me.” Kozik said in a sing songy voice.
“Whatever stops the tears, Kozzy.” I smiled.
“Hey!” He said while sounding offended and then he laughed. “I gotta go but Happy will be there soon. Love ya, baby girl.”
“Love you too, Koz.” I replied and hung up. I continued picking books up and placing them on my bed. Once that was finished I went to start on the brownies. Just after I put them in the oven a knock came. I went to open the door and my eyes widened slightly at the man in front of me. He was definitely a Son in every aspect of that word.
“Happy?” I asked just to make sure it was him. He gave a simple nod and I smiled and opened the door. “Come on in!” I told him. He walked through the doorway and I noticed he had a toolbox with him.
“Thank you for doing this.” I said while leading him through my house. “I have brownies in the oven like I promised.” I told him. He wasn’t much of a talker but that was okay I could talk enough for both of us. I stopped at the kitchen doorway and looked at him. “You want a beer or something.” He grunted and gave another nod. I smiled and got us both one before continuing on our way to my room.
He followed and I showed him the broken bookcase. I set the beer down on my dresser. I also pulled my hair up. He went to examine the bookcase.
“How would you like me?” I asked him. He paused and turned towards me with an amused smirk and a raised eyebrow. “To help. Pervert.” I laughed. He chuckled and turned back to look at the bookcase.
“I’ll lift the boards where they need to go and you can screw in the screws.” He finally spoke.
“Ah he speaks!” I giggled. “And okie dokie!” He chuckled again and we set off to work. It took about half hour perfect timing for the brownies to get done. After we finished the bookcase, I got us some brownies and he helped me put my books back.
“I was watching a movie before this. You want to stay and watch it? I can start from the beginning.” I asked him. He shrugged and nodded. I had been watching Pitch Black the first of the Riddick movies. It was a trilogy that I had gotten Kozik into. I figured Happy might like it also.
We settled into the couch together. We watched the whole trilogy and a couple others. Kozik joined us later on and at the end of the night we all fell asleep on the couch. That was the start of Happy and mine’s friendship.
~Let me know what you think and I’ll put out part 2 tomorrow!~
No one knows exactly where and when Ted Bundy began killing. Many Bundy experts, including Rule and former King County detective Robert D. Keppel, believe he may have started killing as far back as his early teens. Ann Marie Burr, an eight-year-old girl from Tacoma, vanished from her home in 1961, when he was 14 years old, though he always denied killing her. The day before his execution, Bundy told his lawyer that he made his first attempt to kidnap a woman in 1969, and implied that he committed his first actual murder sometime in 1972. At one point in his death-row confessions with Keppel, Bundy said he committed his first murder in 1972.
