Knock, Knock Ch.2: All the Reasons Not to Kill You Sorry for the delay! Enjoy some more CS neighbor-friendship goodness.

Ch. 1


Let’s get one thing clear: he was still loud as fuck. And annoying. And so… British. He and his mates would watch football and have a rousing, jolly good time while Emma was just trying to sort through records to figure out if this bail-skipping douchebag might be living in his old neighborhood again.
