I hope one day to finish the prequel to The Grey House, as it shows Charlie and Natalia’s relationship and how they met. It was in the trilogy originally, but I was advised to cut out a ton of the story prior to Natalia meeting Vincent. I listened, but I want to share the story with you all at some point.
From Inside the Grey House:
He gave her an odd look through the rearview mirror. “Nat, I’m here to help you as you need, but it’s just a little weird for me. I still picture you as the girl that saved me from the gilded cage. Seeing you like this…”
Charlie shook his head and shrugged, not sure of what to say. Instead of trying, he unbuckled and unzipped his pants, pulled off the ripped pair and started putting on the new pair. Natalia didn’t comment, deciding to pay attention to the road instead. She was able to reach Jeffery’s apartment quickly and without incident. Once there, she pulled out a new chloroform cloth from her backpack and placed it against his nose and mouth. She left it there for a few minutes, then put the cloth away.
“All right, get out and help me, but stumble around a bit like you’ve been drinking.”
