Daily Prompt: sharply

This is from the reworked section. As I have no idea if I’ve shared the old section before, you’ll just have to take my word for it that it’s better.

From Protector of the Grey House:

Rebecca turned to glance at Charlie. “Tell me quickly. I’m still trying to decide if we need a human. We may need to wake Joseph.”

He glanced sharply at his wife. “Why?”

“Tell me about Natalia.”

He shook his head. “She was real fidgety. Seemed agitated.”


He placed his hand on Rebecca’s shoulder until she turned and looked at him. “Have you ever known her to fidget? When she’s agitated, or angry she shows it with anger. I don’t have a memory of her ever acting nervous.”

Rebecca’s mouth and eyes popped open wide as she thought for a moment. She took a deep breath. “Get a human. Joseph might be better in this situation. We take down with force. They do too, but he can subdue her better.”
