Characters: Olivia, Elliot
"Shh. Did you hear that?" Elliot drew his gun.
"Hear what?" Olivia listened closely. A scratching came from somewhere nearby.
"The closet." Olivia nodded as Elliot gestured toward the door. She reached for the doorknob slowly. At Elliot's nod, she yanked the door open. He brought his gun to the ready.
A look of combined amusement and exasperation crossed his face as he holstered his weapon. Olivia glanced at him quizzically, then looked inside the closet. Luminous green eyes peered out of a small, adorable face.
She laughed. "Need a pet, El?"
"Oh, don't even say that," he groaned.
