At first sight
I knew exactly who he was when we first met, had known it the moment I first
And more exactly, I knew what he was.
I could feel it, this slightly tingling sensation along my spine and how his presence raised all of the hair at the back of my neck. I knew who he was, just like I'd always known with his predecessors. I've never come so close to them though, never played with the fire like I do with him.
And I've definitely never allowed one of them to come this close to me, not when I knew about who they were.
But with Starsky it's different, Starsky is different and in all these years of my existence I've never met someone like him. I'm also pretty sure there's never been a Slayer like him before.
Oh yes, I knew all about him. It's in my nature to know and recognize the Slayer, the hated and feared enemy of my kind. The one who hunts us down and delivers us our final death.
But I'm pretty sure and can tell that when he shook my hand and told me he'd be my new partner, he had no idea about myself. And I think I'll leave it at that for now. It's better for him if he doesn't know.
