Newt could sense him there even if he wasn't so sure it was Ste in that black hoodie. It had to be.
He and Billy were at the park with Leia. He had his guard up. Although, he wasn't sure what good it would do him. Exactly. There was Leia to think about. What if Ste came out of no where and just abducted her? Would he? Maybe he wasn't thinking at all about that. Newt sort of doubted it.
It was the idea that Newt was with Billy that probably taunted Ste more. As it was, Newt still knew Ste had the heart of a bully. But he knew Ste was watching him. Maybe this was his way to get back at Billy. Newt felt as if it were ridiculous. Really. He just hoped he'd go away. Lay low. Did the man have any sense, left.
Newt just didn't want to be alone. He didn't even want to go home.
He even imagined Ste waiting for him back in his room. It was an awful nightmare to think about.
"Maybe we should go back to your place soon, put on a movie perhaps," Newt suggested. The dark clouds were moving in.
"I guess we should," Billy looked up at the sky, picking up Leia.
Newt almost smiled, but remained even lipped, he was sure his time was ticking away. He'd probably see Ste sometime after nightfall. He really wanted to stay with Billy and Leia as long as he could.
