With a yawn Danny climbs out of bed and stretches, the quiet is disturbed by the pop of joints. He wipes the sleep from his eyes, picks up his mobile and shuffles out to the kitchen to make coffee.
After the coffee pot is started he sits down at the kitchen table to kill a little time, not ready to think about work. Twitter is still a bit new to him and he's taken an interest in it. After he sees a few good morning tweets and links to kinky photos he reads one that makes his eyebrows raise.
Danny thinks, Wow, seriously? He had been only following the young woman for a short time and had not paid a lot of attention to her tweets.
<painedheart> Ok figured out where I am...cab is on the way...yeah not happy bout myself
Feeling voyeuristic he continues to read, he feels better that things seem to be back in control for the young lady. Then the heartbreak comes.
<painedheart> Gonna cry...wish I had a sister right about now :( :(
<painedheart> Definitely hurting today...what did I do
<painedheart> I used to be a good girl...what happened to me?
Typically unflappable and controlled, most of Danny's friends consider him laid-back, a person that keeps a cool head in the most chaotic situations. However he does have a weakness, a cliché, the Damsel in Distress; and the young woman's pleas strike him to the core. He feels compelled to act... but can't.
He sets his phone aside and heads for the shower and work. All day his mind returns to the young woman. Is she okay? Is she hurt? he wonders.
Initially to see if she is well Danny begins paying more attention to her tweets. Through the chatter with her friends a picture begins to emerge of a typical young woman, albeit involved in a bit of kink, facing life. However he detects something underneath he finds alluring, a special innocence... a sweetness about her. He decides to continue to follow her on Twitter.
<painedheart> Bartender likes me drunk
Oh, girl, you're not going there again already are you? he thinks. Suddenly he finds himself feeling protective. Is the bartender really trying to get her drunk? he wonders. The feeling to act is back, and this time he decides to reach out.
