The sun smiled down on the city goers. People walked this way and that as they headed for home. Sharp gold eyes watched the people from a park bench. The city melted into the park then melted back into the city. The man who owned the gold eyes chewed on a toothpick. He grinned at a group of women who rushed past to get through the park.
He turned his head to watch. Bored, he stood and shoved his hands into the pockets of his ratty jeans. He spat out the toothpick and hissed when a young couple glared at him.
He looked around until he spotted a young mother on her cell phone. She pushed a blue and purple baby stroller and wasn’t paying attention. He waited until she walked past him then slinked after her.
A few people looked at him but didn’t seem too bothered with his presence. He could hear the conversation from the exhausted mother. She was practically yelling at someone on the phone.
Trouble in paradise, he thought to himself.
He kicked a rock with his old brown cowboy boot and almost hit the woman’s shoe. He better be careful. He didn’t want to bring attention to himself.
A man in a nice three-piece suit walked in front of him. The man grunted and caught the other guy’s attention. The suit man glanced over his shoulder and wrinkled his nose when he saw the golden-eyed man.
The man chuckled when suit guy straightened his tie but kept walking behind the woman. The woman finally hung up her phone and slipped it into her purse. She looked upset. She was almost out of the park when suit guy reached into his pocket. He pulled out a knife and stepped closer to the woman.
Before suit guy could rob the woman, gold eyes grabbed his arm. He spun the man around and glared into his eyes. Suit guy swung his knife, but the knife never made it to its mark.
Slacked jaw, suit guy dropped the knife. It clattered to the ground. Gold eyes let suit guy go and walked away. Suit guy turned on his heel and walked past the mom and her sleeping baby in the stroller. He came to a red hand for crossing, but he didn’t stop. He walked into traffic.
Tires screeched to a stop, people screamed, and suit guy was hit. Police were called to the scene and from a safe distance, gold eyes watched.
“You could have at least let him live and be arrested, you know,” a sing song voice said behind gold eyes.
“Not my style,” gold eyes said with a growl as he looked back at an angelic woman.
“You might be a demon, but you’re a demon with a heart,” she said, her voice soft as a bubbling brook.
Gold eyes turned away from the scene and hissed. “Don’t remind me. Let’s get out of here. I’m hungry.”
The woman nodded and the two walked away. Behind them, an officer got excited when he got a call about the dead man. He informed his chief the suit guy had been the park murderer they had been looking for.
