Stanley continued across the kitchen. Veronica still chopping watched, this was possible to see as the light reflected from her eyes moved, as he walked towards the door leading to the dark red carpeted stairs.
The door leading to the alley way opened with a bang and a flash of golden brown hair, whipping into the room, a cooler backpack strapped to her back, Irma pounced on Stanley.
"Hey there Stan-lee. Guess who just saved your cold back?" She purred, releasing him from the floor.
Steadily getting up he replied "I'm guessing you did." She appeared not to have noticed and was now delightedly pulling on an apron and walking into the darkness where Veronica was working.
Stanley, realising that Irma had completely forgotten she was talking to him, began walking again to the door leading to the stairs. But as he reached the door Veronica threw a knife into the door inches from his cheek."big sis is busy. Bother her later, she is having an interview today for a new member of staff and she is prepping. So no disturbing,oh and pass me my knife please Stanley."
Removing the knife from the door, (which took a great deal of effort) Veronica was scarily good at throwing knives deep into whatever she chose to throw it into, Stanley walked towards the dark and Veronica moved slowly towards the light.
