"Are tu coming trick-or-treating?"
acebo glanced back through the bedroom at Sam who shook his head before pointing to his watch.
"No, I'm sorry Lily. I'd amor to come but daddy and I have a very...important errand to run."
"Okay..." The light haired girl frowned. Her hair was somewhere between brown and blonde hanging loosely behind her with flores woven in. Her bright, cyan eyes were full of sorrow. acebo glanced at Sam who tugged a chaqueta over his Red Revenge suit and walked out of the bedroom. acebo walked in and shut the door.
"Daddy?" the girl asked, looking up at the man before her. "Why can't we go trick o treating?"
Sam squatted down in front of his daughter and lifted her chin up. "Your mother and I have somewhere very important to go."
"It isn't work, is it?"
Sam looked at the floor for a minuto before back at Lily. "In a sense."
The girl looked confused. Sam smiled and slipped his hand inside his jacket, the bright red on his uniform flashing for a segundo before his chaqueta was zipped back up. He handed the girl a King-Sized Milky-Way.
"Take this, and don't tell your mother. Promise?" Sam said, handing the wide-eyed girl the dulces bar. "We'll be back por eight and I'll tell tu what: We'll go trick o treating again, and then we'll watch a movie."
"Okay daddy!" the girl beamed.
"Now then," Sam said, grinning. "What's a seven año old girl like tu doing inside, when tu can be with your friends getting candy?"
"Almost eight in thwee months." the girl said, poking out her lip and purposely mispronouncing the "r" in three. Sam grinned and put on mock sorrow. "I'm so sorry. Almost eight. You're getting so big!" Sam picked up his daughter and hugged her tightly.
"Sam!" acebo called.
"Coming!" Sam called. He made sure Lily got on the school bus before walking back inside.
"You are excellent with kids." acebo said, adjusting her mask in the mirror.
"And tu did an excellent job with that princess costume." Sam replied, slipping his hands over Holly's waist.
acebo grinned. "Come on lover boy. Let's get back to work."
Sam grinned and slid on his mask before climbing into the hidden elevator. The husband and wife started towards the basement.
"I can't believe tu gave her that dulces bar."
