I’ve got to stand up, but I can’t do it without leaning on him dammit. Morgan grabs my arms and pulls me close enough that I have to place my hand on his chest to get a little space. I hear the growling again and give up the space I’d created for myself, almost embarrassingly jumping into his arms again.

“Tell me exactly what you heard and felt, I can’t see anything but maybe I missed something.”
He sounds hopeful, he doesn’t want the new girl to be a crazy person.
