I Need You: Part 3
Jorah opened the door of his apartment and stepped aside allowing Dany to enter first. The apartment was small but very tidy.
“It’s not much but it’s clean,” Jorah said as he stood beside Dany at the doorway.
“It’s really nice, Jorah. Thank you again for letting me stay with you.”
Jorah smiled and nodded. He took the overnight bag he carried into the bedroom and placed it on the bed.
“Can I get you something to drink?” Jorah asked as he headed toward the refrigerator.
“Just water,” Dany said as she sat on the sofa. She noticed there was folded bedding on one of the cushions.
Jorah took two bottles of water out of the fridge and handed one to her. “Here, I’ll take those,” Jorah said as he grabbed the bedding and dropped them beside the couch. He then sat opposite Dany in his lounge chair.
“I should be the one sleeping on the sofa, Jorah, not you,” Dany said.
“Yeah, as if,” said Jorah chuckling. “Are you sure you’re okay?”
Dany shook her head and took a drink of water. “I don’t understand what’s happening!” she said and burst into tears.
Jorah sat beside her and took her in his arms. “I promise you, I’ll get to the bottom of this. In the meantime, you should take a few days off work. Tell them as little as possible. You can stay here for as long as you want or you can go to a friend you know you can trust.”
Jorah held Dany in his arms while she cried. He knew she was feeling a mixture of emotions and needed time to process everything that had happened. He took tissues from the box on the coffee table and handed them to Dany. She blew her nose and smiled at him.
“Yes, thanks. Sorry, I’m not usually such a girl.”
Jorah chuckled and sat back in his chair.
“So what’s the plan?” Dany asked as she settled back on the sofa.
“If you want, you stay here while I go make my rounds with my contacts. I’ve got the word out and I’ll see what dirt they’ve dug up for me. Anyway, that’s for tomorrow. Tonight, you’re going to get some rest. Are you hungry?”
“Famished,” Dany said smiling.
Jorah stood and rubbed his hands. “Okay then. Look, I don’t really cook but I can make us…”
Before Jorah could finish shots rang out and blood splattered on Dany’s face.

Iain Glen at the Words & Wickets Festival in September 2013. He will be returning this year on July 24-26th. Looking forward to seeing new photos of Iain playing cricket.
“Representing a piece of writing in theatre, without the pressure of an audience is the most exciting time. I love playing with the actors and director about how something can become manifest, that’s the reason I went into this job, not for fortune or walking down a red carpet – to play with lines and make them feel they belong to me.” —Iain Glen
I Need You: Part 1 - Dany and Jorah AU
I Need You: Part 2
Jorah stepped into the police station as Dany was giving her statement to Detective Barristan Selmy. She nearly jumped out of her seat to wrap her arms around Jorah’s strong body, but she knew it wouldn’t be appropriate.
Jorah gave her a little wave and mouthed he would wait for her in the car. She nodded and gave her attention back to Selmy.
“Are we done, Detective Selmy?” Dany asked.
“I think we’ve covered just about everything. If you see anyone suspicious or if anything seems out of the ordinary, don’t hesitate to call me,” Selmy said as he handed Dany his card.
Dany smiled at the older man. “Thank you. I will.”
Jorah stepped out of his car and opened the passenger door for Dany. She smiled up at him and sat in the car. He quickly got behind the wheel and drove off.
“Are you all right?” Jorah asked with concern.
“I am now. Thanks for picking me up.”
“Not a problem. And…you’re staying at my place tonight. I’m not letting you out of my sight.”
“Thanks, Jorah. I appreciate it. I couldn’t go back to my place right now and I don’t want to be alone.”
“Now do you agree I should be your bodyguard?” Jorah asked. “Until we find out what’s going on and who’s trying to kill you.”
Jorah had offered his services after the first attempt on Dany’s life. He was ex-Secret Service and was now a private detective but Dany had decided the club incident was a one-of and didn’t want to pursue the issue. But now this had happened. It didn’t take a genius to know her life was in danger and she needed Jorah to find out who was behind these attempts on her life. It couldn’t go on.
“Are you thinking what I’m thinking,” Jorah asked.
“And what’s that?”
“Viserys,” Jorah said.
“Of course not! He’s my brother, Jorah. How can you even say that?” Dany asked angrily.
“You have a gentle heart, Daenerys. But you have to remember how much your brother hates you.”
Dany looked out the window and closed her eyes. Maybe Jorah was right. But then again, there were the Lannisters to consider.
