Kate Beckett is a homeless woman in her twenties and one day a man stumbles across her. Richard Castle can't stop trying to convince Kate to stay with him, but Kate doesn't want him in danger. She doesn't want him to be in the same danger as her, and she tries her best to be cold but nothing seems to drive him away. She even meets his 5 year old daughter and his mother and they are being nicer to her than anyone has been since her mother's death. She really doesn't want to leave them but she can't risk them being in danger. The question is, will she follow her mind... or her heart? Disclaimer, I do NOT own the characters!!
