He wasn't phased by the silent rejection, he understood her fear of physical contact. She had many walls she hid behind and he treated her much as one would a cat. With constant devotion, with care and love, holding on to the moments of attention like pearls from heaven. He was so taken with her at first sight, there was no questionable doubt that he wanted to be a part of her world. He was willing to be as patient as Job if it meant having a place in her heart.

Slayers Project - Ch 14 Fight Or...? The week seemingly flew by and between her day and night jobs, Renee saw very little of Zeke and nothing at all of Ephriam.

He was better than his father in every way imaginable. His father h
Slayers Project - Ch 13 Human Ephriam could not wipe away the grin plastered to his face. Being around her made him feel more human than he had felt in four hundred years. He didn't fear the rising sun, she made him want to flirt with death if it meant seeing her for just a few minutes longer. He made it to his basement hideout with only seconds to spare. Amidst the dust and decay, he suddenly wished for a companion. Someone in which he could divulge his giddy crush on the mortal slayer. He felt too wound up for sleep but his preternatural nature took over and it wasn't long before he was dreaming impatiently of midnight picnics and a hazel-green eyed goddess.Slayers Project - Ch 13 Human by CrisisKainota
Zeke was saved from a verbal beat down by Renee's first day back to doing deliveries. Her boss and coworkers gave their condolences to her and extended them to the family.
"Is sad thing for you," Nikolas said in his Russian bear voice, "I am very sorry."
"It is but I feel like he's watching over me now," she replied with a smil
