I agree. Your story is wonderful so far and I can't wait to see more. But why does choosing to wake up the Watcher seem to have such violent options? If I were in such a situation, I'd decide to either a) tap his cheek lightly; or b) leave him alone to sleep and return to the original option of answering the door myself. Smothering him with a pillow is awful, especially when no one knows if you're a trustworthy character or not in the first place. I actually thought for a second that the pillow may have had some magical qualities to it and that doing something with the pillow would help to break the spell on Watcher or something. Or at the very least capture his interest. Either way, the story seems to be going towards a good place. Definitely makes me ask a few questions.
