Duvas brows began to twitch and furrow as she stirred.
Im not. I swear, Im not, he told her honestly. I would if I could, but I know I cant.Penn sighed and let go of him, allowing Daniel to sit up on the bed next to her. So what? What do you need to know thats important?
When this is over, are you gonna kill me?Im not a praying mantis. She still lay back on the bed, staring up at the skylight and the darkening sky above them. When hed arrived, the sun had been setting, but now the stars were starting to come out.You kinda are, actually, Daniel countered.
She sat up so she could look at him directly. Why are you even asking me this?Because I want to know. Wouldnt you want to know if you only had a few hours left to live?
A few hours? Penn smirked. Youre being generous.
You told me you were gonna rock my world, so Im making assumptions here.Earlier, there had been a classic car show at Bayside Park, but that had been replaced by a local band playing covers of hits from the fifties. The sound of their crooning an old Elvis song wafted over the beach.
Gemma dug her feet into the sand, not daring to go any closer. The water lapped at the edge of her toes, enough where she could feel the slightest hint of a flutter but not enough to bring on a shift.Stars shone brightly in the indigo sky, and Gemma lay back so she could stare up at them. Searching for the constellations that Alex had shown her, she almost wished shed invited him down here with her.
But shed wanted some time alone. Her head was buzzing from the watersong, and she needed to ease it. Her failed attempts at breaking the curse had left her crestfallen, and her hunger pangs were only growing stronger.She needed to do something if she wanted to keep from going mad, but it appeared that it would be very late before shed be able to sneak off for a night swim without the risk of being spotted.
