"Menace is good, Menace is wise. Trust the Menace, over."
"You're a fucking asshole.""You said that already."
"You were such a huge asshole I had to say it twice." She couldn't stay mad at him. He looked so damn pitiful. She walked over until she stood in front of him."Does it hurt?" She pointed to his side."Not as much as my damn shin."
"You deserved that.""I guess I did." Aiden cupped her face with both of his hands, pride shining in his eyes.
"Gavriel called me every type of idiot and told me to beg for forgiveness on my hands and knees if need be. He said that you had singlehandedly doubled our resources. He showed me what you did on your laptop. By hacking into the city's cameras we can monitor the city streets and send reinforcements the second one of the trainee units got into trouble. This allows us to put all seasoned warriors in the field without splitting our resources between the city and the perimeter." He kissed her gently.
"Please forgive me. I love you and your antics. The thought of life without you scares the hell out of me." He placed small kisses all over her face. Careful of his injury she wrapped her arms around him, he held her close."How do you feel, zain'ka moya?" he asked.
"What's zain'ka?"He leaned in and whispered against her neck. "My sunshine or rabbit. I thought it fitting."
His warm breath against her neck sent renewed shivers through her body.The two men behind Gavriel cleared their throats. Gavriel stood and kissed her forehead.
