Rhetts hand lingers on my rear, slides up my spine when his roommate disappears from sight. Reaches for a sweatshirt off the hook by his door, tank top rising when he lifts his arm, smooth expanse of midsection exposed from the motion.
Duncan said he asked for amnesty. Thomas looked down at me. Are you going to give it to him?Im not sure yet, I said. He hasnt been able to talk much. But Im letting him stay here for now, at least until he heals and we can have a conversation.
How do you want us to handle this? Thomas asked.We cant tell Elora. Not right now, I said.The last time Loki had been here, hed been held captive. We dont have a real prison, so Elora had used her telekinesis to hold him in place, but that had weakened her so much it nearly killed her. In fact, she hadnt recovered from it yet, and there would be no way she could do it again.
Besides that, I didnt think Loki was really capable of causing trouble. Not in this state, at least. And hed come to us of his own free will. We didnt need to hold him.We need a guard stationed outside his door at all times, just to be safe, I said. I dont think hes a threat, but I wont take any chances with the Vittra.
I can stand watch now, but somebody will have to relieve me of my post eventually, Thomas said.
I can take over later, Duncan offered.I dont have a car. Finn shoved his hands in his pockets and slowed down.
I hobbled a little, and he didnt offer to help me. Not that I wouldve accepted his offer, but that was beside the point.What do you call that Cadillac you always drive? I asked.
Eloras, he said. She lends me the car for work, the same way she lends all the trackers cars. But we dont own them. I dont actually own anything.What about your clothes? I asked, mostly just to irritate him. I assumed he actually owned them, but I wanted to argue with him about something.
