How do you know he didn’t lead those men right to you? he demanded.
She leaned back to look into his face. I missed you.He laughed in that satisfied, ego-laden manner men sometimes did. I could tell.
She smirked and gently, teasingly tugged at his hair.You done good with Delphine, he told her.She smiled against his chest. The subject of Delphine’s accident was still a tender subject between them. She knew, despite his spoken forgiveness, some part of him was still angry at her for drawing a wild dolphin to the dock with food and attention, so this praise fell sweet on her ears.
She called after you left. Actually, it was kind of a thank-you call. She told me how Delphine turned the corner after you visited. She was very pleased. And impressed.Carson felt warmth bloom in her chest. I felt badly leaving so quickly and on such short notice.
She understood. It was a family emergency. Besides, she thought it might’ve been for the best.
Your bond with Delphine is so strong. If she’s got any hope to be released to the wild, she can’t continue to seek out humans. Especially not you.Jordan scoffed. That bastard had the rest of us tied up, so Sara took his demon hostage until he let us go.
Chris turned in his seat. You took an upper demon hostage? This I have to hear.It wasn’t like I actually saw the demon. Orias already had it trapped in a lamp. I took the lamp and shook it up a little. Demons really don’t like Fae magic.
No, I would guess not. Nikolas kept his eyes on the road, so it was hard to tell what he was thinking.How do you fit a demon in a lamp anyway? Jordan asked. It was something I had wondered myself.
