Mẹ spoke to Ngoại in Vietnamese, and Ngoại cast a disapproving look Janie’s way. Stella didn’t understand what she said when she spoke, but it sounded ominous.
Aiden frowned. "Why wouldn't the Founding Families support that?"Behind them Declan barked his laughter. "Because sir, the prince wants to open up the city to any local paranormal, not just vampires. The locals do not want to sully their precious city with shifters." Declan sounded bitter.
Aiden's expression turned frosty. "Is that so?"Magnus nodded. "I hate to admit it, but they would probably protest younger vampires with mixed bloodlines as well. It is why I had to get you here. They will hate having shifters here, but they will not dare speak against it while you are in the city.""Why me? I'm not a vampire?" Aiden asked.
Declan, Etain, and Micah chuckled.Adriel just started at his commander. "Are you serious, sir?"
Gavriel smirked. "Aiden, I keep telling you that you are popular; you do not listen."
Tarak stepped forward. "Your Highness, if I may?"Her shoulders slumped, and her throat burned with shame. She made herself nod.
Michael doesn’t know, does he? He never would’ve taken you here if he knew. You should tell him.All she could do was shake her head. Anytime people learned about her disorder, they started walking on eggshells around her. It strained the relationship until they found a way to leave. She never told people anymore. Apparently, that wasn’t enough to keep some from figuring it out on their own.
Can I borrow a hundred dollars from you, please? I want to go home. And her credit card was inside.You’re going to leave? Michael’s probably looking for you.
