"Are you imagining what I will do to you? You saw my cock when I was getting dressed. Are you wondering what it looks like hard and dripping for you?" His voice came from her left. He was circling the bed.
"What was that Gamma Kitten One? You're breaking up. We're on our way. Menace over and out." Meryn clicked the walkie-talkie off before turning to Byron."I assume you approve."
He nodded. "It makes sense to get everyone together so we don't have split resources."Meryn smiled. "That's why you kick ass playing strategy games." She turned to Jaxon, Noah, and Penny. "Let's roll."Beth shook her head and picked up Meryn's bag. Ryuu had already gathered their coats and was waiting in the hallway. They ended up taking three SUVs to the city. Beth had never been so scared as when they made their way to the city center. Gamma, Delta, and Epsilon Units, along with volunteer warriors, had created a large barricade in front of Council Manor lit by spotlights. This is where the city had held the Midwinter Ball in December. Families from nearby houses and businesses had come here for protection.
When Sascha saw them approaching, Beth could see him cussing from where she stood."Dammit Menace! Are you trying to get us both killed?" Sascha yelled.
Meryn crossed her arms. "Where are the Delta and Epsilon Units? Why is Gamma defending this barricade alone?"
Sascha shot a look at Byron who simply raised an eyebrow. Sascha turned back to Meryn. "They are helping to defend checkpoints throughout the city, there are a lot of scared people out there."I looked up from the cell and spotted two witches on our front porch. Lachish Dutillet and Bliss. I hadn’t seen either since the Witch Conclave and they looked good—or as well as soaking-wet women could. They were confronting two armed men on the stoop, two of Derek’s six-man security sextet. Unit. Whatever. The former military types had weapons drawn and the witches were retreating slowly, while drawing up power, one from the storm and one from the earth. This day would never freaking end.
Eli pulled to a stop and I jumped out just as he lowered his window and let out a piercing whistle. I’d never heard him do that before, and I flinched. Fortunately he was looking away from me. The four near-combatants started too. Also fortunately, no one fired a weapon. No one died.Idiots! I yelled as I slogged through the rain and the standing water. Stand down!
We thought they had you captive, Lachish called.I stomped my wet boots up to the porch. I wish someone had me locked in my house, nice and dry and sleeping. Let’s take this inside. Boys, report to Derek. And get a list of people he thinks is okay to knock on my door. I stopped. Who fixed my door? It was busted in.
