What the fuck! Chuck glared at the guy. People get killed off that thing!
Hey there, pretty baby. How’s my favorite wolf in the world? Marcus’s smile was obvious in his voice.I, um, I’m fine. Good. I, um . . .
Roni, what’s wrong? he asked cautiously.Nothing’s wrong. Look, don’t panic, don’t go postal. Everything’s fine, but—Roni, tell me what the fuck’s going on. So she told him. As Eli predicted, Marcus exploded. What?
Really, Marcus, I’m fine. It’s okay.They tried to drug and kidnap you! No part of that is ‘okay’ to me! Wait there; I’ll be five minutes.
She refrained from pointing out that he couldn’t possibly complete the journey in five minutes. Make sure you bring the others with you. I brought one of the jackals home for a chat. She ended the call before he could lecture her on bringing home strange shifters that had tried to hurt her.
See, told you he’d lose his shit. Eli, who’d crept up behind her to eavesdrop, didn’t bother hiding his smirk. So she punched him in the gut.She waved away my comment. Doesn’t matter. What matters is...we have power.
First, she took care of us, setting our breaks and doing everything in her ability to make us comfortable, and then, she had the foresight to pack her pockets with things like solar chargers and a waterproof phone?I didn’t care if she said no. I didn’t care that she didn’t want me. I had to have her.
Despite myself, the bitch called hope unwound, reeling me in with tasty bait. Could we be saved, after all?It was never that easy and coming down from a hopeful high was a bloody killer.
