I want to go with you, Aiden announced.
"Oh my gosh, sorry!" She stepped back and he fought to catch his breath."Let's head back to the others." Aiden took her hand.
When they walked back into command central Adelaide looked relieved."I am forgiven." Aiden announced to the room."Good, because we were about to kick you out of Alpha and put her in charge." Colton teased.
"Does this mean you'll show me how to use grenades?" Meryn asked.Colton paled. "Maybe not."
"You should be in bed." Adam admonished.
"I'm fine. Meryn has set up everything so that I can keep track of everything from here." Aiden eased down next to Gavriel and watched the cameras.Ryuu chuckled. "You'll soon discover that Meryn often does things that 'just aren't done'." Ryuu poured their tea carefully before stepping back to stand against the wall.
"I do, don't I?" Meryn picked up a small plain cookie and popped it in her mouth before placing one on a napkin on the table. Elizabeth watched in fascination as the cookie lifted all on its own and tiny bite marks appeared.Meryn caught her staring. "That's Felix. He's a sprite that decided to adopt me. He's super sweet, but not everyone can see him," she explained.
Feeling as if she had stepped into an episode of the Twilight Zone, Elizabeth nibbled on a cookie. What had she gotten herself into now?"So what do you do, you know, to support yourself?" Meryn asked.
