He said nothing, and I could feel Alexander’s stare drilling holes through me.
"So, can I ask you something?" Meryn said turning to Jaxon.He grinned ruefully. "You're going to ask how a shifter can become paralyzed when we can heal so quickly aren't you."
Meryn nodded not even looking embarrassed.Jaxon blinked. "I fell out of a tree when I was very young, before I could shift. Unfortunately it has inhibited my wolf so I'm stuck like this. It doesn't bother you does it? My affliction?" he asked.Elizabeth could only imagine the kind of life he had led living in a predominately shifter city with a handicap.
"Why would it bother me? I'm kinda jealous; you always have a place to sit." Meryn took a huge bite of her breakfast sandwich.Elizabeth swatted at her arm. "Meryn!" she admonished.
"Wha?" Meryn asked with her mouth full.
Jaxon surprised her when he began to laugh. Noah grinned shaking his head. Finally Jaxon spoke. "No one has ever looked at me and seen an advantage. Not once. I wasn't sure how this was going to go, but I'm not above begging. Please let us study with you. We'll do whatever you say. We want to learn how to help the warriors like you do." His eyes blazed with passion."Anyone who can grow up around Aiden and keep his sense of humor can't be all bad," Adam teased.
Meryn turned to Adam. "Speaking of your brother, where on his body would be a safe place to stab him with a fork? Where it would be painful, but wouldn't take long to heal?"Adam brought his hand up to his chin and tapped his finger on his lips as he thought about his answer. "Why don't you tell me, Adair and Ben what he's done and we'll take care of it, after all, that's what brothers are for," he offered.
Rheia had to admit, he handled Meryn fairly well. It was highly unlikely that his brothers would stab Aiden."He forgot to tell me about the two hundred plus warriors living out amongst humans in an inactive status," Meryn said sourly.
