Or it requires me to find said doctor and bring them here.
Zoe stepped around me, her gaze following mine. Did you close it?Clutching my phone harder, I shook my head. No. I didn’t even go near it.
She started for the door, and I quickly followed, practically snapping at her heels. She reached for the door. I started to tell her to stop, but when she turned the handle, the door didn’t budge. It’s locked.What? Not believing her, I shot around her and tried the door myself. She was right. The door was locked. That’s impossible.Well, it’s not impossible. Luxen can unlock doors. That means they could probably lock them, right?
Right. Her gaze searched mine. But why would they do that?I don’t know. I twisted. Those doors were open. I swear.
Zoe didn’t say anything for a long moment and then she charged forward, back toward the front of the house. Let’s check it out.
I didn’t get a chance to protest that possibly unwise life choice, because Zoe was already climbing the steps. Not wanting to be left behind, I quickly caught up with her. Every room was checked, and in less than five minutes we were back downstairs, in the living room.I didn't need my heart anyway, I guess it's safe enough in his pocket.
When they walked into the dining room Meryn was sitting on Aiden's lap laughing and holding up a square pastry to his mouth. The three other men stood.Gavriel walked her to their seats and pulled out her chair. She sat and he scooted her in. He sat down as Meryn continued to fuss at her mate. The men sat down and watched Meryn and their commander.
"No way! You know the rules, if you pick it out, you have to eat it." She swung the pastry back and forth in front of his mouth.Aiden frowned at his mate. "But I didn't smell the wasabi until it was under my nose. You know I hate that stuff, baby." He looked up at Meryn with liquid brown eyes.
