He glanced at me, and who knew what he saw in my face, but he strung together an impressive string of f-bombs before hitting the brakes.
I started to frown. I had no idea where she was going with this.Laadan clasped her hands together. Colin…Colin’s body is missing.
I don’t remember the walk back to the main Covenant building, but I knew the minute Alexander had found Seth, because he suddenly appeared beside me in the stairwell, frightening Laadan so badly she would’ve fallen down the stairs if Seth hadn’t caught her arm.Sorry, he said, steadying her before turning to me. I just heard.All I could do was shake my head. I had no idea what to say. How in the world did Colin’s body disappear? We were heading to Marcus’s office and I was hoping he could shine some light on what happened.
Do you think someone took it? I winced as Laadan walked ahead. I mean, took his body?Someone had to. He placed his hand on my lower back. His features were drawn. Why, I have no idea.
We were silent as we walked the rest of the way. Marcus was on the phone when we entered his office, his head bowed and his fingers pinching at the skin between his brows. Shortly after we arrived, Alex and Aiden joined us while Laadan lingered near Marcus’s desk, her expression tight with concern.
Where’s Erik? Seth asked as I stood next to him.I shook my head, laughing, kicking off my shoes. You know, I’m not even going to try to guess. I’ve learned my lesson when it comes to you and surprises.
Except when they involve rockets and payloads of shooting stars?I laughed. Yeah. I sank into the nearest petal-covered chair with a sigh. I’m so tired. So much hot sex all night long…
Adam toed off his own shoes and left the vest and tie on the nearby dresser before moving over to the bed to sit down on it and stare at me.You are gorgeous. Have I told you yet?
