I cant let you go, Penn snapped. Why wont you get that through your thick skull? If you want to be free of this curse, Ill be more than happy to set you free, but Ill have to kill you. Is that what you want? Do you want to die?
Gemma wanted to hit her, but she kept her hands at her sides. She had a feeling that Penn was a lot more dangerous than she looked, and she didnt really want to ignite her wrath. At least not yet.I dont think you know as much as you think you know.
Like what? Penn laughed drily.You said that it wasnt possible for guys to really love a siren, Gemma said. But Alex cares about me, the real me.Penns eyes flashed hard and her smile vanished.
That just shows how young and stupid you are, she hissed. Alex is what, seventeen? Eighteen? Hes a teenage boy with raging hormones. You think he gives a damn about you? She laughed darkly. Look at you! Youre gorgeous, and thats all that matters to him.You dont know him, and you dont know me. Gemma glared at her. You picked the wrong girl. I will find a way out of this. I will undo your stupid curse, and Ill set myself free.
You are so ungrateful! Penn shook her head, tossing her long black hair around her. A curse? This is everything youve ever wanted, Gemma. I saw you. The water has been calling to you your whole life. She stepped so close she stood right in front of Gemma. I gave you everything you wanted. You should be thanking me.
I didnt ask for this! Gemma shot back. And I dont want it!Daniel glanced down at his outfit. He wore a flannel shirt with the sleeves rolled up over a faded Led Zeppelin T-shirt, and his jeans had a hole in the knee.
At least I put a shirt on, Daniel teased. Harper had once commented on the fact that he never wore a shirt, or so it seemed whenever she saw him on his boat.Hello again, Daniel, Brian said, walking up behind Harper.
Im sorry for your loss, Mr. Fisher. Daniel stepped away from the tree and held out his hand.Brian shook it quickly and nodded. Thanks, he said. Did you know Bernie well?
