(Skyla’s POV, Skyla with her birth mother Candace)
My mother lights up like a lantern from the inside, her hair blowing back alive and electric.
“Logan is a visitor”—her chin lifts, mystified by my constant state of grief—“nothing more than a hologram you can touch.”
My knees give way, and I land on the floor weak as paper. “You just keep killing him.”
“You just won’t let him die.”
(Gage’s POV, Gage with Wesley)
“I’m pretty sure I’m going to kick your ass.”
His chest bucks with a silent laugh. “Wouldn’t that be a little like kicking your own ass?”
“No, it’ll be like kicking your ass, and I’ll make sure you feel it.”
“Try it but know I’ll fight back. By the way, I’m not into bruising—I’m into disfiguring. I’d like nothing more than inverting your baby blues, pulling your vocal cords out through your nose, so think twice before you threaten me.” He pulls me in by the shirt until we’re nose to nose. “Don’t you ever forget who I am and what I can do.” He shoves me into the wall before turning away.
I don’t waste a moment before kicking his feet out from under him.
*Logan and Coop, watching Wes from a distance.
“He’s here, huh?”
“Apparently, so. It’s giving Laken some anxiety, but she’s a strong girl. I’m not too worried. I told her if he tries something to invert his jewels and show him who’s in charge. Hell, I might knock his balls in myself.” Coop’s brows peak as two other guys dressed in black suits approach Wes. “There’s an underground society the frats are forever spinning urban legends about—The Blood of the Dragon. It wouldn’t surprise me if Wes is campaigning. And if he gives them enough cash, he’ll be running it in a week.”
“What the hell would he want with a bunch of college goofs? He’s a little busy culling the dross from the Counts, isn’t he?”
“Who knows, maybe he’s scouting new recruits.”
Shit. “Human recruits.”
