Obsidian Butterfly (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #9) The Rest Falls Away (The Gardella Vampire Chronicles #1)

Aiden looked heavenward. "I still don't understand you!"

Yeah, he was doing that, but I’m . . . I’m okay.He watched me a moment, shook his head, and then pivoted. He started stalking down the hall, and it was then that I realized he was carrying something in his other hand. A cloth—a washcloth.

I peeled myself off the wall and hurried up. I need—Your phone, he interrupted. I know.Okay. I struggled to keep up. His long-legged pace was impressive . . . and annoying. Can I have it?

I need it—I totally need my phone. It belongs to me.Luc kept walking, and I just—I just lost it.

Leftover adrenaline from being thrown against a wall mingled with the frustration burning at my skin like a swarm of fire ants. Snapping forward, I grabbed his arm and stopped him. In the distant part of my mind I knew that he had allowed me to do that. That if he had wanted to keep walking, he would’ve and then simply dragged me behind him. But I didn’t care that he could throw me down the hall with a flick of his wrist if he wanted to.

I’m not leaving here until I have my phone.A huge part of me couldn’t believe I was actually doing this. I hadn’t told Luc I would last night. For all I knew, he might not even be here.

Knowing that, I was still here.Drawing in a shallow breath, I lifted my hand, but before I could touch the red doors, one of them inched open. Gasping, I took a step back. I’d expected to see Clyde. That wasn’t who I got an eyeful of.

Luc stood just inside the entryway to Foretoken.He wasn’t completely dressed.
