THE VASE CRASHED AGAINST THE WALL BESIDE MY HEAD.
I force myself to hold still.
Ignore the sharp bite of the new cut across my cheek.
Ignore the blood sliding over skin.
Shrapnel scattered the way my thoughts had moments earlier.
I’d fallen out of love with Jamus months ago, and now, as I plan my
escape, he decides to demand we get married?
As if five years of faked orgasms was a streak I wanted to continue.
He’s woven the particular trap I’m caught in tightly.
And the man with the Power gets what he wants.
But not from me.
I have more than enough money to leave him.
But no banker in the Valley would give it to me.
No landlord would offer me a lease.
No employer would consider my application.
Jamus had shitty aim with priceless vases, but he was descended from
the old gods. His family ruled for generations.
They’ve been feared for generations.
But the rest of the Valley is full of people who don’t know him.
The Power is a faint glimmer behind his eyes, not the dangerous flash in
those whispered stories.
He takes a deep breath, closing his eyes and shoving his hands in his
pockets—as if leaving them loose will only result in more broken ceramics.
“You try my patience, Lily.”
“I’m not going to marry you.”
His eyes flash when he opens them again.
The inherent gifts in his lineage are watered down to the point I’m not
afraid of his anger. He likes to use those visceral signs of the Power to keep
the rest of us in line.
But I know better.
“Goodbye Jamus.” I turn my back on him and see the two men in the
corner shift uneasily.
Maybe they think they’re about to witness a murder.
But Jamus thinks he needs me. He’s not going to kill me until he has
to… or he has my money.
Because that is what this is all about.
He’s days away from bankruptcy.
Not so powerful after all.
Maybe if he sold those vases instead of breaking them….
The lift opens as soon as I press the button and no one stops me from
stepping inside. I ignore the way my hand shakes as I press the button for
“Where are you gonna go, Lily?” Jamus asks as I turn to face him.
“Who in the Valley would take you in?”
And who in this valley would let me leave.
Jamus has never hit me. Before tonight, he’s never even raised his hand
in a moment of anger…. But he has never hesitated to remind me how
many people here owe him.
How many he owns.
I watch him as the lift doors close, hating the smirk that forms on his
He wont keep me from leaving the tower.
Jamus wants me to come crawling back to him. He wants that
It’s a reminder that he controls us all.
But he doesn’t own me.
And there is one last option I haven’t exhausted.
One last door I’d hoped I wouldn’t have to open.
