“How could you lose the girl, Slaugh?”
Leap winced as the woman shrieked pierced his ear—he tugged on the thread
of wind a little, moving it away from his ear so her rage wouldn’t deafen him.
Perched on one of the castle towers, he had a perfect view of the courtyard
below, and more importantly, the quarrel taking place.
It had only been a few hours since he, Einar, and Mavlyn had stormed Castle
Kaipei to rescue Adara. Leap hadn’t witnessed what had taken place inside
the castle—he’d been too busy distracting the guards outside, dropping
bombs on the battlements and hurling lightning bolts at the soldiers while
Mavlyn and Einar had flown in through an open window. He’d taken shelter
in a nearby cave and waited for a sign from his friends—Einar was supposed
to send up a smoke signal from the nearby forest—but he’d yet to see
anything, so he’d snuck back to the castle, intending to find out what had
“I apologize, my lady,” Slaugh said in a low voice Leap would have been
unable to hear if not for his ability to eavesdrop with the wind. The general’s
posture was subservient—head bowed, shoulders rounded, looking for all the
world like a dog with his tail tucked between his legs. You would have
thought he was cowering before some mighty beast, ready to rip his jugular
out with her fangs.
Instead, he stood before a willowy female Leap had never seen before. Leap
narrowed his eyes as he studied her. She was tall, with glossy, dark green hair
and coppery skin. And though she wasn’t Slaugh’s height, she carried herself
as if she was—chin raised, chest out, shoulders back, a proud tilt to her head
that proclaimed her better than everyone and everything else, that the only
commonality they shared was that they both walked the same earth, and
breathed the same air.
He knew the type very well, and he loathed them. But it wasn’t any of these
things that scared him. It was her eyes that gave him the heebie-jeebies—they
were pure black, like the surface of a frozen lake at midnight, with not even a
hint of white at the edges. Impenetrable, unfathomable, unknowable.
And undoubtedly full of dark magic.
“Your apologies are worthless,” the female snapped, folding her arms over
her chest. Twilight crept into the sky behind her, suffusing the deep, velvet
blue with pearly hints of dawn. Leap knew he couldn’t stay for long—they
would spot him for sure once the sun rose—but he needed to know what
happened, where his friends were.
