“D about this?” Selly shouted, striding into the House Phel
library without knocking—the doors hadn’t been warded or magically
locked—and shocking her brother by smacking the letter onto his desk.
“And good morning to you, too, Seliah,” Nic said drily, sitting back
from whatever she’d been working on and looking her over. As Lady Phel,
Nic had a desk near her husband’s. They almost always—unless one of
them was unconscious or had been abducted, which was admittedly a fair
chunk of their marriage so far—convened in the library after breakfast to
handle house business together. They’d been easy to find.
“Hi, Nic,” Selly said, searching her heart for some polite chagrin. Nope,
none to be found. She was too pissed. “Apologies for the intrusion,” she
“You’re family, not an intrusion,” Nic replied easily, her brilliant
emerald gaze going to Gabriel consideringly as he read the letter, measuring
her wizard, no doubt, with her acutely attuned familiar’s senses.
Selly didn’t need any magical help assessing Gabriel’s emotional state.
Not that she had any clue how to be a familiar of Nic’s education and
caliber. She did know her brother, though. The flush on his dusky skin
revealed his embarrassment at the contents of the note she’d slapped on his
desk, while his snapping wizard-black eyes showed growing annoyance.
“What’s the meaning of this?” he demanded in turn.
With an exasperated sigh, Selly snatched the fine paper from his loose
grasp. “Here, let me help you.” For Nic’s benefit, she read aloud Jadren’s
crisply inked, meticulous handwriting. Even while ruthlessly jilting her, he
hadn’t betrayed the slightest emotional tremor in a single stroke of his pen.
“No, I didn’t fuck you senseless. That was the potion I put in your wine. I
said as soon as you’re safe, I’d take you to bed. You’ll never be safe while
you’re with me, so… I’m gone. Don’t bother looking as I won’t be found.
Don’t shed any girlish tears over me. Just go on with your life. It’s the best
revenge and you deserve that much. ~J”
She flung down the sheet of paper again and Nic rose, gracefully
retrieving it to read herself with pursed lips while Selly glared at Gabriel. “I
ask you again—did you know about this?”
“Which part?” he snapped back, rising from his chair and steepling his
fingers on the desk, looming over her. Selly was tall, but her brother was
taller. Plus his potent wizard-magic intimidated her now far more than she
liked. Spending time with Jadren—also a wizard—had increased her
sensitivity to magic, especially since he’d bonded her as his familiar.
Gabriel’s felt like a gathering storm, prickling her with the animal urge to
take shelter. She overrode it and stood firm.
“The part where,” Gabriel continued on a low growl, “Jadren—I assume
that’s the ‘J’ of this missive—references fucking my baby sister senseless?
Or the part where he confesses to drugging you? Or…” His voice rose to a
near shout. “Or the part where—”
“Gabriel!” Nic said sharply.
