Excerpt

She’d just told him the most amazing tale, and now she wanted him to leave her to face danger alone…

A shadowy figure sat on the table. A small flame appeared in the darkness as the silhouetted intruder lit a cigarette. “That’s it. I’m getting you out of here,” Marie said. She grabbed Parker by the arm and led him away from the picnic table.

Marie blasted another jolt of blue light into the woman, who collapsed to the ground, jets of white smoke swirling across her limp body.

A voice called out from behind them. “You have nowhere to run, outsider.” Its tone was cold and mocking. Parker turned to look, but Marie nudged him forward. “Get in the car,” she barked.

This was not a request.

“But what about you?” he asked when he reached the car door and opened it. “I’ll be fine, just go.” “Who is that?” “That’s Seth. I’ll explain later. Just go.”

Why couldn’t she just come with him? She didn’t have to stay and fight. They could make their escape together. He was about to ask her to get into the car when Seth loomed behind her. “He’s behind you!”

Marie whirled around. Seth took a long drag on his cigarette, the orange ember intensifying in the darkness. The small fire pulled away from his pale face, and he exhaled. “Stop this foolishness, Marie. You can take your charge and run to the four corners of the earth, and I’ll still be there, waiting.”
