It would leave her bared to the skin, the cream and gold of her open to his touch. She shivered, and hed had enough of looking. Getting into bed, he came over her and placed his gauntleted arm above her head, then gripped her jaw as shed done his. Open your mouth, he said. I want to taste you.more...

If we go back to sleep, go back to being normal! Beside her, Isaiah shoved his hands into the pockets of his jeans. You can do that. His voice was toneless, his jaw rigid. But its not only the nightmares youd be losing. Face crumpling, Concetta raced off toward her cabin. Jaya glanced after the other woman, a helpless expression on her face.more...

In that caseNikita broke the intensity of the eye contact to face KalebI suggest we begin to buy up devalued stock and allow that to leak. Itll be assumed we know something the populace doesnt, that we might even be purposefully orchestrating the deaths for our own gain. Which, Kaleb thought, would drive those prices right back up. Itll work as a stopgap solution. We need to come up with a strong long-term financial strategy. The lights of San Francisco glittered behind Anthony as he continued to speak. I assume you were responsible for the turnaround earlier today by a conglomerate that sought to gouge profits? An Arrow, Kaleb told them and it was a deliberate reminder of the fourth part of this Ruling Coalition.more...

Everyone in the settlement was safe. Vasics response to her question was brief. Unknown. Releasing an unsteady breath, she shook her head. Theres a good chance one or both of them are dead, isnt there? Yes. No expression on his face, no hint of care, but hed wrapped the distressed teenager in a blanket and brought him here instead of leaving him to the medics on-site.more...

Youre the only man to whom I can bear being beholden, Anthony said. What can I do for you? I need to know the whereabouts of Samuel Rain. Anthonys expression gave nothing away. Hes rumored to be dead. Rumors mean little.more...

Both of them knew that might be a long time coming.        UNABLE to sleep despite the fact shed attended a bad outbreak with Vasic two hours earlier that had come close to wiping her out, Ivy sat up in bed that night and gnawed on the knowledge she could feel just beyond her reach. Ivy, you need to rest. She looked down at Vasic, the light from the streetlamps coming through the thinly opened blinds marking him in tiger stripes. Shhshe bent to press a kiss to his shoulderIm thinking. Rising from bed after a minute, he left the bedroom and came back with a hot nutrient drink.more...

Come on, Rabbitshe threw the stickfetch! As Vasic watched her encourage their ecstatic pet, her delight music in the air, he said, This wasnt meant to be my future, to the man who walked up to join him. Aden had arrived in the city on a high-speed jet-chopper a half hour ago. Now, his partner stood with his gloved hands on either side of the tailored black winter coat he wore open over a suit of the same color, his shirt white. It was camouflage for an urban environment. Are you sorry for the change? No.more...

Nodding, Ivy bit down on her lower lip as she had a habit of doing, her eyes focused on the ground and a vertical line between her eyebrows. What are you thinking? he asked, though he had no right to know. Give me a minute. So close to him that he could reach out and embrace her, she He paused, worked through all the tiny details he knew about her. Would you like me to hold you? he asked, unsure he was correctly reading the subtle cues.more...

That done, he nudged her to the kitchen counter. Make your favorite tea. He knew the taste gave her comfort. I can wait. When they stepped out into the starry night five minutes later, Ivy with her hands cupped around the mug of tea and her feet in snow boots, Rabbit scampered out after them. Giving Vasic her tea to hold, Ivy petted and cuddled the dog before carrying him back to his little bed. Stay here, Rabbit. Its too cold outside for you, he heard her murmur gently, the sound carrying in the stillness of the night. She was with him again soon afterward.more...

Vasic thought of the little noises Ivy made in bed, the way she dug her nails into his back when he touched her just right, and felt his body pulse. I want this for the others, Judd. Their brethren deserved the same happiness, the same steep learning curve anchored in pleasure rather than pain. Judds eyes met his. I never thought youd make it to this point. Im fucking glad you have. Well get the others here, toowere Arrows. We never give up on a target, Vasic completed, and for the first time since hed been taught it, the assertion wasnt one of darkness, but of hope.        IVY and Sascha spent a large chunk of the day visiting and interviewing the nonempathic survivors around the world, thanks to Vasics porting ability, while Jaya and Alice remained at the apartment and collated the data in a search for patterns.more...
