Halloween’s coming. Do you do anything special to celebrate?
I have three kids so we decorate the front entrance with spooky light up pumpkins, moving bats and flickering candles. out side we make a graveyard in the grass.
Leah’s eyes widened as she arched off the bed. “The rooms going dark. Am I going blind?”
Riley wrapped her hand, giving it a gentle squeeze. “You’re seeing the shadows. This is our world, the way we travel the pathways.”
Leah relaxed into the bed. “My insides feel like someone’s taking a blowtorch to them.”
“That sounds about right. By the end of my transition, I prayed for death. I wish there was something I could do to help you,” Riley said.
“You’re doing it. The sound of your voice is soothing. It reminds me of my sister.” She groaned. “If I don’t make it, Riley. Promise me you’ll protect my sister. She’s all my parents have left.”
Riley leaned towards Leah. “I promise, but your strong. You will make it through this.”
The slight hum included Ferguson’s arrival. He coalesced so quickly; it was like a magician performing a trick. He moved to the side of the bed, looking over Leah. “When did this happen?”
Riley glanced up at him, but her heart stuttered when she saw his eyes. There was no mistaking what Ferguson believed would happen. “An hour ago, but the scratch was so small, we…”
“The size of the wound is irrelevant. Once the venom hits a human’s blood, it’s over.”
Riley clutched the bedspread with one hand. “Deruthel told her it was too late. He knew he’d scratched her. He did it on purpose.”
Ferguson’s gaze remained locked on Leah’s twitching form. “Yes.”
Riley stood, moving around the bed to Ferguson’s side. “You look worried, and I get the impression that’s rare.”
“I don’t want you to get your hopes up.”
“Leah has priestess blood. The same as me and Dannika.”
Ferguson shook his head. “It’s not the same as you and your sister, and you weren’t infected by a demon general.”
Riley glanced at Leah. “His venom is stronger?”
Ferguson glanced at Colton. “You already know that. If an alpha shadow cannot heal with Deruthel’s blood in his veins, then you have to understand the consequences of this transition.”
“What are you saying?”
“The demon in her is too strong,” Ferguson said.
