“Kai, stay here.”
Kai wore his obstinate face, the one that said, “Don’t mess with me.” The face that said, “You’re only my sister and you aren’t in charge.”
Technically she was. Their parents were missing, held by an agent of Hell, and at fifteen Eve was four years older than Kai—in her book, that left her in charge.
“Eve, I’m a kid, not an idiot. Mom and Dad are in there being used in some kind of ritual that kills people, aren’t they? I’m not waiting out here.” He thrust his jaw out and crossed his arms.
Eve turned to Randon. Even in their current dire circumstances, she couldn’t quite ignore the fact that he was too attractive to be hanging out with her—not that she was complaining. He had a Hollywood face and a body to match. More importantly, he was two years older than she was and had one year of magic under his belt, while she had only just discovered her powers. Randon’s face was tense, hard. His eyes narrowed. His father threatened inside also.
“What do you think, Randon?” Eve asked.
“Kai’s probably just as safe with us as out here by himself. He’ll just follow us in.”
Leave her brother outside alone and defenseless, or keep him close? Magic, her parent’s lives in danger, an evil wraith trying to free monsters from Hell—life was a little too weird.
