Excerpt & More
Everything hurt, again. She had just healed from what Darien had done and now there was this. A chunk of skin was absent from her wrist, exposing the bone. She was pretty sure that a few ribs were broken, and the wrist with the exposed bone was probably broken as well.
There was a large wound on her shoulder that extended to her spine, and there were scratches everywhere from where their claws had dug into her.
She felt blood trickling down her neck, but she didn’t think the teeth had done too much damage, and if they had then she would be dead shortly.
The more she moved, the harder it was to breathe, so she gasped and sputtered; coughing up blood.
Where was she going to go? In cases of an extreme emergency, she did sometimes go to a hospital, but as soon as she was healed enough she would discharge herself.
Now that she was clothed, she got into the front seat, but she didn’t really have the strength to drive anywhere. She was either going to sit there and heal or bleed out.
She jumped when her door opened and she saw Alek standing there. He must have been there to finish her off. “So that’s why they stopped? You wanted the glory?”
Alek looked over her wistfully. His eyes were sad and sunken in. “I didn’t want this. It’s Isabel, isn’t it?”
She cringed and shook her head. No one called her that. “No, it’s Izzy.”
He was supposed to be the good guy. He hated that he was becoming the villain; he wanted nothing to do with it. “Well, Izzy, I just put a tracker on your car. You’re supposed to lead us straight to your father, but since the tracker is on your car and not on you, I suggest that you drive for as long as you can, abandon your car, and then call an ambulance.”
She was confused. Why was he telling her this? He was the bad guy, wasn’t he? He wanted her father dead. Alek had tortured Blake and Melina. She’d had half a mind to kill them all even if she wasn’t really capable of it. “Why are you helping me?”
“Because you’re an innocent. Blake Auckley and Melina Collins have both done things to warrant revenge, terrible things. You’ve done nothing as far as I can tell.” Alek had never let innocent people get caught in the crossfire. Normally, he would have had the power over his clan to stop them from doing such things, but they wanted Blake desperately. He couldn’t stop them because everyone was suspicious of Alek’s intentions toward Melina. He couldn’t decide whether he wanted to kill her or save her.
“If you were a decent man you would leave them alone. She’s human now; she can’t do anything to you.” Her eyes widened. Had she really just told him that? The loss of blood was going straight to her head. She’d forgotten who she was with. “Oh God.”
Alek was shocked by the news. He blinked a few times as he absorbed the information, but he wasn’t going to use it. He wouldn’t be able to live with himself knowing that he’d caused this poor girl more damage. “They have two options; to stay where they are or to move somewhere else permanently. Tell them not to travel too much. It’s not safe.”
