Night’s Rising Sample Chapter
Sam stepped out of the bathroom and back into the main room of their hotel. His mind free of turmoil, it was time to discuss their next move.
“You okay?” Anna asked as he reemerged.
“Yeah, I just needed a minute to clear my head,” he assured her.
“What’s our next move?” She asked as he reached her side. Rather than answer her, he drew her into his arms and held her close for a moment, brushing her forehead with a light kiss. When he drew back, his eyes locked with hazel ones that had turned gray.
“Are you okay?” he asked seeing her fear.
“Yeah, I just went a round with Ares,” she muttered.
At the words Sam let her go and looked her over for injury. “What happened?”
“It wasn’t like that. He’s just taunting me. Making it pretty clear that despite whatever deal he made with Lance, he has designs for Catharine still.” Anna explained.
“Yeah I’m not surprised there; I figured that a deal made with a fallen wouldn’t end well,” Sam grumbled.
“What are we going to do?” Anna asked.
“We’ll deal with Lance in a minute, first we need to get people on their way and figure out what we can do to stop these four want-to-be gods from jump starting the apocalypse,” Sam whispered.
Anna nodded her understanding as Sam drew her back to his side. He watched as the others in the room moved away from each other and in his direction, all but Lance, he stayed at Catharine’s side. That was just fine by Sam, he didn’t want Ares privy to whatever plans they set in motion.
“All right yank quiet times over, what are we gonna do?” Terra demanded, her green eyes sharp and cold.
