Chapter 120: Slipping Away
“You do not belong here!” Ethan repeated, sending Verrill a silent plea for help.
“You deny my place, yet I remain.” The genial rasp continued, “You are the one out of place.”
“My place is assured.”
“Once again, we are the same.” Ethan spun as the Fallen’s voice came more softly. “Will you chase me? Let me lead you.”
Ethan caught sight of members from his Flight circling. “Wait!”
“Your name,” Ethan blurted, wanting to hold him back. “Do you have one?”
With rough-edged sweetness, he replied, “No, for it was blotted out. But you may call me Blight.”
