Rough and Tumble, Chapter 158: Lulled

Chapter 158: Lulled

Ethan had formed numerous impressions of the person standing before him. Clever. Cautious. Blight was given to acerbic remarks. Bitter. Ironic. Had Ethan grown too accustomed to his quarry’s voice? Passive. Patient. He stared guardedly at one whose light had gone dim. Slender. Smiling. Any sense of security had clearly been false. “You are my enemy.”

Lusterless black hair hung raggedly around bony shoulders. Pointed ears and frayed stitching marked him as a former Observer. Blight stared back with eyes in a shade of blue that hinted at former glories. Lively. Lovely. Head shaking, he replied, “I am your secret.”
