Chapter 159: I and Thee
No one else in the Hedge knew a demon dwelt in the orchard, but Blight made it sound as if Ethan was harboring an enemy. “You misunderstand.”
“You listen. You linger.” Blight glided closer. “You like me.”
Ethan blanched. “You are Fallen. I am Faithful.”
“An interesting contrast. An insider and an outcast.” His eyes glittered. “We should explore our differences.”
The invitation was unthinkable. Shaking his head, the young Guardian retreated. “There is no we.”
“No?” Blight laughed. “I and thee have been a we since you were Sent to me.”
Conrad was calling. Zeke was leaving. Ethan fled.
