Chapter 200: Denial
“I am Faithful; you are Fallen!”
Blight’s blue eyes gleamed. “For now.”
“Forever!” Ethan drew his sword. “I am not your friend!”
“When you teeter, I will push you. When you topple, I will catch you.” The demon eased into the apple tree’s shadow. “You will need a friend when grief takes you.”
Ethan froze. “What do you mean?”
“I have watched, and I have waited. Patience has yielded a plan,” boasted Blight as he blurred from view. Only his voice remained, as coy and confident as ever. ‘I know what I want, and I know how to get it.’
