Chapter 282: In the Treetop
Zeke confidently swung up onto the branch where Blight had lodged his bait.
“Willingly, thrillingly,” the demon chanted. “Foolishly, mulishly.”
Ethan couldn’t stop what had been set into motion, but Blight wouldn’t have the last word. “Think, Zeke,” he countered. “You do not need to win this game. The prize will not be worth the price.”
The boy paused before stepping onto the barren limb. Glancing back, then down at the river below, he promised, “I’ll hold on tight.”
If only Ethan could make him understand. It doesn’t matter how tenaciously you hold onto something if it’s the wrong thing.
