Sweet (Contours of the Heart #3) Valentine's Rising (Vampire Earth #4)

Great. Five thirty at your mom and dad’s, Brie reminded Lex. Don’t forget this time.

No, m— He cleared his throat. Scarlett.Thank you. Tell me the truth. Are you afraid of vampires?

Christmas at the Cupcake Café (At the Cupcake Café #2)

He bristled. That’s the wrong word, he said after a measured pause. I am not afraid of sharks, as a concept, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to carve a few gashes in my skin and jump into the Pacific.I shot him a skeptical look. Yeah, but in this analogy, you work for the shark.Yeah, yeah. I held up a hand. You work for Hayne. So why did he send you, if you’re skittish around the Old World?

The Dragon Who Loved Me (Dragon Kin #5)

Because he trusts me, Cliff said simply.That actually made more sense than just about anything else he might have said. Hayne owed me; I had saved his humanity. He wouldn’t send anyone he didn’t trust completely. And because he doesn’t know that the vampires . . . concern me, Cliff went on, looking a little sheepish. It hasn’t come up, with me working only the day shift.

Great. My backup was afraid of what he was supposed to be protecting me from. I pushed out a breath. I would have to make the best of it. Well, you’re with me. There are no vampires within a few feet of me, okay? We go in, we look, we get out. As long as you stay close, anything that comes at us can die.

He nodded, his impassive expression suddenly looking just the tiniest bit relieved. I’m left-handed, he offered. Stay on my right, so I can shoot.I knew it, because they were the exact words I’d fantasized about someone saying to me, just before Grams would arrive to rescue me.

She turned toward me. Thank you for coming to get us.I wasn’t sure I could trust my voice, but I said, You’re very welcome.

Vampire World I: Blood Brothers (Necroscope #6)

You’re going to get more kids out, right? she asked. Not just us?Everyone, I reassured her, leaning my head back against the seat and closing my eyes. It was the only way I knew of to keep from crying. It was more than just a possibility. We had done this. We could do it again at Thurmond. We could make this moment everyone’s reality. Every single kid.

Zach brought the bus into the garage as Cole had instructed. The kids who’d stayed behind were there, opening the large, rolling door we’d kept shut and locked the whole time we’d used the space. Senator Cruz and Cole stood a way inside; the woman had her hands folded in front of her, and while she seemed otherwise serene, even from a distance, I could see the white-knuckled hold she had on herself. I pulled back the curtain and leaned away, so Rosa could see her as well. The senator must have spotted her at that exact moment, because she lost the fight she’d been waging to control herself and ran for the bus’s doors, just as I stood to let Rosa pass. The girl launched herself at her mother from the top step, and nearly took them both to the ground.The other kids looked away. We’d explained, on the drive back to California, what had happened in Los Angeles. And knowing that many of their parents had been involved in the Federal Coalition, or had simply lived in the area, hadn’t sugarcoated the harsh reality.

But we’ll help you find them, I’d promised. If Senator Cruz doesn’t know for certain where they are, we’ll try searching the different networks for clues.Cole had remained where he was, nodding to the team members who came down from the bus, slapping their backs and proudly congratulating them as they spilled out and formed a cluster around him. There was a backpack at his feet, but he didn’t reach for it, not until Liam and Alice finally exited the bus. I knew what was about to happen, but frankly, I was too damn pissed off myself to try to prevent it.

He signaled to Senator Cruz. With Rosa still pressed against her side, she said calmly, All right, everyone, follow me. We’ll get you a nice warm shower, some new clothes, and a good meal. How does that sound?Liam and the Amplify reporter had their path toward us cut off as the Oasis kids streamed by, forming a line that followed the senator to the tunnel down, passing Zu, Hina, Mike, and Kylie, who’d come running to meet us. They joined the group of kids who had been left behind here, standing on the white crescent moon painted onto the cement.
