Holding Up the Universe Only the Good Spy Young (Gallagher Girls #4)

And then the woman turned over on her other side, and promptly passed out.

Thank you, I managed to say to Maven. I owe you one.Maven shook her head. No, you don’t. If you were to get pregnant—someday—we would all benefit.

Before Now (Sometimes Never #2)

At that moment, the burner phone buzzed in my pocket, making me jump. I dug it out and looked at the screen, which displayed my own cell phone number, the one for the Batphone. At least Jesse was okay.I was about to ignore it, but it occurred to me that he wouldn’t be calling from this number if it wasn’t urgent. I answered the phone. Hey. This isn’t a great time—Scarlett? Oh, thank God. It wasn’t Jesse’s voice. It was Kirsten, and she sounded panicked. I don’t know where you are, but you need to get home, right now.

The Crystal Shard (The Icewind Dale Trilogy #1)

Fear churned the few contents of my stomach. What happened? Where’s Jesse?I had a witch problem, and Dashiell said Jesse was covering for you, she said in a rush. He wasn’t answering the emergency line or his personal cell, and I got worried, so I had Abby track your phone and then I saw the missed call—

Kirsten, slow down! Where’s Jesse?

He’s right here, she said, her voice almost a sob. But he’s been attacked. I think he’s dying.Then Jesse got it. He closed his eyes, feeling like a fool.

He’s calling the women’s prison in Chino, Scarlett said. She’d put it together too. That’s where they’re holding the Luparii scout, Petra Corbett.Hayne hung up the phone and turned back to them, looking grim. Not anymore, he said heavily. She broke out three hours ago.

Magic Gifts (Kate Daniels #5.4)

A little over an hour after Jesse woke up, I sat watching as Dashiell stalked back and forth next to the enormous oval table in his atrium, his lips compressed with anger. I opened my mouth to say . . . something . . . but Will gave me a quick little headshake, and I snapped it closed again.Earlier that evening, while I was still rushing home from the airport to break the hex on Jesse, Petra Corbett had walked out of the minimum-security area at the California Institution for Women . . . despite the fact that she had been lodged in a higher-security level. According to sources from both Jesse and Dashiell, the prison was currently scrambling to figure out how Petra Corbett had ended up on the completely wrong side of the prison. But it didn’t really matter to us at this point. She was gone.

Hayne had been the one to call Dashiell, who had immediately summoned us to the mansion. Now Will, Beatrice, and Kirsten were all sitting at one end of the oval table, while Jesse and I had taken the first two seats on the long side. Dashiell was pacing on the opposite long side, and I, for one, was really glad for the minor safety of the table between us. I was expanding my radius just a bit to keep everyone human, but I wasn’t sure if that was helping or fueling Dashiell’s rage.The cardinal vampire had been pacing for ten minutes already, and it was nearly five in the morning, which meant we only had about an hour before sunrise. Every minute that went by without him speaking felt like a ratcheting up of tension.

And yet . . . I felt strangely calm. Seeing Jesse almost die had snapped me out of my pregnancy-news frenzy, forcing me to be present for the current crisis. Shadow, whom I loved, was missing, and we were facing an unspecified threat from some very bad people. I could put the whole abortion thing aside until we found Shadow and stopped the Luparii.You left town without telling us, Dashiell finally ground out, though he didn’t bother to slow down or even look at me. Yeah, I think we all knew who he was talking to. You invaded another cardinal vampire’s territory. You left the bargest with a human. The Luparii, who are back in my city, stole the bargest back and broke Petra Corbett out of prison. And now they’re all loose in my city. He finally stopped, turning to glower at me, and spat out, You irresponsible child.

Jesse sat up straighter, about to defend me. I reached for his hand under the table and squeezed it to stop him.I made a mistake, I said to Dashiell. Despite the two-hour nap with Jesse, I was more exhausted than ever. I’m sorry.
