The garage was labeled CARRIAGE HOUSE—Bloodkin sure liked fancy names and titles—and there seemed to be a small office inside. Emerson knocked on the door, and then tried the handle. Happy day, there was her driver with his feet up on a table watching television, a soda in hand.
“If we can be on the road in thirty seconds,” she said, “I’ll give you five hundred dollars.” Company money.
Her driver stood and grabbed his coat from the back of his chair.
“That won’t be necessary,” Thane said behind her. “I’ll drive.”
The driver looked crestfallen. Emerson felt the same way. How had Thane crept up so quietly?
“That’s very kind of you, Mr. Ealdian,” she said, jerking a nod at her driver to get him moving, “but I have a ride.”
Her driver took a step toward the garage door.
“It’s Thane,” he told her, then turned to the driver. “Five thousand dollars for you to sit back down again.”
Emerson scowled at the driver as he wavered a second, stepped back, and then traitorously lowered his butt back onto his seat.
She held out her hand to the driver. “Give me the keys.”
“Emerson, you have to come with me,” Thane said in that scary low tone of his.
No, she didn’t.
The driver put the keys in her hand. She might forgive him, after all.
Taking the side door into the garage—six cars were neatly situated side by side—she pressed the fob to locate hers.
“Can I help you?” came a voice from the back. Some Carriage House servant maybe?
“I just need my car, thanks,” she called.
“Emerson.” Thane took her arm. “Someone killed my wife and son.”
Like a slap, the truth of the statement hit her. His wife and son. If dragons were real, maybe he was directly related to remains that were six hundred years old.
She froze in place, suddenly uncertain.
Those remains had been his family. Someone had murdered them. Like her, Thane had been left alone in the world. He was in pain. She didn’t understand the Bloodkin, but that much she knew. Oh, God. She was such a pushover.
She turned to him, and for the first time, really looked at him. Thane Ealdian’s eyes were as full of feeling as a stormy sky. The indigo color flickered with firelight from within, the vertical pupils like upheld daggers. His expression was drawn tight over features that were rough in their beauty—that full, tensed mouth, high cheekbones defined by such strain, brows angled with tension. His was the face of a desperate, angry…well, dragon.
As close as he was, towering over her, broad shoulders blocking the door, she was acutely aware of him as a man. Had she actually laughed at him once?
She couldn’t help shaking. “Look, I don’t know how you think I can help you. I have no idea what’s going on.”
“And no idea where you came from, either.”
“Ignorance is bliss.” She was sure of it now.
He gave her a circumspect once-over, and his gaze felt like a scorching sun on exposed skin. “No, not for you. You’re Bloodkin through and through.”
“Look, I don’t even think I am Bloodkin. I think there was a mistake. I don’t feel like a dragon.” She mostly suppressed a hysterical laugh. “And I don’t want to. That shift was horrible.”
“It didn’t have to be,” Thane said. “The shift is usually…rapturous. Fast and hot. Freedom you can’t imagine until you’ve taken to the sky. You’ve got the Blood. I’ve seen the dragon in your eyes.” He paused. “No, don’t shake your head. I have.”
“I would know if I were a dragon.” She’d said the same thing to Bryan.
Thane pulled her even closer, and heat the likes of which she’d never known—velvet, caressing, sensual—moved over her skin. “And what will you do when the dragon grows stronger? When the Night Song touches you.”
So close. Too close. “Night Song?”
He leaned down, mouth to her ear. “My lady, the night will call to you. How will you fight it? When it’s time, how will you get to the safety of Havyn without the aid of the Bloodkin?”
She dropped her gaze to the concrete floor, still shaking her head. She didn’t believe it, couldn’t. Night Song? Havyn?
And damn, it was so hot in here. She tried to put a little space between them.
Thane allowed her an inch. “Hic sunt dracones,” he said. “Here be dragons. It’s on a few very old maps but is nevertheless difficult to find.”
She dared to look Thane in his extraordinary eyes. So what if it sent electric shocks along her nerves? “I was very graphically warned that I would die if I continued with the mediation.” Specifically, if she didn’t say the remains belonged to the Heolstors, which apparently, they didn’t. “A man killed himself in front of me.”
“You’re not a coward,” Thane said, his upper lip curling with satisfaction. Why did he keep saying that? “Nor easily bullied.”
Bullied. She hadn’t thought of it that way, but, yes, someone had tried to bully her, and in the worst way possible. How stupid of her not to realize it.
“I’m terrified,” she admitted
“Not the same thing as being a coward.”
“I saw a dragon today.” She wasn’t over it. Not nearly.
Thane smiled. “And wasn’t he magnificent? You should see one sky bound.”
Her heart lost its beat. “Are you going to kill me?”
His smile faded and he gave a reluctant shrug. “I hope not. I’m near my final shift, too. I can only promise I’ll keep my distance when the Night Song tempts me.”
It wasn’t much of an assurance, but she really did like how honest he was. Lots of crazy, but no bullshit.
“I still don’t know how I can help you,” she said.
“Think,” he told her. “You’re the keystone in the bridge between me and the one who murdered my family.”
That sounded ominous.
He leaned in again. “Who seems to know more about you than you know about yourself?”
Emerson thought back. There was no one in her life who knew… Wait. “Mr. Fraser.” He’d even admitted to being another messenger. And he’d called her, my lady. Which had been weird coming from him.
Thane pulled back a smile, fierce and feral, his lightning eyes flashing. “That’s where we’ll start.”
