Jared motioned to the living room.
Logan and Jared were in front of the television, talking about the basketball game.
Jared scrambled out of the way, but Logan wasn't so lucky.
Jared was a thorn in Darkyn's side, but he was also a friend of the half-demon Rhyn.
It was respect for this usefulness that kept Jared from feeling the brunt of Darkyn's anger.
"I went over the beach house with a fine-toothed comb," Jared said.
"Are you sure …" At Darkyn's glare, Jared ducked his gaze and fell silent.
"I need a distraction, Jared, to keep the Immortals out of my hair," Darkyn said.
Jared bowed his head and fled, well aware of the power of the demon lord's fury.
She didn't see Jared, but she couldn't shake the sense he – or someone else – was following her.
She recalled Jared too well.
"Good enough," the creature down the hall, Jared, said with a loud sigh.
"I heard Sasha's getting promoted by You Know Who," Jared continued.
"He'll make time for you, Jared," Rhyn assured him.
Jared broke the predatory silence.
"My left arm for a bite…" Jared groaned.
You could get one of us out, Jared said.
The monster across the hall was no option, and Jared was little better.
This is the only place immortal pets can't get you, or anyone else, Jared theorized.
"Less pain," Jared reminded her as she passed.
Jared shouted at last.
"You better run," Jared advised.
"Farewell, Lunchmeat," Jared called in resignation.
"Hello, Lunchmeat," the demon Jared said, smiling slowly.
Jared turned to see the woman on the other side of the kitchen, and Katie bolted.
Panic churned within her, and she was about to cry out for Rhyn when Jared snagged her arm.
Jared kicked the fractured pieces of door out of the way.
Rhyn.s voice made her heart skip a beat, and she craned her neck to see past Jared, who whirled.
"Now, wait, half-brother," Jared said.
There was truth in everything Jared said.
He knew Jared well enough after all their years in Hell together to understand the creature was too narcissistic to care about another.s issues.
If anything, Jared wanted just what he said: a good snack on his way to find more good snacks.
Jared asked, the confidence in his voice replaced by unease.
Jared limped after him and appeared beside him on the cliff edge, taking in the morning view of grey skies and green forest with a look of distaste.
Jared.s senses were more acute than his, and he turned to face the direction of the castle.
Go. Remind Jared what happens if he disobeys me.
Toby looked up as the familiar demon named Jared passed his cell, trailed by two demons carrying a body with another familiar face.
"Hello, my Immortal Twinkies," Jared said, his slender form pausing in the hallway between them.
"I'll get right on that," Jared said and rolled his eyes.
I heard the demons talking about it when I was in the lab. Jared is a glorified prisoner.
I plan on eating every part of you, down to your bones, Jared snapped and bared his teeth.
"You're too little," Jared said.
