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.
More pain than Jared but less than Khakhala.
"Hey Lunchmeat," the pale man, Jared, called.
"Wouldn't matter if you were," Jared said, unconcerned.
"I like you, Lunchmeat," Jared continued.
Jared exclaimed, hanging his hands through the bars in his cell.
"Lunchmeat's still kicking," Jared said.
You could get one of us out, Jared said.
"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.
Jared moved away from the door into the hall to face his opponent.
Jared.s form contorted then grew twice his size as he shifted into a creature unlike any she.d ever seen.
The maid lunged at her again, and she darted for the kitchen, followed by Jared.s blood monkey, who was wailing with frustration.
Jared changed to his human form and held up one hand, holding his back with the other.
"I.m sure we.ll be able to beat each other to a pulp again sometime," Jared continued.
"And … AND," Jared rushed on, holding up both hands, "he stole something from the Dark One, something that makes demons immune to Immortal powers.
"Oh, my," Jared said.
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.
