She recalled Jared too well.
"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.
"He'll make time for you, Jared," Rhyn assured him.
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.
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.
Logan and Jared were in front of the television, talking about the basketball game.
She didn't see Jared, but she couldn't shake the sense he – or someone else – was following her.
"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.
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.
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.
"You're too little," Jared said.
Jared squatted in front of him, looking more bruised than the last time he saw him.
Jared lay still for a moment before sitting up.
"Lunchmeat," Jared said with a toothy smile.
Jared morphed again into a massive creature.
Jared launched himself at the demon barreling toward them.
Jared, wounded and vulnerable, had been cornered by another demon in its monster shape with drool dripping off its teeth.
Jared was pale and propped against a rock.
"Nature.s not so kind to the weak," Jared said with a grimace as he pushed himself up.
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.
