The man in the executioner's hood left while Jilian, the man with midnight hair and eyes, approached.
Jilian wrenched her up.
"Unbound," Jilian said, releasing her.
"If he didn't act, there's a reason," Jilian observed.
Jilian grabbed her again, and she grated her teeth against the visions, staggering as she tried to keep upright.
Jilian snatched her and slammed her onto the table, pinning her in place as he strapped her wrists and ankles in.
"Guess they forgot to tell you I'm immortal," Jilian said and laughed.
Jilian and a few other vamps were down the hall and turned as the stone wall caved.
Jilian met Damian's sword with his own, barking orders to his vamps.
Damian slashed through Jilian, and the vamp dropped.
She sat to pull on shoes and saw the scars around her wrists, evidence of her fight against the bindings Jilian used to strap her onto the table.
Jilian injected me with something to kill me, she paused, shuddering at the flash of residual pain from the memories.
"Jilian killed him," she said.
I saw what Jilian did to him and what you did to Jilian.
"Jilian killed you," he said, wrapping his arms around her in a secure hug.
