The manor house had been built several hundred years ago, and every room but hers was a reflection of her father's wealth.

Her father stood in the doorway of the house, framed against the light of the foyer.
She drove the winding roads from her father's manor through County Clare and south towards the Cliffs of Moher to Doolin, one of her favorite day trips.
Your father called, Yully!
She shook off the rain in the doorway and crossed to the small booth near the bar that she and her father usually shared.
She peeled off the thick coat and draped it over one bench before seating herself facing the door, as her father had taught her.
Normally, she'd leave before it got too crowded; her father preferred she avoided people altogether.
Yully watched him, alerted by the same sense of uneasiness she felt around her father lately.
She looked down at her stew, her father's warnings coming back to her thoughts.
He shimmered, like her father did.
This had to be the man her father warned her about!
Shivering, she pulled out her phone to call her father as she made her way towards the street.
The conversation between her father and the man who should've killed her rattled around in her thoughts as she returned to the door.
An arc of lightning left her father's hand and slammed the stranger into the wall.
Her father said the man came to kill her, yet she was still alive.
Her father had disappeared into thin air with the body of the man he called Jule.
Pacing in her room, she tried hard not to think of what her father was capable of doing to someone he thought was a threat to her.
Her father had tried to call twice, and she tossed the phone on the bed.
Her father never would've shown such restraint.
The plump woman nodded and hurried away, like everyone save her father did around her.
She didn't know what to say to her father after last night.
The way he and Jule had talked to each other, like long-lost enemies, reminded her she didn't know much about her father.
She shed it and her boots quickly, wanting to escape to her room before her father cornered her.
Her father was hard to read and often unapproachable, but he cared for her in his own special way.
Maybe her fear of her father was wrong.
Her resolve lasted until her father left for dinner with their wealthy neighbors.
Glancing at the clock on her nightstand, she waited until certain her father had left then rose.
She took in his wounds again, unable to fathom why her father would chain him to the wall in their wine cellar.
What could this man possibly know that her father needed?
And how did she stomach the thought of her father doing such a thing to someone?
It was one of the many oddities about her father that she'd accepted over the years.
While their servants aged, her father never did.
He'd just admitted to being what her father warned her about!
She'd sensed more danger from her father than from the man before her.
His intent gaze was steady, and she wondered if he could read her mind like her father did.
My father wouldn't do such a thing.
She hesitated at the head of the stairs, tormented by the knowledge her father was incapable of mercy towards his daughter, let alone a stranger.
If the man didn't freeze down there, he'd die at the hands of her father and his strange delusion that this man wanted her dead.
Jule was nothing like the men her father warned her about.
She knew better than to relax around her father, whose hand was likely to fly at the drop of a hat.
Her father beat them both.
She promised herself to find a way to check on him in the morning without her father finding out.
Father, couldn't you just call the police?
Her father turned at her hesitation, his gaze blazing.
He wasn't to that point yet, and he had to figure out just how to protect the woman from the man she considered her own father.
When my father gets here, he'll kill you both!
Her body was stiff from her father's blows, her blood racing.
Jule wasn't what her father said he should be.
In the morning, her father really would kill him, and she'd be lucky to escape with another beating.
The moment she unlocked the screen to call her father, Jule's gaze sharpened.
Neither of them believed her father would let him live.
Take us somewhere safe, where your father won't know where to find you.
Her father kept her on a tight leash; was there anywhere he wouldn't find her?
Don't take me to your father.
She went there for two summers, until she began turning everything she touched into something else, and her father was forced to pull her out of school at the age of twelve.
Her father would hunt them both down, and if he didn't, the sword-wielding maniac would.
He didn't seem like the kind whose moods shifted like her father's.
Her father hated this man for some reason, and being near him put them both in danger.
Your father does this?
I always end up running back to Father.
He's not your biological father?
Jule was so much bigger than her father.
You're not like me, and you're not like my father.
You're different than my father, too.
Nothing of what Jule told her made sense with what her father told her.
She'd accepted her father, because there was no one else who understood her.
Jule had shattered her carefully built world in a day, and he'd done it without the brutal lessons her father resorted to.
She waited until Moira's footsteps faded before dialing her father.
Have you been there for the past two days? her father asked.
There were few things in life she was certain about, and one of them was that she'd felt safer with Jule during their short time together than she ever did with her father.
What kind of creature would hurt a woman like this? her father asked.
Sean had been alive when her father knocked out Jule and brought him here the other night.
If he was dead, it meant her father did it, not Jule, who had been in the basement.
She didn't fully understand what was going on between her father and these people.
Her father had just admitted there were more people like her, and she couldn't help her flicker of hope at the news.
His father's angry voice was accompanied by a slap.
You probably never thought your father could kill a man before today.
Her father's collection of weapons had been a source of curiosity for as long as she could remember.
I just found out my father's running around killing people, and you expect me to trust a stranger when I don't even know if I can trust him anymore?
Unlike her father, this creature was capable of sympathy.
Whatever had happened, the man before her was hurting still, like she did when her father hit her.
She just had to convince her father to tell her what that was.
She'd never suspected the depths of her father's strange power, and her first attempt to channel it was the reason the house was now lit with candles.
I can't describe how strange this is, Father.
Her father released her hand and gazed at her for a long moment.
Her father touched her arm, and fire tore through her.
Muddling through the sensations, she sensed her father's magic.
She sensed Jule, her father, and hundreds—no, thousands!—of tiny signatures surrounding them.
She didn't want to imagine what her father was capable of.
She could now feel everything around her, and she assumed whatever her father unlocked was the cause.
Jule's eyes glinted with the magic in his body, and the air around him shimmered in a different power than that of her father.
I couldn't … I didn't know my father did this.
I'm sorry for your loss, Jule, but my father, he's all I have.
He spoke the truth, just as her father lied to her.
Jule wouldn't hit her as her father did.
But there was another reason she dared not leave her father, one she feared voicing even to the man before her.
Her father was planning something that depended on her magic.
I'm beginning to understand why the … why your father wants you.
My father will kill us.
Her father would notice her absence.
And when my father finds you lurking in the bushes beneath my window?
She touched it, as thrilled to wear his symbol as she had been her father's.
He'd long thought the girl and her father were unusual.
The girl visited the town nearly every weekend, and her father accompanied her once every few weeks.
She looked down, both thrilled by the idea of an eternity with the man who made her feel whole and horrified at what her father told her.
She took it and closed her eyes, determined to find a way to use her gift to counter her father's magic.
Xander had seemed curious, the opposite of what Jule expected from the father to the creatures Jule regularly killed.
Yully spent the drive north learning how to manipulate her father's magics with his patient tips as guidance.
Yully stepped from the warm car into the cold night and followed her father into the inn.
She armed herself, not willing to be caught off guard, then joined her father in the tiny foyer.
Doubtful, she winced as they approached tourists and police alike, waiting for someone to stop them, and fearful of what her father would do if someone did.
The ancient megalith pulsed with power older than that of her father's.
Mesmerized, she missed her step, and her father continued without her to the center of the landmark.
Her father's voice warbled as if through water.
Her eyes went from the ancient site glowing in the moonlight to her father's form as he walked up the hill.
She stepped away from the monument amplifying her magic and followed her father.
Resolved, she trailed her father down the hill, through the people who couldn't see them, and to the awaiting car.
She steadied her breathing, swearing to herself that these would be the last to die at her father's hands.
She checked her weapons with scrutiny that would've made her father proud and dressed in dark clothing loose enough for her to fight.
Her father returned around noon, his agitation apparent the moment he stepped in the door.
Yully grew more anxious the nearer they got; her father was right about the magic feeling stronger.
Her father flung open the door and strode up the incline.
Her father hadn't taken the time to bury these people.
Her father dragged half a body from the center of the site to the edge.
Her father returned with a bag slung over his shoulder.
Her father moved to the center of the monument and looked around.
You promised not to kill him if I cooperated, Father.
You made the one who can stop you fall in love with you instead, her father said.
Her father was right.
Her father's voice broke her concentration.
She faced her father, not expecting to see the small crowd of people on the other side of the monument.
Her father stood near her in the center.
Her father sent her to the store for her own things since she was adopted.
She didn't have to wonder about him as she had her father.
Unlike the cold rain of her father's energy, theirs was warm and cheerful, like her bond to Jule.
He looked like her father, only his eyes glowed green where her father's had been purple.
Yully listened, breathless, to the strangers who vowed to protect her from a threat similar to her father.
After a lifetime of rejection, she'd found a home with the very people her father warned her against.
Your father's mate was human.
Selyn peeked out from the two inches she'd opened the door, her dark eyes identical to her father's.
Is this how you talk to your father?
As for Martha's father, Patsy's comments as recorded on one statement she grudgingly gave the authorities listed him as "some john I did for a couple of bucks drug money."
Nor did his father.
Then I looked my father straight in the eye and lied.

My father did it because, to him, lying was so despicable he was forced to respond in a like manner.

Do you think this Josh character—the miner Fred found out about—might be her father?
As much as Dean wanted to press his guest on the possibility that the bones were those of her father, he realized such a question was tasteless and inappropriate.
Dean pulled out the photocopies of the old newspaper ads requesting information on Josh published first by Edith Plotke and later by her father.
Of course her father went ballistic when he found out she was pregnant and tried to find Josh, but he didn't have any luck.
Dean wondered if there was another, more sinister reason for Paul Dawkins' silence on the subject—that he was the murderer of his wife's natural father.
Jennifer never saw her natural father face-to-face and gave the impression she didn't give a flip.
Jennifer didn't lie about her father.
