    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
  • The dead woman's pale skin and hair starkly contrasted with Jonny's black silk sheets and duvet.
    0
    0
  • What dismay she felt at Jonny's first killing a week ago had slid into understanding that the Black God was merely becoming what he was.
    0
    0
  • Her Jonny was almost completely gone.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Like Jonny, he'd grown into what he was virtually overnight.
    0
    0
  • Burn the bodies of Jonny's girl-toys.
    0
    0
  • The vamps only try shit when Jonny and Xander aren't around.
    0
    0
  • Did you say Jonny tried to drag you to his bed?
    0
    0
  • She led him first down the hallway where the gym was, pointing out the locker rooms and weapons room before taking him to the second floor to Jonny's wing and past her doorless room.
    0
    0
  • "I've watched you and Jonny change from people I know into people I don't," she replied.
    0
    0
  • I have a cabin near Jonny's.
    0
    0
  • "I'm not Jonny," he said with a straight face.
    0
    0
  • No telling what Jonny would try to do if he knew.
    0
    0
  • I've watched Jonny turn into the Black God.
    0
    0

    0
    0

    0

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0

  • Jonny flinched, took a step back, then focused again on her.
    0
    0
  • Jonny barely registered it.
    0
    0
  • If Jonny or the Others didn't kill her.
    0
    0
  • For the first time since arriving at Jonny's, she wasn't cold.
    0
    0
  • Jonny accepted it and opened it.
    0
    0
  • "Give these to the vamps on duty," Jonny said.
    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • "I wouldn't hurt her," Jonny said.
    0
    0
  • Jonny stared at him.
    0
    0
  • After reading the note, Jonny, too, Traveled elsewhere.
    0
    0
  • What would Damian want with Jonny?
    0
    0
  • Not only was an Other there, but so was Damian, the messenger he'd sent, Jonny, Jenn, and Xander.
    0
    0
  • I'd rather have him here, Jonny seconded.
    0
    0
  • "Damian," Jonny said, turning to the White God, "I will not object if you wish to turn her over to them."
    0
    0
  • "You forget, Jonny, it's impossible for one of us to cross over," Damian replied.
    0
    0
  • He'd planned on asking her about it this morning, before the summons took her and Jonny from the mountain fortress.
    0
    0
  • A look at Jonny sent the Black God back quickly as well.
    0
    0
  • Jonny waited for Xander to go before he, too, disappeared.
    0
    0
  • I'm going back to Jonny's.
    0
    0
  • The first lesson I taught Jonny was that those people closest to his target were vulnerabilities.
    0
    0
  • Jonny do something stupid?
    0
    0
  • If Jonny found out, if the Others grab me, they'll use me to destroy Darian.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • "Charles and Xander are actively looking for the portal," Jonny said.
    0
    0
  • I don't know, Jonny.
    0
    0
  • "I did it once to Jonny, long ago, before …" She drifted off, darkness crossing her features.
    0
    0
  • Darian hesitated one moment longer before he located a small group of Others near Jonny's lair.
    0
    0
  • If Darian tracked Others here, she tracked Jonny, and neither was there … they'd gone somewhere together.
    0
    0
  • Jonny didn't threaten you, did he?
    0
    0
  • Enough time for me to figure out what Jonny's doing with the Others.
    0
    0
  • Maybe they're with Jonny.
    0
    0
  • Said he found some Others nearby, she said, watching Jonny carefully.
    0

    0
    0
  • Jonny, that's not true.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Jonny flung off his coat and boots then sat in a chair in the living area, brooding.
    0
    0
  • "Read it aloud," Jonny ordered, leaning forward.
    0
    0
  • "Which world survives," Jonny repeated.
    0
    0
  • Jonny, what are you telling me?
    0
    0
  • Jonny and his predecessor clearly believed the Grey God was a danger to their own world.
    0
    0
  • And he won't pick ours, Jenn, Jonny continued.
    0
    0
  • Jonny's words bounced around in her thoughts as she recalled the look Darian had given the portal they stumbled upon.
    0
    0
  • Jonny argued, approaching her.
    0
    0
  • "Jonny, he's not your enemy," she said.
    0
    0
  • "They won't, not if they want …" Jonny ran his fingers through his hair.
    0
    0
  • This is madness, Jonny.
    0
    0
  • Jonny, what did you do?
    0
    0
  • They manipulated you, Jonny!
    0
    0
  • "No, Jenn, they said—" "I don't give a shit what they said, Jonny.
    0
    0
  • "I've loved you almost since I met you," Jonny said, stepping closer.
    0
    0
  • You don't love me, Jonny.
    0
    0
  • Jonny, what you feel for me—it's not real.
    0
    0
  • "Xander told me not to agree with the Others," Jonny considered.
    0
    0
  • Jonny searched her gaze.
    0
    0
  • "Jonny, I don't know how to tell you what you've done," she said.
    0
    0
  • I don't know how else to say this, Jonny, but that's the game we're playing.
    0
    0
  • Jonny wasn't trained in reading minds; his entrance into hers was like taking a machete to a piñata.
    0
    0
  • Jonny squatted beside her.
    0
    0
  • Jonny released her and rose.
    0
    0
  • You can't go to the immortal world, Jonny.
    0
    0
  • Of course, if Jonny had his way, her fate was already sealed.
    0
    0
  • Jonny crouched beside her.
    0
    0
  • Jenn wiped her mind clean, instead thinking of Bianca, Jonny's sister.
    0
    0
  • She focused hard on the image of Bianca and braced herself for Jonny's fiery touch.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Jonny planted his hands on his hips and stared at the ceiling.
    0
    0
  • "Whatever you say, Jonny," she replied and rose.
    0
    0
  • For all I know, he was manipulating me, like you did, Jonny snapped.
    0
    0
  • Jonny took a step back then gazed at her in silent surprise.
    0
    0
  • She didn't know what to think about Jonny's assignment or his insistence Darian would destroy one world.
    0
    0
  • Jonny hadn't mentioned knowing she was Darian's mate, but keeping anything from him just got harder.
    0
    0
  • The Others would get her eventually anyway, if not by Jonny's hand, then by their own.
    0
    0
  • Jonny had ordered her never to leave, crippled her ability to Travel, and then told her to get information from Darian.
    0
    0
  • The information Jonny revealed about one of the worlds being destroyed was too crazy for her not to find out the truth.
    0
    0
  • "Jonny's flipping out," Darian said.
    0
    0
  • "Jonny stripped my magic," she said.
    0
    0
  • Jonny said he sent you after me.
    0
    0
  • Things got weird with Jonny.
    0
    0
  • Where Damian radiated sunlight and Jonny storm clouds, Darian shifted between the two.
    0
    0
  • The funny thing about Jonny stripping your powers: we're on even ground.
    0
    0
  • "Why did Jonny send you after me?" he asked.
    0
    0
  • "Jonny thinks you're going to destroy one of the worlds," she said.
    0
    0
  • Anything Jonny and the Others do to you, they do to me.
    0
    0
  • "They wouldn't do this unless …" … they thought the same as Jonny, that Darian was getting ready to destroy their world.
    0
    0
  • He'd want Damian and Jonny with him if he went to the immortal world to take on the Others.
    0
    0
  • All but Yully and … Jonny, who had told Jenn that Darian was going to destroy a world.
    0
    0
  • Darian Traveled to Jonny's, appearing in the Black God's chambers.
    0
    0
  • Jonny broke loose, dropping to the ground.
    0
    0
  • Got suckered into a deal with the Others, Jonny?
    0
    0
  • Jonny looked away finally and strode to his bedroom.
    0
    0
  • He carefully tucked away the reality that—if Jonny hadn't crippled her—she wouldn't have been taken.
    0
    0
  • Jonny asked at last.
    0
    0
  • Jonny was born a god-slayer, the only creature that could take the place of a Black God.
    0
    0
  • "You wouldn't … I wouldn't even do that," Jonny said in a quiet voice.
    0
    0
  • "Jonny's not the only one who can get that thing off you," Sofi said.
    0
    0
  • From what Jonny revealed, Darian needed to be on the immortal side of the world before he unleashed his magic.
    0
    0
  • Jonny cried, moving towards them.
    0
    0
  • "I'm taking you out of here," Jonny said, snatching her arm and hauling her up.
    0
    0
  • "No, Jonny, Sofi's—" "Where's Jenn?"
    0
    0
  • Even Jonny hesitated, eyes going to the pale Oracle.
    0
    0
  • Darian saw the hard look on Jonny's face as the Black God bent down to pick up the Oracle.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • "Thank you, Jonny," she said.
    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Jonny's voice took on a firm, cold note.
    0
    0
  • What just happened, Jonny?
    0
    0
  • Jonny looked down at her.
    0
    0
  • Jonny was going through the same.
    0
    0
  • I'm never ashamed of you, Jonny.
    0
    0
  • "Tell Dusty, if this happens again …" Jonny warned.
    0
    0
  • Jonny strode to Sofi and lifted her again.
    0
    0
  • "Good-bye, Bianca," Jonny said.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • I meant it, Jonny.
    0
    0
  • Jonny's dark eyes had taken on a new spark of intelligence, his air settled where it had been agitated before.
    0
    0
  • Whether or not Jonny would ever know that same sense of peace, there was always a chance he could.
    0
    0
  • Jonny … I don't think he'll wait for the truce to be up.
    0
    0
  • The Black God, Jonny, was one of the three Gods dwelling in the mortal realm.
    0
    0
  • With dark hair and eyes and the caramel skin marking his Cuban heritage, Jonny was tall and lanky.
    0
    0
  • Jonny demanded, at once guarded and tense.
    0
    0
  • Jonny searched his gaze.
    0
    0
  • The girl at Jonny's feet was still alive.
    0
    0
  • It explained why Jonny didn't kill her, but it didn't explain why he hadn't turned her.
    0
    0
  • Jonny snapped, referring to the time Xander spent training the Black God to do his job.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Jonny said nothing and knelt.
    0
    0
  • He didn't need to read Jonny's mind to know the young Black God was reliving something.
    0
    0
  • Jonny's first kill, the girl that condemned him, was a teenage brunette.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Jonny mumbled a curse and straightened.
    0
    0
  • Jonny didn't go far.
    0
    0
  • He debated following Jonny then changed his mind.
    0
    0
  • He shouldn't be concerned, but he also knew better than to assume any good was going to come of whatever Jonny was doing.
    0
    0
  • True to his word, Jonny left Xander's at the fifty-eight minute mark.
    0
    0
  • He put his phone away, more amused by the idea of Jonny waiting for his permission than responding.
    0
    0
  • Jessi, this is Jonny.
    0
    0
  • Jessi went to the door, crossing her arms at the weird charge around the kid named Jonny.
    0
    0
  • "I want to make you a deal," Jonny started.
    0
    0
  • "It's not that bad," Jonny said.
    0
    0
  • At her silence, Jonny took her hand.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Tall and lanky, Jonny didn't look like some sort of inhuman creature.
    0
    0
  • Jonny turned to face the person Jessi hadn't heard arrive.
    0
    0
  • He made Jonny seem warm and welcoming.
    0
    0
  • "She's intriguing," the man said to Jonny.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Jonny stepped in front of her.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Jonny faced her once more and pulled free a piece of paper from his pocket.
    0
    0
  • At Jonny's silence, she looked up.
    0
    0
  • They didn't live on the nice side of town, but she suspected Jonny didn't have to worry about security, when he could just use his weird magic to get him places.
    0
    0
  • "I'll be watching everything you do," Jonny said quietly from behind her.
    0
    0
  • Jonny tripped his senses again.
    0
    0
  • Jonny disappeared then re-entered Xander's territory a moment later.
    0
    0
  • He forced his attention away and walked slowly down the hallway, towards the room where the girl had been – and where Jonny had appeared twice this morning.
    0
    0
  • Jonny was up to something.
    0
    0
  • Stronger than his curiosity was the knowledge that he wanted nothing to do with whatever Jonny was planning, no doubt against the White God, his sworn enemy.
    0
    0
  • No. Those …things Jonny's predecessor created in Ohio were freaks.
    0
    0
  • We still have the vamp Jonny lent us to help track Others.
    0
    0
  • After the months he spent making sure no one killed the new Black God before Jonny found his footing, Xander began to think he might've …forgotten something.
    0
    0
  • After her come-to-Jesus moment with Jonny, he'd left a further reminder in the form of a letter that awaited her on the pillow beside hers when she woke.
    0
    0
  • She wasn't going to be late on her first day, not because she cared what the client wanted, but because Jonny claimed to be watching every move she made.
    0
    0
  • If she found what Jonny wanted today, she wouldn't have to worry about the stupid rules or finding out how weird the boss was.
    0
    0
  • What if she wasn't able to get what Jonny sent her for?
    0
    0
  • She wasn't terrified as she had been with Jonny.
    0
    0
  • Jonny had to have sent this girl here for a reason.
    0
    0

    0
