His three other half brothers were already present and waiting, Erik pacing, Kiki at the table, and Tamer busy with his PDA.
"I'll let you know, Kiki," he called to his half-brother.
For once, I think Kiki is right.
"Neither of you are funny," Kiki replied.
"Exactly. The first page has the talking points outlining what you can share," Kiki said before addressing Gabriel.
Practical and detail-oriented, Kiki was well-dressed and lean.
"Kiki keeps telling me Andre would've figured this out by now," Rhyn continued.
When we identified you, we obtained all your medical records, your credit history, basically your entire life, Kiki explained.
"You're ninety eight percent human," Kiki said.
"That depends," Kiki said.
"Because …" "Because you're his mate," Kiki said.
We think there's something else going on, Kiki said.
It doesn't much matter what you want, Kiki replied.
"Forbidden," Kiki said firmly.
And Rhyn and Kris and Kiki, Toby said cheerfully.
Still have an idea of what Kiki and Tamer are doing but no idea what Erik is doing.
"We started with Asia last time," Kiki snapped, oriental features and towering height marking his mixed breeding.
"Erik's right, brother," Kiki said.
"Maybe you're the mole, brother," Kiki added.
Kiki whirled from his position before the hearth, his oriental features set off by electric turquoise eyes.
The only brother not to declare outright war on him, Kiki was a distant second to Andre in his tepid support of their black sheep of a young brother.
Rhyn ignored the accusation and pulled her away when Kiki tried to snatch her.
"No one told me you were out of prison," Kiki muttered as he worked.
Kiki glanced at him and whipped out a mobile phone.
Kiki stared, even more stunned.
Rhyn asked suspiciously as Kiki started toward the arched door beside the portcullis.
Kiki didn't knock the door down as he could, instead beating loudly enough for the sound to drift down the road.
Kiki clasped his hands and offered a small bow.
Rhyn shoved past Kiki into a small courtyard.
Ancients aren't welcome in Sanctuaries, Kiki said.
Kiki gave him a shove, and the older woman closed the door behind them.
"This is the best you can do," Kiki said.
He trailed Kiki out of the castle to the boulders a short distance from the walls.
Kiki turned on him at last.
"Back off, Kiki," he growled, knowing the words were true.
Kiki fell silent, but his gaze was accusing.
"I don't know, Kiki!" he snapped.
Kiki asked, gaze sharpening.
"So you did before he could," Kiki finished.
Kiki demanded at last.
Kiki ceased pacing and stared at the walls.
"You can't keep her," Kiki said again.
And I will, Kiki, he breathed through clenched teeth.
Rhyn met his gaze, leery as Kiki turned, considering.
"You haven't blown anything up yet," Kiki said.
And Kiki was gone.
He was glad Kiki brought him and just as troubled by his brother's doubt.
"Kiki, this is Katie, Rhyn's mate," Kris said coolly.
Katie, Kiki, one of our brothers.
"Pleasure, Katie," Kiki managed before returning his gaze to his PDA.
Kiki asked, agitation on his face.
Kiki rolled his eyes, and Jade inched away from Rhyn, who bared his teeth in a humorless grin.
We don't have much of a choice, Kiki said pragmatically.
"Yes, you do," Kiki said firmly.
"We'll report back nightly," Kiki added.
Before she could object, Kiki took charge again.
Cynically, he suspected all but Kiki would choose the demons.
