  • Katie frowned.  In the course of a day, Gabe had gone from emotional to unaffected when discussing Death.  He was distracted, and she felt like she was talking to someone completely different.  Blaming herself for taking his mind off of their survival, she fell silent and followed him.   Briars and branches caught her pant legs, and she found herself slowing to push more and more of the jungle's flora out of the way.  Gabe, too, began to struggle with the bramble, and she noticed the jungle no longer laid their path before him.  Instead of clearing away to allow them passage, it stayed where it was, obstructing them.

    0
    0
  • Straight to Death.  If what Gabe said was true, he was taking her to the only way out of the underworld.  And yet, she feared what that would mean.  Was she supposed to reason with Death?

    0
    0
  • "You know any more tricks?" she asked him, taking his hand again.

    0
    0
  • "No. Go get Hannah.  If Death let you go, then Darkyn's pissed.  If Darkyn's pissed then –" "Hannah and Ully are in trouble," Rhyn finished and rose.  He looked at the wound in his chest.  It might be tough taking on the demons of Hell, but he had a promise to fulfill.
