I lost myself the moment I found you
What? Are you scared again?”
“Ha. Actually, I’m making us invisible.”
“What?” I glanced down at myself, expecting to see through my leg. “I don’t feel invisible.”
“And what does invisible feel like, Layla?” Amusement colored his tone.
I made a face at him.
His eyes crashed into mine, and they were like two citrines. He read something in my gaze. He had to, because a shudder rolled through his body. “I’m a demon, Layla. What I see in your eyes and what I sense from your body is something I will take. Make no mistake. I’ll give you one chance. Close your eyes, and I’ll let this go.”
He inclined his head, holding the door open. “Think you can walk to class, or are your knees too weak?”
I narrowed my eyes, brushing past him. “My knees aren’t weak. And you have a big ego.”
“That’s not the only thing that’s bi—”
“Shut up! TMI, Roth, TMI.”
Roth heaved a long sigh. “Look. I’m so—I’m sor...” He took a deep breath, trying again. “I’m sorr...”
I turned my head toward him, waiting. “You’re what? Sorry?”
He looked chagrined, lips pursed. “I’m...sorr-ree.”
“Oh, give me a break. You can’t say I’m sorry?”
“No.” He looked me straight on, serious. “It’s not in a demon’s vocab.”
“What is your job exactly?” I asked.
“To deflower you in the back of the most expensive car ever made.”
I tried to jerk my hand back, but he held on. “Let go.”
“Christ on a crutch.” He chuckled deeply. “I was just joking, you prude.”
“I don’t know what you mean.”
“You don’t? I was following you.”
“Oh, so you’re a demon and a stalker?” I swallowed hard. “Because that’s not creepy or anything.”
He laughed softly. “Deflection doesn’t work on demons.”
“Then I guess I’ll just have to try biting again.”
Something flared in his golden eyes, brightening them. “You wanna try?” He leaned in again, his lips brushing the curve of my cheek. “Let me suggest more appropriate places. I have this piercing—”
“Stop!” I jerked my head to the side.
“Now I can add pervert to stalker and demon.”
“I have no objection to any of those titles.”
“You should not intervene in this,” the Seeker demon said, and his hands curled into fists.
The new guy stepped forward noiselessly. “And you should kiss my ass. How about that?”
