Bound [Book #1]

They are connected by the fact that they've all died and been brought back.

This is a trilogy. Look for the other two books:



18. Eighteen.

“What can he do?” I asked.

Terry leaned close. “He can summon demons. A nice little trick. I've only seen what you've described once before. That thing about the sky —he's calling them, and they will come to the one who sees the darkness. They're coming for you.”

I sighed. “Of course they are. What isn't? But I want to know why. Mira said that Jev wanted me for something. He wanted me on his side.” I hesitated before speaking again. “Can I trust him not to kill me?”

Graham looked tense. “I wouldn't trust him, but that's just me. I think you should talk to Mira again. She might be able to persuade Jev to stay away from you.”

Julia snorted. “You're kidding me, aren't you? Graham, do you realize how many people are after Vivian? She's not safe out there. She's safer with us.”

“You mean with you,” Terry said, smirking. Then he looked serious. “I don't get why Jev would need you. Or why he'd summon the demons, if they aren't going to kill you.”

Julia looked around, her eyes wide. “I think I understand,” she said quietly. “Those demons he called aren't coming for Vi. They're coming for us. Jev wants us out of the way. Because, and as you'll agree, without us he can get to her with no problem. Without us, the only person she has to keep her safe, is him.”

“That doesn't make sense,” Terry said. “If they're coming for us, how come we don't see the darkness like Vivian?”

Graham shook his head. “I don't get it either. But I guess that's something else we'll figure out. Hopefully before that asshole comes back.” He frowned. “No one's going to take you from us. I know I've been a prick, but that doesn't mean I don't trust you. You're powerful and you could help us against the hunters.”

“Hunters?” I asked. “Is that what they're called?”

Julia shrugged. “Well we decided that's what they were since they're a group.”

I started to walk into the kitchen. No one followed me at first. Then, Julia and Terry came in and they both leaned against the counter and stared at me.

“What?” I said.

“I know this is hard for you,” Julia said quietly. "Us not being able to tell you what's after you is frustrating. Believe us when we say we know what you're dealing with. For years, we've tried to figure out who has been after us. We've failed so far.”

“It's difficult,” Terry agreed. “They keep themselves well hidden, so it's not as if we can go and get them."

“How do you know Jev's not one of them? Or Mira?” I asked.

Terry and Julia exchanged glances.

“She has a point,” Julia said.

“Has a point about what?” Graham said as he walked in. He glanced around. “Are we still discussing what we were in the foyer?”

“Vivian suggested that maybe Jev and Mira are part of the hunters,” Terry told him. “I wouldn't put it past them. I mean, they knew exactly where she was. I think that's odd.”

“One of them is probably a Tracker,” Julia said.

“My money's on Mira,” Graham muttered. “She was around when I got my powers too. Tried to talk me into joining this little group she had.” Suddenly, he looked alarmed. “Oh, fuck.”
