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:



17. Seventeen.

I thought about nothing but Julia as I walked back to the house. I wanted to tell her what happened, without Graham and Terry overhearing. But that was slightly impossible. I stopped and leaned against a stop sign and dug out my phone.

Can you meet me?

Her reply was instant.

Are you okay? Where are you? Graham is freaking out.

I looked down, typed a response, and waited.

I'll be there soon. Stay where you are.

I didn't have much of a choice in that matter. Where was I going to go? It turned out I didn't have to wait long before I saw Julia coming around the corner. She didn't let me speak as she pressed her lips against mine.

“I was worried,” she whispered, her fingers locked in my hair now. “I thought you'd go to the police.” She drew back and looked at me. “You didn't, did you?”

I shook my head. “I ended up in the playground and I met a woman there. Her name was Mira.”

Julia gasped, her eyes wide. “What did she look like?”

I titled my head. “Red hair, green eyes, slim. Pretty. She had this weird fascination with my eyes.” I watched her. “Do you know her?”

“Mira Lehane,” Julia said softly. “I've seen her around. She's bad news. What did she want?”

I shifted. “I'd rather explain that when we get back. I also might need Terry and Graham's advice on this,” I said, changing my mind about what I'd previously decided.

“Okay,” Julia said, gripping my hand. “Let's go. I'm sure Graham will be happy you're back. He's been worried.” She lifted her face. “Isn't the sun wonderful today?”

I looked up at an inky-black sky with stars scattered as far as I could see.

What was going on?


The sky never changed, even as we go to the house. I wasn't sure I understood it, and I wasn't sure I wanted to even bring it up to the others. As we stepped inside, Terry rushed at me, and threw his arms around my neck.

“Don't do that again,” he told me. “Now that we found you, we can't let you go. We're not as strong without you, especially since you have a second power.”

As he released me, I saw Graham behind him. I frowned.

“Are you okay?” I asked.

He nodded. “I'll live. You didn't get my skin.”

“I'm so sorry,” I said. “I didn't know.”

“I know,” he said. “It's okay. But, hey, at least you're useful now.” He smiled at my expression.

“Vivian met Mira Lehane,” Julia said, stepping forward.

Graham's eyes narrowed. “You did?” he asked. “What did she say to you? Did she threaten you?”

“Easy,” Terry said, “let her explain.”

So I told them. As I did, I watched their faces. None of them looked too happy after I had finished. Julia moved closer to me.

“Jev?” Graham said slowly. “I've never heard of him. What can he do?”

“I don't know,” I said, and that was the truth. “But he made the sky dark. It's still like that, just not to you. To you, it looks like a normal, sunny day.”

Terry looked outside at the light. “That's so weird.” Then he looked at me, his expression suddenly grim. “Vi, I don't want to worry you, but I think I know what this Jev guy can do.”
