5. Complications

'How can you walk in the sunlight?' I ask.

He releases a laugh. "I've never  met a human who wanted to know so much before."

"Really?"

"Yes, really. You're quite intriguing actually."

"You never answered my question."

"Well, I met a witch, and she charmed me so I could walk in the sunlight."

I raise an eyebrow. A witch? 

"Yes, a witch. And yes, I can read your mind." 

"You're like a walking circus trick. What else can you do?"

"The given, like win any mortal fight. I can read minds and communicate telepathically, and make a killer tequila." He flashes a wicked smile. 

Now it's my turn to laugh. "So how exactly did you become... what you are?"

"It's complicated."

"Complicated?"

He nods grimly.

"So... is Alexander the one who turned you?" 

"Yes. He did the exact same thing to me that he did to you. But he did it for another reason."'

"Which was?"

"Revenge."

I swallow the growing lump  in my throat. "Revenge?"

'Yes. Alexander and I aren't exactly on the best of terms." 

"What did you do?"

He gets toe to toe with me, glaring down the head and a half of height difference between us. "Don't ever ask that again." 

The truth?

I'm not sure my savior is a savior after all.
