I knew accepting Adriel's help might not have been the best idea. But I needed all the help I could get. Having two of the most powerful realms after you isn't the safest position to have no friends in. As much as I hated to admit it, I needed him. He was my guardian after all.
"Where do we go from here?" Tyler asked. I had almost forgotten he was there. I would have preferred he wasn't. The tension was so thick you could cut it with a butter knife.
"I don't know." I admitted. My head was spinning from all this new information. "How do you defend against Hell and Heaven at the same time?"
"We need help." Adriel said.
"From who?" I questioned. God this was exhausting. It's like no one's ever heard of a straight answer.
"Someone who can access Hell easily." Tyler offered.
"How the hell are we supposed to get a demon to help us?" My temper was thinning and Tyler seemed to notice. He put a hand on my shoulder and I shook it off. Every time he touched me it sent shivers down my spine.
I didn't care if it was good or bad I just wanted it to stop. The bond, the feeling he gave me. The whole soulmate thing. It needed to stop.
I still felt the after effects of that kiss, my lips tingled and part of me longed for him to do it again.
That part of me I hid deep down. You can't act on feelings like that. Not in this world. If you don't stay focused, you're dead. And right now, I was dead.
"I have an idea." Cadewyn supplied. "A spell."
I looked at her curiously. "Anything bad?"
Cadewyn shrugged. "If the winged freak doesn't mess it up, I could do it no problem." Adriel stepped forward angrily. I shot him a warning glare.
"And I need his help." She jerked her chin at Tyler.
"What do you need?"
"Keep Aria under control."
"Why would I need to be controlled?" I interjected. "You're the one doing the spell."
"I am." She confirmed. "But the demon will be bound to you as a guard. If you're not kept in check, you'll lose it, and the binding spell won't matter."
"Fine." I sighed. "How does this work?"
"Let move this somewhere else." Cadewyn instructed. "If things go south I'd like to keep these books safe."
Sorry it's so short and it's been so long. Writers block for all my stories. Ideas?
