Second Shift: Order (Shift #2) Son (The Giver Quartet #4)

She sat up, scrambling back until her spine was pressed against the solid headboard of the bed. She looked like a statue of terror, her body stiff and frozen into place. Her eyes were still open, barely blinking, and though she did not move her head, they flicked frantically back and forth, scanning the entire room, but not seeing anything.

Her eyes slid to the left, then her chin followed by a quarter of an inch or so. Oh, it’s just a bee! Her face broke out in a relieved grin, and she lifted her hand to swat it away. For goodness’ sake, Anthony, don’t do that again. You had me scared for a moment.Anthony’s hand shot out and grasped her wrist with painful force. I said don’t move, he hissed.

Anthony, she said, laughing, it’s a bee.He held her immobile, his grasp hard and painful, his eyes never leaving the loathsome creature, watching as it buzzed purposefully around her head. He was paralyzed by fear, and fury, and something else he couldn’t quite put his finger on.It wasn’t as if he hadn’t come into contact with bees in the eleven years since his father’s death. One couldn’t reside in England, after all, and expect to avoid them altogether.

Until now, in fact, he’d forced himself to flirt with them in an odd, fatalistic manner. He’d always suspected that he might be doomed to follow in his father’s footsteps in all respects. If he was going to be brought down by a humble insect, by God he’d do it standing firm and holding his ground. He was going to die sooner or…well, sooner, and he wasn’t going to run from some bloody bug. And so when one flew by, he laughed, he mocked, he cursed, and he swatted it away with his hand, daring it to retaliate.And he’d never been stung.

But seeing one fly so dangerously close to Kate, brushing by her hair, landing on the lacy sleeve of her dress—it was terrifying, almost hypnotizing. His mind raced ahead, and he saw the tiny monster sink its stinger into her soft flesh, he saw her gasping for air, sinking to the ground.

He saw her here at Aubrey Hall, laid out on the same bed that had served as his father’s first coffin.I simply would like a bit of time to prepare, she said, primly folding her hands in her lap. But she couldn’t keep her thumbs still, and they twiddled anxiously, giving proof to the state of her nerves.

Anthony stared at her for a long moment, then leaned back, propping his left ankle rather casually on his right knee. Very well, he allowed.Really? She straightened with surprise. She had not expected him to capitulate with such ease.

Provided… he continued.She slumped. She should have known that there would be a contingency.

…that you edify me on one point.She gulped. And what would that be, my lord?

He leaned forward, the very devil in his eyes. How, precisely, do you plan to prepare?Kate glanced out the window, then swore under her breath when she realized they weren’t even to Anthony’s street. There would be no escaping his question; she was stuck in the carriage for at least another five minutes. We-e-e-e-ll, she stalled, I’m sure I don’t understand what you mean.

He chuckled. I’m sure you don’t, either.Kate scowled at him. There was nothing worse than being the butt of someone else’s joke, and it seemed especially inappropriate when one happened to be a bride on her wedding day. Now you’re having fun with me, she accused.
