Last One Home (New Beginnings #1) Superior Saturday (The Keys to the Kingdom #6)

No—Vi, no. I crouched down in front of her. It was so loud down there—

Yeah, I’m getting that. My good hand was sticky with blood, but I wiped it on my jeans, reached up, and rested my palm on his cheek.He closed his eyes for a moment, leaning into it, and I felt a tear slide between my fingers, and then another. His anger had drained out of him, and he just looked . . . tired.

Je Suis à Toi (Monsters in the Dark #3.5)

A throat cleared behind him. Jameson, my good man, came Arthur Holmwood’s voice. I’m afraid we need to wrap this up. Our guests will be arriving.I leaned sideways so I could see Arthur’s face. He looked politely regretful, like he’d just told a bunch of nice kids their slumber party had to end.If I had to die, at least I could get in one last dig. By the way, Arthur, I said conversationally, I killed Claire, years ago. She’s been dead for all of your little revenge tour.

The Rush (The Siren #1)

His mouth dropped open. No, she isn’t.She is. I gestured around. You know, Lucy said you guys were going to kill yourselves after Claire was dead. So why not let me go? I shrugged. Yeah, I’m going to send my boss to stop you guys, but isn’t that what you want?

It was stupid, but for a second I actually thought I had him. Then Arthur’s gaze hardened. My wife was right. You are a lying piece of trash. He raised the gun again. Say goodbye, Jameson.

That’s when I knew it was over. I was out of ideas, and I was going to die. You’d think that would scare me, but everything hurt so much, and my mind was numb. I was just hoping that I’d bought Wyatt enough time to recover so he could get out of here, or at least kill the Holmwoods like he wanted. Thoughts of Jack and Jesse and Molly jumped into my brain, but I pushed them away, because I would not cry.Yes, I said, finally finding the words as he started the video over again. I do.

I LEFT THE COMPUTER LAB in another glassy daze, walking and walking with nothing but the images of all of those kids trapped inside of my head. Burns. Surgeries. Blood being drawn. Questions. So many variations of What’s happening? And Why are you doing this?Even if my mind was checked out, my body at least knew where it wanted to go. This whole day had passed like a year spent underwater. I just wanted to go to sleep for a little while, and try surfacing again later.

Embrace the Night (Cassandra Palmer #3)

The others had claimed one of the empty bunk rooms on the lower level—I had my own creaky bed and everything. Truthfully, though, I would have curled up in the corner of one of the halls on the cold tile, as long as it meant shutting my eyes for a little while.Someone clearly had the same idea. The overhead light was off, but a smaller, desk-sized one was on, perched on top of the crappy little dresser on the other side of the room. I hadn’t realized how badly I wanted to see him until he was there, and a little glow lit at my center. Liam was sprawled across one of the bottom bunks on his stomach, his face turned away, his hands tucked up under the folded sweatshirt he was using as a pillow. His hair and back were still damp from the shower he must have taken.

Hey, I said, coming toward him. A small test of sorts to gauge his mood. If he wanted to be left alone, I’d turn and go without a second’s hesitation. Instead, his shoulders, then the rest of his body, visibly relaxed. I dropped my knee on the free space at the edge of the bare mattress. His hand automatically moved to hook his arm around it.Hey yourself, Liam mumbled. He didn’t sound sleepy, but he did sound wrung-out. Time for dinner?

Not yet. How’s the garage looking?Getting there. You can see half of the floor now. That’s an improvement, right? he said, finally lifting his head and turning toward me. Present for you.

I followed his gaze over to the dresser, where there was a square of clear plastic to the left of the lamp. I picked it up and laughed—it was a CD case, The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds. I popped it open, smiling at the liner notes and disc inside.It’s like our song is following us everywhere, he said.
