The Newcomer (Thunder Point #2) The Lost Soul (Fallen Souls #1)

Konstantin looked up at me. His handsome face, usually bright and confident, was chillingly blank. He almost appeared dead, except for his gray eyes—dark and frightfully alert.

I almost run past the turn, without seeing the faded sign. Old Mill Farm points to a narrow lane, more an overgrown rutted track than a road. Walking now, I set out along it. Trees soon lean and reach above making it closed in, a green tunnel. Nowhere to hide. Unease rises inside my gut. I slip off the track and push into the dense woods alongside.According to the map it is half a mile to their house, but picking my way with no path through undergrowth and trees, it soon seems longer. Branches pull at my hair, brambles catch my clothes, and I look longingly at the lane.

Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror #1)

Just as I stand, one foot forward and one back in indecision, engine sounds come from the direction of the house. A vehicle, coming fast: I duck in shadows next to a tree. Wheels spin on the lane as a white van goes past. I catch a glimpse of the driver as it rattles along: Wayne Best.My heart sounds thump-thump in my ears. That was close. What would he have done if Id been on the lane, and hed spotted me scrambling out of the way? I must be mad. Just be careful.Another bend, and buildings are in sight. Though they look more like a collection of sprawling barns and outbuildings than a house, some of them half falling down. A fence and gate surrounds the lot. Out front is a metal graveyard, littered with shells and bits of rusted out cars, tractors and other machinery I cannot identify. None of the cars look operational: maybe no one is home? I consider turning around. Youre here now.

Castle of Wizardry (The Belgariad #4)

One building to the right of the cluster looks to be falling down less than the others. There are a few straggly bushes in front of it, and an actual door rather than a hinged bit of wood.I hesitate, then cross to the lane and open the gate. The lane becomes a track that leads off to the left behind the buildings; fields slope up beyond. Uneven chunks of concrete are spaced through mud at even intervals to lead a path through bits of machinery to the door. Listen, first. There are rustlings in the trees, behind; no voices, no radio.

I step out on to the first concrete step, and hop along to the next. They are soon so far apart I almost have to jump between them. The house is just a few steps away when there is a small noise, a movement, to my left. I turn.

Two eyes. Teeth, sharp teeth. A low rumbling growl. A big dog, maybe a mix of Alsatian and something else, and he doesnt look happy.Tell her anyway, okay? I persisted. And tell her Im sorry. I never meant for him to get hurt. I swallowed back the tears that threatened to form.

Ridley squeezed my hand. Okay. Ill tell her, and Ill watch out for you parents and Tilda. I wont let anything happen to them while youre gone.I kissed him then, knowing I might never see him again, that this might be the very last kiss we ever shared, and he set down the duffel bag so he could wrap his arms around me. For a moment, the world fell away around us, and it was only me and him and the way his lips tasted and his arms felt and how desperately I loved him.

Predestined (Existence Trilogy #2)

He held my face in his hands and looked deep into my eyes. When this is over, and your parents and Tilda are safe, I will come find you.The train began to whistle as it pulled into the station, so we didnt have much time. I kissed him again, then grabbed the duffel bag and ran into the station.

The cell phone sat on the counter, the black screen staring up at me, almost taunting me to use it. Itd been five days, and every day had been a battle of will not to call Ridley to find out what was going on.I didnt know if hed gotten caught for helping me escape, and I wanted to know how Tilda was doing and if my parents were safe. But the Högdragen were probably monitoring his phone, and even though Id gotten an untraceable prepaid phone, that could still mean trouble for him.

What are you having? the waitress on the other side of the cracked vinyl counter asked me, interrupting my staring contest with the phone.Um… A badly worn laminated menu sat on the counter next to my phone, and I quickly scanned it to see if anything appealed to me. Most things sounded as if they were cooked in a vat of grease, and my stomach rolled in disgust. That was the price of stopping in dive diners like this, but I didnt know how long Id be on the run, and these places had the cheapest food—even if all the food was repulsive.

Just an unsweetened iced tea, I decided.Coming right up. She smiled at me as she took the menu. Even though she had the weary expression of someone who was at the end of a ten-hour shift, there was sympathy in her eyes as she looked at me, so I knew I had to look as bad as I felt.
