Water’s Mark by Rachael Slate

 

Water'sMark.jpg

She’s as fluid as water

Cyane of the Pegaeae, spring nymphs, can cure any disease. Imprisoned for her powers not once, but twice, she’s determined to return to her people. But that means escaping her second captor, the formidable Lord of a race of crab shifters, who has no intention of letting her go. Not until she’s healed every last one of his people—a task which will drain the last drops of her powers.

He’s as rigid as stone

Theron, leader of the Karkinos, has vowed to save his people from a brutal disease, no matter the cost. So when a scintillating nymph with the power to heal them all falls into his lap, he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her within his grasp—and far from his heart. Betrayed by those closest to him, Theron’s hardened his shell so much, no one can penetrate his armor. Not even Cyane, though that doesn’t stop her from demanding the one thing he’s sworn he’ll never give to anyone again—his trust.

Only she can crack through his shell

Unquenchable passions crash them into each other, binding their destinies, and their hearts. If they can stand together and fight the darkness claiming him from the inside out, they might find a way to save not only his people, but hers as well.

Theron flinched at the glinting metal enclosing Cyane’s wrist. Aye, he’d made her a prisoner, the same as that bastard Philaeus. After hearing her tale, however, he was even less assured she’d remain if he freed her.

The predicament about whether he ought to force her to heal his people faded. It wasn’t as his prisoner that he wished to keep her.

He craved Cyane for himself.

“How can I be sure that if I release you, you won’t vanish?”

“You can’t.” She perched her hands on her hips. “It’s called trust, Theron, and you will have to begin using it with me.” She thrust out her wrists and regarded him with one arched brow.

“Trust,” he muttered to himself, puffing. “I’m not entirely certain I know how to do that anymore.”

“Well, now’s the time to find out.”

Indeed. Setting his shoulders, he snared both of her wrists, closing his hands around the metal. It sprang open, the shackles clinking onto the ground.

Cyane hugged her wrists to her chest and rubbed them. “Thank you.”

He bent to snatch the manacles off the floor. “Don’t thank me. Not for this.” He flicked his gaze to hers, searching within those azure pools for something, anything, to assure him she wouldn’t melt into a puddle and vanish.

“I’m not going anywhere, Theron.” She beamed at him. “I rather like having a mission of my own.”

“Aye, speaking of which,” his chest tightened as he recalled the weak state he’d discovered her in earlier, “there have to be rules about how many you heal and how close together. You can’t drain yourself so intensely.”

“Fine.” She huffed and crossed her arms. “I’ll proceed with care.”

He’d be relieved, if her eyes didn’t sparkle. How their roles had reversed. Before, he would have commanded her to cure them all, regardless of the cost to herself. Now, he was unwilling to allow her to heal even one soul if it meant any distress for her.

“I am serious.” He stalked forward, seizing her wrists and uncrossing them, tugging her to his chest. “You must be careful.”

Her breath hitched and she bit the corner of her plump bottom lip. “If I’m not? What happens to those who defy the mighty Theron?”

Her playful tone tugged a smile onto his lips. “They are punished, of course.” He dropped his hands to her bottom and, seizing her, tossed her over his shoulder.

Taurus- Ambitious, Honourable, Devoted

Scorched Ember by Julia Mills 17855612_1655855914443549_5601652977513408157_o

The Guardians of the Zodiac are back, along with the Dragon Guard of the Sea. These mighty dragons, presumed dead for centuries, arise from watery exile to save mankind and reunite their clans.

The world is in danger…

The fabric of the Universe is unraveling…

Magic has been corrupted, tainted, polluted by a malicious force with designs on world domination…

White witches are turning to the dark arts, while the malevolent practitioners are trying to conjure Hell on Earth.

Armed with the pure Earthen magic of her mother and the throwing stars given to her by Astraea, the Star Maiden—Goddess of Innocence and Purity—Roxane, Guardian of Taurus, has answered Poseidon’s call. Crossing the Crystal Gateway and infiltrating a coven of Elemental Witches devoted to destroying the forces of evil was easy…then she met Ladon and the piece of her soul she’d thought lost to the Fates was suddenly within her grasp. But he’s a distraction she doesn’t need. Worse than that, he’s hiding something…and secrets are just as good as a knife to the back in a war where nothing is as it seems.

Hiding in plain sight, Ladon has gotten very good at playing human. He’s spent nearly two centuries protecting not only the pure white magic entrusted to him by the Elders of his clan, but also his dragon, the last of the Fire Water Clan…then came Roxane. She calls to not only the man, but also his beast. Their attraction is immediate, soul-deep, and life-changing.

She’s unlike anyone he’s ever known – beautiful, powerful…dangerous in ways he has yet to discover. There is no denying the pull she has on him, no getting away from the call of Fate that Ladon had lost all those decades ago. But Roxane has secrets, and in a world gone mad…secrets can be deadly.

With the fate of the world resting squarely on their shoulders, can this Guardian and her dragon save mankind and find their happily ever after?

Not even the gods know what will happen next…

The answer is written in the stars…

“I’m only gonna say this one more time…”

“Yeah, that’s what you said the last four times and the answer is still no,” Roxane grumbled. “I’m not calling for help. I’m not telling Father that Nicneven is back and I am under no circumstances going to listen to Zoe say that she told me so.” The Guardian of Taurus stopped in her tracks, spun on her toes and stared at her sister. “I will tell them after I’ve killed that bitch, put her head on a pike and have Ladon back.” She leaned forward, making sure Una saw the determination in her eyes. “This is my fight. He’s my mate. She’s the mother-in-mating from Hell. And make no mistake, I intend to send her cold, dead body back to Uncle Hades. If you don’t want to go, just say so. No harm, no foul.”

Looking at her like she had three heads, Una groaned, “Really? This shit again? You know damned good, and well I would follow you into the fires of the Underworld. I’m just saying…

“You’re just saying you think we’re outmatched, outgunned and gonna get our asses kicked. We’re…”

“No, I’m saying, if you cared to listen,” Una interrupted with her I’m-the-big-sister-here-so-listen look. “I have no doubt we are gonna kick ass and take names, but I think it would go a lot smoother if we had backup.” Stepping forward, the Guardian of Pisces placed her hand on Roxane’s shoulder. “Nicneven has control of all the nasties and beasties and things that go bump in the night, not to mention a shitload of Witches, Wizards and the Gods only know what else. Hell, the battle-ax brought a harras of Centaur with her to kidnap her own son. She was a nasty customer when we were kids and now, with her need for revenge and trying to impress Ladon, well…”

“That bitch be crazy, is what Una is trying to say,” Doriean interjected, having appeared at Roxane’s side. “I’m with you to the bitter end, help, not help, whatever the case may be.” He winked. “But I think we need to get going. These woods are giving me the creeps. I just know old Nicci, Nicci, Bad and Wicki is watching our every move. We need to act and act fast if we’re gonna get your Dragon back and kick some Goddess booty.”

Shaking her head, Roxane could only snort, “Nicci, Nicci, Bad and Wicki? Seriously? That’s the best you could do?”

“In a pinch, yes,” her Companion sniffed, acting insulted even though she could see his shoulders bouncing with barely contained laughter. “And it’s damn good if I do say so myself.”

“You would,” she groaned, turning back towards the rundown castle where she knew beyond all doubt the Goddess of the Wild Hunt was holding her mate.

Not only did Roxane’s heart ache, but it was the pain she felt coming from the beasts with whom she shared her soul that nearly dropped the demi-goddess to her knees. Specifically, the radiant red water dragon who possessed the ability to breathe fire both in and out of water, cut through the waves like a hot knife through butter and soar the skies with her elegant wings. This majestic creature longed for her mate, Ladon’s beast, the Vermillion Dragon King who held dominion over the warm south seas and Essence of Summer. The Guardian could feel her pining, begging, needing the other half of her soul, the part she hadn’t known was missing, to feel truly whole once again.

Stalking through the woods, Roxane tried to calm the thilykó dráko, “Be patient, drákos mou. Our mate is near. I know your heart is breaking. I feel your soul reaching out only to be left bereft and alone. Please fear not. Save your strength. Ladon and his Dragon are near. I will need you, your strength, your determination and your magic for the coming fight. Together, we can defeat Nicneven and rid the world of her tyranny.”

In an instant, the Guardian of Taurus felt energized. Not only was her crimson winged-warrior ready for the battle, but also the other animals within her, the powerful beasts of land, sky and sea given to her by her Father to call upon.

Coming up behind the castle, Roxane ducked behind a row of overgrown and spiny holly bushes that had once upon a time been part of an elaborate garden maze. Waiting until everyone was crouched in the general vicinity, the Guardian of Taurus pointed, “See that window there? At the bottom corner of the castle? That’s where she’s holding Ladon. I can feel him, just out of my reach.”

Again, Una placed her hand on Roxane’s shoulder. “Have you tried to contact him through your Mating Bond now that we’re closer?”

Nodding, she tried again just for good measure before answering, “Sure have, and it’s just like all the other times, I hear my own voice bouncing back at me.” She shook with renewed fury, growling, “I swear, I’ll pin Nicneven to the wall with my stars, cut out her heart with my short blade and remove her head with my sword then I’m gonna burn the pieces and scatter them to the four corners of the Universe.”

She stood, looking at the people whom she loved with all her heart, her family, the ones who had her back no matter what and added, “So when she gets to the Pits of Hell, not even Uncle Hades can put her back together.”

Clap!

Clap!

Clap!

Turning so fast the world was but a blur, Roxane zeroed in on the source of the mocking slow clap.

Nicneven!

The Dragon, the Witch, and the Wedding by Amy Lee Burgess

Dragon, Witch, Wedding

Tauria dragons possess short tempers, and their ability to hold a grudge is legendary. Tauria witches are as stubborn as they are proud. Their decades-long feud has angered the king who decrees that one witch must marry one dragon and live with him on Zodiac Mountain. Together, they must repair the broken relationship between coven and clan.

Unlike the other witches, Marley has always been able to see the dragons’ side as well as the witches’. She volunteers to be the dragon’s bride believing she can bring peace by persuading everyone to meet in the middle.

Donovan is a typical dragon – arrogant, short of temper, and gorgeous as hell. He is fiercely loyal to his clan, and his idea of peace is for the witches to admit they are totally in the wrong.

Marriage becomes a tense battleground. Neither witch nor dragon is willing to give an inch. Their weapon of choice – fiery passion that threatens to engulf them body and soul.

The crowd around the musicians parted to allow us onto the dance floor. I was aware only of Donovan’s hand in mine, and the way his smile seemed to transport me to a different world – one where we weren’t on opposite sides of a decades-long feud.

Once in the center of the dance floor, Donovan released my hand and gave me a slight bow. I curtseyed in response, and taking me in his arms, he swept me into the dance.

“I see you know the steps.” I tried not to gasp as he whirled us faster and faster.

“Just see if you can keep up.” The challenge in his smile made me laugh.

“Keep up? You call this fast?” I asked. The touch of his hand on my back produced a strange shiver down my spine.

“No,” he said. He tightened his fingers around mine. “This is fast.”

Cheers and whoops erupted from the crowed watching us as Donovan danced us in breathtaking circles, never missing a step. To my credit, I never missed a beat either.

My skirts flared around my legs. Beneath my fingers, Donovan’s shoulder muscles shifted as we danced.

Breathing hard, I grinned at him, enflamed by the music and the man. He smiled down at me, for a moment reminding me of the boy in the clearing, only he was all man now, and I was a child no longer.

Heat stole into my cheeks as I wondered what he’d be like in bed. A thrill of passion seared through me.

Villagers clapped to the beat, urging us on.

“Faster?” Donovan asked.

“Don’t ask me, just do it,” I told him.

His grin widened and we danced faster still. I ignored the stitch in my side and hoped my breath wasn’t too ragged. He barely seemed winded.

“Dragons have more stamina than witches will admit,” he whispered in my ear. “Say the word and I’ll slow us down.”

“Never,” I vowed, tossing my head even though I couldn’t breathe anymore.

He chuckled, sending a warm rush through my already overheated body. His breath in my ear ignited desire. Would he miss a step if I kissed him?

I lifted my face, intending to find out, only to stagger sideways when someone’s shoulder slammed roughly into mine.

Taken by surprise, Donovan lost his balance as he tried to keep me upright, and we both tumbled to the ground. Dancing boots and shoes whirled around us. At some point in the dance, the villagers, witches, and dragons had joined us. Someone stepped on my hand, hard, and I cried out despite myself.

I looked up to see Val’s lovely face as she danced with Rabb. The both of them grinned savagely down at me, and one of them kicked me in the ribs.

“Get up!” Donovan scrambled to his feet, hauling me with him. His lips peeled back in fury, he dragged me off the dance floor back to the bench beneath the willow tree.

“Are you hurt?” He scanned me up and down assessing my appearance.

“Just my pride,” I admitted, struggling to catch my breath. My entire side ached from the kick, but I didn’t want to admit that to him, angry as he was. The last thing this wedding needed was a fight – especially dragon on dragon. “I didn’t mean to pull you down with me, Donovan.”

“Don’t call me Donovan,” he yelled. “I don’t want any of them hearing you call me by name!”

I yanked my hands from his. “Why? Would it humiliate you that much?”

“Marley,” he said, his jaw tight. “Let me lead the dance with the dragons. We’ve got to finesse this just right or the gulf between our people will widen, not narrow.”

“Oh, why do you have to make so much sense?” I cried, bitterness coloring my tone. “I hate that you make so much sense.”

“I hate that you can’t call me by my name. I gave it you, and by rights, you should be able to use it in front of the whole world.” Donovan cupped my face with both his hands, and stared at me with such intensity everything faded away but him. “Please, little witch, only call me by name when we’re alone. Can you do that for me?”

At that moment, my heart beating so hard it ached, I could have walked through fire for him. Unable to speak, I nodded.

Swearing under his breath, Donovan abruptly lowered his head so his mouth captured mine. Entranced by the sweet pressure of his lips, I wound my arms around his neck. Roughly, he yanked me closer, deepening the kiss until my already overtaxed heart threatened to burst.

“Why are these staves empty?” She stroked a fingertip over the five parallel lines over his abs. Smooth skin… ripped muscles. She slithered off his lap, knelt on the floor before him, and rested her arms on his thighs. She leaned, hyperaware of the swollen hump in the crotch of his pants, just inches below her chin, and dipped the tip of her tongue into his navel.

He hissed and managed a ragged answer. “I’m still alive. The song isn’t complete yet. The bare staff over my heart is reserved for my mate… when I find her.”

Hannah hesitated and pulled back a notch. She wondered why his response hit her like high-speed impact with a wall. The thought of his hypothetical mate provoked her to jealousy and anger… and she didn’t like that at all.

“That’s such a perfect answer. It has to be a line.”

Silver sat with his head bowed, his long hair obscuring his face, the only discernable motion his breathing. “I don’t need cheesy lines to score.”

No, he wouldn’t need them, would he? Unexpected envy stabbed at her for the faceless, nameless women who’d come before her. So stupid when all she sought from him was a quickie. There was no reason at all for the stabbing resentment she harbored for every paramour who’d come before her. Jealously was an irrational bitch. Hannah wanted to tease him until he went mad with sexual frustration, obliterating any thought of past lovers from his mind.

Driven by the urgency of her own need, she reached for his fly. She latched onto either side and yanked hard, forcefully separating the row of buttons. The violent action provoked a growl from Silver, a primal warning that emanated deep in his chest. It sent shivers through her already overwrought body. She wasn’t such a fool to believe that his willingness to submit to her connoted weakness. It was a sign of strength, a display of his innate security.

Silver wore snug black boxers which were promisingly tented in front. Hannah hooked both his pants and underwear with her fingers. Obligingly, he lifted his hips while she tugged both garments to mid-thigh, freeing his erection which jutted forth from the dark curls at the base.

She sank to her haunches and took a moment to appraise him. Unsurprisingly, she supposed, his uncut penis was every bit as pretty as the rest of him. He had good length and solid girth, although the end was a hammerhead, thicker than the rest of his shaft. She anticipated that going in, he’d cleave a pussy through. She creamed just thinking about it, a gush of heat and wetness between her thighs.

His cock seemed to stretch toward her like an offered hand. “Hello,” said Mr. Dick, “I’m eager to make your acquaintance.”

A spontaneous giggle escaped Hannah. She sank to her knees and bent her head so the loose strands of her hair teased his skin. She puckered her lips and blew a warm gust of breath over his cockhead. In response, his member twitched. His male scent was rich and earthy, a wild woodland that summoned her home.

“Having a woman laugh at the first sight of your dick is unnerving as all fuck,” Silver said in a hoarse voice. Restless, he stirred and lifted one of his legs just enough to brush the underside of her chin in a not-so-subtle hint.

Excerpt:

“You drive me insane,” he hissed.

Before she could respond, Aramond pulled her to him, his lips claiming hers. The intensity in his kiss sent her into a spiral of need so raw, she couldn’t stop herself. She pressed against him, meeting his tongue stroke for stroke. Unwilling to let him go for even a moment, she tugged at the edge of his shirt. He didn’t seem to need any further encouragement.

Aramond broke their kiss long enough to strip the white T-shirt from his chest. The briefest hint of daylight filtered under the heavy curtains covering the windows, but it was enough for her catlike vision to pick out his broad and rippled chest. His unblemished skin, healed from his fight, took her breath away. She ran her hands over him, enjoying the strength beneath the soft skin.

A purr of pure admiration rumbled in her chest.

He fumbled with the buttons on her shirt, but his large fingers were too big to handle the small fasteners. His brow furrowed as he concentrated, frustration etched in his dark eyes.

Danae couldn’t bear to see him look that way, so she helped him, as eager as him to rid herself of the confining garment. She wiggled out of the shirt, and his eyes widened at her blue and yellow floral bra.

He toyed with the straps and his finger grazed along the edge of the cup, the rough calluses on his fingers teasing her skin. Her nipples peaked, her anticipation growing. He didn’t make her wait long. With a glimmer of pure reverence in his eyes, he trailed one finger under her cup and over her taut nub. A moan eased from her throat, and she gripped his biceps. The muscles tightened under her palms, hard and firm.

“I like your choice of undergarments. Floral is nice, but it has to go.” His teasing words were rough, deep.

A part of her melted for him, right then and there, breaking through a piece of her wall. He reached behind her and unhooked her bra. Tenderly, he slid the straps down her arms until the garment slipped to the floor. He stepped back and her chest ached at the loss of contact.

A breeze from the open window fluttered the curtains, the sound gentle like a moth’s wings, matching the tremble in her heart.

With deliberate intent, he perused her, studying her with his full attention. An appreciative smile curled his lip. “Danae…you are so beautiful.”

Her heart broke open at his declaration, and she ran her finger over his bicep and down his arm. “I can’t tell you how many times I…” …fantasized about you. She couldn’t bring herself to say the last few words. Her jaw tightened. He couldn’t love her, not really, and she couldn’t give herself to him completely.

Love’s Warrior by Jennifer Hilt

Love's Warrior

All’s fair in love and the war to win back his fated mate…

Being the daughter of Aries, the God of War, means Jessica Tindal is an Amazon warrior. But she’s given up her bloodthirsty ways to hideout working as an herbal healing witch. Too bad she’s stuck in an Arctic ice station with a killer intent on framing her.

Enter Paranormal Marshall Carson Slater—ice bear shifter, silver-haired hottie, and oh yeah, Jessica’s ex-husband. Carson arrives in Icy Cap determined to do two things: take down the ice station killer and reclaim his wife. His protective instincts drive him to keep her by his side at all times, which plays perfectly into his plan to seduce her back into his bed and his life. Now all he has to do is prove her innocence and win her heart before the real killer strikes again.

“This person we’re looking for is dangerous.” He rubbed his thumb against his bottom lip.

He did have fantastic lips.

“Someone besides the murderer?” Jessica asked.

His shirt collar was bent slightly. She curled her fingers into her palms to stop herself from smoothing it out.

“Could be a different person. Or the two could be the same. I doubt the two investigations are unrelated.”

“How can I help?” Jessica tilted her head up, up, up to meet his gaze.

“You are to do absolutely nothing with this investigation. You are to do exactly as I tell you so you can say safe.”

“And out of the way.” Jessica fumed. How typical of him.

“This is not the time to play detective. I’m running the investigation with the vamp. Someone will accompany you to breakfast then you may go to your lab until you’re retrieved for dinner.”

She’d forgotten how Carson could be such an arrogant ass.

“So you’re not my jailor?” Jessica headed for the door. Part of her wanted to flee the room.

Part of her wanted to climb that shifter like a monkey tree.

“It’s a sacrifice believe me.” Carson’s voice followed her. “I remember your preference for handcuffs.”

About the Author

The Eyes Have It-1

Hi, I’m Jennifer Hilt – thanks for stopping by. I write sexy paranormal romantic suspense with ice bear shifters because that’s what I love to read. My paranormal romances are set in Icy Cap, hundreds of miles north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. I’m fascinated by the intense world of paranormals living and loving during the cold dark winter nights.

I also write an urban fantasy YA series “The Alchemy of Charm” about a Scottish girls’ boarding school for wizards. I do all this work plus some very excellent procrastination from my Seattle home. I love FB pet videos, take out dinners and John Wick.

zodiac

Aries- loyal, competitive, courageous

Tears of the Dragon by Cara WyldeAries back matter

A myth twisted through the centuries,
A prophecy that survived history,
A cure no one dared to touch…

 

She seeks the Golden Fleece…

As a researcher and professor of Mythology and Folklore at Harvard University, Aileen Callas wants to do much more than tell her students some old, barely authentic stories. She wants to prove the myths are real. After all, one of these ancient myths saved her life as a child. A dark prophecy warns against prying. Undeterred, Aileen assembles a team of investigators and sets on a journey in pursuit of the truth.

 

Cursed to guard an ancient treasure…

Isolated in the mountains, bound to an old, powerful object, Drakon has lost all sense of time and space. He was waiting for something, but he can’t remember what. Or, was it someone? If only he could sleep for an hour, if only he could close his eyes and dream, maybe it would all come back to him: his true name, his mission, his humanity, the memory of her…

 

Unaware of the danger, Aileen steps into the dragon’s cave.

 

Lured by her beauty, Drakon can’t decide if he wants to turn her into dinner, or sweep her off her feet.

 

He wants to eat her (in more ways than one), she wants to save him.

 

But there are vile men on Aileen’s trail, and all they want is to kill the dragon, steal the Golden Fleece, and get rid of the expert in Greek Mythology.

 

Tears of the Dragon is a full, standalone novella, with a happily-ever-after, and NO cliffhangers. Intended for readers 18+

He took a step towards her, and butterflies flapped their tiny wings inside her stomach. He was so hot, that all Aileen could think of was how badly she wanted to sneak her hand through the bars and touch those perfect muscles. He looked up at her, and her heart jumped up in her throat. She swallowed heavily.

 

“You’re human,” she whispered.

 

His blue eyes bore into hers, but he didn’t say anything. His gaze traveled down her curvaceous body, then stopped at her feet, where the tear-shaped bottle lay. With his right hand, he pointed towards the bottle, his fingers trembling.

 

Aileen got the message, and picked the bottle up only to hand it to him. The clear liquid swirled inside it.

 

“The last tear should heal any physical pain or wound,” she said.

 

She watched him weigh the bottle in his hand.

 

“Medea,” he whispered again.

 

Apparently, that was the only word he knew. Aileen chuckled sadly.

 

“I’m not even sure if you understand English. I’ve been talking, and talking… but maybe you just saw this,” she pointed to the object in his hand, “and that was enough to make you change your mind, not my story.”

 

He seemed to ignore her.

 

Not knowing what else to do, and hating the silence inside the cave, Aileen kept talking. If nothing else, the sound of her own voice helped soothe her.

 

“A dragon shifter… It makes sense. Why haven’t I thought about it? The fake stories talked about a dragon guarding the Golden Fleece, while the real story talked about a man Medea fell in love with. I should have known better. I’m a Mythology professor, after all. I should have known every single version carries just a bit of truth in it.”

 

“I understand you.”

 

Aileen gasped. She couldn’t believe the man had just said those words in English, a language he had probably heard today for the first time.

 

“H-how?”

 

He squeezed the bottle and fixed his gaze on her. There was something gentle in his eyes, this time.

 

“I’ve listened to you. I still am. The more you talk, the more words I learn. What did you call this language of yours? English?”

 

“Yes. Oh my God, yes! I can’t believe you can understand and speak English! This is incredible!”

 

“I’m a fast learner,” he smirked. “What’s your name, if I may ask?”

 

“Oh, I haven’t told you?” She beamed and ran a hand through her hair, suddenly worried about how she looked. Well, she looked anything but presentable. “Aileen. Aileen Callas.”

 

“Ai-leen.”

 

She nodded vigorously. His accent made her name sound so much sweeter. She realized just how grateful she was her parents had given her such a beautiful, unique name.

 

“What’s yours?” she asked.

 

His brows furrowed. He thought about her question for a few moments, then shook his head.

 

“I don’t remember. It’s been so long since I saw a human, spoken to a human… It’s been so long since I had to tell anyone my name. I forgot it.”
