I was alive. ” I opened my eyes. Light speared into my head. I closed my eyes against the light and the pain, but the pain stayed. I turned my head, and that was a mistake. The pain was a nauseating ache. It felt like the bones in my head were trying to slide off. I raised hands to cover my eyes and groaned.
I stared at him, at the blood stain on his shirt. I smiled a very careful smile. “This little wound was luck and nothing more. Do not let it make you overconﬁdent,” Aubrey said. Overconﬁdent; now that was funny. I barely managed not to laugh. “I understand the threat, Jean-Claude. ” “Stop calling me that. ” “This,” I motioned to Catherine’s blank face, “was hardly necessary. You could have beaten me up, threatened my life, offered me more money. ” He smiled, lips tight. “All that would have taken time.
She would die,” Jean-Claude said. “Wait just a minute,” Catherine said. ” Catherine’s face was gaining a lot of color. Anger did that to her. “She’ll go to the police,” I said. ” “That’s it! ” She grabbed my hand, and I didn’t stop her. Aubrey moved up behind her. ” She stiffened. Her ﬁngers dug into my hand; incredible tension vibrated down her muscles. She was ﬁghting it. God, help her. But she didn’t have any magic, or cruciﬁxes. Strength of will was not enough, not against something like Aubrey.
