I tried to paste a pic of the cover here, but apparently Blogger had other ideas.
Tenna whirled to find Jason inches from her, his chest heaving up and down with angry breaths. “What’s wrong with you?” She asked, straining her neck to look up into his face. He seemed fine at the restaurant.
“What’s wrong with me?! Are you serious?!” His voice was a deep growl and by the trembling in his arms and hands he looked on the verge of shifting.
“If you’re going to morph could you at least back up?” She kept her head high and her chin jutted out, but her voice was shaky. She was a little scared. Just because she knew what he was didn’t mean she wanted to be shredded to pieces by his canines.
He took a step back. “Do you have any idea what you’re doing?”
She crossed her arms over her chest. “Yeah, I’m trying to find out who killed that girl. I’m trying to find the bad guys, just like you.”
He shook his head from side to side, the motion slow almost like it was painful. “No, you’re putting a giant bull’s eye right between your eyes.”
Her mouth popped open with a gasp. It took her a couple of heartbeats to understand what he had said. A bull’s eye. She was advertising what she was doing. Even if Curtis was nothing more than a cop, no connection to Hunters, there was bound to be someone on the force who’d been possessed. Someone would notice the research he was doing. He was an honest cop; he’d tell any of his friends on the force whom he’d talked to tonight.
The fact she was a demon Hunter was bad enough. She was Tennalucci, she was the Huntress. As a child she was told by a soothsayer she was to fulfill a prophecy, she would be a major arm in the war against those who rise from Hell. Of course, as a child it scared the shit out of her. She would lie awake at night jumping at every sound positive they were coming for her. Then as an adolescent she thought it was a load of bull. After all, if she was destined to be a great Hunter what the hell was she doing in foster care?
Jason was right. Tenna had just advertised to all interested parties not only was she here, but that she was actively Hunting. Whether she believed in destiny or not wasn’t the question. The question was did all the Legions believe it? Would they now be gunning for her?
