Abby and crew take rest at the beach. What could go wrong?
Isiah smiled and leaned into him. I looked up, taking in the sight of them so close together. My tongue flicked out, and I could almost taste how happy my twin was, like a flavor in the air.
"Carthera clans tend to be pretty casual about nudity," Ahsran explained. I knew that from my work with my patients, but it was different when it was my brother's mate.
"Not like men in the military are any better either. I was shocked the first week or two at basic at all the naked men changing around me before I got used to it." Isiah laughed at the memory.
"Look, I'm sorry I let myself believe that you could ever be involved in killings but--"
"That video had to be damning," Isiah interrupted.
I nodded once. "Not to mention I was in shock over how Davis was treating me. He shut down our bond and tried to kill me. I was already injured when Benny attacked me the night before and I had a head wound. None of that excuses it but. . ."
Isiah stood up and leaned over me, pulling me into his arms. "If you need it, I forgive you. You're my brother. You have been through a lot while I've been gone. I know life hasn't been easy for you, Ellis. I'm sorry that I couldn't be here, but I just feel like I need to be where I'm at and doing what I do."
I took a deep breath and squeezed Isiah back before he sat back down. I waved away his apology though. "Don't be sorry for doing what you think is right. I do understand that feeling, even if I can't understand what you do."
"Well what I am doing right now is trying to save the Carthera in the country that don't hate humans and want to subjugate our entire race. It's dangerous, but look what it got me too." Isiah looked up at Ahsran with sappy look on his face which of course led into an embrace.
The pain was back. I kept it to myself. "I'm happy for you, I really am."
Ahsran pulled back and yawned. "Sorry. We haven't had much sleep the last few days."
"No, no. It's been a long day for me too. We should get some rest."
"There was something you said earlier that I wanted to ask you about actually." Ahsran's shoulders were tensing back up.
I looked up at him in surprise, taking in his defensive posture. Whatever it was, it couldn't be good. "Um, okay. Go ahead."
"You said that your apartment was being watched?"
I grimaced. "Yes. Davis has been trying to get in touch with me. I've seen him watching me at work, and I glimpsed Benny at least twice driving by my apartment late at night. I left him a nasty message with his bartender telling him to leave me alone though."
"This Davis," he paused, "he's your mate?"
"Is he by any chance Davis Retic, also known as 'The Snake'?"
He looked annoyed when I shrugged. I sighed and nodded.
"So, you have a Snake Carthera mate with a deadly reputation that even scared the crap out of my father and you're telling me that you told him to leave you alone and expect him to listen to you? You don't think that if your car stays gone overnight, he's not likely to try and track you down?"
"He's not like that with me, at least he wasn't." I could hear the bitterness creeping back into my voice. I thought I was different to Davis, that we had a real connection and trust building. He'd shown me a very different side of himself, one I knew that others must have never seen from his reputation. The jumble of memories I'd gotten when we bonded had shown me so much of him, but there was a lot I didn't know. I never would now.
"We can't really risk it. What if someone sees your car here? This isn't a big city."
I ran my hand through my hair.
"You're right. I'm going to have to go home." I didn't really feel up to it, but I wasn't willing to give away Isiah's and Ahsran's presence. Not just because I didn't want to go home and deal with the messages and attempts Davis wouldn't stop as he tried to get me back. My hand went to the bridge of my nose, pinching as I tried to ease the pressure I could feel building along with my stress level.
I knew my brother wasn't a killer now, but the
