OUT FOR BLOOD

I didn’t see Quinn. Not that I was looking for him. And not that his twin, Connor, wasn’t standing right next to Solange, looking exactly like him. Except that Connor’s hair was shorter. Still. I followed Kieran to Hart’s side. He kept sending Solange sidelong glances. She smiled, pale as a pearl. Her fangs were very sharp but delicate. Treaties were all well and good in theory but something else entirely when a vampire was flashing fangs at someone you considered to be your brother. I wondered if I should worry about him. “Hunter,” Hart smiled at me. “Glad you could make it.” “Thank you, sir.” I tried not to flutter and went overboard into formal cadet stance. He was the head of the entire society and he knew my name and he’d asked for me specifically. “At ease,” he said. “You’re just here to witness history,” he added. “Yes, sir.” “We’re nearly ready,” Liam called out pointedly. Quinn sauntered out of the woods, a vampire girl on his arm. They were both grinning and it was totally obvious what they’d been doing. He was just as gorgeous as I remembered, his long hair falling to his shoulders, his eyes so blue they didn’t seem real. The girl giggled. I refused to stare. Mostly. It wasn’t my fault if I could still see him out of my peripheral vision. It was a hunter’s duty to be aware of her surroundings. •36•
