"Hey," Yully said, seating herself at the bar. The burly blond behind the counter looked up at her voice and smiled. "You took over for Sean?"

"Figured it'd keep me busy 'til Jule brings in someone else. I'm not much for being home alone," Rourk replied. "It was good of you to come yesterday."

"Thanks. I'm so sorry this happened."

"Death is a part of the risk we take. Sean died well, doing his duty. Because of him, more humans are alive than would've been if he wasn't a Guardian."

"Are all Guardians like you and Jule?" she asked.

"As far as I know," Rourk replied. "We all serve the same cause of protecting those weaker than us from evil."

"That's very noble of you."

"It's just what we do." He set a glass of Coke on the counter before her. "You hungry? I hear they make a mean stew."

"Thank you," she said with a faint smile. He left to the kitchen, and her smile faded. She couldn't help thinking about all the Guardians buried around her home and if they'd been as dedicated and noble as those she'd met. She sighed, aware she'd never know the answer to that question. What she knew was that her father and his lies had skewed her outlook on her world for ten years. Her father was dangerous, even if she didn't yet know what he was trying to do.
