Deidre. She frowned, not recognizing the voice. Darkyn said nothing about leaving Hell after they returned from her apartment. She hesitated, though, not wanting to walk into another trap of Harmony's death dealers. Darkyn wore her out, and when she'd woken, she was alone.

On her way to see Zamon, she stepped into an empty hallway before trying to call a portal. She saw someone waiting for her in the center of the in-between world and recognized Rhyn. At ease with the half-demon friend of Gabriel, she entered the shadowy land. He waited for the portal behind her to close.

"Thought I'd check up on you," he started. "Figured you had to make a deal that broke bad for you."

"Um, no. Why?" she asked curiously.

"Five minutes after you left, he called off the attacks." Rhyn eyed her. "I don't want you to hurt yourself to make a deal that benefits me. I'll make a deal with him first."

Deidre grinned. With a whoop, she twirled in the middle of the shadow world.

"So you did do something," he said, waiting.

"I think so," she replied. "I basically asked him to stop."

"Just like that."

She blushed, smile on her face.

"You asked him not to kill a few kids, at the request of the half-breed he fucking hates, and he just agreed."
