"Iliana?" he asked. She stilled. He pulled her gently from the trunk and untied her. She was shaking and bloodied, and the bindings left deep marks around her wrists. She pulled off the gag.

"Did Kris send you for me?" she whispered, her gaze darting around. "Did the demons see you?"

"I didn't know you were gone," he admitted. "What happened?"

"They caught me when I went through the shadow world and brought me here, to Sasha." He didn't have to ask what Sasha did to her when her pretty blue eyes flared with white rage and then filled with tears. "Where is he? I want to kill him!"

"He's not-- "

"No matter, we need to escape. Come on, Jade!"

He watched her stride to the door without following, heart heavy at what Kris's lieutenant and his colleague of a few decades would soon discover. She stopped at the door and turned to him.

"Jade, come on!"

"I can't go with you, Iliana," he whispered. "I'm here by choice."

Surprise, then disbelief, crossed her features. "Oh, God, Jade, what did you do?"

"I took care of Sasha," he said somewhat defensively. "I deserve better than how he treated me. How Kris treated me."

"You betrayed us."

"No, I didn't cross that line! I'm just here … there's just two people who I want to avenge myself on!" he said. "I'm not going to hurt anyone else!"
