Chapter 49 Please
- The voice on the other side of the door belonged to my father. What was I going to do? What could I do? Goddess. The body on the other side of the door slammed against the door. My bolt was holding strong but I knew it wouldn’t last for long. The sound quickened and I knew two people were taking turns throwing themselves against the door.
- “You can still get out,” I whispered. “Even if you had to climb down, they wouldn’t be able to get you! You’d be gone by the time they got down.”
- “They would be able to scent me and for all we know, they may already be set up downstairs,” Shane murmured. He took a step close and as much as I wanted to run, I stayed still. The tears streamed down my cheek, the sound of the door splintered, and Shane reached out to touch me. Sparks spread across my cheek as we made contact. I gasped as my eyes widened. Shane seemed unaffected as his thumb ran over my bottom lip.
