- I stood back and watched this Romeo as he spoke to Arius, pausing often to smile over at me. Mitz had been right when she’d used the word slimy. Did he really think I was going to smile back each time he leered at me? What I wanted to do was throw my knife at him. Turning to roll my eyes at the man playing ominous bodyguard, I couldn’t seriously believe he worried about my being around this ‘romeo’.
- Troy just continued to stand there with his arms crossed looking like an enormous statue. When he moved his eyes slowly down my body and then wandered back up to my face, I did the very same thing to him and then winked at him. He actually smirked before turning his glare back to the two men heading our way.
- Arius stopped a few feet away, but the other guy moved right in and dropped to one knee in front of me. “My Lord. My Queen, I am most humbled by your presence.” I lifted my hand, hovering it over his slicked back hair, glancing at Arius, his eyes flicked behind me and then he shook his head barely moving it.
