Chapter 64 For You: Cyrus Pov
- Damn it! I'd used my body as a shield, but the best I'd done was redirect the bullet. I stood on shaky legs in front of Leo. I couldn't figure out where the bullet had come from. My body was burning under the skin. Silver. The bullet was silver and fuck! The pain was fucking with my concentration. I tried to turn to Leo and my legs gave out.
