Abaddon’s eyes met mine, and I turned to head down the dark street toward a quieter spot, a less public place. I wasn’t sure what Abaddon had in mind, but I knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant. I didn’t want anyone to accidentally find us or to valiantly step in, trying to be a hero.
As I headed farther away from the commotion of Bourbon Street, into the darkness, I didn’t need to turn to make sure they were following me.
I could feel them.
As we got farther from safety, my radar grew more and more intense, as if it was sensing their anticipation of what was to come.
I approached a dark alleyway and figured this would be as good a place as any to do it. Only the hazy illumination of a streetlight reached here, and no doors or windows could be seen, just the back sides of two buildings.
An efficient place to die.
It was here and now. I turned to face Abaddon, startled to find him leaning down, merely an inch away.
Top 10 Guest Post
Magdalene's Top 10 Questions…
1. Favorite movie/actor/actress?
I've never had time to notice. Would much rather be sneaking out to hunt Fallen Ones.
2. Favorite song/singer?
Anything that gets my heart pumping or fills me with the exhilaration that I feel when I look at Eran.
3. Favorite food?
Muffuletta sandwich, hands down. It is my go-to lunch. There's something about that salty goodness that I can't resist! Like Eran's lips after a good workout!
4. One item you cannot live without?
My sword. It's a trusty companion when I come across an enemy salivating to take my life or the life of another.
5. Who would you like to meet (dead or alive)?
I can meet just about anyone dead or alive, given my unique ability. However, one entity does remain elusive…the one who created creation, the one who started it all, the one who produced life its self. That one…I have a lot of questions for.
6. Favorite hobby?
Sending our enemies to eternal death, comes to mind, but that's more of a way of life. So I'd have to say…riding my awesome Harley Davidson Sportster, especially into the school parking lot while the faculty are arriving in the morning.
7. Guilty pleasure?
Eran. He's been off limits to me for a long time so you can probably guess why he was the first one to come to mind.
8. Favorite author and book?
The ones who put together the Book of Dossiers on the Fallen Ones. Those individuals are brave, the kind of brave that humbles you. When you think about how close one has to get to an enemy who wants you dead, close enough to know they regularly reek of onions, it leaves an impression in the back of your mind.
9. Do you collect anything?
Rapiers and to a lesser extent fashionable leather fighting attire. With each fall to earth, I seek out both, in the order mentioned. The rapier is self-explanatory. The leather suit, well, there's nothing like kicking some butt in intimidating foreign fashion.
10. Favorite color?
Black, green, brown…Anything that provides camouflage against a background where I'm hiding in wait for my enemies return.
