Kessar straightened his sleeves. „Oh, we're so going to come back here. In force.”
Sin's features were hard and cold. „Looking forward to it.”
„So am I.” And with that, they turned and left, literally in a V formation.
„Wow,” Kat said under her breath. „They remind me of geese with that action.”
„Yeah, and much like geese, they usually shit all over your lawn.”
Sin glanced down at her as if he could read her thoughts. Oh, that's good. Just what she needed – him inside her head, hearing the fact that she felt compelled by his angry looks. Groovy. Just groovy.
She might as well squeal like a thirteen-year-old while she was at it and tell him how hot he looked when ticked off.
He glared at her. „Where are we? What did you do?”
„I kept you from dying.”
He pushed her hand away from his wound. „Oh, believe me, I could have held my own.”
Kat sat back on her legs. „Yeah, you were doing a real bang-up job of it. I particularly liked the way you were bruising his fists with your face. A few minutes more and I'm sure your heart would have been on the attack… after it was ripped from your chest.”
„The old families tend to stick together and Arik's has probably known ZT's for quite some time now.”
„Yes,” Arik said with a wry grin. „He's like a rash for which there's no cure. It only goes away for a bit before returning unexpectedly to ruin every pleasurable experience. He should have been named Herpes rather than ZT. Or maybe just Herpes Z, since he's a very special irritant.”
Kat laughed. „Very aptly put, hell, it's even Greek and he is creepy – I'll give you that. But I wonder if he knows how you feel?”
„I'm sure he does. He's rather astute and I'm anything but subtle.”
„Damn it. What have we unleashed?”
She sighed. „Doom, destruction… at least he's not nuclear, right?”
A smile toyed at the edges of Sin's lips. „At this point, who knows?”
Kat beamed. „Oh look, Mr. Positive has come out to play again. Welcome back, Mr. Positive. All the boys and girls have missed you so.”
„Yada yada yada.” Kat slowly enunciated each word before she looked at Sin as if bored by their exchange. „Am I the only one who gets sick of the bad-guy monolgue?” She held her arms out like a zombie and mocked Kessar's accent. „ 'Ooo, I'm the big evil. I'm going to kill you all. Just wait while I bore you to tears whit my egomaniacal bullshit. I'm just a demon windbag who likes to hear himself speak and I'm trying to intimidate you.' ”
She looked back at Kessar and put her arms down. „Really, if that's the case, you need to stop letting your mother dress you funny. It's hard to take anyone serious as a killer when he looks likes an invesment banker. The only part of me that's nervous is my checkbook.”
„End of the world is end of the world regardless of whatever term you use for it. The point is, Sin is now going to try to overthrow me again and take my place. Do you know what that means?”
„There will be much rejoicing?”
