“LOOKING IN through the window, Kadin knew that the girl
sleeping in the bedroom was the one he had been looking for all
these years. He watched as she lay in bed perfectly still, and he could
feel energy surrounding her while she slept. This was the wonderful
There was only one way he would be able to talk to her without
her completely freaking out, one way to make sure she realized the
things that were at stake. He needed her. If he didn’t get her, it was
possible that all hell would break loose on earth. Everything she
loved and cared about would come to an end if she didn’t join him.
“Stalking the ladies, I see.”
The voice would have made a normal person jump, but Kadin
wasn’t normal. Kadin came down from the Aether and looked at
Frostbite, his white hair perfectly flipped across his head. Frostbite
was gorgeous in a manly kind of way, with paper-white skin and
glowing blue eyes. The air around them changed, and Kadin knew
he couldn’t tell Frostbite about Heather.
“What are you doing here?” Kadin asked. It wasn’t like he and
Frostbite were friends. If anything, they were enemies, and the fact
that Frostbite seemed to enjoy popping out of nowhere worried
Kadin. It didn’t make things any better that their people were
already suspicious of what Kadin was doing.
“Checking to make sure that you don’t do anything stupid,”
Frostbite replied. He waltzed over to Kadin and whispered in his
ear, “Or rather, anything that could put us in jeopardy.”
“I wouldn’t do that,” Kadin snapped. “I think our people know
that by now.”
Frostbite stepped away, smirking with the corner of his mouth.
“Kadin, we’re at a time in the world where we need you. You
running off on these little quests for some…girl that you think will be
able to help us…it’s wrong. They’re going to find you.”
And by they, Frostbite meant their people. Kadin had been
running for so long—he was sick of running, but what other choice
did he have? “How do you manage to keep finding me?”
“Because I’m the only one really bothering to look.” Kadin
watched as Frostbite’s hands turned to ice blue. His fingertips
glistened and he wondered if Frostbite was going to attack him. “We
are not friends, so whether you live or die doesn’t concern me. But
the fate of our people does concern me. Do you understand? If you
get to be too dangerous, they will do anything to stop you. Anything.”
Without another word, Frostbite disappeared from sight, leaving
Kadin to ponder the things that he had said. Would his own people
really turn on him? He tried not to think about it as he felt the tingles
across his arms.
What they didn’t know was that Kadin was already more
dangerous than they thought—or could be, if he didn’t use his new
abilities the right way. He was finally able to unleash the entity that
was locked away by his people thousands of years ago.
