“I’ve wanted to tell you,” he said.
She tried to calm her racing heart. Her only recourse was to lie, because she couldn’t admit the truth. Not to Ramsey. Not to anyone. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
The sadness on his face evaporated, replaced by cold rage. He stalked toward her, causing her to press against the wall.
“Really? You want to lie?”
Ramsey leaned close until his face was inches from hers and she could see the dark silver band around his irises. “I know you have magic, Tara. I know you’re a Druid.”
And then he placed a finger atop her hand.
Confused, she looked down and gasped as wisps of white smoke curled around Ramsey’s thick index finger to his hand, around his wrist, and up his arm.
“This is what happens when I touch you,” he whispered.
Tara was mesmerized by the ribbons of white that continued to circle Ramsey. They originated from her, but when she moved her hand away, the wisps remained with him.
“Try to lie to me now.”
