Next time he woke he could see colours. Not much, just a chink of that same lemon, and gold, and he didn’t want to think what they meant. Instead he reached up a shaky hand and pressed it to Nick’s and held on tight. The flow of compassion and sadness, of anger and fear, was addictive, the taste of it like a fall day. He was stronger, his chest tightening then releasing in time with his heart. He could feel the bones knit and buzz of life was noisy in his ears. He had to stop, to pull back before he went too far. I could overdose on Nick. He’d never tasted anything like this shifter’s life force. Each little part he took meant the magic around Nick grew weaker.
“Is that enough?” Nick asked, as Brody dropped his grip on Nick’s hand.
“For the moment,” he answered.
Nick traced the blood on his arms and nodded. “Your arms are clear,” then he gently touched Brody’s face, “but your skin here is still scarred.”
They sat like that, with Nick staring down at him, his blue eyes filled with sadness, and something inside Brody snapped. Quickly he shoved Nick off of him.
Nick didn’t argue, he simply moved to sit on a chair further away.
“What? You’re staring at me now?” Brody was irritable and angsty all of a sudden.
“I’m not leaving your side.”
“I need the bathroom.”
“I’ll help you.”
Brody pushed himself upright and swung his legs to the floor. When he tried to stand he simply fell back on his ass on the bed.
“I don’t need your help,” he said. Don’t touch me, I can't take any more of your touch.
Nick tilted his head. “How about I open the door for you, run you a shower and just stay out of your reach unless you need me.”
Suddenly Brody was guilty for his irritable reaction. Nick couldn’t help having the perfect combination of emotions inside him, or that they tasted of sunshine and earth at different times.
“I’m sorry,” he apologised. “Thank you for getting me out of Glitnir, for saving my life, just…” he held up his hand when Nick smiled at him. “My ability to stop feeding is at a low ebb, don’t come too close or I could kill you.”
“Wolves are hard to kill you know.”
“Not impossible though. Never impossible. I was an assassin, I am an assassin, I could kill you here and now.”
Nick leaned forward in his chair and rested his elbows on his knees. “Like to see you try big man. I can probably piss faster than you, let alone run.” He smiled again and Brody couldn’t help smiling back.
“Take me seriously,” Brody warned.
Nick stood up and held out a hand which Brody refused to take. Still it was enough to know that if he was going to fall that Nick was there to help. This way, with Nick hovering behind, Brody managed to get to the bathroom, use the facilities then wait as Nick filled the bath. When he stripped and climbed into the warmth and the bubbles Nick insisted were some kind of magic-filled herbal remedy, abruptly he realised he was feeling better. Time to get the questions out in the open, but first of all a summary of the list so far.
“So I’m guessing this is an safe house, run by the Underground of course. Also, that Hestion is Declan’s missing father—and hence the rest of Declan’s family were here— that you can't go back to Glitnir because they will kill you, and I can't go back to Glitnir because they will kill me too.”
“Pretty much,” Nick agreed. He’d put down the toilet seat and now sat perched on the lid. “I don’t want to talk about all that though.”
“You don’t? What is it you want to discuss?”
“About why the wolf inside me demands I never leave your side.”
