So, why am I reminding you of all this? Today is the book birthday for TLC's newest book, SWEET LEGACY, the last book in the Sweet Venom trilogy.
My hands shake a little as I fumble with the backpack zipper.
“I’m perfectly all right, Grace,“ she insists. “Truly.“
I watch her, study her, checking for—I don’t know—signs of pain or a bad
reaction to the poison or something. She pats me on the arm before grabbing
one of the reorganized backpacks and carrying it over to where Gretchen has
piled the ones staying here. Except for the disheveled hair and slightly
pale skin, she looks fine, though. I hope that means she really *is* fine.
“She’s stronger than she looks,“ Thane says.
He’s watching her intently, just like I was doing a second ago.
He’s right. She may not have Gretchen’s physical strength, but inside she’s
tough. Bugging her and making her reassure me over and over isn’t very
helpful or healing.
“I know,“ I reply, turning to lean back against the table.
Thane doesn’t move. He just stands there, staring blankly across the cave.
He’s not quite looking at her anymore. Like he’s trying to act casual.
After more than half a lifetime together, I can read him too well. I can
see beneath the surface. She drops a bottle of water and his eyes are
immediately on her as she bends to pick it up. Though he’s trying to hide
it, his attention is fully focused on Greer. Something more is going on
here than he wants me to know, and considering everything that’s happening it’s past time he told me. Secrets lead to problems.
