I got a screamer tonight- Jace had just certified it. The Vigilantes latest poison.Huh. Lets see what you got then.I took the drink once Martin was finished mixing it, gulped it down and relished the heat that burned my throat and warmed my inside.Well? he smiled, hopeful.All right, not bad.Throwing a look around the room, I tried finding familiar faces but to no avail.So, wheres your boss?Martin didnt immediately reply, so I turned back to him, frowning at the raised eyebrows.Which one are we talking about, Heather?I felt my hackles raised again but then noticed Martins smile, teasing and light with humor.I gave him a narrow look and said, You said Jace approved this mediocre drink just now.Hey now.Its not the ultimate knock yourself out stuff.Yeah, yeah. Martin shrugged. He was here an hour ago but I dunno where hes gone to.Right. I hesitated, then, affecting nonchalance, said, Seen Logan?Martin gave a snort but cut it short when he saw my look. I have, actually. But he took off soon after.I stared moodily at my drink. So much for a short dress. None of them was here.Probably for the best, I thought, gulping in the rest of what Martin had called a screamer. Jeez, it was quite something.The whole thing was fun, yeah, especially after getting unceremoniously dumped by that bastard Will. It was more than flattering to have two men going after you. That they happened to be brothers just made it a little dirty, a little spicy.But it had gotten a little out of control. This was not me, at all, dressing up so... irresponsibly and coming over here, of all places, to find one of the Mercer men.-To drag you to bed.-Yeah, well, what else was I going to do with men like Jace and Logan? Building a future together? Planning on children and white picket fences?
