As the stakes rise, encompassing more than just her relationship with Ethan, will Nara make the ultimate sacrifice?
DESTINY by P.T. Michelle
Ethan leans against the sanctuary’s doorway, shaking his head. “I don’t understand, Nara. How did you get all these ravens to follow you here?”
I hold my hand out to Patch, who pecks at it. “Hey, be nice,” I say softly. The raven dips his head and puffs up his neck feathers, making me laugh. “Show off.”
As soon as I turn to address Ethan, he pushes off the doorway, alarm in his gaze. “Nara, watch out!”
A flutter of black appears in my periphery right before Patch lands on my shoulder, his bird feet gripping my jacket. I smirk and fold my arms. “It’s all right. He would never hurt me.”
Ethan’s forehead crinkles. “Ravens can be unpredictable.”
“Not as much as you might think.” I gesture toward Patch, who’s currently swaying back and forth on my shoulder. “Think of Patch…of all those like him as an extension of you.”
He crosses his arms and shakes his head. “I know I have a connection to ravens, but they’re just birds.”
“Oh really?” The one way I know we’ve connected in the past was when Ethan thought about me. I bite my lip and tell myself this is to help him remember. “Think about touching me.”
A sensual smile tilts his lips. “I’d rather do that than think.”
Okay, maybe this isn’t the best idea, considering I’m supposed to be keeping my distance from him. Then again, it’s the only one I’ve got. I purse my lips. “Just do it.”
“Fine.” His lips quirk, and as I see all kinds of sexy thoughts scrolling across his face, the birds begin to titter and hop around as if agitated, but nothing else happens.
“Concentrate.” I huff, setting my hands on my hips. “Walk outside the sanctuary behind the wire.”
Ethan grunts, but does as I ask. “Why am I out here?”
I nod to the fence between us. “Pretend you can see me but you’re unable to reach me.”
“How is this any different from reality?”
“Ethan. Now, think about what you’d do if nothing stood between us.”
I ignore the scowl on his face. “Close your eyes.”
As Ethan let’s his eyes slowly close, I do the same.
“I don’t like this.”
The hurt in his voice pulls at my heart. I can tell he’s talking about more than this exercise.
“Just…think about me, about us,” I say. “Imagine what you’d think about if we could only talk on the phone. What would you wish for?”
“You. With nothing between us.”
His wish, full of heat and want, carries on the sharp cold wind whipping through the bare trees. The longing wraps me in a layer of warmth, tugging at my heart, making my body tingle.
