Kaylan landed on the bridge. Elijah’s message had been urgent. She scanned the rest of the bridge but there was no sign of anything. No drone of transpos, no sign of any golden eyes shifters stalking about.
She let out a breath, sheathed her knives and brushed her long red hair off her face. It’d been a long night already.
Elijah, where are you? she asked in thought.
Strange, she couldn’t sense him. Her heart started to be faster. What if he couldn’t hear her? What if one of the shifters had – no, she wouldn’t think about that.
You’ll have to come and find me, he called back.
She frowned. Why?
It’s a secret.
Elijah, now is not the night to play games, she warned. Come on, I just want to go home.
Not that they had a real home right now.
Kaylan cost her senses out but didn’t detect anything.
He had to be somewhere.
She swooped down, using her flying ability to land on the road. Something blew across the tarmac. She thought it was leaves but there were no trees on the great bridge.
Kaylan looked up and saw whatever it was had fallen from the sky.
Drawing her knife again and preparing for a possible attack, she bent down and saw it was petals. Rose petals.
What the hell?
She looked up and saw a silhouette standing on the pillar above.
Elijah. She had no that’s strong muscular body anywhere.
Kicking off the ground, she floated up to him.
He grinned when he saw her. His short curly brown hair was slicked back and he wore a black shirt and jeans.
A blanket was spread across the pillar with a bottle of wine and some sandwiches.
“What are you doing?” Kaylan asked. “I thought you were in trouble!”
He gave her a quick kiss. “I wanted it to be a surprise. Happy Valentine’s Day. I know it’s not much but…”
“It’s everything.” She wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him again.
