Virgo Book 6 Zodiac Dragon Guardians... It's coming and it's going to blow you away... *** “They said I died…did you know that?” I sucked in a slow and steady breath. Careful now…the Saint warned, but it wasn’t a caution to her…only me. “Yes. You died in my arms. I tried to get you to your kind, so they could help you.” “My kind,” she repeated, and then met my gaze. “So then tell me, Dragon. If I died in yours arms, how the hell did my kind bring me back?” The savage growl that resounded in my mind reached the edges. My Dragon raised his head to stare at me. His lips trembled and curled from glistening teeth. “I’d say it was a miracle.” One perfect brow lifted. “A miracle?” She seemed to like repeating my words, just to mock my lies, but she was nothing more than flesh and blood all tethered with a fragile string. And it was that string I protected. It was that string I saved. The laws of mortals were simple; they were here one minute, and gone the next. But I couldn’t let her go—not then…and not now. And if I couldn’t bend Heaven, then I’d raise Hell. I cleared my throat and answered. “Modern medicine is marvelous now days…so I heard.” Her other brow rose. “You’re lying,” her hand slipped from the railing. She eased back against the elevated top of the bed and finished. “But right now I just don’t care. This isn’t over, Dragon, only a damn reprieve.” Pain tightened the muscles of her jaw and dulled the spark in her eyes. “The next time I see you I want an answer. The truth would be nice.” She closed her eyes and and murmured. “The truth.” Her breaths slowed and then deepened into sleep and yet I couldn’t bring myself to leave…not yet. I dropped my hands took a step forward, pulled by something far greater than myself. “Doc,” the soft word slipped from my lips and echoed in the room. She gave a soft murmur and stole a breath. I reached out and skimmed the steel railing, finding the patch of warmth where her hand had been. A tremor raced, shaking my fingers as I reached for her cheek. “Can you hear me?” There was nothing but the hiss of air between her lips as I touched her hair. Strands fell through my fingers like grains of sand. Caustic words slipped free. “She warned me you know, the seer, Odessa. If I hadn’t gone that night…if I hadn’t taken you from that place, you’d be gone, and not even the Saint could bring you back. You wanted the truth.” I grazed her warm cheek with my knuckles. “The truth is…the truth is I…I’m glad you're alive, Doc. I’m glad you’re alive.” I dropped my hand from her face as straightened. I couldn’t say the words, not to her, not even to me. “I’ll be seeing you Doc. Maybe we’ll both get our truth.” I left her with the monitors and the light. I left her when the last thing I wanted was to turn away. But her truth would wait…just like I’d waited for over three thousand years for someone exactly like her. #zodiacdragons #docwantsthetruth
