Up much earlier than I want to be, but such is life. I might write about why I’m up early later, but for now, here’s some fiction:
From Protector of the Grey House:
Joseph and Mierka believed she had a right to fight and train as if she were her own army. She was fighting Slayers and had to watch her back for Edwin’s men, too. Edwin finally had his coronation, without the presence of Vincent and his men. He ignored them for the better part of a year, then had taken an interest in Vincent’s businesses again. It was all part of the plan. As long as Edwin was interested in the human aspect of Vincent’s world, he would not be interested in what Vincent’s vampires were doing.
“No word from your spies?” He aimed the question at Anthony’s reflection.
“No sir.” Anthony told him about having her followed when she did not return after the second day. Vincent was angry, but not surprised. He took the information in stride and asked for any information. Unfortunately, Wayne had not reported for four days.
