From Protector of the Grey House:
Anthony unclenched his teeth and stated angrily, “I don’t give consent! I don’t trust her and still believe she’s out to harm you!”
“This is why I am making you my First Lieutenant. I trust your judgment, even when I do not agree.” He sighed deeply, startling some of those present. “Since I don’t have your consent, I won’t change her. Order must be maintained. Now if you’ll excuse me, I wish to be with Natalia. This may be our last night together.”
He was quiet for a moment then turned toward Natalia and Joseph.
“Sir, let me change her.” The quiet voice crept up his skin and pierced Vincent’s eardrums.
