From Protector of the Grey House:
“More impact this way. You don’t understand what’s going on here, do you?” There was a small smile on his face, which was a vast difference from his hyena smile.
“He died saving my life, she wants me here to mourn.”
Vincent continued to give her his slight smile, then placed his arm around her lower back and steered her toward the stairs. She held onto the box as if it held delicate roses. They walked silently to their sitting room. Once inside Vincent took out his remote and shut down the surveillance equipment. He let her lead the way through the bedroom and the bathroom, and turned off the recording equipment as they went. He opened the door for them but allowed her to travel through the maze and to his bedroom without him. All the dangerous items had been removed from the tower room. She was allowed in the room, but only to retrieve the sword or return it.
