I know is Dusk has always treated me right, and in return, I let him know if
our family is in danger and I help scope out places for you all to go to if you
can no longer stay where you’re at. Just like this place. I mean, it’s not the
Ritz and it’s not a mansion, but it’ll do for now.”
are we…” Faye cupped her hand over her mouth. “Are we really safe here?” Her
eyes moved from the game at the other end of her bed to Essie, who smiled at
her question.
would have never told Dusk to come here if you weren’t. Hueman is safe.
Promise,” she answered. “Dusk did ask me this morning to try to find another
just in case, so I’m taking off later today to check one out in Arizona.”
thought he promised Salome we wouldn’t move again?”
forgot. You did hear us talk about that this morning, didn’t you?” Essie said.
“Yeah, well, Dusk promises many things. Some, he can’t keep.”
can’t leave, Essie.”
have to. I want to. Faye, I know I don’t have to do this. I could just leave
and disappear—maybe find someone, start a family of my own—but he’s been there
for me. He found me and saved me from the streets. He treated me like I was his
daughter. You know, I used to ask him to make me into what he is. I mean, every
day I’d ask him and not once did he give in. He didn’t even think about it.
Finally, one day he told me he didn’t want to pass that type of burden to me.”
She reached forward and grabbed the gaming device from the bed. “Dusk is all about
family. We’re his Achilles heel. He wants what’s best for you.” She handed it
to Faye. “He was devastated about Maddy’s death, and he wants to do everything
in his power to protect you, Salome, and Tristan.”
at Essie’s calming and self-assured smile, it was hard to believe anything
else. They were safe in Hueman, right?
ruffled Faye’s hair. “So you said the final boss on this level was super hard
and crazy. I want to see.” She changed the subject.
picked the game back up. “Okay.” She played for a few minutes before Essie
spoke again.
said this guy who attacked you last night was wearing some stone around his
more like a piece of a stone, a shard or something,” Faye replied, with her
gaze still glued to the game.
you sure it was a shard and not some rock?”
shrugged. “Looked like jewelry. I don’t know.” She then turned toward Essie.
body posture perked up. “Just curious. It’s not every day some guy carrying a
crossbow and a machete shows up wearing jewelry and ready to slay some wraiths,
if you know what I mean.”
didn’t like it,” Faye said. “Looking at it made me feel…”
don’t know. Weird. I think.”
played a few minutes more until they heard slow footsteps creeping up the
stairs. The noise caught Faye off guard.
door opened, and Tristan stood in the threshold. “I come bearing gifts!” In his
hand he held a used guitar. “Found this in the dumpster.” Its brown-stained
wood had huge black splotches, and it was missing a few strings.
guitar?” Essie shoved off of Faye’s bed.
He held it toward her. “Back in our old place, you mentioned something about
eventually starting up your own band. Here you go.”
grabbed it and eyed it closely. “Looks like it’s seen better days.”
it can see them again with a bit of TLC. Seemed like a waste to leave it
there.” He reached into his pocket and approached Faye. “And this is for the
little spooked wraith baby over here.” He tossed a game cartridge on her bed.
“Thought you’d like this.”
the game lightened her mood. She picked it up and smiled.
sure if it still works, but figured it was worth a shot.” Tristan grinned.
popped the overused cartridge out of her gaming device and slotted the new one
in. At first it didn’t work so she pulled it out, blew on it, and pushed it
back in. When the main screen loaded, she screamed, excited. “Thank you!”
say I never got you anything.” He laughed. “You can play it on the way too.”
almost didn’t hear him over her excitement. “On the way?”
sat back on the bed and plucked the only two strings on the guitar. “Where’re
you going?”
to where Maddy died.”
you sure that’s such a good idea?” Essie asked.
course, why wouldn’t it be?”
not?” He directed the question back at her. “Even if that human was just lucky,
he shouldn’t be allowed to get away with killing one of us. What kind of
precedent does it set? If this human is going to start thinking and telling other
assholes that wraiths are easy to kill, then we’ll all be targets, if we aren’t
already.” He folded his arms. “He can’t and shouldn’t get away with it.”
surprisingly caring of you.” Essie nodded.
have my moments. I figured I could catch his scent from the site and track him
down for a one-on-one talk about the whole thing. Clear up any misconceptions
he might have gotten into his pathetic human head. So come on, New Blood.” He
winked at Faye. “Let’s get a move on.”
shook her head. “I… don’t think we should. Dusk wouldn’t want us to go back
you always do what Dusk wants you to do?” Tristan rolled his eyes. “This is the
only way we can find this bastard.”
thoughts moved to her attacker. She shuddered. “Well, no… but we can’t go
anyway. Dusk and Salome took the van.”
can call a cab.” He turned toward Essie. “You got a number for one?”
got numbers for all of them.” She continued to pluck at the strings.
there you go. So come on, New Blood. Let’s go find this scary human hunter
wannabe and teach him a lesson.”
hesitated. “Are you coming with us, Essie?”
shook her head. “You two go. I’ll probably be gone by the time you get back.”
Dusk is sending you off to find another place,” Tristan commented. “When’s your
bus leaving?”
tonight,” she answered.
about this?” he said. “Call us a cab. We all go together, do a little snooping
around, and walk you to the bus station to catch your bus.” He winked. “Dusk
did say he didn’t want us to go anywhere by ourselves.”
groaned. “I’m not lying to Dusk.”
not.” Tristan held out his hand toward her. “We are.”
Faye said, correcting him. “You are, and you shouldn’t lie about that.”
let’s just go.” He wiggled his hand at Essie who ignored it.

still wasn’t convinced, so she hesitated to move.
worry, New Blood. I’ll protect you.” Tristan headed for the door. “Now come on,
we should leave before the lovebirds come back.” He headed back downstairs.
you leave tomorrow?” she asked Essie. “Stay another day?”
Can’t. You know I’m not much of a settler, sweetie.” Essie rested her hand on
Faye’s shoulder. “Don’t worry. It’s all going to be okay. I promise. I’ll only
be gone a week or two.” She pulled out her phone.
if he’s there? That man?” She slipped off the bed. She didn’t want to go back
there, not even with Tristan. “He could still be there, waiting for us.”
the day in front of people? Doubt it.” She headed for the door. “Tristan is
right about one thing. That man can’t get away with what he did. I wasn’t
Maddy’s biggest fan, but I do know that she deserves justice, and you and
Tristan can get it for her.” She looked back at Faye. “Just don’t go and tell
Dusk I said that.”

We just
meet our final character Essie. She sounds like she is always bubbly and happy.
Do you have a favorite from the characters we have met? I was working my way
through and with each new character we meet, I was thinking to myself this is
my favorite character, but y’all I don’t have a favorite at this time because I
absolutely enjoyed meeting every one of these characters.  Once we get the first installment of the Dead
Trilogy: The Not-So Dead maybe I will be able to choose a favorite than. I make
no promises though. All these amazing characters and their unique and different
traits is really gonna make Isaiyan’s newest trilogy standout. I just know this
trilogy is going to be the top Urban Fantasy books of 2020.
