A soft noise caught his attention, the sound of denial made without words. It was her. It was Keely. The pain had nearly washed away his awareness of her presence. He looked up and directly into her eyes, greener than emeralds and deeper than the ocean currents that surrounded them. She was clutching one hand at her throat and the silky warm skin of her neck entranced him. He wanted to hold her; to bury his face in the curve where her neck met her shoulder and never let her go.
When she spoke, the liquid cadence of her voice caught at something deep in his soul. In both of his souls.
“Don’t do that,” she said, in a husky voice that sang heat and fire down his spine. “Don’t belittle his gift to you. In all of history, there’s no honor greater than self-sacrifice, and this poor man gave his life for you.”
He froze; both halves of his soul trapped by the sorrow in her voice. Every fiber of his being yearned toward her, desperate to know her. Desperate to hold her. Desperate to have her.
He would never, ever be worthy of her. But he was past caring.
“You wish me to honor him? Your wish is my command, lady,” he snarled. “I honor his sacrifice with that of yours to me.”
With those words, and nothing else beyond some vague knowledge of a Nereid power he’d never wielded, he sprang toward Keely, caught her up in his arms, and willed that they would be elsewhere. Just the two of them. Willed them to a sanctuary he had not visited in more than two centuries.
As a deep, blue-green mist swirled from nothingness to surround him; his last sight was of the shocked faces of Alaric and his brothers. Then, before she had a chance to protest, he tightened his hold on Keely and closed his eyes as the darkness claimed them.
