  • Dreams Made Flesh(Black Jewels,Book 5)(151) by Anne Bishop
  • "For Jaenelle," Lucivar agreed. "And for you."

    Daemon looked up and met Lucivar s eyes…and saw things he hadn't been sure he'd ever see again. Love. Understanding. Acceptance.

    And for you.Those three words healed the last of the rift between them.

    "Thank you," Daemon said, his voice husky.

    Lucivar reached across the table. Daemon locked hands with his brother. They didn't say anything. They didn't need to.

    Finally, reluctantly, Daemon eased back. "I'd like you to take Jaenelle to the Hall. I'll ask Father to come to the Hall to free you up in case there's more than one battlefield. I don't think it will come to that, but…"

    Lucivar nodded. "I'll contact Marian and ask her to come to the Hall to keep Jaenelle company." He waited a beat. "What about Surreal?"

    "I'll find Surreal."

    Lucivar pushed away from the table. "In that case, let's get this done."

    Daemon waited until Lucivar and Jaenelle were on their way to the Hall before trying to contact Surreal. The staff had cleaned off the dining room table and brought him a fresh cup and another pot of coffee.

    Pouring a cup, he sent a call on a Gray psychic thread, aimed toward a mind he knew well. *Surreal?*

    *What?*

    The surly tone relieved him enough to make him smile. *Are you all right?*

    *I'm… fine.*

    *Where are you?*

    *Country house. Don't think it's that far away from Amdarh.*

    *Are you sure you're all right? You sound breathless.*

    *Damn… ax… is dull.*

    Daemon raised an eyebrow. *Do I want to know what you're doing with an ax?*

    *Have you had breakfast?*

    *I've eaten.*

    *Then you don't want to know.*

    He sipped his coffee while he considered how to respond to that.

    *In a few hours, I might have some information for you,* Surreal said.

    *I know who's behind the rumors.*

    *Well… shit.* A pause. *Guess I'll finish this anyway.*

    *Do you need help?*

    *Do you?*

    *No.*
