She didn’t have to tell him anything, Garrett knew this. Yet she had done so anyway, she had trusted him after only knowing him for a few hours, she had told him who she was and hoped he would not tell.
She didn’t even lie to him, not when he asked.
Because I do not trust them, but I cannot go against my instincts to lie to you…
Every little thing he had ignored came flooding back, the way her eyes constantly stayed on him, how even though she was engaged in something else, her attention was still on him. The way she protected him, the fury in her eyes and the way they shone with jealousy as Kate touched him.
She offered the Denali aid, had brought him and them back to her home – though reluctant – she still did it and it was because of him. She bared herself before him, peeled back the layers she had covered herself with so he could see.
She protected him.
His brain screamed mine.
“I didn’t escape unscathed. I spent many years in pieces, strewn across the country I suspect. A punishment.”
Her words echoed loudly in his head, the tone matching up with the familiarity of his own grief when he was finally free. When he did not wish to walk among the living and had nearly walked into the fire himself.
In pieces… He remembered seeing the fire dance across her skin harmlessly. She could not die by flames, could not seek the temptation of deaths embrace to end the suffering she must be going through. Sabel was alone, that he could tell. Why? he didn’t know and it hurt him to know this.
And he had run away from her…
“Oh… oh, Kate what have I done?” He asked.
