A Spotlight from The 131 Preview Review
Without a sound he was standing behind her. She could feel his breath on her back and shoulders, his powerful body so close that it warmed her skin.
“Why have you come here?” he whispered. “Who told you of this place?”
She turned around and leaned against him. “That old fool Gordain was full of wine and told Serina. Tegrin, this is a wonderful place! There is no king, no master. We can do whatever we want without being punished!”
“Natiana, there are laws here, too. Not all humans are as weak as this.” He looked into the kitchen.
Tegrin stared at the nude body slumped in the kitchen chair. “You used your body to take his life?” His voice was low and ominous.
For the first time Natiana felt she was in danger. She turned around, looking at the man whose life she had just taken. She looked over her shoulder at Tegrin.
“It did not mean anything, just a means to an end.”
This was the first time in his life that Tegrin thought he would lose control. He stared at the woman he thought he knew. They had been together for many years. While other Guardians took many concubines, he chose only Natiana.
Her deceit gave him the strength to kill her. He had feared he would not be able to, until this moment but she had played a game that had only one ending.
She leaned against him and whispered, “Will you kill your lover Tegrin?”
Even above the music Tegrin could hear the light scratch of her blade against its leather sheath. He lifted her face to his and kissed her hard on the lips. In the seconds before her blade left its sheath, Tegrin’s Dropon sliced through her spine. He held his lover and watched her life fade away.
