I woke up to an
impossible reality. There was no way I was in this room, in this bed, tucked
between these sheets. There was no way I could smell Velaris again, that I
could close my eyes and faintly hear the sounds of people walking down the
block. Mostly, there was no way I could feel a dip in the bed beside me, no way
I could scent him so close.
I opened my eyes and
turned over with a groan. Rhys’s eyes flashed open and he was leaning over me,
his hands brushing the hair from my face faster than I could react. He kissed
my forehead and smiled down at me, his violet eyes shining in the sunlight.
Yes. Definitely real.
He didn’t say anything,
just snapped once. A bowl of soup appeared on the desk beside me. I struggled
to push myself up, but I was still too weak. Rhys lifted me easily and propped
me up on the pillows. He grabbed the bowl and spoon and lifted a spoonful of
broth to my lips.
I didn’t even try to
protest as he made me eat the entire bowl, then another. He would have tried to
get a third had I not leaned forward and rested my head in the crook of his
“Rhys.” I breathed.
He sighed contentedly and
rand a hand down the back of my head, his fingers tangling in my hair.
“I missed you so much.”
He said. “I panicked when you disappeared. I think I went a little insane there
for a while.”
Indeed, I thought as I
examined his form. “Did you eat at all?”
He barked a laugh.
“You’re the one concerned for me? You- you… what exactly happened, Feyre?”
My gut began to freeze
up, tension locking my shoulders. I forced myself to keep my eyes open, for I
knew that if they shut I would just see them.
I took a breath before answering.
“They knocked me out when
I was cleaning up the camp. All my food was laced with Faebane, though I only
got enough food to ensure I lived and that I couldn’t use magic. A week ago,
something happened. Something none of us could handle. And though there was no
time we could trade, since there was no time I could carry my food anywhere,
the others gave me some of their food. So I fought my way out, and made my way
to that cave. As soon as I felt you again, I told you where I was.”
He frowned. “But who took
you? Where did you go?”
“Please,” I shuddered.
Faces started flashing in front of me. “Please don’t ask me those things. I
won’t- I can’t talk about them.”
He hesitated, but
eventually nodded. He shifted and pivoted himself around me so I was leaning
back on his chest and he was leaning on the headboard of the bed. He wrapped
his arm around my waist and made a cocoon with his wings around us. I smiled
slightly and let my head fall back on his shoulder.
I was asleep again before
either of us could say anything.
I strode through the
crowd, pushing people away when they didn’t move fast enough. I made my way up
the steps and turned to face the Court of Nightmares. Now that Feyre was back safe, I had to do what I had been postponing for too long.
“Kier?” I called out.
Silence from the crowd.
Finally, he stepped forward.
“What is it, girl?” He
I raised a brow. “Asking
to get another broken bone or two, are we?” I taunted. The crowd murmured. “I’m
here on official business. I have the misfortune of being selected to assess
the city. I begin in a month.”
The room exploded, all
the lords asking questions at once, rushing at Kier, turning to each other. I
smiled once more and disappeared.
The morning light was
just starting to filter in, causing the sheets to be outlined in soft gold.
Feyre had gotten back yesterday in the very early morning, but I hadn’t had the
time or will to go see her. Not when he was here.
I smiled and laid my head
on Cassian’s chest. Though he was only half awake, he stirred and wrapped an
arm around my shoulders.
He had winnowed us to an
old mansion, one he had briefly explained to have been bought by Rhys’s father
for his mother. Apparently she had never really wanted it, so it had turned
into a hangout of sorts for the three Illyrian males.
We hadn’t done much
talking after that.
“I need to go see my
sisters.” I said.
He nodded hesitantly. “I
I lifted a hand and
brushed his hair away from his face. “In a few hours.” I added.
I laid Feyre down on the
bed as soon as I reached our room. She hung limp in my arms.
I snapped my fingers and
the dirt on her skin disappeared, her clothes replaced by the softest pajamas
she owned. I braided her hair back from her face and tucked her into the white
sheets before turning towards the bathroom to clean myself. I would have used
magic, but I was already so tired and…
I was out cold, slumped
on the other side of the bed before I could finish thinking.
When I woke up, Mor was
flipping through the pages of a book whose title made me want to blush. I groaned and sat up, running a hand through my
“How long was I-”
“Ten hours.” Mor said.
“Amren and I had to switch places a few times. I would have asked Cass but he
and Nesta are quite busy, or at least
that’s what I can tell by the note she left. Another Archeron sister finds her
mate.” She licked her finger and turned the page of her book. “You know, I’ve
noticed a pattern. Nesta’s always one extreme, Elain the other, and Feyre somewhere
in the middle. Elain’s sweet, Nesta’s mean, Feyre a bit of both. Elain
recognized her mate immediately, it took Feyre months after she met you, but three hundred years is way off the
spectrum, even for Archeron extremes.”
It took a second for me
to comprehend. “Nesta and Cassian are mates?”
Mor nodded, still reading
her book. I grinned madly.
She looked up. “What?”
“This time I get to beat the crap out of him.” I said. She rolled her eyes.
I looked over to Feyre,
still sleeping soundly. “Did she-”
“No.” Mor replied.
“Hasn’t woken once.”
I rubbed my eyes. “I’m
going to rip out the throats of whoever did that to her.”
Mor nodded. “You’ll have
to beat me to it.”
I looked up, surprised
that Mor knew. Amren was usually pretty secretive.
“She told me alone.” Mor
leaned back in her chair, uncrossing her legs. “And only so I’d understand why
you probably wouldn’t let anyone else in here. But you needed someone to make
sure you got some rest too. For some reason, the Tiny Ancient One thought I was
the best person for the job. Especially considering that I’m the only one
beside Lucien who isn’t batting their eyelashes at someone else and you
probably didn’t want him in here.”
She paused. “I suppose
I’m wrong. Wherever they are, Cass and Nesta certainly aren’t batting their
eyelashes at each other. Though I don’t want to know what they are doing.”
“Wait… what… Lucien? Then
Elain… and what about Az? And I didn’t think things were that serious between
Amren and Varian.”
Mor rolled her eyes.
“I’ll explain later.” She shut the book and stood. “For now, get cleaned up.
I had started to forget
things. I forgot where I was, how I’d gotten there. I sometimes even forgot who
But I never forgot him.
Azriel stood by me every
day, making funny shapes out of his shadows, telling jokes, bringing more
flowers. At night, he slept in the chair beside my bed, his wings halfway
curled around him, his head tucked in the crook of his arm.
And in between strange
dreams, I thought that it might not be the worst place to die.

Charming idea. But if Mary had ever bothered to talk to her sons and find out all they’ve been through, she’d know that even in a world with no monsters Sam and Dean wouldn’t be able to live normal lives.
