Beautiful artwork of Morrigan and Alistair done by @donc-desole. I found it through pinterest, of all places. So nice to be able to track down the artist. :)
Alistair felt nervous when he saw the black Chrysler pull up outside—he had never been on a stakeout before. He squared his jaw and took a deep breath to steady himself before approaching the passenger’s side door. Cullen’s eyes were covered by the brim of his hat, but the scar on his upper lip was pulled up into a tense sneer.
“Get in,” he said.
Alistair looked surreptitiously down the alley both ways before swinging the door open. “Where to?” he asked, as he slid into the black leather bench seat.
“Other side of town,” answered Cullen darkly.
Alistair stared out the window and let his eyes lose focus. He felt Cullen’s presence heavily beside him. The street lamps strobed between the buildings as they accelerated. Cullen drove a stick shift expertly, Alistair noted. He was always forgetting where fifth was. Up and to the right?
