Taylor smiled,"Nope I've never seen him before, but he sounds hilarious. Ha ha, for a second there I thought you were actually saying that and not just joking." She laughed softly. How could she be stupid enough to think that anyone would actually say that about her?
Kristen wiped her eyes,"No. I was desperate for ideas. He was going to kill everyone. For some reason I just had to pretend be brave. Orson...he's so much stronger than me; emotionally and physically. I feel like I have to prove myself to him or something. Ever since we came here and he's been with other shifters, I feel like I've been a third wheel to him. I've felt like I need to prove myself to him or something. That I can be as good as a shifter. Stupid right?" She made a noise somewhere in between a laugh and a sob.
Enoch whispered when they got a distance away, "I hope you're ready. She's painted a target on you. But she did enjoy doing it. It's almost like she's challenging you."
The four other generals walked over to join Tutus. They then watched the two walk away, before returning to their morning workout.
Nashton stoped abruptly. "Taylor, I was saying that about you. That was never apart of the guys act. I mimicked only the voice. Because I liked how he said things. How can someone that is so drop dead gorgeous, not know that she's breath taking? I look at you sometimes and wonder, what I did so right to deserve you. So, before you think I'm quoting some obscure move, know that I speak only from my heart. I love you my little hottie, hotness. " He finished with a cheesy grin.
Kyth shook his head. "There was no pretend. You ran in, while the rest of us ran out. That is brave. I heard a quote once, now I can't remember it exactly. But I'll get as close as I can. 'Bravery isn't the complete absence of fear. It's feeling fear and doing it anyway, despite it.' I think you are being rather hard on yourself, Kristen. Those men would have and tried to kill you. I was a captive there, I knew well their brutality. They weren't the handlers you killed, but the war hardened soldiers. The death mongers, the tortures and the executioners." He said softly, with barely suppressed emotions
