“You are not afraid?” He asked curious, turning to the side, she had pulled a curtain across the partition, rightfully assuming that a glamour would never work on an Angel of his age.
“Should I be?” She whispered.
“Yes,” Seth said and he heard her heart rate jump.
“You know I will never give them up even if I knew where they were.” She said her voice impressively steady despite the rapid beat of her heart. “Your trip here was wasted.”
“O,” Seth said softly, “it was not, Guardian Angel Zachary and his Rubarian consort Ka’ya are inconsequential, you are who I came for half-breed.”
Seth felt the flurry of her thoughts against his mind, but they still remained indecipherable.
There were a few moments of silence, where Seth tried to read her thoughts again and the confessionary took deep even breaths.
“I will go willingly; you don’t have to harm my friends.” She said firmly.
Surprised at her easy compliance Seth stood up and walked out of the booth.
When she turned to face him, Seth took a step back; she gave him a perplexed look and glanced down where he was gripping his sword. He let the blade go as he quickly recovered his composure.
“Your name?” He said unbelieving of what he was seeing.
“Shosana.” The half-breed stuttered.
‘Cassandra get in here,’ Seth thought quickly.
He felt Cassandra’s confusion but she obeyed his command. Cassandra ran in, poised for battle and skipped to a stop in front of Shosana. When he saw the look of absolute shock on Cassandra’s face when she glanced at the half-breed, he knew he could not allow the others to see her.
‘Higher Angel, is she? She looks like –’
‘Stop, guard your thoughts, her mind is exceptionally strong.’
Cassandra nodded slowly as she stared at Shosana with open fear.
Seth placed his hand on Shosana’s shoulder; she began to fall unconscious to the floor before he caught her.
“Seth,” Cassandra said still staring at Shosana, “Higher Angel is she?”
“Yes,” Seth said.
‘She’s the offspring of one of the nine original Archangels.’
