He quickly waved his hands. ” I let out a deep breath and sat back down, eyeing them warily. I wasn’t ready to relax just yet. The ‘nothing like that’ left a lot of ground uncovered. For instance, they could tell me I had been adopted or something. ” I asked. I shouldn’t have. As soon as the words left my mouth, I knew it’d been a mistake. It was one of those questions you had no choice but ask, and then found yourself regretting because you really, really didn’t want the answer once you had it.

The Evol was moving in on its intended victim, and for a second, I wasn’t all that sure I wanted to do anything to stop it.
