CAGED Little Bird
"I'm not your prince, little bird."
I ran my fingertips up the right side of his throat, following the swirl of wyrmfire ink to cup his cheek. His thick black eyelashes lowered as he arched into my touch. "I never wanted a prince," I told him. It was true. I had never wanted a prince and I knew better than anyone else what he was to me. "You're my villain."
"That's right." His threat was softened by the gentle sweep of his lips as he turned his mouth into my palm. "I'm going to steal you from everyone you love."
I was a princess of the underworld. And he was a thief, a death-dealer, a spinner of deceit.
He had hunted me, captured me, and locked me in a tower.
I swore I would find freedom, even if it meant tearing through him, leaving him broken and bleeding at my feet. For I was a Wychthorn and I would bow to no one.
On my twentieth birthday when he and I were bound to one another with iron-teeth, and with the Witches Ball looming, I was given a choice - I could save his life.
Or I could end it.
