Onyx shook her head, her long black hair sliding over her shoulders. "He should be back some time today." Her gaze wandered down the road. As her eyes narrowed, Ivan stood up. The tension in her body ratcheted up a few notches, putting him on high alert. He knew she'd been shot at on this very porch so her behavior didn't surprise him. Without disturbing her, he edged in front of her, placing himself between her and the oncoming car. One hand on his shoulder, pressing down so she could stand up on tip toes to see around him made him laugh. He should have known. Onyx was no coward. Not at all the type of female to hide behind any man. One more attractive quality to add to the very long list.
He felt rather than saw the tension drain from her body as she recognized Cole's car. She rushed around him to meet her boyfriend in the driveway. They embraced like they'd been apart for two years instead of two days. Ivan looked down at his boots, but not before he caught the small twitch of displeasure that curled Onyx's nose. As soon, as Cole joined him on the porch and shook his hand, he understood her reaction. Her boyfriend absolutely reeked of another woman's scent. As a non-shifter, he doubted Cole was even aware of it. But shifters had excellent olfactory perception.
"So what did you learn, Cole?" Ivan wanted to get to it. The longer Molly stayed missing the harder it would be to find her.
Cole ran his fingers through his hair. "The good news is, I've got a good grasp of a more advanced locater spell I can do. The bad news is, I need the full moon to do it."
"Fuck man, that's not for like three more days." Ivan looked around for something he could slam his fist into.
Cole nodded, "I know. I have some other ones Isobel taught me that might be able to help us at least narrow down the general location. I'm going to need something of hers though, Nyx."
A deep frown had come over her face at the mention of the witch's name, but she nodded. "No one has touched her room since she disappeared." She took a step closer to Cole, then retreated. "Excuse me guys, I'll go upstairs and grab something of hers. Be right back." Onyx hurried into the house looking like she might burst into tears.
Cole watched her walk away a bewildered look crossing...
