With stone contempt and considered aim he looked me in the eyes andpulled the
trigger. Inthe air between us a wan flash of lightning appeared, crackling from
above his left shoulder to theground. As the bullet'sforce threw me backward,I
swear Icould feel its churning spin: the crude gougeof a screwdriver, with the
forceofa train. Searing painin my abdomenand spine was instantaneous and
absolute. I cried outto my friends aline thatinmovies always made me cringe. “I'm
killed.

“I suspect the bullet was meant for me all along,” he said. “The Raziq would have
felt my presence the first time I rescued you. They'd know I'd do so again should
you be captured a second time. By shooting me with silver, they are giving
themselves extra time to find us.” “Then let me shift the two of us so we can get
the hell out of here.” The only problem was, I'd only ever shifted to Aedh form with
another person in my arms once, and only then because we'd had no other
option.

“My three sisters and my father.” “What about your mother?” The perfect nose
wrinkled. “I love my mother, but I wouldn't step in front of her to take the bullet
aimed at her.” “Why is that, Kitty?” The large eyes widened even more, giving
them a look of wary and startled surprise. Then she laughed, a peal of
amusement so infectious that those around them who heard it involuntarily
smiled. “Idiot! Because she wouldn't take the bullet meant for me. It's a two-way
street, Charlie.” He winced.

swiftly took cover behind some trees. Right then a friend of mine, Élie, who had
apparently also taken to the bush some distance ahead of me, took o› running—

dead, taking the bullet meant for me, and soon the armed men left, maybe
nervous about being so far from their comrades. I remained on the ground,

She knew he was dismissing any goodness on his part. Dismissing any heroism.
Dismissing anything that would admit even the smallest measure of human
vulnerability inside that tough exterior. But halfway through the gesture, his face
contorted with pain. She squeezed his hand, pushed a lock of hair from his
forehead. “Don't you dare dismiss my life, Dev,” she said vehemently. “You took
the bullet meant for me. Do you know where it hit me once it went through you?”
She pointed.

And then he was there to shield me, taking that bullet meant for me.” You're safe
now. I have you. “He was the most exciting thing I'd ever seen, all covered in
blood and full of bullet holes. And I remember wondering how something so
deadly could have hands so gentle.” Her voice faded into a sigh. “I've been in
love with him ever since that moment.” “Tell him, Suze. Life's too damned short
and lonely to keep those kinds of secrets.” “When this is done. I'll tell him then.”
Once that.

The bullet meant for me got him instead.” Ana Bolanos remembers events
differently. She says she thought that bringing her youngest son to live with her
mother would keep Edgar in school and safe from the life in and out of U.S.
prisons that her eldest son Hugo seemed destined to live. But shortly after she
brought Edgar to El Salvador, Hugo was deported. Within a few months, José,
her son who remained in L.A., was murdered in a drive-by shooting. “They killed
my son because he ...

Helen Rosemont hugged me and told me how after her son had been lost in the
war Delia had stopped in every day on her way to work to bring her the
newspaper. Peter Arnot had said she'd given him a lecture when she caught him
lounging on Wickenden Street, telling him ... We didn't discuss it any more than
we discussed how she'd died, how she'd taken the bullet meant for me. I didn't
know if Nate had tricked us, if he'd wanted one last revenge. We didn't know if it
had just been.

Repulsed I jerk to the left and immediately see the effects of a bullet rip the side of
an oak tree just ahead of me, bits of its bark spraying me, as I run past this same
tree. A bullet meant for me. I feel my legs straining, can see my knees pumping
wildly in and out of my peripheral sight, as I continue deeper into the darkness.
Two more shots and this rain of gunfire is over. The guard's twenty rounds in his
magazine are all used, and I cannot tell if any of the other tower guards have fired
