Book 1, Chapter 49

Rachel straightened. Ean was uncomfortably aware that stepping into the hallway had also put him very much inside her personal space – but really, wasn’t it better to be rudely close to someone than letting them get too close to a rampaging demonic refrigerator?

Ean cleared his throat. “So,” he said, “Again: what brings you here?”

Rachel flushed and fidgeted uncomfortably. “Um,” she said, “I heard you got fired after everything this morning. And I feel like it’s my fault. So… I was wondering if I could take you out to lunch. To apologize?” She blushed harder. “And so you know I don’t think you’re some kind of pervert, and I didn’t complain about you to HR. So… may I?”

Ean blinked at Rachel. In the apartment behind him, a demon was tearing into his pet chihuahua. When it was done, it would probably go after his best friend – and then him. There was a grudge there, after all.

“You know,” Ean said brightly, “I have been thinking it would be nice to get out of the apartment for a while.”
