That's the rumor mill for you
Tue Nov 9, 2010 12:04am

Grace hadn't said it outright but it was still clear to Jered what the man was meaning. Dan Stoddard's death. But it was coming even clearer that he and Grace had different view points on the matter. As far as Jered was concerned, Dan was no threat now. He hadn't come near Lockstone in months let alone made any far distance attacks on Sarah. And Jered knew what the man's movements were. He had an eye and ear open around the bastard and would know the moment the git showed up anywhere near Sarah.

But Jered could relate to what Grace was saying. His features and eyes became blank with those words, no emotion showing through at all. He stared at Grace for a second like this before turning on his heel again in one easy movement, turning away all but the side of his face from Grace.

'Dan's not that kind of man. He hasn't got it in him,' Jered said simply, adding a sigh at the end. 'We'll have to agree to disagree on this but I know he's finished. Personally, I think what happened to him is better than death. But if you don't... do what you want.

'But don't do it in Sarah's name. She wouldn't want that. She wouldn't want his blood on someone she cares for hands. And for some reason, she cares for you. God knows why but she does,' the irritancy in his voice returned with the last few sentences. Jered really didn't get why Sarah believed in Grace so much, trusted him. Maybe that was Dan's fault too.

          It only took a second to dismiss the thought that popped into Jered's head with Grace's words. Sure, Jered had thought about that before but then only for mere moments. It was a ridiculous idea, the... more

            Devon was surprised the moment Jered laughed. He was used to Quidditch-hero men desperate to be someone's knight in shining armor; either those, or ones he could respect and befriend. Though Rand was ... more

              Jered's grin slipped into a smile. Grace couldn't have still be insinuating that Sarah... no, he was just trying to make it clear that he could... so Jered believed. But no, Sarah would never cross... more

                I moved us to the Gashleycrumb Gardens. So it actually looks like we're supervising. Haha.
