“You say the nastiest things when you’re angry, so yes, I’m walking away from you now.”
“Then do it already,” Astra coaxed. “I’m waiting.” She leaned against the door frame. Maybe using the word “entrapped” wasn’t the best. Audric hadn’t entrapped her. Everything that happened was because she consciously made the decision to let it happen. Just like why she was here in front of the lilac haired elf instead of with Dionysus, wherever he was. Or, why she hadn’t just left to stay with one of her sisters when Audric came clean about his past. Something about the man allured her, and the thought of being away from his light made her nervous with anxiety. She couldn’t do it. She loved him, no matter how dysfunctional this relationship had gotten.
“On second thought, I don’t think I actually will, my princess. You’d like very much for me to walk out of this door and never return.”
“If that’s what you’d like to do, then go ahead. Do it.” She shrugged. “I wouldn’t care one way or the other. You’ve seen it happen already. My father left, and yet I’m still here in one piece.”
She didn’t even jump as Audric slammed his palm on the door-frame behind her head, effectively pinning her against the door. “You’ve got a smart mouth.”
“Are you going to clean it?” She taunted.
He leaned in closer to her. “You’d like that wouldn’t you?” She could feel his breath on her lips, teasing her, as she was teasing him.
She ducked down from under his arm and walked behind him. Smirking, she said, “Dimension Watcher rules prohibit what I want you to do to me. So, cool off my handsome prince.”
