Knowing I wasn’t going anywhere, I frantically searched for some way to help her. A dark figure caught my eye. “Christian!” I yelled. He’d been staring at Lissa’s retreating figure but glanced up at the sound of his name. One of my escorts shushed me and took my arm. “Be quiet.” I ignored her. “Go after her,” I called to Christian. “Hurry.” He just sat there, and I suppressed a groan. “Go, you idiot!” My guardians snapped at me to be quiet again, but something inside of Christian woke up. Springing up from his lounging position, he tore off in the direction Lissa had traveled.
