I frowned at him. "I know how to use it. I stick the pointy end in things I don't like.”

“His shoulders sagged as he stepped back. Then a half smile made the edge of his lips crook. " You're mad at me."
"And that's amusing because?"
The half smile spread into a lopsideed grin, and he stood up straighter. "You wouldn't be mad if you didn't care. I'm onto you, Alexis."

Amy Armstrong Hi Kalayna, thanks so much for accepting my friend request. Hope you're having a fab day!


Maria Renee Thanks for the friendship...just finished Alex Craft#2 over the weekend. Had to sleep late just to finish it, and I also sneaked in a few pages at work. Please don't tell my boss, lol. Waiting for Grave Memory & Third Blood so I can continue with the series. Again, thanks for accepting my request.
