    “God," she said, her tone gently reproving, "brought Mr.Kensington to you, and with him, a world of potential. As I see it, each of our lives is a journey, Miss Cora.

    “How dare you - "
    "How dare I offer you more than you could've ever dreamed?"
    "How dare you waltz in here and presume - "
    "Presume to prescribe a future with hope and promise?"
    I shut my mouth abruptly, glaring at him. Then, "Are you quite finished?"
    "Are you?" he asked.
    "I am a free woman, Mr.Kensington. Grown. I can do as I wish.I may be blood kin to you, but I am not your employee." My eyes cut to Mama, but hers remained on the barn.
    "Regardless, you shall do as I say."
    I let out a sputtering, exasperated laugh. "And if I do not?"
    He traced the edge of his chipped china saucer. "That would be ill advised.”

    “Her attention was on the first knight, pulling back his bowstring, taking aim. She paused, sensed the wind and revised her aim, then let the arrow fly.

    I watched, as if in slow motion, as it shot across the space and split through the first knight's throat.

    But Lia was not done. She was already on one knee, squinting and taking aim at the second as he turned, spotting us. She let the next arrow fly, and the arrow struck him in the chest, driving him backward over the parapet wall.

    "Saints in heaven, I believe I'm in love," Luca growled, running past me, sword drawn.”

    “Yeah.”
    “When?”
    “Right away.”

    “Vhat ozzer abilities do you haf?" ter Borcht snapped, which his assistant waited, pen in hand.
    Gazzy thought. "I have X-ray vision," he said. He peered at ter Borcht's chest, then blinked and looked alarmed.
    Ter Borcht was startled for a second, but then he frowned. "Don't write dat down," he told his assistant in irritation. The assistant froze in midsentence.
    "You. Do you haf any qualities dat distinguish you in any way?"
    Nudge chewed on a fingernail. "You mean, like, besides the WINGS?" She shook her shoulders gently, and her beautiful fawn-colored wings unfolded a bit.
    His face flushed, and I felt like cheering. "Yes," he said stiffly. "Besides de vings."
    "Hmm. Besides de vings." Nudge tapped one finger against her chin. "Um..." Her face brightened. "I once ate nine Snickers bars in one sitting. Without barfing. That was a record!"
    "Hardly a special talent," ter Borcht said witheringly.
    Nudge was offended. "Yeah? Let's see YOU do it."
    ...
    "I vill now eat nine Snickers bars," Gazzy said in a perfect, creepy imitation of ter Borcht's voice, "visout bahfing."
    Iggy rubbed his forehead with one hand. "Well, I have a highly developed sense of irony."
    Ter Borcht tsked. "You are a liability to your group. I assume you alvays hold on to someone's shirt, yes? Following dem closely?"
    "Only when I'm trying to steal their dessert"
    ...Fang pretended to think, gazing up at the ceiling. "Besides my fashion sense? I play a mean harmonica."
    "I vill now destroy de Snickuhs bahrs!" Gazzy barked.”

    “They turned to Angel. "We will call you Little One," the leader said, obviously deciding to dispense with the whole confusing name thing.
    "Okay," said Angel agreeably. "I'll call you Guy in a White Lab Coat." He frowned.
