“What cha got for me?” the man said. He didn't want to be seen I could tell. Most didn't care.
“We're kinda low since the raid last month. Our numbers are barely enough to support the staff. I can't spare a single kid.” My teeth clenched, I squeezed my eyes shut. No, no,no. I can't live in this place anymore. Just let me go with him and die.
“I'll pay the maximum price. I don't care if she's scrawny one or not.”
“Damon, I can't give you one. If you want a kid go to another orphanage, this one has none to spare.”
A growl erupted from the Damon guy. “We can do this the easy way of the hard way Ineas. I can't go to the other orphanages. They're vervained up.”
Shh, “Capture one and wait it out. Vervain leaves the human system in three days maximum.” I took a step forward eager to take a look at Damon. When I did my eyebrows jumped up, and my stomach did a somersault. I crouched there, peeking over the banister unhidden. The master Ineas's back was to me, Damon faced me. Slowly ever so slightly he looked up and met my gaze. I swallowed, and looked away. What do I do, what do I do? Think Anti, think.
