Kel and Casey from Chapter 12:
“Hey, it’s okay. I’m here, aren’t I?”
“Barely.” He kissed the top of her head. “Jesus—Case, you just told me the worst thing I could’ve ever imagined. You were lucky they didn’t listen.”
“But they did listen. They actually asked me questions about what had happened.”
“And you gave them details?” He put her at arm’s length and examined her face.
“Yeah . . . I, well, I . . .”
“I can’t believe they let you keep breathing!” He wrapped her up in a stifling hug, but it was fine.
Everything was fine.
