“I don’t know if I can trust you, you were here to spy on her,” Chevalier
said, looking at David suspiciously.
“Then double guard her… that would have solved the problem anyway.”
He smiled at Emily and she scowled back at him.
“How so?” Chevalier asked.
“Oooh, I can’t give away her secrets.” He winked at Emily.
Emily rolled her eyes, “I don’t need a guard.”
“Yes, you do,” both Chevalier and David said together.
“My God,” Emily said, irritated.
“I can swear allegiance to the Equites, but I can’t make up for what I did
as an Encala” David said.
“You’d turn so quickly?” Chevalier’s eyes narrowed.
“Wouldn’t you, if she were on the other side?”
Chevalier tensed, “She’s mine.”
“Oh, I’m well aware of that. Wouldn’t you like to have someone
watching over her that’s not afraid of you? Maybe she needs protected
from you too,” David said.
“Those are brave words.” Chevalier was getting mad.
“Think about it, I’ll be around,” he said before taking Emily’s hand and
kissing it. “Stay safe, Kid.”
