Thirty-seven – 02

[This post is from Marin’s point of view.]

“Mar.” Matt’s voice was gentle as his hand closed around my shoulder. When had he moved? I wasn’t sure. I shook my head, trying to forestall whatever he was about to say. I didn’t want to hear it—I couldn’t hear it, not now.

Focus, Marin. Focus. Just focus.

“We’ll be with you,” Hecate said quietly from behind us. “No matter what.”

I flinched. Matt’s fingers tightened.

I don’t want you guys hurt. I don’t want you guys in danger. I can’t—

Was this what Phelan had felt like? What that why he’d tried to leave months ago?

It might have been.

My heart sank.

“I’m sorry,” I said in a whisper, jaw tightening. “I’m not where I should be right now. I’m just—I’m not.”

Clutching my coffee cup, I started walking without knowing where I was going. It didn’t matter anyway. I wasn’t going to go that far.

There was nowhere to go, not now.

Not today.
