As soon as Tess left the room, I picked up the jar of ointment and took a good sized dollop with my fingers. I warmed it in my hands for a moment before applying it to Evie’s silky skin with the gentlest of touches. I tried to keep my face calm—I mean, rubbing up on my girlfriend’s half-naked body wasn’t exactly an arduous task, but there was something bothering me, something I couldn’t quite put into words just yet, mostly because I didn’t want to sound like a huge pussy. I’d all but decided to keep my mouth shut when my eyes met hers, and suddenly it felt like I didn’t have to tell her; she already knew. The words came out anyway.
“I have a bad feeling about this mission,” I said quietly. “I can’t explain how or why it feels any worse than any other assignment, but it just does. I wasn’t freaked out this much when we went in after Mzetir, and even you have to admit that was seriously hairy. And before you say anything, it has nothing to do with you going into this assignment alone either. We’ve been there and done that before, and while it sucked ass, I didn’t feel like this. Even after I saw what that rat bastard Chilgaz did to you, it wasn’t this bad. There’s something in my gut that I can’t shake, Ev, no matter how hard I try to rationalize or ignore it, and it scares the shit out of me.”
Whew. There, I’d said it. All my pussy chips were out on the table.
“I know,” she whispered, pulling my face down to hers.
She kissed me, ferocious and hard. The passion behind this kiss didn’t have the usual sexual undertones that laced an after-assignment lip-lock, however. I answered back, wordlessly pleading with the same desperate intensity she was giving me. It wasn’t going to be enough, I knew that—she probably did too—but it had to help. Something had to help unravel the feelings of despair knotting my gut.
