Summary: “You’re doing important work. I hope you get him.”

He unlocked his front door with thoughts awhirl. The latest victim’s sister had found a store receipt that…

Natalie sat in a chair, waiting, with two bags packed. Blinking, he blurted, “What’s this about?”

She rose deliberately, eyes iced with respect. “John.” A euphemistic slur. “You’re doing important work. I hope you get him. I just can’t be here anymore.”

He raised his hands, placating, pricked with irritation as his deliberations scattered. “Honey, wait. Let’s talk―”

Now you want to talk?” Bitterness, veiled as she gathered her bags. “Let’s be real.”

“You hate him more than you ever loved me.”

Summary: Even dragons sleep sometimes.
Author's Notes: Not that this tends to help; they always wake up.

He took the news well. But that was also part of the role of the divine emperor; betray no shock, no fear, and only just wrath.

So being informed by a messenger that the enemy clearly hadn't expected to survive the delivery of his message that the Hierai had been taken captive while he slept was not, in fact, greeted with any overt sign of fear or anger.

He did, however, give the messenger his undivided attention, which was its own sign of crisis. "You have taken the Exile...and believe you can hold him?"

"Long enough," the messenger agreed carefully.
