“Well, then. I guess there’s no way to know what would have happened if he hadn’t been trapped there.” Shevron scooted closer to me. “Fury, keep an eye on him. I don’t trust this sudden desire of his to go with you. He’s barely wanted to leave his home or shop for the past eight years. Something’s happening and I’m not sure what.”
I placed my hand on her shoulder. “I will. I promise.” Then, seeing Tam motioning to me, I added, “I have to go now. But Shevron, remember that Jason is a grown man. He makes his own choices. I could forbid him from coming but…I think maybe he’s trying to step outside the cocoon he’s made for himself.”
“I get it,” she said, then waved me on.
I headed over to the Thor and Hecate, who were standing with Tam.
A steady, persistent drizzle misted down on us, and the ground was wet but not yet muddy. I shivered, my legs catching a draft that passed by. I hadn’t put on my cloak yet, mostly because I knew that once we were inside Thor’s chariot, I was planning on just leaning back, draping it over me like a blanket, and snoozing.
“So, Thor tells me that he’s outfitted his chariot with a little more comfortable surroundings,” Tam said, sliding an arm around my shoulder. Damh Varias gave him a dark look, but Tam ignored him. Even this was too much of a display, according to the Bonny Fae traditions, but given I was headed out on a dangerous mission, I ignored Damh Varias’s look as well.
“Really?” I turned to the thunder god.
