The young Godseeker assassin returned and slid onto a stool at the bar. He had all the arrogance associated with youth and his chosen profession. Blade remembered the days when he’d had the same.
He looked up from searching under the counter for an unopened bottle of rye and met the boy’s eyes.
“I know who you are,” the boy said.
Another glass shattered on the floor. Blade’s hand hung in the air for a split second, then he grabbed a bottle by its neck and set it on the bar’s counter.
“Who I am is a fool.” He leaned on the bar and gave the boy his most chilling stare. “I thought I could change the world. I thought I could cross the desert alone because I was good with a knife. Demons don’t care about knives. They care even less about mortal men. Would you like me to tell you how it feels to be eaten alive?” He straightened and nodded to the other Godseekers. “Then you can share the information with your friends, who are so intent on going to war against them.”
“Perhaps you could also tell me how it feels to be a coward,” the boy replied with ill-concealed disappointment.
Not that long ago, Blade would have killed anyone who dared speak to him in such a manner. Now, he accepted that the boy was right. Self-awareness took much of the insult from the words. “It feels like being alive.”
