Perry followed her scent, moving swiftly through the night. He kept his stride even as he scanned the darkened woods, though his heart hammered in his chest. Roar had told him she was back on the outside, had even delivered a violet with a message as proof, but Perry wouldn’t believe it until he saw her. He reached a rise of boulders and dropped his bow, quiver, and satchel. With the scar across his face and his challenging stare, Reef looked like someone to avoid. Then he jumped up, leaping from rock to rock until he stood at the top. You think the Tides want to lose another Blood Lord? “I’ve been out here a hundred times on my own.” Reef nodded. As a hunter.” He took a water skin from his leather satchel, his movements casual and slow though he was still out of breath. “I didn’t come out here to see you for a night, Aria. It’s not safe out here, and—” “I don’t need help, Perry.” “That’s not what I meant.” He was too skitty to order his thoughts. Reef’s steps caught when he saw Aria alert and armed. The sky was coated with a thick layer of clouds that glowed softly with Aether light. “You’re more than that now.” Perry stared into the woods. Perry relished the burn in his legs and the crisp air flowing through his lungs. He couldn’t see the currents of Aether, but he knew they were there, flowing above the clouds. Morning.” “I understand.” She looked from him to the chain, her expression growing distant. Before he could say anything more, she took another step away, her hands hovering over the blades at her belt. He scanned the rolling hills, his gaze stopping at a barren stretch of land. Sweat glistened on his deep brown skin, running along the scar that reached from the base of his nose to above his ear, dividing his cheek, and he was breathing heavily. Now Reef was the head of his guard, seldom leaving his side. Maybe less.” Reef drew a sleeve across his face, pushing his braids away and wiping off sweat. He picked up his things, shouldering them with an impatient tug. Twig and Gren were out there, listening and watching for danger. Winter was a time for holding in place as the Aether storms wreaked havoc, and he hadn’t been in the open like this for too long—not since he’d taken Aria to the Dweller Pod in search of her mother. of when you bandaged it.” He lowered his head, bringing his cheek next to hers. Each winter, the Aether storms were growing stronger, bringing fire and ruin. His tribe’s survival depended on finding a land rumored to be free of the Aether—the same thing Aria was searching for. Seconds later, Reef emerged from the woods, square shoulders hunched as he walked toward them. Scorched, silver in color, it was a scar left by the winter’s storms. Perry climbed down, landing with a soggy crunch on a patch of melting snow. Usually he kept up without any effort, but two days at a driving pace had brought out the decade between them. He knew exactly what Perry felt right now, moments away from seeing Aria. They’d been protecting him since he left his territory. Here in the borderlands, survival was the only rule. Perry let out a slow breath, his hope of spending a night alone with Aria vanishing. ” Perry shook his head at the formal address—Reef’s way of reminding him of his responsibility. “Your lord will take one hour alone,” he said, and jogged away. You need to—” “One hour,” Perry called over his shoulder. When he was sure he’d left Reef behind, Perry firmed his grip on his bow and broke into a run. He’d been telling himself she was back where she belonged, with her people, and he had his own tribe to take care of. Perry wanted to slow down and savor everything, but he couldn’t find a scrap of patience. She studied his face like she wanted to know everything about him. During their time together, he’d told her things he’d never said to anyone. “That was the first time you touched me without hating it.” This close, her scent was everywhere, running through him, somehow stirring and mellowing him at the same time. “He told me you’re looking for the Still Blue.” “You saw Bliss.” He nodded. Much of his territory, two days to the west, looked the same. “You said she could help us find the Still Blue.” “She will help,” Perry said. She needs to find it, just as we do.” Reef strode up, coming to within a foot of Perry, and narrowed his eyes. Reef stoppered the cork on his water skin with a firm thump. Scents flashed past as he threaded through the trees. Then, just days ago, Roar had showed up at the compound with Cinder and told him she was here on the outside. “I wasn’t sure if you’d come.” “I left as soon as—” Before he could finish, her arms closed around his neck and they were kissing—a clumsy, hasty kiss. He wasn’t sure if he started laughing first or if she did. Aria’s smile faded as her gaze stopped at the chain around his neck. “Later.” She turned his hand to see the scars Cinder had given him. They had gone to the Pod together in search of her mother and found it destroyed by Aether. Walls ten feet thick had been crushed like eggshells. To Sable.” Perry’s pulse quickened at the mention of the name. “The Horns’ city is still locked in by ice,” he said. “He’s one of my men.” No way had it already been an hour. “There are more nearby.” Perry caught the steep dive in her temper, a bracing, cool drift. He hadn’t felt tethered to another’s emotions in months. Perry tensed as he spotted the tail of a campfire in the distance. “You did tell me that.” He tipped his head and inhaled, the gesture bold and animal. “But that’s not why we’ve come after her,” he said. From that moment he could only think of being with her again. “I can do much better than that,” he said, just as she said, “You’re taller. “I heard what happened.” She reached up, and the weight at his collarbone lifted. Pale and thick as trails of wax, they made a web from his knuckles to his wrist. “It’s only a matter of time before that happens to Reverie,” she continued. His sister, Liv, should have married the Horns’ Blood Lord last spring, but she’d spooked and run away. “Rim won’t be reachable until the pass to the north thaws. Now he watched as her attention shifted naturally to the noises of the night. He inhaled and caught the smoky scent on a cool gust. Perry couldn’t read his own tempers, but he could imagine the scents Reef had taken in. Perry tore down a slope soft with new grass and recent rain, panning the woods. He said a dozen things he hadn’t meant to say, until she drew back and smiled up at him. He took in the arch of her slender eyebrows, black like her hair, and the cleverness in her gray eyes. “You’re a Blood Lord now.” She spoke softly, more to herself than to him. It’s stunning.” He peered down, watching her fingers run over the silver links. This was the best moment he’d had since he’d taken the chain months ago. “I’m sorry about Vale.” Perry looked across the shadowed woods and swallowed through the sudden tightness in his throat. Could be a few weeks before then.” “I know,” she said. I’ll go north as soon as it does.” She stepped away from him abruptly and scanned the woods, her head angling quick and sharp. It was darker beneath the trees, the Aether light filtering softly through the canopy, but every branch and leaf stood in sharp contrast, thanks to his Night-Sighted eyes. The memory of his brother’s death kept him awake nights. Had wanted to comfort her since he’d heard the news from Roar. With each step, the scent of Aria’s campfire grew stronger. When she saw him, her eyes widened in surprise, but her stride didn’t slow and neither did his. Sometimes, when he was alone, it kept him from breathing. In a flash he remembered her game of sneaking up, silent as a shadow, and planting a kiss on his cheek. He shed his things, dropping them where they fell, and sprinted. Gently he took Aria’s hand from the chain and slipped his fingers through hers. He couldn’t keep the smile from coming to his lips. Next thing he knew, she slammed into his chest, solid and fragrant in his arms. Up ahead he spotted movement—a blur through the trees. Perry followed her scent, moving swiftly through the night.
