I stayed in Vegas long enough to give birth to her. Griffin and Axis disappeared not long after Halloween – with Kellen gone, everything was wrong. Broken. And they couldn’t stay.
I stayed in our little apartment, rent comped by Martin. Neighbors cooked for me – Doodle, Petra, a few others. I just couldn’t do it. Felt like a ghost without him. Felt like they’d taken most of me when they took him.
Gods. Spirits. Demons.
I’ve signed Kaylin over to Doodle. He’ll make a good dad, I think, the way he took care of me.
I’m going back to the desert. I have to try. I have to see them – see him – one more time.
