"Come on, Nessa, I promise its safe." Will turned his dazzling blue eyes on her as if he knew the influence those eyes could have and she glared in return.
"What part of 'HELL NO' don't you understand?" she grouched, slumping farther into the chair that she sat in. The wall at her back smelled unbearably sweet, and when she wasn't allowing Will to irritate her, she was wondering what kind of magic was being used and the reasons behind that fact.
"But you were delirious last time," he objected as he paced across the floor in his bare feet, pointing accusatorily at her. "That hardly counts." He looked good this morning. The sun shone through the large windows and lit the golden hair on his head and arms, one bandaged from the escapade the night before. A clean white shirt clung to him in all the right spots and though he was bulky by no means, Nessa could see the definition of muscle with every move he made.
She hated that she saw these small, flawless inflections of him, that she was bl

"Wow. This place is a dump."
"Your face is a dump."
"That was completely uncalled for. What did I ever do to you? Save you from impending insanity? Showed you a way to see your family? Took you to this dump to follow through on an absurd notion? Well, yes. I did all those things, actually. I'm fantastic."

She waited for him to barge ahead of her and do the door-knocking himself but when she looked at him expectantly, he was only returning her stare.
"What are you waiting for?" she ask

Elena looked out the windows nervously as they pulled up to a large cabin just a mile or so out of town. There wasn't a single pane of glass on the wooden building, and pine trees bowed toward the house as if they were put there to purposely hide it. There was no door that Nessa could see, and when Sky killed the engine the sound of insects pierced through into the silence of the cab.
Nessa couldn't blame Elena for her anxiety; just sitting on the curb of this place, surrounded by other cars, she felt like revving the engine and getting the fluff out of there. It was impossible to explain it correctly, but Nessa could feel the magic with the chill that seeped into the car. The darkness that accompanied it.
There was a moment longer of silence before Will spoke. "Well, you ladies have fun. I'll just wait in here."
"Where's the fun in that?" Sky tried to joke, but even he sounded unsure of himself. Nessa was getting the feeling that they'd never gone undercover in this way before and she
