Eve's face hurt. Being punched would do that, even to an Immortal like her. And she supposed from their point of view she had deserved it. But they had their friends back now. Jacen and Sam, they had them back and neither had broken like she had promised the Partners. Not even Sam. Not even Sam had given in to his addiction in the face of it. With the need right there in front of him.
And she'd been left with nothing. Only an offer from Lindsey that he would help her.
And that opened up a whole new bucket of complicated.
She'd done it, she'd actually walked away, and it was confusing, scary as all hell, confusing as everything. But maybe he was right and this is what she had to do, the Partners would never be happy with her now, she refused to hurt Lindsey, refused to tempt him back in, though she had tried since coming here, she'd tried and he'd resisted out of love for Cathy. It wasn't ever what she'd expected for him, to fall in love with Evita, with an actress way above her station and out of her leauge.
She climbed out of her car having pulled into the parking lot and looked around still wary and still with her hand on a gun in her purse, just in case. She was happy to admit she was paranoid. Who wouldn't be.
