Nicholas was still focused on JJ, at least until he knew, "and the baby?"
"She's fine," JJ assured him. "She's strong. She was kicking and dancing the whole time. They checked and gave me the all clear, she wasn't affected at all."
Now Nicholas could truly turn to Victor as well. "You kept my family safe," he said gently. "Thank you."
Victor shook his head slightly, still refusing to look at them. "That's not what happened."
"Bullshit it isn't," JJ shot back, which was the thing which finally made Victor look over at them. "Every time the demons were there, they made him choose. Who got water? Who got food? Who got tortured? He always chose in favour of me."
