I just picked something that sounded fancy. Since we don't really have a song or anything. It somehow managed to make my heart both ache and leap.
I kissed the top of her golden head, taking in the mingled scents of her soap and skin. When Jill's out there. I had to forcibly push away the darkness, making myself step back from a dangerous precipice I knew all too well these days. It's probably worth pointing out that the voice that kept speaking in my head wasn't part of some mental exercise.
It was actually a very distinct voice, belonging to my dead aunt Tatiana, former queen of the Moroi. She wasn't with me in any ghostly form, though. Her voice was a delusion, born out of the increasing grip insanity was taking on me, thanks to the rare type of magic I used.
A quick prescription would have shut her up, but it also would've cut me off from my magic, and our world was too unpredictable right now for me to do that.
And so this phantom Aunt Tatiana and I had become roommates in my mind. Sometimes that delusional presence terrified me, making me wonder how long it would be until I completely lost it. At other times, I found myself taking her in stride—and that scared me even more, that I was coming to regard her as normal.
I could tell she was trying to summon back that earlier cheer. Maybe I should go dig out that gown. But I kind of like you underdressed. In fact, I wouldn't mind if you were a lot more underdressed.
Heat filled me as I felt the softness of her lips, and I was surprised to sense an answering passion in her. In light of our recent circumstances, Sydney hadn't been feeling particularly physical, and honestly, I couldn't blame her. I'd respected her wishes and kept my distance. We found ourselves sinking down onto the couch, arms wrapped tightly around each other, still kissing passionately. I paused to study her, admiring the way the candlelight shone on her blond hair and brown eyes.
I could've drowned in that beauty, that and the love I could feel radiating off of her. It was a perfect, much-needed romantic moment.
It looks like a mausoleum in here. Was the power out? But you really shouldn't have lit so many candles. It's dangerous. You'd think everyone would be busy at the council meeting, but no. So many stares. I couldn't relax. So they just let me bring one with me. Ah, there. Mom, you know how Sydney feels about that.
His eyes—dazed and happy from the endorphins he received from letting vampires feed off of him—stared around blankly. My mother sighed in exasperation. There was absolutely no way I could feed with Maureen Tarus and Gladys Dashkov sitting there and gossiping right beside me.
Since Sydney and I had gotten married and sought refuge at Court, most people—including my own father— had turned their backs on us. My mom had stood by us, even going so far as to live with us—which wasn't without its complications. Spotting the truffles on the table, she paused to pop one in her mouth.
It's my home too. Passion was no longer the issue. All traces of that earlier happiness I'd seen in Sydney were gone. She was retreating back into herself, back to that hopeless feeling of being a human stuck in a world of vampires. And then, impossibly, things got worse. My mother had noticed one of the peony vases. At other times, Daniella Ivashkov was a remarkably astute woman.
Today, however, she seemed to be in fully oblivious mode. She was having a terrible acne flare-up, and Adrian was nice enough to speed along its healing. She promised to help get some peonies in stock in return.
Needing to calm this situation immediately, I grabbed hold of her arm and pulled her into our bedroom. Sydney lashed out immediately.
You promised! You promised no more spirit, unless it was to help find Jill! Every little bit. You can't waste it on stuff like this. For our anniversary. I thought you'd like it. She doesn't know the half of it, remarked Aunt Tatiana.
Sydney crossed her arms and sat on the bed. There you go. Making a joke of everything. This is serious, Adrian. I know what I can handle. I still think you'd be better off stopping spirit altogether.
Go back on your pills.
It's safest. No one's magic has. Our friend Jill Mastrano Dragomir had been kidnapped a month ago, and so far, our efforts to find her had been for nothing. I hadn't been able to reach Jill in spirit dreams, nor had Sydney—an adept student of human witchcraft—been able to locate her using the spells at her disposal.
The best Sydney's magic had been able to tell us was that Jill was still alive, but that was it. The general belief was that wherever she was, Jill was being drugged—which could effectively hide someone from both human and Moroi magic. It didn't stop us from both feeling useless, though. We both cared about Jill immensely— and my relationship with her was particularly intense since I'd once used spirit magic to bring her back from the brink of death.
Not knowing what had happened to her now had cast a shadow over Sydney and me—and any attempts at happiness we'd mustered while under this self-imposed house arrest. There's no telling what I'll need to do. I flinched.
Let me worry about me and how much spirit I can use. It's not your job. I'm your wife, Adrian. If I'm not going to worry about you, who will? You need to keep spirit in check.
I looked away, refusing to meet her eye. In my head, Aunt Tatiana sighed. You never should have told her about me.
At my silence, Sydney said, 'She is, isn't she? Adrian, that's not healthy! You have to know that! I can handle it, and I can handle her! You don't know everything—no matter how much you want everyone to think you do! The pain in her eyes hurt me a lot more than her earlier words had. I felt terrible. How had this day gone so wrong? It was supposed to have been perfect.
Suddenly, I needed to get out. I couldn't stand these four walls anymore. I couldn't stand my mother's control. I couldn't stand feeling like I was always disappointing Sydney—and Jill. Sydney and I had come to Court to seek protection from our enemies, hiding here so we could be together.
Lately, it seemed like this arrangement was in danger of tearing us apart. Sydney's eyes widened. Anywhere to get some air. Anywhere but here.
She gave me a quizzical look, but I ignored it and kept on going until I was out our door and through the lobby of the guest-housing building. It wasn't until I emerged outside, until the balmy summer air hit my skin, that I paused to evaluate my actions—and pop a piece of gum, which was my current way to avoid smoking when stressed. I stared back up at the building, feeling guilty and cowardly for running out on our fight. Don't feel bad, Aunt Tatiana said. Marriage is hard.
That's why I never did it. It is hard, I agreed. But that's not an excuse to run away. I need to go back. I need to apologize. I need to work things out.
You're never going to work things out as long as you're locked up here and Jill's still missing, warned Aunt Tatiana. Two guardians walked past me just then, and I caught a piece of their conversation, mentioning extra patrols for the council meeting going on.
I remembered my mom's earlier comment about that meeting, and inspiration suddenly hit. Turning away from the building, I began hurrying toward what served as the royal palace here at Court, hoping I could get to the meeting in time.
I know what to do, I told Aunt Tatiana. I know how to get us out of here and fix things with Sydney and me. We need a purpose, a goal.
And I'm going to get us one. I need to talk to Lissa. If I can make her understand, I can fix everything. That phantom made no response as I walked. Around me, midnight had clothed the world in darkness—bedtime for humans, prime time for those of us on a vampiric schedule. The Moroi Court was set up like a university: forty or so venerable brick buildings arranged around beautifully landscaped quads and courtyards.
