“No, but Teltharian can, and he was buried between your legs at the time.” He eyed her, sniffing when Raina didn’t blush.

“I told you it was too dangerous to travel,” Raina said, purple eyes smoldering. “People died because you are too cheap to replace our shields!”

“Careful, girl! Selling you would solve many problems.”
