Before Iain could answer, Ash came through the door, followed by an entire army of people. Or it seemed like an army. Ash stopped in the middle of the room and looked at Raven before turning around in a slow circle, clearly looking for Iain.

Iain tried to keep his expression neutral and failed completely.
Ash walked across the room and knelt down in front of Iain. “How are you feeling?”READ MORE
He had imagined this conversation in his mind, and in it, he refused to give Ash the time of day, ignoring him. In his mind, he even told himself he’d flirt with one of the other guys that had sat with him at the hospital providing him with protection. All of his plans went right out of his head when his hurt feelings bubbled in his gut. “Why do you care?”
“Are you asking me, or telling me I should?”
“Neither. Both.” Iain thought about that for a moment. “The last one, because you’re supposed to be my hero. A hero sees it through, Ash.”
“Are you in pain?”

“So you’re a little bitchy then.”
“Oh my god, you better step away from me slowly.”
Ash grinned and leaned into him. “I’m sorry for hurting your feelings. I stayed away because I figured you’d lie about being in pain unless I pissed you off first,” he whispered. He stood up and looked around at everyone. “I’m taking him upstairs. Putting him in the room across from mine.”COLLAPSE
