The Eyes Of A Fetch (Excerpt 386) Surprises Him
Crispin saying her name causes Lyla to jump slightly and she pulls back from the door. Turning around, she looks up at him and watches him intently for any expressions that may let her know how he is feeling. “I was very worried about you last night, are you feeling okay?” she asks softly.
