Author: Edward T. Hall

Author: Phil Jackson

The Republic of Heaven."

A soft mist blew around them. Raindrops glistened in his hair, shimmering under the pale glow of the light post. His eyes were shadowed beneath wispy fringes, but the silver in them glinted like pools of liquid mercury. Her breath caught. It must have made a sound because his fingers tightened. His shaky exhale whispered across her face."This," he whispered so quietly she almost didn't hear him. "Is why you are so bad for me."
