Jasper:Stone Society Book 6(3)

By: Faith Gibson

Dante asked, “Did you see who it was?”

Jasper nodded, “It was Theron.”

“Who’s Theron?” Deacon asked.

“Alistair’s son,” Dante responded. “Matthew, will you please occupy Connor with a video game? He has a new system, and I’m afraid I’m not very good at it.” Dante motioned for the others to return outside. Jasper wanted to hold onto Trevor, but he couldn’t. Not now. When they were outside, Dante asked, “Why is Theron following Trevor?”

Trevor was glad they went outside. He had been right when he told Jasper he was in a league of badasses. The testosterone in Dante’s living room proved it. He stepped closer to Dante, away from Jasper. The photos of Jasper with his old lover were still fresh in his mind. He had gone out of town to get away from the gorgeous redhead. Now, Trevor was back, and Jasper looked like he’d seen a ghost. He shoved his hands in his pockets but kept his eyes on Jasper’s face. He was waiting for Jasper to admit he and this Theron were lovers. Why else would a stranger be following Trevor all across Georgia?

“A very long time ago, my path crossed with Theron’s,” Jasper said to the men standing around. They obviously knew who Theron and Alistair were. Trevor, however, didn’t have a clue.

“Crossed paths how?” one of the badasses asked.

Jasper didn’t immediately answer. He cut his eyes to Trevor, but that was all the indication he needed to know Jasper and Theron had a past together.

“That’s all right, Jasper. You can tell them,” Trevor said. “Please excuse me.” Trevor didn’t wait on anyone to give him permission to leave the conversation. He entered the house and stopped when he got to the living area. The small boy Dante called Connor said, “First room on the left down the hallway.”

Okay, that was weird. He found the room he was looking for and went in, closing the door behind him. Trevor closed the toilet lid and sat down, elbows to his knees, head in his hands. He probably should have stayed outside and listened to Jasper’s explanation, but he couldn’t bring himself to do it. He didn’t want to think about Jasper with anyone else, especially another one of the badass bunch. Seeing him with Craig had been enough to convince him that he and Jasper didn’t belong together. Trevor knew he wasn’t much to look at. He’d had one failed attempt at a relationship. If he couldn’t make it work with someone more like him, how did he ever think he could be with someone like Jasper?

After a while, Trevor heard voices in the living room. He knew he was acting like a child hiding out in Dante’s bathroom, but he couldn’t handle being around Jasper. There was a knock on the door, and Dante said, “He’s gone. You can come out.”

Trevor rose and took a deep breath. He blew it out and opened the door, fully expecting Dante to be in the hall. Instead, his boss’s voice came from the living room. He was chatting with Connor about the video game. Connor stood from the couch and motioned for Dante to lean down. When he did, Connor placed their foreheads together. When the child pulled away, Dante ruffled his hair, and Connor walked toward Trevor. He stopped in front of him and did some weird thing where he placed his fist on his chest and bowed his head. And Trevor thought himself strange.

Dante said, “I think it’s time you and I had a chat. Would you like something to drink?”

Trevor did indeed need a drink, but he wasn’t going to get sloshed and make a fool of himself. “I’m good, thanks.”

Dante sat in the arm chair and waited for Trevor to have a seat. “First off, I want you to know we will protect you from Theron.”

“We, as in the league of badasses?” Trevor laughed, but he wasn’t joking.

“We are not a league, but a clan. What I’m about to tell you is going to be hard to believe at first, but once I finish, I hope you will forgive me for keeping the truth from you for so long. The men who were here earlier are part of my Clan, the Stone Society. The warden is my brother. Rafael Stone, the architect, is also our brother, along with Sinclair who lives on the West Coast. We have many cousins as well as clan members we also call brother. We are primordial beings put here to protect humans from not only monsters such as the Unholy, but from each other. I think it will be easier for me to show you what I am, rather than telling you.”
