Jasper and Annalese hurried out to a waiting car, saw Hale and stopped short. “Grab him!” Jasper yelled. Annalese moved to block Hale’s path, while the suited driver came up behind. Hale tried to dodge between the heeled lady and the suited man, but tripped on the curb.

“What brings you to this part of town? Hm? Do you even know where you are?”

Hale stopped struggling. It would be just his luck that he’d wandered into their lair.

“Take him with us.”
