“I don’t know. Truthfully, I wish Marshall and Jerrett could return, as they already know how things work there. But I don’t want to divide Jerrett’s family again, particularly so soon after he’s just returned. And as for Marshall . . . Well, he would be in considerable danger there.” She paused, in thought. “In any case, we’ll figure it out. I’ll bring it up at the meeting tonight after the ceremony for Saga.”
Nina stood and paced. Finally, she sighed deeply, and turned back. “I liked her,” she said. “Saga, I mean. What happened to her?”
Mara’s shoulders slumped. “Ahhh . . . magic. Magic happened to her.”
Nina’s eyes narrowed. “Magic?”
“Yes. I’m sorry, that’s all I can say. But we’ve been together too long for me to keep this truth from you. It was a terrible, terrible accident. So, I’d appreciate it if you kept this to yourself.”
A knock came at the door. Mara turned as Dixon entered. He held her gaze for a long moment.
Finally, she turned back Nina’s way. “What do you say, then? Are we in agreement?”
