Evan seeks Alastor's blessing as he plans to propose to Sierra.
Alastor stood. “I know you’re going to do whatever you want, so I don’t know why you even asked.”
Evan got to his feet. “I want your blessing. I want you to want this for us.”
“I will never want it, Evan. I wish Sierra and Sashe had left as soon as Seth moved to Rahuda.” His voice was low and threatening. “I would do anything to keep them safe—”
“Even sacrificing their happiness?”
Alastor shook his head and walked to the door. “They can’t be happy if they’re dead.”
