Alise looks to Stoney and her face loses all color. “Mon Dieu, what could have happened?” His arm moves protectively across her belly, her hand on top of his. “But Chiot, people, even little ones cannot just disappear. Something has happened, someone has to know something. Those poor families, how awful.. Have the shifters heard of anything?”
Stoney nods, “I will go ask. Ron and some of his friends are here, I saw them earlier. Will you stay here by Ob? Please? Ob, will you watch her for me? Something just isnt right tonight, I am worried...”
Ob nods and then pulls Alise right up next to him, Alise squealing in surprise, “Barbare!”
“Its about time you realized mon fluer was too much of woman for a mere gargoyle to handle.” Obs mind reaches for Stoneys, You know I will watch her and the little ones as if they were my own. Go, see what you can find out...
Stoney stands and nods at Ob...Thank you...smart ass....
Alise watches as Stoney moves to the other side of the tavern and takes a seat with shifters. Her eyes glance over Morgan, hating the woman more every time she looks at her. Raina and Nick are at the bar, laughing at Guunaar who is flirting with a pretty girl.
“Rowan, where is Star? Where did she go?”
Smiling Rowan tells Alise to stop worrying, “Its not your job to worry about every person on the planet...just those two in your belly is enough for now.” But at Alise's exasperated look Rowan continues, “She went up to the widow's walk with Erik, she'll be fine. I doubt if Erik will let anyone within 20 feet of her. He was going to introduce her to his wolf.”
Alise nods, still afraid of wolves, but it was slowly getting better. She wonders if Stoney is finding out anything, him and Ron appearing to be deep in their discussion.....
