My eyes open wide at the sound of her voice, then I force a tight smile, no teeth showing. "Aye, lass. I think so, too."
Wonder if Raina heard her, too? She's so quiet, she might easily have missed it. Nick, now - being a vamp, his hearing's better than ours; but he still might not have heard her if he wasn't paying full attention.
Which leads me to wonder if I actually heard her speak, or if my mind made it up out of whole cloth and wishful thinking.
I glance up at Rowan. "Could you use an escort home, ma'am?" I smile. "I'd be more than happy to make sure you get back safely."
