Here Kitty Kitty: Chapter 8.5 by Carol Pedroso
“Maybe the hunters were a coincidence,” Meg offered. “I mean just because if they were working for Cheryl they wouldn’t have blown up the cave. The cave in would have killed Fran and then Cheryl wouldn’t be able to use her.”
Kitryn nodded thoughtfully. “I think we need to work on the assumption they are working together until it’s proved otherwise. It wouldn’t do to discount the hunters and then have them appear out of nowhere when we least expect them.”
They all agreed and Meg said she was going to try and see what gossip she could pick up amongst the females of the den.
Denied: Chapter Thirty-six by Cia Nordwell
“It’s okay, Kohen.” Captain stroked my cheek, wiping away the tears. “Someone get Aparoe in here so we can get an antidote.”
His fingers smoothed across my face, and Captain leaned down, staring into my eyes. “I’m going to lift you and we’re going to sit on the couch. Okay?”

Ryan tried calling and texting Ben, but soon discovered that number was no longer in service, and his emails remained equally unanswered. All he could do was be patient and hope that Ben would get in contact with him.
But he never did.
The Debaucher’s Diary – Entry #1 by Johayan

Once I had the address, I punched it into my phone and saw it was in a trailer park. Not too surprising given the profile.
30 minutes of traffic and road construction later, I was pulling up to a rather dilapidated trailer with a front “deck” that looked like a tornado had arranged some pallets and spare boards. It was sturdier…
