It is the mastermind’s curse – fate has handed him the human equivalent of a nuclear bomb, and while he loves Eliot as strongly as any of the others, he fears the power Eliot gives him.Collapse )

Just as a historical note - Rob Roy was an actual horse at a stable where I took riding lessons just after college. And yeah, he was pretty much as I've written him - willing to do whatever you told him to and carry even the most incompetent beginner on his back around the ring...and still one of the only animals ever to make me feel like a blithering idiot without being able to say a word.

Not for the first time Eliot was struck by how much Parker resembled a skittish colt.Collapse )

He was literally itching to remove his own ear bud – anything so he wouldn’t have to listen to the two people he loved most in the world share what might be their last words to each other.Collapse )
