Twilight Heart : How do you mend a broken heart?…Put it back into the sorceress it came out of.
There’s only one way to lift Mallory’s death curse and Alec will do anything to save his friend.
“I couldn’t imagine that anyone would be calling me at this time of the night unless it was an emergency. The scrabbling ahead sounded far enough away that I’d have a chance to at least check who was calling before the creature reached me so I dropped the flashlight and dug the phone out of my pocket.
Felicity’s name was on the screen.
The sound in the tunnel was getting closer.
I backed up slightly and answered the call. The flashlight illuminated the tunnel in front of me so I’d know as soon as the ghoul appeared. I should have enough time to find out if Felicity needed me urgently. If she did, I’d back up all the way out of the tunnel and go help her. The ghoul could wait. It wasn’t going anywhere.
“Alec,” she said as I held the phone to my ear. “Are you there? The line’s a bit crackly.”
“I’m here,” I told her. “I’m in a tunnel.”

“Yeah, I know how late it is. What’s up?”
The scrabbling sound had stopped. Maybe the creature was biding its time or maybe my light had put it off. Either way, I couldn’t hear it moving toward me anymore. I hoped I wasn’t going to have to go chasing it deeper into this underground warren; I wasn’t sure I could handle the smell if I had to go any further.”
