Excerpt from"Fury" by Merri Destefano
The palace corridors felt cold and hollow, my footsteps echoed off polished granite walls. From time to time, a familiar face nodded and spoke a greeting, but I never heard their words. I felt like I was caught in a whirlpool.
Because no matter how far I walked, I couldn’t shake off the warmth of Riley’s kiss.
It didn’t make sense. She wasn’t my type. She was too young and too feisty and too much like me. I hated to admit it, but I preferred girls who were easy to manipulate and who weren’t all that bright.
Riley was neither one of those.
The sooner I got her out of Rìoghachd, the better. Then I could get back to my regular life. I pulled my shoulders back as I picked up my pace, walking faster, remembering how I used to spend my days and nights. Gambling with Sea Warriors who sank and plundered human ships. Taking midnight strolls through Scottish villages where the girls didn’t notice my blue skin. Dining at the King’s table from golden plates and drinking salty seawine from diamond-embellished goblets.
Everything about my life had been off-kilter since that wretched Selkie arrived.
It felt empty.
I hated it.
