Conclusion to the Cassie Scot series.
“Don’t say it," I warned Evan.
“You know what.”
“That deep down inside you’re still in love with me.” Evan made it a statement, not a question.
I snorted, but when I looked at him, I saw something in his eyes that gave me pause. There was hope, but also something akin to fear. It was gone almost as soon as I noticed it, his mask more or less back in place, but I’d seen it, and it made me nervous.
“Don’t bet on it,” I said.
He stared at me, openly, and though at first I tried to stare back, I couldn’t maintain the stance. Something was going on inside that brain of his, but I couldn’t work out what and didn’t think I wanted to know.
“I will bet on it,” Evan said, suddenly.
“I bet you’re still in love with me.”
“You’ll bet that I’m still in love with you?” Maybe the confusion potion was still working after all. I eyed the exit, considering.
“Exactly,” Evan said, his voice rising in enthusiasm.
“We’ll ask James Blair, human lie detector, to settle the truth of it. He owes me a small favor.”
“Am I dreaming now?” I asked.
Evan didn’t even crack a smile. “I’m serious about this.”
“All right then, assuming you’re serious, what do I get when I win?”
“If you win.”
“When.” Seriously, did he think I wouldn’t know? He definitely had to be suffering the aftereffects of the confusion potion.
