“I will not stay here,” she declared. “Not in this team. Not with you.” She scraped her nails along the bracelet, feeling for the clasp that would open it, then looked down at it and saw there was not even a trace of a latch. The very lines had blended into the metal and disappeared. Locked in place. It was all the latest technology and bound her to the team more thoroughly than manacles. “Get this off me.”
Sturn gazed at her for a still moment, then calmly focused on her earlier words. “How do you know I kill?”
She settled her breathing, trying to calm herself. He clearly wasn’t about to leap at her. “I told you.”
“What else do you know about me?”
She frowned at him. “I know that you are a complete bastard if you don’t take this teleporter off me the moment we get back.”
