"Karla!" Xariel yelled, ignoring the back door as it banged open.
He skidded to a stop in the living room, eyes narrowing. He sensed Samael's presence, but not Karla's.
Gabriel came up behind him. "What the hell happened here?"
"He's got her." Xariel's breathing and heart rate slammed into overdrive. His vision blurred as fury clouded the logical part of his mind.
"Samael, Goddamn it. He's got her. I know he does." He glared at Gabriel. "And if he knows who she is, he'll kill her."
Xariel stumbled to the bar, grabbing a half-pint of Crown Royal. Unscrewing the cap, he poured a shot glass, gulped down the whisky, and ignored the burn. Another shot followed. Then another. And another. And still another.
He continued to glower at Gabriel as he drained three-fourths of the whiskey in less than thirty seconds.
"Get a fucking grip." Gabriel grabbed the bottle and tossed it aside, ignoring Xariel's protesting cry. His scythe materialized in his hands. "Or I'll kill you myself."
