Turning, Huntley saw a flash of metal gleam in the half light of the alley. One of the attackers stepped back from the victim, a long and wicked blade streaked with bright red in his hand. Blood quickly began to soak through the front of the victim舗s waistcoat and run through his fingers as he pressed against the wound in his stomach. 舠Morris isn舗t going anywhere,舡 the knife-wielding man said.

Thalia put her hand on her father舗s shoulder and gave him a supportive squeeze as he removed his glasses and covered his eyes.
