Chapter 9
Gate 3

Valiance found Deceptor with her eyes, not thoughts. When she did, she looked at him fondly and walked up to him, kissing his cheek and pulling him to the chair next to hers. He grinned back weakly, slumping down into the chair and laying his head affectionately on her shoulder, long legs stretching out in front of him. He was tired. Valiance could see it, even though he tried to hide it.

“How are the kids?” Deceptor murmured.

That took Valiance by surprise. That can wait, she snapped at him through her thoughts. We need to break them out!

I know, said Deceptor. But I’m asking you. I want to know how they are.

How should I know? I haven’t seen them for centuries. I met up with Svaire for coffee one time. But that’s it. We need to focus now.

“Okay. I followed the thoughts of the security guards as they brought them to the chief’s office. They are underground, so we need to look for a door. I can feel Warrior’s thoughts more than anyone’s, he’s the strongest.”

“Do you know where they are exactly?”

Deceptor shook his head. “No.” he said in a low voice.

“Can you ask Warrior?”

A brief flash of pain appeared on his face.

“What is it?”

“I have just developed this ability. I haven’t used it enough to get used to it. It hurts and drains me, especially when they are farther away.”

Valiance put a hand on his shoulder. “You can do it. Please try.”

Deceptor huffed. He closed his eyes and focused. Valiance rested her head against his. “You can do it,” she whispered. Deceptor softened his concentrated facial expression and put an arm around her, holding her tight. “I will.”
