He cupped her cheek and seemed to understand her dilemma. “It pains me to say this more than you could ever know. Once Zadicus and his family are dead, I will break my bond with you if that’s what you desire. For once in your life, you will be free to make your own choice.”
She opened her mouth to speak, but words had become foreign to her.
“Yes, I have the knowledge on how to break our bond but understand this. There will never be another for me. Once you walk away, I will never see you again. Watching you with another man would be like shoving a dagger into my heart.”
She swallowed. “I thought Jinn could take another vetemba.”
“It happens sometimes, but for me it will forever only be you.”
She felt tears sting her eyes. He was willing to let her go. Give back her freedom. “I-I don’t know what to say.”
He stepped back, releasing her, and she found they were both clothed again. “Tell me that you’ll become a powerful witch and live a happy life. Once I’m certain of your safety, I know a way to give you back your grandmother’s power.”
The tears rolled and her chest tightened. She had to give him what he needed too. “Crone, I never blamed you for my grandmother’s death, but if it will release you from your burden… I forgive you,” she whispered. His body visibly relaxed.
“Thank you.” He held out his hand. “It’s time to meet the others.”
She nodded, wondering how one minute she could experience a mind-blowing orgasm and the next feel so empty. But this is what you wanted. Crone can give you everything. Freedom and power. But there was this nagging question.
“Wait!” She’d started to reach for him then hesitated.
“What is it?”
How could she ask this? “Why have you decided to do this? Break the bond?” To the point was always the best.
He leaned in and kissed her cheek. “Because your happiness will always come first.”
