Within minutes, everyone is yelling. It feels like it’s all my fault. If only I could remember what happened at

the school. Before I woke up in Logan’s arms, all that’s there is a vague memory of Mom, Jeremy, and the

other Phoenixes. No actual memories. Only names and faces. 

“We all need to calm down,” Linette says, taking a seat on the couch. “Yelling isn’t going to solve anything.

We can’t even hear each other.” 

“She’s right.” Mom pats my head like I’m a toddler. I guess I am in this life, but I’m still physically


I step away, not wanting to touch anyone right now. I know she’s my mom, but she’s just as much a stranger

to me as this Logan guy is. He said he loves me. Is that true? Or is he another Hunter, preying on me because

I’m a newborn Phoenix? So many questions. That’s all I have, and it’s making my head hurt. 

Logan scans the room. “Is anybody going to let me tell you what happened?” 

Garret is standing at his side, apparently not willing to let Logan get more than two feet away from him. “I’m

sure that would be very entertaining,” Garret says. 

“Let him talk.” The words come tumbling out of my mouth. Everyone turns to me, and one corner of

Logan’s mouth curves up. I look away, not sure how to act around him. Hell, I don’t know how to act at all.

Thank God we only forget everything after our first rebirth because I couldn’t take going through this three

more times before I die. If a Hunter doesn’t kill me before I live all five of my lives, that is. 

Mom reaches for me, but I take a deep breath and shake my head. “I’m fine. I want to hear what Logan has

to say. He was there with me. He didn’t hurt me when I woke up in his arms, so I think I owe it to him to

hear him out.”

“You don’t owe anything to a Hunter, Cara,” Garret spits out.

Mom shoots him a look. “Garret, that isn’t helping.”

Logan starts toward me, and Garret grabs him.

“What do you think I’m going to do?” Logan asks, sounding equally frustrated and heartbroken. “I’m

handcuffed, my palms are burned to crisps, and the last time I checked, I’m the only human in a room full of


Part of me wants to laugh because it sounds crazy, but so does burning to ashes and rising up out of them.

Yet, here I am.
