Addie woke to the feeling of something brushing his cheek and grabbed onto the hand, his eyes snapping open, a glare already in them. “I told you to stop waking me like that.”
“I knocked, Addie, but you didn’t answer.” Magnus’s smile was infuriating and Addie shoved his hand away then sat up.
“Then leave me alone.”
“Breakfast is ready, you need to eat.”
“I’m not hungry.” Addie looked away from him and Magnus reached over, grabbing his chin and making him look into his eyes.
“Heroes should stay healthy.”
Addie jerked his chin away. “I’m not a hero anymore.”
Magnus sighed. “But you are my guest, so come and eat.” He leaned in closer, his smile widening. “Or perhaps you would like me to make you?”
Addie had to stop himself from striking Magnus, knowing it would only add fuel to the villains amusement. “Fine, I’ll get up.”
“Thank you, Addie, I’ll see you at the table.”
Magnus left him and Addie swallowed down the lump of anger and sadness in his throat. After everything, one mistake had landed him here with his former nemesis. He was sure Magnus was overjoyed at having to take care of a fallen hero and he hated it, but Magnus was the only one who had been willing to take him in.
