“This is a nice change of scenery,” Hunter said.

“We’re in a prison cell,”I said blankly, glaring at him.

“I was being sarcastic,” he muttered, rolling his eyes. I paced around the perimeter of the small cell while Hunter sat nonchalantly in the middle watching me. We were trapped in an abandoned warehouse in the middle of nowhere, all because my clan thought it would be wise if he and I were to partner up on this job. Hunter and I couldn’t be any more different. He was charismatic and a ladies man, while I was introverted and didn’t think highly of the opposite gender.
