CHAPTER FOURTEEN

Vin

“A Colony has fallen.”

Marlow looks at Andy with greed in his eyes and a devilish delight in his tone when he asks, “Which one?”

“The MOHAI.”

“How many people?”

“Over two hundred.”

“Well,” he sighs, satisfied as a fat, flatulent cat. “That went well, didn’t it?”

Andy frowns. “Sir?”

“Thank you for the update, Andy,” Marlow excuses him, already waving him away. “Close the door behind you.”

Andy obediently leaves the room without a word. He pulls the door closed soundly behind him, leaving Asher and I alone with Marlow.

It’s last place in the world I want to be.

Marlow sits on his throne as always, his eyes distant. His mind is churning. I lock eyes with Asher across the room, and I know he’s thinking the same thing I am.

Did Breanne’s baby go to the MOHAI?

There are only two men in this gang who know the answer to that question: Marlow and Hector. And neither one of them will ever tell us a thing, even if we could ask them.

“The Colonies are becoming a problem,” I tell Marlow quietly, forcing him to work to hear me. “First they grab our men in a roundup and now this? The Risen population will explode if it’s not contained.”

He runs his hand over his mouth, shaking his head. “It won’t be.”

“How do you know?”

“Because I made sure it couldn’t be.”

Asher shifts, his arms dropping at his sides. “You brought the MOHAI down?”

“A team of ours did, yes.”

“Why the hell is this the first I’m hearing about it?” I demand, unable to stop myself.

Marlow never makes a move without me, and now he made a play for the MOHAI and he didn’t bring me in on it?

Marlow sits back in his seat, lowering his hand slowly. “Because, Vincent, I am not beholden to you. I owe you nothing, including an explanation of my actions.”

“You wanna throw it at me anyway? Just for fun?”

“You want to know why I did it?”

“No, I want to know why you did it without telling me.”

“Because. I. Could,” he pronounces carefully. “That’s why. I don’t need you for everything, Vin. I worry you’re beginning to get a bloated sense of self-worth. It’s troubling.”

I chew on the inside of my cheek. I taste blood but I stop myself from mouthing off any more than I already have because I’ll just be proving his point. I’ll play right into his hand.

Marlow watches me struggle with my anger for a few more seconds before continuing. “It was time to strike. The Colonies tried to hide all the jenny parts from us. They tried to short us on the baby we delivered. They forgot who they were dealing with so I made a point to remind them.”

“How did you do it?” Asher asks calmly.

“I sent a team of men into the MOHAI. They broke into their basement where they keep the generators and they stole every part they could carry. Then they went to the kitchens where they added a few jars of Risen blood to their ingredients.”

“Jesus, you poisoned them with zombie blood?” I growl.
