Tansy Rayner Roberts
I waited a little longer, letting the water soak into my hair and clothes. The Furies could come for me now. It was the perfect place and time. They had to come. I hadn’t just failed to save my sister this time around, I had let her die. Her blood was well and truly on my hands . If there was anything the Furies loved, it was meting out justice to one of my kind when we did something unforgiveable to someone we loved.I strained my ears for the sound of heavy wings beating the air. Nothing but the rain. Later, then. They would come for me later. Right now, it was time to go to work.
