“I want you to bring my sister back from the dead.”
Cyrus schooled his features into something neutral, though he was certainly startled by this request. Yes, mortals often wished to resurrect their loved ones. But ordinarily, witches knew better. They understood the barrier between life and death wasn’t so easily crossed.
“What makes you think I can do this?” Cyrus asked quietly.
“You are the god of the dead, are you not? And tonight is Samhain.”
Ah, Samhain. The humans’ pitiful explanation for the resurgence of death magic. Whenever the magic of the Underworld seeped into the mortal realm, the humans had to come up with some reason for it. Something to explain the unexplainable.
But some things could not be understood. Even Cyrus did not understand the full extent of the death magic floating in the air.
“Let me rephrase,” Cyrus said at last. “What makes you think I would do this for you? Surely, you understand there are laws I cannot break.” His mouth curved into a smirk. “Even for witches as beautiful as you.”
He expected her to blush, but instead, she lifted her chin, her eyes flashing with indignation. “Spare me your flattery. It won’t get you anywhere.”
Cyrus only lifted his eyebrows. Fair enough. Though, he couldn’t deny she was beautiful. Despite the mess of dirt and fruit juice along her hands and skirts, her soft curves and ample bosom were quite pleasing for him to look at. Not to mention her smooth skin, full lips, and luscious curls. Yes, she was certainly prettier than the other mortals he had encountered. No doubt about that.
But he shouldn’t find her pretty. She was his captor. She had entrapped him. She was nothing more than his enemy.
“Stop looking at me like that,” she snapped.
“Like you want to devour me.”
A wicked smile spread across his face, and before he could stop himself, he said, “Maybe I do.”
