Edge of Thorns 3 - Pt 23Part 23
The more I hold off telling him, the harder this will be. Probably best to tell him now than drag it out further...
A reporter that may or may not try to report on what he learns. Nathan rubbed his hand across his face. "May as well tell him. And emphasize that he's not to tell anyone else. I think it would be much harder to try to dance around the subject, and for all we know, the break-in might have been Sin related." He frowned. "We've already established that associating with me makes you a prime target for their antics."
"Wonder how I've dodged that bullet," Enya mumbled, then put the phone to her ear again. "Still there? Okay, just hang tight, Scott. I'll be over in a few minutes." She hung up and slipped the phone into her back pocket while she started towards the door to get her coat. Nathan followed after.
"I'll ride with you," he said. "I can at least start getting him up to speed on the way back. With luck, he won't think I've gone completely insane."

I don't understand...
"So..." Nathan said slowly, trying to gather his thoughts together. "Can anyone explain to me why this is a bad thing?

"He asked me what happened that had him sensing me in danger." He waiting, watch while Alton's smile faded. "I'm sorry; I had to tell him..."
"No, you didn't," the devil breathed, eyes narrowing at him before he turned to Gabriel.

"Well, I suppose we best discuss it now," he drawled, clearly agitated. "If we're lucky, we may actually be able to enjoy this holiday."
They watched him leave and heard him calling to the others to gather, saying he had something important to tell them now that they were all here. Nathan grimace
