Salun stopped eating and stared at Sitome.

“How can you live? I should be immortal – I have devoured the very heart of you.”

“Who protects it? What spell is this?”

“No spell.”

Salun stood and slammed his fist on the table.

“Then there is a spell.”

“There’s no spell.”

“Don’t lie to me, Sitome. I always get what I want.”

“Not this time.”

“I see it.”
