I lay on the table, the skirt hiked to my waist, my body so full of blood and need that I couldn\'t move. I was angry, angry that they\'d stopped us. I knew that was stupid. I knew I didn\'t want to have sex in an interrogation room in front of an entire precinct, and yet... I was still angry, still wanting. A young uniformed cop was standing beside the table. He was trying not to stare and failing. It was easy to grab his hand, to press the Tears over the pulse point in his wrist. His blood beat against my hand, and he bent over me, kissed me before anyone noticed what was happening.
Bitter, a little, but mostly just very aware that I was an outsider. I was sidhe so I couldn\'t be human, and I was mortal so I couldn\'t be sidhe. Neither fish nor fowl.

Whatever the reason, Detective Alvera didn\'t like my story. He sat across from me, tall, dark, slender, with hands that looked too big for his narrow shoulders.
