EXCERPT


SOPHIA FREEMAN AND THE WINTER BEHEMOTH (BOOK 4)

 

“What did you do to my friends, Scarlon?” Sophia gripped her wand ready to fire a spell.

“Oh, you mean the savage act? Well, it would be a waste to destroy the ones who refuse to surrender,” he explained. “So, we came up with a better plan by putting them under a mind-control spell. Of course, there are a few risks, but the return is very satisfying.” He placed his hand on Tim’s shoulder. “Our vision of the new era is finally being realized—how exciting!”­

“You monster!” She shifted into her attack position.

Without hesitation, Allen fired a demonic spell at the Chosen One. Dad rushed in front of her and blocked it with his double-bit axe. The spell shattered the weapon and punctured his chest. He collapsed to the ground, bleeding.

Marshmallow dashed over, pawing his cheek.

“Oh, that was quite a surprise.” Arbiter Scarlon stroked his long white hair. “Looks like this filthy human does care about his offspring after all.”

Sophia dropped her wand, kneeled, and lifted Dad’s head, choking on tears. “W-why did you do that?”

Dad’s fur retreated, he shrunk, and his colors changed, transforming back to human form.

“B-because that’s what p-parents do.” He placed his hand over hers, coughing. “I-I know this c-can’t change what I’ve done—b-but I hope you c-can forgive me.”

Warmth came from the shard in Sophia’s pocket. Mom must be hoping the same.

“Yes, Dad, I forgive you,” she said firmly and held him closer, tears flooding.
