The theme is lie. Let sleeping dogs lie. Little white lie. Pack of lies. Cent’s catching Dane in a lie here. Go figure. 😬
“Hunters don’t age after they reach sixteen if they’re natural-born like me.” Dane almost growled her words. “But the ones I make stop agin’ wherever they’re at. You were what, forty when I made you?”
But Stowne said she wasn’t born Hunter. Cent found the lie interesting. “I’m thirty-one, thank you very little.”
“Are you repeatin’ numbers? Cause that tattoo on your ass is all wrinkled and—”
“When did you see my ass?” Cent took another swig of wine.
“I haven’t, but now I know you got a tattoo on it.”
