Zeus was going to be less than pleased with this recent development. We’d avoided tangling with law enforcement for this exact reason. My mind was blank and I couldn’t think of a single way out that wouldn’t involve using magic and digging our hole that much deeper.
And here I’d always thought getting arrested would be much cooler. Turns out it was anything but. The cool kiss of metal hugged my wrists as one of the deputies turned me around and put the handcuffs on. I stole a glance at Ares. He was furious.
Good. Serves him right. Artie had a confused look on her face and seemed not able to believe this was happening. Once the deputy had lowered my head and unceremoniously shoved me into the patrol car, I began to think madly. Artie tumbled in next to me, but Ares managed to get the special treatment and ended up in the back of Marshall’s cruiser.
I snickered, but at Artie’s outraged look, I cleared my throat and plastered a sober expression on my face. Secretly I found our debacle a little hilarious, but I knew it was only a matter of time before Zeus got wind of our hijinks. Then we were really in for it.
“What do we do?” hissed Artie.
I leaned my head back against the seat leather, trying not to think about what other suspects may have left behind. “No idea. We could blink out of here, but it could cause us more trouble than it’s worth. Any ideas?”
“Not one,” she grumbled. “And these handcuffs are uncomfortable. Why do all of those TV shows make getting arrested look so glamorous?”
Sheryl has had a book in her hands pretty much from the time she could hold things with her hands. Her love of reading turned into a curious exploration to see whether or not she could write her own. Beginning with random, terrible poetry and a slightly popular reimagining of Beowulf's Grendel in her high school English class, Sheryl spent way too much time in the library, killing any chance of her becoming a cheerleader or anything even remotely cool.
