Her smile grew bigger. “Sounds like I’d get along with your sister.”
Apollo’s smile was brighter than the sun rising behind them. He reached across the car and took her hand in his. Deirdre’s heart skipped a beat. “Something tells me you would.”
She fought back the smitten school girl look she was certain was on her face. She rubbed her fingers against the leather on the door. “Did I tell you that your ride is sick? It had to set you back a ton.”
Apollo rubbed his thumb idly across her flesh. “It’s custom. When you’re a god, it’s pretty easy to snap your fingers and get what you want. Which I didn’t do per se. I mean the pulling the sun thing? Yeah, I had to use my power there. But the actual car I bought from a private owner. It sat unused in a garage for a decade. I cleaned it up then went through it with a fine tooth comb. I spent months making it run well enough to do the job. It’s not like I can call for a tow truck in the sky.”
“Wow. Sexy and works on cars. Maybe I have more in common with you, too, than I thought.”
She caught his wink at her before he spoke. “I sure as hell hope so.”
The mood between them was shattered by the sound of a fifties beach song coming from Apollo’s pants. He muttered an apology as he pulled free from Deirdre’s grasp and plunged his hand into his pocket. He rummaged for a moment before he pulled free his cell and answered it. He glanced at her as tapped the screen to put it on speaker.
“What’s up, Uncle?” he questioned the device in his hand.
“There’s another tear in reality,” the deep voice from the speaker.
Apollo mouthed the name “Poseidon” to Deirdre before he continued, “Where is it?”
“Heathrow Airport. Right on the tarmac. It almost swallowed an entire plane. The pilot almost drove right into it but managed to just get the nose inside. It was enough to allow some scary looking ancient samurai to crawl out on it. Ares and Athena are there now with Juliet and Mac but they need reinforcements as soon as possible.”
