warnings and other lies

"Its against the law," Drex warned. "You didn't kidnap her, did you?"

"Of course, not." Jonah rolled his eyes. "I just don't think you needed to butt your nose in where it doesn't belong!"

"Stop drugging her, for starters," Drex told him. "Joey, is perfectly fine. And frankly, I don't know how she can even stand it here. Especially, if you let things go on like this."

"What has she told you?"

"Nothing." Drex stared at him expecting him to give nothing away. "It would be easier if you just eased up, you know, if she has to be here, then let her have her own life. Don't keep her hostage in your room."

"Fine." Jonah crossed his arms.

"Lux keeps calling. She hasn't heard from you. She sounds desperate. I have no idea why," Drex smirked.

"I'll deal with her. Just let me handle that." Jonah heaved as if he really had no time for any of them. As if they were small fish to fry. He couldn't let the big stuff get away.

"Well, don't wait too long," Drex stared back at his brother. "You still plan on marrying her, don't you."

"In time, in good time," Jonah let it go at that, he was on his way to his room just then.

Drex caught Jonah's arm. "Don't you hurt her, don't you dare lay hand on her!"

"I'm not," Jonah winced. "I just need to get a few things cleared up, that's all. You'll see, we'll be one happy family. We will."

Drex wondered how long Jonah had been believing that lie.
