"My God, what are you doing here?"

Maxi could not stop staring at him.

Riftan seemed just as stunned as he helped her to her feet. "Did I hurt you?"

His gauntlet dug painfully into her skin as his large hand gripped her shoulder. Jolted back to her senses, she swept her eyes over him from head to toe. Her vision turned misty as tears began to well. She carefully took in his powerful frame, black eyes round with surprise, the cold expression across his dark features, and disheveled hair.

Her lips quivered, and she threw herself into his arms. Riftan stood stone-still. A second later, his arms snaked around her. All the tension in her body seemed to dissolve at once. Flattening herself against his breastplate, she felt her thin thread of self-control snap, and she burst into sobs.

"W-What on earth… happened? D-Do you have any idea how worried I was?"

"There's no need for that now. I'm fine."
