Chapter 68

A crimson flush rose on Riftan's face. He brought his head down to hers and gritted his teeth.

"Are you done?"

Maxi did not back down, glaring right back at him. "I-I am not! You are the most… o-obstinate person alive!"

"Obstinate?"

He gaped at her as if doubting his ears.

"You're calling me obstinate?" he shot back, his voice rising. "You?"

"That's right! I called you obstinate! What of it?"

Riftan's face contorted at her defiant glare before he exploded in anger. "That's rich! You're as stubborn as a mule! When have I ever succeeded in bending your will?!"

Maxi faltered. It occurred to her then that she had always done what she wanted, whether Riftan approved or not. Still, she could not bring herself to meekly admit it.
