“I’m just a bodyguard who’s good at blending in.”
“There is nothing just anything about you. You are interesting, Lady Casey.”
She blinked at him. “Excuse me? What did you call me?”
“You are displaying a psionic talent. Meaning you are Aunimaa, one of the chosen ones the Enclave favors. Given I’m still building my court, and you are one of my subjects, I am giving you a rank.”
Her mouth snapped shut, and she shook her head. “You cannot make me a lady.” Only too late did she frown as she realized her words.
“Actually, I can. I am the king, and I declare you Countess Casey, protector of the royal family.”
She almost felt ill at the ridiculous title. “I refuse.”
“You can’t refuse an honor.”
“That’s not an honor. It’s a reason for my friends to mock me. A lady.” She sniffed.
“Are you a snob, Countess?” He pretended affront.
She bestowed upon him a most regal scowl.
The jerk had the nerve to laugh.
