Will Rivka and her dragon be able to save the prince’s boyfriend?

 

The prince smiled slightly. “Save him…” Then he started to faint again. 

Rivka grabbed him by both shoulders. “Wake up,” she demanded. His eyes rolled open, but she wasn’t sure if he was there. “Do you love him?” 

“Yes. More… more than life.” 

Rivka tightened her grip on him and stared into his eyes. “You have to love life as much as you love him, do you hear me? Because if you don’t live to tell me where he is, or how I can rescue him, he’ll die. So try harder.”

    Also, seeing more art makes it more difficult to wait for my boooooks…which didn’t come yet because Canada I assume.

      Probably… I checked and yes, it has been mailed. The lady in Minnesota has gotten hers but maybe yours has been held up by customs officials who wanted to find out whether or not Farzin gets rescued 😉
