TIME WEAVER: HEART OF COGS THE TIME COLLECTOR SERIES
“You’re getting slow in your old age!” Klaus mocked as he gripped Nikolas by the hair and wrenched his head back up. He held him firmly against the wall, using his forearm to apply pressure against Nikolas’ throat.
Nikolas’ eyes expanded in his surprise, “Klaus? What are you doing here?”
“Elizabeth!” Klaus rattled him, “I know you have her. Vere is she?”
Nikolas jerked his shoulder forward, throwing Klaus momentarily off balance before striking him in the chest with his flat palms. Winded, Klaus stumbled back before he straightened his posture.
Nikolas fixed his collar where Klaus had ruffled his clothes. “She’s not here.”
Klaus caught sight of the choker in Nikolas’ grip and deepened his scowl. “I’m not fooling around, Nikolas!”
“What is it with this obsession you have with her?” he mocked. “Don’t you think it’s better for her if you just stay away?”
“I’m not ze one who turn mortal vomen into rotten corpses.”
Nikolas clenched his jaw. “You’re the one who destroyed her, not me!”
Klaus opened his arms invitingly. “You vant revenge, Nikolas? Here I am! How about instead of hiding behind Elizabeth, you actually face me?”
Nikolas laughed. “As you hid behind that wretch of a woman?” Klaus lurched forward, swinging his fist but Nikolas dodged the attack as Klaus punched the wall instead. He quickly turned around, drawing his Collector blade out from its sheath. Nikolas mimicked the aggressive move. “Did I hit a nerve?”
“You vere always so bitter.”
Nikolas shrugged almost uncaringly. “Not anymore. I have my eyes on a greater prize!”
“I told you to leave Elizabeth out of zis.”
“And if I don’t? What if I don’t want to let you and Elizabeth skip off into the sunset? Why do you deserve happiness when all you’ve ever done is cause me misery?”
