Teaser Tuesday (37)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Jessica Rules the Dark Side (Jessica, #2)
"Antanasia, we both know that the law is clear. I will be detained. And although you are growing into your role"-Yeah, right-"you will need protection," he said. "More than Emilian can offer." His gaze flicked to Raniero, who was slouching, hands in his pockets again. "I trust Raniero to watch over you."
     I was terrified at the thought that Lucius might actually be jailed. But as I looked at Raniero, I almost laughed. He was going to guard me? Because he was less terrible than the taco on his shirt.
     Then I thought of the retired stake, and my eyes tried to trace his strange tattoos in the gloom. There was something there... and maybe some method to Lucius's madness.
