Jebediah backed up. “She‟s my sister and my responsibility, Jack. ” He almost sounded conciliatory. “I already raked her over the coals. ” Jack‟s tone said to drop it. Briony sank down onto the edge of the bed and looked up at her brother. “I‟m sorry. I needed to breathe. I couldn‟t stay here surrounded by all the people… ” Jack‟s arm snaked out fast, his fingers settling around her wrist. “Don‟t apologize. You‟re not an anchor.
