"Unless you pin her down," Drew added, raising his hand. "Then, she bites. Hard. Think I still have a scar to prove it even."
When the Shade turned his gaze on Erica, she met it evenly and smiled. It was clear that she knew what he was and had no issues with it. Indeed, her posture and facial expression seemed welcoming. Not only did she not mind his presence; she seemed even a little interested in working with him.
Drew on the other hand met the Shade's gaze and saw a challenge. He raised his chin slightly, as if to prove he wouldn't back down from anything, and his grin turned slightly menacing. While it wasn't likely he'd actively do anything to harm the Shade, his posture suggested he also wasn't likely to go easy on him.
