Sorry I missed last week everyone! It was a tough week, but here is the next installment in Luke and Aurora’s story! Hope you enjoy it!!!
I’m not going anywhere. That was what he had said and now she was wondering whether she wanted him gone. She couldn’t help but wonder what was happening. What is he? Did I fall and hit my head and wake up in some crazy paranormal world?
She didn’t feel any different. Her apartment looked exactly the same. She felt her head for any kind of bump, but came up empty. Pinching herself, she winced. Nope, not a dream.
A noise startled her from her musings and she looked up. Luke was standing there in low slung jeans without a shirt. His chiseled abs were on full display and she couldn’t stop herself from running her eyes up and down his body appreciatively. He cleared his throat, it sounded more like a soft chuckle than anything else. Her eyes snapped to his and the smile on his face was almost feral.
“Like what you see, darlin’?” he chuckled.
The deep timber of his voice shot straight through her bones. This man, or whatever he is, is dangerous.
“I-I can’t,’ she stuttered. “I can’t do this. I have no idea what’s going on. You need to leave.”
The look on his face morphed into shock as he stepped closer to where she was sitting up in the bed.
“Well, that could be a problem for me,’ he said through clenched teeth. He looked as if he was warring with himself. Every minute in his presence was scaring her more and more. She didn’t know who this man was. She knew nothing about him or his mental state.
“You’re in danger. I can’t leave you here,” he grated and seemed to relax.
The crash that rent the air startled her and she jumped. Mason came barreling into her bedroom brandishing a gun with a savage look on his face.
“Mason? What the hell?” She said shocked cowering in the corner.
Luke shifted into a fighting stance and placed his big body between her and Mason. The low rumbling growl coming from his throat was terrifying.
“So I guess your dog finally showed you his true self,” Mason sneered.
“What? You knew?” Aurora asked, confused.
“Yes, of course I knew. Why do you think I was trying to get you to get rid of him? He’s going to ruin all my plans.”
“Just go Mason she made her choice,” Luke growled.
“Has she now? To me it looked like she was getting ready to give you the boot.” Mason’s laugh was grating and evil. She was wondering how she ever dated him in the first place.
Leave, Mason,” she said in a shaky whisper. She wished like hell it would have been strong and determined, but she couldn’t muster up the courage with two vicious looking creatures in such a small space.
Mason held up the gun and she flinched. She had never been that close to a gun before and she didn’t like it one bit. Closing her eyes she waited for something…anything, but nothing happened. She looked up and Luke was standing there fuming. She knew instinctively that he wouldn’t let Mason hurt her. She didn’t know how she knew she just did.
“Click, click, bang,” Mason said and pulled the trigger.
