A Peek Inside The Dead Game

A peek inside The Dead Game

Slowly his mouth lowered onto hers, drawing her into a swirling miasma of unexpected feelings and desires.  His mouth fully covering hers introduced her to a new realm of pure pleasure.  His powerful form enveloped her, making her feel feelings that were foreign and untried for her.  She couldn’t get enough of him.  She tentatively began touching his face and then his body with an eager and unrelenting hunger.  She didn’t know exactly what she needed, but she knew that she wanted and desired this beautiful man standing right before her.  Her past life was washed completely out of her mind, never to be considered again.  She begged him to take her with him tonight.  In response, Wolf lifted her in his arms—as if she weighed nothing—and turned to leave the party.  His beautiful face looked victorious and happy.  His black eyes filled with passion.  She hoped that it was because of her.  Then he looked down into her small face and gave a hearty roar.

While Wolf carried her in his powerful arms, a dark shadow swooped out of the house and flew directly at them.  Linda was knocked out of his strong grasp, while Wolf was thrown across the patio.

She looked up to see who had attacked them.  It was Todd, his eyes a deadly shade of green, standing there panting.

Linda backed away in horror.  His eyes clearing, Todd looked beseechingly at her.  “Don’t ever be afraid of me!  I’m here to protect you!”

Then he was struck down by Wolf.
