Ancient Blood

A movement under the trees caught her gaze. The black wolf appeared, his golden eyes reflecting the porch light as he crossed the yard. The promised rain pattered down, silencing his approach until his wet paws thudded on the steps.

She was safe. She dropped to her knees. Without conscious thought, she laid her head on his furred shoulder and cried.

For the first time since the stalker found her, she let herself go. Her nose was clogged and her eyes swollen before she realized his arms were around her, her face against his chest. His hand stroked her spine gently as he murmured soothing words.

“I’m so sorry,” she mumbled. “I didn’t mean to fall apart.” Unable to resist, she kissed the heated skin under her mouth. A low growl rumbled from deep in his chest.
