He stared at the simple profile he’d written for the dragon/demon shifter months ago. It stated little more than the basics of the creature: height, eye color, hair color, body build, favorite flavor, drink, cologne.
And of course, his weapon expertise and the names he used to disguise himself. Contrary to what many believed, Adrian was no mere mortal. He was more, much more. The man with a gun always tucked inside his perennial leather jacket was the best in his line of work: bounty hunting. He’d dealt with all matter of creatures in his more than 150 years. The only race he hadn’t hunted were humans. Until now. The elderly man rubbed his jaw and broke into a grin. Even he was surprised at the intensity of the shifter’s feelings. He knew the connection would be strong but he never predicted for the man with the wry sense of humor and a natural distrust of people to fall so easily and so hard for the girl. He’d lost his family as a child and his mentor as an adolescent and yet, even as he told the young woman to keep away from him, he kept returning to her.
He hadn’t missed the way Adrian smiled when he hugged her close, the way he watched her or the way he touched her. Adrian Ormonde was considerate around the girl. He was tender, gentle, caring. The Warlock grinned, snapping the book shut. In all his years of watching the demon/dragon shifter, he’d never seen him act like that, so mindful of the well-being and feelings of another. He was still rough, a bad ass with an attitude but around her he changed. Pulling back his chair, the man stood and snuffed the candle at his desk. The best part was that the hybrid shifter wasn’t even aware of the change inside him. He adduced his feelings to the natural lust of his demon and the natural instinct of protection of his dragon.
Striding out of the room, the Warlock fought the bubble of laughter threatening to escape him. Incredible. A dragon/demon shifter with feelings. He chuckled. The legendary bounty hunter exceeded his expectations and he couldn’t wait to see how things would play out in the grand scheme of things.
Adrian shuddered. His green eyes narrowed as he searched his surroundings for any sign of danger. Everything seemed at peace. The starry sky was clear and the moon bright as it reflected over the body of water quietly lapping against the shore. Behind him, the house was quiet. Yet, he'd felt something. Uneasy, he decided to go back inside to check on the girl. Just in case. He slipped past the kitchen and into the living room, making sure to keep to the shadows. There she was, fast asleep. Her face was peaceful, her lips partly opened as she took even breathes. Adrian's heart pumped hard, the dragon inside him jolting to life at the sight of the girl. His fingers itched to run over that porcelain skin, to feel it's smooth surface against his calloused pads once more.
His breath caught and he hid further into the shadows as Victoria moved, kicking back the duvet. A prickling sensation rushed through him and landed hard between his legs as her naked thigh came into view: his demon was wide awake. Biting down on his lip, Adrian stifled a groan. He wanted to do much more than just touch.
Running his fingers through his hair he remained still, watching her. He knew he should go, yet he couldn't tear his eyes from the woman sleeping on his couch. Taking a deep breathe he drank in her fragrance. His eyes closed of their own volition. Vanilla. A sweet and intoxicating smell. It fit her. Adrian smirked. But there was more in the air than her sweet scent. Sex and his own fragrance permeated the air. His cock twitched, his demon hungry for another taste of her. His dragon twisted, squeezing his heart as he recalled their lovemaking. It had been intense, passionate yet gentle. Opening his eyes, Adrian glanced at Victoria one final time before heading back to the bitter cold. Rubbing his temple, he stared off into the distance, waiting for the first ray of sunlight to show and trying not to think of Victoria. There were too many questions that needed answering but first they had to find a safer place.
