“I have no other option, specialist.”
“Then, stop arguing and wrap your arms around me. I’ll keep watch when you rest. As soon as night arrives, we’ll cross to safety.”
When he touched me, my world slowed down. My sight sharpened, and my hearing amplified. My pheromones triggered his slumber making our hearts beat as one. I now control his body as mine, can feel his fears and access his mind.
While he sleeps in my arms, he’ll sense my love. I just pray to the higher gods he accepts my embrace without many doubts.
