He continued on his way. Ahead, the shadows stirred and a figure emerged from an alcove on the opposite side of the alley. Even in silhouette, her riotous mane of wild curls was unmistakable. He hitched, caught mid-stride, his entire existence tipped off kilter. A wide, stupid smile overtook him, and he lacked even the sense to assess her as a threat. He stared at her face, not at her hands which could easily shift to claws sharp enough to rip out his beating heart. Like unwitting prey, he stood there and waited while she sashayed closer.
Her steps were quick and light; her smile slight and sly. She got close enough that her distinctive, alluring scent flooded his nostrils. He leaned in closer, drinking in her warmth, and grew intoxicated within a handful of heartbeats. Enchanted—falling into lust if not love, and damn it, but blind, stupid horniness wasn't like him at all. In the back of his mind, the voice of caution squeaked out a faint alert, however pheromones drowned it right out.
"Why did you do that?" His fox tilted back her head, gazing up at him with the brightest of emerald eyes. Her voice was husky like a lover, but vicious like an assassin.
"Do what?" Silver grew guarded, assuming she meant their whole brief but contentious history. Agitation ate at him. He had wronged her. He owed her an apology—and more.
"Help that kid after he lied to you." She gestured toward the teenagers.
"Maybe he didn't lie to me. Here you are."
"Yeah, he did. He didn't see me. And..." She snorted. "Angel wings my ass."
"I mentioned your ass, too." Silver flashed a quick grin, but she didn't return it. He sighed. "You didn't fall out of heaven?"
"Wow... Does anyone actually fall for that corny line?" Her mask slipped just a bit. Beneath her coy flirtation, his fox bristled with repressed anger. Her beautiful face set into hard lines, and her jaws clenched.
