Why me? Why do I have to be the one to bring this stubborn female to heel?
Lou walked in, flipped on the lights, and as she turned around, JT got an eyeful. From her feet in the high-heeled combat boots, right up to her spiked blonde hair, JT checked her out. The fuck-me heels, stockings, short black skirt, and pink shirt almost made him come in his pants.
“I’m here because I was ordered to be. Not my fault you weren’t here to let me in, and I had no intention of sitting outside on your doorstep like a mutt waiting for scraps.” He growled out the words, pissed, as he usually was when he was around her. Calmly, he stood up, and walked across the room, coming face to face with her. Well actually chest to face, shoving the door closed behind her. Forcing her to tilt her chin up to look at him.
“Well, take your orders, tuck that fuzzy little tail of yours between your legs and go home. I’m not part of your fucked-up bunch of deranged animals and I’m not in the Navy anymore. Orders don’t apply to me.” She shoved past him and walked into her kitchen, grabbing a beer from the fridge. After taking a few long pulls from the bottle, she turned and looked at him again where he stood leaning against the doorframe, a smirk across her face.
“You’re still here? I thought I told you to leave? Scoot. Run along home, little doggie.”
Frustrated, he growled out, “What part of ‘orders’ do you not understand? As much as it pains me, Ryden wants your help. We need someone on the inside at MedVision to get us any information that might be helpful, to be our eyes and ears. Since you’re the only one we know who works there, guess what sweetheart, you’re it.”
“Oh, dude, that is just sweet. You need someone on the inside and you come prowling at my door? Why don’t you give me one good reason why I should help you?” Eyes flashing, she crossed her arms over her ample breasts and glared at him across the room. “Let’s see, you already kidnapped me, and kept me against my will while you acted like I was invading your territory. Don’t worry big guy, I didn’t piss on any trees while I was there. Your marks are fine. You’re in my territory now and I can piss on anything I want, so piss off.” She took another swig of her beer. “I swear you may be the big bad wolf but I’m starting to think that you’re deaf and dumb. I told you both I’m no doctor. They don’t tell me shit about what goes on there.”
JT had heard enough. Having Lou challenge him was something he wasn’t used to. She never would have talked to him like that. The differences between the two women were night and day. Hard as it was to admit, it turned him on. He couldn’t help but think of what he wanted to do to that sassy mouth of hers.
3. The air was colder and damp under the cloak of the trees as she began walking through the woods. Stepping up over branches and tripping over ivy made the walk seem more like an obstacle course. She pondered whether JT set it up this way so that no one could get near his house; he seemed the type.
Just getting through a thicket, she spun around at the sound of leaves rustling, something coming quickly in her direction. The growl she heard made her heart nearly stop. It was like nothing she had ever heard before, nothing that she wanted to hear again. Turning away from the sound, she started to run but slid to a stop, falling on her ass as a large black wolf appeared in front of her.
Crawling backwards to get away, she said, “Nice dog…go find a bone. Wait, not a bone. I have skinny bones, no meat.”
The wolf’s eyes seemed to glow as he stalked towards her. This was not how she planned to spend her morning; being eaten by a wild animal. With every inch she backed away, the wolf took another step closer. It moved with her like a predator, each step placed carefully, slowly. It was as if it was enjoying making her squirm.
“I’m not afraid of you!”
It was a lie of course and she wondered if the wolf could smell her fear. She glanced quickly behind her and saw the fallen tree. She would be stopped soon, trapped. As her hand landed on a stick she wrapped her fingers around the rough cold bark, and when she went to scoot back, she quickly swung the stick at its head. Carlee squealed and she scooted back again as large jaws opened and snatched the stick from her hand before she could land the blow. She knew she was in serious trouble.
