Dar was gritting his teeth. She was lightly stroking the inside of his thigh. As if applying a healing touch to the red-marks on his leg. But even the lightest of touches was like an intense burning on his skin. A searing torch held to him at the tops of his legs.
She ignored his curses. “Gets the blood racing. Every emotion is heightened.” Her pause was for effect. “Every pain intensified.”
She stared dispassionately into his bewildered and angry face.
“Sex would be mind-blowing …….” For a moment she hesitated. At the look of shock that lashed across his face. As if she struck him with the back of her hand. At the idea of sex like this …….
Dar saw her gaze greedily sweep over his torso. Even her gaze on his muscled belly .. even just the way her eyes lingered on his protruding muscular chest .. his flesh trembled. She wasn’t touching the bunched muscle of his shoulder .. but just the feel of her look on him there .. it had his skin shivering. Not with pleasure .. far from it. Shivering with .. dread? Like her exploratory gaze could transmit. A nervousness crunched tight in his belly.
Fighting back, he seethed at the look of triumph as she grinned into his face. Jaw tight-clenched against the growing intensity of emotions sizzling in his flesh. Not pleasant. Decidedly uncomfortable. Edgy. Not the least because .. unaccountably he was hard-as-hell between the legs. But from nothing. Not with the joy of coupling .. no stroking .. no lips on him there. But … taut. Throbbing. Stiff almost to breaking point.
“But, of course …..” she concluded “ …… passion won’t come in to it ………”
Dar was jittery. Her felt nervous. He didn’t understand these feelings. Some kind of magic had come over him. He feared where she was going with him. His body had left his own control. The damned sorceress had drugged him! Taking control away. No longer master of his body. Victim to her. Lost control over what was happening to him.
And when she started to make use of his lack of control ……? That thought made him nervy. The consequences scared him. A lot.
