She was dreaming of him again.
It was more than a dream--she knew that, even if she didn't want to acknowledge it.
Jenai stood at a window, staring out over a green field. She didn't know where she was. She hadn't ever been there, but she knew why she was there.
He had taken her there.
"Actually, I just wanted to be with you again. I don't know how we ended up here."
Turning away from the window, she met his eyes from across the room. "And where is here?" she asked levelly, even though just the sight of him was enough to make her all hot and itchy inside.
He grinned, his white teeth flashing in the darkness of his face. "Home. My home. Scotland. It's been years since I came here ... Someday, I'll show it to you, for real. Not just in dreams."
Jenai laughed, the sound cold and brittle in the room. "Dreams are all that we have between us, sugar."
He shrugged. "If you want to continue thinking that, I won't stop you." His eyes, dark blue--like the eastern sky at twilight--gleamed at her as he took first one step and then another in her direction. "I've got better things to do--since our time here is always short."
Jenai sidestepped him as he tried to move closer, shaking her head. "I'm waking up now."
He growled at her, his eyes narrowing as he rasped, "Don't do that again, pet. I need you--you need me."
"You are just a dream!" she shouted, fisting her hands at her sides, her entire body trembling with rage.
She had forgotten how quickly he could move. Whether it was a way he had of manipulating her mind in the dreams, or if he was actually that fast, she didn't know. But Jenai couldn't evade him this time. He caught her up against him, cradling the back of her head in one hand, while the other went to her hip and drew her against his pelvis. Through the thin silk that covered her body, she could feel his heat, so warm, so beguiling.
Her body reacted even as she tried to make herself move away. "This isn't real," she said shakily.
"Yes, it is," he whispered, lowering his head and scraping his teeth across her neck. "You are real. I am real. We are real ... and so is what I feel for you."
His mouth covered hers and, as he pushed his tongue past the barrier of her lips, Jenai groaned. His mind touched hers and she shivered as he whispered inside her mind, This is real, pet.
She didn't like this. Didn't like some dream man who probably didn't exist having so much power over her. Didn't like being so weak around him.
You aren't weak. And I do exist, he murmured to her, still talking along the mind paths. He drew back and Jenai whimpered at the loss of his mouth on hers. "Let me show you ... Tell me where to find you."
