Fuck, that had been way too close. If he’d lost her…Gabe pulled her closer, inhaling deeply of her sweet scent, as Lissa wrapped herself around him, as though she too never wanted to let him go. Shivers still wracked her body, remnants of the terror she’d witnessed, the horror he’d pulled her away from.
Stone ran ahead, yanked open the car door, and Gabe had never been so grateful for the quick actions of his team, as the doors locked and the SUV speeded them off to safety.
“No, I don’t. Please no.”
Lissa hung on tighter, her tears wetting his shoulder when he tried to slide her off his lap.
“Please don’t let me go. Don’t ever let me go.”
Gabe’s cold heart splintered into a thousand pieces at the desperation in her voice. Swallowing hard against the emotion clogging his throat, he somehow managed to force out words.
“Shh, it’s okay, baby girl. I’ve got you. You’re safe now. Those bastards will never touch you again.” He pulled her tighter, his hands exploring her curves to reassure himself that she was indeed unharmed, that he hadn’t been too late.
Her sobs eventually stopped.
“I knew you’d kill them.”
Hope you enjoyed my tease today.
Do stay naughty!
