Remember that light in the tunnel I told you about a couple of posts ago? Well it’s getting brighter! WooHoo!
That being said…I thought I’d share another unedited snippet from The Veiled Path to Destiny~The Veil Book 2, with you.
“I love the reaction your body has when I pay attention to that particular spot.” Iauron whispered in her ear, his hands skimming up the sides of her torso to cup her breasts. His thumbs brushed across swollen peaks of her nipples pushing at the cloth of her shirt. “Now this is a glorious sight.” She gasped as his fingers and thumb tweaked the sensitive buds only to release them and take a step back.
An incredulous expression across her features, Daria spun around to face Iauron. “Where are you going?”
A knowing smirk curved the corners of his mouth. A teasing gleam shimmered in his blue eyes. “Exploring of course.” Holding a hand out to her, he started walking backwards. “Are you coming?’
Daria glared at Iauron. The amusement radiating off of him had her gritting her teeth. “Fine.” She grumbled, bending down to pick up her discarded sweater.
“Leave it.” Iauron uttered, stalling her reach.
“I might need it if it gets cold.” She argued.
“I promise to keep you warm should you catch a chill.”
Daria walked towards him. “I’m going to hold you to that promise.” Daria warned, placing her much smaller hand onto his.
Iauron raised her hand to his mouth, “Trust me to see to your every need, mo chroí.” He beseeched her, brushing the back of her fingers with his lips. Tucking her hand into the crook of his arm, he winked at her. “Come, lass. We have much to see and much to do.”
“You’re awfully bossy, you do know that, right?” Daria asked, falling into step with him.
“Consider it one of the perks of being King.”
She shook her head. “Tell me another perk.”
Continuing to hold her hand against his arm and walk, Iauron looked down at her. All joviality left his face. “Claiming you as my Queen once again.”
Feeling the flush heat up her cheeks, Daria tore her gaze from his soul piercing one and scraped her teeth across her bottom lip. “I don’t know what say to that.” She confessed.
Iauron halted their walk an stood in front of her. Lifting her chin with his free hand, he pressed his lips to her forehead. “Fret not about a responding, little one.” He replaced his lips on her brow with his forehead, and stared into her eyes. “It is but a truth that needs neither acknowledgment nor a response. It just simply is.”
