How to explain he felt compelled to help her? She’d asked before why he’d sought her out. He simply had no choice. He was meant to be by her side. As terrifying as it sounded.
“I don’t want to see you get hurt.”
“Why?” she asked. “We’ve only barely met.”
“I want to get to know you.”

“If I were, I would have killed you by now.”
“Maybe you’re toying with me?” She arched a brow.
He smiled. “Do I look like the type who would tease you mercilessly?” He purred it and her lips parted.
“I think you’re dangerous.”
“You’d be right. Shift.”
“What?” She exhaled in startlement.
“Show me who you truly are, or I am going to kiss you.”
