He cringed as he crept closer to the blaze. As quick as he could manage, he reached for the wrist of the pale hand and tugged. His breath caught in his throat as a blonde woman dressed in a flight suit slid along the mud. He had a funny feeling it wasn’t from the smoke drifting over him. He didn’t get out much and it had been a very long time since he laid eyes on someone so beautiful.
He shook the thought out of his mind and scooped her over his shoulder. He stumbled his way through the muck to safety. He drooped her on the first downed tree he came too. There sure as hell wasn’t any reason to haul a dead body everywhere and he didn’t need the feds hunting him down if she were. He’d leave the corpse behind.
He shivered as he touched her cheek. He could feel his boxers tent with his sudden erection. Then his heart leaped in his chest.
“Fuck, she’s alive. How did she survive that?” he muttered to himself. He glanced back at the engulfed jet glowing in the distance. He knew his true nature. He was used to bizarre things. But this was one hundred percent impossible.
He carefully lifted her in his arms and cradled her close to him. He took his porch steps two at a time then threw the door open with the bump of his hip. She moaned as he laid her on the couch.
He stared at her as he rubbed his chin. Something primal and ancient burned deep in his soul. It demanded that he claim her, that he not let her free until she was bound to him for eternity.
He growled then stormed to the kitchen. This unexplained urge was forcing him to do something he swore he would never do. He picked up the phone book and shuffled through the brittle pages until he reached the listings for the United States government. He picked up the handset of the rotary phone and dialed. It was time to get his woman out of his house and as far away from him as possible.
