she was defenseless against an older, experienced Elemental. I backed away from the door and took a deep breath as I closed my eyes. I could feel my aura drawing the energy from around me as I built up my strength. My muscles tensed as the extra power surged within them, and I slammed through the door, only to catch a glimpse of three men falling to the ground before I stumbled over them. I looked toward Brielle and saw her eyes glowing a pure silver, a color I'd never seen before in an Elemental's eyes. They quickly shifted back to that stunning hazel that seemed to hypnotize me. After making sure she was unharmed, I made sure that those guys would think twice about ever bothering her again. She looked at me horrified after I set them on fire. I couldn't stand to see that expression contorting her perfect features, especially because of me. She had yet to understand the dangers she was in, and the measures that needed to be taken to protect her.
That all changed when she touched me. The fire that ignited inside me was extremely intoxicating, like nothing I had ever felt before. It was like someone was dripping hot candle wax in my veins, and I felt like I was going to explode with pleasure. Brielle was feeling the same based on the blissful expression on her face. There was such desire in her eyes that I couldn't contain myself. I had to take her lips with mine, tangling my hand in her thick curls like I had fantasized about night after night.
She tasted so delicious, and I couldn't get enough of her sweet tongue on mine. Then it ended, way too soon, with Kimber reminding us that we needed to get Brielle safe back at home. I would have more of her deliciousness later, hopefully without any interruptions.
I hated how she was so confused about everything. She knew nothing about our race's history, so I felt terrible having to throw so much information on her at one time. Especially the part where we needed each other to survive. She took it better than I had expected, looking at me with such trust that I prayed I wouldn't let her down. She needed me, and I realized that I needed her as well.
On the boat ride back to Avalon, I wondered what her father would say when I walked in the door with Brielle and Kimber. It seemed that he didn't want to accept that Brie was an Elemental, or that she was the One. So how would he feel about me walking in saying I was her twin flame?
Brielle cuddled up to my side, and everywhere that her skin touched mine tingled. I wondered if it would stay like that forever since my parents never mentioned it before. I cupped her face in my hands and tilted it up to mine. The moonlight reflected off her eyes, causing them to shine with a heavenly light. God, she was beautiful, and she was all mine. She closed her eyes, anticipating my kiss, as I slowly dropped my lips to hers. I felt the warmth swirling excitedly inside me as we reconnected, though not as strong as before. I parted her mouth with my tongue, seeking permission to deepen the kiss. She answered by taking my tongue and entangling it with hers. She ran her fingers through my hair before tugging on it when she reached the back of my head, quietly moaning with pleasure. My hormones went into overdrive, and I wanted to take her, all of her, right at that moment, but once again, we were interrupted by Kimber.
“What is with you two? Can't you keep your hands off each other for five seconds?!” she asked incredulously.
Brielle furiously blushed, her cheeks becoming stained a bright pink as she bit her bottom lip. Now that I wasn't consumed in her lips, something didn't feel right. Brielle straightened like she felt something too. I looked at Kimber, who was still driving the boat, “Do you feel something, Kimber?”
“Yeah, and I don't like it, either.”
In the distance, I could hear the sound of speedboats, at least three of them. Kimber sped up as she yelled, “I think you should drive, Jace. This is my territory, after all, and I
