It was a nice thought and again I let myself imagine having something as perfect as her. What would that be like? Just the thought had a sweet warmth rushing through me and I took her hand in mine again.
I honest to fuck had no idea what was happening to me. I tried recalling all the shit my brothers had griped about in the beginning of their relationships, but nothing would come.
I was on my own with this one and it scared the shit out of me. I focused instead on the here and now. On keeping her safe. I’ll deal with whatever else comes next when my mind wasn’t pulling me in a hundred directions at once.
When the plane landed I waited for the others to file off leaving just Quinn in the cabin with us.
“I’ll carry her don’t wake her up.” He smirked and held his hands up in surrender as he backed away. Ass!
I carried her from the plane to the waiting car and she still didn’t wake up. I caught myself before I buried my nose in her hair as I held her close to my chest.
My brothers kept giving me questioning looks which I ignored, I had some of my own. But they’ll have to wait. Right now I was more interested in her story and why she didn’t seem to exist anywhere.
Once we got back to the grounds I didn’t know what to do. The right thing would be to take her to the mansion to one of the many rooms there, but I didn’t want to let her out of my sight, I wasn’t ready.
Not until I knew what the hell was going on here. At least that’s the excuse I gave myself when I realized I actively couldn’t let her go.
“I’m taking her with me.” I dared them to say anything with a glare. No one said shit to me as I turned and headed to my little cottage, but I could feel their eyes on me as I walked away.
There was only one bedroom in the cottage so I decided to give her the bed and take the couch in the living room.
Quinn who’d followed us dropped her stuff off at the door while I carried her inside. “You need any help?”
“Get the fuck outta here Quinn.” The ass grinned and left.
In the bedroom I laid her on the bed and stood back just looking down at her. I was finally able to breathe a little easier now that she was safe.
She was a tiny little thing. It would be so easy to…No Devon. In all these years I’ve never given any thought to hurting a woman.
It just wasn’t something I had to think about because I’d never come close to finding anyone I wanted for more than a couple hours of bed play.
So why, why did she make me question myself? Why were all these feelings awakening in me now? I was afraid I knew the answer, but it was too dangerous.
