EXCERPT 2: Friend or Foe

“What’s stopping me from slitting both of your throats now and ridding the world of creatures like you and those who aid them?”
I gritted my teeth. All previous curiosity morphed to anger and a desperate need to protect Aidan. “I’d like to see you try.”
His scowl turned feral. “What can you do to me, love? You’re naked and unless you’re hiding a weapon in all that hair, there’s nothing you could do to stop me.”
Rolling my shoulders back, I stood to my full height, the top of my head still only reaching his nose. “I don’t need a weapon. I am one.”
He laughed, shaking his head. “Really? Somehow I don’t think so, love.”
Before I could say anything, my hair lashed out and wrapped around his throat, gently squeezing. His eyes widened with surprise, then narrowed. He inhaled and our gazes burned into each other until his scowl disappeared. He slowly swiped his tongue across his lower lip, then grinned. “I like you.”
