He turned and smiled down at Abby. Her beauty would steal his heart, if he even had one worth stealing. “Well, it’s an Imp, they aren’t very high up on the demonic food chain. I’m really looking for something a lot more special with amazing beauty and uniqueness. Not unlike yourself.” His hand came up and brushed along the side of her cheek.
Her eyes closed and her face nuzzled against his hand, a gentle smile spreading across her lips. “Laird asked me to come down here and show you what he has to offer.”
“Did he now? Well, I guess I’m luckier than I thought.” He held out his hand for her to take. If he was going to walk beside a beautiful woman, then he was going to touch her in any way he could.
She glanced down at his large, outstretched hand, contemplating whether or not she should take it. After all, he was a guest, and obviously foreign. Perhaps it was customary for guests to hold hands in his country. Okay, she was grasping at straws, but any excuse she had to touch this magnificent man, she was surely going to take. She placed her small hand into his and they began walking the long length of storage.
As they walked hand in hand, it became apparent he was looking for something specific.
“So, Roth, that’s an unusual first name?”
“My actual name is Astaroth, but it’s a mouthful, so I go by Roth.”
“Astaroth, as in a prince of Hell coming forth in the shape of a fouled angel, sitting upon an infernal dragon, carrying a viper in his right hand?” She smiled up at him and gave a curt laugh as she spoke. Who would name their child Astaroth? How odd.
“I haven’t actually ridden a dragon in years, but that’s me.”
She had to laugh at his statement. “Oh, really?” She stopped and pulled back, yet didn’t release his hand to look him up and down.
“Are you saying I don’t look like a prince of Hell?” He looked down at his casual jeans, boots, and black t-shirt. Not exactly the attire of royalty, but showing up with a crown made of human bones would probably scare her off, and that was the last thing he wanted to do.
She stood on her tiptoes and ran her hand along the scruff on his face. “Hmm, I’ll give you the devilish good looks and charm, that’s for sure.”
His hand came up and covered hers. “Is that all you’ll give me?”
His words sent a flood of heat to her belly and a tingle of anticipation between her legs. There was no denying his meaning as he spoke to her. He wanted much more than to just hold her hand. The moment seemed to last an eternity as they silently stared into each other’s eyes, neither wanting to be the first to break contact.
Neither one could answer the question, but the answer was the same for both of them. Each would give the other anything they could ever want, all either had to do was ask, and there would be no turning back.
Their moment was interrupted by the sound of footsteps coming down the long aisle they were standing in. Abby knew it was Laird; he had a very distinct and powerful walk. She tried to pull away, fearful her husband would find them in a near embrace, but Roth pulled her in closer. So close, their bodies were now flush from chest to knee.
“When can I see you again?” His voice was barely above a whisper, nothing that would ever be overheard, especially by human ears.
“You can’t, I’m sorry.”
