But onto the snippet, because I know that’s what we’re all here for!
The exhaustion that had plagued her for so long now dug its ragged claws into her, making her weak, breathless as she fought for a single inch of reprieve. Mind struggling to sift through what was her and what was not, her panic flared and shrieked, a wailing explosion in a night dark sky.
She didn’t want to feel this.
Tobias gave her no mercy, invading her with single minded determination. Chocolate and chilies simmered under her skin, torrents of heat blasting through her veins. He grunted above her. Hands tightening, he tried to push closer as if he could take her inside of him, making them one.
A sound reminiscent of a groan filtered through the chaos clamoring around her skull. Uncertain which of them had made the noise, she could do little more than cling to him as sensations bombarded her. Too much to take in, not enough to make any sense of. Pain, regret, sorrow, betrayal. It blasted through her thoughts, obliterating everything.
Destroying her one thudding heartbeat at a time.
Something splintered and cracked, shattering from the constant abuse. Soundless as it ripped her apart, slicing her open and laying her bare and vulnerable to the beast lurking inside and out. Thick tears dripped from her lashes, trickling down her temples to stain her hair dark and glossy.
A breath filled her lungs. Long and deep, it was clean and crisp, as if she breathed fresh air for the first time in her life. It shuddered through her, filling her up with a warmth she had never known under her own control. Something only he could incite, the thing he did to her when he broke her to his will.
Yet her thoughts were her own. She felt him there, deep inside, touching a part of her he had no right to, but she wasn’t struggling against the sunlit agony.
The bond was not quiet, but for once it did not hurt.
