Ilya sidled closer, his chest a warm wall that brushed against her arm. The warm scent of cinnamon overpowered even the delicious chicken, a sharp bite teasing her senses. Something smoky drifted just under it, not quite the bitter violence of Lee, more like the homey scent of wood smoke.

She almost leaned into it, head turning towards him to better take in his scent.

Then she heard it.

The purr was rich, a decadent sensation that flowed across her skin. It shook loose all the pain, leaving only glorious numbness in its wake. Seeping into her flesh, her very bones, melting them like chocolate in the sun. The breadth of his palm skimmed over her spine, Quinn swaying towards that incredible sound.

Tears flooded her eyes, the comfort in all that warm thunder swallowing her up. Dragging her under a languid tide as she turned her face up to his. Trying to frown, to show that this wasn’t right, Quinn could only gasp when Ilya ran his thumb over her lower lip.

“I always know what you like, kroshka.” The tip of that digit slid across her teeth, prying her mouth open a little wider until the pad of his thumb could feel the soft velvet of her tongue. “You will remember that, da?”

The preternatural calm was a lie, Devin realized. His body was poised, ready for the killing strike. It was his eyes though that showed his turmoil beyond the fixed stare. Clamping her lips into a hard line, she gave a minute shake of her head. Refusing to bare more of her soul to him.

“Despite sitting at that stupid desk, watching him destroy me a little more each day, you made it better,” she breathed, eyes widening as she willed her treacherous tongue to stop moving. “Just seeing you, even smelling you… There was hope, somewhere in all of it, and…”

“Enough.” His was a voice dragged over hot coals, wrenched from a place neither of them knew existed. A dark abyss that became more twisted, more voracious as Devin shone a glimpse of light upon it.

“You always made me feel safe.”

“And you hated my touch. Always yelling your accusations of stealing things from you, taking everything away,” he snarled against her lips. “You tried to kill both of us, to destroy all of this, and you expect me to believe I made you feel safe?”

“It scared me, Daniel.”

“And now you’re not, is that it?”

“Not of you.”

As if it had never faltered, the shimmering heat returned. It bloomed through her chest, tangling through her limbs as she struggled to work them free to return his crushing grasp. Whining low in her throat when he kept her imprisoned, she did the only thing she could. Arching her neck, she brought their lips flush. Her tongue teased at the tender flesh, begging for entry. Devin whimpered when he tore his mouth away.
