She’s been given to me to protect. To mate with. To help repopulate our planet after the red aliens released the bioweapon that killed all the females of our species.
She trembles with fear every time I come close.
I don’t mean to frighten her. Yet my inner dragon lurks near the surface. I’m half-warrior, half-animal.
I lost myself long ago to the shadows when my enemies ripped away those that I loved.
I’ve promised to keep her safe, yet my mission for revenge burns within me. How can I care for her when darkness calls my name?
I’m afraid I can’t control my beast.
My blood simmers in my veins. My dragon claws at his restraints, hot and volatile.
He’s ready to be unleashed.
The red aliens will meet my wrath.
I will hunt them down. Every single one of them.
