Unforgettable Lovers Project POV (point of view) – What makes someone an unforgettable lover?
Dr. Torin DuMont from “Dark Sentinels Book Two: Torin”
I’m probably the last person to ask about love, lovers, or anything remotely related. I’ve got some major trust issues, but somehow this cute, harmless looking little human female wrapped herself around me before I even knew what was happening.
It started with her soft, lilting voice. I hadn’t even seen her yet, but I could hear her through the wall, and her voice had a soothing effect. I’m usually not too interested in people, but I wanted to see the owner of that voice. Next thing I know, this sassy little thing is standing in front of me, an irresistible scent of mint, lemongrass, and lilies reeling me in, making me want to hold her close and inhale.
Of course I said something to put her on edge and the fire in those deep brown eyes caught me by surprise. She was suddenly across the room yelling for me to get out. I don’t get taken by surprise often. I read people pretty well, and they don’t stray too far from my expectations. Control is important to me, but I lost it with Steph.
A few minutes later, I went from sitting in my truck wondering what the hell I’d said, to shifting in furious rage to protect her. I killed two people that night. Killing isn’t so unusual for me, but the way I did it, without thinking about the consequences, for a virtual stranger, that means something.
I tried to ignore it, but I knew then that Stephanie Bates would not be easily forgotten. I still don’t know what I said to piss her off when we first met, but the better I get to know her, I’m starting to believe she might really care for me. As for me, I know I’d protect her with my life.
