The Four Kingdoms by Sierra N. Terry Book Tour and Giveaway :)
Nonetheless, someone needs help and as a knight, he's there to protect and serve so he must go investigate what the problem is. He quietly jogs through the trees towards where the scream came from and as he drew closer to the spot, he can hear more people talking and grunting in agitation. In a clearing in front of a large clear lake Jonas spots the disturbance: two men have gotten ahold of a young woman. One holds her on the ground and the other is trying to get a good grip on her legs to pry them apart. The man at her legs is largely unsuccessful since the woman is thrashing so hard under him, he can't get a good grip. "What are you doing?? Hurry up and get her legs open!!" The man holding her arms down yells at the other. "Can't you see I'm trying?! This bitch won't quit!" Suddenly one of the woman's legs hits the man in the face and he topples backward, blood quickly staining his lips. Jonas is impressed, her legs are nice to look at AND strong. "Hey, you there!! Let her go!!" Jonas yells out as he reveals himself and rushes towards the scene. The one man that was kicked is holding his nose in pain still and the other isn't doing a lot better. Jonas didn't see how it happened, but suddenly, the woman's thick hair is wrapped around the man's head and now he's screaming and trying desperately to get it off.
Jonas is amazed, he'd never seen such a color on a lady or anyone else. It's mostly a blueish green then changes to a shade of purple at the tips. Even with this strange color, it's still stunning. No, it's because of its color it's stunning. Her whole body looks like it's glistening in the moonlight, even her clothes. She wears a short top that showed off her nicely toned stomach and her long skirt has just as long slits on both sides, leaving nothing to the imagination with her legs. Jonas gulps. Those legs are looking more and more tempting the longer he looks at them. He just wanted to touch them, maybe rub them for a moment but after what he just saved her from, she probably wouldn't appreciate that. Suddenly, she appears to remember Jonas' presence and the unconscious man, then bolts upright, shoving her body out of Jonas' reach. "It's okay miss! I won't hurt you, I'm here to help!" He tries to calm her, but she scrambles to her feet to run anyway. Her footing is off, her legs wobble and she begins to fall face first back to the ground. Jonas rushes to her and catches the woman before she hits the ground. Her body is light and incredibly soft to touch. If she let him hold her longer, he'd gladly do it all night. With her so close to him he can take in her amazing scent: honeydew mixed with the ocean breeze. She reminds him of the sea in the early morning and good thing for him he loves the sea. "Please, don't!" She finally says to him. She stares up at him, terror in her soft eyes. Her pink colored soft eyes. There's no doubt in his mind now, this woman can't be human. "I told you, I'm not going to hurt you! You're safe. Are you feeling ok?" Jonas feels he must ask that last question. She was doing just fine earlier, thrashing and kicking her legs at her attackers but now she seems weak and tired like all her energy was drained at once. This beautiful woman is even shaking in his arms and Jonas has, at this moment, no other wants but to calm her and make her feel safe again. "No! Let me go! I need to be in the water!!" She yells at him, shaking her head. Her hair brushes against his face and it feels like silk. "The water? OK, ok, I'll put you in the lake." Jonas slips his other arm under her legs and thanked the Gods in his mind that he got a chance to touch them without appearing creepy.
