Sequel to Marcus and Leon.
I'm a hunter.
I'm ruthless. I'm a warrior. I'm a leader.
But he bombards my life promising me forever and love, swearing his soul to me.
I am a hunter.
He is a wolf.
If I give in, I'm giving up everything I've worked for in my 16 years of life.
But I can no longer deny how I feel.
"I know what this means," He starts, gently smoothing back my hair, waiting for me to protest. I can't even conjure up a mere scowl. "I know that this will change how the others see you. How you see yourself."
My stomach sinks. It's true. It would be so difficult to get past this.
"So I'm not going to be selfish. I'm not going to manipulate the situation. Go back, Hanna. Go back to your team and family and friends. Like you said once before, there's nothing for me here."
With that, Leon goes to move away. He removes his hands from my face, each fingertip weakening my resolve in a matter of moments. He's no longer touching me.
He tries to take a step back, but it's one step too many for me. I want him near.
I reach out, grasping his wrist and basking in the adrenaline that rushes through me, I step forward to meet him, his shock is evident on his face.
"I know who I am, now," I whisper and pull his face to mine.
