She heard Crag snickering somewhere behind her. She turned and splashed at him too.
“I would have saved you. If you’d quit splashing and stand up, you’ll see you could stand.”
Ari frowned suddenly. “Oh no. You can’t stand with your leg.” He started toward her and Hope
pushed deeper into the water.
“Leave me be.” She began treading water, deep enough that she didn’t have to put weight on her leg. Ignoring both of them, she sank under water to get her hair out of her face. When she popped out Hope screamed. Ari was right there, grinning at her. “What the heck?”
“I was just making sure you were okay.” His eyes twinkling at her.
No way was she falling for that, no matter how attractive it made him.
“And I brought you the soap. How will you get clean without it?”
“Fine. Give me the soap.”
Ari held it back out of her reach.
“No. You’ll drop it out here.”
Hope growled at him. Yes, she sure did. Hope didn’t know quite how to take his teasing, if
he was teasing.
Ari laughed. “You can come in closer and I’ll help hold you while you wash or I can wash
you here while you float.”
Hope didn’t answer, but she swam in closer to shore. No way was she letting him run his
hands all over her.
Ari pulled Hope against him.
Hope gasped at the feel of his body against hers.
He ran a hand down, from her hips to her bottom, sliding a hand over her curves. His large
hand cupped her cheek and his fingers slid, touching her heat. His calloused fingers were right
there, coated with the moisture he drew from her.
Hope cried out while Ari teased her with the tip of his finger.
“Oh.” Hope moaned. “You shouldn’t. You should stop.”
Hope drowned in the sensation. She tilted her hips, unconsciously asking for more.
Ari slid a finger in, stroking her softly. The glide of his finger, rough and calloused, called
more moisture from her.
Her pussy tightened on his finger, swollen and slick. Her womb clenching in desire. Hope’s
nipples tightened into hard buds, but all her concentration was on the sensation Ari drew from
Ari shifted, positioning Hope against his shaft, rubbing against the bundle of nerves she
didn’t know she had.
She strained toward him, moisture coating his shaft from her cunt.
His finger seated inside her sent her spiraling.
Hope cried out, the sensations bursting inside of her.
“Oh!” Her head fell against his chest.
Ari slowly withdrew his hand from her body.
Hope shuddered. “What did you do to me?”
Ari held her tight; his turgid erection throbbed against her. Hope wrapped her arms around
his waist, content to stand in his arms feeling bewildered yet sated.
Male dragon, black scales tipped with blue and golden eyes. When he changes Ari has black hair, golden eyes and stocky muscular body that he doesn’t mind showing off.

She is fearless and has no problem rescuing herself. She loves to play though she hasn’t had a lot of that in her life as her family focuses on survival. Family is all important to her.
