As the shape came closer, she realized it wasn’t Bigfoot because he doesn’t exist she reminded herself. It was also not a bear. Her vision finally focused on a large gray horse. Not only a horse, but a rider, too.
The clouds in the night sky dissipated, allowing the moonlight to shine down into the woods. Kayla’s heart skipped a beat as the two towered over her.
The man sat upon the horse like a warrior of olden days. Long, dark hair fluttered about his face in the wind, sharp, high cheekbones, a smooth, square jawline, and thick, dark brows pressed down over a pair of deep, warm brown eyes.
His voice rumbled over her like a warm blanket. What she wouldn’t give for a warm blanket right now.
‘Do you need some help?’
She hesitated at his question, staring into his eyes. They looked so kind and trusting, but a man’s eyes had deceived her before. Until two days ago, David’s eyes had always been normal; sure, the guy had given off the jerkwad vibe at times, but she never suspected the evil hidden behind those eyes. Was this man the same? Could she trust those eyes?
Did she really have a choice?
No. She had no idea where she was and was literally freezing. Yes, she needed help. The only question, would this man be her salvation or her downfall?
