Liza & The Dragon
~ SHORT SEDUCTIONS | STORY 5 ~
Tyson stood from the bench and slowly walked across the room. Liza wasn’t sure if she should try to escape or stand up and prepare for some sort of battle. Instead she remained behind the couch, mesmerized by the way the dragon tattoo moved across his skin and the beautiful deep purple color of its scales.
The iridescent colors were magnificent and like nothing she’d ever seen in a tattoo. The tattoo had always been black before, but now with each movement flashes of green, blue, and gold showed within the purple.
It was as if an animal lived on the plane of Tyson’s skin.
As he came closer, Liza’s grip on the couch tightened until her fingers hurt.
“Don’t be afraid.” He knelt on the cushion before her. “You’ve always known I was a dragon. I told you the very night we met.”
He’d told her within minutes of them meeting. Actually, it was the first thing he told her about himself. Before she knew his name she knew he was a dragon.
“Why is it moving? It’s never done that before.”
“You’ve never noticed, but he’s moved. He likes to be near you.”
The head of the dragon was now positioned in the center of Tyson’s chest. It watched Liza with an intensity she’d only ever felt from Tyson, though now having both he and his tattoo staring at her was making her quite nervous.
“Liza, you are my mate. You are the reason my dragon is restless. He won’t rest until we are committed to each other.”
