Fully human again, though the stress of the last minute or so showed in that he was wearing buckskin and moccasins instead of jeans and boots, he stood up and shoved Devon aside.
The next few minutes seemed to stretch on for hours. All Gemma could think about was Sawyer. He was so gorgeous and so close, and she was certain that shed never wanted anyone more. She tried to think of Alex, but just then she could barely even remember his face, let alone how she felt about him.Without warning, Penn leaned over and started kissing Sawyer. And not just a gentle peck on the lips. Penn climbed over, straddling him between her legs, as she kissed him deeply. She pushed her body against him, and he moaned.
Holy crap, Gemma muttered to herself, and then stood up.Watching Penn make out with Sawyer was messing with her head. It somehow managed to both increase her lust and repulse her at the same time.Fortunately, the logical part of her won out, and she backed away from the couch.
I think Im going to go for a swim, Gemma said, and for some reason she was nearly shouting.Ill join you, Thea said, jumping to her feet.
Lexi was still on the floor, but shed turned around to watch Penn and Sawyer make out, which Gemma thought was rather creepy.
Thea walked with Gemma through the house and out the back door. As soon as Gemma felt the ocean breeze, she felt like she could think again. The bizarre lust had retreated, leaving behind confusion and shame as she tried to make sense of her feelings.A feast? Gemma looked around the cove but saw no signs of any food. Of what?
Dont worry about it, Lexi instructed her.Youll have plenty of time to eat later, Thea said with a sly smile.
That was the most Gemma had ever heard Thea speak, and she realized there was something wrong with her voice. Theas had a rasp to it, like Kathleen Turners husky whisper. It wasnt unattractive, but it wasnt quite right.It had a tone to it that was the opposite of Lexis and Penns. If Lexis and Penns voices were like honey, Theas was like jagged teeth. It was prickly and somewhat frightening.
