the bear awoke with a loud roar. I struggled to pull my hand away fromNathan. I couldn·t possibly fight this thing on my own. Sensing something waswrong he squeezed my hand and leaned into me and whispered in my ear,´I·m right here with you. There·s nothing to be scared of.µ Then hepecked me on my cheek. I pulled away from him immediately and stood facinghim, stunned by what he had just done. I had never been kissed by a guy«Iknow it·s embarrassing but I·ve never met a guy I·ve wanted to kiss. The kisswas soft and subtle but my cheek burned. He looked at me then smiled coyly.Then suddenly his face turned grim. I was about to ask him what was thematter when I felt the sudden warm breath on my shoulders. I turned aroundslowly. My breath caught when I saw the ginormous bear standing in front of me. I took a step back bumping into Nathan. I screamed and the bear growledso loudly the birds in the nearby trees flew away.´Skye get behind me.µ Nathan commanded and I more than happilyobliged. He lunged at the creature knocking it to the ground and falling on topof it. He scratched it once on the shoulder. I could smell the blood pouring out.I don·t remember clearly what happened next. The human side of meseem to shut down and the animalistic side took over. The bear got up,knocking Nathan off of him. He lay at the foot of the bear. The creature wasabout to put the finishing blow on Nathan when I raced over and broke its pawin a matter of second. It fell to the ground whimpering in pain before I jumpedon top of the animal. I held its head in my hands for a few moments beforesnapping its neck with the simple flick of my wrist. I sunk my teeth into itsneck without any further hesitation. I sighed in pleasure once the blood fromthe animal hit the back of my throat.It was so warm, thick, rich and sweet. It flowed hot and sweet down mythroat. It soothed the burning that had been ticking me off. The blood seemedto warm my entire body. I could feel it flowing through me. I sighed infrustration once I had emptied the animal. I got off of it and licked my lips,wiping off any remaining blood with the back of my hand. I walked over toNathan who was still sitting on the ground and offered him my hand. He tookand helped him up.
