"Here you go, cowboy." The tall, sassy waitress set a beer in front of him and walked away, hips swaying enticingly. Drustan didn't realize he was ogling her ass until Kyden elbowed him.
"Forget her, bud. She's an icicle. Bigger men than you have tried to thaw that ice queen and failed."
"Who said I wanted to thaw her?" Dru denied as someone walked in between them and blocked his view of the dark beauty. He hadn't seen her face, yet she captivated him like no other. She'd set the beer down too quickly and moved on, but that was probably because she was used to the goblins. Those freaks had quick hands and liked to touch things they had no right touching.
Dark brown waves danced down her back as she swiftly made her way through the crowd and back to the bar. The short sway of her black skirt revealed tempting glimpses of the backs of her knees and thighs. Dru found a woman with strong legs sexy, and this woman -- she had muscles like a tri-athlete. He knew she could wrap those legs around a man and --
"Dru?" Kyden nudged him again. "The guys just nominated you to buy the next round. You gonna try and get out of it or keep ogling Ice Mama's ass?"
He was about to retort with a witty comeback. Really, he was. But then he saw the gorgeous waitress smack at a goblin with a menu, and was halfway out of his seat before he knew it. He was across the room before Kyden even called his name again.
"Get your hands off me, you little creep." The woman swatted at the creature over and over. The goblin just laughed and danced out of reach before darting toward her and groping her ass again.
Drustan reached down and grabbed the maggot by the back of his neck and lifted him off the floor. The goblin turned to him, a look of shock quickly turning to disgust and anger. He hissed and tried to claw at Dru.
It didn't occur to him until he let his dragon out that he might scare off the waitress. It was too late to worry because his face had already partially changed. He blew a puff of smoke into the goblin's face. "Leave the lady alone or you'll be breakfast."
The goblin stared at him, hatred pouring out of every inch of his stinky flesh. "You'll be sorry..."
"I don't think so." Dru shook his head. "I eat critters like you for snacks and fill up with bigger threats like ogres for a more satisfying meal. Pick on someone else." Dru tossed him halfway across the room and focused on willing back the partial shift before he looked at the waitress.
Her gold eyes stared back at him from beneath long, thick lashes. "Thanks for your help, but I could have handled him." Her nose was dainty and pert, her lips full, lush and kissable. Her wary expression turned frightened as she quickly looked around. Fear for her job probably made her wonder if she'd be penalized for attacking the goblin with the menu.
Souler. His dragon hissed in a long, slow breath. Drustan swallowed, every thought except one vanished from his head. He needed to claim his mate.
"Raen. It's a pleasure to meet you." She smiled and held out her hand. He grinned and reached out, enfolding it in his. His dragon let out a loud sigh of pleasure at the simple touch. Dru watched the trepidation in her eyes change to something else. Her mouth rounded in an O that she quickly smothered with a smile, then a frown. Her once firm grip now shook as if in fear. Was she afraid of him? He thought her expression had been one of recognition, but the emotions flowed across her expressive face so quickly he couldn't be sure.
His nostrils flared as her smell enticed him. Fear and desire intertwined with her sweet raspberry vanilla scent, it wrapped around his cock and took a long, slow stroke. Claim her!
He'd been about to tell her she was his mate. His souler. He needed to tell her. They needed to mate before someone else claimed her. "You're --"
She giggled, a sweet feminine sound that tickled his ears and twitched his cock. Gently, she tugged her hand free and glanced at him coyly. That was when he realized she was shy. His sweet, gorgeous souler was shy! "Thanks for your help, cowboy. Maybe there is truth in the adage."
He crooked his head to the side, staring at her in fascination. He wanted to hold her hand again. To pull her close and kiss her. Taste her. He repeated her last word merely because he had no clue what she'd said. "Adage?"
"The good guys always wear white."
