“Lobo.” He spoke as he fell into step beside her.

She paused to glance up at him and he stopped right along with her. “Oh, it’s you.”

That smarted. He wasn’t sure what to think of her response.

“Yes, me. Dutch.”

Her full lips twitched. “Dutch, right. Just like Arnold in Predator.” She shook her head. “Something I can do for you?”

He’d seen Predator once, after a member of the British SBS plied him with the nickname. Shoving the memory back, he struggled with the impulse to salute her for all the warmth in her tone. She threw him. Most women fawned over his looks and would love any attention he heaped upon them. He was after all, not without manners, and let’s not forget, a Marine. An elite warrior and here in this jungle, unique to the normal flavors. This woman was different. He angled his body to block her forward movement.

“Care for some company?” Did he sound desperate? Perhaps.

“You don’t even know where I’m going.”

He blinked and watched her. He wanted to touch her smooth dark skin and follow the path he made with his fingers using his tongue. He’d never met a woman before who smelled so pure. No scented soaps or lotions. Just clean woman.
She unwrapped a toothpick and put it in her mouth. “This some kind of joke with you and the rest of your team, Dutch? See if you can get me into bed.”
He stepped closer admiring how she refused to back up, even if she did have to tip her head to maintain eye contact. “I’ve already had you in bed, engel.”
