Emma eyed the two strangers as they struggled to their feet and felt a stir of curiosity. The upright naval Captain and this strangely clad and fearless boy on the cusp of manhood were an unlikely pair. They weren’t related. Emma guessed that they had only just met; most likely brought together for their foolish quest. Yet the man was quite protective of the boy; a heroic tendency. After helping the child to his feet the Captain retrieved his sword. He only sheathed it after giving the boy a quick look and a nod. She thought of the way the Captain had struggled to not look at her body, the way he had caught her wrist as he tried to resist her charms. It had been a long time since a man had successfully repressed his urges around her. A slow grin appeared, accompanied by excitement she hadn’t felt for a long time. It had been ages since she had corrupted a hero and now she had an intriguing and handsome specimen coupled with a little hero-in-training. Her mind whirred with the possibilities.
The Captain returned to the boy’s side and placed a comforting arm on his shoulder before facing her. She expected fear or resentment but she didn’t see either. He seemed curious. His sky blue eyes swept across her and then bored into her own eyes. His scrutiny made her uncomfortable but she refused to look away. She channeled anger and darkness into her gaze but he didn’t flinch. Something like pity flashed through him and she blinked in surprise. Then she felt angry.
"Your time is wasting." frustration made her voice low and menacing. "Tick. Tock."
