Concealed deep in the shadows of the forest, a figure watched the female hiker intently, aroused, and fixated on her every detail – piercing blue eyes, the way she’d get annoyed at the willful lock of red hair that fell in her eyes, firm breasts swaying rhythmically with each stride.
She was unlike any of the others.
Thrilled with this long anticipated discovery, a smile appeared below the binoculars. Daemon was amused with the young woman’s naiveté regarding her fate, delighted she was oblivious to the inconceivable power, the great danger lurking a mere fifty feet away.
It was early morning, the sun had just risen, and Alex MacLaren had been hiking in King’s Canyon National Park for the past hour. Thick, dark clouds choked off the sun’s fiery rays leaving the forest floor dark and devoid of color. The clouds threatened rain any moment, but Alex didn’t care. She loved being in the wilderness alone among the giant Sequoias. She walked with a thick tree branch as a hiking stick because the ground was so slick. With its many hills and blind corners, the trail slithered like a serpent through the dense forest. When she had pulled up to the trailhead parking lot that morning, it was quiet, only one other car.
Alex got that tingling sensation up the back of her spine. The one that says, something’s not right - be careful. She'd been getting that feeling a lot now that she was ancient - eighteen in only two weeks.
