I think she feels the same things I do, but we haven’t said anything out loud. I just know how my heart feels when I’m with her and I don’t ever want that feeling to end.

“Be careful and we’ll see you soon.”

Ford hangs up and I stand there for a moment as I let out a breath. I don’t want to think about him trying to take Zara from me and what I might do if he does. I’ve known Ford a long time and he and his wife have been good to me. I don’t need the job at the camp, so if he tells me this is forbidden then I’ll quit on the spot. Zara is eighteen and doesn’t need anyone’s permission and I’ve got enough skills and money to take care of her. When I think it through I feel a bit better knowing that nothing can stand in our way, but it would be a lot easier if Ford didn’t make a big deal about it.

“Is everything okay?” I hear her soft voice from behind me and I turn around to see her in the doorway.

“Everything is going to be fine.” I walk to her and pull her against my chest as I feel her small arms attempt to circle my waist.

“Is it?” She leans back to look up at me with her big blue eyes that remind me of a spring sky.

“I’ll make sure of it.” I kiss the top of her head and then rest my cheek against it. I don’t want this moment to be broken, but I need to get her things and bring her home so I can stop worrying about what is going to happen when we get back to camp. “Let’s get you dressed.”

We’re quiet as I help her put her clothes back on. They’ve dried out well enough since last night, but it won’t be long before we’re back here and she can change again. There are worry lines around her eyes, but I don’t want to bring voice to my own fears. Instead I try to be strong and confident as we get ready to make our way back down the mountain to Camp Hardwood.

“The terrain is too rough to bring my Jeep all the way up here so we have to hike down a bit to get to it.”

“Okay.” She’s quiet as I take her hand and we make our way through the thick trees.

Along the way a lot of debris and some larger branches have fallen. A couple of times I have to help her over them by picking her up and lifting her. Every time my hands are on her, my mind goes insane with need. Even the soft feel of her palm in mine is driving my desire forward. The more we walk in silence the stronger my want grows and I can’t take much more.

My shorts are painful as I try to hike with my hard cock aching between my thighs. I don’t know how many more steps I can take before I need some relief but it won’t be much longer.

Up ahead a huge tree has fallen over the trail and blocks the path to my Jeep. We’re still so deep in the woods that there’s no one around for miles who could help us get this out of the way. I’ll have to bring a crew up with chainsaws to get it out of here, but for now we can go over it.

Visions of bending Zara over it and fucking her out here in the open slam in my mind all at once and my feet stumble.

“Moose.” Zara stops and tugs on my hand.

“I can’t,” I say as I swallow hard. “I need you.”

Her eyes widen as I yank her against me and lift her off the ground. I stomp over to where the tree is and set her on it, desperately tugging at my shorts.

“What are you doing?” I hear the edge of desire in her voice as she looks at me and then looks around us.

“Bend over the tree. I can’t wait much longer.” I shove my shorts down to my ankles along with my boxer briefs. I pull my shirt off and toss it on the damp moss and see she’s still frozen in place. “Now,” I bark, and she snaps to attention.

I grab the back of her shorts and she lies over the log on her belly. It’s big enough that her feet don’t touch the ground, but she’s the perfect height for me to fuck her on it.

“I’ll try to be easy,” I pledge as I grab the base of my cock and slide the tip between her wet folds.

The one word spoken softly echoes around me like a call to battle. My sweet, innocent, lost angel wants me to possess her just as much as I need to do it.
