The next days passed in a wave of happiness, a gift from the gods. Laina looked radiant; and he had brought this about. For the first time in his life, he tasted what it meant to love.
During the day, they laboured; at night, they loved in bliss. The only shadow was the perfumed Kurush who devoured Laina with his lustful gaze, licking his lips as he stared her buttocks and bust. Turgan suspected that he was molesting her not only with looks but with words, and he longed to smash a fist into that lecherous face. But assaulting an officer would bring severe punishment not just for himself but Laina, so he swallowed his anger and restrained himself.
By simply being around Laina, he could keep her safe. Darrians respected marriage, and it was unlikely that the Darrian would force his advances on someone else's wife.
Being able to protect his wife filled his heart with a bliss he had not known before. He must stay around for as long as he could.
