Hi everyone! Welcome back to another six from my Bonded in Exile excerpt. Thanks for stopping by and leaving you comments 🙂 Hope you’re all enjoying it!
“Thanks,” Emily said coolly as he put the last strip of tape on her bandage.
“You’re welcome,” Silas replied, leaning forward to untie the laces of his boots.
“Here,” she said, scooting off the bed, carefully keeping her weight on the ball of her foot as she knelt on the old oak boards in the space between his parted thighs and took the laces from his hands, “let me do it.”
Surprise briefly crossed his face before settling into his typical stoic, emotionless mask. He sat up, his spine rigid as she unlaced the boot of his uninjured leg first and pulled it off, setting it on the floor beside her. She did the same with his injured leg, only this time, a wet, sucking sound protested the removal of the boot as she pulled it free of his foot.
