“Elise, this Pride, it needs a protector. It needs its king, and you, you need a mate.”

He leaned closer to her, their cheeks brushing. His hands encircled her waist, pulling her closer to him. A low lust-filled growl vibrated from his throat.

“Can’t you see ... look at me.” He stepped back, taking her chin into his hand guiding her face to his. His eyes stared deeply into hers. “Look at me,” he whispered sensually. She looked into his beautiful gray eyes and raised her hand, running her fingers lightly through his black silky curls. Her fingertips trailed over his muscular jaw line. She was looking at him in a different way, in a way she had never allowed herself before. There was something about Sergio that enticed her, but it was that same attribute that frightened her.

“I am your mate, Elise. Don’t push me away, don’t deny us. Together, we could care for this Pride. I have fought to maintain my position, I am the most dominant male. It is my duty to protect the Pride. It is my honor!

Elise, the Pride should not be only yours to deal with. I love you, Elise .. look at me.”

He forced her eyes to focus on him once more. She had looked away, trying to hide the emotions that were playing on her face. Emotions that were dangerously close to giving into Sergio.

“I am all the man, the only man that you will ever need.”

Sergio let her go, looking at her. He wondered what she was thinking as she was very adept at masking her emotions. She sat there quietly for a long time. He watched her, never moving.

“It is true,” Elise began. “The Pride needs its protector, more than what I can provide. When Adam died, I became the sole caretaker of the Pride. I didn't want to share that power. In a way, I still don’t. I know my limitations, they are few but I know them. I will name you my King, the Pride’s protector. You will be honored as such,” she said as she rose to her feet, brushing the grass off of her legs.
He looked up at her; he felt that she was forgetting the most important thing.

“And what about us, Elise?” he asked.

“There is no us. You are our protector, our King and nothing more,” she said harshly.

She wanted to embrace the anger. She didn't want to share her power with anyone. She controlled the Pride but she could no longer deny the benefits of having a king. If she gave some of the power of the Pride to Sergio, it would allow her more time to be with Darian. There were always two sides to every coin. She looked at Sergio, knowing she didn’t say what he wanted to hear. She felt he couldn't compete with Darian. She couldn't remember any man in her past that could.

“Have you listened to anything I’ve just said?” Sergio asked, obviously holding in his anger and  frustration.

He slowly lifted his head to look at her.

“’I’ve heard what you said. I’ve felt your seduction but you cannot compete with him, we are lovers and you have to accept that,” she said matter-of-factly.
