Reuben found her strangely attractive although something about her appearance was odd, much different than any girl he had ever seen before. Her hair was just as black as his and reached below her slender hips. It caught the wind and flowed back from her face as she ran. Her ragged clothes were not clean and once belonged to a man. There wasn’t one ounce of fat on her wiry body, but none of this did he find odd. What was odd was her overall demeanor. There was an energy force radiating from her, a life force such as he expected to see surrounding the mountain lion or one of the bears he loved to hunt, a savage appearance that warned to keep a safe distance away.Holy shit, he thought. She’s wild!Never in his entire lifetime had he ever met a person that was animal wild, not even among his mother’s people, nor had he ever heard a story of one. Actually, he was the closest thing to being a wild human he knew about, and he was refined compared to this girl. This girl . . . he just didn’t know what this girl was, or where she could possibly have come from, but she had his full attention.A Rottweiler dog was protectively trotting less than a foot from her side, as though he was fearful of getting further away from her. To Reuben, the dog appeared tense. Even the scruff of his back was raised in apprehension. Reuben knew the dog could smell the lingering trace of the mountain lion.
