My Sexy Saturday

It's My Sexy Saturday! Check out who else is participating:

Here's the scoop: Participating authors will post 7 paragraphs, 7 sentences, or 7 words. For me, this time  it's 7 paragraphs from the life of Ash ~ my ancient Native American shape-shifting shaman in The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo.

Time and creativity being what they are, I'll be taking a break from My Sexy Saturday until after the holidays. I have gifts to make and not enough hours in the day for the rest. Until January, happy holidays and my best to you and yours.

Setting the Stage:
Drawn by Livie's singing in the shower, Ash transforms and goes to investigate.

I give you 7:
Without further thought, he took a deep breath. In a flash his form shifted. Reducing in size until his limbs disappeared into his body, Ash assumed the form of a snake. He slithered out of his cast and bandages. With nostalgia plucking at his heart strings, he glided up the stairs, following the lovely sound of a female voice accompanied by running water. It was a sound he fondly remembered from his life. He found Livie standing under a spray, a white curtain showing only her silhouette. He coiled there a moment, remembering how the women of his village sang beside the babbling stream as they bathed. Her voice made him happy. Three thousand years had passed with that emotion as much a stranger to him as the desire prompted by seeing Livie unclothed had been.

Needing more emotional succor, his strong stomach muscles clenched and propelled his serpent’s body upward until he was above the rod. Looking down, he found Livie foamy and slippery-looking. Her eyes were closed against the inexplicably hot and steaming water that sprayed her face. Ash tested the moist air with his forked tongue. While his sense of smell in this form was not as keen as in his wolf form, he could tell the lather was the source of the meadow flower scent on her skin. He felt a man’s desire again and was just about to slither onto the showerhead when the water unexpectedly stopped. An instant later, the curtain pulled back and knocked him to the floor behind the toilet.

Recoiling under the sink in an attempt to remain unseen, Ash watched her step from the bath tub. Sparkling beads of water trickled down her bare skin, rolling down her shapely legs to her small feet tipped in toenails colored like the inside of a river shell. Livie possessed rounded curves and beautiful breasts to fill a man’s hands. She had wide hips for bearing strong sons and daughters. A painful memory brought him back to reality. Frowning sadly, he took his dark thoughts and quietly slid along the wall and out the door.

Ash worked his way down the stairs to where the cast and bandages lay. Again and again he tried to arrange his body to allow himself back into the bindings. But each time he took a larger form, the cast would turn uncomfortably. Hearing Livie’s movements upstairs, Ash knew he had little time. His attempts to replace the bandages and cast were futile. He did the only thing he could think of: taking the form of a black bear, he crushed the cast into bits with his strong jaws. Resuming the  form of the wolf, he picked up the bandage in his mouth and waited for her at the bottom of the stairs.
And that was how Olivia found him.

“No!” Hurrying down the steps, frantic upon seeing he’d chewed off a cast that was only three days old, Olivia knelt before him and scolded, “What did you do?” His compound fracture was a dangerous thing.

Ash rolled to his back as he’d often seen pack wolves do for the alpha wolf. Olivia seemed to know animals well, he was certain this gesture would appeal to her.

“What the hell?” She examined the front leg. When she’d hit him with her car, he’d sustained a compound fracture. The sharp jagged break had protruded through the skin, the leg muscle and tendon torn. Now, there wasn’t so much as a scar to show where they’d operated. The fur had already grown back where they’d shaved him down to his skin.
