Zev got back to the suite just as Lavanya stepped out of her rooms. His breath caught in his throat when he saw her. Holy shit! Her shoulders were bare and so smooth that her skin looked like a bowl of cream. Her dress was a strapless, black, sequined number that hugged her body and sparkled in the light. Plus, the front was an amazing piece of art. A line of emeralds and crystals formed a tail that started at her calf and twisted up around her hips to her breasts, where it formed a dragon’s head. Its jaws were open, and black feathers jutted out to simulate smoke streaming from its mouth.
“There you are.” Lavanya’s voice barely broke through to him. She smiled, gathered her skirt, and walked toward him like a small slice of heaven.
“Lavanya, you look…amazing.” She might have said “thank you,” but he wasn’t sure. He could lose himself in her. Damn it, he thought. It might be too late already.
As she reached him, he magically changed the color of his jacket panels from dirty brown to silver gray and his t-shirt to black to better match her gown. She noticed the color change.

Lavanya shivered in his hold, but her arms moved to circle his waist in a comfortable embrace.
“Thanks.” Lavanya’s voice washed over him.
“Letting me…telling me the truth.” Lavanya’s small hands caressed his lower back and he knew he had to tell her everything…
