Cue, me having an, 'Oh lordy, I need to write a teaser for tomorrow,' moment.
*rolls eyes at self*
In my defense I am knee deep in a new wip...
Anyhoo, enough of my rambling - Enjoy!

She had finally stopped crying. The wrenching sobs that had shaken her body had subsided and he had managed to coax her out of the bath. With her body rinsed free of the mud and dirt it was just her hair that needed cleaning.
He massaged her silken tresses as gently as he could, forcing his breathing to stay even, to not give away his own anxiety. She had been so upset, so devastated that he hadn’t managed to bring himself to ask her the one question that was burning on his soul.
Judging by the knickers she still wore, perhaps she had managed to get away before anything worse could have happened. Surely she would not lean back into his hands if the bastards had done more than scare her silly.
His own beast roared and clawed to be set free, to seek revenge for the trespass on his territory, his woman. She was his, had been from the moment he’d spotted her across the crowded common room.
His jaws ached with the need to brand, to claim what was his but that was not what she needed right now. He would stay her friend if it killed him.
Let me know what you thought of my teaser today.
Till next week, folks.
