"Look, I love that you're so protective. I actually really love it, even though it annoys the crap out of me sometimes, but you can't protect me from everything." 

 "I know. But this, this I have to protect you from." 

 "What this?" I asked, trying to see through the smoke toward the plane. 

"What do you think a group of known thieves and killers--a group of men--who live on an island with no law would do to a blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty like you?" 

I can't even describe how terrified his words made me.

 "I'm not trying to control you, bella," Nash said gently, stroking a hand down my arm. 

"There's only one of me and many of them. I will fight to the death for you, but when I die, so does your protection." 

A sob caught in my throat. I was so overwhelmed with emotion, I stopped walking. Thick smoke wrapped around us, likely concealing us and this little stretch of beach where we stood. He said he would die for me. The thought of him dying literally made me feel like I had ice in my veins. I threw my arms around him and buried my face in his neck. "Please don't die."
