Set Up: This excerpt is a little further into the scene, but follows my last post chronologically. They hear a noise outside the cottage, and at first Mattie thinks it is just a wild animal.
Mattie leaned closer, squinting through the small gap in the shutters. Something was moving through the trees, and it was too large to be a squirrel or a fox.
The strange figure emerged from the dark woods and - oh, it was a woman... and she was naked, like a sculpture in an art museum but without the fig leaves. Her skin glowed like moonlight. The blustering gusts, which were beating at the rest of the forest, were tamed around her, caressing her long unbound hair, until her tresses lifted from her bare shoulders and undulated through the air like snakes.
Mattie put her hand over her mouth to smother a gasp, but Alex must have heard because he immediately secured the shutters, eliminating the crack through which she'd been peering. Then he yanked Mattie away from the window and motioned for her to remain quiet.
