Samantha opened her eyes and saw she was cuddled up with Nate. She took a deep breath in and smelled him. Her temperature from last night had dropped significantly. She had made it through the worst of the heat. She was glad that she still enjoyed his scent. To her it meant that she liked him for him, not because she was in heat. She closed her eyes, and breathed in deeply. She let herself fall back into a light slumber.
