Chapter Twenty of The Velveteen Tortoise is now available.
Luna the Baby Bunny
“Pyx,” I say. “I’m scared that I’ll mess everything up.”
Now he’s looking at me like what I’ve said is ludicrous—which is as sexy as it is flattering, however…
“Really, Pyx. I need to work on things. Lots of things.” I step closer to him and reach up to touch him.
I cup his cheek, and you know what?
The guy didn’t flinch at all.
Hell. I love the crap outta Pyx.
I brush my thumb over his cheek. “I need your help. When I forget to tell you what I want or need, could you remind me?” I shrug. “Problem solved.”
His brow wrinkles. “That’s feels…”
“Too easy?” I nod. “Kinda feels like we’re cheating, right? But we’re not.”
“Feels like things can still go wrong.” He’s looking at his hands. “What if I get it wrong.”
“Then we’ll try again.”
Pyx has got a wary look on his face.
“And again, and again,” I say encouragingly. “Until we get it right.”
But he still doesn’t look convinced.
Okay, Luna. Now or never.
I go with my signature move and pull my dress up and over my head.
Yay! I only got tangled up, like, three times.
But I flick my gaze to Pyx to gauge how much of an idiot I am.
The heat in his eyes and tension in his body is telling. I’m at a Zero Idiocy rating.
All right! This is gonna be great…
