Slow & Steady – The Velveteen Tortoise – Chapter Twenty Available

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…
