Here's my Tuesday Teaser from "Tonia".
He kept telling himself to tread lightly, to allow her to come to him but this last week especially had been torture. When he was at the ranch he slept in her room in an armchair. His presence did seem to keep the nightmares at minimum, but this week had been hard for her. As he read by the fire watching her sleep fitfully each night, all he really wanted to do was get into the bed and hold her. He wanted to roar in frustration.
Byron leaned back against the corral fence and stretched out a hand with a sugar cube in the palm. The painted dun Tonia had commented on walked over slowly to investigate. He smiled when the brave mare nuzzled his hand and then nibbled up the sugar. She rubbed her muzzle against his hand looking for more. He chuckled. “Good girl.” Reaching into his pocket he brought out another cube for her. He rubbed his hand up and down her head and then gave her a good pat on her neck. “Slow and steady. I just have to be patient with her too, don’t I? She’s coming around.” The mare snorted and trotted back to the rest of the group.
