--Here's a Teaser from my WIP "Tonia". Enjoy! And I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!--
Byron leaned over next to her ear. “Were they nice to you?” She couldn’t help but smile. She nodded and he straightened back up into his chair.
“No, secrets at the dinner table, Byron!” Gavin chunked a roll at his cousin and laughed when Byron caught it in mid arc. A huge grin stretched across Byron’s face.
“Just checking to make sure all of you behaved yourselves while I was absent.”
“Ooch, lass, did you tell him that we cornered you in the dining room and tortured you for secrets?”
“I, no,” Tonia paused gathering her thoughts. Gavin and Byron were both grinning. It was all a tease. She could do this; she could behave like a normal undamaged human being. She took a deep breath. “I didn’t. But you just did.” Tonia laughed out loud at the look of surprise on Gavin’s face. His answering laughter echoed through the room and he gave her a quick wink. Byron gave her a quick kiss on the cheek.
“Well played, little one.”
