Orion is an eye glass wearing geek, who has trouble expressing himself. Velvet is the enchantress he desires. When he finally convinces Velvet to go out with him, she discovers that behind those glasses, Orion is thoughtful, bold and very romantic. Word Count: 7,642, Sweet Romance, IR. Reprint. Jayci Kyler
Instead of appearing poised and confident, Orion seemed basically frantic in nature. I’d look up from my counter only to find him preoccupied or constantly searching his backpack for something. He’d rummage for his room key or perhaps he’d misplaced his phone. In my opinion, Orion just appeared clumsy and aloof. I didn’t want him to feel embarrassed, so I’d pretended I hadn’t noticed his awkwardness.
Light conversation with Orion was useless. He repeatedly failed to acknowledge my newly acquired, small-town greetings. Remembering the depth of my previous personality, I’d learned that a smile is cheap. So, I’d smile anyway and take extra care to make sure his day went especially well.
