“Hold still now, or this will smudge and we’ll have to start over again, pet.”
Master’s hand took a firmer grip on her foot, and his voice took on that edge of command she hadn’t heard in far too long. The one that made her want to wriggle her toes, just to see what he would do.
His gaze flicked up to hers and his eyebrows rose.
“Don’t even think about it, pet.”
Maisie pouted, and his lips kicked up in the ghost of a smile before he resumed his attention to painting her nails.
“You really don’t need—“
“Enough.” This time there was no mistaking his annoyance, and her stomach tightened when he put the nail varnish down and crawled up the bed, until he straddled her, and grasped her wrists.
Pinned by his weight she couldn’t move, daren’t move, because she knew that look. Before it would have meant delicious punishment. Now, well now she had no idea what he would do, and her stomach hollowed out.
“I heard you talking on the phone…”
Her eyes widened when he kissed her swollen belly.
“You are not fat, my precious. You’re beautiful, and now your toes are too.”
