Hi everyone! Welcome to Tuesday Tales!
This week’s word Prompt is “steady”. The next few weeks we’re going to take a look at the sixth book in the Hallow Brothers series, Featherweight, before diving back into the fourth Gods of DC book.

It was already uncomfortable for the three large men to be stuffed in the cab of the truck with their things. Bounding off each other with every turn of the steering wheel made it ten times worse. They opted against Micah’s Jeep for the very reason Josiah was driving like a madman. The lack of windows on the Jeep made them an easy target for vampires roaming the woods.
The wack of a large branch against the windshield made Ezekiel jump out of his skin. “Think you could keep this hunk of junk a little more steady, Joe?”
“Sure,” Josiah returned. “Let me slow down. We don’t have a fucking clue what happens if a bloodsucker feeds on us. Want to be our test subject?”
“Duly noted,” Ezekiel grumbled as he gripped tighter to the armrest mounted to the door. He glanced out the window into the woods. He could see the shadows shift and by their pace they weren’t the trees swaying in the wind. A face or two, pale in the moonlight, rushed by. He couldn’t wait to get home.
The advantage of Josiah speeding through the forest was that they got home quicker than normal. The cabins lining the clearing in the forest was a sight for sore eyes. The entire area blazed with the glow of the newly installed floodlights.
Josiah pulled the truck into a spot next to the rest of the vehicles. Micah shoved at Ezekiel until the younger Hallow finally hopped out of the truck. Once his foot hit the ground, Micah sprinted to his cabin.
“Maybe we shouldn’t have taken him,” Ezekiel suggested.
Josiah shrugged. “He offered.”
The two met crossed the cabins toward the seven smaller cabins inhabited by the brothers. Before they got halfway, the door to Josiah’s opened. A tall, beautiful blonde cradling a blue wrapped bundle in her arms. She descended the wooden porch steps and headed towards them.
Josiah pulled her into his arms and kissed her. “Sarah, why aren’t you asleep?”
Sarah smiled at him and lifted her arms a little. “Little Zane just fell asleep himself. I heard the truck arrive before I climbed into bed.” She looked at Ezekiel then pulled free from her husband’s embrace. She pressed a kiss to Ezekiel’s cheek. “I hear congratulations are in order, champ.”
Josiah nodded to him. “Great job tonight. Now go hit the shower and go to bed.”
“Sure thing, boss.”
Ezekiel watched as Josiah wrapped his arm around Sarah’s waist Together they made their way back to their cabin.
He couldn’t stop the jealousy that burned in his heart. Five of his brothers found their mates and fell in love. He had no desire to settle down. One night stands worked for him.
But suddenly the urge to have someone waiting for him with the words “I love you” on her lips was the only thing he wanted.
