Winged With Sharp Teeth - Brain Jar Press Short Fiction Lab #1
Publisher: Brain Jar Press
Steve thinks the first date is going well, but then Duke makes a confession: he's still being visited by a flying crocodile, eager to steal him away to a land far, far away.
At first, Steve figures this isn't a big deal, but as the relationship gets serious he can't shake the feeling that one day Duke will take the crocodile up on its offer. When the fear his boyfriend may leave meets with the constant temptation of being a hero, Steve must figure out what he really wants and what he's willing to sacrifice in order to get it.
What they have may be love, but can any relationship withstand the temptation of a flying reptile from a magic kingdom?
