“You’ve added to the family, I see. More orphans in need of–what do you call it?–a FUR-ever home, Ladywriter?” Sir Guy raised a single brow as he gave her a lopsided smile.
LW glanced over at the three kittens cuddled up next to her. “Benny saw them on his way to work the other day and asked me to go on a kitten rescue mission after work.” She shrugged and added sheepishly, “You know I’m a sucker for furry little baby animals.” Ladywriter’s mouth curved into a besotted smile as she looked at the threesome playing together. “And these babies are so—SWEET.”
The dark knight gave a chuckle. “Apparently that’s not what Scarlett thinks. I believe she said in Katteese they were ‘The Spawn of Satan.'”
LW sighed. “Yeah . . . jealousy and the whole territorial thing’s been rearing its ugly head since we brought off the deck and into the house yesterday.” She grinned up at Sir Guy, a mischievous gleam in her bespectacled eyes. “You big cats can be very territorial at times, you know.”
Sir Guy sniffed and shot her one of *those* sideways glances. “If your heart wasn’t so divided amongst my CReAtor’s ChaRActers, both living and So Not Dead, perhaps we would have no need to have those feelings, my lady.”
“Sir Guy—you know perfectly well that you are THE number one ChaRActer for me, I just happen to have a big heart with lots of room for compelling ChaRActers and cute little furry creatures, ” she replied in a chiding tone. Ladywriter spun her laptop around so that her raven-haired visitor could see the screen and tapped its edge with her finger.
“Look–I even worked on some new edits of you last night!”
The flash of white teeth was dazzling as he gave a deep, rumbling laugh of approval.
“Well–wait until Soldier Boy and Chewy Man hear this!”
Chewy Man?! Oh, riiiight.
Happy Guyday Friday!
