“So today will be the day, LW?” His long legs were stretched out, booted feet propped up on the computer hutch in the corner, muscular arms characteristically folded across his chest as he leaned back in the chair.
“It certainly looks like it, Sir Guy.” She smiled at him. “As of 1:11 a.m. we are just 1,131 views away from hitting 500,000 hits at TAE.”
Sir Guy’s kohl-rimmed blue eyes narrowed a little in thought.
“Soooo-you’ll reach your milestone on–my special day. On Guyday Friday . . .”
LW nodded. “Yeppers. Without a doubt, unless the Internet goes down all over the world, it will happen sometime today.”
HIs mouth curled into a distinctly smug smirk. “Wellll . . . almost makes up for Itty-Bitty Thorin and Eggo Thorin and Fuzzy Thorin and–”
“Actually, that’s Little Thorin, Lego Thorin and Plush Thorin.” LW, gently correcting her favorite dark knight, said, a smile tugging at the corner of her lips. As if he didn’t know.
Sir Guy gave a gracious nod and flicked back his shining raven mane. “A thousand apologies, my lady . . .” He spoke in a solemn tone, the wicked gleam in those eyes giving him away.
“Granted, my dark knight,” LW replied drily. “I’ve also created a few new pieces of Guy fanart in honor of the occasion.”
He rose to his commanding height and gave her a dazzling smile. “Thank you, dearest LW.”
Her heart responded with an odd little flutter. Surely it was unfair to the rest of the world’s fictional characters come to life for one creature to be so darned–beautiful??
Happy Guyday Friday . . .
