I’m over the halfway hump! Wheeeeeee! (Sorry, I’m excited. Can you tell?) Here’s more from Evermine, which has spun in my hands and turned into something completely different than anything I would ever have imagined.
I wanted to run my hands through the shaggy length, twine my fingers, tug his scalp and bend him to my lips. Would he taste of dates and cardamom? He had once, when we lived in another realm, in another time. Before the private war raging against his race’s enslavement by mine held him prisoner. Before he ripped my sister and me from our homeland, saved us, brought us here to Earth to live among his people. Act human, look human, and all will be well.
