Yikes this week got away from me, mostly doing edits on my SF novella that should be coming out soonish (I’m not quite sure when yet).
I’m prepping for snowmageddon and the upcoming Yeti invasion. Honestly I am a tad worried. My apartment is all electric and it’s raining. That usually equates to broken lines and since I live in the middle of nowhere we’re NOT a priority for getting it fixed. The real worry is it going down to well below freezing tonight. Ah well, I’ll have a ton of prepared food if nothing else.
I was GOING to go hiking in those haunted hills this long weekend but not with the weather like this. I wanted to see the waterfall frozen but I’m betting next weekend it’ll still be frozen and there won’t be inches of fresh ice everywhere I need to put my feet.
More of These Haunted Hills. It’s way more than six lines but I wanted to finish this scene and move on so…
“I heard a fox last night.”
“Really? Do you know what a fox sounds like?”
“Hell no. I thought it was monster. Nearly crapped myself then too but I recorded it. Josh knew what the sounds were. He studies foxes.”
“You didn’t tell him you thought it was a monster did you?”
“No! He laughed anyhow.” His cheeks burned anew. “Then he got all excited which led to the unfortunate need to check our bodies for ticks. I didn’t see any on me but I swear I still feel them crawling.” He shuddered.
“Did you check each other? You said he was cute.”
“How awkward would that have been? Hey we’ve only known each other for a day but do you mind checking my ass for fucking hideous parasites?”
Kristen started laughing. It took her a good thirty seconds to calm down. “Okay but seriously did you ask?”
“No!” But he’d been so tempted. From the way Joshua’s jeans fit, he could see he had a fine ass. That desire stirred up things inside him, none of them good. If this continued maybe he did need to call Dr. Potter and sort himself out. The guilt started to rise again. He could almost hear Kristen saying Connor wouldn’t want them to be alone and miserable their whole lives. Connor loved them. He always wilted some when his parents were visibly hurting. He’d known Joshua for only a couple handfuls of hours so he needed to take stock of the things roiling in his mind. Lust was a bitch.
