I feel bad. I’m behind in my reading but this week has had the house next door burning down (on purpose, they were knocking it down but then got the bright idea, let’s set it on fire), broken windshields, making and grading midterms and then four days of my blood sugar going from 350 to 90 and back again over and over which is draining. I will catch up, promise)
I’m continuing with These Haunted HIlls. I’m going nano rebel and finishing this as part of the 50K. I’ve moved them out of the kitchen and they’re at Josh’s house on the couch (Cass in a chair) watching the video evidence of their ghost investigation.
Something huge and heavy jumped up on the couch. Brendan jumped, bumping shoulders with Josh. One of the largest cats he’d ever seen strode across the pillow and parked itself next to him. White fronted, the cat sported a blanket of dark grey tabby.
“That’s K’ehleyr. She’s curious and friendly. I probably should have asked you if you were allergic before this.”
“I’m not.” He reached over and petted her head. She purred and pushed her massive head into it. “I’ve never seen a cat this big. What is she?”
“Skogkatt. We call them Norwegian Forest Cat and if you think she’s big.” Josh whistled. “Worf!”
A huge tawny tabby ran in, long fur fluttering. It promptly leapt into Josh’s lap.
“Worf’s a Maine Coon.”
“You sure? You’re probably out there catching bobcats with your foxes.” Brendan laughed. “And could you get geekier names for them?”
“He was going to name them Archer and Kiyomi.” Cassia offered,
Josh shot her a glare. “Hush you…though that was true. And now that they’re here you’re never going to be rid of them.”
