Happy Wednesday! The school year is drawing to a close. Recitals the next two weekends, with final exams in between. I think there might be only 10 days or so left in the classroom. Yikes!
Meanwhile, I’ve finished a short story and edited it, and now I’m working on the rest of what will go in my “leftovers of Cat and Micah” collection for this summer. I’m hoping for a release date of July 12, which is also my 20th wedding anniversary.
Here is the second in a set of flash fiction, all of which start with “I brought you something.” In this one, Cat and Micah are on their (delayed due to work) honeymoon. Poor Cat was expecting hot monkey sex, but Micah’s been having a crisis of perfectionism.
WIPmath: 6/7/17 = 7 paragraphs for the 7th.
Cat had been sort of napping when Micah returned. He’d said he wanted to go out for a bit, and Cat was too tired to join him. So he’d slipped under the luxurious comforter in their upgraded room for a little sleep. It had turned into an internal debate on whether or not to relieve the tension. That conflict had remained unresolved when Cat drifted off into a restless state of half-sleep.
Micah startled him, and Cat sat bolt upright in the bed. Looking apologetic, Micah held up the bag. Cat couldn’t begin to imagine what was inside. It could’ve been anything from food—though he didn’t smell anything—to a snow globe of the Falls.
“Okay,” he said, extending a hand.
“Not yet.” Micah smiled, and something in it made Cat’s heart thump. “Um…can you…uh…” He watched Micah’s throat bob as he swallowed, and Cat had a pang of sympathy at seeing how nervous Micah was.
“Yes?” Cat ducked his head and peered up at Micah through his bangs. He knew the look got him every time.
“You want me naked.” Now Cat curled his lip in a coy smile, and Micah nodded, his face red. “I believe I can do that.”
