This week in KateWarrenLand I'm still having headaches. I'm actually typing with my shades/sunglasses on to keep my eyeballs from exploding due to the glare of the computer screen. Hopefully I'll be feeling better tomorrow. May be time for a massage, or a visit to the chiropractor.
Anyhow, here we are in Chapter 9 of The DeFord Chronicles, Part II with Duncan and Gillian. Last week Duncan used perhaps THE smoothest 15th century pick-up line. This week: Gillian reacts...
She blushed and looked away. “I am no angel, my lord.” Her voice held a faint trace of irritation.
She began to move away and Duncan’s spirits sank. A bit of color shone in the corner of his eye and he recognized it as the maiden’s book. She must have dropped it in her concern for him, though he had not heard it fall--he had been too concerned with the thudding sound of his body hitting the floor. Duncan quickly snatched up the book and hurried to catch up with her.
Not quite the reaction he was anticipating, but for Duncan, that only enhances her charms. He likes a challenge. ;)
See you around the 'hop.
