I, Effing Feline, am smarter than humans. You’ve probably noticed that about me.
Today is the 90th birthday of an aunt of my pet human, Ed Hoornaert. She and her husband recently celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary . . . sort of like Kathy in the short story Thimbleriggers. Mr V insists that’s pure coincidence, since he wrote the story several years ago. But after associating with witches for so many centuries, us cats know better.
It’s spooky, magical witchcraft!
Thimbleriggers is from Future Love, Mr V’s collection of short stories available June 30. Ninety-year-old Kathy is selling her sexual memories. In this memory, she has volunteered to help out in the band room after school with David Hall, whom she likes even though he’s never seemed to notice her.
“I like you, Kathy.” For a change, he was nervous rather than self-assured.
He liked her, David Hall actually liked her? There was a God!
When he leaned forward, she tilted her face in invitation. And when they kissed, heat flooded her, carrying sensations she’d never imagined . . . and they kept building and growing inside her until she thought she’d burst from a boiling eruption of need. Her knees went so weak that she wobbled against his body, hot and scalding. She immediately jerked back as though stung, and stared at him, breathing heavily, her entire body alert, alive, waiting, eager. Yet frightened, too.
“Wow,” Kathy and David whispered at the same time.
Future Love is coming June 30
A spaceman wins the woman of his dreams … but it’s too late. A crook invents a new form of pornography … but it teaches him about love, not sex. A man pursues his beloved beyond death … but finds only the evil in his own heart.
The SF short stories in Edward Hoornaert’s Future Love probe how the future will make today’s romance seem simple and tame by comparison. Think that’s not possible? You have much to learn…
