I, Effing Feline, told you that the neighbors have a new kitten. A so-called cute kitten, though in truth she’s as ugly as a puppy. Yesterday, Mrs V made things worse. When the kitten jumped onto the wall separating the yard, she took her cellphone outside to take pictures of the kitten.
This means war, little kitty.
Today, the final snippet from Secrets of Love and War. My pet human finished the first draft this week and wants a little break.
In previous snippets, we saw Cynthia help Riksid doctors deal with their violent patient, a captured human bomber pilot. As a result the alien family that adopted her assigned her to nurse the fallen pilot. Ever since Cynthia was raped at thirteen by humans and then adopted by Riksids, she’s had nothing to do with human males, so her first day as nurse promises to be a harrowing experience for her.
Number two on her list the doctors had given her: bathe the enemy daily. She froze. For a few heartbeats she was thirteen again, and afraid.
But she wasn’t thirteen and the enemy was doped to unconsciousness. She gathered supplies as indicated in her instructions and approached the bed. He didn’t stir as she pulled the sheet down to his waist, and he remained unconscious while she washed and dried his torso.
She stood there for long minutes, her heart pounding, as she reacquainted herself with the male of her species. He was more alien to her than any Riksid: too fleshy, too pale, and far too muscular — but his face was strangely . . . pleasing.
As she reached for the sheet covering his lower half, the direction of her thoughts made her mouth go dry.
Effing Feline here again. I’m hoping one of you can help me. I need to know how to delete kitten pictures from a cellphone.
