But lately he’s been practicing some music I love. Next week, his group will be in the pit for a live performance of Sleeping Beauty Ballet by some dude named Chai . . . cough . . . ski. One of the dances features a long oboe solo about A CAT.
Suddenly I like the oboe.
Don’t tell Ed, but I’m getting tired of choosing snippets from his science fiction romance, Rescuing Prince Charming. This may be the last one. Or it may not.
Dusty Johnson and Reese, her alien companion, heroically got rid of a saboteur’s bomb. Soaring on adrenaline-fueled lust, he drags her into the big boss’s office, where they enjoy a quickie without getting caught. In this snippet, a Kwadran duke explains the bomb incident to the assembled workers on the spaceship project — but he gives Dusty all the credit, and none to Reese. (Edited from the released text.)
Shocked that the duke hadn’t mentioned Reese’s role, Dusty turned to him. “Wait a minute,” she cried, “this brave man did as much as I. More. Tell them, Reese.”
“No, no, I’d be dead without Reese…” She paused and turned toward him, saying, “What’s your last name?”
He dipped his chin as though apologizing; “Eaglesbrood,” he whispered to her alone.
“Eaglesbrood,” she repeated for the crowd to hear. For a nanosecond, the name meant nothing.
Then it meant everything, all of it bad.
“Oh, my God,” she whispered.
Effing Feline here again. Here’s the delightful dance of Puss in Boots and the sexxxy White Cat. Sigh.
