I, Effing Feline, learned that this is a holiday weekend in North America. In the States, it’s Memorial Day. and in Canada, Victoria Day.
- Victoria Day is traditionally the time to plant your garden, so Canadians celebrate by mucking about in the dirt.
- One of the ways Americans celebrate Memorial Day is by decorating with flags.
In Ed’s most recent release, Pandora Uncaged, Pandora has taking Aidan to see the mysterious mobeave, She’s been charged with keeping its unusual capabilities secret, but she shows off the creature to her old friend Aidan. (He has official business there, so she figures it’s safe to tell him.
She went to a small fridge in the room’s far corner and returned with an ice bucket. After showing its sweetly redolent contents to Aidan, she held it close to the mobeave’s cage.
Moby sat back and clapped his front paws. “Ffffd,” the mobeave muttered. She palmed a reading plate that opened a slot at the top of the cage and threw in a single finger fish.
Aidan chuckled. “It almost sounded like it was asking to be fed.”
She grinned and shifted from foot to foot—danced, almost—abandoning all attempts not to gloat. This next part was all her doing. Well, hers and the mobeave’s. She mimed putting a fish in her mouth then held the bucket high with one hand.
And a few more lines. Not too many, though, because I know you have lots of other snippets to get to.
“Come on, Moby,” she said, “do your thing.”
The mobeave ducked his head up and down then clapped his paws again. “Ffffd plssss, Ponnnn tyarra.”
Effing Feline here again. I can’t very well plant a garden in a blog post, but I can decorate with flags. Here are the flags of the countries that are part of my pet human’s heritage. Do you know what they all are?
Book Two in the Passion Island Trilogy — A friends-to-lovers future romance
Pandora Dayle is her family’s disgraced black sheep. Ten years after running away from home, she’s rebuilt her self-respect at an isolated facility for saving animals native to the colony’s planet. Her redemption feels as fragile as a dream, but she’ll be okay if nothing traumatic happens.
But when the best friend from her innocent youth arrives, her insecurities mushroom.
Aidan used to be Pandora’s best friend. Since his teen years, he’s held heroic jobs—police officer and now Search and Rescue leader. He adored innocent young Pandora so much he compares every woman to her idealized memory, and finds them wanting.
But when he rediscovers the real thing, she’s not at all what he expected.
Booker, a naïve Apprentice Cupid for a secret organization, receives his second assignment: get Pandora and Aidan to mate. They’d been close friends, so his strategy is simple: He flies Aidan to her island and tells him to impregnate Pandora.
What could possibly go wrong?
