I, Effing Feline, am out of catnip. That never happens. What else is an Internet celebrity cat going to spend his earnings on but catnips? My sister Effie really likes the stuff. I mean, she really likes it.
In today’s snippet from The Triple Wedding, we learn the aftermath of Sterling’s humiliating, catastrophic attempt to hire Teegan a date off the street for her sisters’ wedding.
“Sterling,” Teegan called from the hallway as he packed up his things, “you messed up with Nakamora big time, but that doesn’t mean you have to run away. Especially not so late at night.”
“It’s my own fault,” he said.
“That’s true but…it’s dark out.” She leaned against the wall. This was the place where she’d first met him, wearing only a towel. The swish of clothing being jammed into a duffel bag seemed to accuse her. If this were business and he an employee, his leaving wouldn’t bother her. Employees left all the time. But he was her friend’s favorite brother.
And a little bit more . . .
As though to rub her face in the familial relationship, Mercedes leaned against the doorjamb of the teal room. Appropriately enough, she stood halfway between Sterling in the room and Teegan in the hall.
“I’m not running away,” he said. “I’m doing the honorable thing. I brought embarrassment and shame on a generous woman, and the only way to restore the balance between us is to leave.”
Effing Feline here again. Effie just told to break out some more catnip, because her tom-friend, Bruiser, is coming for a visit this evening.
Bruiser + no catnip = Gulp
