IrishBird

Good morning, Snippetteers! — I may be away for the next couple of weeks (I’m a stage manager at the Irish Fair of Minnesota next weekend, and the weekend after that I’m going to be in Milwaukee happily NOT working at their Irish Fest) so I thought I’d leave you with something especially memorable this weekend. Background you need to know for this snippet: Terry and Maelduin have just arrived at Terry’s apartment, where Maelduin, obsessed in a very Fae manner with his own personal needs (namely, his need to find a place to stay and hide until he can figure out why he has been apparently cursed with a level of clumsiness not ordinarily seen anywhere other than the vaudeville stage), is in the process of seducing Terry. Things have reached ‘that point’, and Terry has just announced that matters won’t be progressing any further without a condom. Which, naturally enough for a Fae, Maelduin doesn’t have any of, so Terry’s just gone into his bedroom to fetch one. (Again, seven sentences, but “Bleeding balls!” is only one word as’Faein, so I’m not counting it as a full sentence….)

As he slid the drawer open, there was a crash from the living room. “Fola’magairl!

Whatever that word meant, it was definitely a curse. Terry snatched up a condom and a half-full pump bottle of Slipnslide and stuck his head back out into the living room.

Maelduin was bent over next to the coffee table, stark naked and nursing his shin, still cursing under his breath. Terry bit his lip hard to keep from laughing. The most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen in my life, but I swear to God he could break his leg tripping over a stain on the carpet.

And, as usual, a few links for you:

(I mentioned in this space last week that the publisher of the SoulShares was running a promotion during the month of August, with the first book in every series priced at 50 percent off. Unfortunately, this hasn’t happened yet, due to circumstances out of everyone’s control. But here’s the link to HARD AS STONE (SoulShares #1), and hopefully the sale price will be up sometime soon! http://ow.ly/Men4302ZttU)
