I can’t believe it’s June already. The twits turn 13 in a few weeks, but still look like they’re maaaaybe 10, lol. They say preemies catch up eventually but I’m okay if they stay small :)  I don’t love that Sam is almost taller than me now and will likely shoot past me eventually. Or he probably is already taller, and I’m just in denial…

CLASH BOOK 3 is out now too! :D Just started on book 7…

Gay’s ears twitched in annoyance but he continued. “And so those pathetic, useless, un-fanged humans are now in charge and we live in a cage of their making.”  The lioness growled at this but Gay plowed on. “We eat at their leave, we shelter in their constructs. We could choose to just exist at their whim, or we could emulate them. Steal their comforts, copy the behaviours we want. Ignore the dumb and useless facets of their existence and embrace the good ones.” He held up a bright red tin and ripped off the top. “Like cookies!” 

Gay thrust the tin under her nose and watched her eyes widen. The other two slinked forward, nostrils flaring. “These babies are pumpkin spice snickerdoodles and I dare you eat just one!” 

The lead lioness eyed the tin, then him, then back to the cookies. 

Please, please, please eat at least one he chanted in his head. The lioness on the left licked her lips. The one on the right gave a little whine. Gay crossed the fingers of his free hand behind his back. He felt Lech grab his hand, breathing hard down his neck. Sara pressed closer and Cara touched his shoulder. They all collectively held their breath, trying to hide their scents so full of fear.

Then Steven stuck a big white paw in the tin and grabbed a handful of cookies. She stuck the whole mess in her mouth and chewed loudly.  She managed a garbled, “Too slow kitties!” around a spray of crumbs. Then she reached for the tin again, “If you don’t want them I’ll-“

The lead lioness snarled and swatted her paw away. “Back off glutton. We require time to deliberate.”

    Hmm… Snickerdoodles, as a peace offering. Bold, but Gay has a point- anything with pumpkin spice in it is hard to eat as ‘just one’. Here’s hoping the pride approves!
