Horse Head Cloud

Warmer days on the tame prairie, my Beautiful Big Cats, still, the way the autumn winds have been whipping around, it feels and looks and sounds eerie, as if a vampire is about to appear... or a werewolf, the leader of the pack, has arrived, treading silently over the fallen rain-soaked leaves.
The Kougar had just gotten up and was enjoying the view out her favorite window. The sky was that fall color of deep blue this Big Cat remembers from previous autumnal days. Thin clouds were streaming by... through the highest bare limbs of a tree, moi noticed a cloud that was in the shape of a beautiful horse head atop a crested neck... it was so perfectly formed it could have been one of the Kougaress’s horse drawings. It only stayed there for a minute, or so... a message?
Whatever, thank you, to the Divine!!!


Meow, the next chapter of CURSES will be up on Wednesday, October 21st, for the Dorchester/Textnovel contest.

CHAPTER NINETEEN ~ That Old Detective Tune

Keziah smiled, becoming fonder of Carol by the moment. “Hey!” she teased. “I’m not a walking talking clothes hanger.”
Carol giggled. “No... like the starlets of my generation. Anne Margaret, for example. Ever see Viva Las Vegas, Elvis Presley?”
“Yep.” Keziah nodded. “It was a fun, hip-for-its-time movie. Still, I’m not that buxom.”
“He,” Carol thumbed toward Thunder-Force Man, “likes ‘dazzle’ on his arm from what I’ve seen, and heard.”
“Ever hear if he likes being excessively dominant?” Keziah shrugged her shoulder casually as if her question wasn’t that important.
“Do you mean the epitome of the ‘alpha male’?” Carol raised her eyebrows.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 297 ~

Sylva loosened her grip. “No wonder I’ve never seen any cat that looks like,” she hesitated, “Elmer.”Gazing at her cowboy husband, she asked, “Why the name, Elmer?” Marina and Grant chuckled loudly. “He was scarin’ the local children at their summer evening cookouts. Was it Vivian that first called him Elmer?” Zeke asked, looking back at his sister. “Yep, she and the other parents figured that name would lessen the fright. They started calling him ‘good ole Elmer’ every time they same him make a run between dimensions.” Sylva frowned. “How many ‘other realm’ creatures make regular visits here?”

Zeke felt a raindrop splash on his hand. After glancing at the starless, cloud-roiling sky, he urged Sylva toward the apartment steps. Bolts of lightning brightened the distant horizon now. “There’s a few that come through,” Grant answered, then continued speaking, “Looks like the storm is about to make itself known. We’ll use the walkway downstairs.” Wrapping his arm around his wife’s shoulders, Zeke hurried them forward. He didn’t care for the ferocity of the lightning. Behind them, Marina and Grant kept pace. Soon they all trotted up the stairway. The door opened at his touch and they crowded inside.
