Volatile or Passionate...

Good Friday morning, one and all....

As I near the end of my wip, thank goodness, I can't help but think about the next book in my jaguar world.  Gunner and Tabitha's story.  These two jags seem to have a volatile relationship in the making.  In my character waiting room they each keep to their own corners and when they do happen to brush up against each other, sparks definitely fly.

What a different experience for me as a writer.  Typically, my character couples cuddle and express themselves very happily in my mind, just waiting to tell their stories...unless they have yet to find their other. 

Not these two, though, not yet anyway.

So in a moment of lets see what they have to say for themselves,  I brought them closer to the surface yesterday, and a poem came to mind.  I thought I would share...

Quiet & Beautiful
So close to the ground
I slink and I think
Why is there no one around?

The crickets don't chirp
The birds are a flutter
The bunnies stay silent
But I can still hear her mutter

"He thinks this will change things
To shift and then run
Out go his leathers
Into the hot cooking sun."

So angry, so beautiful
My sweet little miss
Her temper I shall not conquer
With merely a kiss

Yep, these two are going to be interesting to write!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Serena, fiercely adore your poem... Those two sound like a sexplosion waiting to happen... in their story, that is.

Fabulous ferocious pic!

Thanks Savanna! Yeppers, these two are going to be very explosive to write, I think. ;)

I second Savanna. Love that pic!

While there's nothing wrong with couples who are BFFs in and out of bed, let's face it, the volatile partners are the ones we love to read and write about. When they finally fall into bed, will it be to make love or to kill each other? Or both? Adds to the sexual tension, methinks.

If it helps at all, I have a couple in that wip I can't seem to get back to who seem to argue all the time. One of them even mentions that. "That's just us striking sparks off each other," the partner says. "Be boring otherwise."
He's definitely got the right idea.

Oh yeah Pat, I just love stories with spark striking couples, their build up usually leads to one heck of an explosive union, and I'm all for reading about their explosions, over and over again!!! ;)
