“Everything okay Zeva-ling?” Liliya lifted her book, covering her smile at her niece’s obvious distress.
“Bagged his bitch? How could that leg-humping, cat-licking, dog with a wood fetish have posted a-a wedding announcement?
Oh boy, did she owe Dirk a great big thank you for sneaking that announcement in to the Guts & Butts April 1st issue. She’d have to come up with the perfect gift for the gorgeous grizzly. Perhaps honey drizzled in all the right places and lots of ropes.
“And to think I…with a ruler, for his stupid ASS!”
Liliya watched Zeva pace, red faced with the paper in her hand. She was angry, yes, but her eyes were wide and glassy—filled with equal parts fear and hope. Now to push her just a little bit further. “Who’s getting married dear?”
“No one, Aunt Liliya,” Zeva stormed out the back door, already tugging at her clothes. “Not if I can help it that is.”
“Finally!” Liliya gave a silent clap of her hands. She loved April fool’s Day and this one definitely had great potential. Maybe now Zeva and Nick would collide in a mutually satisfactory way rather than the head butting ram-like collisions they’d had up until now.
Meanwhile, across town one shaggy-haired, coffee drinking bear smiles as he listens at the office door of his wolf boss’ office.
"What the Hell!!!"
“Everything okay, Mr. McMahon?” The bear asks, standing in the doorway and keeping a serious look on his face. He was going to greatly enjoy relaying Nick’s every distressful utterance to luscious Liliya.
“No-no, everything is not alright. What the devil did you print last night, Dirk?”
“Whatcha mean, boss? I printed the April 1st issue of the G&B.”
“And this…” Nick beat the headline with a shaky finger. “This was in the print que!”
Dirk leaned forward, making a production out of checking out what Nick was pointing at. “Yep, it surly was and hey congrats! Hell of a thing to finally find your mate. Who is it?”
“Okay, boss, sorry.” Dirk backed out of the doorway, hands up in an ‘I mean ya no harm way,’ but couldn’t resist a parting shot. “Watch yourself today; word around the forest is that there is a gorgeous red wolf out there with the gazette between her teeth, running hell-bent for leather towards town.”
Dirk snickered as he walked away. Nick could be clearly heard by the entire office as his door swung closed.
That naughty Liliya, always keeping Zeva on her toes. Now it looks like she's decided to start in on Nick. Hey, she loves her niece and sometimes it takes a meddling relative to kick love in the ass. ~wink~
As Liliya always says... "Thank gags for April Fool's Day!"
May you all succeed with the perfect gag today! As hard as I've always tried, I alway end up being the gagged. Lol!
