“Red hot coals for fiery dragons.” Ned chuckled.
“You ain’t gonna get me red,” Adam replied. “Think you got lyrics ready since your mind is working.”
Ned hissed at him. Then picked up the pen close to him. He pulled the pad he’d scribbled notes on earlier to him. “Not as X-rated as earlier.”
Adam shook his head. “Songs preferably no hotter than R rated.”
Ned laughed again. “Humans and their restraints.”
“Social niceties,” Adam added. “We observe similar practices within our pack.”
“Prides. Packs. It all comes down to conservatism.” Ned pointed to two lines on his pad. “What about this? Your kisses are sweet. What a wine I sip.”
Adam groaned. “You’ve done better.”
“Inspiration, dude. I need inspiration.” Ned tossed his pen on the pad. “Maybe we need to go Lilly watching.”
“Leave the confectioner out of this,” Woody called out.
“Wood, give him a pass. I’ll chaperone. ‘Sides we need groceries and more coffee.” Adam pulled Ned’s pad to him. “I’ll make up the list. You call out what the cabinets lack.”
“I’m gonna take a shower. Get presentable.” Ned rose, humming as he walked away.
Adam stood, shaking his head, taking the pad with him. Ned’s libido kicked into overdrive usually when his dragon essence went through its mating phase. With the dragon corralled, it usually dropped. Apparently, this Lilly affected his human side too.
Adam hastily wrote down as Woody called out from the kitchen. “We need: Steaks, milk four gallons, ice cream, chocolate, cheese, burgers, ribs, eggs, bacon, and twelve whole chickens.”
Adam leaned into the kitchen. “Whole chickens?”
“Yes. Soup stock and Aaron’s chicken salad.” Woody exited the kitchen passing Adam. He made his way to the table and sat down.
Aaron, their bass guitarist, made a chicken salad that had chefs from four-star restaurants begging for the recipe.
“Don’t we need celery, garlic, and that organic mayo?’ Adam started adding the items to the list. He tossed the pad on the table and sat down next to Woody.
“He’s making his own. Ask him what he needs and add it to the list.” Woody pulled out his wallet and tossed several pieces of paper currency on the table.
“What’s this?” Adam asked picking up one of the bills.
“Talbot’s Peak currency. Stores in town won’t take other currency. Gotta go way out on the interstate for that.” Woody slumped in his chair.
Happy Weekend Gang!
We learn more about our dragon shifters. One cooks....can we oooh and ah? I've had it on good promise that chapter one is almost done. Chapter Two introduces Lilly to us. I hear she is medium build, fiery red hair, and hazel eyes. I'm beginning to see why Ned and Adam are attracted to her.
Fall is here. Coolness is coming. I had the heater on in the car twice this week as I drove to work. Soon the colors will come and Gaia will put on her fancy dress before she sleeps. Enjoy this time with your family and friends. We are here at the Spice Homestead. Keep a few good books handy to share with your Spice and loves. I know I am!
Until Next Week,
