Scene: Well, Flame, you certainly have a way with words. In this scene, Lucie Bellerose and Flame (her young “boarder”) are in her kitchen discussing…well. Just read on…
“You need more girlfriends, Lucie.” Flame popped a grape into his mouth.
“I have girlfriends,” I protested. “Emily, Tara…um. Others. I just don’t see them often.”
Flame’s eyelids dipped, and he considered me with a feline expression. “Your life is a sausage-fest.”
“No, it’s not!” I tossed the dishcloth into the sink. “I can’t believe you said that.”
“Do you want a list?” He held up a hand and started counting off names on his fingers. “Rabbit, Big Rabbit, Templeton – this new Seth person. Me.” He paused. “Even that demon is back. Why? Why is he back, Lucie? He wears too much cologne. I can smell him an hour after he leaves. Make him stay away.”
“Look, these are my friends – well, Sebastian isn’t really a friend, but there’s a history there.” I rubbed my forehead. “And, Templeton is, well, more than a friend and –”
“So, what’s Rabbit?” Flame asked. “Things looked pretty different last summer.”
I opened my mouth to answer and realized I didn’t have one.
