Today is WIPpet Wednesday, brainchild of K.L. Schwengel where writers share a bit of their current WIP by using today's date to connected to the snippet shared. For example, today's date is 8/5/2015 and I will share 5 lines from Once Upon a Cloud...with a little more about Stratus and Cumi's relationship. this is after Stratus's friend has walked away (you haven't really meant him yet). Read my fellow WIPpeteers here!
Gesturing over his shoulder at his friend Stratus said, “Don’t tempt him, Kid. He’s more experience in the affairs around here than you are. You, you might be older, but he knows how the Terran works. Mind you,” he said pointing a plastic fork at her and eying her sharply. “I also know you too well, Kid. I’m older still.” He pointed to his chest, “Watch yourself around him!” He pointed at her, looking sternly, “He’s a good ‘un, but he does like the less inexperienced, and you, My Dear are very inexperienced.” Smiling Strat leaned over and kissed her on the lips, sliding his tongue just a little bit past her lips. Suddenly angry Cumi did not pull away, but something felt odd that maybe she was being judged.
It was warm and wet and lasted for a while with saliva passing between the two of them. Cumi felt her body temperature rise as she finally pulled away,“You are bad,” she said eying him. A frown appeared on her lips, but she didn’t try to swat him.
