“What’s in your mouth?”
The kitten’s eyes went wide, her ears flattened against her head, and as she hastily scuttled under the bed, Orennian sighed. “Apparently it’s something you aren’t supposed to have.”
The kitten sniffed at his mouth, and Orennian wondered if this was a sign of affection.
Then she shoved her whole head between his teeth, grabbed the candy he’d been sucking on, and fell into his lap with her stolen prize.
“That,” Orennian said sternly, thrusting a finger toward the kitten’s face, “was not good.”
Kivara stared at his finger for a moment, then affectionately rubbed her cheek against it, and the scolding words died in his throat.
Orennian’s favorite way to wake Kivara was to place a ramekin of pudding next to her nose. She would sniff, twitch and lick in her sleep, until she awoke and her face lit up upon seeing that the pudding was real.
“Kivara, I know you’re angry at the water for making you cold and wet, but slapping it and hissing at it will only make you wetter.”
