There was so much to gain from each other in the hostile climate that we moved in. Talking was no necessity, and we spared our wheezing breath. Our cooperation lay mainly in touch and eye contact. I love that camaraderie between them. My siblings Caelestris, Iocus, Blandita, Rubio and Calathus were there, fighting for the best mounts in humorous ways. Family She believed my godmother had done all this. What a fortunate coincidence for Draň and Luçien! *headdesk* Other activities of mine had been doomed to failure. Burned dishes were the rule. I had even managed to let soups scorch. a friend of mine was just saying (almost) this last night. I forgot Gri was like that too! “Nonsense,” he insisted. “You have loved xocolatl in all possible forms since you were able to walk. I cannot imagine you without it. Have a sip!” And it’s goooood for you! It was a beautiful song. He had grown so self-assured that he did not even bother to conceal himself properly. Arrogance had become a major weakness in him. Pft, I’ll say There were places were Luçien would never go. The women’s rest room was one of them. I can see him going in there, under dire circumstances. Or maybe not. The men showed a lot of respect and disregarded the way of females at those times.
