it is unwise to anger a witch

Isabella slowly ramps up her working speed, and now it includes researching motion-spells (and an embarrassing amount of falling over, but she's working on that, she managed dagger lessons and she can manage this) and writing letters - conventional mail-oriented letters, she is not sending Path on courier errands again anytime soon - to witches who know about nasty magic. (For all her insistence, Metis isn't a specialist, she just believes in a well-rounded education.)

Isabella's grandmother sends her the clan library's Book of Tattoo Spells. A witch from Brazil sends her a curse that matches the parameters she wrote asking about.

"Hey, Kas," says Isabella, climbing up to the attic after fetching the mail and brandishing the latter. "Guess what Niada Ivakesi sent me."

Kas and Petaal are snuggling, Petaal in tiger shape, Kas in underwear.

"Is it fun?" he asks cheerfully. "I bet it's fun."

Kas beams.

"That does sound fun."
truthwright: (⑵ talk about cut of meat)

Petaal rumbles happily and nuzzles Kas's hair; he laughs and hugs her.

"Yes I am that enthusiastic about it," Kas says emphatically.
truthwright: (⑸ got no innocence)

Kas watches all this.

...And then he grins.

"Fuck," he says, closing his eyes and curling up beside Petaal, "that's nasty. I love you so much."
truthwright: (⑶ anticipatin' fun)

[personal profile] truthwright 2013-02-05 08:48 pm (UTC)(link)
He does. Happy, happy faces.

"Come snuggle us first," he says, holding out his arms.

Cuddlessssssss.

Petaal hugs Isabella with her front paws and nuzzles Kas again; Kas tucks his face in against Isabella's neck and hums happily.
truthwright: (⑺ have things my own way)

Good cuddlepile. Best cuddlepile.





A few weeks later, Kas disappears again, the same way he did last time. No goodbye, no note, just gone. He takes Petaal's cloud-pine and nothing else.

As seems to be his habit these days, he sends postcards.

The first one comes from Quebec. Augustine thinks you're hilarious. Love you. K&P

It takes about a month before he sends a second one, also from Quebec:

You took away my headaches, didn't you? I liked those!

Two days after that: Went to Milliways again. I fucking love my alt.

Another week, another postcard, this one from Montreal.

I think it would be fun if you pretended to be all crazy and possessive and knifey ♥
