However, I do have a bit to share from my story this week. After reading about msisolak's hard drive woes, I started backing up my writing, to an external hard drive and to Google Docs. While copying stuff, I started fiddling. Here is a bit from Lelo's POV:
Priva murmured, almost to herself, “I’ve always wondered if there wasn’t something wrong with you because of that second bite.”
A noise in the garden made Lelo glance over her shoulder, but the window screens blocked her view. If Draa had been spying on her… “I should be going.”
“That’s my sapient.” Priva leapt up, face aglow with eagerness.
“I’ll just leave you—”
Priva grabbed Lelo’s shoulder, her fingers curling insistently into the hollow above Lelo’s collarbone. “Nonsense. You haven’t even drunk your tea yet.”
