The man grinned down at her, his faced amused and lightly touched with a sense of endearing teasing of her good, wholesome, nature.

Without warning, a noise sprung into life in the next room, the sound of a running creek and the pair froze. Facing him, the woman lowered her body down onto his, so their faces were almost touching, and they became silent. Then, with even less warning, a furred intruder leap on the woman’s back and attacked her with the relentless kneading of happy, clawed paws.
