Sorry this post comes late, but I wasn’t able to get in and settle to write anything until late last night (Friday). Work has me leaving at 7PM and fortunately, mom was wanting some all you can eat fish; which I was craving as well. We did go out for dinner, but wouldn’t you know it, they ran out of the hand battered fish for the all you can eat at 6:30 so we had to make do with something else from the menu. We’re such huge regulars at this place that we didn’t mind and had a good dinner while we playfully teased our server and the night manager.
Because we are regulars at Village Inn, they proved how well they know us by getting our drink orders without asking. All they did was make sure of what Colin wanted. He changes it up with each visit but his drinks are usually one of three things. His normal meal has also changed but they took it in stride and made it extra special good for him.
I love our normal server at Village Inn. While she does keep up a professional attitude, she’s funny, vibrant, and willing to go that extra mile, like bringing my mom and me a pitcher of unsweet tea to refill our glasses. We drink that much tea when we’re there. She also puts a couple extra lemons in knowing we love lemon in our tea. She’s taken the time to memorize our usual orders, including Dave who doesn’t come in as much as mom and I do.
It’s people like her that I put into my stories. Though the main character I associate with her is in another book (being written right now), I keep certain aspects of her for others stories, like the young druid in one of the short stories in my erotica compilation. The kitsune she’s seeking is based on someone I knew as a child and someone I know online now whose character this fox is based on.
I’ve encountered a block on the story with the druid and kitsune. He’s supposed to be playing tricks on her while she follows his trail. Along the way, it’ll be him that falls for her. She, Leofa, won’t be in love with him, but she will be infatuated. Her heart belongs to the Nature goddess who currently remains unnamed so their relationship won’t go the same way as others have in this set.
Another story will take things in reverse, in a way. I haven’t thought of a working title for it, yet. This one has the dragon/elf taurs. (I know, very difficult to imagine let alone conceive) This story will start off with the sex scene then the couple will have to deal with the consequences of it when they reach their new home and wait to be paired with their future ‘mates’. It won’t go well for them socially, but they will stay together even though they’re community will try to force them apart.
I’m still thinking of other stories to add into this compilation to make a total of ten. I was thinking of doing a story with my elf character Jade. She’s younger, a little more naive and trying to forget the bloodshed and lost comrades in a war between two tribal kingdoms she fought in. This would be the story where she meets to one man who stole her heart and helped her heal emotionally from the war and find a new home among the folca in the high mountains. It could be an interesting story if bittersweet in its own way. When she married, she was still considered young by elf standards.
I don’t know. We’ll see how the muse dances when I finally finish revisions on SoNL. That one is my primary focus for now.
