Innocence & Carnality” Part 29 by Mann Ramblings

“I thought you were shopping for clothes,” Blythe said.

I didn’t look his way as I entered the shop, Harston at my side. “I am. I need clothing with a Francine sensibility.”

Blythe sounded utterly confused. “Then why are we here?”

“Because there’s more to me than a new wardrobe.”

My head spun at all the lovely gadgets. The machinist shop appeared to have every conceivable tool and piece of clockwork known to man. My personal form of heaven. I managed to pry the address from Rother and added it to our route. It had been some time since I had something new and shiny.

Moving Forward #16 (4.2) by Julie Lynn Hayes

He half expected to hear Dustin whine at him to slow down, but the other man caught up with him easily enough and fell into step beside him. Had he really thought he would be discouraged just because Marshall hadn’t waited for him? Didn’t matter. He shrugged the thought off and kept walking.

“Burnham seems like a nice place,” Dustin commented after a few moments of silence between them.
