Magic #68

Kralla snorted the water she was drinking from a flask when she turned and saw Skaran standing defeated and forlorn. "Let's get it over with..." He said. "I promised my old mum that I'd wear it if I went out in the cold. And let's face it, it's going to get cold."

Barnabas smiled. "That's erm, that's... Well. You don't see one of those every day. How do you, er, keep it on?"

"It's got some buttons that attach to my coat." He pulled at the woollen tail guard covering his tail.

"Well. It'll certainly keep it warm." Smiled Tellerick.

    I like the subtle humor you're adding to these. It really helps ground it in reality, as opposed to just complete fantasy.

    Many thanks both. I didn't think that I was being that subtle with the humour though 😊

    I like the humour too. And on a subtle level, it’s amusing that on such a dangerous mission Skaran should worry about what he looked like and would risks humiliation to heed and obey his good ole mum!
