The Whole Scene

Toward dawn, I drea­med of gras­sy mea­dows fil­led with but­ter­flies. Yel­low, brown, white, and oran­ge, they swir­led around me like autumn lea­ves, lighting on my head and shoul­ders, sli­ding down my body like rain, the tiny feet tick­ling on my skin and the vel­vet wings bea­ting like faint echoes of my own heart.
I floated gent­ly to the sur­face of rea­li­ty, and found that the but­ter­fly feet against my sto­mach were the fla­ming ten­drils of Jamie’s soft red thatch, and the but­ter­fly trap­ped bet­ween my thighs was his tongue.
“Mmm,” I said, some­time later. “Well, that’s all very well for me, but what about you?”
“About three-quar­ters of a minu­te, if you keep on in that fashion,” he said, put­ting my hand away with a grin. “But I’d rather take my time over it — I’m a slow and can­ny man by nature,d’ye see. Might I ask the favor of your com­pa­ny for this evening, Mistress?”
“You might,” I said. I put my arms behind my head, and fixed him with a half-lid­ded look of chal­len­ge. “If you mean to tell me that you’re so decrepit you can’t mana­ge more than once in a day any­mo­re.”
He regar­ded me nar­row­ly from his seat on the edge of the bed. The­re was a sud­den­flash of white as he lun­ged, and I found mys­elf pres­sed deep into the fea­ther­bed. “Aye, well,” he said into the tan­gles of my hair, “you’ll no say I did­na warn ye.”
Two and a half minu­tes later, he gro­aned and ope­ned his eyes. He scrub­bed his face and head vigo­rous­ly with both hands, making the shorter ends stick up like quills. Then, with a muf­fled Gaelic oath, he slid reluc­tant­ly out from under the blan­kets and began to dress, shi­vering in the chil­ly morning air.
