“I’ve got to get out of here,” Nive whispered to Hope once they were free of the tower where the witch and warrior plotted and schemed. Ayla had dismissed both young women in order to discuss a plan of battle, which suited Nive very well. She had a plan of her own to battle through. “Will you help me?”
“I can’t help you escape,” Hope said reluctantly, screwing her face up with the effort it took to say no to the enchanting young blonde. “My loyalty is to…”
“We have to get out of here,” Nive said, clutching at Hope with more than a touch of melodrama. “The both of us. What is loyalty to a witch or a flag when our love is at stake?”
Drag Race All Stars 2 starts at the end of the month! Gurl, I am gaggggging…. my top picks are Alaska, Alyssa and Katya (in no particular order.) P.S Watch the top video with Katya. Seriously. Even if you wouldn’t know a lash from a leash. I promise your day will be better for it.
The warrior’s hand closed around Ayla’s wrist. “Not now,” she said with a sigh which sounded regretful. “And stop trying to manipulate me with sex. It won’t work.”
“Are you sure?” Ayla flashed a bright smile and for a moment, looked many hundreds of years younger than her age, her left brow raised in a playful, inviting expression which Kira seemed to find difficult to resist.
“We have one source of intelligence we have not tapped,” Kira said when Ayla let her speak once more. She was breathless from the extended kiss, and there was a certain pink flush over her cheeks and the bridge of her nose, but she was still mentally focused on the task at hand. “Nive. We should interrogate her.”
Ayla shook her head, blonde strands flowing loosely. “That seems…”
“This is war, Ayla,” Kira interrupted. “You wanted war and that makes Nive a prisoner. She should be thoroughly interrogated so we can be certain that there will be no surprises.
So I was messing around with snapchat (as everyone is mandated to do now that it is the current year) and it grabbed the latest Ayla illustration from my images and made it one of the options in the ‘photo swap’ section. The result was… half disturbing abomination / half strangely compelling – and that’s totally my aesthetic!
There’s more Lesbia art coming too, so stay tuned. I am full of ideas and fancies, you know.
“You may give orders to your soldiers. You will take them from me.”
Kira narrowed her eyes at the witch. “Do I tell you what herbs to use in your potions? No. Do not tell me how to conduct a war. If this place is to be defended, I am the best person to command that defense. You may come out on top in the bed, Ayla, but you are trifling with the lives of many here.”
If you’ve been following the latest Lesbia updates, you may have gotten a sense that there is some change in the air. The new Lesbia artwork reflects that. A portion of it can now be seen on the main page. Thanks to pippin for the bold and wonderful title lettering work 😀 (The cover for the next book has knocked my socks off, and you’re about to get a taste of that after the jump.)
One can never trust witches, especially in conjunction with closets…
“Hello, my dear,” Ayla said as she walked into Kira’s room, interrupting the warrior at her work. The sound of steel on stone stopped abruptly as Kira cast a curious look at the witch.
Ayla had left Nive chortling with glee at the prospect of her father’s invasion and returned to the tower to attend to more important matters. She seemed taller than before, holding herself erect and proud as she flashed a smile at the warrior who was sitting on a stool, polishing a blade.
