2 Works in Lerah Qonoli
"What do you miss most about Q'onakht?" Jero asked her once, early in their relationship, over drinks.
"So, now what?" demanded Lerah. Jero looked up at her, interrupted in the act of flicking his tongue over the sweet surface of the berry. In her own turn, Lerah felt a thrill of desire pass through her, remembering the other things that tongue was capable of. She pressed on boldly, however. "I've provided liquor and strawberries - what are you contributing to our celebration?"
Jero tried to read her mood. "All I have is myself, I'm afraid. But I'll be more than happy to contribute anything I can to make this a more memorable evening." What he did next, he decided, would depend on her reaction to those words.
