Kiss of Flame(8)By: Madelene Martin
"And I hope I can have a hot bath around here."
"I can heat water."
"Oh. Of course." She rolled her eyes in a decidely unladylike manner. "Oh! And I want some books. And some clothing. You ruined my dress."
"I will do everything I can to make you happy." He wasn't laughing now – his voice had turned serious.
"Then let's get to know each other." She said, turning to look up at him.
"I would like that." Nalranith said, and after a moment, he cupped her chin with his hand. A claw dug lightly into her skin, but she didn't mind. He tilted her head, and gently kissed her.
"My Princess." He repeated, as though he liked the sound of it.
Lily liked the sound of it, too.
