In the past week, I've read two wonderful urban fantasies and today I have a quote from one, "Written In Red" by Anne Bishop. Although, it's an earth with an alternate history so strictly speaking it's not 'urban' fantasy. Regardless, it was excellent and I've pre-ordered book two. :)

In this world, humans and Others or terra indigene, vampires, werewolves, etc. live in separate communities and mostly avoid each other. The local community of Others has a newspaper, complete with an advice column. :D Enjoy!

Dear Ms.Know-It-All,
     The other night, I had a friend over for dinner and a walk on the wild side (if you know what I mean). Everything was going fine until the kissing and petting part. I got a little excited when he began to play push-away after I nipped him and, well, I ended up biting him on the thigh. It wasn't a big bite-didn't even need stitching-and despite what he claimed, it really wasn't all that close to his chew toy. Now he won't return my calls. What should I do? Signed, Puzzled

Dear Puzzled,
     First, young terra indigene often get confused when food provides more than one kind of stimulation. But when you invite a human over for dinner, he expects to be served dinner, not be dinner. Second, even though humans claim to enjoy biting as foreplay, they only mean it when their partners don't have teeth of any significance. Third, no male, human or Other, feels easy when teeth get too close to the chew toy. So chalk this up to experience, and the next time you invite a human to take a walk on the wild side, stick to a jog in the park.

Sounds like good advice to me! "chew toy" - giggle
