Today's Favorite Passage


Amil Gardner was an overly educated man. Soft hands. She would take him in a pinch. Be entertaining for a night or two. But he would be good at conversation. Better than many she had met the previous hundred years. That was her failure with Tom. She should have sent him off to live in a dozen countries for a year each, come back to her with stories to tell. A good man wasn't simply bred, he had to be correctly aged.
Next time.
Amil Gardner wouldn't be her next lover. He was too old to find the flexibility to be a revenir's lover. She needed to start them in their teens. There were no longer arenas, gladiators to get them good and blooded. The next option was an athlete. Used to pain. Cowboys were good. Had grit. But not the intensity.
