She stroked his head and back for the few moments it took for him to recover. “Come, now, I wasn’t that terrible at it, was I?” His laughter and glittering eyes made her giggle anew.

“And tomorrow. And the next day, and the next,” Zhaiden glimmered. “Forever and a day,” he stated sweetly, kissing her hand.
