Hi guys. Here’s another snippet from my upcoming release “Eagle Man and Mr Hawk”.
This time it’s from Alex’s point of view. He’s about to meet a couple of the more exotic members of Ethan’s “crew” and discover why a man who lives on his own might need child locks on his cupboard doors.
The cupboard door appears to have a childproof lock on it. Why on earth would Ethan have child locks fitted when he hasn’t got children? I pull at the door, rattling it to no avail. I eventually work it out. Never mind childproof: try Alex proof.
I nearly jump out of my skin when something brushes up against my leg. I look down to see the rather exquisite Siamese cat that had been lazing on the comfy chair, now weaving between my ankles and purring. Is there something she wants?
A touch on my arm has me whirling back to face the bench.
“Oh my giddy aunt.” I clutch my chest at the completely unexpected sight.
It’s a raccoon, sitting large as life on the bench in front of me. It looks so comical, like it’s wearing a bandit mask across its face. They always make me want to laugh when I see them on screen. Right now, though, face-to-face, I haven’t a clue what the protocol is. The need for childproof locks becomes clear. They’re raccoon proof, too.
Alex meets more of Ethan’s crew in this scene, the Siamese cat and the raccoon are just two of them.
