Fool Me OnceThe garden was as serene as ever, a perfect mismatch to the buzzing in her head. Garnet hesitated at the door, hand hovering as she debated whether to knock, or just leave. The thing was, last time she saw K'toba she'd had a gun pointed at his head. She wasn't exactly inclined to think she'd be welcome after that.
Finally she took a deep breath and knocked. There was a moment of silence before K'toba answered the door. His eyes widened in surprise.
"I'm sorry… I didn’t know where else to go."
He searched her face for a moment then, seeming to decide she wasn't going to attack him, stepped back to let her in. Almost immediately Garnet heard a soft thud outside.
"K'toba, I've just seen—" The words cut off as the dragon's eye drew level with the door. K'toba smiled at him.
"A few seconds behind, my friend."
"…you've been spying on me?"
"Looking out for you, lass," said Taan's booming voice from outside. "Wise Man's been obscuring you from view. You alright?"
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
