Earlier this month a proposal was shared. Now in the theme of June weddings, an excerpt from a wedding. The snippit is the handfasting of Glynnes and Talann as recorded in the Reader’s Bonus of Hatchling’s Vengeance Glynnes has come into the room after the last of the meetings to plan their upcoming nuptials.
He could feel her anger directed at him. “Glyn, my love, aren’t you pleased with the plans?”
She hesitated. “Yes.”
He enfolded her in his arms. “The ceremony is for you, darling. My job is to do what I’m told, to look handsome. And…” A corner of his lips lifted in a smile and laughter danced in his eyes. “Not to disappoint you on our wedding night.”
An innocence at odds with the earlier mischievousness smoothed his features. “I’m doing the best I can.” He held the disarming pose until some of the tension left her body.
“Who told you that?” Glynnes growled.
Talann waited a heartbeat, then started holding up fingers. “Ranald, my father, Liam, Kynan, and that is just a few of the men from Cloud Eyrie.” He held up a second hand. “Vivel, every married master of the Ceoltier Guild who ever lectured me on protocol, my Uncle Eroh of Clan Weiss, Uncle Elem of Clan Miller.” He waited and added, “Uaine threatened me with dismemberment if I make you unhappy.”
Before his mate could react, he flicked up another finger. “Our illustrious lady ruler, my mother, Lady Dealan, Lexii.” He paused as if taking a breath before continuing.
“All right, I yield,” Glynnes said, holding up a hand. “No one can fight that horde of relatives and friends.”
