Alright, here we go. I cut one sentence just to be ultra safe. Would hate to get into trouble.

Today's episode: From the top of the Tulvar


Kaena was furious, her face twisted with anger.

“I will string both of them up from the top of the Tulvar! How dare they!”

“This Poliara knew about us, too, Kaena. This is likely not the end of it for me.” He felt dirty, and wanted a bath.

“I will make an end to it! Neither of them have any right to Correct you!”

“I’m not Bonded to you, Kaena. Any woman can Correct me.”

“I want you for myself. I want you Bonded to me. Today!”

“Kaena, I…we’ve talked about this. You could lose everything, and me…they’d simply…” Kill me, he thought. A certain level of fraternization was expected, and for the most part the Council of Ladies Captain turned a blind eye to it. With status came privileges, and if a woman preferred a man’s company in private, that was generally her business, especially if she was as powerful as Kaena. But a Bonding? To attune your kir to one woman, for life? That would earn him banishment from the Bastion, if it didn’t get him outright killed for treason. Lanceguard had to be able to be controlled, and Lord Captain or cadet it made no difference. Lives depended upon them following orders without question, without resistance, from any of the Ladies Captain, even the Ladysguard. A squad leader in the Ladysguard may find herself suddenly ascended in the chain of command on the field if her superiors were killed, and she would be expected to take charge of the men, to Command and Compel them as necessary. Without command, or without the ability to be Commanded and Compelled, men would lapse into brutish, uncontrolled savages on a battlefield. Men had to be controlled, everyone knew that. No Lanceguard could have their kir Bonded, ever.

“I don’t fear them. Which of them will challenge me? I deserve to have you to myself! I have earned it! They can all burn for all I care!”

“Kaena,” he touched her shoulder gently. “You’re not thinking this through. I’m angry too, but…”

Her eyes still blazing her fury, she kissed him suddenly, hard, pushing him backward and shoving him down on the bed, then climbing on top of him. Her lovemaking was intense, unrelenting. Gaalen was reluctant at first, but gave in to what his body ached for too.

Later, they lay entwined. Gaalen marveled at her soft, smooth skin, and she ran fingers along the ragged scar on his belly.

“You are mine, Gaalen Braeghe," she murmured. "I may not be allowed to have you in the eyes of the law, but you are mine, and that woman will never Correct you again, I promise you.”

Gordi, why are you speechless? Did something happen???

Shep, when you mentioned new digs, I thought you had a new site you put up. Now I know you meant your avatar. Doh! Sometimes it takes me a minute or two for something to sink in.
Nice new story entry!!

Jess, There is an owl pic I posted and Gordi did something with it and it's hysterical. I don't have time to go through the pages to find it. I'm sure he will post it for you.

That's one problem solved. Too bad I won't get paid for a few weeks. That would help me get a place by the 17th.

The friend you are staying with can't keep you another few weeks?

Nope. Her kids are coming next week. I'm in her son's room. I think her dad is coming too and he'll be on the couch.

I went to the Trustee office today and the best they could offer was a homeless shelter. They don't allow dogs.

Then ask if she can at least let your dogs stay in the garage for a few weeks. You can sleep at the shelter and eat and bathe and spend time with the dogs when you can? There doesn't seem to be many options here. We can't have you and the girls sleeping out in the cold for God's sake. Shelter, food and safety are your priorities.

Also...they have animal shelters with people who actually foster care for animals and take them into their own homes. Tell them you have every intention of getting them back and don't want them adopted out to anyone. I have dealt with these people for other folks in desperate situations and they are Angels and will do everything in their power to help you. They network with each other to find solutions and they work fast.

She won't. She wants them gone, too. I asked on facebook if anyone knew of pet fostering programs. I haven't heard anything.

I had put an ad on Craiglist and people from shelters or folks who knew them contacted me. I would call them directly as well as placing the ad. One women who was over the limit of how many pets she could foster took in two cats for my neighbor. They will go above and beyond to help.

For me, it was my neighbor who is a landlord and the tenants just disappeared and he could hear the poor cats crying like crazy. He hated animals and of course turned to me for help. He did have a heart after all. I fed them and changed the litter box until I could find homes for them through the shelter folks.

The bad news is that by law, the tenants had until a certain date to still claim their animals as their own. The very day I received info that they would be fostered, the damned tenants showed up. I was soooo pissed! Poor cats went without food and water for who knows how long and then they keep them? GRRRR! The next day, I saw one of the cats roaming around outside. It was always an indoor cat. They got evicted and I never did know what happened to the poor kitties.

Have to take a bath and do some housework. Be back later.

That sucks about the cats. I can't see how people can do that.

I know nothing about Craigslist but I'll look.

Hi Skid.


I would take Nights advice and look into foster care homes. See if you can find something close to where you will be working and staying.

I am so sorry you are having to deal with this.

With the temperatures getting below freezing. You need to work fast.

You and the girls are in my thoughts and prayers.

I just posted an ad there asking if anyone did temporary pet fostering.

I looked online for pet fostering but all I found is animal shelters/adoption.

Thanks.

I was very pleased with the replies I received and how they networked with each other and found a solution. And they all stayed on top of things, giving me other people to contact or contacting others for me. I hope you get results quickly as well. The girls are just gorgeous and I know they are good and loving dogs. You have been the best dog Daddy with so much love and devotion. Keep us posted my friend. Hugs!!!!

I got a reply on there saying that's the worst place to advertise and to ask a vet if they knew a place. I went to reply and my stupid finger jerked and I hit the dang flag thing. They shouldn't have that by the "prohibited" button.

That was the only time I used the site. I never sold or bought from people there. You get all kinds of weirdos mixed in with the nice folks I guess. The people who finally found a solution was actually from a shelter. Yes, you could ask a vet. Seeing the friend you are with now has already had the dogs in her garage, I don't know why she couldn't wait a little longer knowing you will have a job soon. Hell, bust out into tears in front of them and make them feel bad.

Are there any dog sanctuaries around you? I have heard of such places but have no idea where they are. Time is ticking and this must be driving you insane. It is gut wrenching knowing how difficult this has all been for you and those beautiful dogs.
