Monday

        Rain slashed against the window with the accompanying sound of thunder in the background.  Raven opened her dark grey eyes and found herself staring into a pair of amber eyes. Seeing his human was finally awake, Ebony started meowing. With a grimace Raven gently pushed him away.

Aw hell, Eb, use a breath mint!” She muttered as she sat up and rubbed her eyes. As usual, she wore a pair of sweat pants and a tank top to sleep in. At five feet eight inches tall, slender as a rail nearly as flat as the proverbial board, with very short black hair; Raven Wyng would never be considered beautiful, but  attractive in a rough sort of way.  In her right earlobe was a silver dagger earring, a gift from her lover on their first anniversary as a couple. She had tattoos on both her shoulders: a raven perched on a skull on the right and a pair of spread raven wings on the left.. Her most striking feature was the scar on the left side of her face that ran from the corner of her eye down to her chin. Her companion Jennifer Wells said it gave her character. Raven thought it made her look like a maniac.

Getting out of bed, she stretched and yawned, listening to her joints pop and crack. “Wonderful. It’s going to be a miserable day today.”

“It’s only as miserable as you make it, love.” Jen entered the room carrying two mugs of coffee. She was dressed in blue jeans, a black t-shirt with a cat on the front, a denim vest and a pair of red high tops, Like Raven she sported a silver dagger earring in her right earlobe. Raven thought her lover could make torn rags look fashionable. “Figured Ebony would wake you before I left for the bookstore.” She smiled fondly, her love for Raven shining bright in her forest green eyes. Jennifer was as tall as Raven and slender but nicely proportioned, with short fiery red hair and bit of a temper to go with it.

Raven padded over and grabbed one of the  mugs, then gave Jen a kiss. “I really wish you wouldn’t give Eb tuna in the morning. Fish breath is not something I like waking up to.”

Jennifer eyed her, a hint of worry showing. “Bad dreams again?”

Nodding, Raven sipped at the life-giving brew. “Yeah. The same one I’ve been having off and on for the past month; voices in the background, weird runes floating about and what looks like a map.” She glanced down as Ebony rubbed against her legs, purring. “It wouldn’t be so bad if I could just figure out what the voices are saying.”

“At least it wasn’t the other nightmare.” Jen put an arm around her.

“True.” Raven absently rubbed the scar on her face.  “Sorry I’m in such a grumpy mood.”

She grinned. “After six years together, I’m used to it. What are your plans for the day?”

“Finishing that article before my editor reaches through the internet connection and strangles me. Then working on the revisions for the next book. The fans keep hollering for volume two. I might stop by the bookstore today too.”

“You feel up to driving?”

“I should be ok once the rain clears up. According to the weather report, sunny and hot this afternoon and through the rest of the week.” She looked at Jen. “You know you don’t have to work at the bookstore. I have more than enough money so neither of us have to work again.”

“I like working there. Sherry said she’s bringing a new box of books she purchased at an estate sale. Who knows what treasures might be in there. Besides, you own the shop. I’m just looking out for your interests.” Jen drank some coffee. “Don’t forget, Lysa and Nicole are throwing that party tonight.”

“That’s tonight? I forgot all about it.” Raven drained her mug, then set it on table at the foot of the bed. Like every morning, Ebony jumped onto the king-size bed and curled up in the middle of  it. “Heh. Looks like Eb is making sure I don’t go back to bed after you leave.”

“Already got their gifts, so you don’t have to worry about that. Had two more of those rings and medallions made.” She held out her left hand, admiring the gold ring on her ring finger. A heavy gold band set with amethyst, ruby, emerald, topaz and sapphire. The inside of the band was inscribed with their names, ‘Jennifer & Raven’ and a date: 06-06-2005; the date they exchanged their vows. The medallions were similar to the rings and inscribed with the words ‘Together Always’. “My uncle is the only family member who accepts me for who and what I am.” Jennifer sighed. “Families can be so cruel sometimes.”

Raven shrugged. “At least you have a family, even if most of them don’t want you around. I don’t even have that.”

“Still no luck in finding out who your parents are?” Raven had entered the foster system as an infant and spent more time moving from family to family until she reached the age of eighteen. The last foster parents she had were the only ones who really showed her love and understanding. For that, Raven was eternally grateful and wished they were still alive so she could tell them.

“No.  Maybe I was hatched in some secret laboratory.” With some effort she locked away the despair that always hovered in the back of her mind.

“That would explain a lot.” Jen put her mug down and pulled Raven close. “Tell you what, I’ll be nice and be the designated driver tonight.  Then you can drink as much beer as your want.”

“Now why would you want to do that?  You enjoy drinking as much as I do.” Raven pressed against her.
