Another sort of random snippet this weekend, this one from The Artist's Masquerade. In this scene, Cathal has arrived home exhausted and dejected after a couple of difficult encounters to find Flavian waiting for him, and Flavian ends up keeping him company and taking care of Cathal, even though Flavian thinks it would probably be smarter if he left. But because he's Flavian, his sharp tongue will always make an appearance.
He took Cathal’s hand and led him into the bedchamber to the bed. Pulling back the blankets, he urged Cathal up onto the soft bed, and once he was, Flavian pulled the blankets back over him.
“Are you tucking me in to sleep? When you mentioned bed, I thought you had something else in mind,” Cathal said with a flash of a smile.
Flavian narrowed his eyes in a glare. “I did, but I can just leave if you’d like.”
