H:
Darlin’, I worried the bourbon had the better of you.

Me: No, Kal left at 4.30am for work; I’ve been awake since then,
but the landlady only just left.

H:
Did you sleep?

Me: No, the chittens were monstering and the dogs barking.

H:
You should have come here.

Me: I should. Next time I shall. How have you been?

H:
Well enough. The devil seeks to slip in with the cold, but
so far has been unsuccessful.

Me: I’m glad to hear it.

H:
And you darlin’?

Me: I’m alright.

H:
(sighing) Can your hair get any
shorter?

Me: No really, no. The grand irony of a haircut you dislike
whilst also wishing you’d kept your hair long: the only thing to do is cut it
shorter.

H:
You need a waistcoat and britches.

Me: I do. What will you do today?

H:
I may ride Tennyson. Or I may stay by the stove. Cook bone
broth.

Me: For you or the kits?

H:
Both, there’ll be plenty. You appear a touch melancholy
today.

Me: The landlady hugged me yesterday and said ‘I wish we could
be friends.’ That’s why she wants us to leave – we don’t hang around with her
enough. Apparently if I was better friends with her we wouldn’t have to leave.

H:
That is… an unjust burden to ask you to shoulder. You are
her tenant. If she wishes for a lady’s companion then she must pay you.

Me: Ha! I’d be a terrible lady’s companion.

H:
O, I don’t know. You would entertain with stories and make
mischief with whiskey.

Me: Not exactly proper though, is it?

H:
(coughing) Ladies might benefit from a little impropriety.

Me: I should put that on my CV.

H:
At least it made you smile.

Me: You usually do. You could update your CV.

H:
Ceevy?

Me: Curriculum Vitae. ‘Witch’s Companion – can provide coffee,
bourbon, piano recitals and occasional impropriety’.

H:
(sly) Only for you.

Me: Flatterer!

H:
(sharp) You think so?

Me: No, I was teasing. … You could always give me TB for my
birthday.

H:
(coughing) No.
When will you give up on that?

Me: When I have it. … Damn – I should go.

H:
Very well. I do love you girl.

Me: Love you H.
