I decided to still post from the twelfth book of The Academy of the Accord series. This is something that I’m pretty sure I’m going to cut, but I like it too much to just let it disappear, so it will probably be transformed into a side story or something.
So, more of Jorsen and Autheren, but this is from the start of the book, before the spider incident that I posted about last month.
Jorsen took Autheren home with him for the summer and the two of them went on a sailing trip up the coast for a few days. A storm blew in and they took shelter for the night in a cave on the cliff, only to wake up and discover that they were being watched by an Afiani, a bird-like race that is not known for friendliness toward humans. I’m picking up from last week’s snippet, in which Autheren (who is known for his friendliness to everything and everyone) has invited Lirit to join them for breakfast and they are trying to get dressed without exposing themselves to her.
She frowned. “You do not undress in front of the opposite sex?”
“No, we don’t.”
“Then how do you procreate?”
Autheren was turning as red as his hair, but Jorsen chuckled. “Well, for that we get undressed, but in general, no.”
“Why is he changing color? Is he ill?”
Jorsen glanced at Autheren out of the corner of his eye. “He’s all right. He’s blushing. It’s a sign of embarrassment.”
“You are embarrassed by nakedness?”
