Hello all! I'm joining in the Saturday Snark goodness this week, as last week I didn't take part due to the blog hop. So here's a little snark from my novella The Amethyst Cat Caper, and Remi my little British bundle of snarkasm.
Hawk's laugh was low and throaty, sending a dizzying current racing through Remi's body, despite his irritation. "And you are even more adorable than I thought you were." Hawk pulled Remi against him and gave his lips a quick but thorough kiss. "I like it when you get all hot and bothered. You're a feisty little thing, aren't you?"
"I am not little," Remi replied, slightly affronted, not to mention cross with himself for allowing the man to kiss him so easily.
"You're littler than I am," Hawk insisted, his grin irresistibly devastating.
Remi rolled his eyes. "That's a moot point. Everyone is littler than you are." Hawk reached for the suitcase and Remi slapped his hand away. "I can carry it myself. You seem to be under the misconception that I'm some sort of damsel in distress."
With a heavy sigh, Hawk stepped aside and let him pass. "There you go, putting words in my mouth again." He trailed after Remi, who chose to ignore Hawk's playful tone as they entered the living room. "Of course I don't think you're a dame. I wouldn't be as impressed by the view if you were."
Wondering what on earth Hawk was on about now, Remi made the mistake of looking over his shoulder and was horrified to find Hawk's gaze planted right on his backside.
"Honestly," Remi gasped, his face flushed as he used his suitcase to conceal his virtue. "Have you any manners at all?"
"'Course I do," Hawk replied, reaching behind the couch to reveal the small trunk containing the amethyst cat. Remi stared at him.
"Please tell me you didn't put that filthy box down on my carpet."
"You're more interested in your carpet than how I found your hidey hole? I'm disappointed."
"Not as disappointed as your employer is going to be when he receives my cleaning bill," Remi muttered, stopping at the coat rack by the front door. Which reminded him. "And the bill for a new door." He draped his overcoat over his arm and grabbed his hat before opening the door for Hawk, who chuckled as he walked through.
"Ouch. I thought you English guys were supposed to be all gentlemanly-like."
