Anders has butterflies in his stomach
"Ands, why the look?"
"No look, Lia. It must be… the lighting of your estate?"
Hamlet is amused, resting his head on his paws, snuffing. Anders looks nervous, not staring at mom. Sometimes it puzzles Hamlet when his mommy hangs around Anders. The mage hurts her, and Hamlet strongly dislikes anyone hurting his mommy. But he will be a good mabari and listen to mom. As much as it displeases him, Hamlet would rather bite Anders in the arse than let him set foot in mom’s home again.
Anders gulps, almost like he swallowing something quite large and painful. “I need some time to recover…” Anders turns and takes his leave, leaving mom confused at his sudden departure.
Hamlet can’t help with ruff with approval, forgetting under his paws was an empty vial. Oh Hamlet knows the contents: literally make butterflies grow in Anders’ stomach. Hamlet loved exploring mommy’s cellar and finding vials such as this.
And Hamlet was a harmless mabari. There was no way a mabari such as Hamlet could slip that into Anders’ goblet, wuf wuf.
((Yup, I took this literally XD))
