Yuri had been a teaser from day one.
“Your skin is the white of curdled milk.”
“Where’d you find that dress? At the circus?”
It had been part of a mildly aggravating yet electric courtship between them. Yuri made Hilda laugh which helped make a sweet sauce for midnight desserts.
Twenty years later, his teasing had a hard, mean edge.
The day they walked along the woods, Yuri said, “Your ass is broad and dirty, like a dump truck.”
Hilda revealed her witchcraft to Yuri by turning him into poison ivy. He wouldn’t need the foot brace anymore.
