As Leigh watched Corby and, Elric, she thought she’d heard him say his name was, the little tiger came over and started rubbing herself against her legs. She absently petted her, as she moved over slightly to be less obvious in her watching.
Poor kid she thought, doesn’t know what he’s got himself into yet.
Leigh scratched behind the tiger’s ears. She began purring so loudly she was surprised she didn’t give away their spot. Maybe if she got out of this place she could get a side car and find a pet. Cats and Dogs weren’t nearly as fickle as her fellow human beings.
Leigh wondered if the tiger had a name, she couldn't remember hearing anyone call her one.
Ivory, her author's voice answered the question softly.
