#SixSunday – January Black #21

Last week, Matty and Iris were looking at Hadrian on the cover of Spark!, a fashion magazine. I’m skipping ahead a bit here. Matty and Iris are taking their date to a The Bazaar, a sovereign, walled-in enclave near downtown Aventine. Iris is walking backward in front of Matty as they discuss a joke he plans to play on his parents. She trips on uneven pavement. Matty wraps her up in his arms, stopping her fall. This exchange happens after he gets praise for his “nice catch” from people around them.

Matty stepped back and brought her to her feet. She seemed to be searching his eyes for something.

Finally, she asked, “Are you a brat, Matty?”

“Depends.” He felt as if he would shake apart if he let her go. “Do you like brats?”

  1. I think I’d have the same question he did – is this a good or bad thing? Fun six, Wendy, and thanks so much for the mention. 🙂
