Jackalopes and Woofen-Poofs (2017) Angel Martinez (Offbeat Crimes)

Jackalopes and Woofen-Poofs

“Kinda wish I could take you with me, Mom,” Wolf mumbled around a bite of toast.

“I wish I could go too, sweetie. But then all the other officers would want to take their moms and the poor board of inquiry members at State probably wouldn’t survive.”

Jason told the mice in his brain to settle down. They were making him stupid. Bad thing about brain mice— they didn’t listen well at all.

“What’s wrong? You smell weird. Like you’re nervous.”

“Thanks. You say the nicest things.” Jason took him by the arm and tugged him toward the bed. “Probably too many things to hit me with at once. Being woken up to see you all beat up and tell me some half-crazed vamp has been gnawing at you.”

“Now you smell angry.”

Jason wrapped his arms around Alex to give him a hard squeeze. “I can’t help how I smell. Try not to read too much into confused reactions when someone’s half-asleep.”

“Audacity, you should keep your head down. I don’t think wolf cubs are allowed here normally.”

Miw. Her answer was little more than a peep as she sank back into the depths of Miriam’s bag.

“Officer Wolf? Hey, are you okay?” Eva stood beside him, eyeing him warily.

Say something reassuring. Say something polite. “Why?”

Despite his snarl, her frown just deepened. “Because your aura’s all… dark. Like your woodland friends are scared to come out and your books are all about depressing things.”
