Tekura shares a bead with Osro at the summer gather.

This story or poem is for logged in supporters only! Here is a short excerpt to whet your appetite:

Tekura flashed a two-dimple smile as Osro straddled the seat, wrapping his short legs around the log. "It's good to see you again," said Tekura. His gaze flicked to the center of Osro's necklace: empty.

"I thought I might find you here," said Osro. "I brought something for you." His hand opened to reveal a beautiful bead, a perfect replica of a firebell flower carved from some orange-red seashell.

Tekura accepted the bead, exchanging it for a clever bone bead carved to look like a house. "Shall we go somewhere quieter to string these?" he suggested.

Author's Notes

This story came out of the May 12, 2010 Muse Fusion. It was inspired by a prompt from LJ user Tonithegreat. Here we see a contrast between the Northern custom of nonmonogamy and Tekura's desire for a long-term romantic relationship.
