On Friday, April 18, 2014, Jory, Sam, Kola and Hannah will be getting up to a few Easter shenanigans in a wee little ficlet Mary Calmes wrote just because there can never be enough Jory and Sam. Make sure to watch for it in its entirety right here at The Novel Approach, but in the meantime, let’s show Reese Dante some love for the graphic art, and enjoy a teaser snippet from this Easter ficlet.

“You’ve got like what, six kids coming?” He scoffed. “And they all want their own colors for dipping? I think you need more plastic cups, J.”
“If you think so.”
His chuckle was deep and very sexy. “Why were you calling, then?”
“Just to tell you that everyone’s supposed to show up to the house pretty soon, so I wanted to make sure you were on your way. I just got a text from Dylan that she and Chris and the kids are headed over now.”
“Yeah, so? Aren’t you home?”
“Not quite yet.”
“Hey, Dane and Aja should be there in a half an hour, and Aubrey and Rick and Chisholm too.”
“Horrible,” he grunted.
“It’s a cute name, Sam,” I chided him.
“For a trail, not a kid.”
I laughed at him.
“So, where are you?”
“Just running a bit behind.”
“Okay. Did you find the bunny ears?”
I caught a glance at Lavra’s ears in the rearview mirror. “Yes and no.”
“How is that a yes and no question?”
I coughed. “I wanted to find out, do you know if a consulate closes?”
“Like, you know, does a consulate close for the evening?”
“Of course. I mean, they’re always guarded, but the gates close unless there’s an emer–– Wait. Why?” he asked, sounding instantly suspicious.
