Patron Short Fiction: Cookie’s Leverage

One more Patreon patron, and Manawaker Studio will hit its first Patreon goal. As enticement, here is an excerpt from this week’s ‘Patrons only’ story, “Cookie’s Leverage”:

Cookie pushed his face against the bars. Twilight was quickly turning to night, but he could see the outline of the dark creature against the bright grass. He sighed. He was not going to be getting out of this cage for a while, but being trapped in a horse, that must be even worse. “I don’t know if you can understand me Lauisis,” he said trying to sound reassuring, “I don’t know if you’re sick or … I don’t know much about your people’s shape-shifting, but whatever is going on with you, I’m certain it can be fixed. With patience and provenance… Well, someone will surely be along soon to find us both.”

The beast turned around to look at him, its eyes shining yellow-green in the meager light, then slowly lay in the grass.
