Sunday May, 9th is Mother’s Day in the United States (and several other countries).
I am not a mother–unless Perfect Dog qualifies as a child–but I have a wonderful mom who, in addition to being a patient woman (raising a child as imaginative and sensitive as me was no small feat) continues to advise and teach me to this day. My mom is one of my beta readers. She catches editing errors, and she has a special knack for noticing when I accidentally let a character drop from a scene. She also poses as a sounding board, and lets me talk out my ideas with her. Her friends would be shocked to learn the high percentage of our conversations that revolve around make-believe people and places.
I know quite a few of my Champions are mothers, but no matter your status–grandparent, parent, step-parent, sibling, child, friend–when you boil it down, today is about celebrating love!
With that in mind, here’s two of my short stories that celebrate this love:
- Parent’s Night: PDF file (Court of Midnight and Deception series)
- A Mother’s Responsibility: PDF file (Snow White series)
If you enjoyed these you can find all my short stories in the Freebies/Extra section. There are stories from every series and even a few stand alone shorts so there are a lot to choose from, enjoy!
P.S. Now that I think about it, I spent most of April cooking rice and chicken for Perfect Dog and occasionally sleeping on the couch as she wasn’t feeling well. (She’s better now, but it was a long four weeks.) So I’ve decided Perfect Dog does qualify as a child! And what kind of mother would I be if I didn’t share a photo of my cute “child” when given the chance? So here for your viewing pleasure – a photo of Perfect Dog from this last winter! What about you Champion, do you like to share photos of your children/pets? 🙂
Perfect dog looks so cute!! I simply LOVE dogs❤️. My father’s family has always had dogs. And they are so playful. Even on the street when other people are walking their dogs, I just can’t resist patting them and asking for their names.
(If ur uninterested in something utterly unrelated, don’t bother with this 😅 )
I was listening to Audrey’s Christmas Rewind, and just noticed how much Sarah Jeffery looks like how Lilliane is described when she’s all dressed up in the costume! Dark complexion, pale blonde hair, brown eyes, EVEN THE PINK DRESS WITH GOLD ON IT!! I never noticed it until now, but they look so similar!
Speaking of Lilliane, would she ever accept a Happy mother’s day gift from Acri?? I sort of want to know if Acri has ever said, I love u, mom!I kinda feel sorry for him cause he’s just trying to earn his mom’s love and her approval, which has always been conditional.😟 (tho going around trying to kill angel isn’t the best way to do that)
If he keeps failing to eliminate Angelique, then I don’t think she’ll accept a Mothers’ Day gift from him. She’ll probably think it’s rather cheeky of him to do that. I, too, feel sorry for him. I don’t think he will try to take on Angelique after experiencing the bottomless abyss of her magic. At least, not without help.
Yea, he’d probably send for backup. I don’t know if Lilliane will give Acri any, though. That or he’s just too terrified of angel to face her again at all. Lilliane did mention that Acri might have failed, but there were others. Does that mean she’s gonna send other people to try and kill angel??
Seriously, Angel cant just catch a break! She runs about the continent making true love adjustments. I am starting to understand why she’s always in a bad mood!😁🙄
I know the Discord Champions like sharing pictures of pets – we have an entire channel dedicated to pictures of pets! (Shameless plug for the Discord server 😂)
Happy Mothers Day! Er, Early Mothers day! My art teacher had us make a picture of flowers and I can’t wait to show it to my mom. I’ve been waiting for well over a week now, so really hope she likes it! I don’t have any pets-my parents are opposed to having one because of my little brother and the mess he already makes-but as soon as I move out, I’m getting something cute and furry to snuggle up with! I sort of count my siblings as my kids sometimes because they always call me “mom” because I’m always trying to be mature and responsible (mostly so that my parents finally see that I’m old and responsible and smart enough to get a phone!!) Btw, Perfect Dog looks adorable 😍
For the record, when I say they call me mom, I don’t mean the sweet type of way-I mean the annoying and sarcastic, “sure, MOM-want me to clean my room while you’re at it?”
Yay! Three cheers to all the hardworking moms out there! And perfect dog seems like the PERFECT child! He’s so cute 😍

I am a pensioner, so although I would adore having a dog it would not be fair for me to keep one. I do get the pleasure of the dogs that I get to see though.
Share pictures of pets?! I would never show Champions more than 50 pictures on the same day of Teba and Revali. At least, I haven’t yet.

She does look like a beauty.
