Big Bad's Hot Date
by Melissa Mead
BB's date showed up early. He barely stopped himself from howling his admiration. That might be fine for non-anthropomorphic wolves, but Lupina deserved classier behavior than that. This was going to be a date she'd never forget. No mere beast would be able to match it.
"You said you had a special dinner planned?" she said.
"Uh, yeah! I'm still getting it ready. Want to watch?"
She followed him across the meadow. Three nearby pigs sensed the predators' approach and cowered behind a nearby haystack. BB's date crouched to spring.
"Not yet. This'll be better than anything you've ever had."
