Deleted Scene: Khyff and Fawni Dine with Family

For Women Only.
This was cut from For Women Only. I always liked the scene, but it didn't add to the story, so it ended up on the cutting room floor. I saved it for a rainy day, and decided it would work on my blog. So, here's an inside peek at Khyff and Mehfawni on her homeworld as they're getting ready for dinner with her family. Unknown to Fawni, her grandmother has threatened to kill Khyff, which is the real reason he is afraid of the woman. He can't tell her or he'll blow his cover. Tight situation for him.

"This is not a good idea, Khyffy." Mehfawni fastened his shirt and slid her hands across his chest. "My grandmama will be there. I know she frightens you."
"Do I have to sit anywhere near her?"
"No. I'll put you between me and my father. Tovar will be across from you. But we don't eat at a table the way humans do. We sit on the floor with our feet down in a pit. The table is quite low. Our utensils are like yours though. Sharp knives, a spoon, a piercer to pick up food with. Like a fork with two tines. Napkin. But we're not as dainty as humans." She kissed his chin. "We burp after we eat. It means the food was good."
"You burp?" He shook his head. "You're such a lady. I can't imagine that."
"Me?" Mehfawni covered her mouth and giggled. "I'm a warrior, Khyffy. Trust me. I burp. I thought you were too polite for such things."
"Too funny." He rubbed his nose against hers. "I manage an awesome burp now and then. Usually when I'm around other guys."
Her father's voice sounded through the door. "Dinner time."
"Come on, Khyffy." She took his hand. "Let's eat."

    1. Thanks, Savannah. I like DVDs that have the deleted scenes - studying those and hearing the commentary on why the director deleted them has helped me be a better writer. And feel better about cutting lines that I really liked. ;)
