Tuesday Tickle: Pine Nuts and Honey
Chugging away at the squirrel story, and introducing some new wereanimals. Two of whom are a pair of mischievous red pandas who cause havoc during Nathan and Vince’s idyllic afternoon at the campground.

“I don’t think that’ll be a problem.” Nathan sighed, and watched his plan to slowly introduce Vince to some of the less crazy shifters fade away into the distance. “Devon and Hunter, get your furry butts over here.”
