Alec & Riley – A Dogs, Bats & Monkeys Series One-Shot

Sometimes brief interactions and a few words are enough to reveal something about a character or raise more questions we’d like to entertain ourselves by musing over. Here’s a one-shot with Alec and Riley from my Dogs, Bats & Monkeys series. Chronologically, it’s set during Book II – Sentiments & Reason, and the stage it takes place on is the Milk & Cream – the café Riley works at.

I hope you’ll enjoy it!

PS: Learn a bit about what the Dogs, Bats & Monkeys series are at the bottom of this post.
