This funeral was much more fun than Ivy’s last one, which occurred
around 1940. The smell of flowers was thick in the air, and it was a delightful
gardenia-type scent, unlike the heavy roses from decades ago. All in all, it
was a lovely day, considering this was the third time she’d died. She was
having a marvelous time.
She tilted her head and studied the picture of her—well, partially of her—
from the last few months. She’d posed for it after deliberately caking on all
the makeup she’d been wearing in heavier doses for the last several decades.
It’d be fun to be herself again, freeing and lighter. So, she stood near the
coffin and took note that next time she aged, she’d have to use a lighter touch
around her eyes. She didn’t look quite right in the photograph.
A figure stepped up to her side. “She was truly a lovely woman.”
Ivy looked sideways at Herman Jones, the forty-year-old snake who’d
tried to steal the company out from under her. Her business increasing the
longevity of cattle had expanded into several specialty animal organizations
catering to people who needed service animals.
She’d miss working with the
dogs but would most certainly use her enhancement, one that discovered
what animals needed, in another arena. “Herman, how nice to meet you.” It
was a good thing she’d had everybody wear name tags. Otherwise, she
couldn’t pretend not to know them. She held out a hand.
“Oh. No. It’s nice to meet you, and I’m so sorry it’s under such terrible
circumstances.” Herman bent over her hand and brushed his lips across her
knuckles. She withdrew quickly, knowing the rash that could occur from
having another male touch her.
When she’d mated Athan, or at least when he’d mated her, a reaction had
started in her body that prevented any other male from touching her. He
hadn’t explained that back in the day, but then again, he hadn’t explained
much, now, had he?
Herman leaned closer. “Your aunt said so many lovely things about you. I
apologize for not meeting you before now.”
Considering it was impossible for her to be in two places at once, there
was no way she could have met him. Plus, the guy was a jerk. “You know my
aunt spoke very fondly of you,” she lied, rather enjoying the game.
He nodded somberly and glanced at the solid gold watch on his wrist.
“That was kind of her. I don’t mean to be indelicate, but…”
Ivy almost burst out laughing. Instead, she let her lips tremble as if she
were genuinely overcome by emotion. “But what?”
Herman cleared his throat. “It’s my understanding that the outstanding
stock certificates for the company haven’t been accounted for as yet.”
She drew in air and let the moment stretch, trying really hard not to smile.
Finally, she patted his sleeve, careful not to touch his skin. “Oh. I’m sorry
about that mix-up, but no. She sold the company.” To a wonderful, dogloving couple out of Omaha who owned several cattle ranches.
