In the beginning of the 4th book, SEDITIOUS, you will read Charmeine and Tabbruis were settling down together. I love Charmeine’s bad jokes, it cracks me up. She knows Tabbruis is so serious. Making him laugh with silly jokes brings her joy.
Later in the night, after another bout of nausea, Charmeine came out of the bathroom. “I think we are going to have to buy a truckload of toothpaste,” she joked.
“Gel or paste?” Tabbruis inquired as he laid in the bed
“Paste, always paste,” she chuckled, as she took off her robe and slid under the covers.
“That might be a deal-breaker.” His eyes followed her. “You must be the most beautiful woman in the world.”
“I already won the argument, remember? Or do you need reminding again?”
He laughed. “Charmeine, rest is what I need, and you do too.” He held out his arm and patted his chest.
She snuggled next to him, laid her head on his chest and listened to his steady heartbeat.
He wrapped his arms securely around her.
“What did the pregnant Light-Bearer ask the Blood-Hunter?” she asked with a yawn.
“What?” His eyes half closed ready to doze off.
“Do you have storm insurance?”
Tabbruis’ eyes flew open, and he burst out laughing. “I cannot believe it. That joke is really awful and incredibly bad, Charmeine.”
“Ah, but you’re laughing, aren’t you?” She laid her head back down on his chest with a chuckle.
“I laugh always with you, Charmeine, my lovable, crazy, and precious wife.”
“What would you do without my bad jokes?”
“Sleep,” he answered with a sigh and laugh.
She rolled her eyes and snuggled onto his chest. His laugh was a great comfort to her.
Suddenly, Tabbruis felt Baby Hunter move against his side. “Charmeine, did you feel that?”
“Yes, little Baby Hunter here is very active and likes to hear you laugh. Every time you do, the baby kicks.”
“I do not believe that, Charmeine.” However, he smiled at the thought it was possible.
“Why wouldn’t Baby Hunter flip when you laugh? I do. I always have since the first day we met.”
He kissed her forehead. “Alright, my love, you can tell me bad jokes anytime. They seem the best for making me laugh.”
“Good, because that’s all I know,” she sighed with a smile.
He held her closer and put his hand on her belly to feel Baby Hunter move. He reached out with his Blood-Hunter senses, heard both her heartbeat and the baby’s, and beamed.
“Semper tuus ero, Charmeine.”
She whispered, “Semper tua ero, Tabbruis.”
(I am forever yours.)
This is the song that I think of when I read this passage.
I also love Phil Collins too!
Lots of love, Emily

When I wrote SEDITIOUS,
I wrote it with the intention of portraying redemption.
Honesty by Billy Joel has pure lyrics from the heart.
Lots of love, Emily
