“Not funny, James, as per usual.”
He owns the circus, and me, because there is nowhere else in the city to earn keep for a Voltage horse like Cloud. So he thinks!
As a student, I can’t afford both the horse board and tuition, so the circus is the perfect fit. Only trouble, James, wants more than an Equilibrista performer. I’m on a tightrope, between Cloud’s back and James’ hot-hands.
Delivering my paycheck later, he’ll get his last grope. City Carriage Company opens tomorrow. Cloud and I have a new gig; we ride out tonight. Stellar!
