Not much progress made today. My goal is to get Aurelia and Karazana to the Tsingy by around 54,143 words. That's 10,000 words away.
Here's a vaguely entertaining piece of dialogue between three kits - Aurelia, Sneak (a crowned lemur) and Blanche (a Decken's sifaka):
“We'll be leaving the carts soon,” Sneak informed her. “Cos we're about to enter into the swamp. So we'll meet the piroguiers soon.”
What's a pee-rock-ear?” Aurelia asked, sounding out the unfamiliar word.
“Piroguiers,” Sneak repeated. “They's the lemurs what row the boats.”
“You know,” Blanche interjected, “you would really benefit from some elocution lessons, little crowned varika.”
“And you could benefit from learning that it's bad manners to interupt someone what's talking,” Sneak snapped back.
“Who is,” Blanche corrected.
“Who is what? What is you on about?” Sneak grinned at her.
“Like the Vezo?” Aurelia asked.
“What?” Sneak frowned at her. “Yeh, I like the Vezo. What's that got to do with anything?”
“Are piroguiers like the Vezo?” She asked, with a sigh.
