What on earth IS that rainbow-y horror worm thing?
Pretty little polychaetes who bury their several-metre-long bodies in the ground and wait until something brushes up against one of their antennae. They then snap their venomous mandibles shut so fast they sometimes scissor their prey right in half
“So your soulmate’s name is Junks?” asks Mary, squinting at Lily’s wrist.
Lily frowns, tugging her sleeve over her wrist. She doesn’t normally have it on display, but since Mary revealed the name she had on her own body, she figures it’s a fair exchange. “I’m fairly certain that’s not actually what it says. They just seem to have horrible handwriting.”
“Or horrible parents,” Mary offers. “‘What a rubbish baby. Let’s name it after what it looks like.’”
Lily laughs, but kicks her. “Stuff it, MacDonald.”
Mary turns her gaze up to the ceiling of their flat. They sit side-by-side on Lily’s bed, leaning against the pillows. “S’pose it doesn’t matter if they’re unfortunate-looking. You’re predestined to love them.”
