Wyatt stiffened when something furry dropped onto his right shoulder. Warm and agile, the monkey wrapped its tail around his neck to secure its place with an arm around his head, latching on to his left ear.

“You have a monkey?” He thought keeping wolves was strange.

“He’s a Capuchin monkey. Name’s Simon.”

Wyatt held very still, not wanting to startle the critter that had jumped down from one of the ceiling fan’s paddles. “That explains the thickness of the paddles and size of the motor. Does he like to ride?” An image of the fan on low with Simon hanging by his fully haired prehensile tail and a primal scream filling the air came to mind.

“Yeah, but he gets so excited and makes so much noise, we don’t let him do it often.”

Wyatt held his hands out, an offering for the monkey to vacate his new perch, then slowly moved to pluck the primate from his shoulder. Round-headed with a white face, an eerie intelligence shone from deep within its gaze. “Capuchins are supposed to be one of the most intelligent of the New World monkeys.”

“He won’t let you forget it.”

“Um, Kiera. Simon is actually a Simone.”

In response, the monkey slapped Wyatt on the cheek and shrieked its rage.

“Ow. What was that for?”

He doesn’t like to be referred to as a girl. And before you ask, he likes to perch high to have a visual advantage. It gives him a bird’s eye view. Of note, if he doesn’t like you, he’ll toss things at you while you sleep. He has a penchant for stealing and hording Dacien’s jelly beans.”

“Sounds like he makes good use of opposable thumbs.”

As if understanding the complexities of English, Simon patted Wyatt on the head before tweaking his nose.

“See? He likes you.”

Wyatt wondered what devilment the monkey stirred up and if he led or followed in Kiera’s steps. “Where’d you find him?”
