Is Bezukhov getting too big for his boots?
The last two evenings he has been wanting to get close to Atilla. This evening, having all spent a trouble-free day locked up in the Manor (thanks to PuddingCam staying online I know this is true) they, read Bezukhov, went a bit mad when let out.
Atilla, as usual, made straight for the Poang chair & ducked under the tea towel to begin chewing. Interestingly, Bezukhov decided he wanted to sit next to Atilla on the ladder & would not let Cagney sit there. Of course it was Cagney’s right, as Atilla’s boyfriend, to sit there, so there was a lot of chasing but Bezuky managed to seize the ladder position.
However, he then tried to engage with Atilla by pecking at the tea towel & trying to peer underneath it. Atilla was not impressed & would bang the tea towel back or lunge at him or simply ignore him. Meanwhile, Cagney was clinging onto the back of the chair to feed Atilla under the cover (to show his rightful position).
At one point, Bezukhov dared to nip under the tea towel with Atilla! Sharp intake of breath! I quickly put my hand there in case he needed a quick getaway & indeed he did & emerged with wide-eyes, very much like he had seen a ghost. He did not go under that cover again.
When Atilla stopped chewing & wanted to stretch her wings, both toyboys crowded around her, wanting to be the one closest, even fighting to be the one next to her. When Atilla tried to break away from them, it looked like a rugby match where she has the ball (or IS the ball!) & the boys race after her & dive on her & it ends in a scrum! Had there been an opportunity I would have locked Atilla up to give her some peace & left the toyboys out to cool off.
Strangely, when they are all locked in the Manor, there are no silly shenanigans. Either way, I think Bezukhov has still been a little big for his boots this evening.
