    a collection of quick drabble and prompts

    most recent prompt:

    Even with his eyes closed, there was no mistaking the intensity of Trixie’s stare. Nor was there any ignoring it. Eyes opening, Katya met Trixie’s gaze in the dark.

    There was only a sliver of distance between them. Katya slid his hand up Trixie’s side, waiting. Feeling every exhale of Trixie’s breath.

    “I want you to kiss me,” Trixie finally said.

    Summary

    "Sometimes they had time. Sometimes being patient was what she needed, being slow all she wanted. Some days, she wanted to revel in the feeling of being aroused, how it made time slow down and how it coloured everything just a slightly different hue. Some days she didn’t want the complete shift in priorities, the carelessness, the disconnection that followed her coming, so she never got herself close.

    But today isn't one of those days."

    Summary

    “Would the lady like me to take her coat?”

    She accepts his offer and goes to her usual booth, in the corner of the small building where she can watch the crosswalk activities as she takes the pins out of her wig. She enjoys people-watching within the diner as well. She’ll chit-chat with the regulars, but she saves her conversational appetite for when Trixie has time to sit across from her and steal a bite of her food. Again, for him, she’ll make exceptions.

    Odds are Trixie is her soulmate. Or whatever is closest to that. She’s not afraid to say this out loud, half-joking when they’re having too good of a time, because he knows how to agree without making it awkward. And by that, she means calling it what it is. He has a crush on her, and she on him, there’s no denying, but to entertain it would be stupid.

    Summary

    “I know who you are, all right?” Trixie says. He shifts his balance. Knife, lyre, sachet of holy herbs, wineskin. He marks them mentally on his body, makes a sundial of himself, tells time by the tools he carries.

    Katya strokes the bird’s tiny head. “Oooh.” He’s mocking him, his eyes bright with laughter. Trixie knows calm is the deadliest weapon in his arsenal, but it’s one of the few he hasn’t mastered.

    “Yeah,” he goes on, “and your whole thing isn’t gonna work on me.”

    “Oooooh!” He waggles his fingers in the air. “Not my whole thing!”
     

    Trixie's a champion on an endless tour of the sea. Katya's a witch living on an enchanted island. The rest is (ancient Greek) history.
