Heat. There reaches a point in everybody’s life when they can no longer take the heat. Just a momentary snap, but for a second in time, enough is enough. Ellit had reached that point. She’d long lost Jean after the two were split up by a band of scavengers. Jean went one way, Ellit went the other. And much to the blonde’s luck, she ended up below the citadel.
For the last couple days, she had parked herself under the water valves up in Immortan’s lair. At first, she chose it because maybe the soil was damp enough from the drippings to prove fertile ground. Two seeds wasted proved that to be wrong. So, there she sat, dejected and just… done. Some mistook her for a war boy, herself. Pale of skin, with the red-clay marking across her eyes. “What a weird looking war boy I’d be,” was what most usually got. The war boys, and the war pups, however, had her full attention when they ran rampant down below.
Volkov sighed. Everyone had to pull their weight around here, which included looking after the pups. Not his usual idea…
Speck looked up at Volkov and walked over to him. He leaned his small frame onto the taller war boy’s front and whined. “Ain’t got no one ‘round. All doin’ chores.” He pushed back a little bit and looked up while mindlessly tapping on Volkov’s stomach with his drum sticks. “M’ glad you showed up. Otherwise I’d be followin’ ‘round Rictus the rest of the day.”
I took this the other day on a walk with my dog. I really love this case, it’s so bright and cute. This photo is kind of dark so sorry for that!😪 I bleached my hair yesterday from brown to a strawberry blonde, I’ll post a pic soon🙈
