Just a short story inspired by oliviajoytaylor‘s drawing of Pearl and Amethyst braiding hair.
Amethyst felt content with the constant feel of Pearl’s slim
fingers intertwining through her long, full locks.
They rarely had done anything like
this in a long time, just hanging around with each other in the living room and
chilling. And it was a perfect day too, considering there were no mission to
attend to, and Steven and Garnet were out for the day doing who knows what.
Probably playing Beat Meat Mania at the Arcade.
Amethyst was perched upon one of
the bar stools in the kitchen, with Pearl behind her and intricately braiding
her hair into one long braid. Earlier they had decided to go flower picking and
came home with a bundle of flora in their arms. They used a few of the flowers
to make flower crowns for each of them while the others were placed together in
a vase for the coffee table in the living room.
“This is nice,” the young one
mumbled and followed with a content sigh. Pearl gave a lighthearted giggle.
“It is, isn’t it? I never knew
braiding hair could be so peaceful. If mine were any longer, maybe you could
have done it.”
“Don’t worry, I can probably work something
out for you.”
“Oh really,” Pearl paused in
between braiding and placed a hand on her hip, looking towards Amethyst with a
small smile on her face.
The younger one turned her face a ways
around to meet Pearl’s gaze, “Yep, I’z gots the magic touch.” Amethyst followed
with a simple wink.
Another giggle from Pearl as she
resumed her work on Amethyst’s hair. “You
really are a wonder, you know that?”
“Hmm, I try my best.”
