Nessian - Post ACOWAR fluff and confessions
Nesta hates winter with a burning passion. It reminds her of times when she almost died, when her family would grow so close to starving to death and there was nothing she could do about it. She especially despises snow, as it always soaks her to the bone and makes it practically impossible to get warm again.
Thus, when it first snows in Velaris after the war, Nesta wants nothing to do with it. She retreats to the library and curls up in a chair in front of the fireplace with a book. She should’ve guessed that he would come looking for her.
“Nesta!” He calls, large footsteps bounding down the hall until they stop in the doorway. Nesta doesn’t look up from her book but her heart starts to beat faster just knowing he is in such a close proximity to her. Damn him for making her feel this way. “Nesta, did you see the snow?” He wonders excitedly.
When she continues to ignore him, Cassian takes matters into his own hands. He stalks over to her and shakes his head like a dog, splattering cold droplets of snow all over her. Nesta shrieks and throws her book at Cassian, who is laughing maniacally. “You idiot!” She exclaims, all pleasant thoughts towards him gone - which she is thankful for.
Cassian feigns wiping imaginary tears from his eyes in his laughter. “C’mon Nesta, the gang is going to go play in the snow, you should come with us!”
“Bite me.” She sneers back. Cassian grins, holding his hands up in surrender.
