One of my friends is really good at looking at people fondly and it’s really nice, and tonight we were drinking with some friends and we had shared a fun conversation and he was about to leave, and we were kind of looking at each other and then I looked away for a bit doing my thing and then I looked back and he suddenly went “Awww Dorien” and came to me for a hug and everything inside me just went !!!!!!????!!!!!! and it made me really cheerful????? And I’ll probably remember it for the rest of my life
Her luxurious dress draped over her form and flared at her waist, the skirts rustling softly as though whispering a dark lullaby for her ears alone. She took slow measured paces as she passed under the arch. The elegant crowd that filled the sweeping hall quickly had their attention caught by her almost regal procession through the room towards her mother and father.
Her mother noticed her first and noted with small satisfaction as her eyes widened and she paled. She blindly reached for her husband’s elbow. He in turn lifted his eyes from those he had been conversing with and gave away the thoughts behind his cold mask with only a slight tick of his eye.
Once she reached them her mother broke the silence that had fallen over the room as she approached the couple holding court in their home. “Darling, what are you doing here?”
A smile curled her painted lips as she held the attention of the crowd. “Starting a war.” She ripped apart the glamour her parents had woven over her her whole life and she flung open her snow white wings, glorying in the freedom and rebellion.
