So I have never posted a one-shot before, but this popped into my head after last night’s episode and succeeded in being written. This is my take on what happens when Emily makes her first phone call from prison. I hope it makes up for the lack of Paily on our TV screens.
A single phone-call
“This call is from the Chester Women’s Correctional facility,
you have a call from inmate: Emily Fields. To accept this call, press 1.” Paige’s
heart dropped in an instant. How had things gotten so bad, how did Emily end up
in jail now too? A brief fleeting wave of guilt washing over her, the feeling
enough to make her consider hanging up the phone then and there. Paige was terrified
to hear more of Emily’s voice than just the second she heard of the girl speaking
“Hello.” Paige’s voice was low, lowering herself to sit on
her single dorm room floor. Her back supported against the only window.
“Paige.” Emily whispered out on a breath. She sounded tired,
exhausted even. Silence left lingering for a moment but it was a momentous
flash in time too, the silence shared between them enough to still the earth. This
was the first time they had heard from the other in over a month. Emily
releasing a worn sniffle, bringing the two back to their current harsh reality.
isn’t it funny how paige returns to town just after sara was killed (someone who was linked to emily/ still cared for emily) and ali was attacked (someone else linked to emily/ who paige hated) and then we see paige low key angrily watching emily with sabrina.
