“My most precious treasure,” Reyna murmured, brushing the bangs from Piper’s face.
“Oh, wow,” Piper replied, voice thick with sleep. She cracked one of her eyes open and grinned. “That’s pretty corny for the recently self-proclaimed pirate queen.”
Reyna glowered and stole her hands away, shuffling away from the bed to the center of the cabin to smooth out the flaps of her black coat in some kind of grand display of dignity. “I see your recovery is coming along fine.”
“I’d be better if you were in bed with me,” Piper said slyly, rolling over to prop her head on her hand. Her injuries protested the action, however, and Piper dropped onto her back with a wince. “It’d be better if I hadn’t thrown myself off that fort balcony.”
“Yes,” Reyna said, walking back to the bed. Her eyes roamed Piper’s form in her usually soul-stripping way, obviously documenting the stage of Piper’s recovery. Her eyes narrowed. “And you’ll be punished for that later.”
Piper groaned in order to hide her smile. “But I saved the day!”
“And I get to clean up,” Reyna said, referring to the 10 or so ships and the fort that now fell under Reyna’s command. “Speaking of–”
“You’re not staying?” Piper sat up as quick as her wounds would allow. The room spun.
“I stayed long enough.” Reyna said, and then after a moment’s hesitation, bent over and gave Piper a light kiss on her forehead.
“I was asleep,” Piper whined, “this isn’t fair.”
“I’ll come by later,” Reyna said as she straightened. “We can have dinner together.”
“I can’t believe you’re making your ‘most precious treasure’ wait like this.”
Yooo, look, I did a thing! I dunno if you even remember the picture, but I was HORRIBLY bored. It’s not much or impressibe, especially not since you’re an artist, too, but I figured I’d throw it at you.
hella pretty pokemon party. that can still kick major ass. no seriously, all of these are very powerful pokemon. what i love, especially in the context of lily, is that none of these pokemon start off looking terribly impressive. they’re lowest evolution are cute and adorable, and not at all intimidating ( swablu is a bird with clouds for wings, ffs ), but yet with love and attention, they do grow to be suuuuper powerful.
