prelude to winter

Prelude to a chibi!

Winter, sitting at the dining room table, a newspaper in front of her face: Qrow?


Qrow, leaning lazily against the counter, staring sleepily into his coffee: Eh…?


Winter, reaching out from behind the newspaper for her coffee, taking a few moments to drink much to Qrow’s impatient irritation: Mmm…I think we should do something with the kids.


Qrow, choking and coughing on a sip of coffee: Wh-what kids!?!


Winter, folding the newspaper and places it on the table, narrowing her eyes: My sister’s team. I’d take them. You can take their little boyfriends.


Qrow, squints his eyes, pointing: My nieces don’t have any boyfriends. You should know, you’ve met their dad.


Qrow, shrugs, drinking more coffee: Besides. I’m busy today.


Winter, grabbing the newspaper and walks over, points to an advertisement: Oh? Afraid we’d beat you?


Qrow, glances at the paper then shifts his eyes back up to Winter, in a growling voice: You’re on /Schnee/.
