This is my gift for my FenHawke Secret Santa/Gift exchange buddy @sharkberries and her Hawke, Jaq! Happy New Year! I hope you enjoy. It was meant to be fluffier, but I ended up just going for sweet.
A Late Gift ~1400 words For context, it’s set a little while after their first night in Act 2, after things between them have settled somewhat, but before everything else in Kirkwall gets completely out of hand :) Hope you enjoy!
Jaq holds her breath, stamping her feet in the snow and letting
the air puff out of her lungs, a visible cloud hanging in front of her face.
Then she lifts her hand to the door, and knocks.
And knocks again.
When there’s still no answer on the third knock, she huffs
in frustration and pushes the door open anyway.
