It’s snowing which is how she knows her lover is lying to her. Janeli is the only one who sees the flakes falling from the coffee shop ceiling, the only one who feels the bite of their chill on her skin, the only one who can see the way they fade away to nothing just a moment before they hit the ground.
She wraps the scarf around her neck more tightly, lets the hand-knitted wool turn her skin red, and taps her nails on the table.
Megan looks back at her with soft eyes, hands wrapped loosely around her tea (non-caffeinated). She looks like she’s telling the truth, calm and collected as she always is, but she’s not.
Janeli realizes that Megan doesn’t know that lie detecting is one of her skills. She can’t imagine how she doesn’t know–unless she thinks she’s doing something to stop Janeli from telling. She sniffs the air and smells magic–ozone and licorice, not her scent. She feels a curl of jealousy, of something dark and possessive, of something not human stirring in her DNA. Megan had gone to someone else for a glamor. Someone else had laid magic on her. Megan is hers in the only way a lover can belong to you. Intimately. Without restrictions or bars or–
“You don’t love me anymore,” Janeli repeats. Her voice is flat.
Megan meets her eyes evenly, body still loose. “I don’t.”
The snow begins to fall faster, small flecks of white swirling around them.
Janeli leans back and crosses her arms over her chest. The words hurt, of course they do, but they’re a lie. Why? “So you want to break up.”
“I do,” Megan says. Her eyes flick to the right, over Janeli’s shoulder, and then back again. As if she’d wanted to scan the room, but couldn’t. As if she was still hiding things from Janeli. “It’s what’s best for us.”
And the snow blinks out of existence.
Best? Janeli thinks with disbelief. She hides the curl of her lip in her coffee cup and very carefully keeps her baser nature locked down inside. How could she believe it’s best?
After much consideration and the help of my parabatai @booingalec, we’ve settled on a new url for me and it will be my permanent one - aside from Christmas and other holidays when I use a temporary one (i.e. spookyymalec).
As of November 1st, I will be changing my main url from fluffy-malec to whiskeybane :)
I will post again when I change it just to make sure the word gets out.
(I am so sorry for constantly changing it, this is the last time for a while i swearrr <3)
