Holy crap I crawled out of my hidey hole to do one of these finally lmao thanks @laraslandlockedblues for finally tagging after I was a lil butthead 🤣🤣
Anyway this is from my Pokémon Sw/Sh alternate timeline AU. Idk what’s up with the formatting, I’m on mobile and the app is shitting itself.
Where’s Becquerel?” Lily looked up and saw Bede scanning the crowd curiously.
“He’s with Hop’s mum.” The words were listless on her tongue, tasteless and empty. Her voice felt like it belonged to someone else. “And Leon.”
“Hm.” The sound of shuffling, and of boots squelching in mud. “You told him to do that, I presume?”
“Yeah. They need him more than me right now.” She stared straight ahead as she spoke, her eyes boring holes through the casket in front of her. The rain began to intensify. She shuffled forward under the canopy, one foot in front of the other.
Why couldn’t she cry? She mumbled the question under her breath and watched the air fog up in front of her. Why couldn’t she cry?
“Some things hurt too much to feel them right away. It doesn’t make you a bad person to feel numb for a while.”
She looked up and stared at Bede for a moment, watched the way the wind whipped stray wisps of his sandy hair into his face. “Why are you here?” She asked finally. “Why are you being so nice to me?”
His face twitched, almost imperceptibly, before he looked away, tilted his head back and stared at the sky. “I know what it’s like to lose people,” he said finally. He extended a hand. “You deserved better, and so did he.”
We love pain and suffering in this house. :’)
Holler if you want me to tag you and I didn’t. :D
