Sunshine

She opened the glass door as quietly as she could, and stepped out onto the balcony. There was barely enough room out there for her, crowded as it was with the vegetable garden, but she managed to work her way over near the railing.

Sunlight.

She tipped her head back, basking in it.

The shields extended a few feet beyond the Tower walls - no one outside could see or sense her, but Halloran worried anyway. So technically she wasn't supposed to be outside at all.

But every so often, you need the sun on your face.

She grinned, breeze teasing coppery hair out around her; she sighed happily.

But was not confident enough to actually touch the railing and lean out, or stay there long.

Someday. Someday, they'll find the true Lishaya... someday, the Council will be overthrown. And then I can go to the park again, and the farmer's market. Then I can go anywhere I want.

But for now... she cast a wistful look over her shoulder as she turned to go back inside.

As usual, I am posting in no particular chronological order; as usual, I will post a chronological guide tomorrow afternoon.

I am ouchie.

I am tempted to read, because I have the Snakes on a Plane issue of Entertainment Weekly, a new issue of Scientific American Mind, and the new Ellen Kushner book all sittin' right here.

Time for more coffee!

This is Blogathon 2006. I'm posting every half hour for 24 hours, to raise money for RAINN.

Yay! We're at $2,528.60! Let's see if we can push it to $3,000!

Remember, every dollar facilitates one phone call to RAINN's hotline.

Sponsor Me!
