[fic] Sleeping Beauty by [livejournal.com profile] girlofprey

Title: Sleeping Beauty // Series: Tales of the City // Author: [livejournal.com profile] girlofprey  // Rating: G // Notes/Warning: 443 words, Olga-centric

In the stillness, she starts telling herself stories, in fragments, bits and pieces. Old memories play themselves out in her mind, and the details give her seemingly no end of pleasure. The feel of a sword in her hands, the weight of it. The panting of a horse, post-gallop, in a silent forest. The way Geser looked at her, that night, in the hotel foyer. The way the air flows through feathers as you swoop down for a kill. The endless starriness of the night sky. Bread and soup. Hot showers.
