Fic: Butterflies (Drabble)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Round 20 started, the page is still empty, and here in Germany May Day is nearly over. So I decided to get things started with a quick drabble. It’s also my very first entry at Seasonal Spuffy, and I’m pretty nervous…
It’s not fitting the round’s theme, though, but I wrote for the kick-off GIF, that’s something, right?

Thanks to the wonderful mods who keep Seasonal Spuffy alive! I’m proud to participate this year!

English isn’t my first language, and I couldn’t find a beta on such a short notice (this wasn’t planned at all), but since I have to post until midnight in my time zone, I’ll just hope there aren’t any weirdnesses. (Don’t hesitate to tell me if there are mistakes, though. Please.)

So, here goes…

She lies awake for far too long that night, tossing and turning. She tries everything – counting sheep, drinking warm milk, even reading – nothing helps. She seems to be unable to shut up her stupid brain. Her thoughts circle around that one thing she would rather forget – his lips on hers.

They were so soft.

And then the weird look Willow gave her when she told her that she loved him, just before she thought of Riley.

And didn’t have the tiniest flutter in her stomach.

His lips…
She groans, gripping her belly tightly.

Maybe she can slay the butterflies.
