Prompt: [community profile] inkstains contest 65: horizon


She keeps her gaze fixed on the horizon.

It’s all she can do, the only place to look. She has to keep walking. She knows that somewhere, far ahead of her, is somewhere she can go, somewhere she can be safe.

Rating: G
Prompt: [community profile] inkstains: "love or duty"

Rating: PG-13, I guess, for death
Prompt: [community profile] inkstains contest 43: alone at the end
Notes: Depressing! Whee!


One morning Deri woke up and she wasn’t coughing anymore.

It was almost hard to believe. She pushed herself all the way upright—she’d been sitting half-up anyway, pillows and a blanket piled behind her, to help with her breathing during the night—and took a careful breath. Then she let it out. There was no tickle in her throat, her lungs didn’t spasm. She took a deeper one. She still didn’t cough.
