He leans down to the sofa, touching her shoulder.

She awakens violently. Her voice rips apart the silence, her arm winging in an arc that cracks against the side of his head.

The stinging impact brings her fully awake and she rises to see him hunched away from her, one hand raised between her and the mask. She sits, breathing, feeling the shout still in her throat. She watches him.

He moves, straightening from his awkward pose. He takes a step away to face her, murmuring distantly polite apology.

She watches him.

He takes his leave, sketching a small bow out of habit and disappearing down the corridor.

She looks down, seeing the blood on the floor where he stood. Her eyes follow the shining drops marking his departure on the flagstones.

She does not apologise.


...He never wanted her to.
A minor incident of possession, taking place post-Imprisonment.

Love your style here. Reminds nebulously free verse.
Took me two times of reading it to understand what happened.
First time - wut? O.o
Then your description...
then the second time.
And then.
IT HIT ME.
WOW.
How much is in the last line. It's almost like a whole second chapter, you know.

Thank you! ^_^ It was a moment that hit me some time ago; this is just the first time it was coherent enough to write down. >.<

My brain keeps trying to reconcile the whole "Evey decides to stay" AU that I'm writing... I'm almost there, but it's been a strange trip.

I may end up writing this scene from V's perspective, come to think of it. Considering what he just put in my head (and I mean just put there, ack), it's no less disturbing. >.0

Thank you :) It seems the only way I can write about these (rather awful) moments is to do so with as few words as possible, almost like a screenplay. I'm glad that method seems to work! :phew:
