The Jarod and Kyle Refuge
(Drank hot chocolate tonight (with soy milk), not tea, and while I should now be asleep for pure exhaustion alone, this popped into my head. Just a drabble, a true holiday story is in the works, to be posted before New Year's, hopefully.)|
Title: Winter Wonderland
AN: NO connection to my on-going (and still incomplete) AU, NONE.
Snow outside the window, soft and white; heavy. Still coming down. Ten - if not more - inches on the ground at least, and with no signs of stopping. Would be cold, and wet.
But it was warm inside. Heat roared from the old radiator, crackling occasionally with life. Their pants and socks dried on top. He smelled the pot of soup on the stove, it came from a can, organic and lentils, but Jarod promised him it tasted good. He was more interested in the coffee (and tea) Jarod promised him after, and the cookies he knew Jarod had hid in the pantry.
He almost smiled, tiny and contained; pressed his palm to the window. He wondered, but then he had never before built a snowman.
