(Drabble) Cinnamon is not the only chapstick

29th April 2009 (16:24)

This drabble is for immortality , who requested Kennedy/Satsu and suggested the title. It's set shortly after 'Swell'.


Cinnamon is not the only chapstick

The shopkeeper was giving them a fierce glare. Kennedy ignored her.

"How about this?" She pulled it from the rack, twisted the cap and tossed it over.

"I'm not into fruit flavours..." She tried it anyway, pulled a face, threw it onto the growing pile. "Now I taste of strawberry. Yuck."

"Hey, I like that flavour-- damn." She recognised Satsu's sudden grin.

"So... help get it off my lips."

She shouldn't. But there were sparkling eyes and half-parted breathless flavoursome lips and the angry shopkeeper watching and danger and thrills and...

...and she really did like the taste of strawberries.

Oh ev0l chapstick that induces cheating!

And damn, they're wasting a lot of perfectly good chapstick without paying for it. Or is some of that illicit bank robbery money funding this expedition? ;)

That was a subtle character detail, of the sort that can't really be elaborated on within the confines of a drabble. :-)

Kennedy is a child of privilege. She does what she wants and never has to care what other people think, because her family is rich enough that she can walk through life untouched by the problems normal people face. When she leaves the shop, she'll toss a high denomination banknote on the counter and walk out without bothering to pick up her change...

Naughty slayers.

You mean, they need a spanking?

Thanks!

Oooh, quite yummy. Very characteristic for Kennedy, actually; I liked your explanation of the 'growing pile', and the whole what-the-hell-make-out-with-Satsu thing is rather characteristic as well.

I do object to the title, though; from my recollections and Wikipedia's confirmation, it was cinnamon lip gloss. Big diff.

You're right; I just checked. I plead ignorance of all things women apply to their lips in mitigation. :-)

Thanks!
