A Fluffy Winter Solstice & Star Eve 🌟
Premise: On a date with Laz, the night before the SkyFall
(working title honestly dkfjklyjh)begins. We go to the Star Eve festival in the heart of Adavellana together and have a wonderfully romantic night under the dazzling lights of the city.
The snow stings the tip of my nose and I scrunch it up, disgruntled. I hear a cool laugh beside me and turn my head, beaming up at my beloved as he strolls alongside me. The lights all around us glow behind his head, a soft halo of light. He looks peaceful and cosy, and my heart clenches happily at the sight. The red scarf wrapped around both our necks and our gloved hands clasped together in his coat pocket keep us hip-to-hip as we continue along the path, admiring the festival bursting to life around us.
Laz’s gaze doesn’t waver from mine. He’s so gorgeous I can hardly stand it. The strong planes of his cheekbones, the sharp intellect in his gaze… Stars above I can’t stop staring at this mans mouth. I finally manage to drag my gaze back up to his and a blush takes up residence on my cheeks. Now having been caught staring at his lips, I scramble for something to say to take the attention off my warm face.
“Your hand is awfully cold for someone adjusted to this weather,” I accuse, feeling the chill from his fingers through my glove.
“I don’t feel the cold, my body can still physically get cold my dear.” He explains, tugging me gently through the sea of party-goers. His gaze fixed up ahead. Whatever he’s dragging me towards has gathered quite the crowd.
We push our way through the throng of people, intent on getting to the front. I carefully manoeuvre my way around a Cheshire and a Merrow in a heated argument. The tang of magic already swirled around them and I had no intention of being caught in the middle of that.
An excited chatter can be heard coming from the other merrygoers. Two children with fluffy mittens and earmuffs to match giggle as they try to catch snowflakes on their tongues. An older fae with ribbons and bells adorning his tufted tail prepares to lead a group of carollers into the next song. All around there are plenty more people; humans, fae and others alike coming together for the biggest festival Adavellana throws.
We break through the herd and I take in the sight before me.
