Title: Feeling the Cold
Prompt: Cold and (fanfic100 #62 – Snow)
Character: Susan Sto Helit
Susan understands that it is cold. When she concentrates…
Icy flakes fall upon her shoulders, white on dull grey. Her visibility is limited; people shuffle slowly along, unable to see the lamp-posts from five yards distant. Her boots tread through ankle-deep slurry, already grey with Anhk-Morpork's thousand pollutants.
Snow falls through her, tumbling through intangible non-flesh. Perhaps it accumulates on the curves of her ribcage.
She sees through the people scuffing their feet; they are atoms and dust of the future.
Her boots – what need of boots? – they mark footsteps in the snow.
No one remembers who stood there.
