Character/Pairing: light Jill/Mist
Summary: "It'd be much simpler if all wars could end this way. Without bloodshed or real fighting. Don't you think? We should make a revolutionary new way of waging war. Let's wage peace and love and friendship together, Jill!"
A/N: Set mid part three in RD, so possible spoilers for that. Inspired by a fanart from hanakago. Also for LinLin's Alphabet meme request (Neck - JillMist) for shoujoai100 (021. Friends) / The gauntlet 20. a light larger than the sun and the moon.
More International Day of Femmeslash stuffs.
There was a whole field of them. Tall flowers with thick stalks and sundisk heads turned towards the skies. Some had darker insides, like an eclipse, while others had merely a different shade of golden from the petals that fanned out in sharp contrast like the rays spanning outwards she'd seen on so many drawings.
The sky above was an incomparable blue, much more than Daein ever got.
"Jilll! Jill! Where are you!"
"I'm over here, in the fields."
Mist spun about, her right hand shading her eyes. The ruffles of her short yellow dress fanned like a bright, yellow flower.
"There you are!"
Before Jill could even utter another word, Mist was running, coming closer and flinging herself into Jill's arms. She laughed as a warm, fizzy feeling bubbled up in her.
"I missed you so much! I wrote and wrote and you never replied at all. I was so worried."
"I'm sorry! That lazy Haar must've lost it when he fell asleep while carrying the mail. And then he just wandered off. I swear, he's incorrigible sometimes," she said. Still, it was said with begrudging affection.
Mist held a flower to her nose, but seemed to find no discernible scent. When she let it go, Jill's wyvern tried the same, with similar results.
"The birds love the sunflower seeds. I've never tried them before. I wonder if they're good."
As if on cue, Jill's wyvern munched on a particularly large sunflower head. Mist and Jill looked at each other and stifled a giggle behind their hands.
"I'm so glad I didn't have to fight you, Jill. I know it must've been hard to turn your back on Daein again, but this way is much better. Maybe we can even get the rest of your compatriots to come over too. Then no one will have to die and everything can be peaceful again, right?"
"I'm glad too..." Jill said.
"It'd be much simpler if all wars could end this way. Without bloodshed or real fighting. Don't you think? We should make a revolutionary new way of waging war. Let's wage peace and love and friendship together, Jill!"
Mist bent a stalk and tickled Jill's neck with it, and then they were embracing and laughing, both so happy to be alive. It was only a sneeze from Jill's wyvern that broke up their utopia of two in the flower field.
"Oh yeah. Everyone's waiting for you. I wasn't going to serve any dinner without you."
"Did you bring your horse?"
"No, I left her in the stables. I think she got a pebble in her horseshoes last time I took her out. I've got to get her checked out by the blacksmith. Why?"
"It'll be much faster if we fly back," Jill said. She smiled mischievously.
"Yes! I'd love to, Jill! It's been so long since we've flown together. Remember back when you used to have to rescue me all the time? Well I'm not quite so weak now!"
Jill whistled, and her Wyvern rose its head, and stared at her. It was at full attention. She patted its long neck and motioned Mist over.
"Hop on, he's doesn't bite."
Jill climbed on first, and held out her hand for Mist to take. When she'd finally gotten situated, Mist wrapped her arms tight about Jill.
There was an explosion of yellow petals bursting as her wyvern flapped up and away into the endless sky.
