Word of the Day
Pairings/Characters: Heero, Relena; slight 1xR if you squint and tilt your head
Author's Note: So I've seen these "Word of the Day" fics, where it's essentially a collection of drabbles and one-shots with the prompt being the word of the day (a prime example of, "exactly what it says on the tin"). Anyway, I've always wanted to try my hand at it, and this is the result. My words, instead of coming from Dictionary dot com like most of them, come from Wordsmith dot org. Really, I have a wide variety to choose from, as I do use the Vocabology app on my phone (because it's awesome), but I really like the ones from Wordsmith.
Anyway, I won't be doing daily updates (I'm good, I'm not *that* good), but expect two or three uploaded at a time. Enjoy!
Numinous - supernatural, mysterious, or awe-inspiring
"I don't see what the big fuss is about," Heero said as Relena stretched herself in the backseat of their rented SUV. "It's simply the collision of energetic charged particles in the atmosphere, presenting in the shifting colors visible to the human eye."
Relena let out a snort of disappointment. "I know that, but it doesn't change that it's still magnificent to behold." She propped herself up on her elbows and looked at her friend and bodyguard. "Are you really so cold that even the sight of the aurora borealis doesn't do anything to you?"
Shifting in the driver's seat so he could look out the windshield and up at the dancing red and green lights, Heero merely shrugged.
"You're impossible," Relena muttered as she laid herself back down and gazed up through the moon roof.
The car was silent except for their breathing, until Heero finally spoke. "You know, if you think that they're pretty from here, you should see them from space."
"Is that a promise?"
Her only response was silence and a smile in the darkness.
