Papaya #20 with Pocky

Author: Regret
Rating: G
Challenge: Papaya #20 - You Remind Me Of Someone
Extras: Pocky
Word Count: 100
Summary: Hundreds of millions of miles out, and too long after, Paradigm sees a familiar face.
Notes: Not that I'm leaping around the timeline or anything... I'm so far forward now this is just a scene that's lived in my head for two or three years. O_o It's quite nice to have it down now.

Goddamn backwater planet, why she'd landed here he didn't know. Chasing after psycho-blue-eyes, she zigzagged across the universe and he could only follow. Calf-deep in grass, Paradigm glared around and wished her tracker signal would reappear.

Something caught his eye and made his jaw drop. A face that looked far too familiar. A face that shouldn't look familiar, not out here where only fools trod.

Green eyes, a laughing mouth. Cropped hair - only blond - too like him, but he was dead, twice over now.

Paradigm couldn't believe it.

That stranger, against all odds, was wearing Maxim's body.
