Challenge: Guava #20 - I'm A Big Boy Now
Extras: Pocky
Word Count: 100
Summary: Storms and arguments go together for Arkadiy and Vanya.
Notes: More Arkadiy!angst...

The rain hissed over the rooftop and pitter-pattered steadily into the gutter. The heavy atmosphere muted the crash of the door as he stormed out, his fury rivalling the embracing tempest.

Inside a voice cut through the static, the tone both frantic and furious; it went ignored in favour of the incessant shhh and the soothing chill.

The rain turned traitor and concealed her approach. “Arkadiy, you cannot live like this.”

“I’m a big boy,” he whispered, eyes closed. “I can live how I want.”

Gentle hands gripped his limp fingers. They stood in silence as raindrops masked his despair.

Aww! Poor Arkadiy! Though, I do have to mention that most boys who use the "I'm a big boy now..." excuse normally use it because they aren't old enough ;) Nicely written. Storms seem to follow this man. Or maybe he generates them... :)

Vanya has this weird ability to make Arkadiy feel like a little kid - mostly because, frankly, he's acting like one when she does it! XD He's definitely prone to acting his shoe size and not his age...

I've still not quite worked out why he has his worst blow-ups during the bad weather. They must put him on edge or something. Maybe I should try actually exploring my characters more and not just let them do things... >_>;;

Oh, Arkadiy. I love the description in this. It's so vivid and original and cool. Great job.

Aww I'm glad you like it, although it did drive me utterly nuts! *g* Well, it's still driving me utterly nuts, I'll have to work on that next time... :s
