I should start all my writing projects like I started this one – with an ink pen, a piece of paper, a bit of dialogue, and a big black smudge on my left pinkie.
Anyway, this is a thoroughly random (and, in my totally biased opinion, fairly adorable) conversation between Shizukera and Serreina about gardening. Like the title says, it’s a work in progress. I plan to add narrative and whatnot to expand it into a tiny short story. For now, however, you can has cute dialogue!
Demon hunter + death knight + gardening = LOL.
“Shizukera. What are you doing?”
“Yeah! I’ve been told I have quite the green thumb.”
“ … green thumb?”
“It’s a human expression. It means you’re good at growing things, and look! I am! See my great big garden?”
“It looks and smells very nice.”
“Thanks, but you can’t eat it yet. Nothing is ripe, except the flowers. You want to try growing something? You might have a green thumb too!”
“I am a death knight, Shizukera. Things die when I touch them. I do not have a ‘green thumb’; I have a black thumb of death and desiccation.”
“Oh. I guess that’s true. Want some flowers, though? They taste really good. I know because I tried some earlier.”
“No, thank you. They’re not for eating, you know.”
“Okay, suit yourself. More for me!”
[Shizu munches a flower, purrs, and goes back to gardening.]
