Determined Dawn

This scene was inspired by a word prompt from the WriYe DreamWidth (the title).  I could have used any of a number of my characters, but I decided to go with Quinten…


Quinten yawned deeply and set his sketchbook to one side.  Then, he looked out the window towards the horizon.  The sun was just starting to brighten the sky.  With the light of day, he wouldn’t burn as some people supposed.  Instead, he would sleep.  It was near impossible to keep from sleeping when sunlight touched him.

He heaved a sigh and glanced over at Felicity.  “I hate this time of year,” he said, rubbing at his eyes.  “Nights aren’t near long enough.”  As the sun peered over the horizon, he slumped back in the chair and slept.

Chuckling softly, Felicity tucked a blanket around his shoulders.  “That dawn is just determined to ruin your night, is it, Quinten?” she murmured, even though she knew he couldn’t hear her.  Patting his hand, she turned and left the room.
