Drabble: After Nick's Flight

Tonight Amanda went dancing. Grieving, in her own way.

She scored some pills from a pierced boy near the speakers.

Then she danced, a wisp of black silk drifting from denim to leather. The flashing lights glinted off her platinum hair, fell into her pupils, blown alien-wide. Her hips ground out a seductive rhythm, strangely innocent of pounding dance beats and faceless partners. She left traces of lipstick on their skin, a bright smile contradicting her tears.

Amanda hasn't tried to shake me since Nick left. She won't be going home alone. I'll be Watching over her.

You know, it occurred to me this morning, thinking about this little snippet, that if I were to write a Mary Sue? He/she would so be Amanda's watcher. *g*

vivid... I'm not too up on Raven lore, is Joe watching her?

Thank you! I'm better at dialogue than description, so I'm practicing.

I'm no Raven expert myself, but I would say that this is another Watcher. I have a feeling all of Amanda's Watchers tend to fall for her, just a little.

I liked this. I wonder if these are the Watcher's inner thoughts, or what he writes in her journal, though....
