Drabble: Eye of the Storm

Author's notes: Amanda drabble written for the highlander100 Challenge #90: "Change"
Disclaimers: Davis Panzer claim they own Amanda. She disagrees.



Amanda liked it fast.

Fast cars, fast trips, quick changes and quick escapes. The oldest beautiful things protected by the hottest new technology. Fun.

Some Immortals settled down for decades in one place, but what was the point? You'd fall in love with that life, and then it'd be time to move on. It made her sad, and that was the one luxury she couldn't afford.

Sometimes, even Amanda needed refuge from the whirlwind. Rebecca had provided that sanctuary. Now she was gone. But some things never changed. Duncan was still using the same name.

"Why, hello there, lover boy."

Oh, very thoughtful -- I think I understand about how one gets too used to being in one place. And it sums Amanda up *perfectly*.

Thank you, elistaire! Some Immortals survive by holding on to whatever they can. Amanda survives by letting go.

*nods* Amanda always had a home, as long as Rebecca lived.
