Winter Snowfall

A/N: This is just a little short that I decided to do at *looks at time* 11:10 pm. Hm. On Friday December 12th, 2003. Yeah, well. Right. On with the show. Now I just have to figure out what this will be about. (Whatever the summary is, it's correct, don't judge by my babblings)

Liarra lay her head against her small brick house, legs laid out in front of her. She stared into the sky, an idle expression on her face. She heard small footsteps on the newly fallen snow around her.

"What is it?" she asked. She had no idea who it was when hands put themselves on top of her eyes. "Mm…" she thought. "Momma?" she asked. Liarra sighed. "Guess not, Papa?" when there was no answer, she sighed an started to name all of her brothers, then Allen and then-"Damion?" The hands were removed off of her face.

"Took you a while." said Damion. The grin on his face was apparent. Liarra hopped onto her feet and wiped the snow off of herself.

"What do you want to do?" she asked.

"I don't know." said Damion with a look on his face that told otherwise.

"What?" she asked again. Damion picked her up, holding her like a baby, and ran towards the pond. Liarra screamed in delight as she was raced through the forests. She clutched at his neck so as not to fall of while this was happening. Eventually she was laid down next to the lake, where she, Damion and Allen had gone skating the year before. She breathed in the fresh air and relished it. Damion took out his shoes, he had come prepared this time. Liarra had not. Damion, in an act of kindness, gave her the shoes instead of wearing them himself. For his own feet he ripped off a piece of cloth from his own clothing.

Damion raced onto the ice. "Be careful!" called Liarra. The last and first time they had skated in this lake she had fallen in.

"I will be!" said Damion as though talking to his mother. Liarra laughed. She daintily put her foot down on the ice, then did so again, and so on and so forth. Eventually though, she became tired of it and just skated.

"Damion!" she called. "Come over here!" he did as told. "You always brag about being so fast." she grinned. "See if you can catch me." and so she sped across the lake, not looking back. Damion, although surprised, came right after her at a surprising rate.

"Catch me if you can!" she called, not realizing the truth to her words.

Okay, so what do you think? I WANT TO KNOW! I really do value your opinion and I'd love to hear your advice. Pretty please?
