Another beautiful commission by Jodeeeart!
“’Does this make me a powerful corn-goddess, then?’ Anika lifts her long hair from where it hangs down the front of her body almost to her hips and tosses it backwards toward Sonehso:wa where it slips over his arm and shoulder with the wind and settles between them. He laughs heartily, returning to his characteristic jocular manner.
'No, Jitkwa:’e, but I think you are blessed by her spirit.' He takes a section of her hair and runs it through his fingers.
'Oh. I was hoping I could be an almighty goddess and all mankind would worship my magnificent golden hair.' Anika brings her arms out to the sides, turning her head as if she is looking down upon bowing masses at her feet.
“Hmmm.” Is all Sonehso:wa says in reply, letting the evidence of his amusement shine through in the sound. Anika leans back against Sonehso:wa’s chest with a low chuckle and he loosely wraps one arm around her waist and takes the reins from her with the other. She finds it endearing that he has given her a nickname simply for the color of her hair. His easy sense of humor makes what could be an arduous experience so much more agreeable. When he shamelessly flirts with her she often catches herself flirting back.” - Misguided, chapter 13 “Awakening”
