Cordelia Fic: Inflammatory

Inflammatory

Three years ago to the day, it had been hot -- the hottest day of that summer. I wouldn't have started a fire at all if I hadn't stumbled over it.

It was a tiny wooden button. I was surprised that my husband had not observed it.

For the first time, I was angry. Angry enough to start a fire in my torrid sitting room and watch the cheerily inoffensive thing burn.

Today there was no anger.

There was hope. There was excitement.

There were new buttons and new blankets.

There were nascent dreams.

But most of all there was fear.

Thoroughly intrigued, but cannot quite place the context...hiatus, and end of hiatus?

Thank you.

It's pre-hiatus.

In a really complicated AU. :P
