The Winter Wait

1. Shoveling and Cocoa

Caitlyn, the Sheriff of Piltover, steps outside into the crisp morning air. The snow had fallen heavily overnight, blanketing the walkway in a thick layer of white. She reaches for the shovel resting against the wall and begins clearing the snow with practiced efficiency. As she works, her breath forms puffs of mist in front of her face, and her cheeks turn rosy from the cold.

After finishing shoveling, Caitlyn retreats back inside the cozy warmth of her home. She prepares a steaming mug of hot cocoa, the rich scent of chocolate filling the room. She wraps her hands around the mug, feeling the warmth seep into her chilled fingers. Taking a sip, she savors the comforting sweetness of the drink, a small smile playing on her lips.

Settling into a comfortable chair by the window, Caitlyn gazes out at the snowy landscape, watching as the sun begins to peek through the clouds. She knows that soon her wife, Vi, will return from her patrol, and they will share a quiet moment together before the bustling day begins.

2. The Late Arrival

Vi had lost track of time while skiing, the rush of the wind in her hair and the adrenaline of speeding down the snowy slopes had captivated her. As she finally made her way back home, the sky had turned into a canvas of colors, painting a beautiful sunset over the horizon. But as she entered their cozy little cottage, she noticed the dimly lit room and her blue-haired wife, Caitlyn, sitting on the couch with a look of concern on her face.

Caitlyn had been waiting anxiously for Vi to return, the worry evident in her eyes. She had tried to keep herself occupied by reading a book, but her mind kept drifting back to her partner out in the cold. Vi could see the slight frown on Caitlyn’s face, and she immediately felt guilty for causing her wife to worry.

“I’m so sorry, love. I didn’t realize how late it had gotten. The skiing was just so exhilarating, I lost track of time,” Vi apologized, walking over to Caitlyn and wrapping her in a warm embrace.

Caitlyn’s worried expression melted away as she returned the embrace, relieved to have Vi back safe and sound. They spent the rest of the evening snuggled up on the couch, sharing stories of their day and enjoying each other’s company.

3. Reunion

Vi describes her delay with a thrilling skiing adventure that brought warmth to the chilly winter evening. As she recounts the twists and turns of the slopes, her friends gather around, captivated by her tale. The fire crackles in the background, casting a cozy glow over the room as Vi’s animated gestures paint a vivid picture of her exhilarating escapade.

The snow-covered mountains glisten in the moonlight, and Vi’s eyes sparkle with the joy of reliving her daring feats. With each twist and turn of her story, the tension mounts, keeping her audience on the edge of their seats. The cold winter evening is quickly forgotten as they are transported to the snowy slopes where Vi fearlessly carved her way through the powder.

As the evening draws to a close, Vi’s friends thank her for sharing her adventure, their hearts warmed by the camaraderie and excitement of the evening. The bond between them deepens as they bask in the shared memories of the night, knowing that they will always have each other to rely on for warmth and support.
