Rated: General
Word Count: 100
Disclaimer: Post-evil-plot, but no particular spoilers.
A/N: This is meant to be subtle, but it seemed to barely register with the people I was actually playing with who knew all the backstory and characterization, so don't be alarmed if you're mystified.

The schoolyard was still, the sky still pink with dawn, when she arrived to assume her usual seat. The plastic bag went in her lap, and she dipped her hand in, scattering the contents over the courtyard.

Slowly the trees before her began to shiver. One bird, and then another and another opened beady eyes and fluffed gold-brown feathers, until the entire treeline seemed to come alive with rustling.

As one the flock rose, and a thousand sleek sparrows alighted on the asphalt and bench. Tiny claws prickled her shoulder. She smiled, offering a palmful of seed.

"Good Morning, Sunshine."
