The two snowies were standing in the snow, in front of a line of sheared trees, looking for all the world like they'd been out for nothing more than a pleasant walk. Dlameda was struggling with something dark in the snow, but it was too heavy for him.

It wasn't very large, maybe about as big as Dlameda was tall, but it was way, way too close, though it was out of range of her sling. Several more drifted above that one, but they were at least twice as high up. A few more drifted even higher.

Author's Notes

This story was written during the first Torn World Muse Fusion, in response to prompts from at least four people, as well as answering a question someone asked in the forums.
