Fic: ‘She could wear it. Really.’  
Title: She could wear it. Really.
Fandom: Offspring
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Season 2: before she goes on the double date with Billie and Mick.
Summary: She could wear the scarf. No harm would come of it.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

Nina has, as we see each episode, a lot of internal dialogue. It’s part of her charm. And I realised, after the last story, I’d not really touched upon that. It’s part of who she is. And as amusing as anything to watch!

I wanted a chance to practice writing it before anything else ventured forth. So, this is the practice!

Nina holds the scarf in her hand before flinging it to one side. It slithers down the end of the bed and puddles on the floor.

Billie said not to clutter, she tells herself firmly. I can do this. She squares her shoulders. No accessories.

But
, her eyes slide to the fallen piece of fabric, a scarf isn’t clutter. It’s something you put around your neck for decoration. For warmth.

It has a practical purpose.
She leans down to pick it up but stops her hand; it hovers above the fallen green and silver material. No, she admonishes, no scarf. But, she tilts her head, it’s my style. I can’t not wear a scarf. And it’s harmless. The world won’t end if I wear it.

She bites her bottom lip, narrowing her eyes. Nina, don’t pick it up!

She starts, straightening and spinning around. She releases a breath. Billie’s not there. It’s okay. It’s ...

Minutes later, she’s walking out the door with a long necklace swinging, cool against her skin.

Now, where did Billie say this was again?

You really capture Nina beautifully. Her internal dialogue is perfect here!

Her internal dialogue is perfect here!
Thank you! It was missing in the last story and I wrote this one and it's all internal dialogue! I should marry the action prose with the internal dialogue and see what happens!
