Noel Streatfeild drabble: Sunday Afternoon, Before Teatime [Petrova, Mr Simpson, general]
Title: Sunday Afternoon, Before Teatime
Fandom: Noel Streatfeild, Ballet Shoes
Characters: Petrova, Mr Simpson, Nana
Summary: Inclement weather won't stop Petrova from doing what she loves.
Note: For magnetic_pole, who wanted a childhood book like Noel Streatfeild, "cold weather."
That January Sunday the wind whipped their faces raw coming back from church, so that Nana looked at Petrova dubiously before permitting her go to the garage with Mr. Simpson.
"But it's a mustard plaster for you if you catch cold," she warned ominously.
Petrova didn't care. She gave a little skip as she and Mr. Simpson went out, and he looked down at her and smiled.
"I see someone is in good spirits."
"Yes." Petrova beamed back. "It doesn't matter how nasty the weather is when I'm allowed to spend the afternoon learning more about what I really like."
