Charity had lost track of how long she'd been outside; as she read by the light the light of lantern finishing the last few pages of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein. Occasionally, from the small camp she'd set up, she flicked her wand and her tea kettle would rise into the air, refilling her cup. As she looked into the sky during a less than climatic moment, she noticed that the moon was full in the sky. What time was it?
She glanced at her watch, sighing when it read midnight. With a burst of anger that she was not finished-- lost more in her thoughts than her actual reading-- she unclipped the watch from her wrist and tossed it away into the lake. She couldn't help but smirk, was that the literal meaning of time flying? She then laid back on her back, holding the book over her head as she went back to reading. However, the watch was flung back at her and hit her in the head as she sat up and looked back at the lake with horror, the squid splashing away in its own amusement.
"Bloody squid.." she whispered, tossing the small, silver time piece away again. She didn't hear it make it's typical thud on the ground, and leaned back-- had she just hit someone with a watch?
