Who: Halle & Orion What: Exploring Siem Reap When: June 8th, early evening Where: Siem Reap - around the town Rating: Probably lowish? Prompt:Glass Slipper
Being a little further from the temples was nice; every step that Halle took away from the holy site helped her to feel a little more stable, a little more in control of her own body. She could remember, vaguely, a feeling like this one when she had first possessed Katya's body, but it had subsided quickly as the other consciousness faded into sleep. Years later, she had just been unprepared for the sensation of a contest for control.
But everything was okay. Siem Reap was a little further out, and Orion was excellent company. They had found noodles, of course, along with a wide variety of other local foods to sample – savory BBQ pork and rice with green tomatoes, delicious fish curry, chili-dusted sour fruits. While the food was good, though, the experience was more fun for Halle. The Night Market was delightful, full of people and things to see, everything from kitschy souvenirs to carefully-crafted handmade goods.
One of the stalls was filled with handmade spiritual items, including charms to ward off spirits and hand-written prayers for exorcism. Halle scrunched her nose at these, idly leaning up against her companion's side as they browsed. "Not the things I'd be shopping for, myself."
